Iran Continues Assault On Opposition Leaders

An opposition remains in Iran despite repeated efforts by the government to crush its spirit. Opposition leader, Mehdi Karroubi charged the government was “plagued with despotism” even as thugs and government agents lashed out at all those who oppose the regime of President Ahmadinejad. Karroubi raise a question that has never been answered, particularly after Ahmadinejad “won” the presidential election last June: “How can one believe that a president with so many objections against him such as inflation, unemployment…gets more votes than he got in his first election?” The answer is quite simple and it is unfortunate that Karroubi still does not grasp the nature of government in Iran. The object of securing power in Iran is to mess up the government with your incompetence. All one needs in such situations is to secure the blessings of Ayatollah Khamenei and incompetence becomes a virtue.

Oh well, according to the government news agency, Fars, it is Karroubi who is the evil one and that is why thousands gather outside his home to hurl invectives and objects in order to demonstrate their love for the incompetent Ahmadinejad. Where did Karroubi ever get the weird idea the object of government was to Solve problems!!
