Paranoia Paralyzes Iranian Government Thinking

The current Iranian government is led by individuals whose thinking is best guided by the power of paranoia which explains for them any and all events in life. The Ahmadinejad government arrested Iranian employees at the British Embassy in Tehran on charges they had played a “significant role” in the demonstrations by millions of people against the fraudulent election for president. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei apparently has decided to end his role as a spiritual leader and become part of the thugs who presently run Iran. He denounced “interfering statements” by western officials and appealed to all involved in the dispute “not to stroke the emotions of the young.” Unfortunately, his statements demanding severe punishment of all who demonstrated has done more to “stroke the emotions of the young” than anything said by western officials or Barack Obama.

Mir Hossein Mousavi, who most probably won the presidential election, continues to defy the Ayatollah and his henchmen in the government. The attacks on Iranian employees at the British Embassy most probably stem from the decision of BBC to launch a Persian TV program which offers accurate news for the people of Iran as to what is going on inside their nation.
