While Iran exports soldiers to Iraq, things are deteriorating at home.
Three senior members of the Iranian regime have been assassinated; two of which took place very close to the Capitol city.
More interesting is the fact that there appears to be open revolt within the country after a surprise announcement by the government to ration gasoline
Following the rationing of gasoline in Iran, many people waited in lines to fill their tanks before the price hike until the last hours of Wednesday, June, 26, 07 in Tehran and other Iranian cities. The rationing caused angry mobs to attack the gas stations and set them on fire.
BBC and Reuters initially reported that at least one Tehran gas station is burning in protest. But Pajamas Media has learned the number is more like fifteen. (Some sites like Anti-Mullah are reporting as many as fifty.)
A left-wing Iranian website, SJK, which has several videos and photographs, has reported from Tehran that people ignited tires and other flammable materials to start fires in the city. They put police cars, blocked roads and entered into clashes with the security forces, basijis (regime vigilantes) and regular police.
According to SJK, more than 15 gas stations were set on fire in the early hours of morning. People have also attacked one city hall building in Tehran. The protests included government banks and government-run supermarkets, which were ransacked by ordinary people. It took hours for security forces to gain control and some forces fled the scene to safety.
Regime change in Iran is desperately needed for the health and security of the Middle East.
One could hope that we were behind the scenes helping the disintegration of malignant regime; it would have been a smart move. But regardless of whether or not we had a hand, or if Iran's problems are a natural consequence of their own policies, let's hope it continues.
