Trump Tweets Support For People Of Iran As Revolutionary Guard Declares Protests Over

Update: With somewhat fascinating timing, perhaps nudged by The CIA, President Trump just tweeted his support for the people of Iran:

This appears to be about the most direct indication of America's plan to intervene in Iran that we have seen yet - direct from the thumbs of POTUS.

While confusion and skepticism remains high towards the 'progress' of both sides in Iran, it appears the government is pushing back hard today as State TV broadcasts images of 1000s of Iranians taking part in pro-government rallies and the Revolutionary Guard declaring the protests are over.

With about 20 dead, including several policemen, since Iran's protests broke out last week, today appears to be a full court press from the establishment to quell the latest uprising.

As Bloomberg reports, Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards Corps declared an end to the unrest that has roiled the Islamic Republic over the past week.

“The enemies should know that threats against Iran’s defense and security no longer work,” the state-run Islamic Students News Agency reported, citing guards commander Mohammad Ali Jafari.

The “sedition” has ended, he said.

And alongside this, Reuters  reports thousands of Iranians took part in pro-government rallies in several cities on Wednesday in a state-sponsored show of force.

State television broadcast live pictures of rallies in the southwestern cities of Kermanshah and Ilam and in the northern city of Gorgan, where marchers waved Iranian flags and pictures of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

In the Shi‘ite holy city of Qom, demonstrators chanted “death to American mercenaries”. There were also rallies in Isfahan, Iran’s third largest city, and Abadan and Khorramshahr in the oil-rich southwest, state TV footage showed.

Marchers voiced support for Khamenei, chanting, “The blood in our veins is a gift to our leader,” and, “We will not leave our leader alone.” They accused the United States, Israel and Britain of inciting the unrest and shouted, “The seditionist rioters should be executed!”

Hours earlier, Khamenei had accused Iran’s foes of fomenting the protests, some of which have criticized him by name and called for him to step down.

The Supreme Leader didn’t say who those enemies were, but some international leaders have come out in support of the demonstrations.

President Donald Trump in recent days has tweeted encouragement to the protesters, while unleashing harsh criticism on the Iranian leadership. “The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime,” he posted Tuesday, adding that Iranians were suffering from “little food, big inflation and no human rights.”

Additionally, WSJ reports, authorities have arrested hundreds of demonstrators in recent days as the protests spread and the Interior Ministry warned against unauthorized gatherings. More than 20 people have been confirmed dead.

Riot police, plainclothes officers and members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps - a force under the command of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei - have been seen on the streets controlling and dispersing crowds.

Of course, it is unclear what exactly one can believe in Iran - just as in the US - but for sure the Iran establishment is not about to lay down and accept a challenge to its control.

Apparently a solid and increasing majority (65% or so) of the Iranian public are pro-intervention in Syria etc. against ISIS et al.

So, these Iranian people will be "supported" by the West? What if it gets to 80% or something? Is that the tipping point where we need to send them some howitzers and stuff to battle ISIS? Maybe "show them how it's done"? :P

Pick a democratic country, any democratic country.  I don't care which one.  I'm guessing that roughly half of their population wants their present government to be overthrown.  I'm erring on the side of caution here.

Of course, the other side of the argument is what they want to replace it with.  We're not going to hear about that bit now, are we?

And, of course, we're never going to hear about the banksters.
Speaking of which, quick, someone take an inventory.  Has Iran still got any gold?  Just wondering...

Do all these actions from the US officials count as interference into another country's affairs,or only imaginary Russian ones do?

It is obvious that this was a coordinated attack on Iran.We know who's behind it:those who LOST the war in Syria. It followed the old and tired See Eye Ayy/Mo$$ad/Em Eye 6 script,we know  it now by heart ,we've seen it in Ukraine,Syria,etc.

And other questions for the zionist trolls here:can you make any comment about the thousands protesting the Mileikovski Satanyahoo's corruption(for 1 week now) ?

How about the massive Palestinian protest and non stop killing of unarmed civilian Palestinian population there?

Hey,the Donald,do you have anything to say about the freedom fighters in Palestine,killed by the chosen?They are unarmed.9 year old children.A double amputee.A 16 year old girl(Ahed Amimi,the Jean D'Arc of Palestine,arrested because she hit a chosen soldier,who hit her first.

And to cut to the chase regarding IRAN:

-all MSM,US/UK/Israhelli/SA officials,including the Donald,our Shabbos-Goy-in-chief, are spreading the following lies,in a coordinated manner(that's how I know they are behind this);they did not show the massive pro government rally.Or they tried to say it was against the government;they showed scenes fro a film,or a 2011 rally in S America and presented this as the Iranian protest

-the snipers killing civilians and many police members were from the crowd,shooting both demonstrators and police(as in Ukraine,see the recent Italian documentary,showing Georgian snipers,hired by the current Ukrainian government ,for this;not a peep about this in US/UK,etc)Same modus operandi; I don't know about you,but I put 2 and 2 together.

-the western MSM and officials are presenting the victims as shot by Iranian police,like the 13 year old,but this is not what his family says,some of those" killed by the regime",like the boy, just posted saying he's alive.Same as it happened in 2009 ,when the Beast tried a color revolution in Iran

-all these protest agains the government were done by 70 people in one town,100 in another,and so on:a minuscule amount,who set things on fire,most were armed,attacked police/military stations and were presented as "peaceful demonstration "by the fake news

-our stupid zionist UN envoy,the one still looking on the world map for Binomo,tried to summoned UNSC for this? what a joke:there are thousands protesting in Israhell,1000 cars set on fire in France,did we call for UNSC?how about the real reason like thousands civilians killed by SA et comp in Yemen?

-all these proven lies,from the same usual suspects,tell me who is behind it

exactly.Even worse,a chosen one.

I am waiting to see how the US MSM(and other western media)are going to sell the American sheeple a US war against Iran,how are they  going to support the Donald in doing this,after they opposed him and peddled Russian interference, for 2 years now.

It's going to be interesting.

Observe how "united" the opposition to the Donald and the Donald administration are regarding this issue,how united the R and D Senators/Congressmen are here. The same way with every other major zionist issue(like for example the Patriot act,the Liberty act).

Any other proof needed that they are ALL part of the swamp?

(From Wiki..) Michael Richard Pompeo is an American politician and government official serving as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency since January 23, 2017 after being nominated by President Donald Trump. Previously, he was the member of the United States House of Representatives for KS's 4 from 2011 to 2017. and (from : http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2017/10/13/cia-director-mike… ) here's what he thinks ;

"Then he segued into a comparison between the CIA’s operations and the conduct of Iranian intelligence, arguing that early Americans were understandably reluctant to “get into the spy business,” but the modern CIA defends the Constitution, strictly abides by American law, and works with “a sense of duty, purpose, and righteous resolve.”

“Let’s compare this with the intelligence service of the world’s largest state sponsor of terror, the Islamic Republic of Iran,” invited Pompeo. “The MOIS and IRGC intel services simply can’t be as effective as the CIA. They serve multiple purposes. In fact, defending Iran from foreign entities is but a very small part of what they do.”

Ha Ha Ha......

 

... (from https://www.voanews.com/a/us-lawmakers-promise-tougher-action-against-iran/3695060.html) In separate remarks to OIAC members, Democratic Congressman Eliot Engel said he wants to focus on helping one Iranian opposition group in particular MEK,

How much more do you need? audited accounts of CIA or what?

Idiot.

Explain this then if you think cheering is okay.

A Swiss man is on trial for ‘liking’ Facebook posts that accused an animal rights activist of racism and anti-Semitism. The prosecution has accused him of defamation in the landmark case.

The 45-year-old defendant from Zurich is facing charges after becoming involved in an online argument within the animal rights community – by merely ‘liking’ eight Facebook posts.

Those posts accused Erwin Kessler, the president of the animal protection association Vereins gegen Tierfabriken, of racism and anti-Semitism.

Kessler has now pressed charges against the ‘liker’, citing defamation, Swiss newspaper Tages Anzeiger reported on Monday.

The prosecution claims that by ‘liking’ the posts, the defendant spread their content by making them visible to a larger audience. It also claims that the 45-year-old acted with intent to harm without justifiable cause.

Either this support for a Ukraine type sponsored regime change coup is a head fake, or The Don just blotted his copy book big time.  I am not down with this.

The US and NATO have no business in Iran.  Pull your CIA weasels out!

Iran made noises about joining the Eastern Trade bloc including China and Russia.  This is the result.  Same medicine as was applied to Ukraine, Lybya, Iraq and Syria.  US hegemony and petrodollar supremacy cannot survive the defection of even the bit players.

The USD is going down.  Prepare.
