Iran: Arbitrary arrest / Fear of torture

At least 13 journalists are among scores of people arrested in their homes or offices since the disputed Iranian Presidential election on 12 June. The whereabouts of most are unknown, although those detained in Tehran are likely to be held in Evin Prison. All are feared to be at risk of torture or other ill-treatment.

The US’s meddling in most countries of the world, is the PRIMARY cause of global Human Rights abuses!

Here’s how it works using the recent Iranian example…

When the Iranian election was approaching, the US moved in and funded the strongest opposition with promises to support and even make them the new government.

The funding included a strategy to immediately raise an outcry of a “rigged election” and thugs to start demonstrations and riots to get the momentum going. This in turn angers the Iranian government who by now, have no other option but to crack down on the American-backed trouble makers with a show of force.

This show of force now gives the American propaganda machine the perfect “excuse” to criticize and “expose” the “cruel and undemocratic” Iranian government by spreading the news via YouTube videos and other mass media.

You are unable to see this vicious cycle being played on many countries of the world by the wealthy and criminal US, because of your naivety and ignorance of contemporary world affairs.


The growing cycle of ending autocratic regimes is invisible to you and you call me naive and ignorant?

the more you type the more you're starting to sound like a time capsule. :roll:

So tell me oh wise one. DO these people ever deserve democracy or should they be guarded from it for perpetuity in case it has something to do with the Americans?

Answer it.

Clinton: US Supported Iran Protesters ‘Behind the Scenes’

“In an interview today on CNN’s GPS with Fareed Zakaria, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that while the US didn’t want to come out too publicly in favor of the protesters in the wake of Iran’s disputed June elections, the State Department was “doing a lot” behind the scenes to support the opposition.”

I wonder when the US will understand that supporting backward and blood drenched regimes for some immediate benefit actually causes incredible amount of harm to innocent people around the world and even to them in the long run?

You tell me Miltiades?

''It is the first time Tehran has recognised the scale of its crackdown on protesters, although it has not said how many are behind bars nor offered a death toll for several months.''

Tens of thousands were arrested, "tens of thousands were released".
