ahmadinejad probably just won a rigged election

86 posts in this topic

roughly 68% vote for ahmadinejad, after masavi was leading in the polls

tehran is essentially under martial law

largest victory since the iranian revolution

even more embarrassing for democracy than america buying the recent Lebanese election

The youth should take the lead from the current leadership and revolt, as they did, 30 years ago.

If he wins, how can it not have been rigged, considering the overwhelming demographic of Iran?

Its not as simple as it seems. They had a couple of Iranian journalist on NPR yesterday, and apparently Ahmadinejad has a lot of support among the poor and rural areas in Iran. Its not a guarantee that its fixed, although the possibility exist.

And if there is a Civil War, it will not last long. The religous leaders will see to that.

Maybe. Or perhaps they get so involved in internal affairs that Iraq becomes less important to them.

    • Yeah.... a single person of a religion encompassing over a billion people on the planet.  I don't see social media blowing up with the Muslim community in the western part of the world denouncing these attacks.  When Dillon Roof happened, there were a lot of Christians that denounced him immediately and repeatedly.  The point is that effective change for this extremism must come from within those communities.   The tide is turning, but people within those communities still feel fear of reprisal from within their culture for saying anything that could be construed as aligning with anti-Muslim stances.  Those dangers shouldn't be summarily dismissed for those that are brave enough to take this stand. I also stated that the media needs to do their part in accurately portraying these denouncements.  What I see instead is the media propping up ridiculous caricatures of people rather than your average person.
