Insurgency, Iranian Style

Reports indicate that second bomb blasted near the site of previous explosion in SE of Iran. Moreover anti-regime insurgents fought with the security forces in south-eastern Iranian city of Zahedan right after this blast.

The anti-regime Sunni group, Jundallah, announced in a statement that they are resorting to violence because their previous efforts to achieve their political goals were met with fierce and brutal actions of the Islamic regime of Iran and that's why they have been fighting the regime thru violent methods. Persian language web sites also report that today explosion was result of firing an RPG at a police station.

However this is solely my theory about the recent explosions in SE of Iran. And I think the first explosion was done by the Sunni group called Jundallah but the second shooting and bombing was done by the regime in order to scare people. The Sunni Jundallah insurgency group hasn't taken responsibility for it and I assume it could be done by Iranian regime to send a message to the people about any possible security vacuum that may follow if they are seriously threatened. The Iranian regime does every thing possible to stay in power and this can be their one of tactics. This is important because ethnic groups as well as other people have no rights under the Islamic regime of Iran. Any possible uprising of ethnic minorities in Iran, in massive numbers, can definitely help put an end to the rule of the clerics in Iran once and forever. Therefore regime is trying to discredit these people and scare people to gain popular support. Moreover they are releasing photos of so-called American munition in hands of Iranian insurgents and I believe this is a counter-attack against the American accusing the mullahs for the mess in Iraq.

I'll keep an an eye on the activities of the evil ruling clerics of Iran and will keep you posted.

There is a lot to be hopeful for in Iran.

The Bush doctrine is slowly getting traction. The Mullahs are pinned in by Iraq and Afghanistan; not that these two countries are stabilized yet but the threat that they will be is causing splits among the terrified Mullahs. Remember what a pleasant surprise the fall of the Berlin Wall was … we could be seeing one in Iran this year.

The surge in Iraq is working much to the chagrin of utopians like Murtha.

The surge of Obama is not working. Paradoxically his campaign built on “hope” does not give hope to the Iranians who want to topple the mullahs and thereby make the world safer.

But the surge in Iraq is giving hope to those revolutionary forces in Iran that we’ve all hoped would mount a serious coup d'état.

Even in France we’re seeing the decline of the left with hard liner Nicolas Sarkozy’s campaign gaining traction against the leftist pacifists that have held Europe over the last decade of crisis in the ME.

So in spite of Obama or maybe because of his failure to resonate with the adults, people can start to see through these utopians, there is “hope”

From another source (with a little editorial rhetoric):

"But look what's been happening in the last couple of weeks: revolts and insurrections breaking out all over Iran, specifically targeting the regime's most brutal forces - the Pasdaran Revolutionary Guards and Basij gangs of government thugs.

The revolt of Sunni Baluchi tribesmen in southeast Iran is growing. This week (2/14) Jundallah rebels killed 11 Pasdaran soldiers and wounded many more. The regime is increasingly incapable of suppressing Baluchi secessionism and rebellion.

My friends among the Ahwazi Arabs in Iran's oil region of Khuzestan tell me their program of sabotage is expanding. "The American naval forces right off our coast has given our people much high morale," one of them told me.

Best news of all, however, is the massive tribal rebellion underway in central Iran. The Ghashghai, Bakhtiari, and Lor tribes - together comprising over three million folks - have begun liberating their villages and towns from regime control.

On January 31st in the town of Semirom alone over a dozen Basijis and Pasdaran were killed. Fighting has broken out all over Isfahan and Yassooj provinces, and is spreading into Fars, with thousands of tribesmen attacking government forces.

You can expect the tribal rebels to soon link up with the Ahwazis - and for armed resistance to then emerge within the millions of Iranian Kurds.

Couple all of this with the success of Bush's surge already happening in Iraq. The clearest indicator is Mookie - Moqtada al-Sadr, leader of the major Shiite terrorist militia - has fled to Iran with his family and all his top commanders. They're all hiding out in Tehran scared that George is going to drop a JDAM on their turbans."

Bombs going off inside Iran - it couldn't happen to a more deserving group of people!

If the Iranian people keep supporting Ahmadinejad and the crazy clerics - they'll have a lot more and a lot bigger bombs to look forward to.

Why Iranians want their kids to be 'martyrs' more than seeing them grow up is a strange choice that hasn't done any good for any other group of people - it's just unfortunate that they want to force civilized people to martyr Iranians, why can't they just commit suicide and go see Allah today?

Iranian people do not support those madmen.

OK, then why don't they get rid of them?

I was looking forward to an answer. At least one of some kind, even if it does not satisfy. 'sigh'
