Comment Re:From Tatsuma. (Score 1) 263

I have to say that most of this is bullshit. I'm not sure who 'Tatsuma' is, but just the first part of his post is full of crap.

1. Lebanese Hizbullah in Iran in large numbers? Why are they required. If the leadership needs to mobilise, the Baseej are enough. Also, the post is full of the usual anti-Arab racism that most non-religious, usually non-Iranian, Persians possess. Iranians won't hurt fellow Iranians, but Arabs will? What about the Shah and his SAVAK? Were they imported Arabs as well?

2. The Rahbar using the Friday prayers to collect and arrest opposition figures: So, let me get this, the Leader, with all the powers at this disposal and with full knowledge of the location of Musavi etc. still needs to bring them to himself because he can't arrest them otherwise? Bullshit.

I basically stopped reading after this point. The post /seems/ insightful, but only to those un-aware of the realities of Iran. Tatsuma is most probably an expat Iranian whose family fled after the revolution or a clueless iPod Iranian, mostly uninformed and spewing wild rumours and speculation. You'll get more impartial and informed opinions from Fox News.
