These from our friends in Iran. The sanctions are having an effect.
Tehran, August 10, 2010. Despite the economical pressures imposed on the clerical regime in all aspects and every body can see that but regime and especially Ahmadinejad is trying to deny it.
In his speeches this week Ahmadinejad said that the sanctions have helped in uprooting the dominance of ‘dollar’ over global markets while it is obvious that the sanctions are gradually helping in uprooting the mullahs in Iran.
Tehran, August 10, 2010. The clerical regime has two options for representing its gas, either by pipe lines or by selling liquefied gas. Regime’s strategy from the beginning was to construct gas transfer pipe lines to Asia through Pakistan and India or to Europe through Turkey or Republic of Azerbaijan. But US was opposed to the plan and it was not progressive. As the result regime tried the second way, meaning production of liquefied natural gas. But on Monday August 9 regime’s Oil Ministry announced that the production of liquefied natural gas has stopped. This is the result of oil and gas sanctions. Many of the great oil enterprises enjoying the facilities for transporting liquefied gas have announced that they will not cooperate with regime any more. In addition to the investment and technology that regime needs a market exporting the gas. Japan is one of the greatest consumers of liquefied gas and the clerical regime has had the greatest hope in exporting its product to that country. But about two weeks ago Japan announced that it will join the harshest sanctions against the clerical dictatorship. In that way the clerical regime has lost its market too.
Tehran, August 11, 2010. – Brazil signed the sanctions issued by UN against the clerical dictatorship. – Turkey’s export of gasoline to the clerical dictatorship was reduced 73% on July. – Toyota Company announced that aligning with the international sanctions against regime’s nuclear programs it has suspended the exports of its cars to Iran. In its statement the company has said that ‘having in mind the international atmosphere’ it has stopped shipping its products to the clerical regime since June.
Tehran, August 10, 2010. Being under the pressure of the international sanctions the clerical dictatorship is out of breath but tries to show that it doesn’t care but its nervous reactions and it threats towards those that impose sanctions speak enough. Mohammad Reza Rahimi, Ahmadinejad’s deputy told Fars news agency affiliated with IRGC: “in our point of view Dollar and Euro are dirty currencies and we will not sell our oil by that…The sanctions will not stop our nuclear program it will just help us to reach technical independence in different industries…”. He attacked Korea and said: “they must be slapped”. He also called Australians “a bunch of ranchers”.
Tehran, August 10, 2010. Nahavandian the head of regime’s trade room called the international sanctions as ‘battle field’ and worriedly said: “we cannot be naive; we must take it serious as a military war. In a session with the subject of sanctions he said that not paying attention to sanctions is like not paying attention to the enemy and added: “the pressure of sanctions …will eventually lead to a rise in prices and unemployment…it is not logical to provoke them for more sanctions. This will stop our progress and will keep the future generation as retarded”.
Rule by MASS Executions.
Tehran, August 10, 2010. Sadegh Larijani the head of regime’s Judiciary, in a confidential letter to Ali Khamenei asked for permission for the execution of 1120 prisoners (Emphasis mine.). The reports received say that in his letter Larijani has said that these decrees have been approved by the Supreme Court and the Judiciary is waiting for Khamenei’s permission to execute them. In another event in the report of the head of Prisons Organization addressing Larijani the number of prisoners is 6 times the capacity of the prisons.
Or one at a time.
Tehran August 10, 2010. An informed source said that a death sentence has been issued for Farah Vazehan who was arrested after Ashura.
