WASHINGTON – Amidst a new wave of protests in Iran, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday accused the Iranian government of “hypocrisy,” saying it must listen to the wishes of its demonstrators.

“What we see happening in Iran today is a testament to the courage of the Iranian people, and an indictment of the hypocrisy of the Iranian regime — a regime which over the last three weeks has constantly hailed what went on in Egypt,” Clinton told reporters.

“We wish the opposition and the brave people in the streets across cities in Iran the same opportunities that they saw their Egyptian counterparts seize.”

Iranian opposition protesters took part in a banned march to support the Egyptian and Tunisian uprisings that overthrew their governments. They reported Monday on a website that dozens were arrested.

“Let me, clearly and directly, support the aspirations of the people who are in the streets in Iran today,” Clinton said.

Unlike in Egypt, where now-resigned autocratic leader Hosni Mubarak was a friend to the US, American officials seemingly feel freer to denounce the regime and side firmly with the reform movement.

Widespread protests broke out in Iran in 2009, when many were killed, but the Iranian regime held power after a controversial election that fueled the belief that the government was illegitimate.

A witness told Reuters that Iranian security forces used tear gas to scatter and intimidate the demonstrators. The regime’s security apparatus has been forceful in cracking down on even peaceful dissent since the unsuccessful uprising of 2009.

Clinton called for a more “open” society in Iran.

“We think that there needs to be a commitment to open up the political system in Iran to hear the voices of the opposition and civil society,” she said.

    America needs to follow Egypt’s example. Let’s cast off Wall Street’s reign of financial terror just as the workers of Egypt are doing now. When the productive workers of society stop cooperating with their parasitical financial elite exploiters, freedom and liberty can break out nearly overnight–much to the dismay of petty tyrants like Mubarak and Obama.

    Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal print edition had this rather telling headline: “Protests move from Egypt to Iran.” As if this was the logical next step. And now we have this from H. Clinton. Anyone who listened to Condoleezza Rice during her tenure or read about the Bush war budgets knows that the State Department poured hundreds of millions of dollars into Iran to destabilize that government so I’m still wondering what role the CIA played in the recent mostly peaceful demonstrations in Egypt and these other democracy movements suddenly emerging simultaneously all over North Africa and the Middle East. Synchronicity or design?

    “”"Unlike in Egypt, where now-resigned autocratic leader Hosni Mubarak was a friend to the US, American officials seemingly feel freer to denounce the regime and side firmly with the reform movement.”"

    I think that says it all. They don’t care about freedom, they care about having a ‘friend’ they can rely on.
    The best way is the libertarian way. Support representative government, don’t try to kill them, trade and they will like you. It is as simple as not torturing the populace, selling them candy bars and not dropping bombs.

    Sure it might take 30 years, but the people of the middle east would love us if we supported that policy.

    Obama is not a tyrant like Mubarak. Mubarak controlled everything that went on in Egypt for 30 yrs and funneled billions into his personal account. If you think Obama can call shots with Goldman or JP Morgan you’re crazy. Look at how he’s holding BP’s feet to the fire in the Gulf. Not. Big business and banks own this country. That is why the people of this country are being shat upon with these budget proposals being kicked around. Forcing the President to step down here would not do the same as it did for Egypt.

    If we have learned anything from this whole Egyptian “freedom” episode (ultimately, a coup by the US-backed Egyptian army), it’s that NOTHING is in reality how it appears on the surface, and NOTHING that American officials and the MSM say is anything more than spin, a desperate attempt to garner some advantage from this uncertain situation.

    Oh, Hillary, if you hadn’t already succeeded in lying us into the Iraq War and tried to lie us into attacking Iran over some non-existent nuclear weapons program, you might have even a thread of credibility. I take that back, she’s threadbare.

    Hillary is going to regret all those wonderful quotes when the Saudi Arabian people start protesting on February 18th:

    Saudi Arabian Protests are scheduled for February 18

    “We wish the opposition and the brave people in the streets across cities in Saudi Arabia the same opportunities that they saw their Egyptian counterparts seize.”
    “Let me, clearly and directly, support the aspirations of the people who are in the streets in Saudi Arabia today,” Clinton said.
    Clinton called for a more “open” society in Saudi Arabia.

    Agree that America should be next on the list.

    Never on Earth have there been such massive wealth disparities, not even in ANCIENT Egypt. Where’s the money? Well, millions are currently being funneled into a destabilization campaign in Iran, for example, rather than toward the basic well being of people in the “homeland”. Peanuts! you say; well, fair enough, but 2.3 trillion missing from the Pentagon on 9/10 is a pretty penny, and could go a long way toward balancing the budget, if that’s the big concern.

    Anyway, Iran is not bombing or invading other countries, unlike, say, Israel. You do the math. If the US hadn’t overthrown Mossadegh and installed the Shah, taught his police the fine art of torture there wouldn’t be an “enemy” in the region to begin with. Ironically, the US has consistently funded radical Islamist groups as a bulwark against Arab secular nationalism, lest oil be nationalized. Karma’s a bitch.

    So far as I’m concerned the US is a such a monumental f’ck up it has no right to dictate what other nations should or shouldn’t do. In fact, Hillary — who is clearly a degenerate psycho — comes across as semi-comical in this piece. She should shut the f’ck up and try to get her own house in order.

    Well, on this point, I have to agree with Shillary, the republican. I hope Iran has a similar revolution to Egypt and Tunisia, and I REALLY hope Saudi Arabia does as well.

    Yep, BP should accept no blame or responsibility, good plan. Plus, what would Halliburton do with they’re new oil spill clean up company they acquired 2 weeks before their well head failed. That’s the arrogant American way to refuse foreign help. “We don’t need no help, we big and strong”. Remember Bush refused foreign aid during Katrina. Same thing..

    Hillary and her ilk didn’t expect a non violent uprising to hit Egypt so fast. We had “interests” there for us and Israel.

    Now that Americas attempts to undermine Iran haven’t worked so far, she is using Egypt as the pattern for takeover there…for U.S. and Israel.

    The admin wasn’t too happy about Egypt but they changed their tune when they realized the world was catching on. So now it’s on to Iran, the big prize.

    True, PBO has been a massive disappointment as he has surrendered the interests of the American People in favor of the Military/Industrial/WallSt thugs who have run this Nation since the time of St. Reagan.

    But it’s not just PBO. We in the heartland elect our respective “Conservatives”, “Moderates”, and “Progressives”, but virtually ALL of them elected sombitches go to DC to serve the Corporate GreedHeads. They pander to their respective bases to get elected; but they cast their vote for the lobbyist with the biggest bulge in his . . . wallet.

    Why did we have to open our mouth on this one? The only impact it will have on the Iranians is to justify a crack-down based on outside influences. Could it be that the administration is merely pandering to the right in an effort to look tough on Iran?

    While there is no doubt that the regime of Ahmadenijad is reprehensible and the feelings of many of the young protesters in Iran are genuine, you will forgive me for questioning the motives behind the monolithic media support for the overthrow of Iran’s government and the installation of Mir-Houssein “Butcher of Beirut” Mousavi.

    Soros, the CIA, Mossad and the new media destabilization of Iran

    Published on 06-23-2009

    Source: Corbett Report – James Corbett

    It’s the 2009 presidential election in Iran and opposition leader Mir-Houssein Mousavi declares victory hours before the polls close, insuring that any result to the contrary will be called into question. Western media goes into overdrive, fighting with each other to see who can offer the most hyperbolic denunciation of the vote and President Ahmadenijad’s apparent victory (BBC wins by publishing bald-faced lies about the supposed popular uprising which it is later forced to retract). On June 13th, 30000 “tweets” begin to flood Twitter with live updates from Iran, most written in English and provided by a handful of newly-registered users with identical profile photos. The Jerusalem Post writes a story about the Iran Twitter phenomenon a few hours after it starts (and who says Mossad isn’t staying up to date with new media?). Now, YouTube is providing a “Breaking News” link at the top of every page linking to the latest footage of the Iranian protests (all shot in high def, no less). Welcome to Destabilization 2.0, the latest version of a program that the western powers have been running for decades in order to overthrow foreign, democratically elected governments that don’t yield to the whims of western governments and multinational corporations.

    
    Ironically, Iran was also the birthplace of the original CIA program for destabilizing a foreign government. Think of it as Destabilization 1.0: It’s 1953 and democratically-elected Iraup as a saintly figure — he’s far from it. I just care about what IS.

    I also keep in touch with some Iranians OUTSIDE Tehran; it’s a whole different story there — Ahmadinejad is indeed loved and respected.

    nian leader Mohammed Mossadegh is following through on …his election promises to nationalize industry for the Iranian people, including the oil industry of Iran which was then controlled by the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. The CIA is sent into the country to bring an end to Mossadegh’s government. They begin a campaign of terror, staging bombings and attacks on Muslim targets in order to blame them on nationalist, secular Mossadegh. They foster and fund an anti-Mossadegh campaign amongst the radical Islamist elements in the country. Finally, they back the revolution that brings their favoured puppet, the Shah, into power. Within months, their mission had been accomplished: they had removed a democratically elected leader who threatened to build up an independent, secular Persian nation and replaced him with a repressive tyrant whose secret police would brutally suppress all opposition. The campaign was a success and the lead CIA agent wrote an after-action report describing the operation in glowing terms. The pattern was to be repeated time and time again in country after country (in Guatemala in 1954, in Afghanistan in the 1980s, in Serbia in the 1990s), but these operations leave the agency open to exposure. What was needed was a different plan, one where the western political and financial interests puppeteering the revolution would be more difficult to implicate in the overthrow.

    Enter Destabilization 1.1. This version of the destabilization program is less messy, offering plausible deniability for the western powers who are overthrowing a foreign government. It starts when the IMF moves in to offer a bribe to a tin…pot dictator in a third world country. He gets 10% in exchange for taking out an exorbitant loan for an infrastructure project that the country can’t afford. When the country inevitably defaults on the loan payments, the IMF begins to take over, imposing a restructuring program that eventually results in the full scale looting of the country’s resources for western business interests. This program, too, was run in country after country, from Jamaica to Myanmar, from Chile to Zimbabwe. The source code for this program was revealed in 2001, however, when former World Bank chief economist Joseph Stiglitz went public about the scam. More detail was added in 2004 by the publication of John Perkin’s Confessions of an Economic Hitman, which revealed the extent to which front companies and complicit corporations aided, abetted and facilitated the economic plundering and overthrow of foreign governments. Although still an effective technique for overthrowing foreign nations, the fact that this particular scam had been exposed meant that the architects of global geopolitics would have to find a new way to get rid of foreign, democratically elected governments.

    Destabilization 1.2 involves seemingly disinterested, democracy promoting NGOs with feelgood names like the Open Society Institute, Freedom House and the National Endowment for Democracy. They fund, train, support and mobilize opposition mo…vements in countries that have been targeted for destabilization, often during elections and usually organized around an identifiable color. These “color revolutions” sprang up in the past decade and have so far successfully destabilized the governments of the Ukraine, Lebanon, Georgia and Kyrgyzstan, among others. These revolutions bear the imprint of billionaire finance oligarch George Soros. The hidden hand of western powers behind these color revolutions has threatened their effectiveness in recent years, however, with an anti-Soros movement having arisen in Georgia and with the recent Moldovan “grape revolution” having come to naught (much to the chagrin of Soros-funded OSI’s Evgeny Morozov).

    
    Now we arrive at Destabilization 2.0, really not much more than a slight tweak of Destabilization 1.2. The only thing different is that now Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other social media are being employed to amplify the effect of (and t…he impression of) internal protests. Once again, Soros henchman Evgeny Morozov is extolling the virtues of the new Tehran Twitter revolution and the New York Times is writing journalistic hymns to the power of internet new media…when it serves western imperial interests. We are being asked to believe that this latest version of the very (very) old program of U.S. corporate imperialism is the real deal.

    Hasbara spam alert
    With Israel’s foreign ministry organising volunteers to flood news websites with pro-Israeli comments, Propaganda 2.0 is here

    February 14, 2011

    The hasbara brigade strikes again! You always hear about Israeli attempts at media manipulation. Everyone knows it’s going on but usually the process happens through cyber insurgents like those involved with Giyus (and its media monitoring software, Megaphone). Now, we know that the Israeli foreign ministry itself is orchestrating propaganda efforts designed to flood news websites with pro-Israel arguments and information.

    A reader of my blog has received the following email which documents both the efforts and the agency that originated them. The solicitation to become a pro-Israel “media volunteer” also includes a list of media links which the ministry would like addressed by pro-Israel comments:

    Dear friends,

    We hold the [sic] military supremacy, yet fail the battle over the international media. We need to buy time for the IDF to succeed, and the least we can do is spare some (additional) minutes on the net. The ministry of foreign affairs is putting great efforts in balancing the media, but we all know it’s a battle of numbers. The more we post, blog, talkback, vote – the more likely we gain positive sentiment.

    I was asked by the ministry of foreign affairs to arrange a network of volunteers, who are willing to contribute to this effort. If you’re up to it you will receive a daily messages & media package as well as targets.

    If you wish to participate, please respond to this email.

    Hillary seems hell bent on roping Iran into the throes of the peoples revolution in Egypt without any evidence to possibly equate the two. For one thing, the Egyptian revolution, as was the Iranian revolution of 1979, was truly a “peoples” revolution. This means there was no external influence and a minimum of internal vested interest in either case. The people of Egypt in 2011 as with the people of Iran in 1979 rose up, en-mass, to overthrow a tyrannical oppressive regime headed by a megalomaniac despot. Nobody prodded them and nobody helped them. Both were spontaneous reactions to an “enough is enough” situation.

    The Iran of 2011 has no semblance of similarity with the Egypt of 2011. The main difference between the two, based on the above logic, is the fact that for the past 30 years the Americans have been budgeted and therefor expending, millions of dollars in a vain attempt to get the Iranian people to do what the Egyptians did on there own volition – for free. Surely the amount of money the American have spent over the years has made it possible for them to produce “rent a crowd ‘protestors’” in response to selected stimuli – the 2009 elections and the 2011 Egyptian peoples revolution. Not to mention that during the same period the Americans spent about $45 Billion to keep the Egyptian despot on seat.

    The only similarity between the two events is that in both cases, the Americans seem to have wasted their tax payers money and eventually the American population is going to take note of such misguided foreign policy initiatives.

    The Iranian people had their revolution in 1979. It, like the Egyptian revolution in 2011 was also a people movement as I mentioned above. It’s just that the American media, who happens to be controlled by “you know who” don’t want you to hear about any of the positive things going on in Iran. Let me give you a little hint. The Reaganites wanted to SELL american nuclear technology to the Shah (who would have been alloowed to BUY it). The Iranian nuclear program of todays Iran is being achieved by the Iranians.

    Hillary is a loud mouth know nothing that has always backed dictators with US taxpayer money. She is also attached at the hip to Zionist hardliners like those that have put out the movie “Iranium”. Perhaps if the US didn’t use militarism and war for foreign policy for the last 60 years, the middle east would be a more open group of societies. Instead, she continues to back oligarchs and ideologies that have resulted in support of dictators, just as the US did in 1954 eliminating Mosseddegh and putting the Shaw as US puppet dictator and instituting the SAVAK for the oil companies. Just how often has the US “intervened” in the middle east the last 60 years, compared to Iran?

The point is, getting rid of him will change nothing. Getting rid of Mubarak changes everything for Egypt. We need to clean out everything. Saying it is easy. We’ve got 50 states that need to be purged.

    well, overthrow/disarm/demilitarize and put reins on corporations. the
    praetorian guard just allows caesar and senate to pose and the money
    behind the guns allows the praetorian guard.

    an easy solution to the utter corruption of public office is this…
    make it law that when any gain office they must divest for the term of
    their office all moneys, asssets and live at the exact level of their
    constituency. this will do two great things… end this taxation without
    representation and have officials actually doing what is in our
    interest. secondly, the rich will run like rabbits away from office!

    Until there’s a DRAFT reinstated and EVERY American family stands to lose a loved one in the Iraq and Afghanistan bullshit, as well as lose their jobs to foreign low paid laborers, no one will stand up with the rest of us and say enough of this bullshit already. The American believe themselves to be Oh So Civil they would never rise up to fight off this fucked up government of asshole politicians and greedy corporate motherfuckers!
