Why the mullahs have their fingers crossed, hoping to be able to keep a lid on all this for another six weeks. From the SMCCDI, with thanks to Ali Dashti:
Deadly clashes rocked, today, Iran’s main southern port of Bandar-Abbas located by the Hormoz Strait on the Persian Gulf.
Elite commandos of the Pasdaran Corp. entered in action in order to smash a popular protest initiated following the news of murders of three local fishermen by members of the regime’s security forces. Rumors had stated that the fishermen were killed as they had refused to bribe the regime’s agents.
Angry residents attacked several public buildings and the regime forces vehicles with pieces of stones and incendiary devices after that the militiamen started to shoot on the crowd. Several deaths and injured have been reported.
The situation is very tense and the accesses to the city-port and the port’s facilities are under heavy military watch.
Bandar Abbas is the main commercial entry to Iran and its paralysis will plunge the country in an unprecedented chaos from which the Islamic regime won’t survive.
Why six weeks? Consider this detail from Andrew2’s report from Munich:
The Democratic representative, John McQueen, took the podium with the trademark shout-out from the movie Good morning Vietnam–“Good morning Munich!” He immediately went to work highlighting the Democratic view of the current administration. “The preservation of civil rights, dialogue with North Korea and Iran, and health care are all important to John Kerry“.
