Obama fools no one when he cops out to election fraud in the Afghan election. It is for this reason, Obama fallaciously explains, that he cannot commit to an Afghan surge, or better weapons, or even functioning guns.
Obama backs Ahmadinejad, a slaughterer who stole the Iran election, who is systemically executing anyone who dared to speak of it. The mullahcracy is crushing the Iranian freedom movement with incomprehensible violence. This is what Obama stands with. This is what America has reduced herself to. It is inconceivable to free men that we have degraded ourselves to such a low state in so short a period of time.
Iran has sentenced to death three more protesters who were arrested after the country's disputed presidential election in June. The verdicts came despite a widespread international protest over the death penalty given last week to a man identified as Mohammad Reza Ali Zamani, a member of a group seeking to reinstate the country's monarchy.
The sentences were said to be for involvement in the countrywide protests that followed Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election as president in polls many Iranians said were rigged. The authorities have rejected the charges and portrayed the protests as a foreign-backed bid to undermine the Islamic republic.
Announcing the latest sentences through the ISNA news agency, Zahed Bashiri Rad, a spokesman for the justice ministry, said: "Three people who were accused [for their role] in the post-election incidents have been sentenced to death."
The identities of the three protesters were not revealed. Instead Bashiri Rad supplied only the initials of those condemned. "MZ and AP were convicted for ties with the Kingdom Assembly of Iran" -- an organisation that seeks to bring back the Shah -- while NA was convicted for ties with the People's Mujahideen, an exiled opposition group. It is unclear whether Zamani is the "MZ" mentioned by ISNA.
The four prisoners who have been sentenced in the last week are among more than 4,000 Iranians arrested for their part in the protests that followed the disputed election, many of whom have been accused of trying to overthrow the Islamic republic. Most of those detained have been released, but about 200 remain behind bars and around 110 have so far been put on trial.
Clearly he looks down his nose contemptuously on the American people. We are to believe that Karzai is the evil guy, but Ahmadinejad is a Muslim we can work with?
