Explosions in Iran.

A series of bombs went off in Iran a few hours ago. Its not clear who's responsible or what's the motive for this, but already the propaganda by Iran's militant allies has begun:

Lebanon's al-Manar television, run by the pro-Iranian Hizb Allah group, reported earlier that the bombs had been intended to kill Ahmadinejad. Its Tehran correspondent said the president had called off his trip after a security tip-off.


Which I believe is 100 per cent Bullsh*t!!! My gut feeling is telling me that this is some kind of Iranian version of the Reichstag Fire. Where the fanatics have carried out action in order to scare the population, marginalize the political opposition and exercise supreme power over its citizens. Right now the biggest opposition to Ahmadinejad is the pro-reform movement carried out by the students. And I have no doubt, should my gut instinct be confirmed, he will immediately crack down on their organization. The student movement has long been a ticking time bomb, and the hardliners have always tried to find ways to tame it or even reverse it.

So far the guys over at RegimeChangeIran haven't commented on this yet, but I'm sure they will as the storey develops. I'd really like to monitor this situation and possibly live-blog the developments, but right now I'm at work. However, be sure to check out their website for details.

I'd go with the Reichstag simulation too, having read "Reading Lolita in Tehran," she speaks of their repeated use of that method of internal terror.

BTW, congrats on the election results!
