Iran Protests - American Sponsored?

Scribe: N. Tru Bass



An unusual anti-government protest took the news board for Friday. The White House press secretary Sanders warned the Iranian government that the world is watching. The warning seemed to be making an attempt to quash the governments desire to stop the protest. Later Trump dittoed the sentiment on social media saying, "Many reports of peaceful protests by Iranian citizens fed up with regime's corruption & its squandering of the nation's wealth to fund terrorism abroad.

"Iranian govt should respect their people's rights, including right to express themselves. The world is watching!"

300 people protested in a western Iranian city of Kermanshah on Friday. Water canon’s and tear gas is being used to disperse demonstrators. The US department of State described the anti-governement protest as peaceful.

The State department issued this message, "The United States strongly condemns the arrest of peaceful protesters. We urge all nations to publicly support the Iranian people and their demands for basic rights and an end to corruption."

The push back is caused by the high cost of living.

In 2009, then president Barack Obama when being prompted to interfere with an Iranian election he said that it would be counterproductive and refused.

Due to the request made 8 years ago, many people believe the US may be involved with staging protests and are translucently attempting to urge the Iranian government to allow them to persist. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, believed any protests surrounding the election is American led.

Are the latest protest American led?

We may look at Hilary Clinton's leaked mail to see the major role USA and France played in Iran's regime change. It is not far fetched to believe that USA is supporting in every movement that goes against political enemies of the states.
