I don’t know what to say about this video. It’s pretty much beyond words. First of all, I don’t speak Farsi/Persian, so I really have no idea whether the English translation of the spoken words is even remotely accurate.
So I’ll set aside the poem.
But listen to the city. The humanity. The incredible vibe.
What does it sound like when a Revolution is NOT happening?
What do Ithink is going on? I think Bush and Cheney and whoever else is actually running the show in the Bush “administration” want to kill two birds, and perhaps thousands or millions of Iranians, with one stone.
The birds? An American Presidential election and the military entrenchment of a permanent Corporate fossil fuel dictatorship in control of Middle East natural resources and American military might.
The stone? A war – or at the very least a war fever in the American Corporate Media – in Iran, just in time for the American elections this fall.
