Iran: The Plight of the Protesters

TPM has up a Reuters story on allegations being made by Mousavi and Karoubi (second and fourth, respectively, in the recent, tainted Presidential election) that protesters have been raped, tortured and murdered.

So not only should the international community condemn the mass arrests and kagaroo courts, but we also need to demand a legitimate investigation into these allegations.

    In the matter of torture : how much credibility do you give the citizens of a nation operating a known and advertised series of kidnap and torture with any process whatsoever ?
    The Bible-Thumpers would quote you a parable about taking the plank from your own eye before worrying about the mote in another’s – and they’d be right.
    That’s without noting constant b.s. in reporting on Iran. At least I check in with Press TV once in a while.
    Two sides to every story ? Steph’s Blog and Signs of the Times both are noted false reporting about Iran : a Twitter Revolution from where the common people have no computers.
    The latest is a ban on Iranian gas imports. Do you have any idea how many Iraqi children were victims of policies replicated in Iran ? Killing a modern state’s infrastructure includes water treatment, sewage, hospitals and more being affected by lack of power.

    Iran is being attacked by the U.S. Do not doubt for a moment that spin and disinformation to the public have not been and are part of that package.

    Sorry about the doubled comment. Your stance made me think about the historical astuteness of the main complainant : so I had a quick look.
