    Green Brief #77

    By Codeman177 – http:/twitter.com/codeman177

    Since Niteowl started helping Enduring America and focusing on other issues and Events, I have asked if I could begin publishing the Green Brief so that everyone on wwp would once again have a summary of the day’s news from Iran. I like Niteowl have gotten all of my information from reliable tweets and no information I could not confirm has been included in this brief. This one is rather short because it is my first one the rest will be longer.

    welcome

    Welcome codeman, and thank you for your efforts!

    It is a big deal you are up to, aren't you?
    NiteOwl's sources mostly turned out to be highly reliable and his work on the Green Brief additionally was based on his knowledge of the region and the Persian language. And I understood he changed the focus of his work because it really exhausted him to do the GB day by day.

    That said, you have to be prepared to discuss the contents of your GB (as might occur for the news of the jet said to be ready to take off, which was discussed on other online places and in the end was regarded as being rumor, not fact).

    I guess you considered all this yourself and choose to start your contribution anyhow. This has my deepest respect!

    Thanks for taking the helm. It's very important to keep the Iranians in focus. The more that we average citizens support them with the internet the more the world will learn the true face of this brutal regime and thus pressure world leaders to act accordingly.

    Sorry guys and gals, can't help commenting on these.

    Of course this was the perfect time for the government to release the body. First of all, pro government demos had been arranged, and the green movement had specific instructions to stay off the streets. A perfect oportunity for a quiet burial. - But the burial is only one of a series of mourning ceremonies.

    The pro government demos where organized by the government, and the participants where basically forced to join. "you get the day off, but if you don't attend the rally, then you're against the government". - A quite normal procedure that has been used since the days of Khomenei.

    Oh, so the police know it's a terrorist group ... using an unmarked car, with two occupants. The passenger taking ONE aimed shot and then speeding away.

    I'm honestly not sure who is to blame, the government or a "terror group" or who knows. But there is plenty of evidence and it's being investigated by people outside of the police and government.

    -----------

    In other news, not all that is officially annunced is true, even if it gets accepted by the general population and the international community. But it's not for me to divulge such information yet. When the time is right, or it's all over (The government is going down, you know.), then it will be easier to see the big picture for everyone.

    People have spoken

    I do not think that there are any doubts about the failure in any scenario designed by The REGIM of Terror, thanks to the brave people documenting the inhuman actions of the illegimate government who has proven by its action that they are ready shed blood to satisfy their thirst for power which enriches them by the cost of the blood to continue their short miserable life, forcefully gathering public convincing themselves to be llegimate celebrating it juicy fooling themselves being blind of the fact people do not want them just because they do not want and it is their vote to be fully respected no matter how justified. The people have spoken and the limit of acting or not acting towards improvisation by Regime of terror lays on the will of the people. The Regime of terror should consider the facts once they break this limit.

    Well said Hamid, organized regime spectacles have laways been a joke, they are only fooling themselves.
    For every one who is injured or killed there are thousands behind them. I hear that more are joining by the day. If the presure stays high the basij and police will lose heart at bringing this violence to their own people. They will have to turn and defend Persians from the imported killers of the hezbollah.
