Islamic Iran’s state-own media was busy long time before election but let’s look at one of their recent attempts to associate protests against fraudulent election result with foreigner agencies, particularly CIA.
In above video, Islamic Iran compares Iranian protests with the Venezuelan coup attempt of 2002. Any impartial observer would know that it is ridiculous to compare these two events, for following reasons:
- Coup in Venezuela was done by military that led to pro-Chavoz uprising.
- In Iran pro-Ahmadinejad armed forces brutally suppressed anti-Ahmadinejad uprising which were protesting for their votes, or it is better to say anti-fraud-election protests.
- Also Carmona was a pro-US government but Mousavi is not pro-US, he is moderate but he is not pro-American. In fact, if he was pro-US, he couldn’t stand any chance to get approval of Guardian Council for presidential candidacy at the first place. The Guardian Council has barred anyone that they suspect that would be a threat to Islamic revolution.
By comparing death of the women in Venezuela and in Iran, PressTV pushing lies to the extreme, I am just fed up that they are airing false information about people who got shot in Venezuela and Iran. There are established facts that people who got shot in Venezuela, specially the woman in the footage at 2:27, wiki states:
There is no consensus as to who was responsible for the deaths on April 11, 2002, and this remains one of the most controversial issues in Venezuelan politics today. The opposition version of events puts the blame on Chávez, or at least on his supporters. Several private television channels in Venezuela showed footage (following photo) of people using handguns to shoot from the pro-Chávez counter-march being held on Puente Llaguno, an overpass that crosses one of central Caracas's busiest avenues; it is unclear who they are shooting at but the commentary and juxtaposition with separate video of the dead made for a clear story. These shooters were four pro-Chávez political activists identified as Rafael Cabrices, Richard Peñalver, Henry Atencio, and Nicolás Rivera. They were captured by the police and jailed for one year as they awaited trial, but charges were dropped before the trial began. Rafael Cabrices died from a heart attack three years later, August 30, 2005.
In case of Neda Agha Soltan young Iranian lady, with commentary and juxtaposition of two separate videos of the dead we can see that armed forces from up the street shot at the direction that Neda and her music teacher were walking down the street:
Also in “Who killed Neda?” we have interview of the doctor who was right in the scene. If you didn’t watch the footage of Neda’s last moment, click here.
I asked following questions from Islamic regime’s propagandists but still none of them come up with an answer. These questions say it all:
Why only protesters got shot? Why most of them got shot in head, neck and chest? If people (or as state-own media puts it rioters!) had gun, why they didn’t shoot any Basij militia? Why didn’t they defend themselves in front of Basij militia snipers? Why didn’t they shoot riot police? Video footages speak loud and clear that armed forces are the one who shoot at people.
Press TV stop lying!
