The Iranian (Green) Movement Has No Leader

The Iranian (Green) Movement Has No Leader
by NOT_AK69

“It doesn't take a majority to make a rebellion; it takes only a few determined leaders and a sound cause.” – Henry Louis Mencken

“Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.” – Vince Lombardi


Again and again the protagonist pundits pontificate on the leaderless movement for Iranian freedom. Why? When, we have millions of leaders among us. Why do they not see them? They are the ones at the forefront of this revolution. How do we know they exist? We know of their existence as fact by witnessing the mere occurrences of the past few turbulent months. Who do you think organizes, contributes time or wealth, raises funds and awareness or lends their voice to this cause? Who do you think has been filling the wretched jails of Iran? Who do you think marches in the streets of Iran with life and death on the line?

Leadership is an active process, not an appointment. We need not anoint the likes of Mousavi or any other of his ilk as leader of a movement for freedom. When we have millions of brave individuals that are giving their lives for all of us Iranians and leading the way by example and personal sacrifice.

These are the leaders among us that seek no glory. They will naturally rise to the forefront of our collective consciousness when the time has come; when Iran is free, and hindsight clear, all will see the accomplishments of these future leaders of Iran.

Just stop it, will ya???

I mean, you seem like a kind and gentle soul, and sweet and harmless, but really stop the extreme admiration of the royalty. 

Believe in yourself and believe in humility.  That video you posted is ridiculous and so is the idea of kings and queens, etc.

They are not sacred.

Can you open your mind a little bit (which seems like you are a reasonable man) and think of other possibilities other than these people???  Just think about it sometime when you have time.

ok?  :)

What else can you expect from a culture that doesn't comprehend the concept of "leadership"?

Never in in the 2,500 years of history that we brag about (yet have shit to show for it) have we really had a leader.

Rulers? Yes. There have been plenty. Leaders? Nope.

REZA's CALL: An Iranian Solidarnosc... by DK  





Worse than now you say???

 "What if your movement ends us in a worse place than we started?"


Lets examine that.

A "new" regime instead of the current murdering thugs will be worse how? Instead of beating the people with clubs, they'd use RPG's to "disperse" the crowds? Instead of snipers on the roof shooting at unarmed people, they would use Gatlin guns as a wholesale weapon?? Instead of raping them in jails, they would rape them right in the streets? Instead of the corrupt Sepah as the main engine to drain the country's resources, they would use multiple sources to steal form the peopel?

Yeah, that would be worse..........Are you people for real?

No, I am not an agent of Israel, but Agent of patriotism and against your bullshit. You, on other hand, are agents of the murderous anti nationlist theocarcy and on their payroll.

Enough is Enough. Pack you god damn crap and get the hell out of my motherland......before it's too late...........for you.
