Iranian executions unacceptable
Two activists 'executed in Iran'
Iran hanged two men convicted in the wake of the unrest that erupted after last year's disputed election, as a top opposition figure predicted President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would be ousted before the end of his term. The United States strongly condemned the hanging, calling the executions a "low point" in Tehran's crackdown on dissent.
Beyond the fact Ahmadinejad probably won the last election, beyond the fact a hardliner like Ahmadinejad wouldn't have been elected if the bloody American's hadn't invaded countries on either side of Iran, beyond the fact that developing a nuke in Iran's case is probably the best genuine self defense option available and even beyond my hope that the recent friction created by those who wish to modernize Iran away from the hardliners is a cultural necessity and positive step towards Iranians defining their own modernity - beyond all that, the brutal crack down on dissidents and the decision to hang two leaders who were involved in organizing legitimate protest is an unacceptable abuse of power.
Let's hope the hardliners days are numbered and the people of Iran can modernize beyond the stunted yoke of theocracy MINUS the external meddling of America and Israel.
