Protests and violence have erupted in Iran, after what appears to be
election fraud in Iran. The controversy involves the disputed election between
Hossein Mousavi, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Ahmadinejad supposedly beat the opposition by a margin of 52 percent
to 46 percent. Mousavi, supposedly received 34 percent of the vote, and
Mehdi Karroubi received 17 percent of the vote.

There have been countless reports of beatings, shootings, and murders, by security
police in Iran attempting to suppress the political uprising against the Ahmadinejad
regime. There were hundreds of thousands of protesters in Tehran on June 15, 2009, and
other cities.

A group of Basij Militia soldiers started opening fire on the crowd in Tehran, and
at least one protester was killed in Azadi Square, and several others were wounded. Amnesty International has reported about 8 deaths occurred in Iraq protests on Monday, and many more were wounded. reported that 7 protesters were killed after attacking government soldiers
near Azadi Square on Monday. Since foreign media has been kicked out of Tehran, it is difficult to get firm death toll counts.

One witness on described his beating by Ahmadinejad's thugs: “He was surrounded and pleading for them to stop but six men with clubs, batons and metal rods kept battering a young Iranian man with ruthless force. The swing that keeps replaying in my head was the black baton that smashed the man in the skull behind his left ear.”

The election rigging was pervasive and obtrusive by the Ahmadinejad regime. There
were ballot shortages in Mousavi voting districts, and the power was purposely cut
at many Mousavi rallies.

The TimesOnline reported that: “Mr Ahmadinejad had men in key positions to rig the vote and enforce the result. Sadeq Mahsouli, the Interior Minister, and Kamran Daneshjoo, the election commission chief, are his cronies and appointees.”

The limited recount that the Iranian government is undertaking, is really just another public relations exercise designed to keep the Ahmadinejad regime, and Khamenei
in power.

More protests and violence are likely to occur in Iran, as Mousavi supporters begin
to realize that they have been sold out by the Ahmadinejad regime.
