Since the Iranian election on June 12th hundreds of thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets to protest the results of the election, widely believed to have been rigged to ensure victory for the incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. And there is good reason to believe that the hard-line and reactionary President was not the victor – not only were there reports of missing ballots and coerced voting on behalf of the Ahmadinejad campaign but Iran also has a strong history of rigged elections. It’s all part and parcel of the single-Party dictatorship in Iran: any show of democracy is a façade.

August 2008 saw at least two United States Aircraft Carriers set sail to the Persian Gulf, along with an Amphibious Assault Ship, a British Royal Naval Carrier and a French Nuclear Submarine. This was the latest in what appears almost certain preparations for war against Iran; from Israeli ‘test strikes’ to Operation Brimstone (when twelve UK, US and French naval ships took to the Atlantic Ocean in preparation for a possible confrontation with Iran) there can be little doubt that the American ruling class and their allies are determined to decimate the ‘rouge state’of Iran.
