Irã: A Quarta-Feira/Quinta-Feira

Pin It

Para começar bem, uma entrevista com Embaixador Iraniano nos EUA (supostamente), em entrevista à CNN. Isso mesmo, segundo a figura, quem matou Neda foi a CIA.

BLITZER (Âncora da CNN): Are you seriously accusing the CIA of killing Nada?

GHADIRI (through translator): We say that the bullet that was found in her head was not a bullet that you could find in Iran. These are the bullets that the CIA and terrorist groups use. Of course they warned that there would be a bloodshed in these demonstrations and then they could attribute that to the Islamic republic. This is part of a common act of CIA in various countries.

BLITZER: Do you really believe that, Mr. Ambassador? You're a distinguished diplomat representing Iran. This is a very serious accusation that you're making, that the CIA was responsible for killing this beautiful, young woman.

GHADIRI (through translator): I'm not saying that the CIA had done this. There are different groups. Could be intelligence services, could be CIA, could be the terrorists. However, these are the people who do these things.

You could ask Mr. Andreotti, who was an Italian diplomat whether Gladitators were a secret group related to CIA or not. Now they of course they use better methods. Of course, you're not going to say that CIA is a sacred organization that hasn't done anything to other worlds.

BLITZER: Mr. Ambassador, why won't your government allow people to go mourn at a memorial service for Nada, as her family has requested?

GHADIRI (through translator): We have no problem with mournings. Naturally we don't want to provide an opportunity for the rioters to come in and make the situation worse.

O Huffington Post traz uma outra - pequena - parte da entrevista:

WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: Well, we're anxious to hear your government's response to all of these developments which have been very dramatic over the past two weeks. A key question many people around the world are asking is, why did your security forces kill that 26 year-old beautiful student named Nada?

GHADIRI (through translator): This death of Ms. Nada is very suspicious. She was shot from behind. The location was where there was not much demonstration, there was no police presence and the gun that shot and killed her was a smuggled gun. It was not a government-issued gun. [...]

My question is that how is that this Nada was shot from behind and several cameras take that. And this is done in an area where there was no important demonstration... If the CIA wants to kill some people and attribute that to the elements of the government and then choosing a girl would be something good for them because it would have much higher impact. Therefore, we believe and we are looking into this to find who the elements were who did this. [...]

Video do Huffington Post mostrando o momento em que um manifestante é assassinado no Irã:

Um pouco de lucidez na UE, aparentemente. O Primeiro Ministro Sueco, Fredrik Reinfeldt, que assumirá em breve a presidência do grupo, afirmou que considera contraproducente aplicar novas sanções ao Irã. Tudo bem que suas razões podem não ser as melhores - Direitos Humanos, Respeito, Liberdade e etc - e sim puramente econômicas, dado que a Suécia mantém excelente relação comercial com o Irã, mas, ainda assim é uma boa notícia visto que sanções poderiam apenas reforçar a posição de Ahmadinejad no país e comprovar a idéia de "perseguição ocidental" pregada por ele.
"My worry is that talk of sanctions, talk of a tougher line might just be the start of an excuse for the Iranian leadership not to listen in to what is now being said by the Iranian people."
