“Iran began recounting some of the votes cast in its disputed presidential election Monday in an apparent attempt to placate opposition protesters, and the government dismissed the idea of downgrading relations with Britain despite accusing that country of stirring up unrest.”
First the regime declared Akhmadinejad the winner without doubt, then they reversed their decision to allow for a five-day review, then they declared Akhmadinejad the undisputed winner, and now they are going to recount a full 10% of the vote.
Once again, following up on previous reports, these are the actions of an unfocused, desperate regime trying simply to survive. A partial vote recount does not address denying Neda’s family the simple, but sacred Muslim rite of mourning. A partial vote recount does not address the use of foreign hoodlums to kill the people. The Supreme Leader does not understand that token recounts, no doubt that will ‘reveal’ no inconsistencies, do not even begin to to address the fundamental loss of credibility he and his waning supporters have lost.
