Iran protesters and rising sunspots

Sunspots give off solar flares that increase negative ionization on earth--and increased negative ionization during sunspot maximum periods increases human excitablity and activity. A cycle averages 11.5 years, though it can be shorter or longer. Right now we are coming out of the bottom of the last cycle (which peaked in 2000-2001). More details here.

While people will rebel when things are bad enough, no matter what the sunspots are doing, a revolution starting at the beginning of a cycle will probably be a big one, even if things calm down for a few more months. (And that includes that little secessionist movement that is getting going.)

But angry Iranians don't seem to be in the mood for calming down.
The Iran government has clamped down on media so it's hard to tell what is and isn't true. But two stories bolstering those who say the election was stolen are here in Forbes and here. That a disgruntled government official leaked results showing Mousavi won is reported in the New York Times and the British Telegraph. Articles about uncertainties include in the Washington Post and Salon.com. Needless to say Iranian challenger Mousavi and his supporters want a brand new election where they will actually have election observers at every polling place!

The Mullahs are promising to count some votes - but that's not enough. Those who want war against Iran hope they can both prove that Ahmadinejad cheated AND see him remain president - one more excuse for a military attack on Iran. Those who love freedom and democracy want to see the truth come out, whatever it is. But by now the election results have no credibility so a new election with observers (not to mention the right for ANYONE to run instead only those approved by the Mullahs) is really the only answer.

In any case, an Israeli and/or U.S. attack on Iran under the pretext of protecting (the colonialist apartheid state of) Israel, will only lead to massive genocidal murder of Iranians and probably escalate to world nuclear war.

Iran101.blogspot.com is one of many sites with lots of photos and videos. Their logo shows a popular picture. (Not to encourage American anti-capitalist black blockers to get a hard on looking at stuff burning in the streets!)
