    Faster, Please! » Khamenei Said to be in Coma

    Yesterday afternoon at 2.15PM local time, Khamenei collapsed and
    was taken to his special clinic. Nobody – except his son and the
    doctors – has since been allowed to get near him.
    His official, but secret, status is: “in the hands of the gods”.

    Reportedly this collapse is natural. Many would like him to move to his
    afterlife but reportedly the collapse was not ‘externally induced’
    [no poisioning]. The few insiders who know about the collapse see
    this development “as a gift from the gods”.

    His condition had already seriously deteriorated over the last
    months, aggravated by his nervous condition due to [1] his
    inability to solve the problems created by his manipulation of the
    election results and the refusal of [a large part of] the
    population to accept this, plus [2] his loss of religious authority
    by means of the repeated condemnations of events by senior clerics

    Reportedly the principal aims of Khamenei of the last couple of
    weeks, if not months, were to ensure [1] a positive reputation as
    his legacy and [2] the physical survival of his family members and
    their wealth, reportedly now largely in Syria and in Turkey (remember the truck convoy of $8.5 billion in cash and gold that was seized by the Turks?).

    Outlook is uncertain but speculation is – considering that he is in
    coma since more than 24 hours – that he may not come out of his coma and/or that he may die very soon.

    If he dies it is expected that immediately a bloody clash will
    develop between the powers behind Rafsanjani, who will immediately
    claim temporary religious authority and overall control, and the
    powers behind Achmadinejad who will scramble in order to regain
    control and ensure their survival.

    If true, things will be hopping once again in Iran.

    the supreme leader collapsed yesterday, but now there are rumours that it was very serious and perhaps he's in a coma.

    absolutely no proof, but this is how things are in Iranian news... they report and hope it's true. Source seems legitimate, but are HIS sources legitimate? hmm

    perhaps proof that madness is not genetic? hmm

    I really hope this is true, because this COULD be analogous to Stalin's death... as in, if the system continues, it will be a more confused and weakened one.

    Me too. Given the recent protests of the sane, this - if true - is a big deal.

    In Iran is one head mullah dies there are always ten more Radical Islamic Nuts who will vie to take his place.

    I pray to Jesus that He will destroy that country so we will not have to.

    well, that's true but there is a tremendous amount of economic pressure coming from the business community which is growing... but eliminating political Islam in Iran is almost a pre-requisite for genuine progress

    The entire reason behind the recent revolution in Iran was about the people wanting to remove religion from government. The opposite of what conservatives want to do here. Isn't that funny?
