Tehran To Be Shut Down For Two Days Because Of Sandstorm

Discussion in 'News And Current Events' started by Visionary, Jul 6, 2009.

  1. I'm hoping that the presence of a massive sandstorm shutting down normal business during a period in which the faithful are encouraged to cloister themselves inside their homes and mosques to engage in prayer and introspection anyways is taken as somewhat of a sign.
  2. It is definitely a sign. The storm is the people, blanketing Iran. Each grain of sand, a person seeking freedom. The regime cannot resist the power of the storm, no matter how hard they try.

    Look what the physical sandstorm does. The same can be done by a storm of people, and more.
  3. Also ironic that a sandstorm should shut down Iran after AJ's early post election statement called the protesters 'dust and sand'
  4. Guess dust and sand can have a huge impact, can't it?

    A shame tho

    The pity is that Moussavi suporters had planned to use this religious festival to engineer a de facto strike under the guise of religious observance, but now the government can say there was no strike, just a dust storm. :-(

    Or, instead, maybe something can be done under cover of the dust storm so that they have a surprise that they cannot deny when the storm is over. This is not a bad thing, and the timing and symbolism of it are profound.

    There is meaning on so many levels.
