Iran Hopes

A Weblog on Iranian Affairs (Formerly Iran Votes 2005)

Wednesday, August 31, 2005

At the time of publishing this post, the bridge stampede deaths in Baghdad is reported at 852 by some sources and expected to climb. Condolences are all that I can offer to grieving Iraqis.

Conspiracy plot hatchers have come out quickly. The Age (Australia) reports: 'Iran today led a worldwide chorus of horror and outrage over the deaths of almost 1,000 people in a stampede as they headed to a Shi'ite shrine in Iraq, blaming "suspicious hands" bent on causing havoc in the country.
Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi expressed his country's "condolences and sympathy with the Iraqi people and government." Asefi said: "suspicious hands are involved in conspiracies to incite violence and bloodshed among the different Iraqi groups and tribes so that they disturb the security and calm of the Iraqi people. " '

Let's ignore such comments. At least, let Iraqi people grieve in peace.

Let ignore Assefi's comment in particular since the "suspicious hands" are those of the IRI.
