Comment about a Arthes from a Iranian who express his feelings!
For the past several months, there have been rumors that elements inside Iran’s main army ‘Artesh’ are discontent with the continued repression against peaceful protesters by the Iranian government.
The story claimed that several officers within Artesh had sent out a letter (Iranian website Gooya.) denouncing the regime’s brutal suppression tactics against the Green Movement. It also warned the government that it will take action if violence continues. The letter was not signed, no names., no ranks, no original copy of the letter.
This has been a source of hope for some people supporting the Green Movement. But so far, there has been almost nothing to back this up.
What has Artesh done so far? Have they tried to stop the IRGC or Basij? Or the riot police or regular coppers? No. They have done absolutely nothing. Even when dozens were killed on Ashura, Artesh remained silent as it always has.
