Gelareh


During the 2009 protests in Iran, the world watched as the young woman Neda Soltani was shot and bled to death on the street. Neda was a symbol of thousands who were murdered, beaten or imprisoned by this terrible regime. Despite the terrible actions of the regime, the world's leaders did nothing.

Gelareh Bagherzadeh, 30, was a scientist and molecular biology student at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. She was a key member of SabzHouston, a group peacefully protesting for women's rights and freedom in her native Iran. In interviews Gelareh was reticent about giving her full name, in fear of retribution. Late Sunday night she was silenced by a single bullet to the head near her home in Southwest Houston.

The Houston police have no clues in the murder. The assassin, who followed or laid in wait for her, has escaped without a trace. This terrible act of violence against a women's rights advocate is suspiciously like an international "hit". (Travelling to another country to murder someone is called war.) Will there ever be justice for Neda or Gelareh?

As to "suspiciously like an international "hit""
of an Iranian dissident in the USA
is there any speculation about the possibility
that it could have been
retaliation for the recent killing of an Iranian physicist in Iran ?

If so, it is indeed something "called war".
As General Sherman said: "War is hell".
I wish that humanity could get along without it.

On the site you link, they say: In the mean time, we request everyone to avoid speculating about the motivations behind this tragedy.

I hate to say it, but if I were an Iranian physicist, I'd be working hard on making an atomic bomb.

Not to use it, but simply in recognition of the fact that other countries seem to leave North Korea alone.

But let's get off that topic. Here's nice footage of a crow clearly playing in the snow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYcgL7Nif30

I am sorry to hear that our world is not safe for enquiry or that anyone would be excluded from our right to learn and know.

Why in a peaceful world would Iran or anyone need nukes that take away from the mouths of its people- the ancient states should know this better than the West.

And Carl, I get your point but there are no necessary realities beyond our common sense- I do not think we can leave Iran to its own isolated Korean state of hell and starvation if it threatens to promote proliferation to say Venezuela.

tears”. Yang Yoseob was also a singer who faced many setbacks before he managed to debut. Because of this, he could understand the feelings of those who aspires to be singers, hence the tears.
Yang Yoseob even had times where he wanted to give up on his dreams, but he held on and came to his current agency with Lee Kikwang. Eventually, he became a part of BEAST.

It was also reported that BEAST officials couldn’t hide their surprise when they heard that the usual-manly Yoseob cried during the recording process.
