The ashes of “bitter” protests “still smoldering”: IRGC commander

An official of the Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) referred to the post-June-2009 anti-regime uprisings by the Iranian people on Thursday and said, “A year after the sedition movement [protests] and the mayhem caused in the country, the ashes of sedition are still smoldering.”

According to the state-run ILNA news agency, Siamak Garmabadri, head of the IRGC’s center of political studies, added, “Last year, the enemies launched that sedition and mayhem in the country to uproot the Islamic system forever.”

“This was no ordinary movement. Last year’s events caused an enormous sedition which was planned, organized and funded by domestic and foreign adversaries,” he added.

He explicitly stressed the “bitterness” of the “incredible extent” of the protests for the regime and said that the mullahs’ factions continue to face the threat of more divisions and tensions among them.
