Iran utilized Phosphorus Gas during the Crackdown

 It’s been documented by the Iran’s Human Rights Documentation Center (IHRDC) that during the crackdown after 2009 election, the Islamic regime utilized Phosphorus gas on occasions among opponents in the streets of Tehran. There is evidence documented; however, many witnesses were confirmed of utilizing dangerous and odd forms of military gases on civilians during those stunning days of Iran.  
Here I quote from that evidence, the human rights violation case of ‘Farideh’. She says:
“…I participated in the protests on June 20, 2009 – the day Neda [Agha-Soltan] was killed – and was injured. I was in the vicinity of Tohid Square in Tehran when government forces attacked the protestors with some type of gas. At first I thought it was tear gas, but I soon realized it was something different. By that point I had become used to the feel of tear gas due to repeated exposure in the protests. But this was different. Everyone around me collapsed to the ground. I myself suddenly felt dizzy and nauseous and my knees buckled right there on the street. People from the surrounding shops who witnessed the incident brought water and poured some on my head. I felt a little bit better. Somebody helped lay me down on a bus to take me home. I felt only half-conscious on the ride home. I remember that while I was on the bus, a woman in chador[long veil] told my friend that I deserved to be in that state, and that the election was over. Her careless comment started an argument among the bus riders… I later learned that the mysterious gas I had been sprayed with was phosphorous gas. After I was exposed to the gas, small blisters began appearing all over my body. When I went to my doctor, he examined the blisters and told me that the lesions were synonymous with exposure to phosphorous gas. Today, even after nine months have passed since the incident, the wounds are still visible on my body…” (Farideh interviewed by IHRDC on April 18th, 2010)
 Now the question is what kind of state does this to his people? I strongly maintain the fact that Islamic dictatorship in Iran has no mercy to humanity. Whoever does this to his people instantly and without any further consideration or even fear, cannot have mercy to people of other countries around the globe. Undoubtedly, the common sense is responding clearly and decisively that the ‘Deterrence Theory’ fails if the current regime of Iran, the rouge & Stalinist state, reaches WMDs. In fact, they showed up in a number of occasions that they have secretly worked on worse cases of chemicals & biological as soon as the Iran-Iraq 8-year war had begun. It was almost around that period of time in which they had begun their secret quest towards the Atomic bomb. To avoid a disaster such as North Korea to happen in Iran there’s not much time left. You can either stay neutral do nothing or serving humanity by acting in favor of a free and democratic regime to establish in Iran.
The choice is all yours whether you’re helping Iranians fighting a barbaric & brutal regime or…
