On the streets and in the gathering places of Iran, millions celebrated the re-election of President Bush with congratulations and discreet V for victory signs to each other.

The Student Movement Coordination Committe for Democracy in Iran (SMCCDI) Website reports that not just a few, but millions of Iranians hoping for reform in that country are excited about President Bush and his promises of democracy for the whole region.

However, SMCCDI reports, "As Iranians and especially the younger generations have become happy, those affiliated to the Islamic regime are seen deeply worried about their future."

It says the ruling regime in Iran, and all of its lobbyists and apologists, spent piles of money hoping for a Bush defeat.

They even organized a celebration in Tehran of the day the American hostages were taken in Iran in 1979, but could only manage a "few thousand professional protesters" from a city of 12 million inhabitants.

The site reports, "commemoration of one of the main Islamist act (sic) of terror ecountered another massive popular rejection."

Interesting that the average Iranian in the street would be so upbeat about the results of an American presidential election. Do they know something that we don't? Do you suspect that they see a future with President Bush and continued oppression if Kerry had won?

It's true what they say about the US: "American sneezes & the whole world catches a cold."
