This is Clare Lopez after the showing of the film, ‘Iranium’ which took place on Superbowl Sunday, Feb 6 2011. It was a complete sell out with over 50 people being turned back at the door. Minister of heritage, James Moore was there and spoke before the film. I will have that up shortly as well as an interview with a Persian language radio show host here in Canada.
The security for this show was stunning. There were sniffer dogs that went through the whole building before anyone was allowed in. There were police of several kinds in and outside the building. Coat checks and bag checks were mandatory for everyone. People accepted it stoically. Canadians showed real conviction by coming out to this event. I was personally very proud to see so many Canadians coming to this movie. It was an act of defiance uncharacteristic of Canadians as a rule.
Look for much more on this over the next day or so. I will be uploading more footage. Part II of this Q&A is uploaded in this post and other interviews will appear in posts of their own.
I will be uploading part II shortly. Meanwhile, this SITREP just came in from STRATFOR. I thought it was fitting to post it here:
February 7, 2011 STRATFOR:
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps navy commander said Iranian forces would close the Strait of Hormuz if any military action is taken against Iran, Mehr News Agency reported Feb. 7. Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said Iran is capable of closing the Strait of Hormuz at any time, and that the slightest threatening movement to undermine the security of the region would be met with a very firm response. He said the United States knows it cannot tolerate the repercussions that come with inspecting Iranian ships.
