The White House said Friday that Iran is scared it could be next after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak gave up power.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, briefing on his last day on the job, hailed the Egyptian protesters and said Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's government is “quite frankly scared of the will of its people.”

Gibbs said that if the Iranian government is as confident in the righteousness of its power it “would have nothing to fear” from mass protests like those that have gripped Egypt.

“They're not confident,” Gibbs said. “They’re scared.”

Protestors demonstrating for reforms in Iran were suppressed by that country’s government in 2009.

Gibbs read verbatim a statement from an officer in Iran's Revolutionary Guard that described how Iran will kill dissenters. Gibbs said that statement reflects how afraid Iranian officials are that the people will organize.

“They're scared of that, and they're threatening those who might do it with death,” Gibbs said.

The desperate US will do its darnest to save face ASAP if possible after Mobarak's fiasco by gaining a point in world's public's eye pushing IRI to fall.

A fat chance! Thankfully, Iran is not governed by a "Gharbzadeh"  bunch such as Iranfirst clan who would sell anything to the US or the Zionists just to quench their life time thirst of IRI hatred.
