|Khamenei followers being beaten endorse Ahmadinejad in Tehran|
Following the disagreement between the Iranian Supreme leader Khamenei and Ahmadi nejad, and the fear that more disagreement is likely between the Iranian Cabinet and the Supreme leader in the future, reliable sources have informed us that the Revolutionary Guard is preparing for a plan by the name of “Emergence Plan”. According to the initial points of the plan, that has been directly endorsed by the Supreme leader instead rather than the Supreme National Security Council, the Ground Forces of the Revolutionary Guard, in cooperation with the Basij militia, will be appointed, in 3 phases, to take control of the security of the cities, organizations, and state Ministry offices in order to carry out the execution of the plan.
An informed source in the General Headquarters of the Revolutionary Guard told Iran Briefing: ”…the primary phase of the plan will begin in the mosques and Basij militia bases of all regions by choosing and organizing a network of forces. So that, if the country plunged in turmoil, the regime will have forces throughout Iran ready to perform the urgent plan of controlling.
It is important to say that Basij militia was ordered to recruit people who are completely loyal to the Supreme leader and to avoid employing any pro-Ahmadi nejad individuals. Since last week, members of the Revolutionary Guard Intelligence Organization have been assigned to all Basij Militia regions in order to supervise and monitor the forces recruiting process for the Emergence Plan. Furthermore, in a command that was mentioned in the initial points of the Emergence Plan approved by General Commander of Revolutionary Guard, it was pointed out: “...in order to restore the situation in any crisis as soon as possible, a network of loyal forces from the Basij militia should be available to be deployed in any circumstances".
It seems that the Revolutionary Guard is worried that the disagreement between the Pro-government and Pro-Supreme leader will spread out into the streets, a situation that may be used by the people and Green Movement supporters to organize protests all over the country.
While the commanders of the Revolutionary Guard had previously expected that 70 per cent of the Basij Militia forces and the Revolutionary Guard personnel would rebel and avoid cracking down on protestors in serious crisis, the Revolutionary Guard would face an even more serious crisis among its forces due to this division between the Supreme leader and Ahmadi nejad.
The Basij militia and undercover plain clothed forces operating during the protests to Presidential election played a key role in cracking down on the protesters after the announcement of the Supreme National Security Council that police force was not able to restore the situation in the capital and other cities.
Parts of the Emergence Plan state '...According to a plan that will be sent later, the Revolutionary Guard must keep control of all the governmental offices and the Ministries.'
A reliable source has told Iran Briefing that following the secret preparations of the Emergence plan last week among the personnel of the Revolutionary Guard, the plan will be carried out in two phases of civilian manoeuvres in the coming weeks.
