Iran's supreme leader upset that Elon Musk hasn't offered peace plan yet
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (The Egg) — Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei addressed the country Tuesday and is reportedly upset that Elon Musk hasn’t offered a peace plan yet for the growing unrest in the country.
Khamenei made the address on state TV, calling on the billionaire businessman and geopolitical analyst to offer a completely one-sided peace plan to quell the “rioting.”
“We’re intrigued by his Ukrainian peace plan, in which Ukraine just gives up for nothing in return,” Khamenei said. “I’m calling on Mr. Musk to offer us his wisdom.”
Later in his remarks, Khamenei proposed some options to bring peace to the country, such as blaming Israel, and implementing only “lite beatings” for dress code violations. He seemed surprised that the country’s youth don’t want to live in repression anymore.
The protests in Iran have been growing steadily for over a month, sparked by the death of a young woman, Mahsa Amini, in police custody. Despite efforts to crack down on protestors by beating and killing them, the Iranian regime has been unsuccessful in breaking the spirit of the Iranian people.
Iranian officials have been monitoring Musk’s Twitter account for several weeks now, waiting for a glimmer of hope to have an answer for the unrest. The officials remain optimistic after hearing about Musk’s idea for Taiwan to just give up too.
