  1. Elon says activating but how can people use his internet without terminals? no point if the people cant access it

  2. ….Censorship by Mainstream Media Mafia. The Results Of A Survey Of Journalists Blame Misinformation On Right-Winged Conspiracy Theorists – That’s No Surprise. Read in The Published Reporter.

  3. Thank you Mr. Elon Musk.
    Thank you for standing up for human rights & free speech. ✌️🕊️☮️

  4. America's hallmark is hypocrisy… They do what African Americans do and when they take to the streets they are called vandals…
    In Saudi Arabia, this regime can commit atrocities against its own people and against the nation of Yeman.
    They close their eyes when a journalist who is Saudi and lived in America is murdered and cut to pieces… However, in relation to the demonization of Iran, it is a systematic rhetoric even if it is a lie or even a truth adapted to the interests of these enlightened people… They only show the demonstrations, but they do not show the destruction that organized groups supported by Mko and Israel are causing in this country… They don't even have the decency to show the video where the young woman enters the police station.. They will be an example of a proud, independent country with tremendous resilience
    Long live Iran

  5. iran admitted killing 3000 protesters in 2019. all of them have names. but your media won't treat them with the same drama as with Khachoggi's murder.

  6. DYK, Elon means 'Emerald' in Afrikaans, his home country's 🇿🇦 top language & his mother tongue 😎

  7. What an utter utter baboon explaining the situation . “Logistical problems “ mate just explain it simply . Starlink is useless in Iran because although it is active , they don’t have the structure to receive the signal . No router/ satellite / modem – all the the things needed for an internet connection to be received

  8. lmao. yeah without a receiver dish its active. Damn so much bull crap in MSM in the past few days. first fix your current customers issues then go about loudmouthing iran. Elon you have left your current starlink customers in europe and US with issue high and dry with many without services and no tech support and also slowing down speed as more customers are added. Starlink is a disaster and all this liar and MSM can do are to lie and spread propaganda.

  9. The best way the United States can help people in Iran is give them their Mehdi…. That’s the only way this will end. Guaranteed. Israel and the US picked Donald Trump as their Messiah…. They’re laughing at us saying, oh you guys said you have Mehdi, where is he? Lol

  10. 60% Brainless traders shorting the market. Imagine how high we will go when the short squeeze happens?
    Even with bad news!!! 😆

  11. Can you make a video explaining how beginners can make huge profit within a short period of time? I mean i was at a seminar and the host spoke about making well over $880,000 within 4months of investing $150,000 i just need to know how

  12. Iranian are fighting for their rights. Iranian people do not want this regime. Be the voice of iranian.
    Woman ❤️. life ❤️. liberty
