Man... some people
... don't even know the meaning of SHAME

I think the last time I had so much fun, I did not have any clothes
on. It seems the whole world has gone mad and in its madness decided to
talk about the Pahlavis again.
are awake" is in line with the illusionary world most monarchists
in/out of Iran live in. Cyrus Kadivar does not even realize how stupid he
sounds when he talks about subjects like "campaigns to get rid
of poisonous snakes", "disinfection" of a 30 km (one
assumes ) area, "the liberal press" (shit, where? Iran under
the Pahlavis? Is this the revisionist account of Iranian history or what?
Only if I had realized we had "liberal press" I would have stayed).
I must confess I nearly fractured a rib or two laughing so
hard and falling off the chair after reading the following:
"Nassiri, who was later executed after the revolution told me that
they were released after a few days," Mr. Ansari said. "Let's
face it. We were not as sophisticated as the West. Sometimes the methods
were crude and some innocent people may have been arrested. But imagine
if a terrorist had succeeded in getting through."
This is by far the biggest load of blatant bollocks I have heard for
quite some time. Now I can tell you first hand that one of my cousins who
was caught distributing leaflets was kept in Evin for over a year. On his
release he showed us all the usual cigarette burns and so on. The favorite
torture of those days for someone guilty of distributing leaflets was red-hot
boiled eggs up the anus. I must ask Mr. Ansari and Mr. Kadivar if they
have had the pleasure of such injection on a daily basis, because I am sure
their resolve about the monarchy will somehow weaken if they had personally
experienced some of the goodies the Pahlavis dished out. I don't suppose
boiled eggs are very sophisticated, but then again we always knew the Pahlavis
were a bunch of buggers.
Another amusing little gem was the following:
The Shah, on the other hand was amused. He had enjoyed himself. He stood
up, proud as a peacock... The world was paying respect to his achievements
and position as a world class leader.
WORLD-CLASS LEADER? What? Little Mammali? A world class leader? Are you
completely off your peanut sized brain? The man could not even speak nor
write English properly although he had been the nokar of the Americans
since Mossadegh was gotten rid-of by the CIA.
Now I ask you honestly, would you buy a second hand car from someone
like Mr. Ansari knowing that he has made the following statement?
"Persepolis put Iran on the map," Mr. Ansari told me. "The
American charge d'affaires kept telling me that it was the best exercise
in public relations he had ever seen. Had we done it any other way it would
have cost us many more millions."
Personally, I have two theories. Either Ansari is so stupid that he does
not comprehend anything, or that he has lived in such a fantasy world for
so long that he does not realize he is stupid. Either way I just want to
know how people like him managed to have so much money when they fled Iran.
Was it old money? Did his Royal Badness give it to them? Did they just knick
it? Where the hell did they get it? Were they unreal businessmen making
loads of money with their massive entrepreneurial brain? Or was it that
they were just plain thieves, eating together and even now protecting one
another? A bit like you scratch my back I suck your cock Royal Highness.
Now this next bit really takes the carrot:
The Shah finding himself somewhat on the defensive described critics
who alleged the celebration had cost $2 billion as "not sound of mind".
In any case, he told one journalist, Iran "couldn't care less".
As far as he was concerned the whole thing had been a success. Besides
what were people complaining about? Did they expect the Imperial Court
of Iran to offer their guests "bread and radishes"?
Shit! and I thought some of our own people would have been happy with
bread and radishes. Imperial Court? Laughing out loud wasn't the bastard
the son of a simple soldier? Hate people who forget their roots. Gooz makes
a loud noise but comes out of the same place as other bodily refuse.
Both Mr. Ansari and Mr. Kadivar continue to amuse us with little jokes
It is a forgotten fact that the celebrations at Persepolis was only
a component of a greater programme of development in Iran. It was the cherry
on top of the cake.
Did I l miss something? Which programme? Where was it? What did they
Then they collectively try to rewrite history in the traditional worthy
of Hollywood, with the cowboy ridding into the sunset. Now this statement
completely puzzles me. What does it mean? Can someone claiming to be of
sound mind make such a statement?
It was not the expenses that proved the Shah's undoing but rather the
sudden influx of petrodollars after 1974 when the monarch pushed OPEC to
quadruple the price of oil.
The conclusion, well what can I say. Even President Bush's propaganda
department would be happy to give these two clowns a job.
"HIM was a true patriot," he said
confidently. "I have no doubt about it. He entered history as probably
the most misunderstood leader in the 20th century."
Now as though all this was not enough we had the double bill treat in
the form of the letters
by Abdol Madjid Madjidi. To Mr. Majidi I have one question to ask: How
much did they pay you those days for the public service you were providing
for the Iranian people? They must have paid you a shit load of money mate
if you could afford to be "retired" all these years you've been
out of Iran. But, hey,hell, what am I saying here, you were the man in charge
of the big money. The Big Cheese. Mr. Budget Man.
Mr. Budget Man: lots of money went missing in Iran. Big bribes were paid
and received and you were sitting on top of the food chain. So please shut
up about debate and morality. You are by any standard the source of the
rot. Man... some people don't even know the meaning of SHAME.
