Jenabe Noury- I clicked on the link you had provided but I was not able to see the poem. I found the poem by Dylan Thomas eventually, a every powerful poem indeed, thank you.

It is a winter's tale
That the snow blind twilight ferries over the lakes
And floating fields from the farm in the cup of the vales,
Gliding windless through the hand folded flakes,
The pale breath of cattle at the stealthy sail,

And the stars falling cold,
And the smell of hay in the snow, and the far owl
Warning among the folds, and the frozen hold
Flocked with the sheep white smoke of the farm house cowl
In the river wended vales where the tale was told.

Pure crap. Americans have not been banned from Cuba. All you have to do is travel to Canada or Mexico and go from there.

I do not consider the cheapest all inclusive stays of $100 a day (excluding transportation) to be cheap. I just stayed in Cancun area and my 5 hotels averaged $45 a day with food about $15. This is probably the most expensive area in Mexico.

On the Mayan Riviera, where I stayed in a concrete dungeon with no AC, one 13W bulb, and nails for hooks, for $50 a day (it rose to $100 with less advance) I saw a hamburger at Ziggy's for a mere $17 plus VAT plus tip (ie $20).

From Cancun, it's an hour flight, but it was too expensive for me. US citizens have been able to travel directly from the US if signed up with a cultural or educational organization. I wanted to go on the Nation trip, but it was $5000 for a week!


The truth is that there is nothing like personal contact and trade to create strong ties among people and nations.

While Houti takeover undoubtedly adds to Tehran's leverage, it would be incorrect to overlook the long running internal dynamics of conflict in there. Below are some sources that also take into consideration such internal dynamics:

Why are you avoiding a substantial exchange?
Could it be because you can't refute any of those historical facts mentioned about Rastakhiz party, SAVAK, shah's selective repression, shanty towns before 1979,....
Could it be that admitting to those historical facts proves that monarchy was the effective incubator of Islamic Republic. Read more

Why are you calling a the Shah a clown? look, I am not one of these hardcore monarchists who get angry about this...but I dont see a reason to repeat in every sentence, that he was a clown. I also do not say stupid Marx, murderous Hitler, stupid Stalin, murdeoues Khomeini....If you want to be taken serious.

I do not see a REASON for this..but it is typical iranian and it shows, that somebody has some psychological problems and not so much arguments, so he tries to ridicule somebody. Hmm..very poor.

By the way, of course there was a revolution taking place, did I doubt that? Read more

Because it´s going to be late in europe..in short.

Yes, these are more or less facts, but the question was: Did these facts lead to the revolution?

Iran Today:

- Single party Hiszbollah-dictatorship: a historical fact.
- SAVAMA and basijis: a historical fact.
- Repression and elimination of all opposition except conservative mullahs: a historical fact.
- Growth and expansions of slums and shanty towns also AFTER 1979: a sociological, historical fact.
- Khamenei being his own worst enemy, by isolating himself from all sectors of Iranian society: a historical fact.

So, concerning to your theory, there must have been a revolution in Iran every day since 1979. Why in this case there was NOT a Revolution? Something is missing in your theory.

Chinese, Korean and Japanese, phillipinos, Vietnamese, Indonesians, Indians, Nepalese, Pakistanis are not the same race, but when they take the census they mark Asians because all these countries are on the Asian continent.

West Asia is a hop and a skip from south east Asia , but when they fill out the US census things get really complicated for them. Don't blame the census, blame yourselves for going along with this "White, Middle Eastern" idea. When they say fill out North African, middle eastern they are just trying to gage how many "potential terrorists" they have in this country. So you go along with it, it is your problem.

History is the ultimate teacher.
You're not able to respond to the fact that even your clown king admitted to a peoples revolution in Iran, a revolution which he acknowledged hearing.
But even after 35 years because of your ideological distortions you're still not in a position to admit such fact.
Along the same line:
- Single party Rastakhiz dictatorship: a historical fact.
- SAVAK's hand in glove cooperation with Hojatieh: a historical fact.
- Repression and elimination of all opposition except conservative mullahs: a historical fact.
- Growth and expansions of slums and shanty towns before 1979: a sociological, historical fact.
- Shah being his own worst enemy, by isolating himself from all sectors of Iranian society: a historical fact.
Do you have any thing to say about these historical facts or is all this history just some "negative vibes" for you? Read more

The so-called "Peaceful" democracies of the West are those responsible for the happenings, and the entire mess in the Middle East...those same colonizers sponsored and brought back a despised, incompetent, vicious stooge in Iran, ending the 100+ year old national desire for democracy that had newly sprouted and in the early stages of fruition. Consequently, and as a result of that demonic, underhanded selfish decision, we ended up with the Islamofascists, every bit as bad as the treasonous M R Pahlavi...Question is; whether one has anything to do with the other. In other words can we argue that because, Akhoonds, are horrible...then according to you, one should conclude that the treasonous, thieving Pahlavi clan, responsible for that catastrophes that ensued, were good! It is as saying/arguing that since Hitler murdered more than Stalin...then Stalin is to be considered a humanitarian... when he was every bit as vicious as Hitler.

There are/were both horrifying dictatorial entities/regimes that Iranians should try to get rid off...or dissention would destroy us!!!

Worshipping personalities rather than judging their deeds is undemocratic and SICK!

It is done by the Basidgis, Revolutionary Guards and other sponsors of terrorism and dictatorship, the Shahollahi/Hezbollahs! Read more

We wouldn’t had Sohrab Sepehri, Forough Farrokhzad, Ahmad Shamlou, and so many others if Shah didn’t created an environment so these poets could practice their crafts so we could enrich our life
Most important achievements of Pahlavi’s for modern Iran was the generation who grow up under their ruling were highly educated, motivated, future thinkers, painters, writers, poets, movie makers, politicians, engineers, scientists and so many other professionals.

Islamic Republic’s generation are Basij, Hazbelhala, Importers, acid throwers, embassy take overs, and the most important one the ran away brains.

There been equal amount of time has gone by for a clear comparison results of both regimes.

"Why would pointing out to direct responsibility of so called pahlavi dynasty in creation of Islamic Republic..."

Because this is not prooven and a very superficial view, it is even not an analysis, and in the end your assumption. I do not say that you are NOT right with your thesis, but at least you should be able to proove it....am I right?" (Btw: I CAN proove that you are wrong, because of my OWN research). If you want to discuss about Politics, it is not enough to repeat slogans like "Workes of the world unite". this is a SLOGAN.

Nor you, nor P-J has brought any FACTS.

Did you ever asked yourselve, why people here on iranian.com see things DIFFERENT as you, and that the only way you know to convince us from your theses is repeating slogans which others OTHERS, Blueyed and blond people have created for you? I always analyze and so a research about theories, before I repeat them...I dont want to be USED. Nor by Monarchists, nor by Communist, nor by Islamists, Nor by Liberal Democrats. For me, The Well Being of Iran is in the center of my View. In Your Case and P.J.s, the IDEOLOGY is the center, and people like you and as like the Islamists and Democrats put the ideology (of WESTERN Foreigners in europe, the US and Makkeh -> Like Marx, John Locke.,mohammad) ABOVE the Well being of Iran.

So youre discussion has always to end with "Shah was bad". Even if god personally would proove you wrong, you woud at once find another point.

So we make an experiment:
-> Amnesty International said during the Shahs Time 100.000 persons were imprisoned.

Any Evidence?

(I can assure you, that I have the evidence, that this is nonsense. M yrecommandation: find the Original Amnesty Year book, I have it of course as a pdf.) Read more

Now here is a great case of double standards.
Why would pointing out to direct responsibility of so called pahlavi dynasty in creation of Islamic Republic be considered "negative energy" but a murderous reign of an absolutist monarch, brought to power through a bloody coup, is considered "positive!"
Didn't you own clown king went to national television and said he had heard the voice of people's revolution? Read more
