When Iranian workers are paid the same wages Australian workers get then Iranian workers won't need subsidies.
I am aware of all that and no doubt darker days are a head but the bigger question is, the whole idea of having subsidies. No one is asking where does all the money go and why is there even a need for subsidies? Read more
Constitutions is like history books. The people in power get to tell their version of history or make their own.
If there is a change of in form government in Iran whomever takes power get to do what the F they want. I would think. That is the way it has always worked since the beginning of man creating governments.
Now if there is a orderly change of government then they can make changes to the constitution to accommodate the new realities by negotiating between the political parties as to what those changes should be. Like here in the US. Otherwise the constitution is back to the drawing board.
Well! Back in the old i.com days someone wrote a blog about why Shah fell or something to that effect. Then a commentator justifiably responded that it is so presumptuous of you to write a belog like you are in third grade writing an essay about "How did you spend your summer vacation!" So I'm not going to answer this question as a comment in a belog!
Same is the case here when our good friend is writing an essay about why lifting the sanctions mean nothing! Why?! because the "constitution" doesn't allow anything! Read more
Explain it to me. My first two years of college I wanted to be a diplomat so I majored in Political science. But I quickly wised up. XD
So explain to me about what you think is going to happen after sanctions are lifted. I passed political science 101 with flying colors. Read more
Europe began the year 2015 with its first anti-austerity government voted in, as Syriza took over in Greece.
Europe will end the year 2015 as the second anti-austerity government will be voted in, as Podemos will take over the government of Spain in December of 2015.
What will 2016 bring along? And which country will be next in this anti-austerity trend? Portugal, Ireland, France, Italy,... Read more
I saw a setup with cameras and equipment for a clip for a movie but not sure if it was for an Iranian or an American movie! I also saw some people who seemed they were reading newspapers and one was using it as a shade but again not sure if they were homeless! I'm sure this bridge would be luxury housing for homeless people so if they can sleep there good for them! Read more
The Greeks have the exact same mutual feelings towards European banksters and all other European financial institutions that got them in this depression for the past five years.
These a..hole European banksters been building up a "fire wall" (such as injecting liquidity into their banks,...) since Syriza took office, to counter Greece's exit. Will these fire walls work?
Not so, according to Yanis Varoufakis:

Great reporting Esfand.
Did you see any homeless people setting home on the bridge? I am asking because when this bridge was first talked about here some people were saying that it would become a place where all the homeless people in Tehran would gather and live. Although I did mention that homeless people prefer being under bridges not living on them, but Iran might be different. So were there many living there? Read more

PLEASE! Don't expect a miracle from him. He just executes the orders he receives from the revolutionary guards who are the ultimate decision makers even for the King Khamenei.
"Let's not forget that Toudeh for years was in bed with the Akhoond...in fact some of them were known to wear turbans."
Do you understand what you're saying ?
Once you were admiring Tudeh Analysis of the event and now you're saying something against Tudeh analysis.
Here is what you said previously.
An extremely thoughtful and intelligent analysis of the bygone events! Although, Toudeh party was a brain child of Stalin’s expansionist ideas and hegemony! "

Now, you're contradicting yourself.
Neoliberalism at its core is a sworn enemy of democracy and constitutionally opposed to any notion of a popular mandate dictated by peoples votes that will take control out of bankers hands and puts the control in the hand of communities and people most effected by Neoliberal austerity measures.
Per size of the Derivatives Markets as of last year (according to Bank for International Settlements) it stands at a "mere" $1.5 quadrillion, that's one and five plus seventeen zeros.
Something like this $1,500,000,000,000,000,000.
This happens six year after world financial crisis of 2008 and promises that all reckless and irresponsible financial risk taking will be severely curtailed, brought under control and...

The diarrheatic double tongued defenders of IR hard at work.
