You are correct and I agree that Iranians are constantly assaulting each other, love to hit each other from behind. I don't see any unity among our fellow countryman. This problem was with us before the revolution. Still we are repeating the same mistake. For some reason we don't want to learn from history.

Why you say to me : Don't hold back, let them out!

You are being ridiculous.

It is obvious that if I have any further question, I won't shy away, I will ask.

You look like that same bad child in the car who hides behind his father and  screams : nafas kesh!

Give me a break guys, would you?

Good luck!

Yeah, attack Iran & US retirement age goes to 85!

by Disenchanted on

 

         Considering life expectancy is around 80 somethin in US, that would solve the social security short fall problem! :-)

       Genius..huh!

        All the pensions and retirement benefits are being cut thanks to GWB adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan! Lets continue on that path! Pretty soon Zimbabwe airports looks more modern than San Francisco! Yeah...!

   Here is oocupy Boston against war and sanctions!

What's the next question Souri?

Don't hold back, let them out.

 

This reminds of the joke that a little boy kept asking his father who was driving, "What is this dad? What is that dad?" and his father kept saying, "I don't know son. I don't know that one either."

Finally the mother got mad and told the kid, "Be quiet, you are not letting your dad drive and are going to cause an accident."

To which the father said, "Don't shout at the kid. Let him ask questions so he can learn something!"


Jeesh Daram

We agree that we disagree 100%

by Jeesh Daram on

One thing is certain, that the United States and its team of war mongers take certain calculating measures against Iran knowing that there is absolutely no unity, coordination, agreement, coalition, united voice or anything even close to it among the Iranians abroad.  The same Iranians that are turning the wheels of industries in different corners of the world continue to attack each other, smear zardaloo anak on each other’s face and hope for the best that somehow foreign forces install a situation in Iran that would provide them the basic comfort during their future visits to Iran. This dream will be delivered in a silver platter if you just make sure to continue assaulting each other.  Don’t we all miss those days (five years ago) when Iranian.com had no ban on four-letter words and I recall there was a guy called Janab Sarhang and the kind of language he used on non-monarchists. We have not achieved anything since; we are just being monitored better.

Targeted sanctions work and prevent Wars

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

As in case of South Africa, where airtight sanctions on all exports from south africa (Diamond being their biggest mineral export as Oil for Iran), military, technology, finance, diplomatic and even south africa was barred from   attending sports event. These sanctions eventually prevented a major, bloody civil war and military intervention into S. Africa, leading to black majority rule.

The current sanctions on Islamist regime are no where near S. African sanctions. The next step should be to kick out all the Iranian "diplomats" and their fak o famil and their lobbies back to where they come from.

by Souri on

Would you please have the kindness to explain WHY you don't share my opinion as : Any" sanction hurting the lower layers.?

Okay, I should have been more precise : Any santion of this kind, at this level, will hurt the lower layers of a nation before hitting its government.

Do you agree or not?

this is all like a "makkareh" show

If they were serious about it  with ONE order only

could send ALL IRR DIPLOMATS back to Iran with in 48 HRS.

NO sanction or military confrontation is needed.

My comment was directed at Divaneh's comment, "This" sanction is going too far. As I stated, "This" sanction has provisions to deal with his concerns.

Your comment is about "Any" sanction hurting the lower layers. That is an opinion that I do not share. So let's just leave it at that.

The Saddam era sanctions were very crude and provided oil funds to Saddam to purchase food and medicine. He bought arms instead and conveniently blamed the west.


Souri

Can anybody read Divaneh's comment?

by Souri on

"Remember how Iraqi children died from the lack of basic medicines when
similar sanctions were imposed on Iraq. It did not achieve anything but
misery for Iraqi people."

At least remember the past ! What happened to Iraq?

 Any sanction, targets first and farmost the lower layers of the society, not the gornment.

Then read Faramarz's precise and accurate response, and then try to understand it using the grey matter betwen your ears.

They all want to talk, only! Nobody's listening.

by Faramarz on

Under these new sanctions the Treasury Department is authorized to issue licenses on a case by case basis. So the import of food and medicine or any transaction "that advances US interests" will go on as usual.

divaneh

This is going too far

by divaneh on

This sanction targets the people of Iran and the lower layers of the society. You can see from the video that it can stop Iran from obtaining even medicine. I am fully against any such sanction that bans food and medicine exchange with Iran. Remember how Iraqi children died from the lack of basic medicines when similar sanctions were imposed on Iraq. It did not achieve anything but misery for Iraqi people. I think it is the duty of the Iranian dispora to try to consult governments for measures in this sanction to allow supply of food and medicine to Iran. I will write to my own MP in this regard.


Roozbeh_Gilani

Good!

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

Airtight , yet targetted sanctions of all Islamist regime's means of financing it's reign of terror, plunder and murder upon Iranian people, that is it's oil export and banking system,  is the way to go. We, People of Iran will take care of the Fascist regime ourselves. That is our "undeniable Right".......

Sanctions Better Than Bombing!

Sanctions will help bring about regime's collapse more quickly. A war will only prolong its existence
