Nice pictures.... nice country.... my respect.

As a person who lived among several Iranian tribes such as Ghashghaee’s that are shown in these pictures, one could see similar pictures before and after IRI. Since everything gets political among Iranians, and many bogus IC members attack members who use their real names, I do want to start another useless discussion. Those who have chosen to live in Iran and/or give what they have for it have my respect.


Noticeable how much Iranians have regressed.

Hard to believe after viewing these pictures that the Shahs team raised
Iran from one of the poorest nations, which Iran is once again, to one of the
worlds wealthiest nations.  Stunning really, Considering where most Iranians were once and where most Iranians are now/today.  Once the ninth wealthiest country on earth and according to the world bank on its way
to being the fourth largest world economy within less than a decade.  And so easily sent back
to the 11th century.... At the hands of those who supposedly wanted good for
Iran and wanted more power sharing.  The oil wealth the hezbollahi's
have mismanaged for the last 33 years is staggering isn't it?  The Shahs team
excellently made use of the comparatively smaller oil wealth they
managed for the people of Iran. Bichareh-ha, Badbakhtishoon be-atiyeh
boodaneh, enshallah yad begiran engadr be Akhoond va Antellectual beharf
nakonand va barayeh khodeshoon fekr konand barayeh Iran, like the iranians serving with the shah did. Hindsight is 20/20 of course and in our case it
shows us what the hunger for greed produces, in contrast to a patriotic hunger for
freedom, like we enjoyed with the late Shah and his team.  Roohesh Shad. 

My wish is
that someday Iranians can once again enjoy the level of development,
peace, progress and human rights the shahs team delivered for Iranians.
For me all Iranians deserve the best, regardless of the stupidity of
