When in Rome, do as the Romans do!!

When are we Iranians going to learn the ways of the world? In 1992, James Carville put up a sign in Bill Clinton's office which said "its the economy stupid".

From that day, Clinton's election team changed their campaign strategy to focus on the economy and the unknown governor of a backward state such as Arkansas became the 42nd president of the United States. Clinton was (is) smart. He listened to good advice. He learned from others. He was flexible and didn't think that he was the smartest man on the face of the planet.

For the last several years, everytime there is an incident between Iran and the U.S., a whole bunch of us post our opinions on Iranian blogs, a few other Iranians reply and in 4-5 days we forget about the issue and the incident. The latest is this naval incident in the straits of Hurmoz.

In order to be heard in the U.S. and make a big impression, we have to do the same thing the Jews have been doing sinve 1949. 1) Make significant contribution to political leaders in local, State and National offices in the U.S. 2) Start buying and operating main stream media outlets such as news papers, magazines, radio stations, internet bolg sites etc.

I am not proposing that we can buy the New York Times any time soon. But we can start small and aim big. Lets face it, most of us are never returning to Iran (unless something really unexpected happens). So we might as well make it better for us here in the good ol' U.S. of A.

There are a great number of multi millionaire and multi Billionaire Iranians in the U.S. These people, along with a united group of other Iranians can exert a whole lot of influence with $$$ spent wisely.

AAH! But the key is unity. There is no unity of thought or action among us. We are all experts in all fields. We are all political scientists, doctors, engineers, businessmen, stock analysts etc. We rarely unite behind a cause for long term.

Jews are united around a cause. Their cause; which is to control the public opinion about them. More power to them. They have done a great job.

But us Iranians, with all the $$$ in our collective community are still fighting a "retail" media war instead of doing it in a wholesale manner. With a long term plan.

Thats why Joe Blow and the other 75% of the U.S. still has the same image of Iranians as they did in 1980. No doubt there are a lot of stupid Americans out there. But the view of stupid people can also be shaped and changed with time.

Thats what I think. Whats your opinion?

Hey Mr jew lover, stop telling us to copy jews.


the problem is the division between iranians

by Miz-abdol-azim khaneh Ghareeb (not verified) on

our psyche is infected with mistrust of each other.

You say one word against Shah, ass holes rush to club you down, you talk about Islam, they will insult you, you talk about IRI, they will make threats.

Who do we trust? We don't even have a common god among us, let alone leaders.

For now I suggest you send your contributions to my address. I will put them in a savinds account and give you 25% profit every two weeks. With the rest of the money I will buy New York times and Wall Street Journal.

If there is any leftover, I will use it at go go places.

Will you vote for me? Do you trust me?

I am YOU!


You missed the whole point dude
