Who is Exporting Iran's wealth, how and where to?

by Faramarz_Fateh

During the exodus of Iranians in the late 70s and early 80s, an estimated $4.7B biilion was sent out from Iran to U.S., Canada, U.K. and Australia.

This money was sent out by the mostly upper and upper middle class Iranians who saw the writing on the wall and got the hell out before it was too late.

$7.5B was a lot of money and when combined with the brain drain and the U.S. sanctions without a doubt hurt the economy of Iran a great deal.

Fast forward to year 1998. Between '98 and 2007 an estimated $27B of Iran's wealth has been exported to Dubai, UAE, U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Australia.

You might say that the first group of Iranians who fled between '79-'85 were the traitors. What about the people who have been sending $$$$ out now; after 4 "democratic" elections and 4 democratically elected presidents?

Oil has been trading above $36 for the past 7 years. Most of this time above $50. The last 2 years above $60 a barrel. The last 12 months above $80.

As oil hit $80 a bbl, the export of Iran's wealth hit an all time high.

If the Islamic Republic is doing such a great job, how come its supporters are investing in Dubai? In Canada? Everywhere expect Iran?

I'll tell you. Its because they know I.R.I. is doomed. Corruption is rampid. These bastards know their own; they know anyone associated with the I.R.I. cannot be trusted.

Now tell me, who is the traitor. The poeple who left Iran because an unwanted revolution was forced upon them and knew if they stayed, theu'll get F'ed? Or, these Islamic Bastards that are raping Iran on a daily basis and send their $$$ out ?
