Would you go back to Iran?

by Kamangir

You're living outside Iran, some of you for decades, some others have just stablished themselves here and there and some were born outside Iran. Regardless of why you or your families initially left Iran behind, regardless of your personal opinions about the situation in Iran, there's one factor that we all share, and that's we're living outside Iran, either in Europe or North America or elsewhere. There must have been a reason why we left, as people do not leave everything behind and start a new life, just for the sake of it.

Now, for a moment imagine that the Islamic regime of Iran, that has been ruling it for the last three decades, collapses entirely, just as the previous regime did. With their collapse, many of the issues affecting civil liberties and freedom will dissapear, however the results of a damaged and unhealthy economy as well as the huge social gaps will somehow be present for the years to come as the transitional and following governments will try to handle this. On the other hand Iran would be the primary target of international investors as at a later stage tourism will be. There will definitely be cataclismic changes that will affect almost everyone living in the country, specially the private sector. The creation of employement as a result of heavy foreign investment and companies, will need young and skilled workers that the sofisticated and large Iranian middle class will definitely be able to provide. We cannot deny that those will be very promising and interesting times for our country and for all Iranians. But what about the large Iranian community abroad? What about those who have spent more than 30 years living outside Iran? Their children have blended in these societies, but wouldn't a free Iran be so different to them? Without no harsh religious measures against our women and their freedom, would they go back? How would their return and presence affect Iran, in the long run?

What would you do?

Okay, eat your cholo kababs. You also proved my point that you are mooftkhoors.

Education is NOT limited to College. How about HS?

Yeh, others change Iran so you mooftkhoors will come and drain it as your ancestors did.

You saddenly have become daring people!! Why don't you talk against the governments of where you live for stealing from us?

Now it is much freerer than when Revolution started. At that time, they asked us to go and pray... several of us including yours truely did not and won't. Do not make silly assumptions.

You have just proved my point.
Your abusive and clearly uninformed and ignorant
temper tantrum speaks for itself.
You are another good reason for NOT returning.

By the way, my university education was funded
by foreign university scholarships, fellowships
and part-time work at university facilities.


I have no desire at all to

I have no desire at all to return to the land of arab lovers. Why would I want to return to a land where people bend over to worship their anal violaters! They can have it all.

You see it is not just about the IRI. It is about a way of life and their mohammad founded evil religion.

A lot more a change in government has to happen and since that not very realistic I and many others are staying put enjoying chelo kabob and nice lives here while you bend over in Iran.

You and your freedom loving countries are shitting all over the world.

Expat, I assume you are in the U.S. Did you asshole forget the free education you got in Iran? Have you become chicken shit like many Iranians who live there? Do you still call yourself an Iranian? or is it the only when you want to eat Cholo kabab you call yourself Iranian?

We should not expect much from many mooftkhoor and tanbal Iranians who live in the U.S. and Canada.

Expat do you know that Iraqi oil is being pumped without any counter? No wonder you are living a good life and making good salary. Screwing other countries have made it possible to pay you chicken shits good salary to open your big mouth only here.

In youth many of us spent years of lonely exile
and endured great personal hardships to qualify
as Ph.D.s, M.D.s, etc. in prestigious foreign
universities. We were motivated to take our skills
back to Iran to participate in its modernization,
so that Iran might regain its rightful place as a
progressive and prosperous nation.

Our hopes and dreams for Iran's future were shattered when
a progressive tyranny was replaced by a far worse
and totally psychotic, destructive, and regressive

The former tyrants showed themselves to be mere
opportunistic cowards, running away at the first
crisis and challange. The new tyrants proved
themselves to be psychotically destructive

This new tyranny was so intolerably irrational,
repressive and brutal, that many of us preferred
freedom in foreign lands, and left Iran, where
we were neither accepted, nor tolerated.

Again we had to work very hard to rebuild new lives
and careers in foreign countries. But at least we
lived in freedom, and pursued honorable work with
clear consciences.

Iran is no longer the country we once respected
as our homeland. There are no good reasons for
any of us to want to return.
