11 Questions For Iran

Balatarin

The above is a picture of an extremist fighting in Syria.  Looking at the weapons used in both Libya and Syria by extremist groups against the leaderships I notice they are not ordinary weapons that one can buy from a store.  So I have a few Questions for Iranians.

 

1)  Why has the west taken sides and demonized Gadhafi and Assad?   Their media never gives an honest answer to this or even mentions they are taking sides, why?

 

2)  Why has the west done nothing to expose the extremists fighting them that truly seem far worse for the human rights and democratic aspirations of the people?  Please consider neither Gadhafi nor Assad came to power or ruled this way.

 

3) who supplies such weapons and the money to run them

 

4) why do such massive weapons only fall into the hands of vicious and brutal murdering and raping extremists like the IRI itself or the MeK?

 

5) Why does the west label extremisys as rebels or even democratic material, when everyone knows they are not?

 

6)How come democratic progressives within societies are never helped?

 

7) Does anyone support such actions against the IRI, using other extremists and Anti Iran Sepratist groups? 

 

8) what is really going on for North African and Middle eastern countries, that caused the late shahs team to have to support the idea of a single party Rastakhiz at first, before they could help Iran grow and develop into a multi-party democracy?

 

9) Do Iranians support a process of peaceful united rebellion against the IRI as HRH Reza Pahlavi has suggested and supported, followed by UN monitored elections for a United Iran to choose its path?

 

10) Are Iranians today capable of seeing the wisdom behind a single party system, like Rastakhiz, due to the realities Iranians face with united western opposition to Irans development, peace and human rights, at least Until Iranians can grow and develop enough intellectuals to handle covert western opposition as a society? 

 

11)  Russians have proved they were wise to build slowly towards democracy, since we can't accept the genius of our own people, because we proved we don't have the intellectuals to realize it, like the good choices of shahs team, can we see and accept Russian or Chinese Success and use it as a model?

A UN report has revealed that militants from 29 countries have so far infiltrated into Syria to fight against the Damascus.

What is the likelihood that the covert support being provided to the extremist in particular the Salafists which are the majority of the extremists will be exposed by the so-called Free Media of the so-called Western Democracies and give Cause for the people of the west to demand seek justice for the victims of Syria and the Middle East???? How Likely is it that we see the leaders of the co-operating powers on this policy Obama, Hollande, Netanyahu, Cameron on trial in the Hague??

Well I don't know how to delete these pics... under the edit button you can only add pics not delete.

Look personally I prefer the weapons carried by the one in the last pic. Stunning no, I surrender. Though unless we are prepare to learn from how the dutch, the germans, the brits and japanese transitioned gradually to democracy we won't be seeing pic number 5 in Iran and even mentioning to people its not happening in the next decade, will get you shot and for good reason, who want to give up pic number 5? Not me.

Look unfortunately, a large percentage of Iranians, of the populous is not as cultured or developed as say the russians and so they think they can make democracy occur just by being for it. I know we are living among khars, but they have not learned after 33 years and they are not going to either, for them it is a sticking point they can't get around, it blocks their thinking, tell them the truth and you are the bad messenger they want to shoot. This is the type of Khars Iran has to cope with, so what is the solution?

Look these 11 questions only got 200 views, I'm going to change the pic based on what people want, wait and see what happens on this blog.

By the way the pic I choose will be one that is in harmony with the Iran of Freedom I fantasize living in. : )

America always support their sympathizers. They did in Viet Nam in 1965 till 1975., They did it in South America such as Chili in 1973. Afghanistan such as Hafizoallh Amin in 1980. President Dawood in 70's.. In Pakistan Zia al haq in 70's.Full support for Kuwait, Saudi Arabia. They also supported opponent of Ghaddafi not long time ago. The head of the opposition against Ghaddafi was trained by C.I.A. This fact has been well established and well documented. U.S supported many other countries around the world who were pro America such as Kuwait when it was occupied by Saddam forces back in 90's. U.S soldiers went there and liberated Kuwait from the hands of Saddam's soldiers. They left the country after Iraqi soldiers were kicked out of Kuwait.
On the othe hand, USSR also support their sympathizers such as Hush e min in Viet Nam in 60's and 70's, Hafez Asad during his presidency in Syria. Soviet supported him all his time. Soviet still supporting his son Bashar- al Asad. Ghaddafi in Lybia. Algeria after their independency from France in 60's till today. Tudeh party in Iran since it's establishment. Full support of Castro in Cuba till today, Cuban soldiers in Angola, Allendeh in Chili in 70's.
China also support their sympathizers such as President Anwar Khajeh in Albania. Full support of Dr. George Habbash the head of the Palestinins resistance organization in Palestine back in 70's. China also supported Moeist groups in Iran such as Paykar organization in late 70's and Komoleh in Kurdestan.
Each country support their sympathizers inside that country. NO magic. Common sense.

Your view is not Based on Understanding, it is highly ignorant view in my mind. Instead of disagree with you on a broad scale, I'll keep it focused on Iran.

The USA supported the IRI and Khomeini, who did not ever in any of his works sympathize with the USA.

The USA set up and betrayed a Leader that was their true friend the Late Shah of Iran. It still lies about him being a Dictator and a megalomaniac and justifies its betrayal of him for Khomeini.

What are your thoughts on this Shirzadeghan?

Shirzadegan

Siavash

It is common knowledge that U.S was close friend of late shah of Iran. Iran was the most pro western establishment in the region. Similarly, Mobarak in Egypt was the allian of the U.S till he was toppled. President Dawood was also close allian of the U.S till Taraki from democratic party took power. Ben Laden was also good friend of U.S till he turned against U.S interest. All these events have been well documented. I don't understand where the problem is coming from?
BTW, U.S foreign policy is different from some cheap L.A magazines who portrays late shah of Iran as dictator. We should distinguish between U.S foreign policy from cheap L.A magazine. .Anybody can say anything.That doesn't mean it is U.S foreign policy. I am sure General Hyser tried his best to help late shah of Iran during his time. The suggestion of army to be neutral was one of his good faith accomplishment. I still believe it was good policy because shah remained in the mind of million Iranians as a democratic leader who didn't want his people get killed. Again everybody knows that U.S administration and American people hated Khomaini and his supporters, especially after mullahs took hostages in Iran. They just hated anything about being Iranian as a result of hostage taken. That is common knowledge. The educated Americans still regard shah of iran as a good friend and good allian of U.S in the Middle East.

Shirzadeghan I am not talking about the friendship, when it was infact a friendship, but the change of course and the betrayal of the pact they had with Iran. This new blog was inspired by you, watch the video and think http://iranian.com/posts/view/post/2663 the shah never turned against the USA like Bin Laden, he was true friend, when Nixon asked him to raise oil prices (which were all paid in US dollars) to help strenghtne the dollar, the USA used this to attack the Shah and say he was the dictator of Oil, yet he was risking his neck for the USA and squeezing the Russians by doing this.

US foreign policy is in the hands of the foreign Secretary and the CIA guides the Main Stream Media from Time, to all the major Networks to make sure they are making the job of the US secretary of state easier to execute. Time Magazine is no LA magazine, it was calling the Shah a despot, Amnesty International was lying about Savak and Tortures, most of the major daily papers were following the lead, what are you talking about???????

On: "The educated Americans still regard shah of iran as a good friend and good allian of U.S in the Middle East."

So what?
Do you get what both Republicans and Democrats have done towards Iranians and the late Shah?

Shirzadegan

please take a look at this issue of time magazine about mossadegh.
http://www.writersviews.com/article-dr-mossadegh.php
As we all know U.S foreign policy did NOT support Mossadegh, but time magazine regarded him as a Man of the year. Time magazine is highly speaking of Mossadegh, but U.S foreign policy was not pro mossadegh.

In 1951 US policy was in support of Mossadegh, after he betrayed the late shah and closed parliament, with the support of the UK/France and Holland against the shah the US govt turned on him to protect its own interests.

So what is your point?

Shirzadegan

My point is what American magazines are writing is NOT necessary reflect U.S foreign policy. Magazines are opinions of different writers such as you and me without any authority to make a U.S foreign policy.

You are wrong about this, either because you did not work for the cia at a senior position (highly likely) or because you do (highly unlikely). Articles are put in to the main stream media to pursue certain policies and certain points of view that media focuses on is picked y editors that are picked by the cia. The system works this way to serve US national Interests and give the US government the power of the media on its side against other countries. What Russia today focuses on and what the BBC focus on serve their respective countries and this is the same in IRI today. It is embarrassing you are not aware of this.

When Russia responded strongly to Georgia conflict, it was not just points of view put out by the US media, but all focus of articles like a machine were made up to support US foreign Policy and articles solely to serve USA Interests were swamped on the people.

You are so wrong on this subject and it is not your fault, you just don't have anyone to explain how these simple things of how countries operate (or how their media's work for their own interests).

The point is I just gave you was a link to an interview, with Farah saying she was kept hostage on tarmac in portugal by USA that had agreed to give shah to a latin american country to give to khomeini in exchange for hostage citizens and Carter personally tried to pressure Sadat to give up his offer to the Shah to stay in egypt, the queen went out of her way to explain as tactfully as possible and likely at danger to her own life and her sons life, how US journalists were sent to Egypt to stir up disapproval among people to pressure and force Sadat to change his mind, and how this all blew up in their face although in happened in secret and after all this, I still say you are entitled to stick to your own opinion, even if it is the opposite of logic and upon careful reflection of the evidence is not true.

NO, Zia (The interviewer) was trying to give a "Dai Jan Napolean flavor" to his interview by posing suspicious questions to our dear Shahbanu, as if U.S was conspirator against late shah. Surprisingly, our dear shahbanu subtly denied that conspiracy theory.
Something you must always remember is the fact that priority policy for U.S goverment is to protect the lives and interest of American people. That is their national policy.You probably didn't know that. Ask anyone they will explain for you.
Americans are first. U.S government never sacrifice live or interest of Americans for any allies. NOWAY. Americans interest and American lives are first priority.
In those days, U.S was trying to get their people back to America safe and as soon as possible. They did whatever they could to return hostages back to America. The only reason they didn't arrest shah to submit him to ruling mullahs because U.S government afraid of their other allies such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait Jordan......etc. They didn't want to give that signal to their allies that U.S is not supporting their friends when they are in danger , otherwise, they would have arrested shah and return him back to Iran for trail in exchange for American hostages to be released, but U.S didn't do it because of the reason I mentioned.

This is exactly to say :
Do you get what both Republicans and Democrats have done toward Bautista in Cuba? or Bao in Viet Nam? These people were toppled by their own people, not by U.S. Batista in Cuba and Bao in Viet Nam were pro America, not against America. U.S supported them till the end. Castro came to power after Bautista and he was was against America. U.S tried to save Bautista till the end. The same scenario was in Egypt. U.S tried to save Mobarak, but she couldn't. When the nation wrongly or rightly decide to overthrown their establishment, no outside forces can prevent any nation wishes.

What you read in U.S magazine is NOT necessary express view of the U.S administraion. You and I can have magazine tomorrow and claim that Stalin, or Khomaini were angels. If you don't believe me, let's try.

amirparvizforsecularmonarchy

amirparvizforsecularmonarchy I Love Waterfalls and Find One of the most humorous things in the world; is the notion that Americans are a greater force for good & more civilized than Nazi's, Mullahs and Communists.

Shirzadegan, what you read in the main stream media is the end result of US politics, it is a tool to get the american people to accept the policy of the US govt and is always in harmony with the US govts actions.

On your review of historical facts, US did not support Bautista till the end, US betrayed the Cubans who tried to take back Cuba from Castro, It sent them in to the bay of pigs to wipe out the anti-castro cubans and gave them no support, this is why castro stayed for the last 50 years, this is what the USA wanted and benefited from in a big way.

I see you have very little knowledge of political science, can you not see how this would be a detriment to you when you are discussing political history, without even knowing what happened and why?

Shirzadegan

Siavash

NO,the Castro didn't stay in power because U.S wanted. He stayed in power for 50 years because of people's revolution and because of wishes of Cuban people. It has nothing to do with U.S.
U.S is not communist country. U.S has never pro-communists and never supported communism. Russia was communist country and Russia was supporting communists, NOT America.
Again, that is common sense. NO magic.

amirparvizforsecularmonarchy

amirparvizforsecularmonarchy I Love Waterfalls and Find One of the most humorous things in the world; is the notion that Americans are a greater force for good & more civilized than Nazi's, Mullahs and Communists.

Castro was and is a huge asset to the USA in keeping a nation weak and backwards, without Castro Florida would not have enjoyed the growth it has economically due to competition from Cuba. Millions of people had to be displaced to make this happen and most Cubans of knowledge know the USA betrayed them in the Bay of Pigs incident. The support that comes from terror, armed force and mismanagement of a country is not so strong. A single air craft carrier battle group could easily over come it, however you seem to be so clueless with politics its better to leave it there. Because if we speak any more I am going to hear things like, the USA and Nato won in Libya because the people mostly hated Ghadafi (which is not true). If USA did to Cuba, what it did to Libya, Cuba would be free much easier. They essentially wiped out the entire nationally army of an oil rich country and backed many militia's to come in and secure the ground afterwards.

Shirzadegan

Siavash

Cuba is weak and backward because communism didn't work in there, nor did it work in any other socialist country. Communist is bankcrupt ideology which has no place in 21 century.
Yes, U.S and N.A.T.O won because the people of Lybia were unhappy with 40 years dictatorship of Ghadafi. It was people of Lybia who were unhappy, NOT U.S foreign policy makers. U.S didn't like Ghadafi since day 1 he came to power, but she couldn't do anything about it.
Similarly it was people of Iran who brought shah back to crown in 1953, NOT America.
Similarly it is people of Iran who will choose crown Reza Pahlavi as a Reza shah II, NOT U.S foreign policy makers.
People make thier own destiny. Outside forces is not determing factor.
U.S support their sympathizers, as Russia support their sympathizers.
Even ruling Mullahs in Iran support their own sympathizers such as Asad in Syria or HeZbollah, Jihad Islamic in Lebanon. That is common sense.

"Dai Jan Napolean syndrome" is what our people are suffering. Because Iran has always been interfered by outside powers since Shah Abbas the Great, our people developed Dai Jan Napolean syndrome. We live in 21 centruy which is the time of internet and information processing, not colonial time or slaverly time.
Some people still give so much weight to C.I.A and U.S policy makers as if they're able to change any government they want or do whatever they wish.
C.I.A with all it's informats and intelligent, after 60 years of it's establishment couldn't even detect that 20 bare feet arab desert got on the plane and hit the twin towers in NYC in 2001.

I think he was realistic, cautious, and planned his life very carefully, leaving nothing to chance and handling situations pragmatically. He was very objective and thought like a surgeon so he never really got caught into traps and illusions, through out his entire career. The USA made a huge mistake with him and since he made sure they had skin in the deal they surely feel it today as they are declining and unable to handle their own policy. His acts with reporters in interviews was more to see and test reactions of other leaders etc so he could make the best decisions available to him.

Honestly the best on him is not published yet. Its best to get to know the people who worked for him (non military) and saw him at least over 50 hours a year for their work and speak with them. If they are alive they are in their 90's now and live in europe.

I met with this gentleman, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farhang_Mehr and others to get an understanding of the late shah.

It's always good to see some thought going on that is independent of anti-intellectual works created by the main stream media and its talking heads, which are intentionally misleading Iranian intellectuals to form anti-ntellectuals that will mislead the people of Iran like they did in 1979, from CNN, Fox, MSNBC, BBC, RT.

At least the British protege's the Mullahs proved that Iran is in the worst hands with mullahs in power and they not only do not work for Iran, but serve the Wests Interests at the expense of the people of Iran.

Who can forgive the Muslims of Iran who did the unforgivable act of involving themselves in Politics and actively helped to misrepresented the Pahlavi's in order to harm Iranians.

That our Democrats were deceived is not an issue, that so many are still being deceived is what is surprising and needs to be resolved, but HOW?????????? Their stupidity at this point in the game is really surprising.

How shameful that some Iranians think so little of Iran and put their own personal agendas ahead of Iran, that they still pursue the lies LIKE Mossadegh was Iran's first democratically elected prime minister and that it was solely the USA/UK that removed him.

Common, If Mossadegh the user of absolute power and Iran was such a cake walk how come they can't do it in all the other countries of smaller size? Isn't it time to stop lying to the people of Iran on their own history???? The Late shah had the full support of the clergy, the land owners and the military, he didn't even need the USA, except that the Brits were fully supporting Mossadegh, so to win the peace afterwards he needed a power stronger than them to ally with to overcome the British Nowkar and this alliance thought up by the shahs team was what made Iran a Free and Independent power from 1953 to 1979, by kicking head first the Brits out of Iran, by outsmarting their treasonous protege Mossadegh.

No country, especially a rentier state like Iran, can transition immediately to a democracy. It will be a flawed and chaotic one like Iraq that will eventually bring to power a president for life. The one-party system was good- the underlying logic is sound, that the country must first economically and militarily improve until it becomes a regional power. With economic and strategic threat nullified, there will be no forces to drive the country into authoritarian rule and democracy can be achieved. But the reality is, no oil rich state can achieve that, as long as oil remains the lifeblood of minor powers that superpowers seek to suppress.

The Islamic republic is seduced itself into thinking that its a "regional power". As you said, a rentier state can never have any tangible and concrete influence in any meaningful way to proclaim such delusion. Economic power is directly tied to Iran's independent and sovereignty. Islamic republic economic policies are a danger to its national security and its future geographical integrity. Funding terrorist groups and bribing arab mercenaries will never 'diversify' or strengthen Iran's economy to give Iran any independence or leverage when faced with geopolitical challenges.

It's a sad reality but Iran is and until oil runs out, will always be in the hands of foreign powers. The way the regime treats minorities is even worse. I bet you in time the Kurds and Arabs will separate, and so will the Baluchis. It serves the regime in the short term to ignite sectarian war because it rallies the majority Persians and to an extent Azeris around the regime. I guarantee you Kurdistan will become an independent state by 2030, if not sooner.

If there is a tangible hope for democracy after IRI is removed, separation will not be in the interest of Iranian minorities, and the country can be held together. The root of this tragedy and horror is that Iranians are escaping responsibilities and in some visceral level expect that the Islamic menace could be waded after IRI time limit expires. Time is not on their side.

Who knows what will happen with the varying states, on irans side right now as far as not disintegrating is the UN and Russia/China/EU only the USA/Israel openly are pushing for IRI break up. They are on a massive decline as a result and their own future is uncertain, because no one really knows where the USA will be in 10 years time with no growth. Can it hold its position as Japan did or will it collapse as the UK did. No one really knows how the cards will land for the next few years, its why any gamble now by any one is a true gamble.

China is a Western ally, my friend. Look at their history since Nixon. The only one on Iran's side is Russia, who is a lone dog in a quixotic battle to become a superpower again. China's economy is bound by the waist to America, and their geography makes it impossible for them to become a major world player. China uses Iran as a bargaining chip for the US, but their main ally is the US. If push came to shove, China would forget about Iran and do nothing, and Russia will wail until it becomes clear they are losing and change tracks, similar to Syria. The EU would benefit from an independent Kurdistan, as would any of Iran's first-world clients.

I hope Iran stays whole, but to me at least Kurdistan is a definite inevitability. The Kurds' ultimate fate lies in Turkey, where I think a deal will be made. There must be something in it for Turkey because they have aided Kurdish autonomy in Iraq and Syria, while suppressing autonomy in their own turf. I think they believe it will end in autonomy only, but anyone with political knowledge knows that autonomy will lead to unification of the zones and finally, secession.

China has less than zero trust for the USA.

The USA can be said to be the only power in the world that is essentially at war with everyone and has no friends. When push comes to shove china goes with Russia because it has to for its own sake. Geographically they are going to zero in On Iran once the Chinese can stand up to the USA in a military situation not in the next decade or so though and that can be either the most beautiful thing or the most ugly depending on factors out of Iran's hands until Iran can stand up on its own again.
