Nice photo of a F-5
I'm retired from the USAF and I can appreciate the bravery of the Irainian armed forces.
Hope our countries can work things out.

Liam So long as the US supports extremism like the IRI and the Region as its central Policy against the people of Iran the, US aim is not to work anything out.

Just in case no one informed you akadarya. Iranians are a lot worse off today as an entire Nation than before all the fighting for every inch of Iran. The Problem is clear today, these Iranians were fighting the wrong enemies, we now know exactly who those thieves are and they need to be evicted from power in Iran.

Let me register my very first thumbs down to this comment.
There are vast amount of difference between Iranians regarding past, present and future of Iran but we ought NOT to drag the brave people who sacrificed much to save Iran from a brutal neighboring regime, it is rather cowardly in my opinion to do so.

I know for a fact that many of those who have been beating their chest for Iran and were at a legal age to pick up a gun to defend their mother land against Saddam’s army, simply took the coward way and flee.

Past is past, but I will not sit idle to see verbal abuse against these brave bunch that at the time of need, they stood up and saved Iran.

Next time, think before you put pen to paper

Mehrdad, No one is above Justice. Not A King, A President, A Pope or a Hero. Being these does not give anyone a right to commit crimes of conscience at a later date. What any of the above did after the Iran Iraq war and are doing today can and should be looked at and discussed freely if we want to establish a democratic culture, which you should be supporting.

Manoucher jan,
I could not have agreed more with your statements regarding justice and accountability for all, including the war venterans and nowhere in my comment either here or elsewhere, I have said anything to the contrary.

Amirparviz comment here is a blanket statement about those who fought in Iran-Iraq war, not about the conduct of some (and I emphasize some) after the war.
I am sure I do not need to remind us that many of those who picked up the gun to defend Iran, also protested against the brutality of the IRI or at lease carried on with their lives like the other 65 million or so who are not supporting IRI, yet are passive about it.

The point is,
1- if one is as vatan-dost as some profess to be, what did they do when their country was occupied by Saddam’s force if they were at the legal adult age?
2- If one did not fight to free their motherland, do they at least have the decency to support those who did

I know many folks who one way or another bought their way out of not going to war, this is when a good portion of Iran was occupied in the early part of the war so no controversy about that.
I also know some military folks who clearly were not part of the regime apparatus, put their family as collateral just to be given the chance to go and fight for their country. They were heroes in my book.

I agree with both of your sentiments. Practically the solution is what you say. Reconciliation will require those that aided the IRI to be forgiven anyway, so why drag them in? And APFSM is highlighting another reality, which is many people are not doing their duty to restore their freedom.

A Country can't in a new phase tear itself apart in pursuit of justice because then justice would not be served. Every side will have to let go and forgive the social mess Iran is stuck deeply in. The issue here is Unity which is not easy and will require making difficult sacrifices that serve unity and harmony for various groups otherwise what is the point if fighting creates more polarization, who can run a country like that? Religion in Government is the Problem, let's not forget that is what is the source of the problem it is not as if people are all willingly working with the IRI, the people are with out a choice. Bee-chareh.

Humbly said that view expressed is one of the most stupid ones I have ever come across on this site and that is saying a lot. Though dare I say it is not a surprise to me at all. "these brave bunch that at the time of need, they stood up and saved Iran."

Here is why, While supporters of "unproven democratic systems" and fans of people who betrayed Iran to BP like Mossadeghollah are not famous for knowing the meaning of words, like "dictator" or "collaboration" let alone being able to notice distinction, they exist all the same.

Maybe In your view people who act in defense of Iran at one point can another day willingly let down and betray their country, that is a reality, regardless of whether you choose to look at it or not. What am I taking about? Exactly where Iranians are at.

For 34 years Iranians have been in the Greatest time of Need, against forces which are anti-Iranian and anti-shia Culture. It can easily be argued in a few hours of time that after the Iran Iraq war Iran has been in even more danger under the tyrannical forces of the IRI.

So From both a National and a Religious stand point one asks where are the same Hero's standing up for Iran? That is what is known as a necessary an uncomfortable question. Allow me to answer it for you, since you refuse to think about it. Exactly where those you are calling Hero's are, they are betraying Iranians willingly in collaboration with mullahs standing around in full knowledge Iranians being tortured, hung, raped and robbed. They are receiving pathetic pensions and for the most part have fallen in line under the mullahs tyrannical feet. Where are their attempts to defend Iranians from the tyranny in Iran for 34 years?

The minute the War with Iraq Ended, Not A single Person Wearing the Uniform of IRI or receiving a pension from the IRI is an Iranian Hero, NOT ONE, that pilots of an anti-Iran regime may be one day forgiven because at one point in time they were of service is one thing. However look at the records of all these you call "HERO's", how many are fighting on the side of Iranians in the darkest days of Iranians?

Your Hero's wearing the IRI uniform after the war are so pathetic for the most part they are not even writing or expressing opinions in opposition to the IRI's ongoing crimes on this or any other site. This is not verbal abuse it is expressing what anyone else asking the difficult questions is already observing for 34 years.

Dear Mehrdad,

He is back hallucinating again! But, at least surprisingly enough...for the very first time he did not praise or defend Iran's "Murder Incorporated" style organization like SAVAK, or the Pahlavi Criminal Enterprise. These are great improvements although he should do more research regarding democracy and democratic institutions, and realize that Laissez Faire does not work...and it could create a chaotic situation worse than today!
