The Global Menace that is (Islamic) Iran

Balatarin

Recently a post by Nilou-jan, designed, I guess to increase traffic and much appreciated ad revenues for this site (Ghorboonesh beram elahi) to take us off topic by dangling the always tantalizingly delicious discussion of Israel and the Palestinians, only got me automatically thinking more about this version of Iran, that I strongly object to.

 

Whenever an Iranian tries to trick me into forgetting about Iran by getting us to complain about the US and Israel, or what I guess we should just call USrael, I remind myself to think about Iran instead. It's not because I love USrael. I just don't want to fall for the trick. 

 

Some of you have misunderstood me to be an Iran hater when I point out Iran's many flaws. Please believe me, I am no such thing. But I am a This version of Iran hater. Only because I got a small glimpse of what Iran could be, when I was living in Iran under what I will admit was a very short period of sunshine, when political freedom was about as high as it has ever been (although not that much), and no one really bothered you (not that much), and we were about as free as we have ever been (again, not that much). Granted as much as was possible under a Shah. Granted, it did not last long. But I caught a very brief glimpse of what Iran could have become. I am sure many of you did too.

 

I am also not saying the Shah was an ideal ruler either. Of course you cannot be a good ruler, when you are an absolute one. Current case in point. But there was a period, I'm going to say 1975-1977-ish when I sort of felt that Iran felt free. Girls wore what they wanted. Iranian girls wore short skirts and backless halter tops. Boys wore beards and long flared out hair because the religion then was the Bee Gees. Everyone drank, and smoked, and danced, and danced, and danced. Disco 2000 at the end of Mirdamad was THE place to hang out. You could hang out then. Unlike today. The Bowling club at the top end of Shemiran, was THE place to go see the latest movies. El Chicos had THE best Mexican food I have eaten. Anywhere! Business flourished. Iran Air flew everywhere. Either you worked for the government on country-changing projects, or you worked for one of the many foreign companies on huge projects like the Ekbatan apartment complexes built by none other than the Empire State building company. Yes, that Empire State building company! I am even pretty sure that several Jews were involved! 

 

I know, it sounds like a fairy tale. Sometimes I don't believe I lived through it.

 

Again, I'm not wistfully dreaming of the past, I am just illustrating that it is possible for Iran to be a secular thriving fun country again, with basic freedoms, discos, and a government that not only laissez the faire, the bon temps rouler too! Because it happened once! So I will argue, it could happen again. And I think I am not alone in this argument.

 

The chance at it again, is what I have set as my current ideal minimum standard of what I am willing to accept as "Iran". And you should set this standard as yours too. We can discuss exactly what details of an ideal Iran should be later, once we are free to do so, but for now at least, the one thing we can (and absolutely must) ALL agree on is that THIS version of Iran is certainly not it.

 

The next thing to agree on is that there is NO reason why Iran should be like THIS. Freedom is in fact free! You just have to have the collective resolve, and courage to realize it, and then take it! Something we most certainly did not do in 2009.

 

But enough about my dream state of an ideal homeland.

 

Recently we have all read about the ISIS Sunni rebels fighting in Syria against Assad, deciding to come and get some or all of Iraq. The ease by which ISIS has gained territory has stunned the world. Within one week, ISIS has now captured almost half of Iraq and Syria, robbing every bank along the way, garnering close to $500 Million in cash and gold. With a half a Billion dollars folks, today you can buy the rest of whatever army and weapons that you need to pretty much do anything you would ever want to do. At Costco.

 

No one has been more disappointed and distraught than the US who looks like the fool, having declared Iraq enough of a success story to justify removing all remaining American forces from Iraq just this year. I order to lose their paperwork at the VA. Now it seems the US has to possibly send what is left of it's PTSD-ridden military back in again, provide air support, or various small team special forces. Which is always fun.

 

So desperate is the US embarrassment in all of this now, that some have even suggested possibly working together with Iran to combat ISIS. Until someone else started to think about the consequences of that. Then someone totally else began to piece together the realities of the past year, and then the previous 6 years, and then everyone pretty much looked at each other in awe as they suddenly discovered what (and who) the real cause of all this regional turmoil was.

 

Iran.

 

Again, I don't mean the good ideal Iran I painted for you earlier. That one is safely tucked away under our thick eyebrows in our minds eyes, to be brought out on another special day. I mean this nasty duplicitous version of Iran. Islamic Iran.

 

Here's the facts.

 

When everyone in the free world was against Assad, after watching him butcher thousands of Syrians, Iran supported Assad. Assad is an Alouite Syrian, which is a version of Shiite. Alouites and assorted Shiites make up barely 15% of Syria. The rest are mostly Sunni 60% and assorted non-Shiites. Assad has made sure that the Alouites were in charge of all the coolest aspects of Syrian life. Therefore most of the folks fighting Assad's illegitimate rule, are not Shiite. Or Sunni.

 

Iran has iranically, imposed its Imperialist motives on all of Syria now, by supporting a fellow Shiite, Assad. In almost every brutal way possible, providing not only Billions of dollars taken at the worst possible time from the mouths of apparently ordinary Iranian children with lots of cancer to isotope with, while the entire country is suffering under the US sanctions. Under all this fake humanitarian claim, Iran can still somehow afford to fight and direct a full proxy war in Syria against fellow Moslems, albeit Sunnis. 

 

But apparently Iran can afford much more than just that…

 

More facts.

 

Nouri Al Maleki was George Bush's virtually hand selected successor to Rumsfeld's previous hand selected successor, Saddam Hussein. Unlike Syria, Iraq is about 60% Shiite. Al Maleki is not just a Shiite. But a Shiite that HATES America. As much as Al Maleki hates the US, he apparently LOVES Iran more. He lived in Tehran at the pleasure of the Mollahs, during most of the Iran-Iraq war.  And cursed America for on average the entire 6-8 years. Why George Bush would choose such an obvious Manchurian Candidate to puppet up for display and proof of an American job well done, can only be explained as the sequel to "You're doing a Helluva job Brownie!". A different Brownie.

 

No surprise then that as Iran's puppet, pretending to be the US puppet installed dictator of a newly re-built not so loyal to US nation, Al Maleki promptly worked to get the US out of Iraq as quickly as possible, so Iran could move the rest of it's stuff in, as well as pogrom virtually all of Iraq's infrastructure establishment and de-louse it from any Sunni scent.

 

And now ISIS has a problem with all of that. And begs to differ. That is why you now hear rumor statements like "…ISIS intends to rule the region like a Caliphate under a harsh version of Sharia law…" That is Sunni-speak for "Sunni Claws is coming to town…"

 

All of this turmoil now. All of it has been caused directly by Iran's current and ongoing interference, what I will call Iranian Imperialism.

 

I know that the obvious gut wrenching reaction by many of you will be to run away from this ugly reality, by once again pointing fingers at the US and Brits and the Sky and so on, and build complicated excel charts and graphs with stats comparing US Imperialism, and all the usual crap that reality-deniers use to deflect any wrong doing by Iran.

 

But Iran has most certainly done wrong now. Iran is responsible now for the over 100,000 Syrian people killed by Assad doing Iran's bidding, directly on Iran's payroll. Iraq has seen increased violence as a result of Al Maleki's Putsch directed by Iran, and now will undoubtedly see more violence, possibly the entire downfall of the current software version of Iraq, as a result. 

 

This is entirely unreasonable blood, and absolutely unnecessary blood, and possibly long and unending blood, that is most definitely, and most certainly on Iran's hands now.

 

Rouhani immediately called on Iranian volunteers to join up to fight ISIS exclaiming his truest intentions yet, "Regarding the holy Shia shrines in Karbala, Najaf, Khadhimiya and Samarra, we announce to the killers and terrorists that the big Iranian nation will not hesitate to protect holy shrines…"

 

Or that Iran is about to go to war with ISIS now.

 

The big fear we Free Iranians have been continuously fed to believe by interlopers and self-entitled US foreign policy watchdogs (emphasis on the dog), and was used to silence any and all of our objections against Iran, was the supposed fear of a "War with Iran" by the US and Israel.

 

But apparently and now it seems what we should have really all been worried about was an increasingly Imperialist and regional bully version of "Iran with War". Because folks, like it or not, believe it or not, deny it or not, pretend to deflect it or not, Iran most certainly has one now.

 

Which is actually good news for this Iranian government. Nothing but nothing makes controlling the population easier than the fear that a war provides.

 

Who knows, maybe Khamenei will edit the Constitution one more time, just like he did in 1989, during the last Iran-Iraq war!

Mr. Bahmani:

“Some of you have misunderstood me to be an Iran hater when I point out Iran's many flaws.”

On the contrary. I think you are an Iran lover.
What I don’t understand is why a writer like you who spends inordinate amount of time and so passionately to point out Iran’s many flaws time after time would prefer the convenience a keyboard offers to demean, degrade and demonize Iran, just like a coward, rather than going to former Homeland and taking a forefront lead on path towards correcting those flaws you incessantly write about no matter what lethal fate might await you.
Does cognitive dissonance ring any bell here.

Faramarz Fathi

BehrouzBahmani

Behrouz Bahmani if you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with.

Really? You don;t understand? (And I thought you were smart!)

The answer to your question is simple. (Now read the next sentence very carefully, use a dictionary if you need one)

I am not STUPID.

Going to Iran after I have mouthed off like this, as you suggest, might be lethal. Although I doubt it. Iran doesn't care about me, or you. Or what I say in English. Or whether you apologize for Iran and delivering their threat for them. YOU did threaten me just now, didn't you? Not a problem. I stopped worrying about apologists like you years ago.

Incidentally, how much does IRI threat delivery pay these days? Or are you a unwitting and unpaid volunteer? Because they are paying people like you. So get in line before the cash runs out. You may need to replace a few of your prayer beads.

Although even if I could afford the time off from work, and the flight and pocket money while there, I am not in any sort of financial position to be able to go to Iran, just so we can prove you right, that I would be arrested, or at least detained.

But keep in mind the whole point of objection, or at least my plan, is to continuously get away with it. Not to get caught!

Finally, since I think you meant it as an insult, Cognitive Dissonance is "the excessive mental stress and discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time."

That is a correct diagnosis of me. No insult taken whatsoever. I might even be proud of it.

At once I hate what Iran is, while at the same time, I happen to love Iran.

So, yeah.

What do you stand for? Oh wait! You aren't actually one of those who is PROUD of Iran are you?

Awesome! I have always wanted to meet one of you and see how you explain that!

Go ahead. Explain it.

No you are not stupid but certainly a coward. Just like lots of expatriates as well as some in Iran too who with little or zero contributions to the Motherland expect the best and most in return.
I was one too till I realized those of us who delivered the ultimate insult to the Motherland and renounced our citizenships by moving abroad we forfeited our rights to comment, compliment or criticize Iran or the Iranian government for that matter and hence I refrained from any criticisms of Iranian government even though I understand how difficult it can be for some.

“Or whether you apologize for Iran and delivering their threat for them. YOU did threaten me just now, didn't you? Not a problem. I stopped worrying about apologists like you years ago.

You continue to impress me Mr. Bahmani.

“Although even if I could afford the time off from work, and the flight and pocket money while there, I am not in any sort of financial position to be able to go to Iran, just so we can prove you right, that I would be arrested, or at least detained.

Your priorities and your prerogatives.

So, yeah.”

No insult or insults there just a statement of fact.


“What do you stand for? Oh wait! You aren't actually one of those who is PROUD of Iran are you?”

I am an expatriate who has refrained from calling himself an Iranian for certain beliefs and reasons, but evidently beyond your comprehension capacity and capability, no offense intended,.

To be a national born or holding a Brown cover passport does not necessarily makes one an Iranian.
The required criteria, I have learned, are far more rigid. Iran is not an ordinary country. It has a grand history as well as an unmatched culture.
Its citizen are embodied with particular obligations.


“Awesome! I have always wanted to meet one of you and see how you explain that!

Go ahead. Explain it.”

Comprehension with a constrained mind can be challenging Mr. Bahmani. Nevertheless, I remain hopeful.

BehrouzBahmani

Behrouz Bahmani if you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with.

Actually Iran has now become an EXTRA-ordinary country. It has thanks to this government, not only forgotten it's past and history, but has drifted farther off course by feigning an Arabicized culture, enforced by the gun, by power mongers who aren't even Iranian citizens! PLease look up the citizenship and birth of the top 20 Iranians in charge of your every breath, and tell me they are Iranians and not Iraqis.

Clearly, I am not a constrained mind. So you're a chicken. You don't get to get off that easily by calling Iran: Complicated. And me too dumb to get it.

So here;s another chance, go ahead, enlighten me. Tell me how Iran is misunderstood, or whatever you think is so complex, I can't understand it.

I'll prime the pump by saying, if you do, and can convince me, I'll admit it, agree with you, and change my entire tone.

However, at this time, frankly, respectfully, I cannot see how you or anyone could EVER defend this system over the many others that are available to us as a free people to choose, as the best way to govern our selves.

When I chip at the system, it's because it is highly flawed, and insists that it is perfect. By force. By the gun. By the threat of death.

But you already know all of this. Because you are smart. Clearly.

There's just something about you, something that is obviously holding you back, that makes you avoid the obvious declaration people like me make.

Of course I am a coward. But I am a smart coward. A stupid coward would move back home, and get killed in 5 minutes. Raped in 4. beaten in 3. Arrested without warrant in 1.

Purely for talking smack.

Nice government.

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.

Islam in Power in Iran is a great menace to the people of Iran above all and if it remains much longer then you will see it as a menace to the world. But those who helped Islam come to power in Iran in the name of democracy and human rights which has never materialized, forces like the USA, UK, France and Israel which all in their words oppose the IRI while they help keep and secure the IRI in power and make the job of the opposition to the IRI as difficult as possible. The opposition to the IRI are the majority of the people of Iran who today intelligently put either their King and their Country above God.

Though I just noticed the article is over 10 years old, so its stats are for 2002 not 2014. It does hold gems on how we are being used to screw ourselves and made to look real stupid and it also holds clues as to what we should focus on, in terms of working in cooperation to remove the unwanted IRI system.

Mohammad Reza Pahlavi was a man who with all the domestic and foreign problems that the country was faced with took charge of the leadership of a country that, as the author says, annual income per capita of its residents was $174, and the day he left the country, he had raised it to more than $2400 (18) (real-terms equivalent of $6,000 today) or put more simply:

The average Iranian was one of the wealthiest in the 3rd world. We even imported doctors from Pakistan, drivers from Korea, labourers from Turkey and Afghanistan, had one of the best trained and best equipped military forces in the world and at the very same time the country had one of the largest capital reserves in the whole world. The future of our young was bright.

From 1963 to 1977 our GNP went from 340bn rials to 5682bn rials, a 16 fold increase in 15 years. In this period we had a 13.8% compound growth rate in savings (from 45bn to 1509bn). And by 1974 we were listed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as the 13th wealthiest country in the world.

This makes him a dictator and despot to those who’s political motives objected to a patriarchic society with a strong economy and military. For ordinary Iranians he was benevolent and with high wishes for his country. He should be praised for this. The observation of world-wise tourist in our country was also that the Shah of Iran was a good man completely dedicated to the welfare of his people and the Iranian masses loved and supported him.

What I propose to you the reader to assume is that such manipulation of history by the underwriters of the Islamic Revolution will continue. And we will continue to hear what theoretically, based on unreal assumptions, seem right.

The Iranian political scene, the incompatible and divergent views are the result of NOT factors with in Iran, but the forces acting on and imposed on Iran and Iranians, which has lead to Iranians being intentionally manipulated, deceived and coerced to meet ends not in service of themselves, but clearly to the benefit of others who are using their superior wealth to dominate Iranians. The cases are pretty clear and people will gradually realize where their power has been squandered by themselves, under forced errors and how to regain their own power and effective system back, instead of being used against themselves. http://www.persiansphinx.com/home.htm?pagetwo.htm~mainFrame

NIAC is not supposed to get things right. Look at their rhetoric. It all boils down to one thing: Let's work with the regime in Tehran no matter what. And they abhor all those who say otherwise. In the real world of politics, though, entities such as NIAC don't count.

I too have miraculously ended up on NIAC's mailing list and I too have received ridiculous messages telling the "members" to go all the way to Washington in order to shake hands with "their" representatives. Never telling the members why Iranians back home are not so lucky to have their representatives in Tehran as well. Why should they?

Let me know when they have an election. Or hold a survey to see ask what the members want NIAC to do. In Two years as a paid member, I haven't seen on yet.

The beauty of Iran before devolution of 79 was not that it was all good, all happy and all perfect. It's wonder was that despite staggering odds and in a relatively short time it had managed to (almost) rid itself of ertejaa' and regressive mindset. It had managed to raise it's people to top ranks of "eastern world", avoid wars, establish strong relationships with key world players and the rest, keep enemies on notice, and mightily defend IRANIAN interests. Territorial, political and economic. It raised the status of Iran passport to top tier and most importantly what we all want because of our claim as the oldest country in the world and among the oldest civilizations: our good name and honor. This is why that despite islamic republic we root so mightily for our Team Melli and other "non-islamic" national symbols like Cyrus' cylinder that even this anti-Iran and anti-human regime connected itself to to milk national pride.
So we can talk about Iran's ranking as 11th richest country in the world then having dropped to 22 or so despite oil income that makes pre-devoltion oil income look like pocket change; or GDP that was 3 times what it is today as a percentage of global, or that we were a 'normal' country with our share of good and bad. That our women, children, old, young, veteran, students, professors, teachers, workers, Osanloo's and Tavakoli's, Bahaii's, Sufi's, Armenians, Sunni's and just about anything you can categorize outside of this regressive and hateful regime, were not in constant risk of abuse, prison, property confiscation, rape, insult, injury and death. Our women were not exported and our children did not sleep in underground sewers, and our natural and historical resources were not being destroyed and plundered.
islamic regime is a global menace but first and foremost it is a menace to Iranian culture, heritage, dignity, and sanity. No political magic show, talking heads or bastardization of history can change that material truth. The question is how much worse will it get and whether Iran will survive them.

BehrouzBahmani

Behrouz Bahmani if you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with.

Iran was never perfect, but in 1975-1977 I felt about as close as I have. Which is why I think we can get even closer.

If we weren't always under the thumb of some dictatorship or another.

Apparently it now seesm that what Iran needs is one last Dictator who forces the people to unreasonably accept Democracy, whether they like it or not.

Zal6092

It is not about democracy by any means. Rather about our demeanor and quirky culture temperament. Our leaders over time are a reflection of us as a collective. Iran's march to progress was halted by a massive campaign of misinformation and disinformation that started in early 70's led by the usual suspects.
The very same conspirators (and majority of Iranians-then and now) who wanted shah gone by any means necessary including violence and terror rather than gradual transition and change, have been advocating for patience and "reform" as the only option with a regime that is neither reformable nor will ever transition peacefully.
It is our quirky nature and ungraciousness that has landed us here. We are a gullible and selfish people and are reaping what we sow.

BehrouzBahmani

Behrouz Bahmani if you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with.

Thank you for getting that. Most don;t and are all to willing to excuse our weakness in the face of our own demise, and would rather point at all the co-consiprators outside of our reach.

The result being, "Oh Well, since it's all the fault fo the US, we might as well get on with our lives."

Which I am now saying is utter Horse Sh#*%. Part for the problem with being considered to be a slut, is being this easy.

When we stop apologizing for being cowards, we might actually become something more like we hope to be.

Mr. Bahmani is on record saying:

"Honestly, I don't mind the US arming Sunnis against the Shiites. Because guess who's a Shiite!"

Well, Mr. Bahmani, I'll see your Shi'ite-Sunni war and raise you the bombing of Tehran. Here's why:

The ceasefire that ended Iran-Iraq war came about only as a result of Tehran being hit by the Iraqi missiles. You see, until 1987 Iraqi forces did not have in their arsenal missiles that could reach Tehran. Although the Ayatollahs had sent hundreds of thousands of Iranians as young as eight years old to their death and cared less that many of Iran's cities were bombed on a daily basis, they feared two things the most, their own death and the Tehranis who only had a second-hand and vague idea of what being bombed meant. So, the fear of their own death as a result of being hit by the enemy missiles or bombs and the fear of uprisings by the Tehranis forced the Ayatollahs to agree to a ceasefire.

Now, in the event the US decide to bomb Iran they should hit Tehran and Tehran only. This way, the Ayatollahs will surely run away as soon as the missiles and bombs start hitting Tehran. They have a lot more than Iran at stake, the embezzled billions of dollars tucked away in foreign banks.

So, let's all pack and be ready to go back and reclaim our country as soon as the Ayatollahs are gone!

BehrouzBahmani

Behrouz Bahmani if you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with.

What is worst of all about this war that I guess NIAC did not see coming, is that this raises the very real possibility that since the US is exhausted militarily now, they might consider a limited nuclear strike if the Special forces approach doesn't work.

You're right about Iran Air [I guess, I was still an infant during last year of Shah's reign]. Much to the annoyance of my mom, my father always reminisces about how pretty Iran Air's flight attendants were during those years.

I agree with you on the basic freedoms in Shah's era. Satan willing, I'll put together a blog about that at some point.

And on Iraq and nation building, Bill Maher said it best. Here, watch the end part of this "New Rules" section of his show:

The point is not that it is a Menace. It's the rest of the world that brought fundamentalist extremists Islam to power, not the people of Iran, the former colonial world, the current empire, supports democracy for extremists in order to destroy the development of the societies they want to, in order to meet their aims, which they all exposed in the 1970's and have been following with out a change since then. The major Policy shift, which has become love extremists to thwart countries was developed by "the Club of Rome" and "top US Universities in the 1970's".
