Interviewed for "Iranium"

by Mohammad Alireza on

I have not yet seen "Iranium" but Sazegara agreed to be interviewed for it.

Why would he contribute to a warmongering propaganda film produced by the bomb Iran crowd?

More on "Iranium" and those that are behind it:

RG: I know

by ghalam-doon on

I know, I know. My "ingilish" is so imperfect but I'm working on it. One day I will be able to be as hateful and offensive as you are in my adopted language. Until then, I'll try to get my message across with my so imperfect "ingilish."


No doubt this infested regime is falling

by mahmoudg on

the question is how much we can do to ensure that Islam has little to no place in shaping its future.  that is the key.  Unless and until we can educate the people about the infestation of Islam, we will be in no better place in a future democracy.


The 4 Seasons Bismal "Green!"

by Demo on

Whether on Esfand or on Farvardeen, this "Green Giant" will be as treacherous as ever! Once A Traitor, Always A Traitor. Period.

Warnings: All videos of this GG might cause serious stomach burnings/ulcers! The use of "Pepto Bismal" is recommended even with a healthy stomach to watch these "Bismal" postings!

No Disillusionment!

by G. Rahmanian on

These guys were alienated as a result of factionalism within the IR. He wanted to run for president, but was not even considered. He was "disqualified." Entities such as Sazegara, Soroush, Ganji, etc. were more delusional than disillusioned. When they found out they were being perceived as mere cogs in the IR state apparatus and nothing else, they decided to show their displeasure by acting against the interests of those in power. Their activism is, however, qualified and constrained by their ideology and questionable past.


"green movement knows zilch about what is going on inside...

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

the government"

Oh really now?! which government did Mousavi and karoubi had the highest ranks and jobs within over the past 30 years whilst you were trying to learn some" ingilish" over here?!

You really need a trip "back?" to Iran before it's too late, if you know what I mean :) 


Siamack: I agree

by ghalam-doon on

This guy has a daily YouTube show where he talks about the strategy of the green movement (if there is one). He says what people should do, where they should go etc. etc.

I think no one has told him that perhaps people inside the security apparatus of the Islamic Republic might watch his show too!

The green movement knows zilch about what is going on inside the government. They don't even have a spy there so every time they become surprised when something happens. One would assume with Sazegara's credentials, he might have had some contacts within the Sepah, and if he has, he never talks about it.

And this guys tells "sir ta peeyaaz" of little strategy that the movement might have? Amazing!

Should I be watching this guy?

by Marjan Zahed Kindersley on

I just googled him.



"...During the 1979 revolution, he returned to Iran where he served as a founder of the Revolutionary Guard Corps and the managing director of the National Radio of Iran (1979–1981).[1] During the 1980s, Sazegara served as political deputy in the prime minister's office, deputy minister of heavy industries, chairman of the Industrial Development and Renovation Organization of Iran, and vice minister of planning and budget.[1]

As the decade progressed, Sazegara began to become disillusioned with the government. Following the end of the Iran-Iraq war in 1988 and the death of Ayatollah Khomeini in 1989, Sazegara refused further government posts saying that his refusal was in order to continue his study of history.[2..."] 


Almost as lovely as Philadelphia cheese with deputy dietary fat.

No doubt this gentleman is sincerely trying to help, but why would you post a detailed PowerPoint presentation of your strategy on the internet?!!!Wouldn’t your enemies love to get their hands on this?! Would a football coach post his playbook on the internet or a company publish its product launch plan in the Wall Street Journal!!! Just thinking out loud!
