“The fact that Iran continues to challenge the international community means that ... those who do business with Iran represent a threat,” Rice added.

Well it is about time. However, the irony is that most of the trading is done via US proxies from Dubai. And then you've the oil that goes to China. So Dr Rice is going to go to the Chinese and tell them to stop trading with the Seyyeds. Now that would be a miracle. For crying out loud, why doesn't someone tell the Americans, to help the Iranians take care of their own business themselves. You know, talk about the other Iranians; that are cleverer and more intelligent and better than the Seyyeds. Fact is that if all the professional Iranians came and ran Iran, the Western companies would have a new Japan to deal with, and that is the last thing they want. No, these guys want Iran to become a pariah state. Only Iranians can help themselves, and we will. The last thing you want is for the Seyyeds to tell us (once they have been rejected), that the Americans changed Iran for the better.

Non-violence starts with

by alimostofi on

Non-violence starts with tolerance and respect for some else's free will and free speech. It is because of these values that I post, and I tolerate, or rather ignore, and want others to ignore the violent words of others. We will persevere no matter what rubbish a person writes. We can all recognise the good from the bad.

Ali's reply to Tonya

Ali; next time you read a comment by Tonya or some fair minded person like her, take time to reply, read it a few times more to understand what she has written. And when you reply, read your own writing a few times to understand what you have written. lol

I meant to say "mother" of a Marine.  And proud of it.  God Bless humanity with hopes that any further bloodshed or illwill can be avoided.

Aha... an idealist!  I

by Tonya (not verified) on

Aha... an idealist!  I knew it.  What in the world are you doing here?  Would that there be more with your attitude!  Probably not feasible but always desperately hoped for.  My perspective is obviously subjective.  American born and raised... married to a Persian... feeling the pain he suffers every day of his life missing his family and HOMEland... wishing that there was an easy answer.  Son of a Marine who conceivably might be in Iran sooner than my husband ever will be... dreading more loss of innocent life.  And for what?  To see who's got the biggest stick (yes, pun intended)?  I agree that Iran must heal from within and solve it's own problems.  I know I know... the US helped put the Mullahs in power... blah blah blah.  But why the heck is a country so full of pride, culture and heritage doing just sitting back and blaming everyone else???  That is the sticking point with my husband.  I think you're giving the US way too much credit!  We (the US) fought back against the English... the Russians... Japan...and even ourselves.  We might not have a lot of class (comparitively speaking) but we can say THIS.  We don't take shit from nobody!  And I live for the day that the REAL Persians stand up and say the same... not the majority of anti-everyone else that usually spouts their vicious rhetoric throughout iranian.com.  God (I hope that's not offensive) Bless you... you're a sane voice amid insanity.

my2cents&more: Thanks for

by alimostofi on

my2cents&more: Thanks for your comment. Yes I get asked this a lot. Actually if you look at the reasoning behind the Islamists running Iran, you will see that they truly want to create a new kingdom. In simple terms they seem themselves as direct descendants of Abraham via his first son from his second wife, and then via Halabi Qureshi (aka Mohammad). No thanks to the apostate Salman Parsi, we have people who believe in a Kingdom based on this dynasty. But what has it got to do with Iran? Nothing. Islam was pretty much wiped out by Hulaku and if it were not for Al-Hili who converted the last Mogul Emperor we would not have them back. Iran prospered a lot under the Mogul interlude which allowed all the main poets of Iran to flourish. All that was snuffed out once Islam was reset under Shah Ismail, who ironically had a Christian mother, but was raised by a Seyyed. So you see we have a problem. It is the tug of war of free will in the form of the old Iranian philosophy of Good Thoughts, Good Words Good Deeds, against idealism of Islam that has no tolerance for free will. But we Iranians have free will and our free will over come all.

Tonya: Thanks for your

by alimostofi on

Tonya: Thanks for your comments. No your are not being naive. Your questions are very pertinent. Yes we Iranians have to "get along" with everyone - even the Seyyeds - when they have gone. Our attitude must be, as I have written in many articles, of a higher moral order. The only way to change Iran, is by Iranians who want to do it in a civilized non-violent way, true to our impeccable heritage as sons and daughters of Zoroaster and Cyrus the Great. These are the very foundations of world civilization and Iran. We have to be proud to them. We cannot have anything but an Iranian, grass-roots change, that is done peacefully. Yes the world can get involved, but they have to be Iranologists. They must love Iran, and put Iran first for Iran's sake. Nothing else will do.

So I threaten the Seyyeds with questions along the lines of what would they do if the Iranians decided to go on a General Strike. And they have no answer. So the path is clear. And we will get there. Once we get there, we can look back and not see any blood or any aliens helping us. We did it ourselves. And we will. By Ahuramazda we will do it peacefully.

TO Ali M

by my2cents&more (not verified) on

What does the term "seyed" have to do with the mullahs running iran? Some of us are "seyeds" by birth which admittedly has become has become a non-relevant religous designation. However,you should not be imputing the evils of the current government to particular group as a whole. I understand you are trying to make a point about U.S government's policy towards Iran, but your presentation leaves much to be desired!

Being fairly new to iranian.com and American (but don't tell anyone because I usually get blasted just for that)... I know I don't have alot of the facts straight.  And I would never presume to imply that I do.  My sources are impeccable though... a true blooded Iranian who loves his country without question.  We have numerous debates... not arguments mind you.. but debates on the current issues.  We ARE singular in our belief that Iran would do better without "help" from the US.  One thing I'd like to point out though is that while Iran might suffer indirectly (figuretively speaking)from Rice's comments... I truly believe that the concern is more directed at Russia.  Call me naive... but I believe that harmony CAN exist between the US and Iran.  Obviously under a different regime though...lol.  We're the new kids on the block so to speak.  We've been pushed around ourselves from time to time.  Defensive?  Hell yes.  And with a bully like Bush and a psychotic like Cheney in the drivers seat... we're pretty damn dangerous.  We're like a teenage bully trying to push everyone around.  But we're not Satan.  There ARE many more moderate Americans who do care than there are rebel rousers.  What DOES Iran want from us? And it's not fair to say "nothing"... everyone needs something.  What DO you think we could do????  Again... naive but not stupid.  And just trying to understand!

Mash_Ghasem: thanks for

by alimostofi on

Mash_Ghasem: thanks for you comment. Yes many have expressed your comment in the past. But look at the demography and position of Iran geographically. All the countries in Western Asia stand to benefit from unbelievable human and natural resources. The Iranians even under the duress of the Seyyeds, are able to do business, and change Iran for the better. This has astonished the Americans, who want Iranians to go to USA, and help them. But as time goes by, Iran will slowly get rid of the Seyyeds, and will change. People will return to Iran. Iranian companies trade at Book Value. You cannot say that about any other country. We are the best part of the world for investment by any measure. I am not just saying that because I love my country. Of course we have goons like AhMADinejad to deal with, but people will find ways to get funds without the Seyyeds getting involved. And many of the Seyyed leaders are beginning to realise that each and every one of them has been identified. So they need to deal with Iranians if they want to survive. Iranian will overcome the Seyyeds.

Folks, as always please

by alimostofi on

Folks, as always please ignore the rude comments. Some people cannot write a blog of their own, but will be rude on others.  We have to allow free speech.  I will of course answer the polite comments.  And I think JJ should leave it that way.  We all have learnt to ignore them.

Huh ?

by Mash_Ghasem (not verified) on

"If all professional Iranian run Iran, Iran would be a second Japan" ? Only in your dream. We Iranians are the worst enemy of ourselves. Given a few decades of prosperity and calm, we will pour into steet and demand another mullah to come and ruin everything. Your point of view is another famous "we are so smart but all our faults is West's fault because they do not want a 2nd Japan" line of thinking. No, we are not that smart and from a culture infested with virus of Islam, you won't get a second Japan in a thousand years.
