A dawn to Iran's era of Barbarism!


A dawn to Iran's era of Barbarism!
by ariane

In the aftermath of the recent thuggish attacks on the British Embassy compounds in Tehran, some reactions arose among many people saying that the Brits have paid for their leniency towards this regime. Notably allowing them to buy properties in Britain with the money they have looted from Iran and roam freely there, and in most cases settling and acquiring a second nationalit for theri good for nothing children. Afterall, the story of the guy who had a hypopotamus as a pet comes into mind. Knowing the violent nature of the beast, the man kept petting and feeding it. One day the animal attacked and killed him. He refused to see that coming.

I don't agree with that reasoning and these are my reasons. First of all, unlike the Iranians, the Brits look after their own national interests. As long as the money is coming, they don't care where it is coming from. They built an empire on that principle. It has to come from somewhere and with the leafy streets of west London being virtually one of the few and far between assets that they remain to have, if the money is has the blood stains of the Iranian people on it, they don't care and why should they? That is our propblem.

Iranians have habit of blaming everything but themselves for their misfortune. Among many other disasterus consequences, this habit of self denial makes you forget about the reality on th ground; Forgetting the reality of how serious your problems are and erasing the question without bothering to find an answer. This highlights another troubling Iranian national character trait, Irresponsibility! Towards our destiny and towards our society. You can see this in out streets, the way we drive, they way we go to picnics, even in our proverbs; "digi ke baraye man najoosheh, mikham sareh sag toosh bejoosheh.".

These are Iranian charactersitics that have made Iran the kind of a lawless, chaotic, materialistic society it is nowadays where individuality is the first word on everyone's mind.

No one put it better than William Hague, the type of actions that happenned in Tehran puts any nation to shame! It sure does. As a nation we have bow our heads in shame for leading our country to a point that we can't even behave like human beings.

I think what happenned in Tehran a few days ago is the starting point of increasing violence and lawlessness that will grip Iran in months and years to come. Time to wake up and do something fundemental about our country and if we care take our destiny in our own hands! Old 1953 Mossadegh stories won't do shit and frankly, who cares?!

One last thing! Why this regime is so anti life? Shame on those bastards who destroyed the beautiful and historic paintings in the British Embassy.

But where this regime came from? Not from Mars or Jupiter offcourse!

They came from us! We actually brought them in on our shouders and gave them the reign of power on a gold platter! Iranians gave and continue to give them a platform to do as please. The rest are excuses.

They are the embodiment of what is bad whithin our national characteristics.

The first stage to reform is recognizing our faults as a nation and work on them.

What is the infatuation with western powers helping or not helping a change in Iran. A responsible nation would not wait for others to depict its faith. Frankly we could use some help. We obviously can't do it on our own.

As for my background, I don't have to send out a resume each time I want to propose a thought!  Face the fact! Forget about saving face when there is none remaining...


Iranians do care about their destiny!

You are wrong, many Iranians care what happens in their country and they are not waiting for outsiders to come to their rescue.

Have you forgotten the peaceful demonstrations after the so called elections? Millions poured into the streets for days even though they knew they were risking their lives. And many did  pay for it with their lives, thousands were injured, raped, imprisoned and beaten savagely. What do you call this? Indifference to their destiny?

But this regime has always been like this, their atrocities go back almost over thirty years. Tens of thousands have been executed, many of them teenagers. Were they closing their eyes to the realities of living under the Ayatollah's rule and staying indifferent?

I do not know you and do not know of your background. But those who cared about Iran were aware of all these. To some people the barbaric nature of the regime only came into the open after the 2009 "elections".  

Iranians are dealing with an inhuman and barbaric regime that will stop at nothing in order to stay in power. It is very easy to write an article about Iranians not caring about their country while living somewhere abroad. Our people have never experienced life under calm and democratic conditions. The government has always been regarded as the enemy, the entity that oppresses you and loots your national assets. This has been the Iranian experience with regimes that have ruled over them as far as our history goes. They do not see them as their own representatives like in a democratic society where all people are accountable for their actions regardless of their position or wealth.

People start behaving normal (including the way they drive) and obey the rules once they are placed in an environment where things are done according to universal rules and laws that are applied to everyone without exceptions. How come most Iranians living abroad learn to act and behave according to the laws of the countries they live in? Are they a different breed compared to those in Iran? No my friend, the world around you has a great influence on you as a person.

You are infuriated about paintings destroyed by regime thugs and quite rightly so, but this regime has destroyed thousand times more valuable things and most of them part of our Iranian heritage and treasures.

I just hope the western countries do not give in to the mullah's this time and are serious about dealing with this regime. If a regime does not respect international laws and treaties how can it respect the rights of its own citizens. A universal oil embargo would be the end of this barbaric regime. 

Down with the ENTIRE Islamic Republic!

A very nice, accurate, and painful reflection of many many Iranians!
