French Description:

Au début des années 60, le Shah se lance dans une ambitieuse réforme agraire, à la base de sa «révolution blanche». Il distribue ses propres terres aux paysans et incite les propriétaires terriens à s'engager dans la voie de ce changement important pour la société iranienne puisqu'il conduit à la modernisation et à la laïcisation du pays. L'équipe de Continents sans visa a voulu savoir ce que les paysans attendent de cette réforme.

I usually don't agree

by mullah-kosh on

I usually don't agree with much of nonsense that sargord wanna be writes on this site. I doubt he is ever been to a close proximity of a military base much less than being a sargord in Islamic Republic army. He is the jester of this court we call IC. However, even a jester is right from time to time, and this is one of those cases. All these dictators running around with so much metal on their chest, they can't even stand up straight. Interestingly, most of the stuff they have on is not earned, which in military context can be the basis of dishonorable dismissal. Dictators such Shah are the ones who are oghdeyee (with various complexes) who seem to think that putting on fake medals, fake military uniforms, and torturing the leftist youth from poor neighborhoods of Iran for their political belief while allowing animals like Rafsanjani,and Khomeini to go free is projection of their "greatness" and power.

Another jester is Marge, who lives to up to her "avatar". Of all things that Shah had done, the really only good thing was the land reform, and voting right acts of the white revolution. His land reform brought Iran out of that dark age islamic feudalism that Iran was living in. But then again, it is hard pressed for a jester to get a grasp of these things..


To this day, There is no one like Shah in...

How many leaders you know in Middle East and/or The Entire World in those days and even today who could and can speak, read, write multiple langueges fluently, actually do and be very good in multiple sports, have talents such as flying airplanes, be academically and culturaly so highly educated and have such an unbelievable class naturally????!!! How many???? Even in today's world!!! I tell you! NONE, OK!!! BIG 00000000000000000 (zero)!!!!

Those who hated Shah were and are the low lives who have been suffering from unbearable inferioity complex, period. Because they saw and still see themselves so low and ugly on all levels, the only way to make themselves feel better was and is to bring a LEGEND like SHAH down... 

Well, got news for you!!! 75% of Iranian population who are below the age of (30-35) prefer a legend like Shah to a filthy rooze khoon (Khomeini and Khamenei) and Mostraah shoor like (Antari Nejad) These backwards can not even speak Arabic yet!!! What a sad joke....Wait and you will see these Iranians will kick the arab lovers out of Iran for good...


Mr. Kadivar,

by Arthimis on

Thank you so much for your relentless quest of educating Iranians after 31 years Sir... However, some of these people you are argueing with, the ones who have revolted and continue to despise Shah and his grand legacy are either exteremly stupid or simply on satanic Republic's payroll as mercenaries who never understood Iran to begin with... It is an absolute waste of your precious life to argue and debate with these Iran haters... The entire sane and fair world (True Iranians included) can ditinguish and recognize between a legend (Shah) vs. likes of Khomeini, Khamenei and the entire Satanic I.R. establishment... These Iran haters (Shah haters...) with their unimaginable retarded and backward Islamic mentalities and beliefs were and are the cancer to our beloved Motherland and the entire region and the world on all levels!!! Godwillingly, they will be destroyed to the last one as a result of their own stupidity and final stupid actions!!!

Meanwhile, please continue educating the young Iranians who are thirsty for True Persian Wisdom, Civilization, Culture, Language, Identity and Class... Unlike these very low Islamic Arab lovers who sold and still sell their own family to Satan worshipers!!! 


Doorood bar shoma va Mardome Mehan-Paraste Iran.

HM was an innocent man!!

by onlyinamrica on

He was just carrying out the orders of his masters. He was a good obedient poodle. Now this little French poodle, monsieur DK that is, trying very hard to portray a good face for his long gone master by showing these nauseating old footage (people dropping their faces on HM's shoes). BTW, Monsiuer DK, do French have any old footage of their past leaders that surrounded by military generals and bodyguards while ordinary citizens one at a time allowed to kiss his shoes and hands.  How many times you had the honor of kissing a royal shoe? LOL  No hard feeling ;0)

Sargord Your Pink Fourrageres doesn't really match Your Blue ;0)

by Darius Kadivar on

Quite a "Gay" Looking I should say ...


Your Blue uniform and Pink Fourrageres would make a Hit at the upcoming San Francisco's Gay Pride Parade this year. Give it a Try you may enjoy it and find yourself in good company !


With the New Trend of accepting Homosexuals in the US Army I think Your uniform will have great success too.



With Your Half American nationality maybe you can join the US Army upon your permanent exile after the upcoming Restoration of the Monarchy in IRan.


Cheers Darling ...

Look at that 1961 military

by Sargord Pirouz on

Look at that 1961 military uniform. What are all the ribbons for? Now I know that royals are fond of trading each other's various "orders" of this or that (completely meaningless in a military context), but this was ridiculous by any reasonable standard.

At least Khamenei and Ahmadinejad don't don military uniforms, postwar. And IRGC officers don't wear row upon row of ribbons and a "grab bag" of "fruit salad" on their chests- even though many are genuine war heroes many times over.
