Are You Ready for War with a Demonized Iran? / Paul Craig Roberts
16-Jun-2009 (6 comments)

How much attention do elections in Japan, India, Argentina, or any other country, get from the U.S. media? How many Americans and American journalists even know who is in political office in other countries besides England, France, and Germany? Who can name the political leaders of Switzerland, Holland, Brazil, Japan, or even China? Yet, many know of Iran’s President Ahmadinejad. The reason is obvious. He is daily demonized in the U.S. media.

Hmmmm,,,   Delusional

Delusional brainwashed embarrassed pro IRI Fascism desperately trying to soften the image of a bankrupted regiem..hmm,,it’s the Iranian people’s lucky day.


And now to answer your questions…


We have a brain. Our brain tells us not to participate in sham elections. What we said came out true and what you said came out wrong, its as simple as that. You participated thinking it’s a true election, we didn’t because we knew its not, who turned out right? US!


Furthermore, have you ever asked yourself why Iran is being threatened by everyone from Arabs, Europeans, U.S and everyone else, even Russia and China vote against it in U.N? Is it because its’ “righteous”? NO! It’s because it seeks confrontation, clash of civilization and war with the world for the simple reason they want to spread their fundamentalist agenda. One of the major demands of the Iranian people is for the regime to stop its blind anti Western culture of 1979.


Realities are complex, but unlike you,  1- we do our own analyzing 2- we don’t let Communists, whom ideology failed miserably, brainwash us telling us how the world works.


Also unlike you, what we want, and what the Iranian people want, is for the IRI regime to be removed. Iranians understand well that the core of the problem is the IRI regime. IRI is unfixable and Mousavi is just an excuse.


I am not a Monarchist nor pro Pahlavi. Also, explain what and who qualifies as “an Imperialist agent”??? That Communist term.

4 geniouses all on the same thread. It must be my lucky day.

Lets start with a fundamental question. Did any one of you three experts voted? Or where you amongst some of the bankrupted individuals who were telling everyone not to vote, whatever your twisted rationals.

I for one did vote and I voted for Mr. Mousavi. However, just because I voted for him that does not mean I am oblivious to facts and realities that are not being talked about, specially outside of Iran. I am also not oblivious to the fact that Iran is surrounded by the empire and its lackies and people of all stripes should be vigilant about those realities too.

So, is everything black and white? Maybe you think it is but I dont think so. Only the simpletons like you would make such claim. The realities are a lot more complex than meets the eye. I for one definitely like to read, listen to and study various analysis and reports so I can educate myself and when the time comes make a semi intelligent decision. But I guess you 4 geniouses or is it 3, already know the TRUTH therefore no need to read and contemplate any further.

Unlike you 4 political and social science geniouses I actually hope that there is a peaceful settlement and all parties come to an amicable agreement that satisfies the rightful demands being put forth by Mr. Mousavi. I also want to know based on facts and figures and names and etc... not just accusations and conjectures how this charade was pulled off, if in fact there was such a massive vote count fraud and those responsible for this act to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Unlike you I think the people on both sides of the plitical divide in Iran are citizens of the land and their voices and concerns should be heard and respected and those who instigate violence and baradar koshi are enemies of Iran.

I would really like to see those responsible for attacking university dormitories at night and destroying public property and beating students and causing injury and or death identified and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. But I also like to know who actually orders them into action in the middle of the night so they can also be exposed and brought to justice.

Looking at recent history it certainly gives me pause and I see the fact that the empire orchestrated velvet revolutions in several countries and brought to power individuals and power structures that serve its interests. I for one do not want to see a velvet revolution in Iran, instigated, orchestrated and stage managed by the empire and its lackies. That does not mean to imply that Mr. Mousavi, Khatami, Karoubi, Rezaie, Abtahi, Armin, Nabavi and dozens of others are agents of the empire but I am mindful of them falling into a trap that they are unable to recover from.  

In the meantime you monarchists and pro pahlavi geniouses go suck on an egg and think about your former masters thievery and brutality.

Smhb,   Have you no

by Farhad Kashani on



Have you no decenay at all? All people around the world have saluted the heroic uprising of Iranian people against the regime, Iranians and non Iranians, and you still come out using the same old rhetoric trying to soften the image of a regime which if it had any to begin with, has been destroyed totally after this recent event?


At a time when the world has realized the extent of this regime’s brutality and phoniness, and at a time when our brothers and sisters are getting butchered by the hand of this regime, which has dag its own grave, you have the audacity to come out and blame this heroic uprising against tyranny, dictatorship and terrorism on the “West”? Iranians put up with this savagery for 30 years and they just can’t take it anymore.


Honestly, you sound like the few desperate IRI regime people still left who have any faith in this regime. Even Khamenei has realized what Iranians and the world think of them.


If you don’t love Iran, at least show your love for human dignity. Show your human side, for once, that’s if you have any. I doubt it.



Who is this sm.. guy?

by Anonymous Irani (not verified) on

Is this guy an arab? Seriously, is he a palestinian or a lebanese hezbollahi? He does not seem to care at all about iranians under 30 years of oppression by the most vicious and corrupt islamic regime; only that he cares about pro-arab anti-iranian ideologies of the most brutal foreign regime that ever occupied iran.

IRI is worse than Mongols, Tatars; only resembling mullas' ancestors, Omar their beloved Caliph.

Take this opportunity to realize that the days for you and your kind are over. You are done. Finished. History.

You can't "delegitimize" what was never legitimate to begin with. Can you get that through your racist, bigoted, narrow-minded, IRI-loving brain?


Are You High Wahid Azal?

by Anonymous111 on

We all know who you are, "Wahid Azal".  I was actually wondering when you were going to crawl out of your hole and call this a U.S. conspiracy? 

Dude, everyone on the face of this PLANET knows that this was a coup and that the results of the election were rigged from the beginning...well, everyone but you apparently. 

You are supporting a fascist, murderous  regime.

With scores of people dead on the streets of Iran, no amount of conspiracy theories on the part of you and your ilk, and no number of attempts to link this to U.S., Israel, Saudi Arabia, Congo, Togo, Tahiti, The Bahamas or the planet Mars will work.  So, pack up your kaseh koozeh and go back to writing shit about Bahais under your other registered names (Nur, Covenenat) etc.
