IRI's initial populist slogan which claimed not to be of either eastern or western block lost its substance soon after mullahs' mismanagements and dire mistakes including but not limited to their disastrous decision on the continuation of the war beyond the Freedom of KhorramShahr.

The noble idea of the Non-Aligned Movement, founded by Tito, Sukarno, Abdel Nasser, and Nehru has a deeper root in the post-war world politics which is way above the mission of Majd and his ilks who are sponsored by the Rafsanjani &Co.  

Never increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything.

Wishful thinking to the tune of being anti-Iran is just that- wishful thinking. You people have been doing that for over 30 years now. Don't you think it's time you faced reality for a change?

yes, we are to believe that the mullahs represent 'IRAN AND THE PERSIAN CULTURE....!'


this crap is not going to fly anymore- it's not 1979!

and as far as 'foreign interference' goes, none other that carter, mi6, and the french stinkies were the true backers and creators or your beloved akhoonds!
