This comment is logically impoverished. There's no correlation between fake accounts, "Islamophobia", Trump, and soup.

But anyway, I'm not defending anybody here. I'm just trying to offer some badly needed common sense. I have my own opinions of some members on this site, but I keep it to myself, since sharing it would be rude and fruitless.

Fake accounts and cyber-duplicity in general is something I'm not in favor of. I can back this up by reminding you how I exposed a certain multi-accounter on this website who was fooling everybody here before I came and brought him to attention. It was a thankless job, something I'm not interested in doing any more.

I can't be an "Islamophobe", since the word "phobia" implies irrationality. My comments are fully rational and factual, to the fullest degree possible, and your inability to directly address my arguments regarding this matter with anything other than baseless ad hom attacks proves this to be correct.

I'm not American, so I couldn't care less about your petty domestic politics and your buffoon of a president. But let me tell you something. Trump is not a fake president. Don't blame the Russians for his election to office. Like him or not he was elected to office through a fully legitimate process within the American political system. He is your president, and the president Americans deserve. Trump is the full manifestation of the American national character. It's not really my problem that some Americans haven't yet come to terms with this obvious reality, but it partly explains the obsession with Trump on this forum and elsewhere.

By all means, share your input, nobody told you to be quiet. All we expect is nothing more than politeness and an adequate amount of logic and facts behind your comments.

Ash (this word in Farsi means soup)

Since you are a true Islamophobe it's natural for you to defend the presence of fake Iranian accounts here and everywhere as long as they agree with your hateful comments about Muslims of this world. But I wont sit quietly and let it pass without my input. Fake accounts and fake sentiments is the reason why we have ended up with a fake president called Trump.

This is the internet, everybody can be anything, including you and me and the member you referred to. This is why it's a good idea to focus on the arguments and avoid dwelling on the person putting them forth. Some members here make a lot of good convincing arguments, so it's not really relevant whether they are Zionist trolls, Iranian-American Mullah apologists, or Communist Arab shills. Gossiping in Persian is not going to make up for the lack of solid arguments. It's an unmanly thing to do.

نکته جالب در مورد این ترول طرفدار اسرائیل که اسم خودشو گذاشته سیروس این است که اون چند نفری که دیگه ازشون خبری نیست اینجا فکر می‌کردند که این طرفدار رژیم ایرانه و مرتب بهش می گفتند که فاطمه کماندو و غیره. ببین که اونا چه زود و آسون گول این یارو رو خورده بودند.

The video shows people are still being lured in by this idea of American withdrawal from the middle east, as if it is some kind of permanent thing. Wrong. The US will maintain a presence in the region forever, more or less. What will change is the size of that presence - it will be adjusted to manage new contingencies as they emerge. That means sometimes the presence will decrease, and sometimes it will increase. THERE IS NO PERMANENT WITHDRAWAL.

Israel and the Gulf Arabs don't need to get Putin to turn on Iran. When Iran no longer serves Russian interests, it will be "dumped", or at least that will be the impression many people will get. But let's make one thing perfectly clear: Russia and Iran DO NOT have a proper alliance. In other words, Iran will ultimately left to defend its own interests - that was never Russia's job; Russia never agreed to protect Iran from anyone.

Bolton's words should come as no surprise. And even if the US states it is pulling out, it probably won't. They don't just give up and walk away from the middle east. Yeah, the mullah regime is a bloody menace to the rest of the world because it wants to set up its own regional order, naturally with the mullahs at the top. It will not be allowed to happen, and many people have died and will continue to die making sure it doesn't. I mean, what the mullahs have tried to accomplish regionally since the revolution is just another definition of insanity. It was never realistic. In the face of overwhelming opposition, all Iran under the mullahs can do is score occasional minor tactical victories and disrupt the globalist agenda, but in the end, the cost of the inevitable strategic loss for Iran will never be worth it for the nation. Iran does not have the capacity to prevail under any circumstances.

"Bolton’s comment has now placed defeating Daesh and eliminating the presence of Iranian troops in Syria — troops that were invited into the country by the Syrian government — on equal footing."

The IRI is in fact a greater long term strategic threat to Western imperial interests than ISIS. Anyone with even a rudimentary understanding of geopolitics should understand why.

Those people who imagined a great strategic partnership between Russia and Iran may perceive future events as a split, when in fact there will not be one because the two states were never united in holy matrimony.

The US policy towards Iran is war, to put it simply. "War" can mean a few different things, but none of them are pleasant. The way the mullahs have been carrying on for the past 39 years has not exactly invited much pleasure for the nation. The NIAC is a mullah lobby group and therefore part of the problem, not part of the solution.

All the big European corporate names are pulling out of Iran, so this move is more symbolic than anything else - the EU is still desperate to be seen as the good guy. It is also a toothless tiger.

This comment is highly problematic. Allow me to break it down:

1. The IR has absolutely no military capability to close the Strait of Hormuz. None whatsoever. Period.

2. Rationally, closing the Strait of Hormuz would only be a last-resort decision taken by the IR if all other options failed, including diplomacy. This makes it pointless and nonsensical to talk about such decision being taken in combination with other methods. Besides, even if this card was played in tandem with other cards, no amount of "sustained diplomacy" and "necessary credibility" would be enough to force the opposing powers to negotiate a way out of the crisis, especially when facing a regime that has zero credibility and little diplomatic and military power. Shutting down the Strait would be so provocative that it would invite nothing less than direct military action.

3. Closing the Strait of Hormuz would essentially be a declaration of war on the US and the so-called international community. Nobody would tolerate it, not even the IR's "strategic partners". Additionally, the US would respond with so sheer a force that the Strait would easily be re-opened in a matter of days. The Islamic navy would be obliterated, and if things further escalated, Muslims in Iran would be bombed back to Jahiliyyah.

4. Chess was invented by Indians, not Iranians. Yes, Iranians are good at playing chess, but the Mullahs are not Iranians, neither do they play chess. The Mullahs are Abrahamo-Semites speaking a half-Persian language, and they suck at chess too, given that their abominable regime is as self-defeating as any ruling regime can possibly be. The game they are playing is called mass suicide, and the only thing that has delayed the inevitable outcome of this game is British patronage and lack of military enthusiasm by the US.

5. Iran is not an independent country, it has never been so in the past 1400 years. For 14 centuries it has been under Islamic colonial rule (which is another name for Arab colonialism), and right now it is suffocating under an Anglo-Russian-Arabian Islamic theocracy. Moreover, it was mainly the Mullahs who brought down Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh, which means they were the ones who robbed Iran her only chance of true independence.

I encourage regime apologists in Iran and elsewhere to take these points into consideration when trying to assess the situation.

Article:
"the Strait of Hormuz. This card, already played by President Rouhani and backed by the military leaders, can be effective only if played (a) in tandem with the other cards, such as sustained diplomacy, and (b) with the necessary credibility. On the other hand, if the other side does not take this threat seriously and considers it as an empty tactical maneuver, then its use would be sub-optimal and even counterproductive"
Note: This is a game of chess, a game of survival for Iranians as an independent nation. A game started since the overthrow of the popular Iranian prime minister Dr. Mossadegh by the United States. Iranians invented the game of chess.

Music to my ear, that is:

“Russia is ready to invest $50 billion in Iran’s oil and gas sectors,” Akbar Velayati, a senior adviser to Iran’s supreme leader, told the Financial Times (paywall) on Friday. “Military and technical co-operation with Russia is of major importance to Iran.”

The idea of closing the Strait of Hormuz is so childish. They think they can do that with a bunch of glorified Revolutionary dinghies. The IR can’t even patrol half of its land borders and yet it wants to shut down the Strait right in front of the most powerful navy in the world. If there’s any “spectre” here, it’s none other than the spectre of Muslim Iranian imbecility.

Modern Iranians always love to have a big foreign brother. Whether it’s Russia, China, USA, UK, or even Nazi Germany, there’s always a spineless Iranian whore willing to be a foreign lapdog and turn the country into a colony. Right now it’s an Anglo-Russian Islamic colony.
