'"For the Islamic Republic of Iran, time is running out," Iran's representative Mohsen Mohebi told the ICJ's judges on Wednesday.'

Time is running out for the Islamic Republic of Hell? Oh, boo-hoo!


'"The lives of millions of people residing in this country are already deeply suffering from the sanctions reinstated by the United States... and will further suffer as these sanctions are expanded and aggravated."'

Don't pretend to care about ordinary Iranian people now.

In order to turn public opinion against Iran and lessen opposition to a possible war, it would make sense for Western security services to engineer a false flag attack if Iran didn't make any suitable false moves of its own volition. I say "Western" not "US", because I am not convinced that the Europeans are truly opposed to the US on this matter - I suspect it may be more a case of public image. That is, the Europeans don't want to be SEEN as the bad guys, when in fact they are on board with America's anti-Iran agenda. Regarding the MEK, remember it was the UK who delisted them as terrorists first, not the US, so something is going on there.

The Mullahs are not known for their support of anything Iranian, they would sell off the persian identity to become completely arabized, including forcing arabic script and language on the persian people, the reason being that the liar and child rapist their so called prophet mohammad was an arab.

Asia and the East China Sea should be increasingly occupying the Empire's focus, resources and adventurism. Unlike the aforementioned the ME presents no meaningful threat to America's post-Cold-world order. For the foreseeable future they will keep selling weapons to the region, Egypt will continue being paid off, and Israel will maintain its military superiority. To be sure Syria has been a slap in America's face and prestige, but if looking to squeeze out a few more years or decades out of US imperialism they are well served to be less engaged in the ME.

There's a very thin line between refraining from recklessly provoking an empire and kowtowing to it. This line separates reasonable cautiousness from spineless cowardice.

One of the things that separates Dr. Mossadegh from MRP and the Mullahs is the fact that his cause was just and his fight with the imperial powers well-chosen. Unlike the aforementioned idiots, Mossadegh did not recklessly provoke the foreign enemy because of an irrational reason or self-serving purpose. He fought not for religion, ideology, or power, but for sovereignty, freedom, and justice. He fought for his nation, and he knew what he was doing. Even though Iran and Mossadegh ultimately lost in the end, it was a good fight, since it was a heroic and defiant mockery of foreign enemies that had a chance to yield fruits and was driven by noble principles and ideals that continue to inspire millions of Iranian patriots.

Iran may have been driven out of the international community had Mossadegh succeeded, but is being part of that club more important than national honor, dignity, and independence? Absolutely not. Fighting against the odds is the right thing to do a lot of the times.

I beg to differ. This analogy would be valid if the intended goal in Syria was simply trashing the country. But I believe what was intended was much more than that. America & Co. wanted to overthrow Assad, completely dismantle the country, and pave the way for a certain economic and political project they had in mind. Of course, none of that has been accomplished. Assad is still in power, the country has not been dismantled, and the project has not been realized.

Clearly this is a victory for Assad and his partners, but at the same time it is also a Pyrrhic victory. Another valid way of looking at this is to consider the whole thing more of a failure by Assad's enemies than a victory for him - i.e. the US lost the conflict, Assad did not win it.

What remains clear is that the Syrian conflict has signaled the end of the post-Cold-War unipolar world order.

Until very recently they didn't even want to hear Mossadegh's name being mentioned. Just a bunch of hypocrites

I laugh when I see mullah cronies lament the fall of Mossadegh, when they are preventing another Mossadegh from ever rising again. Which side were they on in that struggle? Lies, lies, lies.

If we follow your line of reasoning then we must also separate John Bolton and Mike Pompeo from Trump. Hadn't Zarif been in line with Khamenei he wouldn't have survived.

Well said. It seems they have conveniently forgotten the key role of the Islamists in the 1953 coup, and how the Mullahs have always been British lackeys.

Whether conservatives or "reformists", the Islamists and their dogs in the diaspora have always been and will always be the enemies of the Iranian nation. The fact that the "reformists" have now started to flirt with the ghost of Dr. Mossadegh is an obvious desperate attempt to salvage the fragments of their shattered credibility and prevent the inevitable fall of the Islamic Republic of Hell. But nobody is fooled by this. Dr. Mossadegh and his Nationalist movement were the antithesis of everything the Islamists stand up for and represent, which is 7th century Islamo-Arabian colonialism with all of its despicable principles, fake ideals, false morality, and demonic anti-Iranian culture.

Russia primary interest was in keeping their naval facility in Tartus intact. They also did not want to lose the Russian friendly Assad regime as an arms client. These two objectives have been overwhelmingly achieved.

Meanwhile Iran's primary goal was to keep the Syrian routes to Lebanon's Hezbollah open and flowing with arms. With Assad steadily reclaiming rule over much of the land that was lost, Iran's mission has been largely accomplished.

America abdicated its role in Syria when Obama decided to sit on the sidelines and let the Russians move in. Obama's thinking back then was that this would become another Afghanistan and an endless war that can't be won. He was wrong. As for Trump, he made a campaign promise to get out of Syria. He is eager to fully disengage and get out of the country but his generals and Netanyahu are pushing him to stay.

State of the country: The victors accomplished their goals. So yes, the ends justified the means. The US has used this formula for decades but for a change it's finding itself on the other side of the fence.

"MM: I was not only against a democratic republic but any type of those kinds of regimes since a change in regime does not necessary bring progress to a nation. Until a nation is knowledgeable and informed and there are not competent administrators in a country, the country’s fate will remain the same.

There are many countries whose regimes are a republic but do not enjoy freedom and there are those countries whose regimes are constitutional monarchy and they enjoy freedom and independence."

He was definitely right there. Look what happened when Iran became a republic.
Shhhh... Mossadegh was against a democratic republic. We'd better keep that one quiet.

Yes. But Russians and Iranians achieved their goals. As did Assad who wet hated the storm and is still in power. The country is being rebuilt as we speak. Of course, none of the actors in Syria including the losers (US, Israel, Saudi, UAE etc) give a rats ass about Syrians but fact remains that the triumvirate of Russia, Iran and to a lesser extent Turkey achieved its goals.

Calling it a "line of reasoning" is giving it undue credit. It's a line of stupidity more than anything else. But you are absolutely correct. In the Islamic Republic of Hell nobody is allowed to become part of the system without being in line with the Islamic Revolution. This is one of the reasons why no one opposed to the Islamic regime should trust the "reformists/moderates". They are all criminals just like everyone else in the system. Their abominable Islamic regime is the reason why there's a threat of war against Iran. But the vile hypocritical Iranian-American supporters of the Islamic Republic of Hell will always deny this. It's a waste of time to even respond to such moral lepers.

The mullahs partnered with the British in 1953 and again in 1979, but now their time has come and they don't know what to do about it.

Your comment is silly. To the winner goes the spoils. The benefits and gains for Assad, Iran, Russia and to a lesser extent Turkey will become more obvious in the years to come.
