A very refreshing voice of reason and sobriety from America. Her colonial argument against Arab/Turkic separatist sentiments in Iran is one of the sharpest attacks on anti-Iranian ethnocentrism I have seen.

The red worm has now grown a seventh head. Will the multi-headed vermin planted by the neo-liberal capitalist empire ever get crushed underfoot by the moderators? Only time will tell.

Courage and moral resources are certainly beyond the comprehension and grasp of six-headed red worms.

I would like to say we shouldn't lose hope, but I prefer not to be a hypocrite. The more I think about Iran, the closer I come to despair. I have a very strong suspicion that Iran is finished, that it's a lost cause and the people are pretty much done. The idea that Iran has reached the end of its h ... Read more

American imperial interests in Iran are destructive for the country in various ways. As a capitalist power the US wants to dominate and exploit Iran till there's nothing left of the country but an empty shell. That's destruction. You understand what I mean?

Moving on. What does success by free Iran ... Read more

What I naturally do not approve of is some Iranian enlisting in a foreign criminal outfit bent on the destruction of Iran as a nation and then claiming to identify with the "land of their ancestors" as though their ancestors would be proud of their descendants selling out. I would understand somebod ... Read more

What's there for you to brag about? That she is part of the word's largest terrorist organization (the US military) and that she flew gunships in Afghanistan probably murdering civilians as usual American business there? The fact that some "Iranians" feel proud of this is yet another demostration of ... Read more

Donald Trump is hands down the best president in the glorious 250 years-old history of the United States of America. The reason is quite obvious, dear reader. Trump is the ideal American. He is arrogant, vulgar, stupid, ignorant, racist, rapist, misogynist, thuggish, corrupt, childish, fake, ugly an ... Read more

This seems very insignificent and short-term when contextualized within the grand scheme of things over longer periods of time. This accidental and limited flourishing of the arts neither healed the deep wound inflicted by the Mongol invasion nor did it save Iran from the path of terminal decline to ... Read more

Of course, the Mongols did not treat every province in the country the same way, but when looking at the universally unprecedented criminal record of the Mongol invaders and its long-term consequences it becomes very hard to think of them as similar to other conquerors. The effect of the Mongol conq ... Read more

The Mongols were truly unmatched in their atrocious treatment of Iran and Iranians. Nonetheless, it should be acknowledged that they were not the only ones who traumatized Iran. The Macedonians, Arabs, Turks, Safavids, Afghans, Afsharids, and even the Russians and the British committed their shares ... Read more

Thank you for taking the time to write a lengthy response.

Some disagreements.

Comparing Iran to other nations seems very problematic, since Iran is an exceptional nation that exists in a unique context. It is certainly inspiring that some countries managed to elevate themselves, though it is doub ... Read more

So according to that Arab, apparently every group of people in Iran who speaks a different dialect or language has become a "nation". Amazing how some individuals think we live in a world where there are nations within nations.

Poor ethnic minorities, they feel oppressed just because their language ... Read more

That Iranians were devotional and loyal to authority is debatable, as is the claim that Kurosh-e Bozorg was driven by a desire to enshrine "human rights". It must be said that the history of ancient Iran is full of examples where Iranians stood up to abusive leaders. The Shahnameh too does not shy a ... Read more

The wonders of climate change. I can relate to the inhabitants of Arizona, since I happen to live in a place where summer temperature is typically at 47°C. Life without air conditioners in such climate would be truly unbearable. But even with modern technology it is still quite difficult. I have a s ... Read more

You see mullahs where there are none, which tells me you have some deep-rooted personal issues with mullahs. I wonder if you see them under your bed too.
