Since you have decided to take the rude and cowardly passive-aggressive ad hominem approach against more than one forum member here, allow me to be extra honest with you, and you should read this carefully because this is going to be the last time you have my valuable attention.

It's not just the I ... Read more

Good observation, but a very bad conclusion.

True, Iran's problem is not limited to the Mullahs. Far from it. Iran's issues are varied, deep, and extreme. And they are very old too. Chief among them is nationwide institutional and cultural corruption, which makes Iran the quintessential Middle East ... Read more

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, s ... Read more

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 whe ... Read more

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, inclu ... Read more

Again, nobody on the perpetually bankrupt left is saying what needs to be said. Why were those Arab children and adolescents allowed by their adult family members to participate in the protests with the foreknowledge about potential deadly violence and trigger-happiness by the Israelis? Are they ext ... Read more

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 “spe ... Read more

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.

This weak article is a perfect example of the left's old love affair with Islam and especially its political manifestations. The socialist writer is outright flirting with the Basij and glorifying them under the guise of objectivity. I could almost read "Allaho Akbar" and "Ya Hossein" between the li ... Read more

This is a monument to the abysmal failure of the Muslim Iranian man and his entire religion. Those of them who aren't oppressing women in their country (indeed in their families too), are totally helpless in the face of this misogynistic oppression by the regime in addition to its exploitation by ho ...

Many Iranians lit candles for 9/11 victims, but not even an apology from a single American for this atrocious American crime against Iran and humanity.

This is nothing and yet people are dying because of it. It's 50+ degrees Celsius out here. Basically an inferno at midday. No casualties yet.

Get tough, and invest in an air conditioner. Things will be fine, for the time being at least.

The view that US politicians are ignorant and incompetent when it comes to foreign policy is highly misleading. They know exactly what they are doing, and they simply don't care that MEK is hated by most Iranians. They don't even need to be educated about other cultures, since they rule the most pow ...

Why did their parents take them to the protests in the first place? They should have known such a place was dangerous for kids. Perhaps they were using their own children as shields. In any case, it was an utterly stupid and irresponsible thing for the parents to do, and before we point fingers at t ... Read more
