Surely, it was never the goal of any of the "victors" to have to deal with the destruction of yet another country at the hands of the US/UK. To call this situation a "win" or victory takes a big stretch of the imagination.

I hope the new fighter jet is better than the F-313. I suspect they are so far behind that no matter what they do, any home grown fighter solution will be a waste of time and money unless it embodies imported current generation technology, which the world powers are unwilling to sell to Iran.

Mossadegh learnt what happens when you threaten the bottom line of powerful interests tied to a stronger empire than your own. I cannot say he is totally blameless for pushing as hard as he did, despite his ideas being "right", because it doesn't matter how right you are if your enemy is much strong ... Read more

The fact remains that Syria has gone from an intact, functional state to a pile of smouldering ashes, and it was all because of the US/UK.

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.

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.

Yeah, it was an act of war, along with many other Anglo-American moves against Iran, which continue to this day. But that's what imperial powers do - they wage war. Iran has done it, too.

Adult day care is what happens when millions of people get paid to do unproductive jobs the world wouldn't miss if they disappeared tomorrow. The nominally capitalist world is riddled with such BS jobs.

Benefits and gains for Assad? His entire country lies in ruins. Clearly, America won on that front. The only thing they failed to do was get rid of Assad.

Yes, of course the US does want an unstable Iran. Do you think the sanctions are aimed at improving the stability of Iran?

Unstable countries provide opportunities for meddling and intervention, and whatever might follow. This is a very simple and fundamental principle of running an empire. They do ... Read more

"ever since the people of Iran dared to show the AngloZionists to the door"

Oh, is that what happened? Wow... and here I was thinking it was the AngloZionists themselves who showed the Shah the door. Wake up and smell the BS...

The winner in Syria was America. It destroyed another whole country with minimal losses on its own side. We know what America wants - Assad gone.

This is a dumb idea. If they keep going, the US will rip them apart. The only question is, who will be first - Iran or Turkey?

If they want to tear Iran apart, it would make sense. Whether they are actually doing it at the moment is another matter, but there are indications options are being explored.

What makes a better deal depends who you ask. For the US, a better deal surely means Iran submitting to some or all of Pompeo's 12 demands, which would be a very bitter pill for the mullahs to swallow, so we'll see.

There's no point blaming Trump for this. The war against Iran has been raging for far longer than he has been a player. Even the JCPOA itself was just another act of warfare, a project of people who actually wanted war with Iran, not peace.

I think the mullahs were put in a difficult position, because if they refused to negotiate, the tide of global opinion might have turned (further) against them - it would have been construed as proof that Iran wanted nuclear weapons. I also believe the US never wanted a genuine act of diplomacy, and ... Read more

Surely the Americans must know the MEK is not supported by the Iranian people, but they just don't care. They obviously think it won't matter. I think the US has written off the Iranian people as a whole. If they just want to scare the mullahs by wheeling out Maryam Rajavi occasionally, it won';t ma ... Read more
