Once a has-been communist revolutionary, always a has-been communist revolutionary. As usual, the self-inflicted pain of communist stupidity prevents any communist from being honest about anything. It's time for communists to accept the blame for what they did and the reality of their disastrous fai ... Read more

Are you admitting to overthrowing the monarchy in 1979? That means you are to blame for Iran's present state, something which you seem to detest. What an awful mix of conflict must be circulating in your head. Time to accept the blame for what YOU did.

YOU will do no such thing as overthrow this th ... Read more

Funny how 8 years later nothing has changed. So much for a revolution...

Again, how many people hit the streets in 2009? And I'm sorry, but a brief march interrupted by a few magazines worth of bullets isn't going to cut it. There's nothing to see here, folks, not without significant external assistance that for the moment isn't happening.

A tiny fraction of the population is willing to resist the regime. The remaining overwhelming majority is doing less than nothing. By choosing to particupate in the mullahs' system, most Iranians are legiotimising the regime and securing its position. Under such circumstances the Iranian people are ... Read more

If I'm not fooling anyone, I'm glad to be surrounded by a crowd of such intelligent people. We'll leave the fact that if the Iranian general population agrees with your views they certainly aren't showing it aside for now. Yeah, there are many people deemed a threat to the regime languishing behind ... Read more

The fact is that the Iranian people are not getting rid of the mullahs. Not even close. In fact, the majority of Iranians choose through their actions and sometimes even their words to legitimize the regime. For that reason it is obvious that regime change can only come from outside.

Regarding the violations of human rights in Iran, the responsibility does rest primarily with the Iranian people, whom at present are doing very little. In fact, the hard truth is that the people are often as corrupt as their leaders, and Iran is probably no exception. Where do you think that situat ... Read more

Maybe the concessions are worse than those signed a century ago, but there's a difference. A century ago there were how many concessions, how much revenue and where was it going? Who controlled Persian oil reserves? Not the Persians. Compare that to now, and the picture while sharing some similariti ... Read more

The original plan for a neutral or shared Jerusalem having long since fallen by the wayside, I think Jerusalem should be officially recognized as the captial of Israel. Seat of government maybe not.

Go ahead and call it illegal occupation but no-one powerful is going to do anything about it so it's a waste of time. And no, not everything the armed Palestinians have done over the decades of this struggle could in any way be classified as resistance. Ask a Lebanese victim of Palestinian "resistan ... Read more

Domestically, sure the mullahs have been a gift, allowing the country to regress back towards the dark ages - except that they don't allow Western imperial control of Iranian oil and gas reserves, which is definitely a problem. Outside Iran's borders, the mullahs have certainly not been a gift, exce ... Read more

Got it. Blowing things up is not always terrorism. Sometimes it's just the bomb disposal squad doing its job.

I sympathise with the suffering of the Palestinian people, but I think it's time to accept the reality that while the struggle continues, the battle is over and the Arabs lost. There's no nice way of saying it, and it might not be legal, but it's happening anyway. The Arabs were overrun by a superio ... Read more

The risk of war with North Korea might be growing, but that risk is still much lower than that of war with Iran, since Iran is of much greater strategic importance than NK.

The only people who need urgent psychiatric help are the communists who thought they actually had a chance of winning in Iran at the height of the Cold War. It was utter madness; only a pack of over-confident, underexperienced school children could fall into such a delusion, which is exactly what ha ... Read more

Extensive reach? What a joke! Your tentacles were amputated, fried and eaten by the mullahs, one by one, and what a satisfying meal it must have been.

Oh, and justice for failed revolutionaries rarely prevails, especially when communists are in power. I guess in that sense we are lucky you lot los ... Read more

Yep... when I start mentioning some hard truths about the total failure of Iranian communists in the revolution, all you can do is change the subject. It's very telling.

No, it's because - among other reasons - you weren't as popular as you thought. You were outclassed and outgunned.
