"Interrupting the usual barrage of headlines about nuclear warheads and oil rigs, the self-taught photographer offers rare views from inside his country’s historic buildings, baths, mosques and ancient ruins. For many outdoor images, Ganji shoots at night to capture Iran’s crystalline starlit sky."
Mohammad Reza Domiri Ganji is a 25-year-old Iranian physics student. But he spends his free time obsessing over how to make photos that will reveal Iran’s architectural heritage and natural beauty to the rest of the world.

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.

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.

"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.

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 stronger than you - you're probably going to lose.

Notwithstanding their differences, Mossadegh, MRP and the mullahs have one thing in common - they were/are not afraid to push the boundaries of Anglo-American imperial tolerance, and get smacked down. Sixty five years later, Iran has still not found its place in the modern world.

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.

If you follow what was said it would have been obvious that Iran is not United States, Trump is not Khamenie, Zarif is not Pompeo or Bolton.
Trump and his team are trying to make life hell for Iranians Zarif is trying to save what is left of the Iran Deal.
Which side are you on:
Sanctions, starvation, war or peaceful coexistance?
The overthrow of the Iranian government is not possible or wise for the Iranian people inside Iran, for the Iranians living in the United States and neither for Americans .

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.

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.

Who Let The Dogs Out?
They saw an article about a man who is pushing back against Trump's war machine, Mr. Zarif that is, and lost control.
The rabid islamophobe,
The forever troll who doesn't read or write Persian
The leftist who is dreaming of regime change by a miracle or may be Trump.
And as for the rest, they are non-responsive, busy copying and pasting.

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.

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.

1. Zarif was not even born when Mosadegh was overthrown.
2. The reforms happen gradually and not overnight. Zarif is a reformist and is serving as the foreign minister in a reformist/centerist government in Iran.
3. So let's not confuse Khamenie and Zarif. Let's not confuse Khamenie and Rouhani because:
4. Misinformation on social media including Facebook and Twitter, among others, helped Trump and Putin to be in the White House.

This is what Iranians who live in the United States have to deal with; the rise of the racists and neo-nazis on the streets and in the White House.

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.

Among the winners in the tragic War in Syria are the people in the Middle East.
How so?
They are less likely to be fooled by the Western Powers propaganda for regime change. Not to be food by their talk about freedom, human rights and democracy while their bombs are being dropped on Yemeni, Palestinian children.
