    After 13 years, thank you..

    I first came to this site, then called Persian Gulf Soccer, in 1997, when I was a totally different person than who I am today. And after many hours of posts, debates, and simply reading others views, it's time for me to move on. I wanted to thank you all for your views and contributions to this...

    greatly appreciate the translation! I personally doubt the mafia coup idiots can start killing that number, it's a very different time and Iran's changed tremendously. They'd have to have 100% of the Sepah and Artesh on their side which they definitely don't. I think if they had that much...

    Jan 3rd News/Discussions

    I doubt it. China, unlike the IRI, decided to be smart and after Mao died enacted huge reforms which still continue to this day. Iran could've done the same if Burrito decided to listen to Khatami and side with him rather than with the hardliners like Tesbah Yazdi. If that had happened, even the...

    RoozbehAzadi has a Great Idea

    Masoud-jan thanks but the credit really goes to The_Referee and BachehTehroon in the Romanian thread. To be honest, I didn't even know about the Romanians doing this before, but it's ingenius and would really embarrass the mullahs with their "63%" lol.

    A question to older members please

    Oldman-jan I hope you stay because even though I disagree with you on constitutional monarchy, I appreciate your views. I really hope you don't leave and continue to contribute. What you said about the 1906 constitutional revolution movement makes sense, since as you said during the Shah's time...

    A question to older members please

    Mark Twain once said that "History never repeats itself but sometimes it rhymes." And so I don't see the current events as being a repeat of 30+ years ago, but they do seem to rhyme. My question to the older members here is what does the current situation rhyme with? Is it the early 70s, mid...

    It's been 6 months. What about 1 year?

    Less affluent people have already joined the protests in sizable numbers, and they have been nation-wide. That's what separates this from 1999 when it was mostly students. If you look at the updates pages, especially from over the weekend, you'll find quite a number of pics of people who don't...

    It's been 6 months. What about 1 year?

    Sarbaz-jan, I have a feeling that the demonstrations that started against the (s)election which have now morphed into nation-wide protests and civil disobedience, will eventually become much bigger resistance, including armed resistance. I know lordofmordor and others say that if the people...

    RoozbehAzadi has a Great Idea

    Man it works a helluva lot better than boycotting. I don't know why this hasn't been proposed yet? Maybe the Green leaders are afraid of violence, but it would happen no matter when they demonstrate as we saw on Ashura. Plus I'd be willing to be that many of those given "incentives" or bussed in...

    It's been 6 months. What about 1 year?

    Nilu-jan, Iran will be bigger than China in terms of investment if the regime changes. 10 years ago Iranians outside of Iran had $600 Billion in net worth. Now after many more have left, that number is probably close to $1 Trillion. Add to that all the oil companies that will compete to bring...

    December 30th News (Perhaps black Wednesday)

    Guys, just imagine if today hundreds of thousands of people came out with Khomeini pics and the IRI flag and then once in the middle of the demonstration, started yelling "marg bar diktator" and "marg bar khamenei." What could they do then? They can't shoot cause they'll have to kill pro-regime...

    December 30th News (Perhaps black Wednesday)

    This was a wasted chance for the Greens. They could've come out in the hundreds of thousands or even over 1 million and overwhelmed the rest, most of whom needed incentives to be there. Instead of rejecting these pro-regime demonstrations they need to join them and then start yelling marg bar...

    Is Romanian Revolution Possible?

    As far as people joining pro-regime protests and then coming out and overwhelming the minority with their numbers, holding up signs of Azadi and yelling Marg bar diktator, I'm all for that and it's an ingenius strategy, certainly much better than avoiding them and letting the government pay...
