    ولی این مصاحبه رو گفتم که اصلا حرفهاش درست نیست و یه جریاناتی که کلا واضح است رو میخواد به شکل متغایر نشون بده
    چند تا اشتباه تاریخی و جغرافیایی تو یک مصاحبه برای یک ادمی که ادعای کارشناسی میکنه زشته
    مگر همانطور که عقاب گفت خودش میدونه ولی بخاطر اینکه پول بگیره کس و شعر میگه
    در این صورت بزار یه لقمه نون بخوره زن و بچه داره حرومه بیکار بشه

    Amir Taheri is quite educated. yet the problem with him is that he is paid by some of the arab media which are sponsored by wealthy oligarchs in Arab countries.
    So he ain't exactly independent.

    in general when it comes to middle east analysis, i rather not listen to iranians. because they just repeat talking points heard in the western press.
    it is easier to just go directly to trough an drink from the talking points directly.

    Amir Taheri embarrassed himself when he got peddling fake news years ago in the National Post (Canadian News). it was so bad that an anti-Iran paper had to issue a retraction.

    You write off a reporter for a mistake that was made 10 years ago?

    the reality is starting to sink in some stubborn heads.

    https://s.yimg.com/lo/api/res/1.2/gZ...65c0034e0ff1ff

    Until now, Shiite Iran had met with only limited success trying to expand its influence across the mostly Sunni Islamic world, despite the call decades ago to “export the revolution” by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution.

    But today – on the back of years of Iranian military intervention to fight ISIS and bolster its allies abroad, years of diminishing US leadership, and repeatedly outsmarting and outmuscling its chief regional rival, Sunni Saudi Arabia – Iran has emerged as the dominant power in the region.

    One narrative of the modern Middle East is of potentates trying to stamp their imprint across these often volatile states. From Egypt’s Pan-Arabist Gamal Abdel Nasser, to Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, to the theocrats in Tehran today, the region has served as the world’s premier crucible for rulers to forge geopolitical hegemony, often with failed results. This is to say nothing of the intrusive meddling of the US, Russia, and other outside powers over the decades.

    But now Iran has achieved milestones of leverage and influence that rival any regional power in the past half-century. While there are limits to how far it can extend its authority, Tehran’s rapid rise poses new challenges to the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia as it undermines their previous dominance. In a region already reeling from multiple wars, the residue of the Arab Spring uprisings, and a deepening Sunni-Shiite divide, the fundamental question is this: How far can Tehran extend its reach?
