    After safavids, afsharids and zand dynasty, the islamic republic is the most independent government that we have in the past 500 years and nowadays together with China and Russia part of only a few countries who reject becoming a puppet state. Shah wanted to do some things but he was a pussy. He signed NPT and gave up Bahrain easily and he always worried that democrats would remove him. He was weak.
    According to recent polls today majority of Iranians support our defence program, support leaving NPT and support our foreign policy.

    Thugs burned down central bank. Irgc should ready its sniper teams to shoot at anyone with weapons/petrol explosives in their hands.

    You see, That officer was General Qasem Soleimani who got angry and shot General Hajizadeh and General Jafari in the head cause they order him & his firing squad to open fire on the protesting people, and Mostafa Chamran who witnessed the whole event, With tears running from his eyes went on twitter 10 min later and posted what he saw online for it to be reported 5 mins later here.

    Also, In other news, Pakistan COAS got massacred in Tehran, As General Ahmad Kazemi took his Glock and shot General Bajwa in the head and other Pakistani generals in the arm in protest, And then tried to take his own life by shooting himself in the foot.

    The irony, Have you been watching BrainDead lately?

    92% of Iranians support increasing our missile program. What does that say you think?

    So you want to say that pagan liberalism that was originated in ancient Greece and is practiced by the West and you--- is native to Iran? Iran contributed to Islamic civilization more than anyone else. Iran was and remains central to Islamic civilization.

    Regarding "foreign backward ideology" ---do you know what is spirituality? meaning of life? You live this life before you die and turn into ash together with your Parsi pride.... And the best your Parsipride can do while living this life-- is to worship false ideals (like your Parsi pride) instead of real absolute ideals, that have meaning--- like God?

    Regarding "zero benefit to humans in the last 1400 years other than oppression, amputation, murder, and misery"-----And what Westerners brought to humanity except colonialism and exploitation(including of Iran under the Shah), racism, genocide, carpet bombings and millions of murdered from Korean and Vietnam wars to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya?

    They will be around for another 4000 years, because the main problem in Iran is economic in nature and not ideological.

    Islam existed for 1400 years and will exist another 1400 years and more----while communism was a false ideology than survived only for 2 generations and collapsed because it was false.

    If USA did not meddle in the affairs of the Middle East and destabilize/destroy countries of the region---everything could be fine with the region and lives of millions of people.

    Iran was in better shape?
    Under the Shah 65% of the population was illiterate. Today 95% are literate.
    Under the Shah urban population was only 45%. Today urban population is 80% and all this despite the fact that population has more than doubled in 40 years.
    Under the Shah Iran was a semicolony of USA, with US deploying bases in Iran. Today Iran deploys bases in foreign countries.
    I'm not even talking about the enormous wealth gap that was prevalent in Iran under the Shah

    In 1978 statistics from Iran looked nice because of the high oil prices following the Arab oil embargo of 1973. This is temporal effect.

    You should learn about how countries develop, because of their geographic location. Countries that are located close to the sea grow economically faster than landlocked countries, because they have access to international trade and ability to cheaply export their goods via sea. South Korea and Israel are like this.

    Iran, however is a country with major cities located far away from the coastline with mountains separating Iranian cities from the coast. Developing infrastructure in mountains is difficult and expensive and mountainous geography hinders economic growth. But Iran has oil that allows it to compensate for geographic difficulties.

    So the real comparison is not Israel or South Korea----real comparison is Iran and Turkey.

    Turkey has no oil, but most Turkish cities are located near the coastline, making exports to the nearby 500mln populated EU via sea easy and cost effective---they produce goods in Istanbul or Bursa or Izmir, upload the good to the ship and cheaply export them to the EU and their economy grows.

    Iran doesn't have this advantage, but Iran has oil.

    So Iran and Turkey (which is not a theocracy) can be compared as two biggest Middle Eastern powers.

    And Iran is comparable to Turkey and in the field of military industry is far ahead of Turkey.

    Iran builds 1,5 mln cars a year. Iran is regional leader in petrochemicals, Iran has most advanced military industry in the region (and unlike Israel, Iran builds submarines, helicopters, aircraft, cruise missiles etc.), Iran is in top 9 space launching countries in the world. Iran has a diversified and self-sufficient industry and all this despite harsh sanctions and obstacles created by USA with its powerful Jewish lobby.

    First outproduce and compete with Turkey that for the sake of comparison has not a "bankrupt ideology of a phony totalitarian police state"

    Iran is shackled by sanctions because of its independent foreign policy and because of US imperialism. Imagine what Iran could become if not US sanctions and bullying by US.

    It has survived this long despite all the pressure by US, because of its internal strength

    It’s funny once there is any significant amount of protests the entire Instagram/Twitter/etc blows up about Iranian “rights”.

    What rights? Suddenly gasoline prices are there “right”? Iran already has THE LOWEST GASOLINE PRICES IN THE Middle East. I mean what would these kir khars do if they lived in EU where it’s like $7-8 dollars a gallon for gas.

    Also people saying about hijab being strict. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? First of all Iranian woman are some of the most Kharab woman I have ever seen in my life. Tehran has more prostitutes than Las Vegas and Red Light District combined. Iranian woman were selling sex in the UAE (Dubai) so much that they had to make visas harder.

    Already Iranian women enjoy much more freedoms than most Arab countries. Hijab is barely enforced at this point and montoes have basically disappeared.

    If these people’s lives are so pathetic that they think a removal hijab will change their Misfortunes they need to open their damn eyes. Jordan and Egypt are under ZERO SANCTIONS and suffering more so than Iran which is under draconian sanctions.

    Honestly it boggles my mind how stupid some of my fellow countrymen are. They think if alcohol, clubs, and McDonald’s are in Iran suddenly the entire problem is solved. Already Tehran has more drugs, alcohol, and parties than Vegas.

    But hey let’s destroy an entire country just to see what happens next. I mean it worked so well in other countries and worked so well for Iran in 1979.

    damn idiots

    Now I see where you're coming after having reflected upon my own perspective and realizing I really didn't know what I was talking about entirely. Sorry for some of things I said earlier, hopefully no hard feelings.
