    Well said sir,well said.:tup:

    To put the fuel price in perspective,where I`m from its just under $2.50 per liter of petrol.
    I`d just like to state that I agree with everything that you`ve said in your previous posts in both this topic and the other thread dealing with the protests.

    I'm sure you can write 2000 pages about ancient warlord like Cyrus the Great. But your disrespectful posts about Islam- a religion of 1,5 bln people --religion that was voluntarily accepted by Iranians only shows your lack of spirituality.

    LOL. Unlike modern USA, Britain is no longer an imperialistic nation and has no influence in the Middle East, so why they should scream "Marg Bar Ingilis". And of course Brits are such a master of Supreme Leader that he ordered to capture British sailors when they violated Iranian sovereignty by entering Iranian territorial waters back during Ahmadinejad days.

    It is not Christian principles --it is liberal principles.

    For making a revolution, you need millions to get into the streets-----these protests against higher gasoline prices with 10-20 thousand protesters are like a fart against the wind---it will not change regime.

    China is just a customer of Iranian oil. Russians don't sell weapons to Iran but back Assad in Syria because of their own self-interest. The truth is that Iran is truly independent (unlike during the times of Shah)

    This is called politics.

    So you make an excuse for Pahlavi regime even despite they ruled Iran from 1925 and could not make it a literate nation. I can also make an excuse for Islamic Republic by saying that if not US imperialistic sanctions, Iran could have already be a developed nation.

    Being a semicolony of USA with US deploying military bases --this is what you call "being respected and having a better foreign policy". Kissing the *** of USA---this is how you can get respect in modern world. But the truth is that Iran (like Russia and China) is a strong country that has a truly independent foreign policy and it forces everyone around to regard Iranian interests.

    thanks to temporarily high oil prices following Arab oil embargo of 1973

    This is false. Americans didn't know what to do in order to save the Shah. Zbigniew Brzesinski offered the Shah full support if he cruelly cracks down on mass protests. US gave a refuge to the Shah when he left Iran.

    According to World Bank Iran is an upper middle income economy.

    Regarding the wealth gap. Iran's Gini coefficient is 38---nearly comparable to Canada, Italy and Russia, -and lower than Israel, Turkey and USA where Gini coefficient is 41,5.

    So Iran has less wealth gap than USA, Israel and Turkey.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_income_equality

    According to this data Iran's economy was 164 bln$ in 1980....now it is 1,6 trln $--- i/e increase in 10 times over 40 years period....(which gives an average 6% growth per year).....So how 1978 could be better if Iran's economy today is 10 times larger than 40 years ago???

    https://www.indexmundi.com/iran/gdp_(purchasing_power_parity).html

    This is an article by US think tank Stratfor.
    Geopolitics of Iran: Holding the Center of a mountainous fortress
    https://worldview.stratfor.com/article/geopolitics-iran-holding-center-mountain-fortress

    Quote: "
    " But there is a deeper geographic problem. Iran has a huge population mostly located in rugged mountains. Mountainous regions are rarely prosperous. The cost of transportation makes the development of industry difficult. Sparsely populated mountain regions are generally poor. Heavily populated mountain regions, when they exist, are much poorer.

    Iran’s geography and large population make substantial improvements in its economic life difficult.

    The absence of inhabitable plains means that any industrial plant must develop in regions where the cost of infrastructure tends to undermine the benefits. Oil keeps Iran from sinking even deeper, but it alone cannot catapult Iran out of its condition."


    I can also tell you about benefits of having navigable rivers (like Western Europe and North America has) and how they cheapen transportation costs and stimulate trade and economic growth.....Iran lacks navigable rivers and has mountains that hinder economic growth. So you can't compare Iran with South Korea, because these countries have different geographies.

    The size of Turkish economy in 1980 was 150bln$, while Iran had an economy (thanks to high oil prices) of 164bln$. So both countries were comparable.

    https://www.indexmundi.com/turkey/gdp_(purchasing_power_parity).html

    https://www.indexmundi.com/iran/gdp_(purchasing_power_parity).html

    Also note, that Turkey doesn't have oil, while Iranian economy of 1980 was more than 50% based on oil, so even small oil price increase could change Iranian statistics in a better way.

    When a Jewish family from USA sells their 300k dollar house and brings this money together with them to the desert---of course the desert will quickly turn into modern country with robust economy.

    By the time you will be long rotting in grave together with your useless Parsi Pride----the "backward 7th century ideology of no-mad illiterate Beduins" will only expand in the world.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/03/01/islam-will-largest-religion-world-2070-says-report/

    And this is to say that the second largest religion--Christianity is long dead and became just a formality

    Just ignore the idiot. The same "coaches" are going on to become the biggest economy in the world. The device he is using most likely has chinese parts.

    Actually they were trained in friendly western countries and traveled through Turkey to Iran. Turkish and Iranian intelligence figured it out quickly.

    Iranian expats never finance such groups. Some of Iranian expats receive funds from Saudis, zionists, usa to finance their tv channels or their terrorist movements.

    Unlike in 2009 where foreign groups later on hijacked the protest about election results and tried to turn it into some kind of deluded revolution, this time around it was very clear to everyone that foreign sponsored groups were lying in wait for any kind of protest to immediately hijack.

    mal o amvol mardom o be atash keshoondan bi sharaf ha

    The government should have responded more harshly because it's one thing to protest an issue and it's quite another to allow a hand full of morons to start setting car's, buses, banks, buildings, metro stations on fire....

    Total costs of the damages should be divided between all the morons they have so far managed to arrest & the government should go around and confiscate everything they or their parents own with a min sentence of 10 years at least.
