Seeing the facts about Iran’s recent problems

Those who are able to see straight are able to see that the recent troubles Iran has experienced since June 2009 are not those of a freedom or human rights movement, rather one that’s aim is to destabilize Iran in preparation for an invasion, and failing that weaken Iran where it can not play a major role in World affairs. There are some that think that when people say this they are crazy, however those people are stupid and uninformed, and need to look at the facts harder. Here I will present the basics behind the facts.

Those that say that this is a human rights movement need to ask themselves some important questions. First, if human rights has been a long standing issue then why have there not been riots for years in Iran? If conditions are as bad as are claimed then Iran’s population would never have tolerated it for any length of time. Plus amnesty international and other groups which report on human rights have not always reported the truth about Iranian “atrocity” stories or Iranian affairs. They do not mention facts like how honor killings and other female abuse stories are confined only to Iran’s practicing muslim population, or how branches of groups like the Persian cultural foundation are nonexistent. Then again seeing how that amnesty international has recently been packed by Iranians who spew such lies it is not surprising, yet all the same it is disgusting and disgraceful. If you question my reasoning consider this. Many of these same Iranians have been long opponents of war with America and Israel, though many of them have avoided taking any direct action and instead relied on the actions of others. Second, most Iranian groups were shut down and harassed as political groups because they did not spew the negative image that many in gpvernment and positions of power in the west have of Iran and Iranians. Along comes these uprisings in Iran under the guise of the green movement and all of a sudden those who support the green movement do not face negative stigma, as if to personify hajji baba for the 21st century.

The argument that it is a freedom movement fails when one asks, like above, why there were no mass uprisings before the June 2009 elections? Furthermore consider the uprisings were backed and instigated by politicians inside and outside of Iran who have had connections with the cia and the council on foreign relations. People forget that mousavi was a long time crony of khomeini, and we need not go into detail about the backing the cia gave khomeini during the revolution. The same is true for rafsanjani and mohammed forouzandeh, two people who have helped shape the image of Iran as a nightmare state the way Milosevic did for Yugoslavia, cronies all yet falsely portrayed as freedom fighters. It should be no coincidence that mousavi’s cousin is CinC of Iran’s Air Force, in other words in a position where he could effect Iran’s safety in the event of an invasion the same way members of Iraq’s military betrayed Saddam Hussein in 2003. Nor should we forget how reza pahlavi and farah diba pahlavi have come out in support of the green movement, tarnishing any legitimacy they have to their claim as iran’s deposed ruling house and tarnishing Royalists and Monarchists, not to mention iran’s aristocratic families who can trace their ancestry to Iran’s previous ruling houses.

Even were the masses of Iranians not direct collaborators of the cia and cfr they certainly have been influenced by their works. Since the 1990’s the majority of Iranians who have travelled to America and the west have done so as students. Those students who prosper do so not so much by good grades but by debasing their heritage and going along with every negative stereotype of Iranians the west creates. This group is isolated from Iranians who travelled to the west before the revolution socially, except for immediate family, and tends to take high paying jobs and to piss cash on useless luxuries, exemplifying the worst stereotypes of westerners. Furthermore, they have not taken a serious interest in other groups who have been disenfranchised and victimized by American and western actions. Rather once they achieve wealth and material possessions they fell they are successful and care about nobody else. This attitude has cost the green movement the support of the very activist groups who assisted the Iranian community in preventing an invasion.

Those who can’t look at the facts are doomed to fail. One of the greatest problems with Iranian civilization is that when things get tough most Iranians choose to escape into the world of excuses rather than face harsh reality. This is what is happening again and we need to wake up, face harsh reality, and get ourselves together or face extinction.
