Perhaps unlikely, but one should always keep one’s eyes open … ————— “On a cold March night in southwestern Virginia in 2003, one week prior to the United States invasion of Iraq, I filed into a packed auditorium of 2,000 students, including the entire corps of Virgina Tech military cadets dressed in white pants, white [...]

… As is Obummerz. Look at that “defiant” picture of Obama. I don’t think any photo in recent weeks has gotten me this angry, not even Ahmadinejad’s (I am too used to him). The nuclear issue is a NON-ISSUE. It’s Ahmadinejad’s plaything, and the “courageous” West loves to play along.

I’m not going to lie: watching the interview made me nauseaous, so I only watched a few minutes (NBC/Ann Curry’s “interview” with Ahmadinejad). You can get a real analysis at Enduring America. But “Mr. President, did you steal the election?” Anyone who knows diddly squat about Ahmadinejad, knows that that’s NOT the way you question [...]

EVIL

Be very, VeRy, VERY weary of all the new “Iranian TV channels” that are sprouting like venomous mushrooms to “help” the “plight of democracy in Iran.” This $55 Million has to go somewhere. I just hope (in vain) that the Iranian authorities smarten up and begin to open state media to a hint of critique. [...]

Ghods Day

  Ayatollah Khomeini named the last Friday of every Ramadan Ghods Day (Roozeh Ghods) in which demonstrations are held throughout the country after the prayer in support of the Palestinian cause (there’s a famous letter he wrote about this which I’m just too bored and disinterested to translate.) The pictures above are from last year’s [...]

  Max Ajl has a critique of Zizek’s article on the events in Iran up on his website. I don’t necessarily agree with all his criticisms, but reading it through made me think long and hard. I started writing a reply to his post, but then decided not to litter his space more than I [...]

  May I remind you, for better or worse, Iranians led a revolution thirty years ago without your generous, murderous help. To all those who are quick to praise the wonder that is the “twitter/facebook/myspace/shit revolution”, remind me of ONE positive gift this technological marvel of fast food fascism has bestowed us Iranians. This is [...]

  I have usually turned to Al Jazeera for a more balanced look at world news. “Usually” because long before the June 12th election, I was always a bit uncomfortable with their reporting on Iran. It always seemed to have that hint of foul play, especially since I know quite a bit about Khuzestan on [...]

I bet THIS won’t playing out 24/7 on CNN. And I doubt Nico the Clown and friends will be hovering over this story like vultures out for lunch. While they are busy picking and chewing and pulling at the body of the dead in Iran, they won’t “have time” to notice the hundreds upon hundreds [...]

In this wild, media Blitzkrieg, in this age of misinformation and blood thirsty hypocrisy,  I have always turned to progressive outlets for at least a GLIMPSE of the truth. But the very people who have carved a career and a voice out of exposing the blood and evil behind the military-industrial complex in the Western [...]

In this blog, I am not going to waste my time talking about irrelevant butchers and psychopaths like the MSM or Prince of Darkness himself, Reza Pahlavi. I have not watched a single MINUTE of this whole charade on TV and will NEVER do so. But it strikes me as quite odd that the only [...]

  I’ve never been that fond of the mediocre Iranian “scholar” Reza Aslan. Anyone who is a regular of Anderson Cooper’s 360 can’t be particularly enlightening or insightful. But he had never struck me as being a complete douchebag either … Until now. This man is quite possibly the most DISHONEST AND DESPICABLE man to [...]

This moment, I want to know NOTHING more than the actual results of this election. If not anything, with an 81% turnout rate, it would give me a good mirror into what Iran is like today. That, we will never know. But since I’ve been only been writing from my own perspective the last few [...]

Oh why oh WHY is Zahra Rahnavard constantly compared to Michelle Obama? Why are some women’s rights activists within Iran saluting the idea of her being our first “first lady”? The biggest issue here is not that they are trying to sell Michelle Obama like Calvin Klein underwear or McDonald’s where she becomes just another [...]

I hate the word “green” nowadays. It is overused, overhyped, sexed up, banalized, trivialized and screwed a million times over. It has become just one more excuse to sell us things we don’t need and one more ludicrous cause of politicians and celebrities alike. But, interestingly enough, this is a sample of my friends list [...]

Consider this: 1. A Math Problem: Google a couple of names: · “Roxana Saberi” Number of Results = 3.93 million (this is yesterday’s result, I believe last week it was something around 2.5 million) · “Ibrahim Jassam” Number of Results = 5,200 (FYI, Freelance Journalist. Imprisoned, by US forces since Sep. 08, without any trial [...]

The epitome of humane gorgeousness I will always and forever attribute to the one and only Gregory Peck. But moving on to the realm of politics … Who are Iran’s best looking politicians? In the past four years, Iranian politics, at least as far as the nauseating world “media” is concerned, has been dominated by [...]
