(@RaminJalali25) – Sometimes reading the news coming from Iran, I wonder if we really are living in 21 century; are we experiencing a nightmare; or passing through a wormhole, as some sophisticated physicists explain in science-fiction movies, we have traveled back in time to medieval ages. On the eve of the Iran twin elections on February 26 where the candidates for both Parliament and the Assembly of Experts ought to be elected, Khamenei, the Iranian regime’s Supreme leader, is desperately trying to conceal frantic Iran society seeking basic democratic rights and economic improvement by resorting to barbaric, degrading public punishments.
(@raminjalali25) “Iranian regime is faced with a variety of economic crises which could lead to “threats” against the regime by Iran’s young restive population”, said Eshaq Jahangiri, who is top deputy to Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani. “Iran has a large young population. If we are unable to solve their problems, this opportunity will switch into a threat”. These were Jahangir’s words reported by the State-run Tasnim News Agency on January 4. Although it is a habit by officials in the Iranian regime to conceal the problems they are facing, but the situation has become so tough that Rouhani’s top deputy has to come out and warn about the “threat”. Nevertheless, the confession made by Jahangiri is just the tip of an iceberg.
Iranian officials have to meet elaborate security measures before any visit to any universities within the country. Hassan Rouhani, the president, has to deploy multiple number of suppressive forces as he is detested enough in Iran for his deceptions and hollow promises. In the latest event Rouhani spoke, recently, to a group of high school students who were forcibly gathered in the city of “Rey” in the outskirt of capital Tehran.
The United Nations General Assembly voted on Thursday, December 17th to passed a resolution strongly condemning Iran’s horrific and systematic human rights violations — especially group and arbitrary executions, increasing violence and discrimination against women and religious and ethnic minorities.(1) This is the 62nd U.N. resolution against the atrocious violations committed by the mullahs ruling Iran. While such measures are completely necessary, it is high time to take serious and practical measures for the mullahs to finally pay the cost of such atrocities. One major step would be to refer Iran’s gross human rights violations dossier to the U.N. Security Council and International Criminal Court to place the ruling mullahs before justice.
I’d like to make a joke about the fallout were already getting from the nuclear deal with Iran but I just made it.
It’s just like fucking clock work, these guys are obviously going to spin the shit out of how terror-heavy this whole deal is to them before they’ve read the details.
Netanyahu is doing his best to make these bold assertions that it’s the worst deal in history and his parade of slutty Republicans fall right in line.
A report by the New York Times starts off with:
Before Congress had even begun its official review, Republican leaders vowed Tuesday to kill President Obama’s nuclear accord with Iran, setting up a fierce fight to save the president’s signature diplomatic achievement.
It reads that congress will have sixty days to review the deal but my guess is that they’re not even going to read the fucker; they’re going to sit on it for sixty days, make up a lot of bullshit to get a lot of good people scared and stand by it to vote no.
Even when we go further into the article, it shows that there are going to be plenty of opportunities to do this because Republican Bob Corker says:
“In the end, those who believe this truly is going to keep Iran from getting a nuclear weapon will vote for it. Those who believe that is not the case, and the world is not going to be safer — in some ways it may pave the way for them to get a nuclear weapon — will vote against it.”
So what he’s saying here is the same thing we already know, which is how a bill is voted on. Basically, if you believe it’s not going to make Iran a threat, then that person will vote for it and if someone doesn’t believe that, then they’ll vote against it.
What is this, government 101? You’ve got to be fucking kidding me!?
But as we’ve seen well over the past going on seven years, the power of conviction isn’t fueled by facts. Which is why they have the teabaggers there, the house idiots who they might successfully convince to believe it’s just going give more power to Iran.
Actually, they don’t have to be convinced, they’re already as dumb as — well, a teabagger!
At the end of the article, it looks the they have the same predictions I have about how all of this will turns out, especially when it comes to winning over Democrats in the opposition.
Congress Versus The World
I can already see through the conservatives’ game. They know in their mind that this is a good deal and yet they get really worked up about it for their constituents.
I guess that if you’re going to make a career out of something, than make it out of something you don’t really believe in that pays well.
But I’m not sure that’s doing anything more than providing some cushioning for why they do what they do.
In any case, don’t get duped by their bullshit because — in case you haven’t been doing your research — the U.S. wasn’t the only one who agreed to this, so did a handful of other nations: China, Russia, France, the UK and Germany.
Slate’s Fred Kaplan did two things in his post: “Why Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Neocons Hate the Iran Deal“, the first being that he annoyed the shit out of me when he started using pundit shop talk with the phrase Zero-sum game; the second was to point out that all of these chumps opposing the deal aren’t really chumps at all when they’re actually opposing the deal for more boring reasons.
It’s kind of like Star Wars Episode One where we wanted to see more action and less about the trade deals.
All of this seems to be true as India is expressing excitement over this whole thing.
This administration has two historic deals already moving into play, the one with Cuba where new business ventures are already beginning to stream in and with the weakening of sanctions, we’re likely to have the same thing with Iran but there’s still bound to be some hurdles to overcome as the Islamic republic also has its hawks.
What’s super crystal fucking clear is that America simply can’t be doing what it’s been doing for its entire history. It’s time for some Goddamn diplomacy.
As we all know a deal was just recently announced with Iran that has a lot of us sighing with relief, if only for the simple fact that we’re sick of giving Republicans a reason to keep talking shit.
Well, at least talking shit before a deal was struck because they’ll only continue to do so until the end of this administration, we already know they’re not going to STFU.
Netanyahu is already spinning shit like a boss.
But that a deal was made and under the Obama presidency — unless someone waffles within hours to days from it — with Kerry involved, which is going to certainly set him up with credit for it and some to Zarif to send back to the Iranian hardliners.
The fact is that it’s another win for POTUS and not an embarrassment because for a little bit there, it looked like a pattern of extending deadlines was forming and just last night — based off of my assertion from the PBS news hour report, it looked like a pretty good chance we were heading there.
The main follow up to this report is the idea that congress is going to try and block the deal. There’s no way that they’re not going to try but let’s imagine for a bit that Democrats soften their opposition to this deal and throw their support behind the administration? I see another loss for Republicans coming super ‘fucking’ soon.
So far, I’ve watched FRONTLINE’s The Fight For Yemen twice this week. A second viewing convinced me that people in that region tend to exaggerate a lot of what happens out there. In one scene where the reporter records a group who says that the Houthis destroyed their homes and ran them into the wilderness, might be exaggerating or lying. They seem to be overjoyed with the chaos there and even though the program leaves that lingering question as to whether the Houthis are as ruthless as the people in the program said they are, FRONTLINE’S Special On Yemen Doesn’t Tell Us Anything We Don’t Already Know.
