Islamic Republic’s masters of disaster are no match for
the Iranian people with Internet access

The Islamic Republic’s two-prong strategy of chaos to remain in power involves
destruction of Iranian heritage and culture while using Iranian people’s
national funds to support projects in troubled countries beset by corrupt
regimes or extreme poverty. Of course, buying followers and believers from among
the most miserable parts of the world is not the invention of a bunch of
backwards clergy sitting in Qom, but rather an old and effective method of
spreading an ideology.

The Islamic Republic's thugs on patrol against civil
Since its inception in 1979, the Islamic Republic has
systematically attacked Iranian culture, history and heritage, while emotionally
and physically abusing the people. This involves erasure of factual history,
religious and superstitious indoctrination, using thugs to raid private homes
and arrest people on whims, planting moles in various Western lobby groups to
downplay the anti-civilization aspects of an Islamic regime, and donating funds
to Western universities to spread a false notion of cultural tolerance between
societies that have empowered their people versus Islamic societies that survive
by choking the masses.
As a reminder to the professors of appeasement and
liberality, human civil rights are not based on culture; they are universal and
not subject to time or venue. As the American hero of the 1906 Iranian
Constitutional Revolution Howard Baskerville (1885-1909) said in response to the
U.S. government’s request to stay out of the conflict, “[t]he only difference
between me and these people is my place of birth, and this is not a big
Since the ideology of Islam does not recognize any
boundaries or any other language/history than Arabic, then it is very easy to
follow this basis to destroy a people’s national identity. That is the first
step in being able to control the masses. The Islamic Republic holds promotion
and exportation of Islam above all else. Therefore, it is fair game to steal the
Iranian people’s money for that purpose. In that endeavor, its agents will do
whatever it takes to stay in power.
This is why the regime in Tehran upon usurping power
first assaulted Iranian women (half of the population) before spreading its
reign of terror to incorporate non-Islamist men (an overwhelming majority of
Iranian men especially those under the age of 30) and minorities in general.
Dividing and terrorizing a society is the fastest way to establish control.
According to surveys
conducted by the United Nations, International Monetary Fund, Fund for Peace,
and World Health Organization (cited in Wikipedia’s “International Rankings of
Iran”), under an Islamic government following Koranic rules on how to operate a
country in modern era, Iran now ranks as second in drug usage, first in suicide
rate, first in brain drain, first in child execution, one of the lowest holders
of human civil rights record, fourth in having least valued currency unit, and
in the “failed state” index out of 177.
By keeping the Iranian people under severe duress, poor
and stripped of historical significance, the Islamists can better use the
country’s resources for their own benefit. Additionally, to stay in power, the
regime has to pay its dues to foreign forces, and maintain a group of low-life
allies such as Hugo Chavez to exert some pressure as needed. By signing
treasonous contracts practically giving away the nation’s abundant natural
resources to others, the Islamic Republic buys time from the Free World who
benefit from such lopsided deals for a short time as nothing free comes without
conditions. And placing sanctions on the Islamic Republic only means the regime
is forced to pay black market prices for goods and services which further bleed
the Iranian people; no sweat off the regime’s back!
By spending Iran’s wealth on building infrastructures
and Islamic cultural centers in Tajikistan, building homes in Venezuela, sending
aid to Somalia, providing oil to India on extended and unlimited credit, and the
like, the Islamic Republic influences nations under corrupt regimes, poverty and
vulnerability to find followers and supporters.
By providing military and financial aid to criminal and
illegitimate dictators such as Bashar Assad in Syria as well as terrorist groups
such as Hizbullah and Hamas, the Islamic Republic insures its unlimited supply
of mercenaries ready to pounce on the Iranian people at popular uprisings as
witnessed since June 2009.
While the regime is causing mayhem galore, another
Islamist group in exile, the Mujahedin (MKO or PMOI), is paying tens of
thousands of dollars to top U.S. and European officials to support them as a
so-called alternative opposition to the mullahs in Tehran. It is difficult to
comprehend the European logic behind this besides some leftover colonialism
myopia, but the American officials are about to memorialize the 10 year
anniversary of 9/11. Do they wish to put the American public through more of
these horrific Islamic terrorist acts on U.S. soil? Supporting Islamist groups
such as the MKO will keep the American public safety right down that road
requiring continued overseas military engagement.
The global public understands the need for governments
that work for and are beholden to the people. It is time for the government
officials of the Free World to get it too. Since world order is never static, it
is important to select options that bring the least damaging shift to global
peace and progress of humanity while recognizing national interests. Such an
option with respect to Iran and the Middle East does not exist from among the
Islamic Republic regime, its various factions such as the Green Movement, or
Islamists in exile such as MKO (PMOI).
Only secular nationalists will work for the betterment
of a country and advancement of global relations. With the information Age, the
nature of the general public has also changed. It can better and more easily set
up offenses and defenses against criminal regimes set on sacrificing the people
for ideologies and personal gains. Hence, the Islamic Republic and its
billionaire clergymen are hanging on their last lifeline.
It is time that the U.S. policymakers put aside outdated
strategies and stand with the Iranian people in their endeavor to obtain freedom
from an unwanted occupying force by providing them with full and complete access
to social networking tools such as the internet so they can better organize and
mobilize. Supporting democracy among a people, who are historically
pro-modernization and share values similar to the West, also guarantees better
long-term investment returns for the American public.
