Stay Out Of Persia!


Iran (Persian: ایران‎ Irān [ʔiːˈɾɒːn] (About this sound listen)), also known as Persia[10] (/ˈpɜːrʒə/),[11] officially the Islamic Republic of Iran (Persian: جمهوری اسلامی ایران‎ Jomhuri-ye Eslāmi-ye Irān (About this sound listen)),[12] is a sovereign state in Western Asia.[13][14] With about 81 million inhabitants,[6] Iran is the world’s 18th-most-populous country.[15] Comprising a land area of 1,648,195 km2 (636,372 sq mi), it is the second-largest country in the Middle East and the 17th-largest in the world. Iran is bordered to the northwest by Armenia, the Republic of Azerbaijan,[a] and the Azerbaijani exclave of Nakhchivan; to the north by the Caspian Sea; to the northeast by Turkmenistan; to the east by Afghanistan and Pakistan; to the south by the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman; and to the west by Turkey and Iraq. The country’s central location in Eurasia and Western Asia, and its proximity to the Strait of Hormuz, give it geostrategic importance.[16] Tehran is the country’s capital and largest city, as well as its leading economic and cultural center.

Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations,[17][18] beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. It was first unified by the Iranian Medes in the seventh century BC,[19] and reached its greatest extent during the Achaemenid Empire founded by Cyrus the Great in the sixth century BC, stretching from Eastern Europe to the Indus Valley, becoming a larger empire than previously ever existed in the world.[20] The Iranian realm fell to Alexander the Great in the fourth century BC, but reemerged shortly after as the Parthian Empire, followed by the Sasanian Empire, which became a leading world power for the next four centuries.[21][22]

Arab Muslims conquered the empire in the seventh century AD, ultimately leading to the displacement of the indigenous faiths of Zoroastrianism and Manichaeism with Islam. Iran made major contributions to the Islamic Golden Age that followed, producing many influential figures in art and science. After two centuries, a period of various native Muslim dynasties began, which were later conquered by the Turks and the Mongols. The rise of the Safavids in the 15th century led to the reestablishment of a unified Iranian state and national identity,[4] which followed the country’s conversion to Shia Islam, marking a turning point in Iranian and Muslim history.[5][23] By the 18th century, under Nader Shah, Iran briefly possessed what was arguably the most powerful empire at the time.[24] The 19th-century conflicts with the Russian Empire led to significant territorial losses.[25][26] Popular unrest culminated in the Constitutional Revolution of 1906, which established a constitutional monarchy and the country’s first legislature. Following a coup instigated by the United Kingdom and the United States in 1953, Iran gradually became closely aligned with the West, and grew increasingly autocratic.[27] Growing dissent against foreign influence and political repression led to the 1979 Revolution, which followed the establishment of an Islamic republic,[28] a political system which includes elements of a parliamentary democracy vetted and supervised by a theocracy governed by an autocratic “Supreme Leader”.[29] During the 1980s, the country was engaged in a war with Iraq, which lasted for almost nine years and resulted in a high number of casualties and financial loss for both sides.

According to international observers, the current Iranian regime (led by Ali Khamenei since 1989) is oppressive, with human rights abuses commonplace.[30] Since the 2000s, Iran’s controversial nuclear program has raised concerns, which is part of the basis of the international sanctions against the country. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, an agreement reached between Iran and the P5+1, was created on July 14, 2015, aimed to loosen the nuclear sanctions in exchange for Iran’s restriction in producing enriched uranium.

Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, NAM, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power,[31][32] and its large reserves of fossil fuels – which include the world’s largest natural gas supply and the fourth-largest proven oil reserves[33][34] – exert considerable influence in international energy security and the world economy.

The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the third-largest number in Asia and eleventh-largest in the world.[35] Iran is a multicultural country comprising numerous ethnic and linguistic groups, the largest being Persians (61%), Azeris (16%), Kurds (10%), and Lurs (6%).

Democrats and neocons both want Trump to invade Iran, but for different reasons. 15 years ago Neocons were saying, “Anyone can go to Baghdad. Real men go to Tehran.” They won’t be happy until we are bogged down in multiple unwinnable wars.

Democrats, on the other hand, just want Trump to get bogged down in an unwinnable war.

It starts like this: “We need to support peaceful revolution in Iran.”

That sounds nice, but what do they mean by “support?” Do we send guns or do we just clap and cheer? What happens when the Iranian government starts to crush the protests with force?

“We cannot abandon them!”

WE HAVE NO BUSINESS IN PERSIA. People protesting the Iranian government do not necessarily love America. The most likely outcome of a successful revolution would be a new dictator who could even be worse than what they have now.

This is an internal problem and the Persian people need to resolve it by themselves. I wish the people of Persia well. Hopefully we can soon welcome Persia back into the league of civilized nations.

Until then, we need to stay the hell out of Persia.


I meant to add that we cannot trust ANY of the reporting coming out of Iran. I wouldn’t trust the CIA or Twitter either. The Mossad probably has good sources, but I trust Israel to do whatever is best for Israel, not what is best for the US or Iran.

    If they can’t get Trump to pick up this tar baby they will try to blame him for doing nothing.

        I wonder why they gave his dad a pass on the “divorce” thing? Unless something catastrophic happens to the Royal family, I don’t think we have to worry about Harry and the Markle.

        • elliesmom says:

          I’m guessing when the Queen dies, Charles has agreed to step aside for William. If Charles should go first, then his divorce won’t ever be an issue. I don’t think the Queen would stand for Carmella to become Queen, but there’s no reason to make an issue of it until the time comes.

        Prince Harry really stepped in it when he stated the Royals are the “family she never had” like that is a good thing. Did her dad talk with his mistress while on his honeymoon with her mother? Was her father recorded wishing he could be his mistress’s tampon?

        Going to be awkward at the wedding when her father walks her down the aisle to “give her away” to Harry!

        What a bunch of disfunctional, inbred, entitled good-for-nothing not-even-english germanic posers. Thank goodness for 1776 when we defeated the British and their hired Hessians.

          You forgot “parasitic”. Dr. Dr. Mrs Propertius, who as a Canadian has the misfortune to have the Queen of England as her unelected Head of State (with veto powers over the acts of her elected government), likes to refer to the monarchy as “a barbaric anachronism”. She omits the obvious present participle out of an excess of politeness.

          Personally, I’ve got nothing against Betty, Phil, Chuck, and the rest of the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha family, but I think they all ought to learn a trade and get honest jobs.

          Maybe they’ll be deported back to Germany when Brexit becomes final.

          • gram krakka says:

            Chuck likes to garden. They could put their vast estates to public use by plowing them & the polo fields and planting crops to feed the hungry masses of middle eastern, asian and african refugees coming home to their colonial masters. Karma is a beyotch!

        A friend of mine tagged me in a Rick Steves post yesterday lamenting how the Europeans no longer see America as the shining moral leader it once was, blah blah blah. Me: Has this guy ever met a European? A third of France voted for LePen, a third of the Netherlands voted for Wilders, leaders throughout Eastern and Central Europe LOVE them some Trump. What an idiot! My liberal friend: Yeah, I kind of cringed at that part.

        Ha ha ha.

    I don’t think for a moment he’ll invade. But there are other weapons to wield.

    In other news:

    Oh dear, oh dear, what will the left do? If then condemn him for this they’re supporting slavery. If they applaud, their heads will explode. If they say nothing, they condemn themselves with silence. If they do stay silent, everyone has to talk about how they’re staying silent.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      All the dems have been running around like chickens 🐔 without heads over prepaying their 2018 property taxes ignoring the fact that the IRS had said you cannot prepay something for which you have not been assessed. Ours are not sent until July and the are due that September and December. So there will be no tax bills for months. And they are all upset 😭 about the 10000 salt limit and 750000 mortgage limits for interest but whining that if the red states get refunds it is unfair because CHILDREN 👶 and poor little illegal immigrants need those tax dollars. Nope. See no disconnect.

    Opinion article from Arab news on Iranian protests. a lot of details that are not reported here in US

      I believe that’s how much time Iranan people have, otherwise the government will have gathered enough forces to suppress the people.

    this is really a stupid move on slimy slug’s part. Railroads bring a lot of money to NYC. take a look at Penn Station and Grand Central Station every weekday morning. Look at the people coming into work there. Look at the visitors coming to spend money in NYC Look at the freight traffic with goods coming in and out of they city everyday.. This means companies stay in NYC and pay taxes, and city wage taxes are paid bringing in revenue. Yes it is a major issue to have someone good to head the FRA. The FRA regulates the railroads and can make a big difference in safety and performance.

    • lateblum says:

      But if Schumer can stop the confirmation, he will lay the responsibility for any and every problem, disaster, critical issue that occurs, at the feet of PDJT. It’s a win-win for Schumer and the D’s.

    • lateblum says:

      I’m gonna nominate my DIL who, the morning after the election answered the door with red, swollen eyes and barely able to speak without choking back even more tears. and all through the year continued to be shocked, pained, and angered by the election of PDJT. She spoke out against PDJT whenever she could. She knitted pink vagina hats for my gbabies (and her friends’ babies), marched against PDJT and any and everything she could – even remotely connect to his election. And as recently as Christmas morning brunch, she made mean spirited statements and accusations against him so that I finally drew the line and suggested she put a cork in it. She can join those elite 10 AFAIC.
      I still love her, but she’s making it pretty difficult.

      • lyn says:

        I could nominate a few too. I was told that I liked Trump because I was obsessed with his bullying. These people are obsessed with their Trump hate. I guess it makes them feel worthy of something or better than something.

      • taw46 says:

        I’ll throw my two relatives in, although nowhere near as bad as your DIL, lol. But they got that year ’round Trump hate going for them, thanks to a daily dose of MSNBC!

        • lateblum says:

          Sad. It’s sad that as much as I loathed bronco, and as much rancor as I felt, I didn’t shove those feelings down the throats of my family or others the way they still do. Maybe after year #5, this nastiness will end.

    Figures. Iranian Regime Is Just Like the Democrat Party – They Bus in Their Protesters Too! (Video)

    Anti-government protests were planned in several Iranian cities today.

    Way off topic but why is skim milk cheaper than whole?

    • elliesmom says:

      Probably because they’ve removed the cream and sold it as a separate product. My dad used to have the milk our family used pasteurized but not homogenized. The cream would rise to the top of the milk bottle. We shook it before we poured it to mix the cream in sort of like salad dressing. If we wanted cream for something, we “skimmed” it off the top. The price of having whipped cream on our strawberry shortcake was drinking skim milk for a couple of days.

      • votermom says:

        used to be able to buy that kind of milk in bottles as a kid.
        I would eat the cream

        • Lulu says:

          My grandmother had a Jersey cow for milking and the milk came out that way. It was thick. Yuck. I was made to drink it because I was a skinny runt. I was drinking butter. LOL.

      • mothy says:

        Now why does filtered water from coke and pepsi cos (dansani and aquafina) cost more than their soda? What kind of drudge are they using for soft drinks? Kidding I know they charge what people will pay.

    • Lulu says:

      The tipping point is usually when the public knows that the regime can’t put everyone in jail. I think that point has passed. It also appears that Trump and Prince Mo tricked the mullahs into sending their paid murder squads (including Hamas and Hezbollah mercenaries FROM Syria) and a large contingent of revolutionary guards to the Golan to try to beat up on Israel prompted by declaring Jerusalem the capital by Trump out of the blue. The dumb mullahs were duped into it. This bait and switch at the exact time protests “break out” appears to me anyway to be carefully timed and trip wired.

      • lyn says:

        Dang, you connect the dots well, Lulu! ❤

        • Lulu says:

          It took me a while to catch on to Trump. He seems to do this kind of stuff all the time. I couldn’t figure out what was going on then I started seeing “patterns, I see patterns”. LOL. It was entirely accidental. Now I just go “what’s he up to now”.

    Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year’s Eve!

    We don’t have any big plans, although it appears the cul-de-sac bands will be playing which most likely means block party sine it is New Year. I’m not sure if I’ll be sociable or just stay in my house.

    Either way hopefully I won’t have a repeat of last night. I think I had food poisoning. We went out yesterday for lunch and a little shopping. An hour or so after lunch I started having stomach pains and they only got worse. I felt a little better after my 20 minute barf session, but didn’t feel entirely better until this morning. I slept 12 hours. I can’t remember the last time I did that. I got up twice during that time, but went right back to sleep. Whatever came over me knocked me on my ass. I really hope it was something I ate and not the flu…….fingers crossed.

    Stay safe and warm crawdadders and enjoy New Year’s Eve…….2017 has been a fascinating year indeed. 2018 could be even more intriguing. Still the best election ever!!

    Lesson learned on 2017 – Never NEVER never temp fate. On Tuesday, I stupidly said “Nothing else could possibly go wrong, I have nothing left to take or break. What a relief!”

    Then yesterday, my internet went out and my phone broke…. connected now through personal hotspot from my spare phone via my iPad. I’m keeping my trap shut TODAY about what else could possibly go wrong 🤣🤣🤣

    All I’m saying now is Happy New Year to a all of my TCH family. Love you all very much, couldn’t stay sane(ish) without you!

        If you see this, your chocolate chess pie was a hit with the young ones (and adults). My cousins youngest is special needs not what you would call an adventurous eater and he likes my basic chocolate pie and my back forest trifle. I decided to wait and try it out for the New Year’s Eve dinner so I could have the right ingredients the first time. The only change I made was to add chocolate shavings and drizzle to the top so the kids would “see” chocolate and therefore be willing to try. worked like a charm.

        • Anthony says:

          Awesome 😎. It’s so simple to make but always a hit. Love your twist on it – going to try that next time. Your cherry sangria is a hit too. Happy New Year!
