Our hope!




Weeks after the Presidential election in Iran, still the nation is suffering from the aftermath of Ahmadinejad’s presidency. Apparently, the whole system has gone mad! The Vali-e Faquih (Khamanei) gave the president, his son-in-faith, a very cold shoulder. Every one gasped. What, the Basij is now the Supreme force! Excuse me, did we miss something?

The Revolutionary guard, Sepah-e Pasdaran-e Enghelab-e Eslami, did not plan this, the Hardliners did not plan this, and the Supreme Leader did not plan it. But, apparently Rafsanjani and Khatami’s connections were aware of the procedures, or did they do the dirty job? How much of the truth is embedded in dirty lies?

On the other hand:
There is a serious lack of leadership amongst the real opposition, the people of Iran. Without a great leadership no effort can be made into the making of a progress, let alone bringing down a regime that has been backed by the will of the Free World.

But, who is there to trust? The infamous intellectuals, scattered around the globe, receiving honours and titles from here and there? No, sir, thank you. They better do what they ought to do, which is keeping away from making political decisions for profit.
Do we trust another man-of-god, even for a second, to lead us through this difficult phase? Think twice before you answer this one!
How about those who helped established the regime and are now in the service of those who invested in the regime? Think trice before you answer this one!

Our only hope:

We’d better understand that timing is every thing. Simple, I know, but the greater realization of the concept demands a greater collective thinking, that can be translated into efforts. Self-sufficiency, that’s another task. Are we ready to learn the tricks? That’s a question worth a nation’s freedom! And trust in each other’s goodness? Yes, we need to trust each other. We need to know that we are broken, we are divided, and we cannot do a darn thing if we continue like this!

There, I said my thing.
