Political experts and economists alike are discussing how Iran is engulfed in a dire economic crisis paralyzing the country. While actual reports can hardly be obtained about the true status of Iran’s crumbling economy, a brief glance at what is available provides us with an image of the scope of the destruction overwhelming Iran’s economy at the hands of the mullahs sitting on the throne in Tehran. This despite all the promises of change to come following the nuclear pact and “reformists” gaining the upper hand in the sham twin elections in late February.

By Shahriar Kia
Despite the fact that a chorus of so-called Iranian human rights advocates, many dispatched by the regime in Tehran, began to place their weight behind the nuclear deal between P5+1 and Iran, the opposition had beforehand warned of a resulting crackdown. The mullahs in Iran consider the nuclear agreement, and in fact any other pact signed with any party, or parties, of the international community as a green light to step up human rights violations and deadly meddling across the globe. Therefore, recent arrests of journalists and other such measures are of no surprise.

Anti-Rouhani rally gears up in NY by Iranians

Iranians in New York are gearing up for a major rally next week to denounce the presence of the mullahs’ President Hassan Rouhani to the United Nations General Assembly.
The Iranian-American community in the city is alerting more and more individuals to the rally which will be held next Monday, September 28.
The following is a short video clip of a #No2Rouhani van as well as some photos from the Iranians staging a sit-in to urge the international community to condition their relationship with the Iranian regime on an improvement on the human rights situation in Iran.

The rally, which is being organized by the Organization of Iranian-American Communities (OIAC), will press the international community to hold the regime in Iran accountable for its abhorrent human rights record.
The mullahs’ regime in Iran continues to execute more of its citizens per capita than any other U.N. member state. Some 2000 people have been executed under Rouhani in the past two years.

First impact of Iran nuclear accord: growing Iran-Russia cooperation

The minute the July 14th nuclear accord between the West and Iran was signed in Vienna, the mullahs were rushing their delegations to Moscow to demand the transfer of the advanced S-300 missile system from Russia. Hat’s off to President Obama! This is just the first of many consequences of the “historic” and “landmark” agreement reached with Iran.
Iran’s possession of such a missile defense system will definitely complicate any future strikes that the international community may deem necessary, including strikes against Iran’s nuclear infrastructure in the event that the world comes to realize that Tehran has no intention but cheating on the nuclear deal and rushing for the development of a nuclear weapon.
