  1. One outcome of the revolution was that it brought Islam to the forefront of social events, and with it, fitnas, conspiracies and evolving social crisis. Unlike in the past, this has given up a new metric to measure the basirat (spiritual awareness, separating truth from falshood) of the religious leaders and marajs. A scholar or marja can be the highest rank in figh and Islamic knowledge, but when it applying their knowledge and knowing whats true and whats false, they can be a lower than an average person. Basirat, is what matters when it comes to leadership and its the output of years of training scholars receive. It is what's expected from a marja as a leader of Shia. The revolution and the ensuing fitna's exposed alot of the marja's and scholars as just been educated in figh and not much beyond that. Imam Khomeini saw through that, and hence dismissed most maraj's as unfit for leadership. A good example is Ayatollah Montazeri (who was thought to succeed Imam Khomeini). This is also why, in decades leading up to the revolution, extensive effort was made to train new era of scholars for that very purpose. Imam Khamenei was the outcome of that. In the last 40 years of the revolution, with ever increasing complexity of the fitna's occurring, there hasn't been any scholar who has demonstrated basirat even close to the level of Wali Fagih. Knowing what to say, when to say, how to act, when to act and when not to act is all part of it. As far as I know, thats no the case anymore.
  2. While the world is distracted. https://www.veteranstoday.com/2019/03/20/during-new-zealand-terrorist-attack-Israel-bombs-hundreds-to-death-press-remains-silent/
  3. Iran is not a monolithic entity where its centralized under one power. If you look at the Iran's constitution, only 5 articles apply to the Wali Fagih, 38 for presidency and 37 for parliament ( two groups that are dominated by the westernized liberals ). Wali Fagih, simply directs and guides on internal matter at this point, it's up to different aspects of the government to listen to him or not based on religious duty. Think of it this way, when ISIS invaded Iraq, and Ayatollah Sistani gave fatwa to fight them, what legal authority did he have other than religious obligation of his followers? People could have ignored his call. Now, in Iran we have authorities in power who ignore and do as they like. It's up to the people to remove them from power through listening the Wali Fagih and his guidance. In the last parliamentary election, the Wali Fagih called on the masses to not vote for those the west supports. The people did the exact opposite, and here we are. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitution_of_the_Islamic_Republic_of_Iran
  4. We already do have munafiqs in positions of power (government, parliament, economy...), and they're doing exactly as is expected of munafiqs; attempting to follow the strategies of enemies of Allah, trying to bypass or dismantle Islam principles any way they can, facilitating and allowing corruption as much as they can, giving out intelligence and security information to the western agencies, removing the means of evading sanctions, removing self sufficiency, manipulating the economy to increase hardship... These people have come to power through the means of elections and influences associated with them. This falls on the people for their lack of basirat ( ability to see the truth), not on the welayat faqih or the regime. Where you see the waly faqih directly involved in, is in the Shia regional influences, neutralizing the 18 years old and 7 trillion dollars western plan (since 2001) of reshaping the region. In the internal affairs, the role of the waly fagih is to direct and guide the society, increase their basirat, manage the munafiq groups that ppl have brought to power, so they expose themselves without doing irreversible damage, and eventually remove them from the scene. This will take time, and damage the society receives from them is dependent on how quickly the masses mature and gain basirat. Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. [al-Ra’d 13:11]
  5. As far as I understand, There is a very vast distance between accepting a religion at society level, (safavid era) and having religious political awareness (basirat). It's a slow and gradual process. The safavid era was the beginning of Shia cultural work at social level. The Iranians were simply not at the level, where a marja could tell them to protest in the streets and they would by the millions. It's a miracle they're doing it now. Think in terms of people and religious leaders of Iraq during the Iranian revolution compared to Iranian religious leaders and ppl. There is decades of difference in their maturity of political thought. The Shia cleric in Iraq had no political readiness and even thought Imam Khomeini to be impure (najis) for his muddying of the religion with politics and the Iraqis were even worse, never rising up when called up. Compare that to Iranian ppl and clerics (who had gone through a few decades of training in politics prior to the revolution). They had to be crushed under the feet of Saddam and then the Americans to realize that they must fight, and even now, politically, they're immature.
  6. It requires 2 parts for it to work: 1. Social and political awareness of the masses 2. Trust and following for the religious leadership (marjas) without those 2 conditions, you'l end up with what Imam Ali(عليه السلام) had during his rulership. It took a long time for minimum of these 2 conditions to become apparent in Iranians.
  7. They can't. Iran is not going to sit around doing nothing. This is the same regime that has thwarted very sophisticated, multi trillion dollar plots of the zionist/western empire in the middle east over the last few decades. This is just the latest of the zionist strategies, among the long list of failed attempts. Every strategy the zionist have used, has backfired, most recent in the last 2 decades was their venture in middle east post 911, were as result, the Shia resistance has taken a much stronger hold in the region. The result of sanctions, will be a formation of an anti sanction alliance between various non western countries. Currently, Iran's war is internal, as the sanctions are a joint venture between the westernized Iranian government and the west to force the regime to negotiate away its missiles and regional influence. After the nuclear negotiations, it was revealed that around 700 foreign economic teams under the guise of economic investments, were given Iran's secrets on how the sanctions were bypassed, as means of closing them. Bypassing the sanctions, or fully breaking them is an easier task than defeating the internal enemy. https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/10/29/neo-can-eu-russia-china-plan-avert-iran-oil-sanctions/
  8. One spiritual angle/cause of masturbation is demonic/Jinn influence. These beings, once having gained access to a person, manipulate the host energy to have these desire, far beyond what's natural. This is why, In Ramazan, controlling oneself is quite easy, but after, the pressure starts again. To accept masturbation, is to accept Jinn influence on one self, which is unacceptable. Masturbation is an easy means for them to gain influence on a person, specially in this society. Having gained access, they continue to chip away at one's faith, relationships, and shift a person towards spiritual darkness. If a person understand, and recognizes these manipulations, then through faith and remembrance of god, they can cause the jinns to lose hope in manipulating. Then, these beings will seek out other means to influence, but it's all fought the same way.
  9. Its worth noting that US has around 50k+ personal in middle east, easily within missile range and capabilities of Iran. How much casualties can the US sustain? https://www.presstv.com/DetailFr/2018/01/30/550726/How-many-military-bases-US-has-in-Middle-East This is also worth a read: Here is a rand report, placing Iran among China and Russia as nations where military intervention is not feasible and "coercion" should be employed in dealing with them. https://www.rand.org/content/dam/rand/pubs/research_reports/RR1000/RR1000/RAND_RR1000.pdf
  10. How did destroying Hezbollahs missiles or suppressing them work out for them in 2006? The resistance movement knows how to keep its missiles safe and firing. Your ignorance and western worship is baffling, backed up by nothing but propaganda. How many sorties can the US do from beyond 2000+km? The US with all its support for Israel/Saudis and jihadi groups cant even defeat Iran's proxy influence, let alone taking on Iran. I suppose in your mind, Israel defeated Hezbollah in 3 days just as analysts predicted and is now enjoying the greater Israel dream. Iran: No need to extend 2,000km ballistic missile range https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/10/iran-extend-2000km-ballistic-missile-range-171031135651513.html Again, if they could, they would have. Think about it for a bit and let it sink in.
  11. We can answer in kind. Thousands of missiles for thousand of sorties. Though, they wont be able to have any additional sorties beyond their initial. Thousands of sorties in short span of time means having air bases beyond Aircraft carriers. How can they when all their military bases within 2000km are destroyed within the first hour? We're not north Korea. https://www.timesofisrael.com/iranian-commander-100000-missiles-ready-to-annihilate-israel/ https://thediplomat.com/2013/06/irans-carrier-killer-missile-improves-accuracy/ https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/iran-blows-up-gigantic-u-s-carrier-mock-up-during-nava-1688057598 It comes back to, if they could, they would have in the last 40 years.
  12. Glad you see the Americans as what they are. However, you're overestimating their capabilities. When it comes to believers vs non believers, there is always the aspect of supernatural. Battle of Badr, 313 vs 1000+ is a good example. There was quite a bit of that with Hezbollah vs Israel in 2006 as well, as well as Iran-Iraq war. When an army has god on their side, they gain the most by understanding how god intervenes on their behalf, and strategizes with that understanding. In Iraq-Iraq war, the Iranians would carry on operations which normally have very little chance of success but succeed regardless by calling the operation "ya Fatemeh Zahra" or something similar. Or, they would call the name of ahlulbait and just drive through mortar shells with confidence without being damaged. That war was Soviet Union + US + 80 others supporting Sadam with unlimited budget and weaponry against post revolution Iran. Regarding the perception of war, the world is already against the US and they will see the US as the aggressor, both in the US and outside. One thing the westerners cannot handle, is hardship. There is a reason why Israel always sues for peace after x amount of days after Palestinian resistance fires missiles at them. Hence their wars are known by the number of days the fight: 8 day war, 51 days war, 33 days war... Cutting off 2/3 of world energy will have a devastating effect on world economy that will force the US to back down. Military response will not be able to start up the energy transfer, since they will not be able to stop Iran's missile, just as Israel was unable to stop Hezbollah's missiles. Thats the advantage of asymmetric warfare.
  13. Iran's strength lies in its asymmetric warfare strategy. The ability to absorb damage and attack the enemies weaknesses. Iran is fully capable of taking in far more damage than any other nation and continue operations, as demonstrated during its Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s. This is something classic warfare analysts are incapable of understanding and get caught up in numbers and weapon superiority. Making comparisons to US-Iraq war or dismissing Iran's tech as outdated or limited to mainly missiles. For them, Israel being defeated by Hezbollah in 2006 is perplexing, or for that matter, Saudis not being able to defeated the Yemenis through complete air superiority. Iran's economy and military are designed for long term war against the US. The current economic problems are artificial, as the westernized forces in charge of government and parliament, are following an agenda of trying to force the regime to accept continuing negotiations with the west (missile, regional power, islamic culture), through paralyzing the economy. The infrastructure to shift the economy to a "war time" resistance economy exists and can be put into place once the situation arises. US, on the other hand, is incapable of a continuous 6 month+ warfare, with energy export from middle east being cut off. Hence, why they have never attacked Iran (as they can manufacture an excuse or escalation) and are focusing on proxy and economic warfare. They have already lost the proxy warfare through the jihadis and their best chance currently is economic warfare through the westernized forces in Iran. But how long will that last? We could ‘destroy all US bases in region & create hell for Zionist regime’ – Iranian commander https://www.rt.com/news/418430-iran-israel-hell-zionist/
  14. Iran is not Hezbollah. Iran has a population of 80 million, you bomb and block their main source of income and the country is in an economic crisis. Too much vulnerabilities to fight a war with the most powerful country. Are you comparing one spy plane to an entire arsenal of the greatest planes humans have created? In any way, the US will he deploying entire squadrons of aircraft, which even the greatest air defenses combined can't stop. It is a fact, the US is above and beyond in airpower. And you can't say "even the Chinese", the Chinese are ahead of Iran as well. Where are those planes going to come from, when Iran has destroyed all their military bases, aircraft carriers in the region. Your American worship is strong and make too many assumptions on the greatness of their military and weakness of Iran, which you have little knowledge of. In key areas Iran is within the latest technologies and capable of taking out US planes. Taking down the American spy plane is an example of surprising the enemy with technology Iran is not expected to have. If they can detect stealth, they can take them down. If you want to consider ramifications of war, Iran will take out all energy exports in the region, closing down strait of Hormoz and Bab-el-Mandeb in Yemen. Destroying oil pipelines from Arab countries and so forth. That's 2/3 of the world's energy supplies. United states is incapable of extended warfare beyond the initial bombing runs, Iran however is fully capable of going all the way. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/opinion-parsi-war-with-iran_us_5abd46fde4b055e50acc2e82
  15. Israel also was able to target anything in Lebanon in 2006, but did they win the war? War in-tails the entire spectrum of warfare, not just initial bombing. From beginning to finish. This is why Iranian general Qasim Soleimani has said that US can start the war, but we will finish it. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/07/27/iranian-commander-soleimani-to-trump-if-you-begin-the-war-we-will-e.html Regarding air power, Iran was able to bring down the US spy drone RQ-170 through detecting and then hacking it. Before then, US was bragging about how they're able to spy on Iran with it with impunity. Stealth tech is overrated and serves propaganda purposes. Iran Unveils Radars that Can Detect Stealth Targets https://english.alahednews.com.lb/30355/534 Even Chinese have means of detecting these stealth planes. https://www.cnbc.com/2016/09/21/the-end-of-stealth-new-chinese-radar-capable-of-detecting-invisible-targets-100km-away.html
