  1. Yes although the image is from the Zero Dark Thirty film character Wolf who is based on D'Andrea. https://www.businessinsider.com/Iran-image-zero-dark-thirty-actor-claim-cia-agent-death-2020-1 Most likely it is this chap in the pic, not many images exist of this guy for probably obvious reasons
  2. https://wikileaks.org/gifiles/docs/32/323433_-os-afghanistan-Iran-security-taliban-fighters-being-taught.html https://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2010/11/the_taliban_acquisition_of_ant.php https://www.militarytimes.com/flashpoints/2020/01/14/Iran-support-to-the-taliban-which-has-included-manpads-and-a-bounty-on-us-troops-could-be-a-spoiler-for-peace-in-afghanistan/ If you cannot see why it would make pragmatic sense for Iran to play a double game in keeping Americans bogged down in Afghanistan, the graveyard of empires through sporadic support to the Taliban, and choose to disregard the above links, including from Wikileaks (there is more if you choose to look into the Afghan War papers 2010), then that is on you. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afghan_War_documents_leak The leak, which is considered to be one of the largest in U.S. military history,[6][13] revealed information on the deaths of civilians, increased Taliban attacks, and involvement by Pakistan and Iran in the insurgency .[1][14][15]
  3. You clearly are not aware that Iran has provided the Taliban material and financial support where it suits their interests. Furthermore Soleimani's replacement has forged decades long ties in Afghanistan too.
  4. A top CIA chief who orchestrated the assassination of an Iranian general was killed when a US military plane crashed in Taliban territory in Afghanistan, it is claimed. The US has not yet commented on reports that Michael D’Andrea, who was involved in the hunt for Osama bin Laden and is nicknamed the "Dark Prince", was on board the jet and among those killed. The Taliban claims it shot down a US spy plane, which had US Air Force and Air Combat Command logos, but hasn't provided any evidence. The US has denied the claims. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/top-cia-chief-behind-soleimani-21375358
  5. In the decades long stand-off between US and IRI, critics of Yankee imperialism cite the origins, not to the Embassy hostage crisis not long after the 79 revolution, but justifiably point to the CIA backed coup against populist prime minister Mohammed Mossadegh in 1953. Seldomly discussed is the alleged CIA links and involvement that the pre-revolutionary clergy had in the coup. Namely Ayatullah Khomeini's predecessor, Ayatullah Kashani. Which appears to be well-documented: https://foreignpolicy.com/2017/06/20/64-years-later-cia-finally-releases-details-of-iranian-coup-Iran-Tehran-oil/ https://nsarchive.gwu.edu/briefing-book/Iran/2018-03-07/new-findings-clerical-involvement-1953-coup-Iran http://markcurtis.info/2016/10/09/Iran-1953-working-with-the-ayatollah/ https://lobelog.com/misreading-the-1953-coup/ https://www.middleeasteye.net/opinion/blame-foreigners-disasters-1953-coup-yes-iranians-must-look-their-own-failings Now I bring this up as I did not find a thread on ShiaChat regarding the Shia clergy's role in the coup. What are your thoughts on this? How is Kashani perceived by most Iranians?
  6. Aint nobody pickup that this fool literally tweeted to Eye-rakis in Eye-ranian? Trump administration is full on idiocrasy.
  7. Was going to post this too. May Allah preserve him. Some are saying it is broken not just fractured
  8. Will be a lot more given the US's barefaced refusal to withdraw, undermining Iraqi sovereignty and democracy. As usual.
  9. Yes I agree, those original vintages are something else, I have a few in my collection, including the "holy grail" of men's fragrances, most frag message boards have mentioned it...it is a discontinued and sought after French one called Patou by Jean Patou. It is of course very very sophisticated and complex. I know a Russian dude on Etsy who is reliable and legit, I have purchased from him previously, reasonably priced. Spring/Summer mornings, naturally go for citrusy or aquatic one. I have a white floral, yet somehow masculine one too, lasts all day. Evenings,something woody. Autumn/Winter mornings, definitely rose/ouds. I also like "green" scents if it is a rainy day. Evenings, something woody and spicy. I particularily am fond of a parfum extrait, called Pardon - it has dark chocolate, oud with sandalwood - picture that if you will
  10. Russkies offering Iraq S-400s https://mobile.almasdarnews.com/article/russia-offers-Iraq-s-400-air-defense-system-to-protect-airspace/
  11. If I could only have one for the rest of my life it is this: But specifically the vintage formula (as depicted with the silver band all across), the contemporary reformulation which has a small silver sticker is a tamer version (like most reformulations). I have different scents for different seasons/weathers and daytime/evening.
  12. Unlike those clowns dancing and celebrating in the streets of Baghdad upon hearing of the martyrdom of Soleimani, thousands of Iraqis chanted down with Amreeka in the masjid of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) after Jummuah salah Moqtada's Mahdi Army is back now too, hopefully a more unified and concerted effort can be realised, against the crmimal, occupying force - and it's not the Iranians.
  13. Proving what I said in another thread a while ago, that it is inevitable that powerful states will intervene, as they have been doing for hundreds of years in Mesopotamia. It is not truly an independent/sovereign country that is the harsh reality.
  14. But even that would be problematic, certain Arabs in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen certainly are not, ie Axis of Resistance.
  15. ICYMI By Ed Hussain (reformed extremist) his article published a few days ago was Tweeted by UAE Foreign Minister, in turn re-Tweeted by Netanyahu. Proving normalisation with Israel. https://www.spectator.co.uk/2019/12/islams-reformation-an-Arab-israeli-alliance-is-taking-shape-in-the-middle-east/ There’s a new peace between Israel and Sunni Islam
  16. Not if said in a typical East Londoner/Essex accent
