    Iranian Currency Collapses - Sanctions + corruption

    It would seem the Iranian sanctions have exacerbated the economic corruption and mismanagement.


    Internally Iran is becoming a powerkeg, the fuse is lit and hpefully we''ll see a persian spring.

    I do not think the Iranian regime will allow a democratic uprising. They've already shown a propensity to brutally oppress such, including the putting down of a 'Persian Spring' recently and they keep Assad in power. If they get the bomb, they will turn Iran into a nK, with no contact in or out.

    there is only so much stress the regime can take. The last uprising was mostly about free elections. This time its going to be about food on the table.

    This protest situation I am glad to see. Good for these people in this very repressive environment. The riot police were called out and "Iran deployed riot police at key Tehran intersections on Thursday, after tensions flared over the nation's plunging currency in the most widespread display of anger linked to the country's sanctions-hit economy. The show of force reflects the authorities' concerns in the wake of sporadic protests Wednesday over the plummeting currency, which has sharply driven up prices."

    Here is another video posted on youtube.

    It's probably only a matter of time. I don't know if it's months or years, but not forever.

    Except their regime isn't nearly as worshipped as nk was when they closed the doors and the population far more educated. Any attempt to deprive contact with the established Iranian diaspora that freely travel in and out of the country will make it more unpopular.

    NK could never happen again with the way communication is these days.

    There would be no way to stop them, and if one thinks that some sense of decency is gonna prevent it, one's dreamin'.

    NK is only happening because of China.

    This can only mean one thing: burn embassies to the ground and shoot the inhabitants. Not necessarily in that order.

    Call 1-800-jihadmeisters.

    "hello?" I need a jihad, quick!! "Have you tried burning American Flags?.

    Please hold, we have another client on the line.

    I agree.. Iran can't buy parts for anything and they can't pay for the imports they need... The Iranian people are fed up with the defiance of the Iranian government working hardships on them.. Hardships that promise to get worse....and they are well aware that Syria is killing Syrians.
