In a so-called ‘ceremony of honoring’, introducing the commander of the Sarallah Corps of Kerman province, the Iranian regime’s second highest commander of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Ali Fadavi spoke about the contradiction of two current fronts, introducing the regime as being on the right side of this war.
He said, “The fight between the right front of the Islamic revolution and the evil front of the world is never-ending, and these two fronts will never come together.”
He revealed the regime’s year-long malign activities in the Middle East and its support of global terrorism, adding, “In the 80s with fought in our home, but in the 2000s we are fighting 1000 km away from home.”
Fadavi also spoke about the current situation of the country’s youths, which greatly contrasts with the real situation, stating, “The new generation of the revolution, although they had not seen the war and the Imam (regime founder Khomeini), the victory of the Islamic revolution, the story of Kurdistan and the West, when they were to be tested, they were like those who had seen the revolution, the Imam, the war, and the martyrs.”
What we witness on a daily basis is the Iranian youths’ growing hatred against the regime. This was majorly reflected in the past nationwide protests in December 2017 and November 2019.
During his speech, Fadavi absurdly proclaimed that the world should see and taste the sweetness of the Islamic Republic. Therefore, it is not a bad idea to have a look at the composition of this regime’s ‘sweet cake’ which has left nothing for the people of Iran, has destroyed many countries in the Middle East, and taken millions of lives over the past four decades.
The regime’s founder Ruhollah Khomeini considered the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s a blessing and he intended to continue it for as long as possible, as he saw peace as the burial of Islam. During this 8-year-long war, one million people lost their lives on both sides, and cost about one trillion dollars, as the regime claimed. Official statistics claimed that there were two million people left dead or disabled on the Iranian side, and the war caused the destruction of five provinces and one trillion dollars in damage, before finally ending with no result.
Since the 1980s, there has been an existential massacre of political prisoners, with no official statistics to indicate the true scale of how many have lost their lives at the hands of the regime. In the summer of 1988, according to the documents of the Iranian opposition, around 30,000 prisoners were massacred in less than 3 months.
According to a state-run news agency, from 2001 to 2020, the annual average of the absolute poverty line across the country has increased more than 27 times. The statistics indicate that during this period about 33 percent of the population has fallen below the multidimensional poverty line. At present, nearly 60 percent of the country’s population is severely poor.
The statistics of cardboard sleepers in Tehran indicate that in the country’s capital alone, more than 24,000 people are homeless. The number of homeless people across the entire country is rampant, and with social networks reporting shocking news on a daily basis about these people, the scale is out of control. The situation is so dire that many people are even forced to live in empty graves and pits.
During the uprising of November 2019, unemployed youths came to the streets to protest the hunger and unemployment crises. In response, the regime attacked them with bullets, killing more than 1,500 people and putting thousands behind bars. The protests of the mothers of the victims are still audible to this day and cannot be silenced.
The best ‘sweet’ for the regime in the past two years was the expansion of the coronavirus pandemic across Iran, which was exacerbated deliberately by the regime to prevent any new protests. Due to their tactics, the regime killed more than 500,000 people. Iran was the only country in the world that prevented imports of globally approved vaccines. The regime even prevented the state-run media from giving accurate statistics about the casualties in order to hide its crime.
Terrorism and meddling in the internal affairs of the countries of the region is another destructive policy of the Islamic regime, which has brought nothing but death and destruction to the people of the region. From the destructive war in Syria to the support of the Yemeni Houthis, Kataib and Hashd al-Shaabi in Iraq, and Hezbollah in Lebanon, the regime has been at the heart of the chaos and shows no signs of stopping any time soon.
Concluding that, this was just a glimpse of the ‘sweetness’ of the Iranian regime delivered to Iran’s people and the entire region.
