While the common Iranian suffers, retard Mullahs go gallivanting about funding terrorism directly and via proxy.

Waiting for the Iranian people to grow a pair and kick these retards back to where they came from.
These mulla's are not retard... they are on a mission to destabilize Mideast, what they did in Syria, Yemen, Iraq as well tried in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Afghanistan and Pakistan is not enough for them.

Iran President Hassan Rouhani: Warning US, some other countries must know that Iran won’t ever accept violation of Resolution 2231 arms embargo/ My response to arms embargo in any way will be the same as I have stipulated in last paragraph of my response to leaders of the 5 countries, In a letter to the heads of the P4+1 and the five countries, I emphasised in the final paragraph that if you do this, we will do that, and they know what serious consequences would befall them if such a mistake was made.
I bet IRGC can't survive any armed conflict on their own for more than 24 hours.... Iran ruled by mulla is a terrorist state, who hire non state actors from Pakistan and Afghanistan, for their dirty terrorist jobs.
Iran has provided military base to India, which is basically an operational base of RAW to destabilize Pakistan.
All your defense programs have roots in Pakistan, where subservient prime ministers are helping you with both hands.

Food Aid For Iranian Poor At Khomeini's Luxurious Shrine Ignites Controversy
May 12, 2020

Food packages at the shrine of the founder of the Islamic republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

The innumerous, pretty food packages for the poor were carefully set around the shrine of the founder of Iran's Islamic republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, to highlight support for people left in need by the deadly coronavirus pandemic.

But those images filling Iranian news sites led to a sudden flood of criticism from people shocked by the stark contrast between Khomeini's glittery shrine and the thought of the uncountable thousands of Iranians that need such handouts to survive.

"Forty years after the revolution of Imam Khomeini, people were not supposed to be in need of rice, oil, and macaroni, which have been displayed at such an aristocratic place!" tweeted Ghasem Mohammadi, who describes himself as a veteran of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War and a supporter of detained opposition figure Mir Hossein Musavi.

Another Twitter user, Majid, noted that "the imam of the poor is buried in a palace" while being surrounded by food packages for the poor that are likely to last its needy recipients a mere week.

Journalist and political activist Mehdi Mahmudian went so far as to call on Khomeini's grandson, Hassan Khomeini, to apologize to the people for the controversial images of food packages at the mausoleum of Khomeini, who, according to his supporters, led an ascetic life.

"The existence of each family that is dependent on these [food] packages is a shame for everyone, particularly for your family," Mahmudian, who was imprisoned in 2009 for his role in documenting prison rapes, tweeted. "These [packages are nothing to be proud of], it is shameful."

آقای حسن خمینی؛ این نوع عکس‌ها مختص گروه‌های جهادی! و بسیجیان! بود کاش اجازه می‌دادید در انحصار آنها بماند.وجود هرخانواده نیازمند به این بسته‌ها، یک لکه ننگ بر دامن همه ما، بخصوص خانواده حضرتعالی است.بخاطر انتشار این عکس‌ها از مردم عذرخواهی کنید.اینها افتخار نیست؛ لکه ننگ هست. pic.twitter.com/fs82YI06RS

Many Iranians are struggling to make ends meet due to a poor economy under pressure from crippling U.S. sanctions as well as alleged mismanagement and corruption.

Many people's situations have been worsened by the coronavirus pandemic that has severely impacted the economy, with a lockdown shutting down businesses and putting people out of work.

A poll published in April by the Iranian Students Polling Agency (ISPA) found that the coronavirus outbreak has hurt the income of some 50 percent of those surveyed. Nearly 42 percent said their businesses were shut as a result of the virus.

The packages are being distributed to the poor -- particularly those affected by the coronavirus pandemic -- by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), which has put them on display in religious shrines and other places around the country.

The charitable acts played up in the media appear to be part of efforts by the IRGC to improve its image, especially following a deadly November 2019 crackdown on anti-government protesters that killed hundreds, as well as the January downing of a Ukrainian passenger jet that killed all 176 people on board.

The IRGC admitted to the "unintentional" shooting down of the plane three days after the incident, a delay that resulted in widespread outrage from Iranians.

No IRGC official has thus far resigned over the tragic incident that occurred as Iranian forces were on high alert after missile attacks on U.S. forces in Iraq made in retaliation for the U.S. assassination days earlier of top IRGC commander Qasem Soleimani in a drone strike in Baghdad.

The IRGC has also tried to portray itself as a major player in Iran’s battle against the pandemic that has killed more than 6,700 Iranians and infected nearly 110,000, according to official figures released by the Health Ministry on May 12.

Real numbers are believed to be significantly higher. Research by RFE/RL's Radio Farda showed that at least two to three times more people had been infected with coronavirus and died from its disease than officials were reporting.

Iranian Currency Plunges To New Lows Against Dollar As Rohani Denounces 'Psychological Warfare'
June 23, 2020

The Iranian currency plunged to new depths against the U.S. dollar on June 23, as the country continues to wrestle against the economic effects of U.S. sanctions, the coronavirus, and low oil prices.

The value of one U.S. dollar rose as high as 205,000 rials on the street market, up from 193,400 rials three days earlier, according to the foreign exchange site Bonbast.com.

The official rate, cited by the central bank website, is 42,000.

The Iranian currency has plummeted against the dollar since Iran and world powers signed a nuclear deal in 2015.

U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal in 2018 and reimposed crushing sanctions that sent the economy into a tailspin and fueled inflation.

The latest fall comes four days after the UN atomic watchdog urged Tehran to stop denying its inspectors access to two suspected former nuclear sites.

The coronavirus pandemic and falling oil prices have contributed to the bleak economic outlook.

However, President Hassan Rohani on June 23 sought to downplay the slump in the rial, saying it was "temporary and has no fundamental economic reason," according to state television.

"Psychological warfare against Iran as well as the creation of an unrealistic anxiety among people, are the main causes of the recent fluctuations in the foreign exchange market," Rohani said.

Iran has been the Middle East’s hardest-hit nation by the epidemic with more than 209,000 positive cases so far.

The country on June 23 reported 121 new coronavirus deaths, its highest daily toll in over two months, bringing the overall virus death toll to over 9,800.

U.S. Dismisses Iran Arrest Warrant For Trump Over Soleimani Killing As 'Propaganda Stunt'
June 29, 2020

1593464733700.png

Iranian General Qasem Soleimani was killed in a U.S. drone strike near Baghdad aiport in January.

Iran has issued an arrest warrant for U.S. President Donald Trump and 35 others over the drone killing of its top general, Qasem Soleimani, in what a U.S. official dismissed as a "propaganda stunt."

Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said on June 29 that Trump and the others, who he said included U.S. political and military officials, face charges of "murder and terrorist acts" over the January assassination of Soleimani, who headed the Quds force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

He claimed Iran had asked the international police organization Interpol to issue a "red notice" to arrest them for their involvement in Soleimani’s killing and that Tehran would continue to pursue Trump’s prosecution even after the end of his presidency.

In response, the U.S. special representative for Iran, Brian Hook said Tehran was carrying out “a propaganda stunt that no one takes seriously."

"Our assessment is that Interpol does not intervene and issue red notices that are based on a political nature," Hook said at a June 29 press conference alongside the Saudi minister of state for foreign affairs in Riyadh.

Interpol said in a statement that it does not undertake "any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious, or racial character."

"Therefore, if or when any such requests were to be sent to the General Secretariat," it added, "...Interpol would not consider requests of this nature."

The assassination of Soleimani near Baghdad’s airport brought the United States and Iran close to a military conflict after Tehran retaliated by launching a missile strike targeting U.S. forces in Iraq.

Tensions between the two countries have escalated since the U.S. withdrew from a 2015 nuclear deal and reimposed harsh economic sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy.

TEHRAN, Iran — An explosion from a gas leak in a medical clinic in northern Tehran killed 19 people, Iranian state TV reported Tuesday.

Authorities initially said 13 people were dead, but Jalal Maleki, a spokesman for the Tehran Fire Department, later told state TV that the toll had risen to 19.

The state-run IRNA news agency quoted Mr. Maleki as saying the dead included 15 women and four men. Mr. Maleki added that firefighters had rescued 20 people.

Video posted online appeared to show more than one explosion and thick black smoke rising from the flames.

Hamidreza Goudarzi, a deputy Tehran governor, told state TV that a leak from medical gas tanks in the building was the cause of the explosion and an ensuing fire.

People in nearby Tajrish Bazaar rushed to the scene, impeding a rescue operation, authorities said. Videos on social media showed people gathered outside of the building.
