WHOEVER follows the Iranian media
machine, even for a moment, will notice the narrow-mindedness of the Mullah
regime which portrays its strength as that of major powers in the world while
the United States of America and other influential countries are just extras in
its battle with the people and the international community.
This reality becomes clearer with
every sunrise whenever the leaders of Iran's Revolutionary Guard, legislators,
president, ministers or their supreme leader Ali Khamenei come out to announce
victory in a war which has yet to start.
From the words of the deputy
Revolutionary Leader: 'All ships, including that of the Americans, in the Gulf
and northern part of the Strait of Hormuz are under the complete control of
Iran,' to Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif's statement that 'Iran
will witness the end of Trump, not the end of Iran'… are just rhetoric in pipe
It was said in the past: 'Talk
about something insane with a sane person and if he believes it, he is not
sane.' This applies to the Mullah regime
which operates based on a skewed principle taken from the Nazis' Minister of
Propaganda Joseph Goebbels who said: 'Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes
the truth.' This principle would have been
possible in the first half of the 20th century when the propaganda tool was
completely under the control of the ruling regime; but is no longer the case in
the 21st century, especially after the information technology boom which turned
the entire world into a small village.
statements of Iran's officials target the locals – around 64 percent of them
are youths who do not pay attention to the local official media tool. In fact,
this tool has become the center of sarcasm as it indulges in the digital
revolution to the furthest level.
Iranians are enduring chronic
unemployment and continuous deterioration of living standards – below the
poverty line; hence, when they protested several months ago, their objective
was to highlight the deplorable living standard of the country and to counter
the individual ambitions of the Mullahs in usurping the wealth of the country
at the expense of the general public.
The protest is similar to that of
1979 and the Mullahs are fully aware of this, so they resorted to exporting
their crises. The events involving the regime over the past few weeks proved
that Iran has no ability to fight and its dependence on its regional gangs will
not be beneficial.
The issue has become more
complicated for Iran, especially after the announcements made by credible
international agencies which put Iran behind the commercial ship sabotages at
the coast near Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE); in addition to the
bombing of some vital areas in Saudi Arabia and the rocket crash in Baghdad's
Green Zone near the US Embassy.
Therefore, hiding behind those
gangs is more problematic for Iran; given that the basis of the current crisis
is the terrorist behavior of the Mullah regime and its gangs, as well as the
lifting of the infamous nuclear deal.
Based on these facts, the US'
clear warning of dire consequences for Iran if it tampers with its interests or
that of its allies was not a smokescreen. This is exactly what mediators
conveyed to Tehran regarding the seriousness of the US in cutting Iran's claws
or even chopping off its head if it persists with its behavior.
This is what was revealed by
Oman's foreign ministry, Japan and also Germany; not the rumors made by Iran's
media machine claiming that mediations are aimed at stopping Iran from
destroying the US and its allies' military bloc in the region.
It seems the Iranian game is
about to end. There is no escape for the regime and its supreme leader but to
accept the reality based on the Quranic verse: 'And do not walk upon the earth
gloriously. Indeed, you will neither tear apart the earth nor reach the
mountains in height.'
The arrogance of the Iranian
media and its rhetoric will never win a war written by the pens of the Mullahs
alone; or else, their destiny will be similar to that of Saddam Hussein and the
officials of his regime whose pictures are printed on play cards.
They should believe the lie of
the divine victory which Hezbollah's leader Hassan Nasrallah brags about. This
is due to the fact that Almighty Allah does not help impostors and oppressive
