The state of failure and weakness of the mullahs’ regime, which has ruled Iran for over four decades, is no longer a secret. This predicament is evident to all, so much so that even government newspapers are openly acknowledging the impasse the mullahs’ regime faces.
In the political discourse of the Iranian regime, especially in recent years with growing whispers of change and regime overthrow, the propaganda machine and think tanks of the regime’s intelligence and security apparatus constantly attempt to sway public opinion and Iranian civil society. They often claim that if Iranian society were to embark on another revolution with the intent of toppling the regime, it would result in a deadlock, civil war, or even draw parallels with Syria or North Korea.
The primary aim of such propaganda is clear: to perpetuate the perception of a deadlock and maintain their grip on power, while discouraging alternative narratives.
However, they seldom acknowledge the calamities the mullahs have wrought upon Iran and its people during their more than four decades of rule.
The scandal of the mullahs’ regime has become too glaring to ignore. Everyone recognizes that Iran has, quite literally, become a salt marsh, and this regime has reached an impasse.
A cursory glance or a deep, contemplative examination of Iran’s current political, economic, social, and environmental situation reveals this stark reality. This issue has become so pressing that even the regime’s media occasionally acknowledges it.
This time, a state-run newspaper, Etemad, on October 8, 2023, under the headline ‘Danger is Closer Than You Think,’ addresses the destruction and devastation caused by the mullahs and the associated deadlock.
In the opening of its article, the newspaper describes the term ‘civilizational danger’ as a threat that endangers the very foundations of a nation’s historical life, political and cultural existence. In comparison, issues like separatism and ethnic differences pale in significance.
The article proceeds to highlight the shortcomings of the mullahs’ regime, emphasizing its crude approach to development. The regime’s profit-seeking policies often conflict with environmental preservation, prioritizing immediate gains over principled standards of production and industrialization and the interests of the country’s citizens. Instead, these policies serve the interests of regime officials and their associates.
The article also criticizes the 7th development plan of the current government, which, during the review and approval process, appears to prioritize indiscriminate construction projects like dams without considering their environmental impact and the welfare of the people. As a result, such endeavors not only fail to bring about development and prosperity but also incur significant losses for both the current and future generations of Iran.
The report goes on to enumerate some of the regime’s destructive policies, including the sale of the nation’s wealth and resources, the haphazard construction projects by the IRGC and its officials, the loss of agricultural land, the desiccation of numerous farms in the south, and the depletion of forests and natural resources to build luxury villas, ultimately endangering Iran’s natural landscapes and leaving the land barren.
Furthermore, the article highlights the regime’s failure in cultural domains, emphasizing its ineffectiveness in preserving and promoting indigenous cultures and national heritage. This inefficacy has led to the isolation of Iran, its talents, and artists, as government-produced cultural and artistic works lose their value.
The result of these policies is the accumulation of the people’s fury. To illustrate this point, let’s consider some confessions from the regime’s own media. The state-run news agency Fars has admitted to the people’s accumulating fury, stating: ‘We are witnessing periods of anger accumulation, with a growing desire to release this anger compared to the past. Previously, this anger was vented once every ten years, but now this interval has shortened.’
As a result, the matter is an accumulated anger that can explode at any moment, which is tied to a spark that must be contained and controlled has become the regime’s main concern. It possesses the potential to erupt with tremendous force, removing all obstacles in its path, and posing a severe security threat to the regime.
In such a situation, the regime’s leaders seem to have no alternative but to resort to familiar tactics in quelling uprisings, by speaking about an empty progress and victory.
