Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps: a deep insight into Iran’s most powerful institution

By Aram Mirzaei Described by the Western media as a “shadowy organization” involved in “clandestine activity” across the Middle East, not much is truly known about the “Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps” (IRGC) in the West as Western governments and media outlets are having an increasingly difficult time figuring out the IRGC and the role it plays in both the domestic and foreign relations of Iran. You can’t understand Iran and

The Syrian conflict: An Iranian perspective on the Russian involvement and a potential Turkish cooperation

Foreword by the Saker: the latest article by Aram Mirzaei is truly a rare gem as it outlines an Iranian view on the conflict in Syria and on the Russian involvement in it.  As I, and others, have mentioned several times, Russia and Iran are de-facto allies in this war, but unlike AngloZionist “coalitions”, that does not mean that one is subordinated to the other and that there is only

Nuland meets Surkov to warn about imminent NATO attack by Scott

Since Maidan in Kiev two years ago, American life has become a reality show from the Discovery channel. Every day Americans are discovering something new. For example, this January they discovered that the US stock market is full of hot air, and that the world has turned nervous and angry. Also they have discovered that they have bolshoy (big) problem getting around the Persian Gulf. Which has been, if you

Israel vs Iran: Israel loses, *big* time

Today I have already posted two excellent analyses of the (possibly temporary) failure of the USA to submit Iran to its will: one by Alexander Mercouris, the other by Soraya Sepahpour Ulrich.  I shall not repeat their very arguments here, mainly because both see this as a conflict between the USA and Iran, whereas I see that as a conflict between Israel and Iran in which Israel attempted, but failed,

The Middle East Wars The Middle East is once again swept up in wars. Not since the early 80s has the Middle East experienced such a wide array of conflicts.

In tangent with the Syrian crisis

Will Russia finally agree to deliver S-300/S-400 to Iran? (UPDATED!)

It is often forgotten that what happened to Russia with the French Mistrals is very much a case of bad Karma coming back: just as Russia had already paid France for the Mistrals, so had Iran already paid Russia for the S-300 SAMs.  Both Russia and France reneged after the contracts were signed and finalized.  And just as France’s reputation will suffer from the Mistral fiasco, the Russian reputation will

Discovering Iran: a travelogue

by Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich Marcel Proust once said: “The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” During the past two decades, I visited Iran on numerous occasions staying 10-14 days at a time. This time around, I stayed for 2 months and heeding Proust, I carried with me a fresh pair of eyes. I discarded both my Western lenses as well as my Iranian
