I'm not saying rich people don't deserve the wealth they have, or that choices haven't made some people poor, but shoving the excess wealth into peoples faces day in and day out is going to make some people snap. In this case, a lot of people snap.

Every country has a rich upper, middle and poor class.

Your point about rich people causing the current crisis is misdirection.

All the Sanctions placed on Iran by the International Banksters is responsible for the current economic and civil unrest.

Sanctions, the unmentioned 800 pound gorilla in the room.

Sanctions might be part of the problem, but rich (corrupt) people are definitely part of the equation.

Corruption a way of life in Iran
"Only a few politicians have expressed concern over corruption, arguing its continuation could lead to social unrest and the system's collapse"
www.middleeasteye.net...

"Iran’s billionaire tycoon Babak Zanjani has been sentenced to death for corruption. He is accused of fraudulently pocketing $2.8bn. The 41-year-old acted as a middleman who organised oil deals for then-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s government, evading sanctions while accumulating a great deal of wealth for himself in the process."

Hmmmm.



The lavish displays of wealth and skin are a side of Iran seldom shown, but the account is also drawing attention because it was created on the heels of a government crackdown on social media activities. Last month, for example, seven young Iranians received suspended sentences of jail time and 91 lashes for posting a video online of themselves dancing to Pharrell’s “Happy.”

They're playing with fire.

If it's real.

Given current events.

Their future does not bode well.

Corruption is a way of life, everywhere.

Levying Sanctions on Iran to bring about 'regime change' is what this is really about.

Every response here in these threads to inflate the rhetoric, build a false pretext and keep the thread on the live page is only a further waste of my time.

Certainly one rule for one,

I did a fair amount of observation work in central London during nights esp on Fri and Sat and the way many of these people act is farcical.. They will claim to be strict Muslims yet they are Piss#d as farts snorting coc aine off strippers boobs.

The Women are no better, My lasting impression of the middle eastern super rich are a bunch of deluded arrogant f#cktards, that is a general observation granted but it is fair from what I witnesed as a fly on the wall..

“We Love our city of Tehran. We are in no way trying to put a difference between rich and poor. We are trying to show the world how beautiful Tehran and people from Tehran are. The Middle East is always on TV receiving negative attention and we just wanted to show that Tehran is not like that. This page is in no way political and we never had any bad intentions. We never thought the page would make headlines all over the world. Some of the people featured in this Instagram account don’t live in Iran. #richkidsoftehran #welovetehran”

I have to laugh at this quote, especially the part of not wanting to put a difference between rich and poor, Their instagram is called Richkidsoftehran! I would say a lot of the rich kids probably don't live there, they are few of the fortunate enough to live elsewhere.

The protests are against an oppressive dictatorial regime.

Who cares what people have?

Either the Islamists will arrest them to appease the masses or the angry mobs will tear them apart if they overrun the place. Would suck to be them.

It's been like that in Iran for decades, many of the Iranians, rich or not, have a leaning to Western culture and there have been protest like now, in the past. TV documentaries on Iranian aspirations have also been made, and the people are very forward looking. Now because there are sanctions on Iran's government ethos the like of the Daily Fail uses it's conservative propaganda mouthpiece stance in the UK to do possibly harmful mischief, and all the while rich women and celebrity in general are hanging out of their bikinis is daily fare in the paper. Those kids should be left alone by foreigner agitators, they only want to be like the West, and show the West how the feel...in that way, they are probably part of the protests themselves. the account is likely in the West anyway.

Here's a short video on Iran made nearly a year ago, it shows some of things I was talking about, but there are much more in-depth docus on the subject. While some of the info is not so accurate timewise, it is essentially accurate.



This one is much longer and older by an American Reporter,

It's convenient to blame others, but sanctions have in the main been lifted in Iran.

Iran has high unemployment due (in part) to the burgeoning number of young people. 50% of the 80 million Iranians are under 30 and youth unemployment is a third. High prices, personal repression of liberties, economic mismanagement, corruption, lack of investment, and so on are all contributing factors.

The fact is that the Iranian authorities are sitting on a problem of population. They simply cannot satisfy their young people with a meaningful existence.

So, blaming it all on sanctions - and by extension "the West", is just simplistic.

Thats a lie, new ones were announced late last year after their ballistic missile test.

Citing violations of the nuke deal even though Iran is been in full compliance.

Stay tuned, more false accusations and sanctions to come.

Sanctions are siege measures aimed at weakening foreign gubments to precipitate Regime Change (coup) by foreign influence, in this case NATO alliance of US and EU nations.

Now that unrest has taken hold due to sanctions, more false pretext will be found to levy more sanctions to increase the pressure on the populace to further demonstrate against the Iranian gubment. Hijack of the protests to occur by insurgent activity as well.

You are one of the ATS members promoting this charade here now and during other regime changes, covering up the Western manipulation and meddlesome behavior, downplaying the covert involvement of the West to take over Iran, like all the rest.

Er, no it's not. The UN sanctions against Iran were lifted after Iran showed progress in halting its nuclear programme. This happened back in 2015/16. Feel free to point to a narrative that indicate sanctions returned. Note that today there is a burning oil tanker off the Chinese coast which is shipping legal oil and not sanction-busting oil.

How tedious. Like I said, blaming sanctions on Iran's precarious current situation is simplistic. I think a 30% unemployment rate amongst the educated youth may provide more discontent that you want to even consider, or corruption, or lack of civil liberties, or a whole pile of other reasons. If the religious dictatorship in charge of Iran cannot carry the support of its population then it will fail, but it will fail because it is what it is, rather than because millions of Iranians are secretly employed by the CIA.

As far as new new sanctions, the inter webs and MSM are crawling...

googled

Like I already said earlier, its pointless to argue with cover up specialists on these threads, their only concern is eliciting more responses to keep Iran on the recent and live pages.
