    God Bless President Trump.

    IRAN BURNING: Shock Gas Price Hike Triggers Violent Protests After Subsidy Cuts.

    “There are also reports that protesters have begun targeting banks, after video was posted online of what appears to show the Central Bank In Behbahan, Iran being engulfed in flames as demonstrators chant.”


    The oil industry is broken, the economy is dead in the water, inflation is at 30 percent and rising, there’s little food, and little hope for younger Iranians. These demonstrations could easily become a referendum on the incompetent and corrupt government currently in power. That’s what happened in neighboring Iraq and Lebanon. And it wouldn’t take much to start a revolution in the streets in Iran.

    President Donald Trump's abrupt decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria will be hailed as a victory in Russia and Iran and a betrayal
    among Kurdish and Arab opposition forces that have waged a seven-year war against the Damascus regime, experts and former officials say.

    The withdrawal, if carried out, will "provide Iran with solid control over the entire arc of the Levant from Baghdad to Beirut," said Nicholas
    Heras, Middle East security fellow at the Center for a New American Security think tank.

    DERP.

    I wouldn't go so far as to compare Iran (Persia) to Sub-Saharan Africa. Sub-Saharan African cultures are closer to Australian Aboriginals or our native savages in North America.
