The organized resistance movement of NCRI and MEK are the core of the problem this regime is facing, is MEK popularity inside and outside Iran. Writes Saeed Abed
At home, Iranian officials are drowning in a water crisis and trying to sustain themselves through the Vienna talks. Can they save themselves with the collars they have, especially the economic leverage? Of course, things do not seem to go their way. The director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Grossi, caused a storm even though no agreement was reached on the issue of inspections. Before returning to talks on its nuclear program, Washington called Tehran’s position a bad one and threatened to tighten it if it did not cooperate more. But Iran has its excuses ready in advance. Iran’s envoy, Mohammad Reza Ghaibi, downplays differences with the IAEA and says the Vienna talks should focus on the complete lifting of sanctions. The he goes further and says that Iran should not be expected to continue to put pressure on itself until the sanctions are lifted.
Israel, meanwhile, is pushing for Israeli Defense Minister Bill Gains to say that Tel Aviv [Jerusalem is now Israel’s capital] wants an agreement that fills the gaps and includes all of Iran’s activities in the region, including its missiles and paramilitary forces.
But more dangerously, Gains emphasizes that his country is working to upgrade its capabilities to deliver a military strike on Iran’s nuclear program, and this is an obvious statement. Who in Israel knows Iran’s nuclear program more than the responsible bodies in Iran itself?
Given that the Iranians have the necessary facilities to enrich uranium and given that they have all the complete nuclear components, they can determine the time and duration and ratio of uranium enrichment. why delay the time (attack) as former Prime Minister Barak pointed out? Cohen: I think the issue is militarily and operationally complex, but it is not impossible. Moderator: Can Israel do this alone, without the cover of one of the major powers and without US support? Cohen: Israel has the power to deal with this alone, as we have done twice before. Al-Arabiya: Despite all this, Iran is doing its job and is counting its fingers in a ready way, and first complains to the United States in a situation where: He has been shouting inside Iran for years.
The recent cry for water is not new or surprising, as the former Minister of Agriculture warned a few years ago; Warning that water shortages will force 50 million Iranians to leave the country, this early forecast had no effect on preventive policy. Iran is now ranked 131st in the world in terms of water management. Currently, more than 5,000 villages are suffering from water shortages and 7,000 villages are supplied with water by tanker. Perhaps the Iranian regime should not have exploited this number of barriers. Because Iran was a land of water before Iraq and its policies not only dried up the water, but all successive governments under Khamenei’s robe are accused of mismanagement. The Researchers examines the role of the current government in escalating the situation, but we must first know how the regime spends its property and, more importantly, what it spends it on.
We are not talking about the assets that are in the reserves of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. $ 200 billion, according to Iranian officials, led by former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. We are also not talking about the budget of the Revolutionary Guards. $ 5 billion of this year’s $ 33 billion budget. Naturally, the lion’s share of military institutions comes from the army and police and intelligence accounts. We also put aside assets that Iranians have never seen, which have been ruined by sanctions, $ 300 billion since November 2018. We put projector on the special expenses of Iran for its paramilitary forces in only three countries; Syria, Iraq and Yemen. $ 16 billion annually, according to the British Center for International Strategic Studies, in relation to funding to Hezbollah in Lebanon, and a fixed $ 700 million in annual funding for the Iranian weapons and missile system alone, which amounts to 100,000 Hezbollah missiles. Not considered. Therefore, this militarization is from the account of growth and development, and with a glance inside, we find that: 60% of the Iranian people, i.e. 51 million Iranians, are below the poverty line, and … the salary of a male and female nurse is from $ 167 per month, and that of a teacher is $ 120 to $ 200 at best. How much does a person who takes a weapon get paid? Haidarion and the Fatimids and other Pakistani and Iranian elements have an average of $ 2,000 a month. Of course, this is not just a bad management, but the plan of the Khomeini regime since its inception. Destroyed three trillion dollars in regional wars.
But let’s go back to $ 16 billion economically. Annual contribution of paramilitary forces.
Let us suppose give them half of the amount to see what can be done with it in Iran. Let’s start with what is most important to Iranians; Government hospitals are the most in need to save them. 60% of them are worn out, most of them are more than 40 years old and only 50 of them are in the capital. Building a hospital is a national dream. This is what Anoushirvan Mohseni Bandapi, the former governor of Tehran, said, and the Deputy Minister of Road Construction, Mohammad Jafar Alizadeh, replied that the cost of building a hospital for each bed is 400 million tomans, which is 10,000 dollars. So this dream is very difficult to realize. The largest hospital, or medical town with a thousand beds, will cost the Iranian government $ 10 million. So let’s build 10 hospitals in the capital for $ 100 million and 100 in and around the capital for $ 200 million. We add a total of $ 300 million to $ 700 million for its equipment. What about education? According to official Iranian reports, a school containing 18 classrooms in Lorestan province in central Iran costs 3 billion tomans. That means $ 71,000 may not be the school crisis in big cities, but the situation is very different in the provinces of Ahvaz and Sistan and Baluchestan, which suffer from marginalization. According to the Minister of Education, the shortage of schools in them reaches 90%. So we will leave one billion for schools and build 14,480 schools with it. Maybe we can create real job opportunities for one million and two hundred teachers and 23 million students will have better education. Another issue to consider; It is to look at the interests of the Iranian people, and more importantly when we think about their health. The number of deaths in car accidents per year, which reaches 17,000 feet, is due to the poor condition of roads, which is more than the number of people killed in the Iran-Iraq war, and this is related to the former speaker of parliament Ali Larijani. So what is the disadvantage of building some bridges and road repairs in major provinces, especially in Tehran? There are 14 million people living in the capital where air pollution is more than 6 times the maximum pollution that the health organization has emphasized. I present to you the version for the solution; A bridge here costs between $ 3 million and $ 4 million, which is the equivalent of a 313 Fateh missile, so we don’t need three more of this type of ballistic missile to build the medical town we talked about, and now it costs money. Take two missiles from the Fateh 110 or Zelzal or Zulfiqar missiles with an average cost of $ 2 million, which have been wasted in Iraq in favor of the militias and build 60 schools so that we can change the plan at least once. Progress and development at the expense of militarization and mobilization We do not need the $ 16 billion that will bring about change. The system still has 55,000 ballistic missiles.
Finally, what remains unsolved and somehow ignored is a society just like a barrel of gun powder, that when is ignited it will demolish the entire regime, this is no fantasy it was demonstrated in 2017 and 2019 and most resent demonstration in November 2021 in Isfahan, when the entire regime suppressive forces were on full alert, but the People in Isfahan demonstrated how they can up-root this rotten regime. The organized resistance movement of NCRI and MEK are the core of the problem this regime is facing, is MEK popularity inside and outside Iran.
