Medieval Modern Mullah Iran?

.
.
.

Is it possible to have a modern country under mullahs, who use a 1300 year old book to partially guide state policy?

NO!

However, aspects of such a strange UK/USA conspired state may have modernization/industrialization because such a state must exist, however tenuously in the 21st century, in the real world.

It must show to its people that there is some progress, in some areas of the state......and that the UK/USA installed mullah state can achieve good things for its people.

Electricity generation was 23 billion Kwt in 1979.....and now it is nearing 350 billion Kwt?

Steel production was 2 million tons in 1979....and now it is nearing 14 million tons.

PPP GDP was $400 billion at 2012 prices in 1979......and now it is over $1,000 billion.

However as with the Soviet Union, state sanctioned economic targets are themselves not enough to see the REAL strength and development of a state .....after all in 1989 the Soviet Union boasted 1700 billion Kwt electricity generation, steel production at 170 million tons, and a PPP GDP approaching $5,000 billion..................but it ALL failed.

Why?

The Jews who ran the Soviet Union sabotaged the country.......for their own specific globalist agenda, which required a single powerful USA.....which would promote Israel's agenda. Then the Jews flew off with the looted state coffers and went to Israel, London and the West generally. 

Those few Jews who chose to remain behind, formed the new economic elite of "Capitalist" Oligarchs of  Russia/Ukraine and 130 odd billionaires .......in essentially feudal mafia societies with very small middle classes (20%.......the size of the middle class in most LEDC's/Third World countries). 

Interestingly the JEW process of feudalification has also started in the USA, after serving the best part of 11 years promoting Israel's agenda in the Greater Middle East. Feudalification is the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of the Jews. Unlike the Soviet Union, where indoctrination was heavy....there will be "some" resistance to this Jew process in the USA.

The Bolshevik state was highly centralized and inefficient.

The Bolshevik state spent too much on defense.....at 18% of GDP. N. Korea spends 26% of GDP on defense and still exists.

Gorbachev's Perestroika and Glasnost reforms were too rapid, which over whelmed the basic Communist system. They should have adopted Deng Xiaoping "Communism with two faces" model which was a more cautious approach to reform.

Whatever the reason for the demise of the Soviet Union, mullah Iran finds itself in the same situation as Communist China during the 1950's--1970's when the country was economically and politically isolated from the West.

It is not enough just to achieve economic targets set in a government charts, but that serious heed must be paid to SOCIAL INDICES of development, to create a more wholesome society which is balanced and harmonious.

You don't want 5,000,000 educated middle class leaving the country for the West, taking with them $1,500,000,000,000 whilst a sizable section of the new generation naively look up to America in admiration.......STILL....whilst the USA commits war and genocide around Iran. 

This would be considered a FAILURE of the puppet mullah regime, but not measured in numbers.

Iran’s installed capacity of electricity generation to hit 70,000 megawatts

Iranian Energy Minister Majid Namjou says the Islamic Republic will increase the installed capacity of electricity generation to over 70,000 megawatts this year.


Namjou made the remarks during the closing ceremony of the 12th International Electricity Exhibition on Sunday.

Representatives from several countries including Italy, France, Germany, China, Turkey and South Korea took part in the four-day event in Tehran.

He said Gotvand power plant in Khuzestan province and Siah-Bisheh power plant in Mazandaran province, scheduled to launch this year, will increase the country's installed capacity of electricity generation to over 70 gigawatts.
Iran ranks the first in the Middle East in terms of electricity generation and is the 15th largest electricity producer in the world.

Electricity consumption has decreased considerably in Iran since the implementation of the subsidy reform plan, which paved the way for more electricity exports to Azerbaijan, Armenia, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Turkey, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

The subsidy reform plan, which began in late 2010, has enabled the Iranian government to begin to gradually reduce energy subsidies over the course of five years, with low-income families compensated with direct cash handouts.

Iran seeks to become a major regional exporter of electricity and has attracted more than $1.1 billion in investments for the construction of three new power plants.

The Pentagon is a criminal mafia organisation

.
.
.

The Pentagon can't account for $3,000,000,000,000 ......nobody knows in the "Greatest nation on earth" where and what the money was spent on...there was no auditing. 

"al-CIA-duh" deviously and highly accurately destroyed precisely that part of the Pentagon that did have a civilian audit office, auditing moderately all Pentagon expenditure, on 9/11.

Imagine our surprise if the Pentagon do not know how $50--80 billion was criminally looted by American civilian and military officers; money meant for Iraq and Afghanistan . 2003--2012.

The Pentagon is in Afghanistan harvesting Opium for their narcotics business. 

This includes importing narcotics into the North America and Europe......the very places which the Pentagon are allegedly suppose to be protecting against "al-CIA-duh", and the local Afghan Taliban.

Righteous American citizens in order to make the USA successful again, and as the beacon for hope for all mankind, might want to dismantle the Pentagon as any BASIC plan for house cleaning.

Below is a copy paste report from Presstv.com, which is a government news agency of Mullah Iran.

Corruption in mullah Iran SOCIALLY is far far higher than in the USA, and TI has put them at 120 from the bottom country at 182, Somalia.

Corruption destroys society, and though TI subjectively focuses on social corruption (not an exact science) primarily, INSTITUTIONAL CORRUPTION can be as dangerous for a state as social everyday corruption.

The most successful states with the highest per capita income tend to be the least corrupt, and in total reverse, the least successful states which are at the bottom failed states, tend to be the most corrupt.

Corruption as a national problem is obvious.......the unaccountable Pentagon with a 1000 military bases around the world is also a problem, no less for the USA, and for the world.

The Mullahs are more corrupt than the puppet Shah, as the figures indicate below...indeed the mullahs have institutionalized corruption as a means of patronage, and staying in power. 

Mullah governance means state sanctioned corruption and medieval misrule, as ordained by the UK/USA originally in 1979.....the mullahs must be toppled from power by Iranians.

US can’t produce documents for $7 billion Iraq money it spent since 2003

By Presstv.com

A recent US government investigation has found that American army cannot present authentic documents for billions of dollars of Iraqi money it claims it has spent during occupation of the oil-rich Arab state. 

The total amount of funds unaccounted for has now reached about $7 billion, and American officials are worried that the Iraqi government would demand all or a portion of the money back, Foreign Policy magazine reported on Friday.

According to the report, which was released by the office of the Special Inspector General for Iraqi Reconstruction (SIGIR), the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) cannot produce about $1 billion of receipts for fuel and other supplies it bought in Iraq through the UN-created Development Fund for Iraq (DFI) since 2003.

The DFI funds were the result of Iraqi oil and gas sales or was left over from the "oil-for-food" program.

SIGIR discovered that the receiving report, which documents that the goods or services were actually delivered to the intended recipients, was missing for 95 percent of the Corps transactions.

"Missing receiving reports involved commodities vulnerable to fraud and theft, such as fuel, televisions, and vehicles. SIGIR has not concluded that fraud or theft occurred, but the absence of receiving reports raises questions," the report stated.

It added, "Instead of using the required receiving reports to document fuel deliveries in Iraq, USACE officials told us that they maintained a fuel delivery log book. However, the log book is missing. In the absence of receiving reports and the fuel delivery log book, USACE has no evidence that shows whether fuel products paid for with DFI funds were received."

SIGIR also pointed that USACE did not have enough trucks equipped with meters to establish how much fuel was being transported to more than 100 sites across Iraq.

The agency further highlighted that it is impossible to determine the status of all the DFI contracts as the Corps failed to complete necessary financial audits.

"Without these audits, USACE cannot close out these contracts and task orders and assess whether the contractor owes the US money, whether the US owes the contractor money, and ultimately, whether the US needs to return unused DFI funds to the [government of Iraq]," the report said.


SIGIR is due to release a final report on the US government's handling of billions of dollars of Iraqi money in January.
