Reports say Turkey Behind Airdrop To ISIS in Tal Afar


By Live Leak and Information Clearing House.

Reports emerging that initial investigations point to turkey being behind the drops of aid/personnel onto Da'ish-held Tal 'Afar.

Erdoğan can't handle the idea of Iraq's PMU capturing Tal 'Afar (a Turkmen district).

the cameraman explains that this is not the 1st time nor the 10th time that airdrops have been dropped into Tal afar. this time it was recorded for evidence.

5 reasons Turkish forces must leave Syria

By Adam Garrie at The Duran Blog and Information Clearing House

Ali Haidar, Syria’s Minister for National Reconciliation, recently talked to Sputnik where he condemned Turkey’s continued illegal presence in Syria.

With some many world-powers complicit in looking the other way at Turkey’s illegal war on Syria.
Here are five reasons that Turkey must leave.
  1. International Law
The first and foremost reason that Turkey should not be in Syria is that legally, Turkey cannot be in Syria. The Syrian Arab Republic is a sovereign state and Turkish presence is not welcomed by the Syrian government nor does Turkey have any sanction for their invasion by the United Nations.
Ali Haidar said quite clearly,
“Our stance on the presence of Turkish military forces has not changed. This is the violation of the sovereignty and occupation of Syria”.
As allies, Russia, Iran and Hezbollah forces have been welcomed to coordinate their war on terror with Damascus. This is not true of Turkey and their fellow NATO member states.
  1. Bad Intentions
Where Syria’s actual allies are helping to bring stability to a country besieged by a plethora of terrorist groups, whose names and local allegiances constant shift, Turkey has had two goals in Syria, neither of which are productive, let alone moral.
Turkey first of all wanted to push for illegal regime change in Damascus, something which the Turks now quietly concede is an impossibility.
The second reason Turkey is involved is to weaken the position of Kurdish YPG forces in Syria. Turkey wants to create an effective buffer zone in both Iraq and Syria between Kurdish positions in the two Arab states and Kurdish regions of Turkey. This is why both the Syrian government and Syrian Kurds are uniquely united in condemning Turkey’s presence in the country.
  1. Working With Jihadists
Because there isn’t political will among ordinary Turkish citizens for a mass invasion, Turkey is in great part relying on rag-tag jihadists who when fighting for Turkey call themselves the Free Syrian Army, a name first assigned to a group of mainly US funded marauders in 2011. The original group disappeared shortly after its creation.
But the current FSA is more or less a byword for jihadists loyal to and funded by Turkey. Whether standing under an Al-Sura, ISIS or FSA flag, there is little difference in the intention, ideology or methods of these vile groups.
  1. Undermining Arab Independence
President Erdogan is well known to have Ottoman ambitions. This has led him to threaten not only Greece and Cyprus but also the Arab world which the Ottoman Sultan once ruled. Arabs fought long and hard to establishment their independence in the 20th century. The long fight was more recently against European powers, but prior to that it was a struggle against Ottoman rule.
To add insult to injury, Turkey is now accusing Iran of what Turkey is doing, namely trying to gain a foothold in the Arab world. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu accused Iran of trying to spread Shi’a Islam to Syria and Iraq, echoing the lie about a ‘Shi’a Crescent’.
Meanwhile President Erdogan accused Iran of trying to spread Persian Nationalism in the Arab world.
Although I have been critical of Iran’s role in Iraq, a role made possible only through the illegal US-UK invasion, in Syria, Iran has exercised restraint. Iran respects for Syria’s government and Syria’s secular way of life. The same cannot be said of Ankara.
By contrast, it is Turkey who is arming radical Sunni groups who put the lives of Shi’a Muslims, moderate Sunni Muslims and Christians in peril. It is Turkey’s President who shouts about restoring Ottoman provinces. No such words nor indications of direct actions come out of Tehran.
  1. Turkey’s Domestic Problems
With Erdogan facing problems on the home front, he really cannot afford his foreign adventures in Syria, not least because ISIS has been doing a strangely good job at keeping Turkish forces and their unreliable terrorist FSA at bay, although Turkey’s current (if not temporary) victory in Al-Bab may give Erdogan some buoyancy.
Between Gulenists, ISIS and Al-Qaeda sympathisers in Turkey, resurgent Kurdish PKK forces and Kemalists distraught by Erdogan’s increasing disregard for the traditions of modern Turkey, he simply cannot afford the giant distraction that his Syrian adventure has become. He ought to quit. Better late than never.
        6. The crimes Erdogan's daughter, son and son in law are doing with ISIS may eventually attract the attentions of the Turkish people, and the ICC....and history itself to show that Deonme Erdogan for all his lofty words is in fact nothing more than a self serving opportunist and small time mafia operator out to make money from the misery and death of his people, and those of his neighbors.....in the process of serving Israel's agenda.
      7. If its get to a shooting match in Syria, NATO Turkey will be a front line state and in a war zone....against Russia, Iran, Iraq. Hezbollah and China.

So the problem of the Deep State is essentially the CIA, and not even the entire CIA....if you speak to and listen to some of them, closely.

AND the Bush Crime family in Texas.......that's it?

THATS FUCKING IT???!!!!!!

Scott....... you are spreading CIA fear mongering propaganda like Rense.

YOU are saying the USA Deep State is all pervasive and inevitably all powerful, and cannot be defeated.....intelligent Americans who won independence from the British Empire, defeated Hitler, and won the Cold War lack the Cajones to defeat some low life mafia figures in Texas.....and some seriously misguided faggots in Langley?

Constructive Destruction: Are We Looking at a Color Revolution Here in the Shining City on the Hill?

by Scott Creighton at American Everyman

Last week Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said it “looks like” another Iranian Green Revolution is taking shape right here in the States. He said everything looks like what happened back then in 2009 when Hillary Clinton tried to get a US puppet, Mir Hossein Mousavi, elected in the Iranian presidential election but he lost by a landslide so she tried a color revolution instead. Mr. Dorsey seems to think the social media trolls are at it again, though he doesn’t actually call them trolls or mention the fact that Iran was a color revolution.

It’s still a good question, isn’t it?

Are we looking at the birth of a color revolution here in the States?

I think it is safe too say a number of the masters of the universe were displeased with the outcome of this past year’s presidential election. Not all of them perhaps and some have certainly taken a more “wait and see” approach since The Donald seems to be cowing in the face of pressure being applied to him and his administration, that goes without saying.

But there are factions that want him, Bannon, sleepy-eyed Jane and Miller out of the Oval Office in the worst of ways and they seem to be pretty dedicated to that end result in spite of the fact that Trump is becoming more bullish on Russia, toeing the line on Iran and bombing places like Yemen, Iraq and Syria with impunity like his “progressive” predecessor did.

He’s written and signed executive orders that give Big Banking all the perks they want and all the leeway to set up the next financial crisis they need to completely crush the economy at will and his picks for the various federal agencies all have one thing in common: they want to see the agencies they head destroyed as soon as possible.

So Trump is giving them everything they want, so far he’s a perfect pick for our next pragmatic dictator in chief… and yet some still seem to want his head on a platter. Why is that?

It could be they don’t trust Trump to stay the course when things get bad and his base turns on him, which is a key qualifier for such work.

Marvin P. Bush, the president’s younger brother, was a principal in a company called Securacom that provided security for the World Trade Center, United Airlines, and Dulles International Airport. The company was backed by KuwAm, a Kuwaiti-American investment firm on whose board Marvin Bush also served. According to its present CEO, Barry McDaniel, the company had an ongoing contract to handle security at the World Trade Center “up to the day the buildings fell down.”

Marvin Bush

The company lists as government clients “the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S Air force, and the Department of Justice,” in projects that “often require state-of-the-art security solutions for classified or high-risk government sites.”

Stratesec (Securacom) differs from other security companies which separate the function of consultant from that of service provider. The company defines itself as a “single-source” provider of “end-to-end” security services, including everything from diagnosis of existing systems to hiring subcontractors to installing video and electronic equipment. It also provides armored vehicles and security guards.

The Dulles Internation contract is another matter. Dulles is regarded as “absolutely a sensitive airport,” according to security consultant Wayne Black, head of a Florida-based security firm, due to its location, size, and the number of international carriers it serves.

Black has not heard of Stratesec, but responds that for one company to handle security for both airports and airlines is somewhat unusual. It is also delicate for a security firm serving international facilities to be so interlinked with a foreign-owned company: “Somebody knew somebody,” he suggested, or the contract would have been more closely scrutinized.

Heightened WTC Security Alert Had Been Lifted

The World Trade Center was destroyed just days after a heightened security alert was lifted at the landmark 110-story towers, security personnel said. [September 11]. Daria Coard, 37, a guard at Tower One, said the security detail had been working 12-hour shifts for the past two weeks because of numerous phone threats. But on Thursday [September 6], bomb-sniffing dogs were abruptly removed. [NY NewsDay]

Pre-9/11 World Trade Center Power-Down


Perhaps they are concerned his heart isn’t in the right place and that maybe he worries too much about his “brand” to do what they figure needs to be done in the coming months.

Or maybe this is all just a not-so-subtle warning from the servants of the masters of the universe striking out on their own.
.
I don’t know. Is this a color revolution taking shape? Did the populist undercurrent of this past election coming from both sides of the fake political divide put the fear of democracy in them? Did we really “vote the wrong way” or was Trump the Manchurian Candidate all along?
.
Was this past election like what I suggested a year ago… a designed catastrophe meant to usher in a new age of unelected technocrat board members to rule over us all? Is this part of the constructive destruction of the tattered paper-thin veil of democracy here in the Shining City on the Hill?
.(Scott does great Shakespeare Macbeth....all doom and gloom hopelessness...though signs are that for the moment most Americans feel a little bit more optimistic than they did under Obummer)
I don’t know. It certainly smells like a color revolution at this point, doesn’t it? 

What do you think?

CIA has subverted Syria since 1949.

.
.
.
.
Newly published CIA documents by the CIA show that the CIA has been at it against Syria since 1949.

Of course the release of such classified CIA information for the kind consideration of public interest FIA......SHOULD NOT make us default into believing that since the CIA has been at it since 1949....its somehow routine, normal and maybe even acceptable behaviour...and maybe this time again (2011-2017) its not acting on the orders of Likud Israel, but big bad oil corporations of the USA like Exxon-Mobile....from Texas.

But this time the dirty Jew deeds of the CIA are bigger and better than ever before...certainly bigger and better than 1949, 1957, 1958, 1982, 1986, 1991 and 2011-present. They are presently not so self contained as before with the previous attempts:

500,000  Syrians have died
1,500,000 are wounded
6,000,000 External Syrian refugees
7,000,000 Internal refugees
$350        billion dollar damage to the beautiful, multi-ethnic historic nation
                UN designated historic sites damaged
               The CIA has massed a criminal coalition of nations to destroy the Syrian regime, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, GCC, Turkey, NATO and Israel of course.

The CIA has creatd ISIS, the biggest terrorist organisation after the CIA.....its bigger and better than 'al-CIA-duh' and the prayer is that the ISIS foot soldiers armed with AK-47's and TOW missiles and MANPAD's will then march into Russia (5000 Russian Muslims), Central Asia( about 1000) and China (1000 Uigar Chinese fighting with ISIS in Syria, and 9,000 more in NATO Turkey being tained up by the CIA).

ISIS with the help of the CIA is in Afghanistan, attacking Pakistan already, AND ISIS is in Europe with the help of the CIA....ATTACKING civilians under the FALSE FLAG Gladio model.

Of course the CIA is also arming 10,000 's of Islamic fundamentalists 'MODERATES' in the words of the CIA, who will swill around the Greater Middle East when the job is done in Syria. 

Turkey has invaded Syria, and the slave pro-American government of Iraq has just conducted airstrikes inside sovereign Syria without the permission of the Syrian government, as have Jordan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Denmark, the French, the criminal paedophile worshippung UK 'state'...NATO.....and aliens from Mars.....and of course the USA attacking Syrian government positions to aid ISIS.

The CIA is now planning 'Safe Zones' in North Syria as a precursor to invading the whole country, and establishing an ISIS state made up Syria and Iraq....as with Libya

This time the CIA effort is a little 'different' in Syria than previously.....and its not about oil, its about ISRAEL.

The U.S. Carried Out Regime Change In Syria In 1949 … and Tried Again In 1957, 1958, 1982, 1986, 1991 and 2011-Today

By WashingtonsBlog and Information Clearing House.

 - The CIA backed a coup against the Monarchy in Syria in 1949. Douglas Little, Professor, Department of Clark University History professor Douglas Little notes:
Recently declassified records… confirm that beginning on November 30, 1948, [CIA operative Stephen] Meade met secretly with Colonel Zaim at least six times to discuss the “possibility [of an] army supported dictatorship.” [“Cold War and Covert Action: The United States and Syria, 1945-1958,” Middle East Journal, Winter 1990, p. 55]
***
As early as 1949, this newly independent Arab republic was an important staging ground for the CIA’s earliest experiments in covert action.
The CIA secretly encouraged a right-wing military coup in 1949.
The reason the U.S. initiated the coup?  Little explains:
In late 1945, the Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO) announced plans to construct the Trans-Arabian Pipe Line (TAPLINE) from Saudi Arabia to the Mediterra- nean. With U.S. help, ARAMCO secured rights-of-way from Lebanon, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.  The Syrian right-of-way was stalled in parliament.
In other words, Syria was the sole holdout for the lucrative oil pipeline.
.
(Indeed, the CIA has carried out this type of covert action right from the start.)
.
In 1957, the American president and British prime minister agreed to launch regime change again in Syria. Historian Little notes that the coup plot was discovered and stopped:
 
On August 12, 1957, the Syrian army surrounded the U.S. embassy in Damascus. Claiming to have aborted a CIA plot to overthrow neutralist President Shukri Quwatly and install a pro-Western regime, Syrian chief of counterintelligence Abdul Hamid Sarraj expelled three U.S. diplomats ….
 

Syrian counterintelligence chief Sarraj reacted swiftly on August 12, expelling Stone and other CIA agents, arresting their accomplices and placing the U.S. embassy under surveillance.
***
More importantly, Syria also had control of one of the main oil arteries of the Middle East, the pipeline which connected pro-western Iraq’s oilfields to Turkey.
***
The report said that once the necessary degree of fear had been created, frontier incidents and border clashes would be staged to provide a pretext for Iraqi and Jordanian military intervention. Syria had to be “made to appear as the sponsor of plots, sabotage and violence directed against neighbouring governments,” the report says. “CIA and SIS should use their capabilities in both the psychological and action fields to augment tension.”
***
The plan called for funding of a “Free Syria Committee” [hmmm … sounds vaguely familiar], and the arming of “political factions with paramilitary or other actionist capabilities” within Syria. The CIA instigate internal uprisings
,for instance by the Druze [a Shia Muslim sect] in the south, help to free political prisoners held in the Mezze prison, and stir up the Muslim Brotherhood in Damascus.

Newly-declassified CIA documents show that in 1986, the CIA drew up plans to overthrow Syria by provoking sectarian tensions.

Neoconservatives planned regime change in Syria once again in 1991.
.

Indeed, the U.S. has carried out regime change in the Middle East, Asia, Central and South America and North Africa and Africa for six decades.

Alex Jones in the White House briefings...its a start

.
.
.
.
Trumps fortunes will AUTOMATICALLY CHANGE once the alternative right, and even just alternative media get a look in at the Whitehouse press briefings.

The Trump vaudeville show of constantly locking horns with the MSM, with the tired lines of 'You are fake' is wearing thin, and he quickly needs to move on from this long agonizing Hari Kiri sight.....which is painful to watch for those of us who GENUINELY wish him well, relieved that Hillary didn't get in, but that Trump fulfills some of our dreams for the USA and the world.

'We' brought Trump to power.

Trump should not fear his natural friends.......through poor advice from whoever in his administration. I don't like Pence....he looks scheming and shifty...a WH Bush stand in to Reagan in 1981. In private and public, and in Europe, he contradicts everything what the President says.......not good for President Trump, but good if you are winking to the anti-Trump crowd to replace him.

Trump needs to connect with his natural supporters in the USA and the world through the alternative media......otherwise in the word of Alex Jones he is in dire straits. He will be out of power this year....as all have predicted.



We also hope that Alex Jones is not a token last minute, too little too late effort on the part of Trump, and that at least 30 alternative media groups from all over the USA are invited to the White House Press briefings by the President including Infowars, Brietbart, antiwar.com, American everyman and so forth...with Sean Spicer, with the President and with any senior government officials talking to the media.

They also need to be given extra funding from the government to cover their thread bare budgets....and operations, with staff who often work selflessly for next to nothing, and often have to resort to begging publicly.

President Trump should also consider setting up his own media houses to get his message across to his audience first.

http://mostaqueali.blogspot.com/2017/01/white-house-press-conferences-briefings.html

Locking out the press entirely as Tillerson did recently is not a viable option, but will only increase the fake innuendo to a new higher level, in the case of the President, Bannon and Miller.

Its not good to have the limelight on Alex only, but that at the press briefings he should be surrounded by like minded fellow travelers.

And ofcourse Alex obviously understand that going on national TV is a different kettle of fish than speaking to the alternative young crowd, and the usual jargonese that is used by the alternative crowd.

And speaking to the government in a press briefing is 'pure'

Speaking to Donald Trump on the phone or in person off camera or on camera is 'pure'

Speaking to a government officer on a desk and chair through a formal tv interview is still 'pure'

Taking tax payer money from the government in order to reach out to more people is 'pure'.

Getting fixated with a narrow agenda, and Israel behind the scenes is not pure.

Send anything save a dog to the press briefing including Watson, until a replacement can be found for him. ....and the Whitehouse should not dictate who Infowars sends to the press briefing. I am confident Alex can conform to White House press briefing NORMS without making an ass of himself.

Mashallah...سلام ملت بزرگ ایران

Every country is entitled to debate what constitutes a top economy.

Iran is now the 18th largest economy on earth according to CIA estimates, at about $1.5 trillion PPP GDP. (2016)


No amount of little JEW envy can change this fact. The name Persia is synonymous with wealth and opulence ......throughout history, save for brief interludes of the Arab invasion of (633–656) AD, the Mongol invasion of (1219-1221) AD.....and finally the evil British Empire and its domination of Persia from 1880--1953. During WWI, passive weak Persia became a running battle ground of greater powers, and the British the worst offenders who in their execution of war against the Ottoman Empire, murdered 50% of the population of Iran, in the process of the Great War in the Near East.


Their excuse for the genocide in Persia was that in times of war....confiscation of ALL food and transport in Persia must be given priority for their war machine in neighboring Mesopotamia over the lives of Persians.


Persia was not even an official colony of the evil British empire to be treated extremely badly....like else where. 


The Evil British Empire run by the Jewish Rothschilds stated that it was normal to kill 4-5 million people in order to sustain the war machine of the British empire from 1916-1919......along the process of destroying the Ottoman Empire, and creating Israel. 


According to Western sources, Iran will become much more rich....by 2050, as will the rest of the world. Perhaps an economy nearer $3.5 trillion or even $5 trillion in the future?


There are many factors which will determine Iran's growth. And determine its ultimate size by 2050.


The illegal mullahs in Tehran installed by the USA/UK in 1979, would have to go. It is obvious to most normal people that a mullahs place is in the Mosque, if they behave themselves talking about religious matters, rather than running sophisticated big countries like Iran. The mullahs have been a disaster for Iran, though obviously the USA/UK thought/think the mullahs are good for Iran.....as they do the Taliban (1994) CIA created,..... 'al-CIA-duh' CIA created from thin air in the 1990's......and ISIS again CIA created from 2014.


The faults of the mullah regime are glaringly cartoonish clear. We don't have to be expert investigative reporters of Iranian extraction to know the true facts of Iran under puppet mullah rule........that is why the USA/UK brought them to power after all:

1. The mullahs sustained the Iran/Iraq war for 8 years; causing $500 billion worth of damage to the country, and the death of possibly 1 million boys and men fighting Iraq, and CIA Saddam, an American recruited CIA agent since the 1950's. Saddam the American agent sought peace after two years of the war in 1982; the mullahs in Tehran were not interested. The mullahs in Tehran did not use their power to prevent a disastrous war with brother Iraq, which by no means was inevitable, despite the best efforts of the CIA, in Jordan Amman, persuading CIA Saddam of this 'historic opportunity' in 1979. The mullahs thought somewhat cynically that sustaining the war was good for their power consolidation, and defeating their perceived rivals the Tudeh and others.

2. The Iranian civil war 1981-1982 between the mullahs and the Tudeh left alliance; 100,000 dead.

3. The mullahs promoting pan-Islamism, and general Arab culture over and above traditional Persian identity. For a genuine Iranian who loves his country this might be considered a GREAT crime.

4. The de-legitimation of Iran's standing in the world, with silly OTT antics; taking over foreign embassies; threatening foreign writers ; holding Holocaust revisionist meetings and so on and so on.

5. The destruction of the Middle Class; their partial expulsion from the country 5 million of the most educated articulate Iranians in favor of the illiterate villagers, who are constantly promised great things, and used primarily in the security apparatus to keep the rest of the population in line.

6. Running a banana Republic economy which could collapse at any time. $2 trillion worth of Capital flight by wealthy Iranians who refuse to or cannot do business in mullah Iran. The current wisdom that mullahs and mullah cronies are the only people privileged and qualified to own and run significant parts of the economy through Bonyard charities, and corrupt banks that give loans to friends of the mullahs.

7. Running a very repressive police state, which has accounted for the death of possibly 30,000 political prisoners since 1979. A regime that executes more children than any other regime on earth.

8. Seeming to posture internationally, usually through speeches against Israel and the USA, and through talking up the Uranium Enrichment issue designed to niggle the USA and Israel. And through the support of Hamas and Hezbollah directly, WHILST not making any real efforts to defend itself militarily......spends JUST 3% of GDP on defense, and is not a significant conventional power....at rank number 18, with Israel at 11, and the USA at number 1. Turkey at 10; Pakistan 15, Egypt 17.

9. Upwards of 3 million drug addicts in mullah Iran where the regime touts its conservative austere, puritanical credentials, but is unable, and unwilling to tackle this serious national problem. Credible reports indicate that aspects of the mullah regime are involved in the narcotics trade into Iran from Afghanistan, and towards other countries such as Iraq and Turkey.

10. The mullahs are modern slave runners selling "surplus" destitute Iranians to Gulf Arab countries, who face an obvious bleak future there after. Any Iranians who dare criticizes this national mullah shame are punished with imprisonment or death.

Gay Mattis should not get a hard-on over this single crime issue.

AND the copy paste from wikipedia:


"The economy of Iran is a mixed and transition economy with a large public sector. Some 60 percent of the economy is centrally planned.[9][10] It is dominated by oil and gas production, although over 40 industries are directly involved in the Tehran Stock Exchange, one of the best performing exchanges in the world over the past decade.[11][12] With 10 percent of the world's proven oil reserves and 15 percent of its gas reservesIran is considered an "energy superpower".[13][14][15][16]"


The BEST ASSET OF IRAN are its Aryan people......bizarrely mullah Iran is producing some of the best scientists in the world.....many of whom emigrate to the West, sadly.


"Price controls and subsidies, particularly on food and energy,[21][22] burden the economy. Contraband, administrative controls, widespread corruption,[23][24] and other restrictive factors undermine private sector-led growth.[25] The legislature in late 2009 passed the subsidy reform plan. This is the most extensive economic reform since the government implemented gasoline rationing in 2007.[25]"


Too many mullahs, with zero economic skills and knowledge making too many bad decisions. The inclusion of bearded, certified, technocrats does not help.


"Most of the country's exports are oil and gas, accounting for a majority of government revenue in 2010.[26] Oil export revenues enabled Iran to amass well over $135 billion in foreign exchange reserves as of Dec 2016.[27][28]Iran ranked first in scientific growth in the world in 2011 and has one of the fastest rates of development in telecommunication globally.[29][30]"



"The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) are thought to control about one third of Iran's economy through subsidiaries and trusts.[146][147][148] Estimates by the Los Angeles Times suggest IRGC has ties to over one hundred companies and annual revenue in excess of $12 billion, particularly in construction.[149] The Ministry of Petroleum awarded IRGC billions of dollars in no-bid contracts as well as major infrastructure projects.[150] Tasked with border control, IRGC maintains a monopoly on smuggling, costing Iranian companies billions of dollars each year.[146] Smuggling is encouraged in part by the generous subsidization of domestic goods (including fuel). IRGC also runs the telecommunication company, laser eye-surgery clinics, makes cars, builds bridges and roads and develops oil and gas fields.[151]"


Major source of inefficiency and corruption for the state economy


"Welfare programs for the needy are managed by more than 30 public agencies alongside semi-state organizations known as bonyads, together with several private non-governmental organizations. Bonyads are a consortium of over 120 tax-exempt organizations that receive subsidies and religious donations. They answer directly to the Supreme Leader of Iran and control over 20% of GDP.[146][152] Operating everything from vast soybean and cotton farms to hotels, soft drink, auto-manufacturing and shipping lines, they are seen as overstaffed, corrupt and generally unprofitable.[153] Bonyad companies also compete with Iran's unprotected private sector, whose firms complain of the difficulty of competing with the subsidized bonyads.[153] Bonyads are not subject to audit or Iran's accounting laws.[154] Setad is a multi-sector business organization, with holdings of 37 companies, and an estimated value of $95 billion. It is under the control of the Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, and created from thousands of properties confiscated from Iranians.[155]"


Major source of inefficiency and corruption for the state economy.

A recent study shows that Iran will be among 32 most powerful economies in the world by 2050.  
The study that was carried out by professional services giant PwC said Iran would be the 17th most powerful economy in the world within the next three decades. 
It added that the country would outperform the incumbent European players like Italy, Spain and the Netherlands whose ranks would be 21st, 26th and 32nd, respectively.      
The Islamic Republic would also lead several Asian players like South Korea (18) as well as the Philippines (19) and other Malaysia (24).
Iran would closely track Pakistan (16) as well as regional rivals Saudi Arabia (13) and Turkey (11). 
At the top of the list of the best performing economies by 2050 would be China ( at $19 trillion in 2016, largest economy in the world measured by PPP and depending on whose prediction you believe $55--65 trillion by 2050) which will be followed by India ( $38-40 trillion) and the United States ($33-35), as reported by The Independent
The biggest surprises may be Indonesia (4.....no not really, Indonesia is now the 8th largest economy on earth at $3 trillion.......so by 2050 at $8--10 trillion   yes!!!), Brazil (5), Russia (6) and Mexico (7) which will be ahead of the Asian giant Japan (8) and the current European powerhouse Germany (9).
In December 2016, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said it expected Iran’s economic growth to reach as high as 6.6 percent for the Persian calendar year that ends on 20 March 2017.   
It emphasized that the higher production and exports of oil after the removal of sanctions and exports would be particularly instrumental in boosting Iran’s economic growth that was in recession last year.
A country with a population of around 80 million, Iran is currently one of the biggest economies of the Middle East and has a gross domestic production (GDP) of around $380 billion.
The main driving force of Iran’s economic growth is exports of oil. The country is currently exporting close to 2.3 million barrels per day (mb/d) of oil and analysts are already expecting the volume to increase to as high as 2.5 mb/d. 
Based on the budget bill for the next Iranian calendar year, the country expects to sell its oil at around $50 dollars per barrel thus expecting its annual oil revenues to be around $33 billion. 
Officials in Tehran have already emphasized that serious plans have been devised to increase the country’s oil production to as high as 5 mb/d over the next few years – what is expected to eventually generate higher oil revenues and accordingly boost growth. 

(Oil exports in 1977 was 5 million b/d but due to the actions of the USA/UK this dropped to 2.5 b/d there after.

The other factor for low oil exports after the 1977 PRODUCTION high of 6 million b/d.....is the donkey stupidity, corruption, ineptitude of the puppet mullahs who have driven a good deal of the technocratic class out of the country, in favour of promoting their bearded unqualified cronies.....and severe lack of investment in petro-chemical plants and capital ever since.......oil does not magically come out of the ground.....you fucking donkeys!

In the long term Iran cannot develop as a $5 trillion PPP GDP economy merely by selling oil and gas.

Iran will fundamentally have to gear its economy to its Asian partners....and of course the illiterate mullahs will have to go.)
