Some Analysis on Iran

Below, please find three articles that provide some decent analysis on Iran, at the same time that they critique some of the idiotic, sicko American 'leftists' who have lined up behind the most retrograde/reactionary forces within the Iranian theocracy, and who are doing so shamelessly, under the excuse of buying into the mullahs' 'anti-imperialism'. 

Even if we stay kindly polite and take this as an oversight on their part and believe that they completely (if moronically) believe in whatever comes out of Ahmadinejad's mouth, they consistently (and it is instructive to see what things are systematically overlooked) forget to ever take into account all the collaboration this regime has provided the imperialists: e.g., the mullahs' stabbing in the back of the Nicaraguan revolution in the 1980's when they collaborated with the Reagan Administration; and, more recently in the 21st century, their collaboration with the Americans in the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

The first article looks at how the movement in Iran can keep its independence, and what kind of solidarity it needs from abroad:
Iran: their solidarity and ours (Yassamine Mather; HOPI/July 10, 2009)

There are also two very good articles looking at some of the sickos* of the 'Left', most notably the very sickly AND sickening MRZine:
MRZine and Sex Change Operations in Iran (Louis Proyect; July 10, 2009)
The Tragedy of Left's Discourse on Iran (Saeed Rahnema; ZNet/July 10, 2009)

[*Note: the adjective 'sicko' is too kind, but let's just settle for that for now!]
