As an iranian, I disagree with you my friend. We are going to be much weaker every year. Before the revolution Iran was one of the most powerful countries in the region but after the revolution in 1979 our economy, military and even grandeur in the world is decreasing every year.

All around the world think that we(The people of Iran) are terrorists and no one respects our history anymore. It has been announced by the government that Price growth in Iran is 35%! And our major problem with our government is the lack of freedom in our country. Islamic Republic imprisons and executes every people who is disagree with it. So if you are really from Turkey, I'm telling you that DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE THAT IRANIANS DID IN 1979.
