God Bless the souls of Irans fallen war dead.

Iran is a blessed country, as we have seen all who raised their hands and voices on Iran are now either dead (Saddam), on the run (Talleban)or dying (MKO)all at the hands of their supporters and at the cost of their bloods.

Rest assure the twists and turns of time,,,, is not to be influenced by any neo-con or a new world order.Whatever the case Iran comes on top and falls on its legs.

Bless Iran

God Bless Iran indeed. Iranians have paid a very heavy price for their national independence and freedom. Just a visit to the Beheste Zahra moves ones soul. Iranians should never forget the ultimate sacrifice of its many martyrs. The unending rows of young brave faces brings both immense pride and serenity. Iran stood alone and its sons with hearts of lions shed their blood for every inch of its scared soil. The thousands of war wounded and many gas attack victims are also the real hereos of Iran. NEVER FORGET YOUR BRAVE SONS and DAUGHTERS IRAN who stand guard for you.

May god always protect Iran and bless Iran Zameen.
