When we hate so much justified or not, we eventually becomes consumed by our hatred to the point of irrationality. Whatever our grouse with the government of the IRI we should always endeavour to recognise their positive achievement and commend it. That is the ways of the civilised world why blind hatred belong to the era of the cave man or the barbarian.

Wow, this is great achievement! I am so excited to see Iran advancing in this area. Any industrial analyst knows this advancement means a lot in other industrial disciplines as well. By showing this Iran is sending the signal about their other capabilities which only an experienced analyst can understand. Just one hint, the gap from here to aircraft engines is getting reduced :-)

The report in Tabnak is very interesting. The link has farsi and I can not copy paste it here. It says on what items they managed to obtain tools despite the sanctions.

Also it seems their turbine efficiency is inline with world efficiency in this area visiting Mapna web page around 34%. Indeed a job well done.

I also agree with Anon 1:52. posts like Anon 10:14 is becoming disgusting specially for those whom have lived abroad a long time. It is uncivilized and has no point. I wonder why the site director let it pass through the filtering. Posts like "Anon 10:14" has no value. f I was the regime and want to show how barbaric the opposition are I would post online ridiculous comments like that and undermine the sanity of the opposition. People should grow up and understand the audience abroad are grown ups and not blind by hatred. Many lives has gone wasted but I can not change Iran to a better place by being hateful and rejecting everything happening.

I do agree with your comments, and other similar comments above, that our political leanings regarding the regime should not cause us ignore developments in the country, especially such a game-changing industrial development as covered in this post. These are developments for Iran, and must make all Iranian citizens, and those who care about the country, very proud.

But unfortunately rejectionism is also a trait of the regime. With all the power in their hands, the regime still keep the opposition, and anyone not seen as being with them, in jail, under house arrest, or marginalize their importance. If you read comments by Kayhan's Shariatmadari, for example, you will understand the depth of hatred by the ruling hard-right toward anyone outside their small circle (about 11% of popular vote in the last presidential election).

Your anger about the uncivilized nature of some of the rejectionist comments here should be also, above anything else, directed toward the ruling group, starting with Khamenei.

@ zeino71,what's so "disgusting" and "uncivilized" about my comment? Could it be more "disgusting" when compared to the systematic use of rape,torture and executions in IRI dungeons by a bunch of irrational and insane barbarians? The Islamic regime is very lucky for now because the opposition against it hasn't reached the "barbaric" level yet. If you like "filtering" so much go and visit the IRI. They are expert at filtering everything from information to money laundering, prostitution and drug dealing. Thanks Uskowi.

Mr Uskowi, your point taken, I totally agree the regime is totalitarian and eliminating everything considered danger to its existence but day by day these eliminations are getting harder and harder. My anger over my father's life wasted and my life wasted abroad instead of a democratic Iran goes towards assisting to reduce injustice in world by UN and NGO's, helping Iran develope further and better for the sake of the middle class Iranians. Help Iranian students to have a better life abroad in anyway possible so they become next generation middle and upper class when they return or even stay abroad. Establish pathways for Iranian n general to forward their ambitious and rightful freedom demands and demand for better future under the situation that they are currently in with minimal cost to Iran and Iranians. I am sure the overall effort will lead to rationality to win whatever it may be.

@Anon 10:03, In Farsi it is known as "Khale zanak" comment. it is unexpected when coming from the class of people you possibly belong to otherwise you may not have visited this site. it doesn't have the effect you are seeking and it backfires. It makes anything else you say less valued. Simplistic name calling like regime of torture and rape and bla bla bla does not reflect the complexities in the current regime and the mafia around. The same simplistic behavior towards regime makes you or any opposition like you less credible and childish and not taken serious. The name calling is as silly as if I say US a neu-conservative regime of Vietnam massacre! The era, the circumstances, the group in charge ... all is lost in such approach and most important it doesn't provide information on possible solution. In other words there is no information content in your words whatsoever. Opposition needs to provide precise information and follow up. For example for the current post (steam turbine) question could be: Is it economical for Iran to build these turbines? Are they efficient? How much does it differ if we use Japanese 40% efficiency vs MAPNA's 34% are we in general loosing money on energy consumption or is it justifiable?
On political level for those opposition interested in keeping sanctions informative questions would be: How did they circumvent sanctions in 6 different ways? What helped and what we learn from it? What are the dual uses of the high speed micro turbines? Why has MAPNA become important these days. How did they win Malaysian contract and outbid Siemens? Why is their engineer in jail in Malaysia? ... You see a clever opposition can take a lot of points from the news letter of the regime if he doesn't reject it at first! but Alas ...

A sign for shift of attention from nuclear technology to other sectors which suffered under heavy pressure of sanctions.

@zeino71.

You certainly ramble on like a "Khale zanak"! Your logic just doesn't make any sense because the regime is what it is a primitive and barbaric Tazi dictatorship. The opposition should be concerned with the conduct of the regime in a human rights content,not steam turbines !
If that's "simplistic" according to you then good ! There is only one "solution" and that is for the regime to lay down its arms and step aside to allow the Iranian people decide their own future without religious bigots constantly interfering. They should be back in their mosques and do what they do best,namely funerals as required. As simple and "childish" as that.

@ Anon 7:12
Thought to tell you your comment was read. What mentioned in my prior post was in answer to your question with an example of non-rejectional approach, otherwise wont bother to reply at all. I don't think site directors likes here to be about us. As there is no more question I don't think this should be continued any further. Long live
