    Some of you may remember , me saying that , since I live in the UK as a political exile and refugee , and that I have been a blogger on various web sites in the past 16 years , and smetimes critical of the Iranian political system . Then my family in Iran was threatened , by an agent of Iran , an anti-socialist man , with the name of Homayoon Farahmand , an informant of the regime . He is a businessman living in Glasgow , Scotland . My name is Adel Khodai ,  and I live in Liverpool . UK .


    I complained to the British police , about being terrorised by this man , who sent continuous letters to me , saying that the health of my parents is bad , and I should go back to Iran ! Where I know , I will be taken on false charges and imprisoned like many others . The British authorities then , published a name similar to his name , saying that such a person , may have also conducted similar plans , with regard to Iranian exiles in the USA also . The name that BBC published , was Homayoon Farahan . A name very similar to his name , to warn him and caution others against him . He  since then , not contacted me , or bothered me !

    I have recently posted articles , critical of the some politicians in Iran , and including this forum . Today the media , reported that , supposedly , a colonel in IRGC, with the name of ; Hassan sayad khodai ( translated as , Hassan Hunter khodai ) was assassinated in Iran ? You must understand that my surname is very rare indeed in Iran . Also the translation of this name is a hunter or killer of khodai !

    To me it is obvious that , their spy in England was exposed by myself , and I showed that killing my parents , will not return me to Iran , or stop me from posting or blogging . And threatening me with being killed or shot here in UK , by a theatre , will not stop me from blogging .

    State terrorism by reactionary elements , will only make me more determined , to voice my opinion against the corrupt elements in Iran . So come and kill me or shoot me or ...... makes no difference .

    Long live the democratic Republic of Iran . Down with reaction and dictatorship .


    Adel khodai .

    Only an effective government by the people , a democratic majority , is capable of reversing this trend of blockading of Iranian commerce . A compromised apparatus , ruled by right wing liberals and Bazaar , will never antagonize the " boss " USA !  By building a nuclear deterrent  , that enables a conventional escalation against them . Leading to if necessary , a nuclear war against them . Iran will therefore become weaker every day , while stupid , traitor JCPOA talks are carried out . The country gets weaker and poverty rises . Street protests turn violent . All authority collapses . The Americans and their terrorist cohorts ,will then march in , bring back the Shah , while many of the Bazzari and land Lord and wealthy owners , will line the street and cheer and clap ! They would rather a puppet USA king in power , than they share power with Iranian socialists and democrats . The clergy will side with them too .... They say " ....we are not Marxists..... "

    TMA1 wrote " Who said that? That sounds like a silly attempt at masking appeasement to the west. " yup , you are right about appeasement . But it is even worse than that . Those in power ( The right wing and clergy ) , including the late Ayat . Khomeini , who wrote a letter to Americans , before arriving on Air- France jet to Iran , saying that " ...we do not mean to confront or fight against USA.... " and exterminating the left wing , were in collusion with them , covertly . Their trick has been , how to hide their tracks ? Hide their capitulation to the west ? Hide their brutal oppression of the left wing ? How to look revolutionary to the people ? But you know what they say ! You can fool some of the people , some of the time ! Socialism in it's democratic forms , is a well established form of politics , across many countries . Even Bernie Sanders is safe from persecution in the evil USA ! National interests are gained by participation of the entire population . A true Republic .

    When I was 3 to 5 years old , my father took me to Tehran Airport to see the late Shah , return from abroad . He put me on his shoulders , so I could see the Shah  pass . His son was in this black Limo near the rear window , and his father was next to him . Seeing me , on my father's shoulders , the late Shah , pointed me out to his son ! Maybe he remembers , maybe not . But I remember . He is a year older than me ! Hamdoreh .

    A king or Monarch , can not be part of a democratic system . Because a king or Monarch , is a class of one . As opposed to say the workers , who are a class of millions . And they have sufficient numbers to elect MP' s to parliament . The present Iranian parliament only has one of two workers as members , and is not democratic either . The only place for an individual , who calls himself a king , in a democratic system , is as a private individual , who according to his wealth and class ( economic ) has a right to one vote . Say if there were X numbers of wealthy traders , allowing them Y numbers of MP . Then addition of one extra trader or " king" , will add insignificantly to number of votes for traders .

    In this YouTube video , the crown Prince , calls for more protests , support of the Army , unity , democracy  . Without political parties , and existence of fighting among different groups , there exists no organised force of alternative , to form a democratic system . A new constitution . All that prolonged mass protests will achieve , is to provide opportunity for loss of control by present authorities , allowing a coup or foreign intervention .

    An analogy can be to a glass of stale water , and an empty Jug for water . One can not throw away , the stale water and die of thirst , when the Jug is empty . One has to fill the Jug first , then throw out the stale water , then fill the glass with fresh water and drink ! That is why political parties of the masses of workers and farmers and teachers must form , however difficult a task , and then a provisional democratic constitution written , before referendum . Continuous protests leading to " overthrow " of present authorities , however stale their minority apparatus , will leave Iran at the mercy of Chaos and foreign intervention .

    I suggested years ago , putting down some nuclear material on the ground , to attract Zionist spy and capture them . They did this and captured Zionist special forces in Iran . Since no Helicopters or plane monitored at the time , then most probably satellites detected ? How sensitive are their detection ? By putting down various sizes of material , in or above ground , we can find out . And build our installations in secret , immune from Bombing . But I also suggested putting down nuclear material in different locations , to suggest presence of nuclear plant , as diversion , against bombing runs . And this should continue .

    Also exiting the NPT , may bring with it the danger of bombing by the enemy , of known nuclear sites and escalation to full scale war . It is important to build the nuclear defence before exiting the NPT . In case of attack , deterrence force ready , against escalation into shock and awe !

    - BREAKING: Iran & United States talks in Doha ended in less than an hour

    The Iranians walked out after the U.S. side refused to guarantee that they would not pull out of the deal in the future.

    Iranians called Biden's regime weak and incompetent.

    Perfidious Albion (the UK) and his bastard son (the US) aren't to be trusted in any sort of deal, signed on paper or otherwise. Unless your name is Israel, a deal with the Anglo's is never honored in the long-term.
    Best thing Iran can do is wait for B.R.I.C.S to create a universal alternative to SWIFT and join that payment system as soon as possible.

    The question is , what Road does a man follow , given a choice ? Given two options , not too dissimilar in nature . Both giving the same material benefits . All this posturing by Iranian authorities : Anti- imperialism ! Anti-zionism ! Joining the SCO or BRICS , is it because the authorities ( the many Iranian Hizb-Allah ) have seen the light ? Or is it because they have no choice ? If by some chance the Americans lifted the sanctions , and fixed a favourable ( for import / exporters ) Dollar exchange rate , then would all these " revolutionaries " not abandon Russia and China and Venezuela ?

    Of course they would , since the right - wing , Bazzari , reactionary , fake revolutionary , super - " Islamic"  America - worshippers , see themselves in " antagonism " , with Russian policy ( having independent foreign policy , national -democracy , deterrence ) . Sorry to say ! They are more concerned with cutting the throats of democrats or fashioning a noose for the " opposition " ! Who are calling for the Army and security services " to put down their weapons against the people - not shoot them . " Surely the revolution is defeated . Surely the Iranians are a weak nation . 70 % of the Iranian " Hizb - Allah" ( the minority in power now ) in Iran are anti - Russian , 30% are pro- Russian .

    Yes, call in Tehran and request 40 x Schahed 129 to inclusive teams. Air bridge and they will be on the front in 3 days.
    Please add it every month. Payment is made with MIG-29M2/SMT or 35. What is Moscow waiting for?

    No idea how accurate or not but great news if true. I assume the latest Gaza variant will be in full combat test mode over there too?
    Didnt CAATSA result in the cancelation of Egyptian 35s? So they're sitting there idle then? Could be a win/win. Not sure the jews will be overly thankful to the yanks. Oh well....

    Russia buys 1,000!!! drones from Iran and expands the level of strategic cooperation
    https://ejmagnier.com/2022/08/13/russia-buys-1000-drones-from-iran-and-expands-the-level-of-strategic-cooperation/
    WOW

    2 million on average = approx. 24x Su-35
    other 36x Su-30SM2 ?

    With 1000 units, presumably of all kinds of drones, the Iranians can also build a manufacturing road in Russia. There would still be enough work for Iran.

    This is a very serious and deep partnership. That should now flow in the other direction. Get a couple of MIG-31 out of the warehouse and send the Iran 12-14 of them on B levels with weapons, training and support.

    Good news . I hope they get the planes ready for air to air engagements , over Iranian territory . Station them near the Persian Gulf and West border near Iraq . Teach pilots WVR combat also . Iranians do manufacture long range AA missile based on American Phoenix . But GarryB said that Russia has long range AA missile that is even longer range than the American ones . As long as we get a fix on the low RCS plane , with some kind of Radar , even ground Radar ? I think it important also to send good supply of Ammo and spare parts , to last a few months .

    The R-37M currently in service can hit targets at 300km range in the domestic version... 200km for the export RVV-BD model.

    With the US breaking all sorts of export agreements selling long range cruise missile weapons to eastern european countries, I would think joint development of various new weapons with Iran should be a good way of showing Russias displeasure and also helping Iran out...

    The new missile that will replace the R-37M is the Article 810 which is described as having a flight range of 1.6 to 9 times greater.

    Launching missiles at different altitudes greatly effects their flight performance, especially rocket powered missiles.

    An AIM-9 Sidewinder missile might have a range against an enemy target at high altitude of 30km when launched at supersonic speeds at a high speed target like a MiG-25 closing at high speeds, this is because the missile flying at altitude and already flying supersonically all the solid rocket fuel is used to accelerate the missile instead of having to climb and accelerate from a much slower speed... the altitude advantage and the added top speed allows it to fly much further as the high altitude launch means less drag slowing it down so it can attain a much higher speed in the thinner colder air and therefore coast much further.

    A launch from sea level and low speed... say from a helicopter and its range might be less than 10km.

    It would be the same with the R-37M... the 300km range is from a high altitude and high speed launch... launching from lower altitudes and lower speeds will reduce the flight range of the missile dramatically... a low altitude launch at slow speeds the missile might only reach 50km because most of the energy in its rocket motor will be used up climbing and accelerating to high speed while a high altitude launch means it is already high and already moving at speed so the rocket motor makes it fly even faster... which translates to range.

    For the same reason the Iskander ground launched missile has a range of 500km while the Kinzhal air launched version can reach 2,000km when launched from a MiG-31 at mach 2.5 and 18k altitude.... it is like adding an extra stage to the missile that gets it airborne and moving at high speed before it uses any rocket fuel.

    With a 1.6 to 9 times increase in range performance this suggests to me that the 810 is a ramjet powered missile... and the 1.6 times range improvement comes from also flying high and fast but also being able to throttle the thrust for fuel efficiency. The 9 times increase in range might be for a low speed low altitude launch where a ramjet motor does not have the penalty a rocket motor has because the ramjet burns all the way to the target so you can go max thrust full AB to climb from low altitude to high altitude and accelerate to high supersonic speeds and then throttle back to counter drag to extend flight range.

    In comparison a solid rocket motor burns at a fixed rate for a fixed period so running at low altitude the top speed of the missile is limited by the thick air so a normally mach 6 missile might only achieve mach 3 speed as it climbs and accelerates, and so it wont reach the heights the same missile launched from higher altitudes and higher speeds can achieve so its range will be dramatically reduced.

    With a ramjet however the engine burns throughout the flight of the missile so being fired from low altitude will still effect range but not so much... a bit like a jet plane they climb when they take off because they fly faster and use less fuel at altitude and any energy they burn climbing to altitude is recovered when it comes down again nearer the target (airport it was heading to).

    So if the R-37M has a max range of say 350km and a low altitude range of 50km then the article 810 would have a range of about 550km or thereabouts ( the competition was supposed to end up with a 400km range missile but that was with the MiG-31M which flys higher and faster than most fighters... so a 350km estimate is probably more realistic) for max range at high altitude and high speed, while low altitude and subsonic speed launch of 50 x 9 = 450km... which is quite reasonable for a ramjet powered missile.

    Of course a scramjet powered missile would be capable of rather higher speeds and higher altitudes and use a similar design but likely different more energetic fuels for greater ranges and higher speeds.

    (note that it is known that during testing in the 1990s that the MiG-31M with a standard radar (ie not the more powerful ZASLON-M that was developed for the MiG-31M) tested the R-37M missile using an Su-30 that was flying closer to the target to provide target information. The flight distance of the missile from launch to hit was recorded at 300km.

    Being an ARH missile it does not need a precise track of the target and nor does it need the launch aircraft to illuminate the target either.
