Where all your dreams come true!
Actually, Both a country (Iran) and once an empire (sassanid, selucid, and just plain Persian.) Birthplace of Zoroastrianism, and the coolest person in C3C, XERXES I!
Hey, that looks like persia!
the most civilized and powerful empire until even after the romans fell. in 559 BC, the persian king Cyrus the great defeated the Mades controlling what is now iran, iraq, and some other countries. Cyrus set out to create a powerful empire. in fact, he created THE FIRST EMPIRE. the word "Persia" comes from the greek word "persis" which means empire. the relative strength of the persian empire at the height of its power was like the relative strength of modern day, china, india, russia, EU, US and japan put together. the persians were the first people in history to give men and women equal rights, abolish slavery and write the very first human and animal bill of rights. they also built in 400s BC the very first stadium, the apadana in persepolis (later burnt down by alexander). the apadana was able to seat 15 (yes, fifteen thousand) people in it, with space left for a grand ceremony. this massive bulding was roofed. unlike the collosium. the arcitectural and worth of this single building, if it lived through the fire alexander put it through, would have dwarfed the city of rome.
The persian empire was a god compared to rome. when rome attacked persia (battle of carhae) with 44 thousand soldiers, a 10 thousand man army from the persian empire crushed the romans, and sent tehir general's head back to rome.
people commonly mistake persians for arabs, this is a fatal mistake, persians are aryans like the germans. they migrated from southern russia. NEVER CALL A PERSIAN AN...
Greek name of the empire of ruled by the Indo-European peoples of the Iranian plateau during the Achaemenid dynasty. The name got carried over by Europeans for more than two millennia. In actuality the inhabitants of “Persia” for millennia have called it Iran, meaning “land of the Aryans”. “Persians”, Iranians, were responsible for some of the greatest contributions to the modern world. Some examples are the concepts of universal human rights under Cyrus, or Kourosh, the Great, the development of the first postal system, intercontinental road system known as the “Royal Road”, modern algebra, medical procedures and analysis of disease, and overall the first empire to form a multicultural basis and the concepts of “states” which have formed the basis of organization that nearly all modern countries follow to this day.
Persians have formed some of the most fundamental concepts in Math, Biology, Chemistry, governmental organization, and modern human rights.
The BEST country in the WORLD with the most attractive people which unfortunately got screwed by a couple of turban-wearing cockroaches with lice crawling beards.
Persia is also known as Iran but call it Persia anyway.
wonderful country with an extremelyinteresting history, got fucked by religion, casuing many to become atheists after escaping the government
persia used to be an example of successful imperialism. now it's just an example of failed imperialism.
An ancient Empire that once owned the known world. They were a major power, rivaling Romans and even capturing Emperor Valerian and reducing him to a slave. Islam sent the Persian Empire into ruins. Eventualy the empire came back in the 16th century to become a power yet again. However, religious fanatics took control and sent the Empire spiraling to its end. Persia was forced to play European powers off against each other during Imperialism and eventually showed improvement under the Pahlavis. However, religion yet again screwed the Persians when Ayatollah Khomeini came and ruined the country.
Persia always showed strength and modern thought until religion came and brought weakness and outdated principles of Arabs.
2 mistakes that need to be pointed out:
1. Islam did not send the country into ruins. If anything, it re-vitalized the country. The state of Iran nowadays is horrible, but it is not religion's fault. It is the fault of those who are in power who use religion to control the people.
2. Persians, as well as Afghanis and Indians are the original Aryans. Germans are NOT Aryans. Europeans are NOT Aryans. Aryans were NOT white. It is VERY offensive to Persian culture when white nationalists call themselves Aryans. The reason for white people calling themselves Aryan stems to the 19th century when a bunch of dumbass German philosophers tried to link themselves to Aryans because they found a comple of words in German that resembled a couple of words in Persian. German later took this and tried to call himself Aryan so that he could seem like a superior race. This is because Aryan in both Persian and ancient Indian language (sanskrit) means "noble". Hitler also stole the swastika from the Hindus and turned it into an evil symbol, when in reality it is a symbol of peace and harmony.
Persia was the land of the Aryans. GERMANS ARE NOT ARYAN. EUROPEANS ARE NOT ARYAN. Nowadays the closest people of Aryan decent are Persians, Afghanis and Indians.
