Brain Drain: Iran--Death of A Nation

When a nation's brightest lights choose to pack up and leave, those left behind lost a little more hope for the future.
Everyone in the class wants to go abroad.

"The main point for going out of Iran is we have no job security here and there is economic tension," says 32-year-old travel agent, Nazaneen.

The number of educated young Iranians trying to leave the country appears to have increased in the last year since President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took office judging by the numbers sitting the IELTS exam.

The figures have increased two-and-a-half times this year over the same period last year, according to the Australian administrators of the test.

A year ago, the International Monetary Fund said Iran had the highest rate of brain drain of 90 countries it measured.

Ahmadinejad and the prancing mad monkey mullahs have led Iran down a disastrous path, which can only result in ruin for Iran. But then, that was their whole aim, nicht wahr? Anyone who knows anything about the legend of the 12th imam, understands that it is the goal of devout Iranian Shias to bring about the apocalypse. Ahmadinejad and the other monkeys are on schedule, if not just a bit ahead.
