    The ones not living up to their full modern potential? The ones who just can't share technical credit with their many highly paid foreign rogue scientists and technicians as every national achievement in partnership with them suddenly becomes only proud, indigenous, regime sponsored breakthroughs relying only on the smarts of the Iranian people? The self-appointed Islamist leaders who are highly desirous of being the spiritual spearhead that will single-handedly deliver Imperial Islam from its centuries old doldrums after its former Golden Age to taking its supposedly rightful position on the world stage as the final religious solution for all mankind?
