    It's still a fundamentalist government right?

    A government that has vowed to wipe the Israeli nation off the map right?

    So, just how are they 'different'? are they more moderate? have they toned down any? Is is all just rhetoric or was there a valid reason Canada severed diplomatic relations with Tehran in 2010, the first time ever outside of war....

    The ****ing over-the-top rhetoric in the defense of a president whose loyalty should be questioned is preposterous. FFS, Boehner is a "traitor" for visiting Israel, members of congress are "enemies" according to your president......and you accuse a loyal American who is exercising his constitutional right to impeach policies and actions of government?

    From a bunch of bullies who have destroyed with rhetoric every opponent from within and without, including an ally like Netanyahu and you accuse others of hate....?

    That's disgusting
    Or better yet, why don't you just read the thread so I don't have to waste my time responding to your ignorant, mind numbing, irrelevant posts?

    I can speak liberal. Which is why you are being pegged.

    In what language does "Death to You!" not mean just that?

    I agree with you that Obama doesn't agree with Netanyahu. But do you think that Netanyahu's opposed to doing what he thinks is best, without much concern for what Obama thinks? IOW, it's quite likely that Israel will bomb Iran, so either way, there's no worries for those that are scared that Iran might someday develop a nuclear weapon, and might someday use it on their nemesis.

    I guess that's fine....just peachy.


    So when that same phrase was used in striking a death sentence against Canada's Ambassador ken Stephens, they were, like, just kidding and all the RCMP security is unnecessary?

    Severing relations was a dumb move.
    Pure politics.

Therefore when, for example, Sen. Lindsey Graham is running his mouth about how Iran is more evil than ISIS (a group that slaughters people for fun), their hateful rhetoric is very limited.

    But regardless, the phrase has been around for so long (almost 40 years) that it's become a parody in of itself. "Freedom Fries" for example. Originally intended to be anti-French; by this point, it's a punchline in a comedic routine. That's why Khamenei was so dismissive of it when the crowd shouted it.
    I dont hate Iran, I see what it is doing and dont wish for it to continue.

    Crack open a history book and do some reading for once.

    Ooopsie, your hypocrisy is showing. But then what's a little hypocrisy, when you have no shame?

    ... Persian.

    Literal translations from one language to another don't work. For example, in German dreikäsehoch is slang that literally translates into three cheeses high. That doesn't make a lick of sense in English.

    It's only when you look at its non-literal translation, like you would "Marg bar Amrika," that you get what it means.
