    It's not. And just like these nuts you point to don't speak for all Americans. The fundies in Iran don't speak for all Iranians, who are quite pro-American.

    You're just giving the republican the benefit of the doubt, that you'd never extend to a democrat, A. And 2, John McCain sets as chairmen of the senate committee on armed forces. Given the relationship between our countries, such a conspicuous person shouldn't be making jokes about something the US has a history of actually doing. But more to the point, when you take all McCain's comments on Iran, for years and years now, sorry, but he is decidedly not joking about his desire to take hostilities to Iran.

    You should stop using your broad brush on Iran.

    The Iran We Don't See: A Tour of the Country Where People Love Americans

    Probably no country in the world is more mischaracterized in Western eyes than Iran. Most Americans' perceptions of Iran are limited to images of President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad delivering anti-American speeches and crowds chanting "Death to America!"

    Americans are more liked by Iranians than the citizens of any other country in the Middle East. It's really jacked up that so many Americans seek to sabotage that.

    Even if the will of the Iranian people meant a single thing (which it doesn't under their theocracy) you're spouting BS not backed by a single statistic. But hey nice pictures call me when they have "we love America day rally":

    Iranians are pro America, even though we're choking them with sanctions. Too bad you didn't learn how to get along when you were coming up.

    With the US now aiding Saudi Arabia in Yemen, Im predicting here and now the nuke talks are off.

    _____________________________________


    Another example of the untold fondness that Iranians have for Westerners:


    “Iran is the most charming country on Earth”
    John Simpson: Iran is the most charming country on Earth - Telegraph

    EXCERPT "What you would encounter is a genuine delight to see you: a distinctly old-fashioned affection for westerners, who have vanished from everyday life in Iran. Eating in a Tehran restaurant can sometimes be a trial: so many people want to greet you and indeed pay for your meal."CONTINUED


    The British author (John Simpson) of the same article relates his experience at a "Death to Britain / Margret Thatcher” demonstration.


    EXCERPT "The crowd pushed and shoved, and shouted “Marg bar Tacher” – “death to Thatcher”. I asked the cameraman to stand on a low wall and film me as I walked through the angry demonstrators. “I really don’t think you should do this, John,” he said, with a troubled look at the mob. .....

    I weaved my way through the crowd, smiling and explaining that I was a Brit, and they opened up a pathway for me, shaking hands and bowing.

    I finally reached the ringmaster, a professional demonstrator who was beating his chest, the spittle shooting from his mouth in his anti-British fervour. “Welcome, welcome to Iran, sir,” he said, and actually kissed my hand. It went down well on the news that night, I promise you." CONTINUED


    My own daily experiences with the Iranian people were equally pleasant.
