They are a theocratic dictatorship.


    Have you ever traveled throughout the Islamic world or had extended stays in completely different cultures. I spent 10 - 11 months hitch-hiking, walking etc in Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey etc without a single hostile encounter even though I looked American.
    Your anecdotal evidence means absolutely jack and ****, facts are facts and they are undeniable, Iran is a theocratic dictatorship,


    The "Death to America" stuff is all meaningless hyperbole as explained by the following author:
    Oh ****ing spare me they have a literal government recognized death to America day the rallies are government sponsored.

    “Iran is the most charming country on Earth”
    Bwahahahahaahahaaha!!!! Unless you're openly gay, or promote a religion other than fundamentalist Shia Islam or attempt to petition your government for a redress of grievances by peacefully assembling, all of which are regularly punished by death in that theocratic hellhole.

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

    Excerpt “In Tehran, you will encounter a genuine delight to see you: a distinctly old-fashioned affection for westerners, who have vanished from everyday life.
    A few discerning people are coming back quite starry-eyed from their visits there.

    What always strikes me in Iran is the normality of it.
    Yes because I find a nation in which women not wearing veils or Hijab are beaten in the streets by religious police as completely normal.

    Asserting that a country that executes gays for being gay, does not have freedom of religion or freedom of speech, which calls for the eradication of other nation states, and which officially denies the holocaust and hosts holocaust denial conferences and invites overt neo-Nazi's and members of the KKK is "normal" is either laughable or disgusting, I can't decide which.

    Actually it was GW Bush who invaded and conquered Iran's biggest enemy and handed Iraq to them on a silver platter. Without Iraq to worry about, Iran was able to reach out and help its friends in Gaza and Lebanon and expand it influence in the region further destabilizing it. Bush was the Shiite and Iran's hero and Obama has nothing to do but try and make sense of it all. It is a perfect example of why having the most powerful military in the world doesn't mean a GD thing if you do STUPID things with it.

    Congratulations on combining a false and hackneyed attack on President Bush with a stirring apologia for the American-hating commie liar who is now disgracing the White House. That is a stock bit of leftist propaganda designed to cover B. Hussein Obama's rear. Good luck selling it to anyone but the most loyal supporters of MSNBC, the Daily Kos, and Mother Jones.

    In other words, do you support relinquishing the US high-tech weapons edge if this results is less direct US involvement? For example, it's no secret that the KSA has its eye on the new F-35.

    I'm just curious about what trade-offs are acceptable in your view.
    We should be more than happy to sell those turd blossom F-35's.

    Calling me a liar is just the kind of personal attack people who share your political views rely on so heavily, and for good reason--you hope it will hide how weak your game is. But it does not make your lame attempt to whitewash your America-hating president's disastrous foreign policy any more believable.

    LOL You still deny that Bush invaded Iraq and ousted Iran's biggest enemy? You can't handle the truth and it is sad.

    Well, it now seems those ships and that carrier we dispatched to Yemen aren't allowed to do anything. They're just hanging around to watch the Iranians deliver whatever it is they're delivering. Typical Obama. The man's one big lying ass with ears.

    On second thought, maybe Obama dispatched the carrier and battle group to protect the Iranian ships.

    This is not a zio-Neocon hang up.

    I already debunked your DAILY Mantra of the NON-issue 'Yinon' plan.

    Get some New stuff, and Stop GRATUITOUSLY Dragging your 'Israel' hang up into EVERY IRAN String/Post.

    Same crap EVERY day/post.

    You want to discuss Israel instead of casually/wackily slander it in every post, come on down to the M-E section and face the music.
    USFP for years now has led to the power vacuum that has given rise to both Iran and the Islamic State, the former I'm not concerned about, though you seem to have your knickers knotted up over it. When Hussein, Mubarak, Gaddafi and Assad were in control, both your worries were quite contained. Now I suppose you want the creators of the disaster to provide the solution, lol.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
