    What's your point?

    The US election wasn't disputed. We simply recounted the votes to be sure that the correct and actual winner was named. Case closed.

    I don't recall seeing jackbooted thugs shooting innocent women and bashing in people's heads in Miami or Orlando as we saw in Tehran. Did you??
    What is my point? Precisely that: some say people in Iran are oppressed and their elections were rigged beyond what is considered usual for other "democratic" countries, and that Iran needs to be monitored by the likes of the US. Looney theory and the people that lap it up!

    And I do agree with you, it's not important who votes and how, what is important is who counts the vote and how. Frankly, I don't give a rat's backside about your elections, at the end of the day your country is ran by unelected clans and not by the senate or president.

    "jackbooted thugs shooting innocent women"?
    I don't recall it either. On the other hand I don't recall an all pervasive culture of vicious street gangs in Tehran as we see in America...

    Maybe your country could do with some monitoring for a change?

    I guess you never heard of Neda??



    Wait, let me guess. This was photo shopped by the evil USA to make the benevolent Iran look bad.

    As a matter of fact yes. Were you alive then?

    Did you know it happened 40 years ago.

    Uh, no, they're not. We have three branches that all have equal powers. Foreign policy negotiations don't fall under the Legislative Branch.

    I find it hillarious how Europeans want to constantly bash the United States, yet don't have a clue how our government works.

    So it is a no no to fund an organisation that is against the sitting Iranian government, but it is no problem to give billions to Israel..
    That's exactly right. Think about what you just said.

    The dude probably had it coming. Don't break the law and you don't get beat up. It ain't rocket science.

    Because other countries are also composed of human beings, and when a human being suffers elsewhere, we should ALL be concerned.
