    Sure but do we show a similar level of concern when our allies are doing similar things to what the Iranian government is doing. I assume you remember general pinochet, galtieri, suharto etc better than i do. Were you equally concerned at the time as you are now?

    From 6 -- 7 policemen that suppose to uphold the law?

    I'm not saying he was an innocent pet, but if you take a stance of a monitor of the legality of actions of other nations, shouldn't you be squeaky clean yourselves first?

    Be concerned, by all means... Make a donation, go there and build a school, or a hospital...

    But there is a world of difference between your private concern and sponsored by the US government monitoring of other nation's home affairs.

    PBO ?
    We are beating a dead horse to death.

    If the whole world by now does no know that the criminally insane Islamics are evil personified, they will never know.
    The Iranian people must rebel, if they truly want better government. I do not think they do.
    This is a "give me liberty or give me death" situation, as I see it. Things are not that bad in Iran...I think they were worse in Iraq

    Yeah, we can build hospitals, schools, and the criminally insane Islamics will blow them up.

    So is that to say that Russian citizens should have made donations to South Ossetians rather than supporting their governments military intervention?

When it's disputed ellection in the US or a country firmly under the US control, -- its nothing, hiccups of democracy at the most.

    lmfao Democrats protesting the 2000 elections weren't murdered in the ****ing street and rounded up and thrown in jail. Epic fail.

    Then don't build. Be quietly concerned.

    Well the elections in Iran didn't really matter in the first place because there is a closed circle of power in which the Supreme Leader rules, well Supreme. Iran is not a democracy it is a theocratic dictatorship.

    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.
    Um no we have what is known as a pluralist society, in a pluralist society there are what are known as special interests many of which in competition with one another which give citizens a direct ear to the government.

    "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?
    Sorry sport we all saw the shootings on youtube. We all know that protesters from the Iranian elections are still missing, either dead or imprisoned.
