    Some of the secular politicians you vote for could be considered insane.

    I suspect that there are alot of people who don't understand what an actual theocracy is, and they believe that if you have a Christian leader, or Christian population that it is a Christian theocracy. Unfortunately, this also means that they don't understand that in countries where Sharia law is instituted in both criminal and civil matters, that there is no government besides the religion itself.

    And so could many of the heavily Christian politicians. What's your point?

    Obviously, someone doesn't know jack **** about Iran or the arab middle eastern countries. Quit trying to give them motivations and ways of thinking that they don't have.

    This is so irrelevant. You cannot compare our form of government with the government that exists in Iran, even if our politicians were Christian, Muslim, Buddhists, Jewish, or whatever.

    These liberals think it's fine and dandy if we support brutal dictatorships in the middle east.

    We have a legal system which is separate from religion, which serves to insure that any politician, no matter his level of sanity, is limited as to what he can legally do.

    Well since you have been born the US has been responsible for more innocent deaths in the middle east than has Iran. I guess crazy is in the eye of the beholder.

    Does any member, ANYONE, find this even remotely reasonable? How can one argue against that position? It is hedged in more ignorance than I can imagine dispelling.


    Seriously. Everyone should have them? That's your argument supporting the Iranian nuclear weapon program?!

    I'm sure that is Iran's feeling as well.
