No, that's the second bravest man.  The bravest man is wearing an Israeli flag.

NO, no.  The dead man is wearing a Israeli flag with holes in it.

Egoy3k: To be fair that is how most of us should feel about Iranians. Culturally Iran should be one of the strongest allies that the west has in the region. It's pretty pathetic how in 2013 we are still dealing with fallout from the assassination of a minor member of European royalty that occurred in 1914.


Sorry, I don't know the history.  Is this because of the Ottoman Empire ending as a result of World War I?

PC LOAD LETTER: BunkyBrewman: The majority of Iranians actually like us Americans.

Our government?  Yeah... not so much.  Then again, they'll probably give our congress a higher approval rating than we do ourselves.

They would probably make better Congress members as well. Even with the Death To America bit.


No! That is Congress' job to kill America. Not some foreigners.

/American wife says I am not allowed to bring down America anymore.

Or they'd be upset at someone wearing a "Mexican flag."

Satanic panic in the attic: Lel, like voting in Iran is kind of ironic. The people do not even get to properly choose who gets to oppress them, even that is rigged.


Yeah, but the purpose isn't to elect who gets to lead them. It's to show the support of the regime.

They don't have this whole banana republic "the president got 147% of the votes", they fully declare that the regime chooses the candidates, and the purpose of the voting process is for the voters to validate the form of government.

They do however have sanctions if you don't vote, if you're employed by the government, or enrolled in university, then it can cost you your position to openly declare your discontent with the government through the act of not voting.

As far as I know it's the voters that actually do elect one of the 5 guys running for the seat, and AFAIK their selection does make an impact in what kind of direction Iran will be heading in international politics.


Same way the Soviet Union worked. Their elections weren't rigged either. Because they never pretended that it wasn't the central committee that elected their leaders (not after the death of Stalin anyway).

So Iran is a lot like the U.S. then.

Something I learned from "Reading Lolita in Tehran," is that they've always called it Iran. Iran is the Farsi word for Persia. It's as if we English-speakers started calling Germany "Deutschland."

It depends on his audience.  Back when we in college he would introduce himself as Persian when he wanted to avoid a fight with a meathead and Iranian when he wanted to start one.

BunkyBrewman: The majority of Iranians actually like us Americans.

Iran once had a revolution, very pro-western, very secular. Overthrew a dictator to install an American-style democracy.
We didn't like that, cheap oil deals with the former dictator and all. So we put him back. We didn't support Democracy in -OTHER- countries.
Pro-western leaders and intellectuals got massacred at that point.
Iran revolted again, only this time it was the religious fundies that did it, and for some reason this time they didn't like the U.S anymore.
Any remaining intellectuals or pro-western people still surviving now got killed all the way dead.
Congratulations, we now just created the first Muslim theocracy, and a hostile one.
So, now we arm their friendly neighbor, Iraq, with chemical and biological weapons to move in so the area is again under our control.
Millions of Iranians die and whole towns of civilians are wiped out.
For some strange reason now they like the U.S even less.

But they really only hate us because our freedumz.

My experience with them is that if they left because of the revolution and do not want to be associated with the current regime, they call themselves Persian.

Simplistic and largely wrong. In 1921, Reza Shah overthrew the corrupt dynasty and became the autocratic ruler. In 1941, mainly because of his pro-German sympathies, the allies forced him to abdicate in favor of his son, Reza Pahlavi, who became more of a constitutional monarch. In 1951, Mohammed Mossadegh was elected prime minister. He nationalized the oil industry, which led the Brits and U.S. to back a coup to oust him (with the approval of the Shah, who then became increasingly autocratic).

In 1979, a popular revolution against the Shah, largely begun and carried out by leftists and intellectuals, led to his overthrow. Opportunistic Muslim revolutionaries, who turned out to have WAY more votes than the secular, leftist students who began the whole thing, took over after national elections.

Iraq's chemical weapons were home-manufactured, and most of the precursor chemicals were bought from France and Germany.

No biggie. They don't really like anyone. And they've had a special grudge againt english types for about, oh, 700 years.

English speakers have been calling the wrong people Dutch since forever, except the few in Pennsylvania who got it right.  We should be calling Germans the Dutch, and their country Dutchland.

Similarly, we should use Netherlanders and Netherlands for who we currently call the Dutch.

(My SoCal dialect seems to not use the word "whom", so don't get on my case about that.)
