The majority of Iranians actually like us Americans.

To be fair, that's kind of our fault. There are a subset of idiots(militarists all) that blame France for our involvement in Vietnam. Like France was twisting our nuts and forcing us to support fundamentalist dictators that burn temples full of Buddhists alive.

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).

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.

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.

mbillips: CliChe Guevara: BunkyBrewman: The majority of Iranians actually like us Americans.

Our government?  Yeah... not so much.

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.

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.

Here, let me help you. We didn't sell them ANY chemical weapons, nor did we wittingly contribute to their chemical weapons program. We sold them "dual use" components, mostly computers.

You should smoke less dope, because your memory, she not so good. Iraq's bio weapon program was ALSO bought from German companies. The CDC supplied some germ strains, because the Iraqis claimed they needed them for medical research, and the World Health Organization policy is to share germ strains between medical researchers.

It doesn't have anything to do with religion.  It's a direct result of them wanting to kill me and everyone I know.  They can't behave in a civilized manner.  They blow up the very towns they live in on a daily basis.  To them, building a car bomb to see how many people you can kill is normal.  Having a preacher get up on the pulpit and tell them to go kill people is normal.

More than that, I think, but certainly nowhere close to 50% would know it.  However, pretending that since more Iranians would recognize the US flag than US citizens would recognize the Iranian flag doesn't mean "Americans aren't educated", it means that more people know the flag of the US (one of the biggest, richest, most successful countries, who give away money to damn near every other country) than know the flag of Iran, a desert shiathole full of terrorist nutbags.

In the US, you wearing another countries flag isn't likely to get you stoned by fundamental nutcases, or arrested by the government.  Doing it in Iran, while voting?  That carries a good deal more risk.  (If he really is - I'm not actually convinced).

JuggleGeek: WTFDYW: Not quite. Only the Christian fundamentalists do. Funny how so many people that call themselves Christians are so not Christ like. It's really sad.

I'm not religious.  I didn't give a crap about Muslims until shortly after 9/11.  Yes, now I hate them.  It's because they keep blowing up everything they can.  Fark 'em.

mbillips: CliChe Guevara: legion_of_doo: CliChe Guevara: mbillips: Iraq's chemical weapons were home-manufactured

um, who is claiming to be wrong here again? we shipped them quite a bit of good old u.s. made stuff, and helped with the tech to make it there. thats -very- well documented beyond any doubt due to the whole iraq/wmd thing.

Uh, wut? Lulz.

Europe shipped them good ol European made stuff. Sure, the US provided expertise as well, but the universe don't revolve around the US of A.

 Anyone who denies that we shipped Hussein large quantities of technology to make bio weapons, as well as unattenuated strains of pathogens (such as anthrax among others) and the equipment to reproduce it is simply being intentionally obtuse at this point. We gave them a shiatton of chemicals, bugs, knowledge, and equipment, and trained them how to use it, and its all been well documented.

 Go read the Senate hearings, or anything else for that matter. It happened, get over it.

You should smoke less dope, because your memory, she not so good. Iraq's bio weapon program was ALSO bought from German companies. The CDC supplied some germ strains, because the Iraqis claimed they needed them for medical research, and the World Health Organization policy is to share germ strains between medical researchers.


so let me get this straight; you are challenging the well-documented assertion that the u.s. helped them set up their weapons program by claiming they were "also" helped by other countries as well, so our help doesn't count? that makes no sense.
 also, weaponized strains of anthrax from our army labs were not sent to them at the behest of the WHO wanting us to share it.

/seriously, where do you get this shiat? not even breitbart is this far out of touch with basic reality

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




But, no But close. How about Nederlanders. The nether regions are what subby's mom likes to share with many of us.

I'm no fan of any mythological belief system, but you seem to be conflating nutjob fundies with the entire religion...

Probably looked more like this before the fotoshoppies got ahold of it.

FWIW: The "bird" is sort of a cultural thing and not really recognized as an obscene gesture amongst the Iranians although they would not hesitate to flip off a Westerner knowing how sacred that gesture is held amongst us.  Now had she given the prez a big thumbs up or raised the bottom of her shoe in defiance...

I understand the difference.  But you hear about muslims doing this every day.  You and I both know that in tomorrows newspaper, there will be articles about muslim terrorists blowing stuff up.  The only question is where they will do it, not if they will do it.

So it isn't just a few scattered nutjobs.  It's widespread.

The other day, in  a different fark thread, someone was trying to say "christians do the same thing", and the example given was bombing an abortion clinic.  Now really, when was the last time that happened?  I went looking, and I ended up finding this.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-abortion_violence#United_States

Wiki says anti-abortion violence has killed 8 people, the last one in 2009.  Compare that to muslim bombers, who blow stuff up every day, and you see the difference between "the entire religion" and "nutjob fundies".

..looks exactly the same age as the other one.

Seriously, you think typical 12 year olds have a rack like that? Have you ever even seen a woman before?

Wearing an American flag t-shirt might make sense if he's a muslim extremist, as he'd agree with a lot of the republican party platform.

Farking Muslims, bunch of freedom-hating terrorists...right?


So freaking true. My SO has been going back and forth to Qatar and Bahrain for the last year for work. We live in Missouri where some people are extremely xenophobic (and worse things). People warned him to be careful, "they" hate Americans, blah blah blah. DH says 99% of the people he has met are friendly and go out of their way to tell him how much they LIKE our president (specifically, our president). I'm not saying everyone in those countries is so much more modern thinking and perfect, but to assume they all absolutely hate Americans- hahaha! Yea, he is in pretty progressive countries (in my opinion), but still.

I had the odd fortune to have an Iranian roommate in college (in 1979, which wasn't the best time to be an Iranian in the US. He called himself a Persian, naturally, and he had to frequently make it clear that he was in the US because his family had run screaming from Iran. Accounting for cultural differences, he was still sort of an arrogant dick, but not nearly enough to warrant the abuse he received.

Also, it is my understanding is that Persian women are hot.

Looks like Rohani is winning!

He's the moderate for those not paying attention.  He wants "constructive interaction with the world".

Now the question is can he actually accomplish anything?
