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.

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.

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

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.


I think it's that whole Operation Ajax thing that bit us in the a$$ in Iran actually.

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


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".

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.

legion_of_doo: To pretend that the US of A is alone in making the world worse is also woefully stupid.

Your point is?


Simply that they have ample valid reason for hating us. We screwed with their country, we backed a coup so we could keep getting cheap oil, then encouraged and enabled the slaughter of literally hundreds of thousands of civilians in the most horrible ways possible when they rejected our puppet dictator.

The point is that they don't 'hate us for our freedoms', they hate and fear us for some pretty compelling and valid reasons.

You are correct however, we are not the ONLY power to have farked them over. Just the most prominent.

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).

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.
