According to American media, every new leader is the most hardline evar.

I prefer a firm liner.  I used to have a soft liner, but my back started to hurt.

I can't think of the last president in living memory who didn't take a hard line stance against Iran.

It's not that I think there's any virtue in electing religious extremists into the top positions of power. I just don't think we have room to talk shiat about those other countries much anymore.

Stupid trash did a great jerb by pulling the US out of the Iran nukes treaty. If they were so sure that Iran was gonna cheat, then it was a matter of catching them in the act and getting all the parties to sanction them to plunge the whole country into an economic tail spin. All the republican morons accomplished is that Iran could resume it's nukes programm and none of the parties to the treaty felt any pressure to engage sanctions because dumbass Americans invalidated the treaty.

When will we apologize for supporting the coup that toppled the democratically elected government?

If Iran is broken because of the US then I guess it's the responsibility of the US to fix it.

Lets be real, if you're Iran, you have very little reason to take anything but a hard line against the West. Occupied by the Brits, Ottomans, and Russians in WW1, mucked with by the Brits after WW1, invaded by the Brits and Soviets in WW2, economically blockaded by the brits in the early 50s, then the US overthrew a democratically elected Prime Minister and basically set up the Shah as a police state dictator, that dude gets overthrown in '79 and Iran's been a pariah ever since.

After the US just decided to scupper the nuclrar deal for giggles, it's hard to see where cooperation gets them much at this point.

Now, there's all sorts of things the Iranian government can be accused of, its an authoritarian antidemocratic medevial murderous theocracy. But its one that can basically point to all of its actions and tell enough of its population "hey its not us thats the baddies, look at those other guys!" to keep power.
