I suppose he would be if he knew that Iran was the name of a country. He probably thinks it is a new Apple product.

The Iranian people are not unique in this regard.

He could have been more accurate and called trumpee an enemy of the American people. That tweet will come back and hurt trumpee when American's go out and protest because we're sick of our money being embezzled and funneled to the wealthy.

Iran's leadership is also an enemy of the Iranian people.

The trumpanzees will be hooting and shrieking and leaping from one side of the cage to the other when they hear about this.

The Iranian government is starting to resemble our own. "Oh crap the people are getting restless, better start talking about the foreign devil."

Iranian President's assessment of Trump is incomplete.  He failed to mention fat, ugly, and stupid.
 
2018-01-01 08:32:07 AM  
If liberals really believed in the things they claimed to believe then they wouldn't be nodding in dumb agreement with the Iranian government. I also notice that this time around they're strangely silent on the protests in Iran, they were all for them the last time around, I can only Hope to figure out what Changed.

Well I like the fact that more women are actually elected in their representative government than in the US and wish we could get rid of the good old boys club in the Senate. But I don't like that they make religious beliefs part of their government and I don't want rabbis, priests, nor imams dictating social laws in the United States either! Happy now?!

Here is the thing about Iran - shiat done got farked up in the 70s and we are trying to emulate that here. Liberals don't want it, but don't let that stop you from the wankfest.

Iranians really do not get it. They go with "top of his head" and don't turn it into, "from the top of...whatever that thing is on the top of his head, through the ominously bulging middle, past the hilariously overcompensating length of tie, down to his tiny, tiny feet."

Kim Dog June should let them crib from his notes.

Obama paid bribes to Iran and Hezballah.
 
2018-01-01 08:58:51 AM  
I do agree with Trump.  I think many Iranians are expressing their dissatisfaction with the Iranian economy while Iran spends tons of money supporting cause outside of Iran.  All the world over, politics is local.  These demonstrations may also open fissures in Iranian society.  Iran seeks influence in the Arab world yet Iran is not an Arab country.  Iran is mostly Persian.  There is an Arab minority in the south which the government often cracks down on.  There are also significant Kurdish and Azeri minorities and religious groups other than Shia Moslems.
 
2018-01-01 09:00:17 AM  
What Trump and his allies must refrain from doing is overplaying their hand.  Showing too strong of support for the demonstrators may make them look like US and Western agents and thus turn support against them.

Bullshait moran here! We gave them their own money back that we froze in the US. We only did this once they dropped their nuclear weapons program and agreed to inspections of their facilities. If they were shown to be hiding something, the deal's off and we continue sanctions.

The Republicans and Israel weren't happy with that deal because they want the option to have an excuse to start war in Iran to distract from their own internal mischief (Bibi is being investigated for corruption and I am sure Trump would love to use a war with Iran as an excuse to get rid of the Muller investigation). But tell us again how you have no proof to backup your bullshait!

Trump, Kim Jong-Un, and Ali Khamenei all need each other.  All the saber rattling is a great way to distract their respective citizens from how crappy their leaders are.  Meanwhile Putin and Xi are growing their global influence, while the EU tries to hold the West together without us.

Does the top of Trump's head include his "hair" or do they mean the scarred scalp from the botched transplant job?

I like specifics.

Let us not forget that we played a major part in turning Iran into a radical anti-Western theocracy.

Iran used to be fairly secular, but the CIA overthrew their democracy and put an unpopular dictator in charge.  The only force capable of resisting him was the clerics, so they organized the people and eventually tossed him out, and the US along with him.  Then we started a proxy war with Iran via Iraq that killed about a million people in retaliation.  Oh yeah, and shot down one of their civilian jetliners for no reason, killing several hundred people.

If we want Iran to move forward, we need to stay the fark away.  Any attempt we make to support the protesters in Iran will legitimize the clerics.  See, they'll say, it's not a popular uprising, it is just the US farking with us again because they hate Iran.  And they'll use Trump's own words to support that view.

You don't have anything better to do than fluff Trump in every single thread. Thing is though Trump has enough fluffers on staff, he doesn't need you.

There's no hand to play that helps the people of Iran. None. Anything that paints this as in any way influenced by Western culture hurts them. Now Trump does rile up his base who like to see some Braggadocio Tin Pot Hot Head talking tough, they somehow think that's "leadership". And he'll press that because it's all he's got. But it won't help him with many in the US, and will hurt things over-all. In one small way, this hurts Trump as it deflects from his attempts to turn North Korea into a panic justifying war. He and his people aren't good with things that distract them, they prefer to be doing the distracting.

Actually there were other factions besides the clerics that helped overthrow the Shah. The clerics just came out on top in the aftermath.

You're so improbably stupid that I have to assume you are a paid shill. Who is paying you I do not know, but money has to be slipping into your pocket.

Want to know a secret? I'm a liberal and I despise Iran's government.
