subz, thanks for providing a textbook example of moral relativism!

One person or a small group violently overthrowing the duly elected leader of a free people bears no comparison to helping a nation free itself from a tyrannical overbearing theocratical dictatorship! :shk:

Umm no. Making the slightest threat towards the president will get you investigated, which is better than say, in Iraq a couple of years ago. What would that stamp have gotten the artist in Bagdad?


as long as it still portrayed bush, the guy'd probably get a medal

tyrannical overbearing theocratical dictatorship!


Based on what? That religon is involved in the political process of Iran? And the seperation of Church and State is King in American politics?

Tyrannical?


tyranny

n 1: a form of government in which the ruler is an absolute dictator (not restricted by a constitution or laws or opposition etc.)



From the CIA World Fact Book
Legal System: the Constitution codifies Islamic principles of government

chief of state: Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Hoseini-KHAMENEI (since 4 June 1989)
head of government: President (Ali) Mohammad KHATAMI-Ardakani (since 3 August 1997); First Vice President Dr. Mohammad Reza AREF-Yazdi (since 26 August 2001)
cabinet: Council of Ministers selected by the president with legislative approval

Hardly tyrannical when you have a constitution, a chief of state, a president, a vice president and a cabinet.

There are elections in Iran as well which cannot be any more corrupt that the last American ones.

The fact is, I'd rather live in Iran that in the United States. Thats my personal opinion as I have many Iranian friends.

The United States has painted the Iranian Republic as a boogey man since their puppet Shah was overthrown by the will of the Iranian public. When American influence was confronted they didnt like it and tried even further to meddle in that oil rich countries affairs.

Shall we look at the American goverment under a microscope? Oh yeah they dont allow it for "national security reasons". Hypocrites IMHO
