Why would you be dead...? Just because the media stereotypes Islam you dont need to grow a brain you prejudice prick.
When will you understand Ahmadinejad is not a problem. He isnt the one who is killing millions of people and starting hatred... *cough* Bush, Blair, Sharon.*cough*
And he ain't the one in Illuminati.

Figure heads never get put into power if they really clash with the power behind the scenes.

Thawyze, you are aware the US supported Iraq in its war with Iran because of the Ebassy incident in which 400 US citizens were held hostage in Iran
Originally posted by ludaChristhe new Iranian regime did nothing to stop it at the time. We should have gone over there at that moment and kicked their asses. Their new govt was in a position to put an end to the incident and they didnt. They were an enemy of our country, and that justified supporting Iraq in their war against Iran. Guess youve never heard the term proxy-war.

I think you assertion that the current president can only take this position is undermined by the fact that the previous government of Khatami was radically different to this one and his views were completely contradictory to the rhetoric coming out of Ahmmdinejad. By your assertion it would mean that the Supreme Leader Khamenei, embraces the position of Khatami regarding "Dialogue among Civilizations" and embraces reform and the increase of personal and political freedom, otherwise Khatami would never had gotten to the position of being the president.
