Nice eyeopening photo's
those pics certainly didn't look "evil" to me, maybe I will look at Iran differently from now on, I honestly didn't realize how beautiful of a country it was. Thanks

As is typical in most nations and countries, it's Not the peoples, it's the damned governments that foment the issues, hype and media mentions we encounter from day to day.
Otherwise, we're all just folks trying to get by, make a living, enjoy life to it's fullest.

Try looking at Nazi Germany pictures. It might look like a great place too.
The Iranian government is very evil. I could give many examples, but I'll just mention persecution of minorities (Bahai leaders are executed, coverts to Christianity are tortured & sometimes killed, and even the native Zoroastrians have been persecuted.)
Sure, it's a beautiful & well-developing country, but if you're not a Shiite Muslim who follows all the insane laws and support Khomaini & Ahmadinejad, you will be persecuted. . . similar to Nazi Germany.
Iraq was wealthy & safe/stable up until the Ba'ath (Saddam's party) came into power. At least they were secular. Iran's government now is NOT secular, which means it is potentially more dangerous (to their own people) than Saddam's Iraq.
I'm not saying Iran should be bombed to hell. I say they need a new, more secular government, with more freedoms. That's what the people want. That's why there were protests & riots. Iran's government should be more like Turkey's, because the people are secular. Instead the government is more like Saudi Arabia, with strict religious Islamic law.
