wow I expected a little bit more objectivity from an informed poster such as yourself..
I appreciate the complement?
You "didn't know Iran had a dictator"? Really? Why do you think this, because of the elections? Do you know that Sadam also had elections?
Do you also know that the elections was not meant to choose the supreme leader who makes the final decisions?
Now, tell me, why do you think that Iran has a dictator, because the MSM tells you so? Did they not tell you also that Iraq had WMD or even ties to Al
Furthermore, just because Iraq had elections, does this mean that we too have a dictator, seeing how in America we also have elections? I think it's
more than safe to say that Iraq isn't Iran, nor do they even resemble Iraq. In fact, two completely different races, languages and systems of
Well news flash...IRAN HAS A DICTATOR who will be in power till he dies(or through a revolution) and Iran has the highest execution rate next
to China with less then 10% of the population. And I'm not an American or Israeli supporter btw.
Speaking of execution rates, one simply needs to look at America. No, forget executions, just look at incarcerations, as the US has more imprisoned
people than almost the whole world combined. Does this mean we have a dictator too?
No matter how much you may not agree with the democratically elected government of Iran, it doesn't mean that it isn't the will of the people. In
fact, the Iranian people have proven that they will easily overthrow any dictator who wished to impose their will. The reason that it took so long
with the Shah, is because he was backed by both Americans weapons and American support. They finally overcame that by cutting off the head and taking
over the Embassy.
What proof do you have that Iran is under a dictatorship? Because the MSM jumped all over the protests after the last election? Well, I'd hate to be
the one to break it to you but those protests were much, much smaller than the protests after the election of GWB. That media coverage was purely
propagandic in nature and designed to sway popular opinion against the nation, seeing how it has a huge red, white and blue (emphasis on the last two)
bullseye painted across the country. Furthermore, many argue, and convincingly so, that the whole uproar was CIA/Mossad funded and instigated. In
fact, according to Iranian officials, this is why they were arresting and interrogating the activists.
Finally, just because the US and Israeli media spin propaganda about Iran and their supposed dictatorship, it doesn't mean that it is one. Most of
the Iranian people seem to be perfectly happy with their choice. There is no valid evidence that the elections are rigged or that people are pressured
to vote one way or the other. Also, while Iraq had elections, they had no opposition (sort of like the US), so the people could only vote for Saddam.
Iran on the other hand does have plenty of opposition and the people seem free to vote for whoever they like. All in all, there is much more evidence
of election fraud in the US. Does this give us a dictator too?
As far as this guy getting broken ribs and sitting in a hole somewhere, that's usually what happens in prison, as it isn't a fun place. I'm not
condoning the behavior, if it is indeed true, but there are plenty of worse places to go to prison, where you won't come out on the other side in as
good shape. To me, being an American, it would seem that this guy had a very easy stay, though of course the media and anti-Iran bandwagon would never
hint at that fact. Instead, they will condemn Iran and demonize the country, while completely ignoring our own much, much worse treatment of our own
prisoners, political or not. In fact, you are much more likely to go to prison here in the States than anywhere else in the world, even if you hadn't
hurt anyone or their property and while you are in jail, you will be assaulted and extremely lucky if all you get is a broken bone or two. However,
just ignore that fact, as Iran has a dictator, nuclear weapons program and they are planning on taking of the world, right?
