Ahmadinejad is just a puppet, a very well trained puppet.

The real power is the Ayatollah's and the Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The puppet dances to the puppet masters tune. Its a Theocratic Dictatorship with the appearance of the elections meaning anything.

The ruling powers that be have a totalitarian death grip on the country and they dont care how many of their own they kill to stay in power. In this kind of climate which IMHO is similar to Myanmar or Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge nothing will ever change as long as power is used brutally and without restraint to crush any signs of resistance or disobedience. Think Tienanmen Square which China crushed ruthlessly and efficiently.

No country on this planet will be willing to try a regime change on a nuclear armed country. Once Iran get the nuke their political future is unchangeable unless attitudes inside change. Or they use a nuke on someone outside Iran.

You're right. We prefer to take it up the ass and throw faggoty tea parties that yield no results or change.

No. I typically skip the opening post of each thread because that way I remain uninformed on the subject and render myself pointless and ineffective in a debate.

So I ask again, 'what shit?'

NiteStryker;4918521Ah the religion of peace!

I don't understand, do these riots have something to do with religion as well?

Sadly, though you're right: we don't do this shit. No matter how corrupt our various governments (Federal, State, Local, etc.) get most of us seem to roll over and take it.

Anyways, this is a very interesting time for Iran. I think most of the people are aware that the president is virtually powerless, but maybe this could be a step in the right direction for some change in their country.

I would hope so, and I am truly surpised, I am shocked to see that there are poeple in that country that really do care about whats going on.... I guess Iran was covering them from the media, but no longer! I just hope Iran doesn't pull out the tanks and fireing squads on them.... :(

Huh?

You talking about those stupid bastards who did that whateverthefucktheydid recently with tea for some wierd reason?

I think thats alot better in terms of injuries and deaths compared to the Iran situation. We sit and bitch and get on with life, we dont start burning down the country.

Iran should have another revolution.

It sucks for those pro reform people but I'm unable to tell how high the support for either side is. It's not an insiginificant force that wants reform so those who actually are in power (the religious leaders behind the president) may wish to adapt a little bit so that a large majority of the people stays happy. It's a shame tha Iran isn't a real democracy, having said I believe the country will change over time (well that's pretty much a given, the question is whether it will take 4, 6, 10, 20, 50 or more years). And if the majority truely doesn't support a pro reform leadership then we have to respect that. What we can't respect ofcourse would be a declaration of war but I don't see that happening either...
