The revolutionary guard and religious police should be liquidated.



Remember the battle of nahavand and holocaust that befell the pagans of asia. Persia has been going backwards every since.


Who in their right mind jail hot persian women from dancing on instagram?!
The destruction of the country will do nothing good. Iran is the most positive force in the middle east even with the Ayatollahs.

Also I'm polytheistic so I have no problem with any of that.

Tehran looks like such a beautiful city. I would love to see it. From what I have seen online, it's a safe and interesting place to visit, even for Americans. It's just too bad that governments can't seem to get along.

You have to respect their culture as far as women etc, but it seems like they are becoming less conservative lately and Iranian women dress quite attractively even though they have to be mostly covered up.

Serious question. Why does America have such an issue with Iran having nuclear weapons? Is the country seriously a threat to use them unless preemptively attacked?

The West should be surrounding Saudi Arabia, primary source of Wahhabism terror. Iran took over an embassy in 1979, whoopty doo.

The (great) Houthis are nearly defeated, sanctions are crippling the economy, and allies are no where to be found.

I am saddened by these events, I hope Iran can survive all the hatred the Turks, Arabs, Jews, and Americans spew on them, the Persian Empire was the pinnacle of human civilization.

God bless Iran.


What your plan for returning the Persian Jewish communities to Iran - who had lived there for over a thousand years. Who were ethnically cleansed, murdered, robbed of their properties and belongings, spat upon, and forced to flee in 1979 by the ludicrous theocratic revolution?

Iran, like Saudi, spends millions of dollars in proxy funding terrorism, insurgent groups and, effectively, local wars. Yes if you put a gun to my head and said ok you've got to choose between having Sunni (or worse, Wahhabist) countries only or Shia countries only - then yes I'd opt for the far more reasonable Shias. But its entirely disingenuous and deceitful to state Iran is some peace lover.

No not really, it is stable, its security is well-controlled, its actions are usually measured. However, it is quite happy to fund and supply chaos and murder outside of its land boundaries, and giving fissile material (or more likely, simply the material for a dirty bomb) to one of its proxy groups (even if it was a renegade unit that did that) is entirely feasible.

Makes sense. Didn't really think about that. Would be the same deal with N Korea I suppose.

They wouldnít sell a nuke to anyone.

Btw, the US arms more terrorists than any country in the world, Iran has legitimate political parties they support in their neighborhood while Americans reach across from the other side of the world to terrorize Iran.
