I've been to most of these places, and they are astonishing, the people, the trade, the goods you can by from the bazaar, the ancient history, the food, the mountains, it's insane.

North of Tehran you'll get some of the best ski resorts in the world while in the south you'll get the ancient ruins of Persepolis and in the north west you'll see stunning cities like Tabriz.

Go and visit now, it will be your best vacation in a life time, take your love ones, traveling is easy. Sure I have an Iranian passport but getting a visa there is a fly.

There has always been a slice of Iran that is very pro American. Had several tell me about the good ole days, when there were many Americans living/working in Iran. Most don't realize the difference in Arab and Persian.

Yes, during the US-imposed brutal puppet dictatorship of the Shah, there were Americans happily living there. But then, every country has its pro-American slice, ready to sell out to American interests for a commission.

That slice is still pretty big in Iran. Whenever they see western (especially American) foreigners in the country everyone sucks up to them in hopes of impressing them and showing Iran is a great country.

Today there are obviously less Americans, but there are some Europeans, and in generally Iranians, even the conservative ones, shouldnít be confrontational with Americans.

1. The Savak

2. That doesnít make it any better for the US to have supported him. When the revolution happened, everyone wanted him gone because he tortured people and spent all of Iranís money on himself.

He was horrible.

Yes, but in Iran, that slice is very small. Most Iranians are selling out to other nations, like Russia and China, for their commissions.

Iím sorry but thatís not true. Iranians desperately suck up to Americans.

Pro-shah oligarchs who now live in the US constantly call on the US to invade Iran and the corporate media uses that as proof American terrorism is benevolent.

In truth most Iranians actually living in Iran donít want to be invaded but still suck up to Americans because they donít know Americans want to sanction them till they starve.

Basic medical equipment is being deprived to Iranian as we speak. Does that make you happy?

America leaders need to answer for these crimes, but in the meantime come and visit, see the beautiful country before itís destroyed.
