Default Re: Iran's enemies to blame for unrest, says supreme leader, as nine die overnight

it is always funny to hear USA and trump demonize others when our country has plenty of problems of its own. An out of control and undisciplined police force who literally sends execution squads out over prank calls, the most inefficient and corrupt government on the planet, and a world military that brutalizes people all over, thats covered up for because they own the media and can just say how they deserved it. These idiots are more concerend with hating on others than acknowledging and fixing our problems.

Amazing how every time it's always the same formula. It's like they have a PowerPoint briefing and just change the names of the country when they need to. How did it work out in Libya? Syria? Why are people still being fooled by this propaganda?

Why can't we do both at the same time?

Can you bitch about your neighbors yard if your window is broken? I would think so.

Under your premise, no country should ever critique another. Ever.

This is such a ridiculously fraudulent comment. You really have to insinuate they knew the reported murder/hostage call was a prank, to make whatever point you feel compelled to make?

Pathetic bro.

im not sayin you..im saying the government..its just tiresome the smear campaigns they are always going on and never fixing all the broken shit in this country. Trump was just saying a few weeks ago how we wsted 7 trillion dollars in the middle east, yet here he is on his twitter machine playing divide and conquer in the middle east. Hes just flagrantly out of control with no direction.

The warmongers and regime change advocates in Washington are getting boners right now. Iran has been a target for them for years.

Next step is "government snipers" killing protestors:



If they do this again it will be just too obvious (not that it wasn't before).

I think at this point it should be obvious that it's not simply Trump, nor was it Obama--the problem is systemic (Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump all ran on platforms of an isolationist tendency, all got involved in multiple wars). US foreign policy is simply controlled by a cabal of criminal psychopaths, and the American media either buys the propaganda they are fed by them, or are complicit. As I said, it's pretty damn rich for Americans to talk about the Iranian government being evil, oppressive, a threat, etc. when they have not waged aggressive war in the past two centuries (and America has waged about a half-a-dozen just in the 21st).

Of the countries in the Middle East with solid reasons to hate Americaís guts, the Iranians are probably tops on that list.

The Iran that exists right now is 100% our ancestorsí faults.

Most of these counties share similar social norms and belief systems, which also exposed similar social cracks. Its always easier to go for the vulnerable spots when attacking your enemies.

The exact kinds of things happening in Iran were happening in the colonies 250 years ago. Itís EXACTLY why the inaugural government of the newly independent USA put provisions for gun ownership in the Const. Itís so people can fight back when the government infringes on their rights, as it INEVITABLY will do, as the entire spectrum of human history hs proven.


fiddy, go back to bed bruh.

Do you have any clue how different your OWN "country" is different from 100 years ago? jfc dude, learn some history.

When Mexican insurgents take ahold of San Antonio, San Diego and other cities, and declare independence, while killing a bunch of your military (and with Canada invading from the North, but being a serious rival rather than a joke), tell me that your government is the "aggressor" for reclaiming that territory through force.

The Iran-Iraq war broke out around this time (where you heavily armed Saddam and sent him against the Iranians), so the whole thing is much more complex than you are making out, but it's pretty obvious you're just repeating the drivel you were fed by some neocon piece of shit.

And btw, a major Kurdish group atm is labelled a terrorist organisation by your own government (largely to appease Turkey, because they are affiliated with the PKK), despite you also arming it and its allies (who are basically no different). So you are using socialist terrorist separatists as an example now, while ignoring that the Kurd insurgency and suppression in Turkey is far more violent and bloody than anything currently happening in Iran.

And now you wonder why they don't like you (because they "hate freedom" i suppose )

This is about as much of an organic uprising as were the "freedom fighters" in Syria. If you think it is a coincidence that now that crackpot scheme has failed this is happening in Iran, then you are braindead.
