Pictures from Iran

These pictures might give a better idea about the Country and the people.
Iran looks good, on the surface anyway.

Interesting -- thanx Mr. Teutone. I noticed a few BANNED users there. What, are these folks gettin' hot and heavy over skyscrapers?

We can start a poll on how long it will take for that place to turn into a terrorist den once we invade it.
Al Qaeda can hardly wait for us to to get in; they want some action.
on a side note:
Do you think all of those people depicted in the pictures want to kill us?

Hey Teutone, links like that are dangerous because they put a human face on the Iranians but we know all too well that they are not according to our political and religious leaders.

Popular support for the Kleptocrat Mullahs is supposed to be in the 15% range.
The real power in Iran, the council of guardians, i.e. the Mullahs were smarter than Bush in Iraq.
The Shahs Savak was left intact, except for a few guys on top who were excecuted. Combined with the integration of the Komiteh's pasdars into the military, and the foundation of a religious / moral police, any dissent is dealt with swiftly.
People disappear without a trace, or into the many prisons and torture chambers of Irans Islamic Republic.
There are now 3 times per capita of Iranian regime critics in jail, than under the Shah.

BTW, Worldisround - a global community for sharing photos and exploring the world is another interesting site.

What? No pictures of kids flying kites?

The leaders of Iran think that YOU are SATAN and if you don't convert to Islam you need to have your throat cut.

A nuclear weapon killing you is simply an affirmation of their faith.

There were lots of pretty Nazi women, too.

Ouote: "I feel much better ever since I gave up hope."

I sympathize.

Hope never fed a child or stopped a despot.

We want the same results. It is just how we all get there that is in question.

I honestly see regimes in Iran and North Korea (and other parts of the world) as threating all of our chances and assign far more responsibility for this threat to them than to the US.

I'm too terrified to walk out of my own front door,
They're demonstrating outside I think they're gonna start the third world war,
I've been to my local head shrinker,
To help classify my disease,
He said it's one of the cases of acute schizophrenia he sees.

Well the milkman's a spy, and the grocer keeps on following me,
And the woman next door's an undercover for the K.G.B.,
And the man from the Social Security
Keeps on invading my privacy,
Oh there ain't no cure for acute schizophrenia disease.

I've got acute schizophrenia, paranoia too,
Schizophrenia, schizophrenia,
I've got it, you've got it, we can't lose,
Acute schizophrenia blues.

I'm lost on the river, the river of no return,
I can't make decisions, I don't know which way I'm gonna turn,
Even my old dad, lost some of the best friends he ever had,
Apparently, his was a case of acute schizophrenia too.

I got acute schizophrenia, paranoia too,
Schizophrenia, schizophrenia,
I've got it, you've got it, we can't lose,

They're watching my house and they're tapping my telephone,
I don't trust nobody, but I'm much too scared to be on my own
And the income tax collector's got his beady eye on me,
No there ain't no cure for acute schizophrenia disease.

No there ain't no cure for
Schizophrenia disease.
