No surprise here. Iran is America's top natural ally in the region. On the other side of the coin is Saudi Arabia, where we are universally loathed by all but the oppressive Saudi leadership. The blowback concept suggests a reversal of fortune is coming sooner or later...

Thank you for the interesting survey Teutone. You seem to have a bit more knowledge about Iran, having lived and worked there.

What the survey didn't mention was that the majority of the population is pretty young, I think under 30. They still have enough exposure to Western movies, music and culture to want freedom to enjoy that.

I think there is a lot of fear and ignorance about Iran coming from the White House. It's a complex society over there, and while they are proud and nationalistic, (don't ever call them Arabs, they are Persians!) they aren't basically interested in going to war with us or destroying Israel.

Those are my ideas about them anyway. I do deplore their leader and the radical mullahs and the revolutionary Guard with their hands on all the Political Power, they won't give it up and therein lies the problem. Those in power pose a REAL threat to the Western powers, and can't be trusted.

But if the United States should invade them, it will instantly galvanize and unite them, for certain.
