Say what you want about the US being in Iraq, Bush, etc - but the US doesn't pay people to walk into crowded civilian areas and explode.

I've got nothing against the Iranian people, just the Revolutionary Guard and their government. They obviously want some human rights and some freedoms - but anyone that opens their mouth gets put in prison and either mysteriously dies in prison or 'commits suicide'. But as much as they want freedom - if their government provokes the US into a war, first step is obliterating everything that could be used to make weapons, which would include Mercedes plants.

And personally, I don't like the idea of Mercedes providing a boost to the economy of a country that pays for terrorism - I'm just glad my car wasn't built there.

Actually, this sounds more like the excuse for terrorism, rather than the definition of it.

Hey lynns, you might wanna keep an eye on this thread because we're touching on some very sensetive material here.
This subject is all to inviting for people's opinions on a subject which does not belong in this forum.

If it continues, we might end up with a situation that is not needed, nor can be solved amongst MB enthusiasts.

Check this out, both BMW and Mercedes even build vehicles in the southern USA, insane.

Peugoet was building cars in Iran back in t 70's.

Global car companies, damn them to hell.

Thank god Ford doesn't try that crap.
I lived in Iran for close to ten years until 84, when (not Peugeot) Renault had a factory there.
My friends Thierry & Xavier Brino Dad used to run the place.
Peugeot now produces the Pars through the Iran Khodro group, which used to make a Buick and Cadillac Seville until 1981 or so.
Jeep had a plant for Wagoners mostly, and a Buick and Cadillac Seville were made on the same platform there.
The largest Iranian Car producer is Peykan, which was the a car made in cooperation with, and based on a version of the British Hillman Hunter.
Cheers
