Good perspective. Don´t worry my will is in order for anyone worried that some errant missile might take me out while sleeping.

- I apologize for my fellow Americans. 95% don't have passports, and the major news outlets all report the same processed news with spin on it. They win the sperm lottery and were lucky to be born in a country that is wealthy.Mar 8, 2012
- - It's a while I've not been to Iran, but last news comes to me, from friends and family, says that things are getting worse there in Iran. Before Obama, Iranian ppl were always being threatened by gwb, now they are threatened by obama plus they get very tight sanction, which affects financial situation in Iran and rises prices. Overal it's worse than before, thx to mr. president and aipac!Mar 8, 2012

- I'd like to share this video to give some people a little more info about the background of US intervention in the middle east.
History of U.S. Intervention in Iran - 1953 Until Present
The only reason we think Iran is full of terrorists is because our government and media tell us so. The only reason we think Isreal is wonderful and needs our help so much is because our government and media tell us so.
If you want the real news, watch the international media outlets, and stay the hell away from the American ones.
When the Iranian people say "Down with America" they mean our government, not the civilians of America, and, if we put ourselves in their shoes, we should be able to understand their position ever so clearly, if we know the history.
Even if we dont put ourselves in their shoes, the majority of the US citizens today are also saying "Down with the US government "
And many of us are tired of the war mongering BS happening. (By the way, there is only one presidential candidate who doesn't want to blow Iran off the map, and it isn't Obama)
Iran hasn't started a war with anyone in 200 years, they don't have nuclear weapons, and even if they did, why are other countries allowed to and they aren't? (Hint: it has nothing to do with terrorism and everything to do with people able to control people (and their resources) easier if you can keep them weak)
As far as the comments made about WWII and the potential of WWIII: A) the US is just about the only nation quickly driving us toward WWIII B) the US didn't step in to "help" everyone and stop mass genocide (keep in mind, there was denial of the death camps until even after the war, so we did not even know there was as much genocide happening until adding it all up afterward ), and were content to do nothing until we were attacked and dragged into it. We weren't out to be heroic and save and police the world, we were retaliating against an attack made on us.
(also: Read up on Eugenics, specifically in the US, the mass genocide in WWII was based on an idea and system that was in place in the US before Hitler began using it. *Hilter's system was based on ours )
We may have been the strongest nation in the world for a very long time, but it's not because of how nice we are and how much we help everyone and protect everyone, and nearly everyone in the world knows (and hates) that. The US has been acting like the big schoolyard bully for a very very long time.Mar 10, 2012
- is the voice of reason. My defacto was raised in California, and she was under many of the same delusions and believed much of the propaganda driven bullshit that nearly every US media outlet spews forth into the US psyche. Let me also say she isn't stupid, she isn't a Christian, has a college degree and had traveled to countries outside the continental US before we had met. If anything, the inability of these supposed advantages (degree, travel) to lift the veil of ignorance she wore is a testament to the sheer power of the US propaganda machine. Since moving to Australia she has a different perspective on nearly every conflict or issue the US is or has been involved in, simply because she was taken away from the brainwashing media soup that exists over there and has been exposed to international media like BBC and Reuters.Mar 20, 2012
