Maybe your proctologist is shoving red herrings up your rectum because you keep pulling them out and throwing them into the discussion.

We are supposed to be the bad guys because we don't trade with Iran? What are they goiing to buy other than F-14 parts?

They have nothing much to export except oil and have no problem selling it to China.

What about civil liberties under the Shah vs civil liberties under the present regime? Same? Different? Better? Worse?

Not to mention that Iran has for years been supplying IEDs (land mines) for use against US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

For anyone to support the Iranian regime just because they support Jimmy Carter or his party is pretty sick imo.

This latest from the Iranian intelligence agency:

Iranian Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi claims that Osama Bin Laden died from an illness before the US raid on his compound in Abbottabad. Iran has documents to prove it, he said.

"We have credible information that Bin Laden died some time ago of a disease," Moslehi said on the sidelines of a cabinet meeting on Sunday, as quoted by ISNA news agency.
Now, wonder who authorized that bit of intel speak?
