Maybe these people need to learn the truth of the Iranian struggle for freedom before American liberals teach them otherwise:

I believe they have more freedom under Ahmadinejad there than the Palestinians have under you.

"I am an American and here's what I know. I was told - No - I WAS PROMISED by Jewish Neocons that the Iraqis wanted freedom and couldn't wait for us to invade. Now I find their idea of freedom is actually for us to leave so they can kill each other. And its only cost me $ 750 billion and $ 60 a barrell oil to find that out.

And now I'm being told by a Jewish idiot that Iran can be taken out "in a single night". And you're telling me they want to be bombed and invaded to gain freedom.

If you believe it - Do it. Take Iran out "in a single night".

Who is stopping you? Certainly not the UN. You've never let them stop you from doing anything. We gave you the bombs. You're proven killers. You certainly don't need us. According to you, they will welcome you. So go ahead. We'll watch and see what happens."

The Shia at the above forum seem to have absolutely no clue that Iranians want freedom and there are so-called Americans who wish to keep them blind to the truth.

All these articles you posted are important reads. But that article about Professor Crocodile [perfect name I might add] says it all. These ate ups are going to take Iran into hell, and they don't care one bit. The leadership in Iran is nuts.

Counting the days for Ganji's freedom.

"Islamic rule is not in the majority vote of the people; in general people are too stupid."

Ahmadinejad's election proved that.
