This morning at the county courthouse a couple of 20 something babes asked me why Old Glory was at half mast.

I had to tell them that it was Pearl Harbor day.

As a people we just don't appreciate our hard won liberty, freedom and way of life.

It looks like the planes are falling out of the sky in Iran. Is there any doubt in anyone's mind that we have a laser parked over Iran and when the intel comes in we fire that baby up. Power Struggle

Superficially I find this encouraging, but I have no doubt that if we ever attacked Iran, for any reason, these same students would be lining up to volunteer as suicide bombers.

Islam trumps EVERYTHING.

So much potential in the youth of Iran met my 3rd or 4th Persian in my life at a party Friday night, just like the ones before seemed like the kind of guy you would like to have working for you or be friends with. Just a first opinion but the others were neighbors and the same.

Are there Iranians that are not Islamnazis that are not students?..
In Iran I mean.. What is the "mood" of the average Iranian?..

Are they Jihad condoning generally or not?..
I read something that implys most(70+%) of muslims condone Jihad..
And that 90+% depise Jews... and by inference christians..

Nationalism comes naturally as well.

Would that we had stayed out of Iran altogether.

You would be surprised that the youth is not anti-American as you think they would be.

Dont write them off so easily.

The young folks now view WWII much like we probably viewed the Civil War when we were in our teens and early 20's. When I was 20, the Civil War had been over about a hundred years. People who are 20 are now looking back at a war that was over sixty years ago. The liberal control of the education system is too busy teaching about Kwanzaa and other politically correct "history" to spend any more than maybe a paragraph on Pearl Harbor and WWII. - Even when I was in school, we spent a huge amount of time learning about the Amazon Indians and what kind of houses they lived in and how they pounded some root or the other. George Washington looked on from his cloudy, unfinished portrait on the wall and I wondered who he was.

Re your post #16:

Based on what I know, many Iranians including students and the youth are not anti-Israel/Jews or anti-West or anti-America. Many aren’t even “strictly” practicing Muslims and don’t condone Jihad. Though most Iranians are, in fact, Muslims, as you know.

Many younger or otherwise Iranians, especially those who were born after the revolution and come from a lower socio-economic class, have been and are very much brainwashed by the mullahs & their propaganda. Many are still very much exposed to Soviet style communist propaganda, though it may sound like a contradiction i.e. Islam vs. Communism. Mullahs have been controlling their education and every aspect of the society there. The longer the mullahs last, the more indoctrinated these people will become, perhaps, without even recognizing it. They are exposed to it on a daily basis and through various means. Mullahs look to further impose an Arab/Islamic ideology and culture on Iranians; it is of course in their interest to do so, though they call themselves Persians. In ideology, they certainly aren’t “Persians”. It is very sad indeed.

"...According to received reports, today on this anniversary more than 4000 students of the Tehran University were able to gather; as they chanted slogans such as “Death to despotism” and “death to the dictators” they were battered by herds of the regime’s agents and disciplinary guards. The number of intelligence and security agents is reported to have been more than 5000.
The students who are enraged by censorship and suppression of the universities, clashed with the regime guards and broke down the gate of the technical school of Tehran university and entered..."

I think they'll be free in a few weeks, maybe less....................FRegards

Yes, very well, our babysitter is Muslim, his mother was our child care keeper; they are absolutely wonderful people and great neighbors. I have trusted my childrens care with them. I believe though my comment was concerning Persians/Iranians not Muslims, they are not mutually exclusive.
