they’re too right-brained and they love themselves too much to blow themselves up but they did lose one of their main guys who just recently defected n i forget his name (it was in the news this week)

i mean come on- if they blow themselves up how are those mullahs going to carry out the cash & gold they’ve stored up for themselves(not talking about the “”smart”mullahs who have suisse bank accts or offshore

that country is a party waiting to happen!
