good luck to them......
Hey Iranians reading this post:
a/ you’ll get nothing from our “President”.
b/ But you’ll get the support of 150 million Americans when you disavow and promise to disassemble your country’s nuke weapons program, and WHEN YOU START KILLING Amanutjob’s cronies.
You will not get your country back marching with green banners.
They have lost the support of their youth. They must have forgotten to institute the teachings of Karl Marx in their schools and universities. When the old guard is gone, the new Iran will be a better, happier, more prosperous nation.
Our current regime will not give the students any support because it is on the other side.
