As I have said I am more than happy to accept a one rule for all but I find this "they dont agree with us therefore they are wrong" hypocritical especially when on the other hand we are more than happy to fund "friendly" despotic lunatics in various third world countries world wide.
You realize that the Iranian leadership is just as ambitious as Saddam and Hitler where. Infact, the Iranian millitary ideology is like a combination of Stalinism and Natziism in practicality. They believe that their current status as a lesser nation is an aboration in the grand scale of history. They believe that Iran should and will rule the entire middle east from Afghanistan to Israel and therefore they will rule the world by owning the vast oil supplies. They use stalinist millitary strategy such as the charging of thousands of boys 13-18 years old armed only with the Quoran at machine guns to accomplish their victories just like they did in the Iran-Iraq war. They are the remenants of the Persian Empire and they believe that the greatest day for the Persian Empire is still on the horizon.
So if you want to be ruled by the Iranian mullahs then good for you, down with these stupid westerners and their hypocracy! If you are happy with your current life then maybe you should try and preserve the status quo in oil power like America is intent on doing.
