such as the Ayatollah Khameinei… do we invite them to RIP (rest in peace), or RIH (rot in hell)?
The symptoms being described sound a lot like congestive heart failure, which on top of cancer, doesn’t bode well for his long-term investment returns. And yet, as much as Iran’s mullahcracy has inflicted evil after evil upon the world for the past thirty years (and don’t get me wrong, the US had to do some evil mean shitty things to win the cold war: folks forget that international Sunni terrorism/guerillas was our weapon against Godless Communism in Afghanistan)…
I find myself with no feelings of animosity at all, merely a desire that all of these schmucks get off the stage so that the Iranian people can return to their true historical greatness. And that’s odd, because I’m not exactly known as the most charitable of my friends… what I saw done by the Communists in East-Central Europe would have inspired me to a revolution, but I can guarantee you that there wouldn’t have been a “Velvet” thing about it.
So what, I wonder, makes the difference? It’s not the depravity: the mullahcracy is every bit as bad as the Soviets were, and form the same sort of brutal kleptocracy that characterizes Putin’s Russia today… with the possible exception being that the Russians may generally hate Jews, but they don’t send strike teams all the way to South America simply because they have a chance to whack a few who have their guard down.
What gives, I wonder?
