You end this as though the Islamic Republic is bad. I quite respect Iran. They are a power in Asia and they have done it without isolating the nation's wealth into a small upper class.

They've banned music. People have to buy their Metallica CDs through the black market.

They whip and beat homosexuals. They claim Iran has no homosexuals.

That's respectable?

I think Metallica should be moved to the black market.

How different is it from what America would be like if the right took total control for 20+ years?

And I said I respect the nation; I didn't say I want to fucking move there.

Yes, a good reminder of the idiocy of of US Foreign Policy under the Cold War. Zia owed his position to US support.

As far as dictators go, not a bad dictator either.

He's the only modern dictator that isn't universally hated.
