With no lumber and paper mill natural resources left, Iran has no domestic or cheap import paper source.

Most of Iran's paper comes from China. Who is no doubt gouging Iranian publishers.

But in a country where thought crime is a legal charge, books any public social discussion are heavily censor ... Read more

...and criminals tend to ignore the law.

of all of them since 1979, the biggest mistake Iran has made was to create the conditions for another cold war, this time among Israel, Iran and possibly now the gulf states who have no choice but to consider getting nukes.

I am assuming for the sake of arg ... Read more

Yet, Iran still argues it has the right to produce Nuclear "Energy"...

I believe if you solar panelled just one of Iran's Kavirs (pick a Kavir, any Kavir), you could produce enough electricity to power Iran forever.

For free.

Tunisia had a "functioning democracy" under Ben Ali, although he became a dictator. As a result of the revolution, he fled Tunisia and the Tunisian Supreme Court took control by installing the head of Tunisia's Parliament as temporary President, until the election.

Tunisia is Islamic however, and a ... Read more

Any revolution that has a benevolent dictator improves the situation.

European Socialism and Marxism failed eventually due to the failure of Nationalism to keep it glued together. When people are fed enough (socialism spreading the output/wealth among the workers producing it) they tend to get gre ... Read more

I was only being sarcastic at your sarcasm.

But again, I think you keep missing my point. (maybe I just don't get your reply, this is a problem with non face to face debating.)

I'm not dissing Mexican culture. I love Mexican culture. And Im not being sarcastic. You keep bringing this u, so I want ... Read more

It's OK, I usually win these debates. Because I'm a Master Debater.

I agree with you totally. I just don't see Revolution as any sort of guaranteed way to happiness. Because usually, the people doing it are usually Revolting.

Also don't mistake my criticism of Mexico's 10 years of Revolution as a ... Read more

I agree with you.

But you have not named a successful revolution in which one corrupt dictatorship was NOT replaced by another corrupt dictatorship.

You cited Mexico as your only example. Mexico is your example of a successful revolution?

Find me ONE example where dictatorship was replaced by fre ... Read more

The problem with all revolutions is that the reality is that the people merely trade in one dictatorship for another.

This is why in my opinion, I agree with Chesterton's quote; "You can never have a revolution in order to establish a democracy. You must have a democracy in order to have a revoluti ... Read more

The FACT is that the Shah had a history of conceited selfish cowardice. And fi you play the video back, and watch ALL the body language, you can see he was a little more than a tad, "fem".

Here's additional data:

- He knew he had terminal cancer as much as 3-5 years before he died.
- He had not o ... Read more

Well said. If Khamenei puts one of his sons in power it will be only too obvious. But it will hopefull be the end of this disgraceful period of our history.

Agreed. This is what makes Khamenei 's propsitiom so transparent and flawed. He actually thinks he has invented a new Islamic socioeconomic governance system!

But in fact he has merely come up with the same old Marxism. With the same old massive failures that come with it.

I agree. It is clear now that the shah was afraid. A coward to be more accurate . Evety action points to this. No surprise that he would cover in the face of holiness too and bow to the witchcraft he was simply to frightened of to deny.

The price we pay whenever we think another king can save us. ... Read more
