They're as progressive as you are, give or take.

Who told you Iran was progressive? In what way?

It's more regressive than Saudi or ISIS in many ways.

It's a cancer. It needs to be taken out.

Saudis are a PoS but they are changing.. like opening up movie theaters and letting women drive. They'll get over their WAHABI nonsense eventually. Maybe another 50-100 years but they'll get over it.

Iran? The current Iranian setup came about by a very bloody REVOLUTION. And like all revolutionary regimes, it wants to spread it's cancer. (see Cuba, see USSR, see France)

Also like all revolution inspired govts, they need prove their point over and over again by making people miserable and humiliating them over tiny little things.

Iran is more progressive than that but some of their authorities are not.

You've never been outside the US. How the hell would you know? LOL

Right... the "I met an Iranian at work and he seemed nice.."?

Everyone in America turns "nice". One of the benefits of strong law and order.

Ladies arrested for doing yoga are welcome to serve their sentence in my house.....for wayward women.

Kinda like the Roach Motels - they get in, but they don't come out?

Don't know what your love life is like Spork but the ladies who come to my place always leave satisfied.

This is probable cause for the US to start bombing them in comrade Boazo's racist mind.
Every country has idiots, look at the Orange criminal we have running our country.

We have cops in THIS country shooting and killing black people for no reason other than they can. We have a cop that murdered a handcuffed girl with her hands behind her back by putting a gun in her mouth and pulled the trigger.

Maybe we should clean up our own house first before we call others houses messy?!?!

Ya have to wonder if Iran hasn't been Trump's back pocket 'wag the dog if needed' plan, considering what he knows, but doesn't want the rest of us to know, about his shady business.

Since he pulled out of the nuke deal pronto, setting things up for a showdown in the future.

Its changing...

Its fascinating watching the US change as "law and order" falls by the wayside in the big cities where disorder is rewarded.

Probably, the world revolves around Trump, been this way for thirty to forty years...

Ya never know, ANDREA. Something was fishy about his canceling the Iran nuke deal when our best intelligence people and diplomats (and our allies and other international parties to the accord) were strongly advising him against it, telling him Iran was abiding by the deal.

What greater deal did he negotiate as he claimed he would seek to do once in office? I haven't read a word about his offering new to open new negotiations.

USA has thanked Pakistan for bringing the Taliban to the negotiating table.

OOPS

So, Ignoramus, I just showed you an Islamic country making peace.

Meanwhile a Christian country (the US) is making more war.

it's a repressive misogynistic

You live without a woman. What would you know of misogyny?

Or perhaps THAT is why you are alone. LOL

"An establishment that finds even yoga harmful does not need the USS Abraham Lincoln warship to end its existence," another tweeter added, referring to the recent deployment of US warships to the region.

True dat.

Has anyone seen an Iranian woman in yoga pants? Especially doing the over the dog pose? It's equally as ugly as watching a fat MAGA white woman do it. Why do you white American woman wear yoga pants? Don't share your thunder thighs with us, please!

In the US we arrest and sometimes execute people for things like picking up trash outside of their house.

And when it happens the guy who posted this article supports it 100%.

This isn't enough dirt on Iran. We need more before going to war and it shouldn't be hard to find.
