... those peaceful Muzzies get even crazier than usual during Ramadan ...
For all this time, you haven’t seen any ISIS-related events in Iran. On the surface, this appears to be the typical ISIS episode. Might be interesting whether this is a weekly thing now in Iran.
Well, this is curious...
Is there a coup underway? And during Ramadan?
Note: when your enemy is fighting your enemy, just stand back and let them.
The sunni-shia world war strikes close to the capital of shia...
Well, if you keep pissing people off, eventually they strike back. Iran might have to learn this lesson the hard way.
Not so curious, really. Iran is a seething cauldron, not necessarily pro-Western, but certainly anti-Islamic Republic of Iran theocracy.
There is not, and likely shall never be, any degree of “democracy” in any Islamic state. Islam by nature is an almost hereditary hierarchy, and those in position of authority depart only feet first or dead. This is an attempt to make as many dead of the positions of power as possible. Sharia law dictates that the hierarchy is an absolute, but does not specify who shall be in power. That all relates to whoever can muscle their way in. Strong and ruthless application of authority is how even the least semblance of order is maintained.
Islam was and is the National Socialist doctrines applied with the additional authority of being backed up by a deity with bloodthirsty directives. Economically, Islam is just a primitive form of socialism, with the favored ones in a position to use the capital generated for their personal benefit.
Not a merit-based society, by any means. Unless “merit” means acquisition of enough clout to mount a palace revolution.
Red on red. (Actually, Green on Green.) I am sorry, God forgive me, but I hope so. Sunni on Shiite.
Riechstag? Did someone call it the Riechstag?
If an Iranian falls in the sand and makes a sound, does anybody care?
Could be a long hot summer. So many proxy combatants, let the Iranians and Saudis duke it out among themselves.
Couldn’t happen to nicer guys.
Have to find my crocodile tears...
Good news to start the day.
Daesh is now claiming responsibility.
Who should/would care as long as it is rag head against rag head and 7th Century goat humper against 7th Century goat humper.
I do not believe a couple generations of them will be missed
Please, you guys go fight, leave western civilization out of it.
Dear Never Trumpers, Democrats and deep state moles, watch how Iran deals with those who defy them. The same Iran who Obama showered with billions, after they agreed that he was President of USA.
