I do because I can


I prefer to not write about the politics and anything related to it. First I don't think I have enough knowledge about this complicated matter and another reason which is the main one is that, this subject is enough frustrating as it is and only talking about it makes me physically sick. But sometimes it's quit impossible to resist. Feeling the shadow of strong negative stereotypes on Iran seems the ever lasting part of this paradoxical country.
We are getting famous for things that only a minority of the huge population can relate to. The minority who has the remarkable part of the power in its hands. Iranian people are not identical twins, even the governments themselves are not the same,... yes people are different but see what kinds of pictures have been presented as typical stereotypes: intolerance, fanaticism, hard-liners, supporters of terrorism...
Every time through history when you see one country had power, it soon got diverted into savage things.
Now the western countries and on top of them the US get along with any country when it can be a good boy, no matter how human rights are exterminated there and if a country is not a goody-goody then this country's inside problems like freedom of speech is the strongest concern, how ridicules!
They do it because they can. This is not just exclusive to super powers. Iranian government dose it too with Afghan people, throwing them with the cruelty out of Iran these days. Every country does it, it depends how much its power can stretch.
The world of human beings is where every higher power can drive its belows, can savage whoever he wills. Crazy world...

A free country may have to work with a tyranny if there is a common enemy that is worse, but nobody likes it. The obvious example is that we allied with Stalin to defeat Hitler. That doesn't mean that Churchill thought Stalin was a good guy.____As for Iran, I think the general perception is of a good people suffering under a bad government.
