1. I thought it was also lack of free expression but whatever.
2. And asian country could be considered that
3.DAMN! in Nam it's 3$ and I thought that was cheap!

Maybe when Reagen gave the Ayatollah arms for hostages, he should've asked for some cheap movies or something :D

Is it considered lack of free expression to be a little covered up. I for one know of the "judging by looks" in the us and I dont see whats wrong with a scarf or loosed clothing. Oh and to clear another misconception, Iran doesnt restrict women.
There are more women politicians in Iran than in the US...

jk 2 for a buck! Bring me back one!!! Anyways. It's always very interesting to hear about other countries. Aren't you scared to be over there with all that's going on?

nothing is really happening. its the same as it was 2 years ago but even better. lol they got coke and fanta now! (before they only had Zam-Zam soda). Even Pringles (though it was 2 bucks lol)
90% of the misconceptions about iran are not true. Iran is one of the best off muslim countries after maybe Kuwait, Qatar, and Bahrain. Its GDP is the highest in the region. Why is it so hated? so they did a mistake during a time of turmoil... why should they not be forgiven? i mean were allies with germany, japan, italy, and russia. havent they done more against the us in the past than iran?

A month ago an irano-canadian photograph got beaten to death by iranian soldiers because she was taking pictures outside a prison where political prisoners are held...
hmm...I'm not so sure...

You see that was because of the hard-liner minority in the Iranian government...
The president wants to loosen some of the laws (free speech, release of political prisoners, etc.) but the the hard-liners made it so they can overrule anything the president or the other politicians wants to change.
I assuming this is similar to that...
The people arent like the government (i.e. USA, Iraq, Empire)
