Iranians Are Begging To Be Invaded


From Strategy Page:


"July 21, 2007: A recent opinion survey showed that 58 percent of Iranians would support a foreign invasion to overthrow the current religious dictatorship. However, nearly 70 percent would prefer a popular, but non-violent, revolution, like the one that tossed out European communist dictatorships in 1989-90. Worse, 92 percent do not approve of how their government operates.

"Only eleven percent oppose democracy, and 72 percent did not support the "Islamic Revolution" that has dominated the country for 28 years. Still, most Iranians are not willing to fight, knowing that the minority of Iranians who do support the government are armed and willing to kill Iranians that oppose them.

"The survey also showed that 78 percent of Iranians believe the country should have nuclear power, but only 46 percent believed they should have nuclear weapons. Interestingly, 52 percent believed that Western Europe would accept Iran having nuclear power. People are not happy with the government foreign policy, with 60 percent opposing support of Hizbollah, 56 percent oppose support for Hamas, and 70 percent oppose the destruction of Israel. However, a third of the population agreed with president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's contention that the World War II German death camp program, that killed six million Jews, never happened".

Well shit, where were all these freedom yearning turds in 1979, when Ahmadinejad and company were busy taking American hostages, overthrowing the Shah, and installing an oppressive, brutal theocracy? To hell with them. If we invade, it should be to make Iran into a parking lot, which is what we should have done on 12 September 2001, along with Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan.

I suspect that 58% of Iranians yearning for invasion have mostly been born after Khomeini's revolution in 1979 and don't see much to admire about it. It's the forty plus crowd that shows up for the Friday prayers to shout "Death to America!" The twentysomethings are shouting for them to just get over it. Take a look at Iran's fashion police. It's mostly old crones scolding and arresting young chicks showing too much hair. That's a pretty good way to get a revolution started: Empower cranky old bitches to make everyone's life miserable.
