Boo hoo. Israel can learn to play nice. If not,maybe a faceful of plutonium will deter them? The sanctions on Iran are illegal and always have been. Iran has every right to develop nukes. Their soveriegnity is as valid as Israel's or our own. Time to make peace with them. They aren't the monsters the media keeps portraying.

Biden is dumping in his loons.

He should send hand drawn hearts to both countries and quote the great Rodney King, "People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along?"

Regardless of what Democrats do. The Israeli branch of our government (Republicans) will do whatever Israel demands.

#6 - You must be talking about our great ally and close personal friends of the bloated orange diaper dumper and his plastic son-in-law, Saudi Arabia. Or maybe you're talking about Dotard's partners in peace negotiations and invitees to Camp David, the Taliban?

You turn a blind eye to far greater atrocities and anti-American behavior from the Saudis because Trump was too happy to rub their swords. Bin Laden was Saudi, so where 13 of the 9/11 hijackers. Saudi royals financially support the madrasas that pump out America hating terrorist curious Saudis. Jared's pillow talk buddy Bin Salman had an American resident tortured to death and then sawed into pieces, and Trump covered for him! So STFU about supposed terrible things in Iran because they happen all over the ME.

The sooner the Iranians get to nuclear ambiguity the better.

I don't turn a blind eye to ANY of it. Any society that allows children to be beheaded are monsters. I figured that would be universally agreed upon you think it's okay that the Iranians do it because the Saudis do too? So you tell me to STFU? Who is the one turning a blind eye?

Then you rinvoke Trump. Why is it you myopic fools assume anyone who disagrees with them must be. Trumper. I am not and have never been a fan of the orange man you are so obsessed with.

The Iranians have a rich and unique culture. They have been badly used by the West. Lied to and their government overthrown so oil interests could steal their hydrocarbons. They rightfully fear and distrust the British and Americans.

All this talk about tyrants and evil but no one mentions the Shaw. Or the secret police and dungeons of the Shaw. He was a creature installed by western imperialism. the Iranians have a democratic government and free elections.

Do the Saudi's? Can everyone vote in Israel? The Iranians are tolerant of religious minorities. The have a large Jewish population compared to the Sunni states.

Propaganda has made people see monsters in people who could be our natural allies.

They are democratic and freedom loving people.

You mean this rich and unique culture?

"Honor killings in Iran are usually planned in advance with silent approval of female members of the family even mothers and sisters of the victims. Due to sensitivity of the issue of family dignity, a great portion of these murders are not reported to the legal authorities or persecuted. In most honor killing cases in Iran, the perpetrators are considered family heroes. "

I can't believe y'all call yourselves Liberals and are trying to deny honor killings are bad.

#15 | Posted by Miranda7 at 2021-11-27 10:27 AM | Reply

Who said they're bad?

As opposed to a rarer phenomenon than presented by people with an axe to grind?

The entire ME and much of Africa has these "honor killings" ,nobody thinks they're a good thing. American culture breeds mass shooters and serial killers. Does that make everything about America "evil and insane". You have selective outrage. The Israeli's defy international law and built " settlements" on occupied land stealing private property and killing and displacing the rightful owners into open air prisons they bomb with impunity. They shoot people for standing by a fence in broad daylight. Medics and press are killed too.

You just don't like Iran. Admit you're a bigot.

It's ok, we're all anonymous here.

Honor killings are bad, just like all murders, but there is no comparison to ginning up an invasion based on lies and deceit that ends up killing 100s of thousands of innocents while leaving millions more injured and psychologically maimed.

But we honor our bombs and the sacred military who drops them because they don't simply decapitate-- they shred and mangle and obliterate. Cleaner, right?

It is obvious to any clear-headed individual that if we didn't worship our almighty MIC along with our daily bread and excuse over 6 decades of foolish intervention in the region then Iran would most likely be a fairly moderate pro-western force in the middle east.

But yeah, "honor killings" bellows the wolf to the lamb....

Is that kinda like how Kyle Rittenhouse is considered a hero by millions on the right?

"I don't know how honor killings got into the subject of the article that was posted"

Miranda7 was trying to justify Israel's honorable and altruistic behavior towards its evil, baby-eating neighbors through the logical fallacy of "false equivalence"

He failed miserably.

My favorite quote
He said.

We have honor killings
You have crimes of passion

Dead on

Miranda wasnt trying to justify anything. Miranda was merely responding to the Efffete's statement "They aren't the monsters the media keeps portraying".

There's a ton more.

Stupid people killing for stupid reasons is universal.

Spreading hate isn't.

"They aren't the monsters the media keeps portraying".

They aren't all monsters.

Just the conservatives.

Just like here in America.

Conservatives are monsters. To put it politely.

World would be better off without conservatives.
