Country on the east side of the Arabian gulf. Iran is ethnically diverse with Persians, Azeris, Kurds and Lurs living there.
Iran used to be a monarcy run by the Shar, but he was corrupt, and liked to use his police a bit too much, many people were dirt poor also. The west backed the Shar but during 1978-1979 the Islamic Revolution occured, and Iran's religious elite (the clerics) siezed power.
Iran today is a kind of semi-democracy, and so is ironically much more legitimate than most of the US 'allies' in the region. However the ruling religious elite are a hot minded bunch who see themselves in the van of a gradiose world-historical movement in which their interpretation of Islam will triumph over their enemies (and incidently give them alot of power).
The Iranians grand ambitions are now manifest in their quest to develop nuclear weapons. They also like to sound off about Israel, the Holocaust, interpretations of Western history, The Crusades, anything which will give them some attention basically.
If the Iranians get close to full enrichment Israel will strike with or without US backing, this will throw the region into chaos. If the US strike the same thing will happan. If the US invades it will be insane and the end of superpower status, but the alternative?
In Iran, women have to wear the Hejab but some are no doubt real hot underneath.
A country in the Middle East. One of the few NON Arabic countries in the Middle East. They are actually Persian, not Arab, so don't get confused. 1950-1960 Good times in Iran where the mood was western like here. After the revolution, it turned into a chaotic land. Hopefully it will be restored to what it used to be, someday.
Iran is a country of beuty, spoiled by its government.
a country that was once great and has been twisted by their fundamentalist leaders. america will not invade iran. the government of iran is americas enemy, not the people.
iran is located in the middle east, and was once a more western, free country.
Iran is desert? Shows how much you fucking know about it eh?
Iran is known for its huge variations in terrain. The Mountains, Grasslands, Caves, Jungles, Rivers and Deserts are all in Iran
Formerly (until 1935), Persia. a republic in SW Asia: an Islamic republic since 1979. 53,920,000; ab. 635,000 sq. mi. (1,644,650 sq. km) . Cap.: Tehran.
A country which once ruled half the world. Currently under the dictation of an Islamic government, which is ripping the nation to pieces.
Various terrains, such as mountains, jungles, deserts, grasslands, etc., can be found in Iran without much difficulty. Huge natural gas and oil reserves are probably the reason Iran is still on the Map.
There are people of many races, religions and cultures all around Iran.
All 'n all, great country to spend a vacation in, not the place you want to raise your children.
I just gave you some facts about Iran without starting a war.
ern country bordering Iraq
, the Caspian Sea
and the Persian Gulf
Ruled by the Pahlavi
line until 1979
, when the religious leader Ayatollah Khomeini
came to power. In November
1979, Iranians overran the American embassy
in Tehran and took 66 people hostage
, some of whom were eventually kept for 444 days. There was a failed American attempt to come rescue the hostages, but it was over a year of negotiation
with then-President Jimmy Carter
and the fact that Iraq
invaded Iran in 1980
(for unrelated re...
The country which will not be invaded by the USA since, unlike Iraq, Iran has a missile range which can reach Europe, and a modern radar and communications system not to mention approximately an army, including both conventional and revolutionary personnel, of about 750,000 strong. Furthermore attacking Iran, the third largest oil producing country in the world, would dramatically increase oil prices. Notice that Iraq, despite having such a low production of oil, was able to increase the price of oil dramatically. The government also contributes to the stability of Afghanistan, Iraq, and virtually the entire eastern portion of the Near East. So any attack would compromise everything hat the USA tried to do in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Furthermore, it has been historically shown that any empire that tries to conquer the modern day Iran either losses control of it in about a hundred years, gets destroyed by Iranians, or eventually is taken over by Iranian administrators since the guys who have conquered Iran do not have a clue about running the governments. And given the current case of Iraq, the USA certainly falls under that category.
Furthermore, if the USA attacks Iran, a country with three times the land and populous of Iraq, would very dangerously stretch US forces too thin to effectively engage in an actual threat from another country.
Iran will not be next country attacked unless the entire US representative and military personnel are complete idiots. Therefore, it will most probably happen ;).
A used to be peaceful country.
If you research deep iranian,american,and iraqi history, you would find out that the bush senior supported and persuaded saddam to attack iran, a YEAR before the gulf war. What the Hell is going on hear?
America The beautiful and great--
but ran by dumbasses who cant keep this great country in good health
