"Number one exporter of terrorists beside Pakistan."

First of all, just based on English, a country can't "export" people, namely terrorists. A country can deport people, or outsource people, but not "export" since that word describes shipping ITEMS. That being said...

Lol. ABSOLUTELY WRONG. I would like anyone, anyone at all, name an Iranian person who directly carried out a terrorist attack? Hmm...either the response would "I don't know any" or "Yeah, that blah blah Arab guy"...of course forgetting that IRANIANS ARE NOT ARAB!!!!!!!!! Also, it's surprising, that despite 9/11th, the person doesn't seem to mention Saudi Arabians, which constituted a majority of the hijackers. Hmm...Maybe that's because the Bush Administration, who basically grovel at the royal Saudis feet (look at the gas prices if you need proof ;)), have completely misinformed the stupid that Saudis are friends and that Iran is the enemy. This is laughable because the Saudis have a monarchy (which Americans ironically fought against in the Revolutionary War, remember?), compared to Iran, which has a semi-representative government. Of course, the big difference hinges the fact that Iran doesn’t supply oil to the U.S, whereas Saudi Arabia does. So, if you want to be a Saudi puppet like the president, then by all means support the quote.

Furthermore, just as a little known fact, Iran has captured the most Al-Qaeida agents than any other country in the world, even including the US :D. Take that sucka. So perhaps, the U.S. people when they vote for someone who is tough on terrorism and gets the job done, should elect Iranian government officials instead of people like Bush...just as a thought.

"Iran is one of the biggest exporter of oil and gas but they say they need atomic energy! Isn’t it funny?"

What a bunch of croc. Iran, despite being a huge exporter of oil, has an inadequate refining capacity and huge amount of oil demand internally. This is due to the country's energy needs, both automotive and industrial, growing at an alarming rate. Therefore, in order to export as much oil as possible, these internal needs can't be siphoned off to Iranians with huge subsides. How? Through plans initiated by the government which will head initiatives for automobiles to run on compressed natural gas, which is less in-demand than oil, and yes, by using nuclear power to generate electricity. Make sense? And while the cost of internally supplying nuclear fuel is huge and not economical, Iranians has learned all to well that foreigners can't be trusted in sensitive matters, such as the oil nationalization crisis in 1953, which brought in the repressive Shah. So, if for example, Iran decides to receive foreign nuclear fuel and not produce it, and then the foreign nuclear fuel abruptly stops being delivered. That would mean a huge part of the power grid would go out permanently until Iran could find another way to supply electricity. That could take an order of a year to do, which would not be good for any country. Still makes sense? Add to the fact that oil WILL eventually run out, the nuclear option is tantalizing.

Notice that this doesn't disprove that Iran may want nuclear arms as well, merely that generating nuclear power is a wise decision and good on it's own.
How my definition of Iran is far better than the one I quoted simply because I ACTUALLY KNOW SOMETHING!!!! In other words, be smart an don't do drugs :)!

First of all, I'm Iranian. Secondly, take into consideration that Iran has been CORRUPTED by religion. When the Shah was in control, it was much better, and you all know it. It's blatant that when Khomeini (Bless his soul) came into control, Iran went downhill, and is still on that downfall. Hopefully the government will change.
Let's fly to Iran, and enjoy the supressed economy!

A beautiful mountainous country of the Mideast world-renowned for its innumerable contributions to world culture, refined classical music, high standard of education, and delicious cuisine. Also has an interesting mix of ethnicities and religions including Jewish, Kurdish, Azerbaijani, and Georgian. Unfortunately for many years it was ruled by the dictatorial Shah Pahlavi; the mullah Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini; and the anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, Hezbollah-supporting Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. However, now with the much more moderate Hassan Rouhani in power, we and many other countries around the world now have a chance at peace with Iran. Iran is bordered by Armenia, Turkey, Iraq, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
President Obama has a chance at better diplomatic relations with Iran now that Hassan Rouhani is in power.

Iran was not perfect before the Islamic Revolution. Hence why there WAS an Islamic Revolution. The majority of people living in Iran were poor in the 20th century, while the Shah basked in riches. That's WHY they revolted.

Yes, Iran has had a rich past, but the lives of Iranians were not any better before the Islamic Revolution than they are now. They DID have more freedom, but there was still a great amount of dissatisfaction.
Mohammed Reza Shah tried to make the lives of Iranians better, but all his developments were centralized to the rich folks.

The next country that Bush will invade. The reason for this, is that Iran is developing nuclear technology, wich will probably be used for energy, but Bush thinks it will be for wepons, despite the fact that the US has thousands of nukes, designed to kill as many people as possible.
