Lucky SOB’s. Quick and easy. In the US the GOP want to starve the ones they do not like to death, slow and painful.

We will not survive as a species unless we outgrow this pathetic need for a Cosmic Daddy, a god to love us, punish us, and tell us we really won’t die. But we will. We will all return to the nothingness from which we came.

No amount of saying special words or making ridiculous gestures will change that.

Grow up and learn to live like Human Beings. Religions are for the weak, the SCARED, the pathetic.

Democracy and freedom will not happen in Iran. Simply impossible.

These are the people who really control Iran. But the administration is too dumb and naive to understand this. Any deal they do with their government means nothing.

Meanwhile, in Texas, the spike in executions is thought to be associated only with the entertainment value for the state leaders and their big business benefactors.

Another BS article by Reuters. Do you how many people are murdered in the US?? 14,827 people in 2012 alone! We have almost the same amount of people dying in peacetime that Syria has dying in the middle of a civil war.

Most of Irans executions are for massive drug dealers, thanks to there neighbor Afganistan. And the few Arab Sunnis they kill are all Al-Qaeda terrorists.

Reuters has you believe that the people executed are innocent, when they are implicated in acts of terrorism. But then again we are supporting the ‘rebel’ terrorists in Syria. No wonder we are crying wolf on Iran. Probably from pressure from the apartheid state of Isreal!

Rouhani is just a puppet. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei holds all the power. As supreme leader, he has constitutional authority or substantial influence over the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government as well as the military and media. Khamenei is primarily interested in protecting his power and ensuring the survival of the Islamic theocracy, which he believes is based on justice, independence, self-sufficiency and piety. Human rights are not on his agenda.
