Ah, Juan, you were almost there, but you stopped yourself. Your comparisons of the current US and Iran were spot on up to a point.
“Iran’s elections are deeply flawed because the candidates are vetted for ideological purity by regime hard liners. But once the vetting is done, the elections are mostly fairly aboveboard…”
Make that, “The US elections are deeply flawed because the candidates are vetted for ideological purity by “party insiders”. But once the vetting is done, the elections are mostly fairly aboveboard…”
And there I said what you did not.
As the books by William Blum demonstrate, the U.S. government has been involved in election-fixing, assassinations, etc., making the U.S. one of the most EVIL countries in the history of the world!
I watched Andrea Mitchel equate the message from Iran to the tweet from Trump. No Andrea–THE PRESIDENT OF THE US THREATENED THE DESTRUCTION OF THE PEOPLE OF IRAN. This comment by Trump is outrageous------and the WORLD should respond to the out of control US military. We live in a military corporate police state----people need to wake up. Support INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM-SUPPORT THE COMMONS.
