My favorite days of the week are when the Ahmadenijads and Bin Ladins of this world, all-knowingly proclaim the "defeat/end/collapse/etc... of democratic and liberal systems."
Wow. defeat? Defeated by what? By a theocratic state that has contributed nothing to this world except angst and repression? Or by a sexually repressed and frustrated man who lives his life in caves?
The Iranian regime is saved from the world's wrath, not because of its inherent strength... but rather because of the inherent divisiveness of the international community. Bin Laden, will die and leave nothing behind except the legacy of a deranged idiot.
Even the so-called nuclear technology that "Iranians" are developing has basically been bought and paid for from the Russians. It is so hard to listen to the Supreme Idiot in Tehran proclaim his country's "technological triumphs" when all he has to show for them are obsolete and purchased technologies, as well as the remnants of the Shah's economic/military legacy.
Death of liberalism and democracy indeed! I wish I could proclaim the death of the "Islamic revolution," (whatever that means) and of "political Islam," except, I can't.... Both these entities were never alive to begin with!
