World Factbook- Iran
I hereby grant the National Etiquette Award to Iran, as it is customary in that country to remove shoes in homes.
The Iranians seem to be suceeding in their plan to enrich Uranium. It is rather worrying.
Will the Americans take military action against Iran? If they do, I will probably be undecided about the issue, just as I am undecided about the Iraq War (though I did support it at the time). I recently read 'Christinaity and War' by Laurence Vance, an American fundamentalist who is very critical of Bush's foreign policy and the Iraq war. He made some good arguments.
The Iranian president, Ahmadinejad, looks like a rather comical fellow, short, bearded and smiling a lot. However, he is deadly serious. He denies the Holocaust, talks about conspiracy theories and makes threats against Israel. A scary chap.
Iran is a Muslim country in which Christians do face persectution. For information on the persecution of Christians worldwide, visit:
