You're absolutely right, "Tim". "Spectacular" is the best word to describe the following --

The Islamic Republic's literacy rate ranking among countries is Number 151:

Its female literacy rate ranking is Number 152:

The Mollah Regime's Human Development Index (HDI) ranking of Number 76 is lower than Qatar (36), UAE (41), Bahrain (48), Kuwait (54), Saudi Arabia (57), Mexico (61), Libya (64), and Lebanon (72).

Its infant mortality ranking is Number 108:

Its life expectancy ranking is somewhere between Number 92 and 132:

You can play this game all you want, no one said Iran is Norway, nevertheless, as much as you want to deny it because it BURNS YOUR ASS, the fact is that Iran today is FAR better off than ever, and has performed SPECTACULARLY in improving living standards.

Go on and throw all the fits you want, a 67% improvement in Iran's Human Development index, is simply undeniable.

Literacy rates for Iran prior to the revoltuion: under 50%.

Literacy rates in Iran now: 98%.

Again, excellent accomplishment (particularly for women.)

In EVERY measure of human development, Iran has massively improved, and this degree of improvement far exceeded every nation in the world but for China.


Clearly, ranking somewhere between Number 92 and 132 among countries in life expectancy, Number 108 in infant mortality, and Number 151 in literacy rate is "an excellent achievement", especially when many of the country's ranked ahead of the Mollah Regime are poorer and don't have anywhere near its oil and natural gas reserves. "Excellent achievement" all around!

Yes, and imagine that Iranian had to GAIN 26 years of life expectancy to become what it is today. What an excellent acheivement.

Infant mortality rates Iran: 1979: 126, today: less than 25.

The Mollah Regime's Human Development Index (HDI) ranking of Number 76 is breathtaking. It means the IRI is ranked lower than Qatar (36), UAE (41), Bahrain (48), Kuwait (54), Saudi Arabia (57), Mexico (61), Libya (64), and Lebanon (72).

And life expectancy ranking of somewhere between Number 92 and 132 are even more impressive:
