Islamic Revolution has been a success? Yeah tell that to the 30,000+ executed since 1979. Tell that to the thousands raped, tortured, imprisoned during 1979. Tell that to the kids killed in 2009.

Are you out of your mind? We can't even choose to wear our own clothing. Since when are you AGAINST the separation of Mosque and State?

We need secular democracy in Iran, not this theocratic nightmare.

The Islamic Republic has been a material "success" in the sense that it has one of the lowest standards of living of any major oil-producing state (not to mention having some of the most polluted cities in the entire world), but in the moral sense in that it is the world's leading executioner and, indeed, executed more Iranians in 2013 alone than the Shah's regime did in the years 1941-1979. There you have it: if that's not success, then what is?
