    Earth to Inrajaya, come in Indrajaya. Let me be the first to welcome you back to reality. Let me deal with your points one by one. You have stated: (a) Iran is ..."a modern, advanced democracy" In fact, Iran is an anachronistic Theocracy that uses a legal code based on Sharia that is anything but modern. They mask as a democracy, though any political opposition or opposition parties are outlawed. (b) "who respect human rights". In fact Iran has one of the worst Human Rights records in the world let alone middle east. Treatment of women, political arrest and detention and state sanctioned murder as well as total lack of independence of judiciary. Not really a great record. (c) "people buying cars". Yes, unfortunately they cant buy gas as it is rationed. and the subsidy is bankrupting the country. (d) "better than Iraq, afghanistan and Egypt." Quite a group to compare. Afghanistan one of the poorest countries in the world. Iraq, at war for 25 years, and in civil war.
