  1. They killed 176 people but 63 of them were Canadians. They also murdered 1500 unarmed young protesters including 400 women and 17 children just last month in a nationwide protest against the regime. The order to kill came from the top leadership. These are most recent massacres but many more just past few years. https://www.voanews.com/middle-east/voa-news-iran/us-confirms-report-citing-iran-officials-saying-1500-killed-protests The reason Iranians cannot rid of this regime btw, is because the regime is too brutal and order its hired thugs to purposely target hearts and heads of prot

  2. Qassem Soleimani was an apparatus of the Iranian regime taken out by the US. IMO he was a bargaining chip provided on a silver plate to the Americans by the Ayatollahs as his gradual strength through the ranks over the years posed a real threat to the supreme leader. He was a peasant that became a general, a general who became an icon fighting off ISIS and keeping them at bay from Iran borders and yet part of the same corrupt ideology inherent in the Iranian regime that ultimately killed him off.... One would argue that the following events post his assassination is only good for Ira

  3. And Ottawa. No one is supposed to pay any attention to all the names and faces, though, and certainly not wonder if maybe we ought to do something about immigration and refugee determination. https://www.ottawapolice.ca/en/crime/wanted1.aspx

  4. No, I don’t want you to hate refugees. But if somebody expresses a willingness to go back to their country of origin, are they really refugees? I always thought refugees are suppose to come from really terrible situations. Not situations that they’d think about going back to because things aren’t as good as they thought in their new western country home. Regardless, the answer is probably that we should narrow our focus, as well as limit the number of people we accept, if our system can’t handle the volume. Which it obviously can’t. We already have many Canadians born here that are s

  7. It was more the damn devious British and fucking Winston Churchill who were stealing Iran's oil for decades and about to lose that privilege who tricked Americans into this horrible action. They provided false intelligence that Mossadegh was a communist or cooperating with the Tudeh party a Russian puppet party then.

  8. Entitled refugees? Yes, it seems so. There is an ironic story in the G&M today undoubtedly designed to raise sympathy for the plight of poor refugees trying to find housing in Toronto. It fails badly. The immediate focus, a refugee from Afghanistan, is totally unsympathetic. She whines about her housing and the money she's given and says if she knew things would be like this she'd have stayed in Turkey or back in Afghanistan. Rents are too high here and she isn't being given enough money! Then there's the Syrian refugee and his wife and five kids. He's thinking of moving, but darn it

President Trump's support for Iran nation boosts the protests. https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/jim-hanson-trumps-tweets-boost-iranian-protests-the-world-is-watching-president-warns-mullahs Iran regime killed an American contractor, then killed 176 innocents on an airplane. But the really horrifying thing is they killed more than 1,500 of their own citizens over the past months for the crime of protesting against the regime. Despite that crackdown, they are out in force protesting again, showing the bravery of the Iranian people and offering proof they are not going to accept the

  14. In a symbolic gesture Iranian protesters purposely refuse to walk over the US and Israeli flags. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/274449 The flags painted down by the regime to be walked over but instead the nation is now walking over the pictures of the ayatollahs which has brought nothing but death, destruction, misery and discrimination and division for this defenseless nation. In the second video the crowd brought down picture of general Soleimani while the crowd was cheering. I have heard crowds shouting admiration for the US before. I wonder how long before

  18. Several individuals are cited in the article. Not just one. Regardless, I put most of the blame on the federal government. They arrange for people to come, without giving a care how things go after they get here, or how it impacts certain industries like housing.

  19. Yes, lots of countries around the world have been interfered with. But they don’t act in a similar fashion. See central and South America as well as most African countries. Regardless, if you keep going back in history, you’ll see that Iran has interred in the same manner many times throughout the region. Guess what? History doesn’t start at 1953, or even 1900! It actually goes back hundreds and thousands of years. Stop giving Iran a pass on killing 63 innocent people. If you go back far enough everyone has a reason to act like an a**hole.

  20. C’mon. You talk about America as though it’s one person. America has many wise and sophisticated citizens as well as many ignorant and unintelligent citizens. It has mean spirited citizens and people of goodwill. Guess what, so does Iran and all countries. The governance structure in America is better than in most but probably not the best. Its good geography and freedom has attracted many people and built a strong economy and military. Great. With great power comes great responsibility. America’s foreign policy history has a mixed record of success and failure. Many good acts and o

  21. There are many similar scenarios when this regime has eliminated their own who may not have followed their strict way of repression (Rafsanjani, the former President of this regime) or became too popular and a threat for the leadership. Another example is ayatollah Taleghani at the beginning of the clerical coup in 1979. He became very popular as he started speaking against mass executions and extremism and suddenly he died of a heart attack the next day. Many similar examples when a popular figure who was a devoted member of the regime but deviated slightly from the extreme brutal line of the

  27. Makes you wonder why there are any homosexuals at all, what with all the heterosexual indoctrination going on. The gays are subjected to non-stop around the clock propaganda in the form of literature, film, music, commercials etc aimed at turning them straight. Not to mention the bigotry, violence and even the strong arm of the law in some countries aimed at disuading them from "choosing" to be gay. One can only assume that there must be something wrong with them. Or that it isn't a choice at all.

Look at what happened throughout Africa and tell me there wasn't a war happening. Look at the Cuban Missile Crisis. It all happened through proxies.

  30. Indeed...and no such relationship to war was intended. Iran is only one of many nations subjected to American and allied foreign policy interventions...including "regime change"...going back to the 19th century. Far more Iranians have emigrated to the USA than Americans emigrating to Iran.

This mindset is made up of a couple of things, a sense of entitlement, we have lived so long under the American defense umbrella that we now demand the coverage for free, and feel slighted when they ask us to step up and pay for some of our own defense cost, or to pay an equal share in our defense agreements...Twofaced once again we are delighted they are paying for our defense freeing up bils to be spent on luxury policies and tax breaks...but ever chance we get we stab them in the back and making it a national past time that we are proud of...we are cry babies , we want a seat at the grown u

  38. "Trump has very little intellect in place"? WTH? With what you just said shows me that you have very little intellect. Trump is a billionaire and Trump owns tons of property. For a guy who is supposed to have no intellect, Trump has sure done pretty good for a guy who has no intellect IMHO. I personally find that most Canadians lack any intellect. While Canadians own government steals from them every day, and gives them more government, and tries to take away more freedom, they appear to careless about it, which shows me that they pretty much have no intelligence at all. They appear to be more

  39. edited Let's get real. The point of this thread is a shmuck is a shmuck unless of course he/she is a refugee shmuck then it means we can use that shmuckiness to make negative assumptions about the entire refugee determination system and other refugees. I can see deficiencies in how refugees are defined and/or processed. Yes I get it. The refugee system should screen out terrorists, criminals, human rights violators, false claimants I get that...but do you want to tell me how the subjective shmuck qualities of the people you mentioned create characteristics that can be screened
