Uniquely wicked. That's an interesting way to justify trivializing what is going on in Iran. Its not uniquely wicked. One can only guess why you think wicked has to be unique before it becomes significant enough to criticize.

 

I am happy to criticize many countries, including Iran. It is an awful regime.

Spanky,

I have alot of respect for your views but with all due respect you are not listening...

Your notion of taking a revisionary POV regarding China’s atrocity in the past is a position that is futile to hold any conversation.

By that standard I can argue that the whole foundation of US of A is based on genocide of its natives and using them as slaves to build the country. Whilst this is true and it is good acknowledging that (which btw countries like UK doesn’t want to recognise its past in slavery) we need to recognise the fact that situation NOW is very different.

Iran was a country with 2500 history of monarchy. Whilst some kings were a disservice some like Shah and his father Reza Shah genuinely and passionately loved Iranians of any kind and their country. The savages that are ruling Iran NOW are aliens that are loathed and hated by Iranians for the atrocities they are committing against mankind and very much loved by countries like UK and weak leaders such as Theresa May who love licking Mullah’s asses for business...

 

The British will grovel to anyone for business. Observe their tact on the KSA/Canada spat and their courting of criminal Russian oligarchs.

Doesn't everyone?  It's like dropping corporate tax rates - you fail to do so at your own peril.

To some extent. The Norwegians are tougher in these matters than most small nations can afford to be:

Even in a dispute with China they didn't rush to reconcile:
