the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) Government works?
Suppose that, according to the US Constitution, every potential
candidate for President, the Senate or the House of Representatives
had to receive the approval of a 12 man committee appointed by the
National Rifle Association (NRA) before he could actually run for
Suppose that any legislation coming out of the Congress had
to be ratified by this NRA committee before it could become law
and that this committee indeed had total veto authority.
Suppose that the head of the NRA had the constitutional authority
to dismiss the President and/or the Congress if he saw fit.
Suppose that the heads of all armed services, police forces,
broadcast media and the Supreme Court were appointed directly by
the head of the NRA.
Suppose that the head of the NRA, not the President, was the
Commander in Chief of the armed forces.
Now suppose that the next NRA-approved Democratic Presidential
candidate ran on a platform calling for tough new federal gun control
would you trust him to keep his campaign promises?
Well so are we!

If not, don't worry, it also doesn't make much sense to the Iranians!
