I can also provide you examples of murder and rape occurring in our country...that doesn't mean such actions are sanctioned or legitimized by our society as a whole.

There is always work to be done...as I said, our country isn't perfect. I think most people, however, are tired of being guilt-tripped and berated for being inherently racist simply because of the skin color or socio-economic background.

I have no problem with socialism, and I wouldn't be upset if our policies were more in line with proven systems like in Scandinavia or Canada.
So preferring to live in one country versus another is now considered ethnocentric and ignorant?

When/Where did I call Iranians "savages"? I don't have any issue or bias against Iranians or any other ethnic groups for that matter. You are trying your hardest to turn this into a racial argument for some reason.

I do have a huge issue with the Iranian Ayatollahs and the religious regime which has systematically suppressed the individual rights of its citizens and has been one of the greatest instigators of terrorism/violence in that region. And I certainly don't see any reason why that regime should be allowed to have nuclear weapons.

And why does opposition to that Iranian regime automatically make you a "lap dog" of the Israelis? By that same logic, are not the Saudi's, Egyptians, Qatari's then "lap dogs" of the Israelis?
