Is Iran as democratic as the United States?

"If you are new to The Dilbert Blog, I remind you that I have no idea what I’m talking about when it comes to world affairs. The point is for you to set me straight in the comments."

Thanks, Scott Adams, for pointing out the similarities between the USA and Iran. For as readers of Orwell, Kafka, et al. know already, aggression is born of a conviction that "they" are somehow different from "us".  Whatever the rights and wrongs of anything, healthy if ignorant ranting in the comments beats Excocet missiles, any day. (At time of writing, Scott’s post has stimulated a significant number — but no missiles that I can see.)
