To the good people of Iran,
It seems that we find ourselves in a similar predicament. Somehow, both the people of Iran and the people of America have ended up with religious zealots who have co-opted the governments of our respective countries to meet their own ends.
You see while your government invalidated the candidacy of many of your best and brightest running for office leaving only candidates who fell in lock-step with their status quo... Our opposition party presented us with a candidate that was so unappealing to our masses that we opted to give our crackpot zealot another four years to run our country even further into the ground. The choice we were given was no real choice at all.
So here we find ourselves, in a similar predicament with leaders so bull-headed and stubborn that they'd rather risk nuclear war than actually listen to what the masses have to say. And it is rather unfortunate that our respective political processes have done us the great disservice of essentially silencing us.
At any rate, I just wanted to let you know, in the words of one of our former presidents, we "feel your pain." Unfortunately, as long as the crazies are running the asylum, I daresay that we're all well on our way up shit creek without a paddle (at times like these I do wish I knew a witty enough equivalent in Farsi to show greater respect to your great language and nation). I do wish you the best of luck in regaining control of your asylum... And come this November, we'll do our best to regain some semblance of control over ours... But I do want to warn you, with the alternative leaders we're being presented right now-- I don't know how likely we are to succeed.
Best of luck and warmest regards,
