Images of Iran

Juan Cole this morning provides a link to a wonderful slide show on real life in Iran, along with various comments from our neoconservatives here in America. The accompanying guitar music and singing is by Cat Stevens. Click on this: Iran. It’s beautiful!!

    Hi Mardé,
    Thank you so much for sharing this !!
    It was so beautiful…
    In the end,I think we aspire to the same things in life as the Irakis or anyone else; to work,play, love and work towards a better tomorrow.

    Cat Steven’s music went so beautifully with this slide show, too.

    You take care .

    Glad you liked that, Barbara. Yes, I thought it was great too, and with that Cat Steven’s music as background, it was certainly beautiful. It showed what’s important in life in any country.

    You take care too.

    Right on, sleepylakate! Of course, there are places there that aren’t beautiful, just like in any country.

    Hi,

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Maybe if you understood the subtitles you had enjoyed more the video. Fortunately, I’m Spanish, so I’ve made a translation to English. Although I recognize my English is not perfect, I hope it helps :)

    This is the translation:

    – Do it.
    – Hurry and come up here!
    – Fucker!
    – Do you think it’ll be worth much money?
    – Maybe we can eat it.
    – I had never seen such a huge dog.
    – That’s not a dog.
    – Take it out from there.
    – Interesting.
    – You’re quite good.
    – I was only protecting myself.
    – Killing people seems natural for you.
    – So being over there with those bums in a fucking shitty town is a rule?
    – I only use them.
    – Fuck the rules.
    – What’s the meaning of life when you have left out your pride?
    – Don’t be so bully, trying to give me any advice.
    – What happens?
    – A dog.
    – Although it’s badly hurt.
    – Do you think it’ll be worth much money?
    – Maybe we can eat it.
    – I had never seen such a huge dog.
    – That’s not a dog.
    – Take it out from there.
    – Interesting.

    Best wishes,
    Jon

    Yes, thanks Jon, I guessed right at some but missed most of them. Thanks for posting the translations of all those Spanish subtitles. It sure is a sad tale about that big white wolf.
