The Iranian ruling class is a bunch of animals.

Especially if they are of busty young schoolgirls being molested by slimy alien tentacles.

Incidentally, in the cartoon you posted above, was the man on the left supposed to be a Pakistani or a Mauritanian, do you think? Hard to tell which flag that is on his shirt. :stuck_out_tongue:
