Why do we conflate "redemption" with "right to criticize"? Khamenei has a 
point, but trhat does not in any way suddenly make Iran a great place.

I can criticize Russia at the same time I criticize USA. For some reason, 
though, when I do the latter, I gat an overwhelmingly positive response, while 
the former brings in an overwhelmingly negative one.

As if criticizing Russia was supporting the US. -_-'

Sorry about that, just a beef I have...
