Thread Name: Persians
Subject: RE: Persians
Iains is nearer the mark than the people arguing with him. Mossadegh was the nearest thing to a democratically elected ruler with the country's interests at heart that Iran has had yet.

I wonder if I've met their current president. He was a postgrad in Glasgow when I was living there. Seems a great deal saner than Trump or Johnson, not that that's much of an achievement.

The people in my band call their music Persian, their language either Persian or Farsi, and their country Iran. The choice of words doesn't code any particular ideology.
