EVERYONE, including the U.S, has the right to criticize your beloved Fascist, war mongering, fundamentalism promoting, human rights violating medival IRI regime, because the Mullah regime is a threat to the WHOLE WORLD.  

Criticizing should only be the first step. The International Community has an OBLIGATION to help the Iranian people free their country from this brutal regime.
