It's amazing that a country under immense sanctions and threats of war has progressed so far, while in ours, we have yet to conduct all feasibility studies on construction of a mass transit line.

Tehran Metro looks good I think the mayor was rightly selected as world's top 10 mayors.

And I'm pretty surprised by this thread at all! I did never imagine they had such a luxury subway system in a "poor" country like Iran! But I don't want to create new disputs. I repeat: i don't want to create new conflicts (in this thread).
Iran is not a poor country at all and actually it is very rich.

Also you can see my Tehran Pictures Collection below in my signature to see how the city is and how women dress.

Also please note that all women in Iran are required to wear the scarf and an overcoat that is required by the government.

I see something similar between Iran and Italy: we all like to spend some time drinking outside in the main square or in bars along the streets just watching people passing by. The greeks had a specific word for this, "agorazein". A good translation could be: walking in the main square, chatting with friends about girls(boys) and soccer(shoes) ( ) .

Now, some more metro pics?

Hmm, this thread about the Tehran metro is pretty interesting, there's fine pics of Iranian people, also it seems to attract the non-macaronic among my country-fellows.

In a way I would agree with you, Im Indian and we have segregated train coaches, buses, taxis...but thats not to police morality, but rather respect the culture and keep women safe. Its what the women want as well.

Iran certainly isnt a poor country, it has its oil wealth. Lets get one thing clear....the people of Iran arnt like the president of Iran, same can be said for the people of America (where I live by the way), Americans certainly arnt like G W Bush.

This thread is a split for me, as a US Soldier serving in Iraq, i see iran as a destabalizing force in the reigon and a bigger threat than anything else. I also see my beleif on the faces of the iraqis i work with on a daily basis.

But outside the political realm the people of iran are nice people. Ive never had a problem with them except that im american, and theres a completly insane animosity towards the US that ive seen. However the people and the city of Tehran look beautifil (much better than sand infested -OPSEC- im in now). THe Metro is wonderfull and i wish more Petrol dollars were spent backing systems like this both in Iran and the US than systems that destory massive amounts of life and property. But since that wont happen, good luck on ya and hope i never have to fight Hagi in these stations. M4 bullets do such damage to murals, which was fun in 04 but gets old by 08.

I'm pretty drunk right now, but "M4 bullets do such damage to murals, which was fun in 04 but gets old by 08" is surely just as retarded sober. Iran is a bit nuts and out of their league, perhaps...but leave them the **** alone for now. They are legitimate.

That's sad. It seems that it's impossible to keep focused on the subject when it's about some countries. The point is that "Hagi" sometimes also have a subway.. It's the same in the SSC forum about Israel highways: the thread is polluted by this kind of stupid post.

Let me clear up some issues with my previous post.

1. If anyone outside the US took the time to read the UN resolutions at the end of the first gulf war (where the US kicked some serious butt) they will know there were/are about 50 UN Sanctions against Iraq they were not following, and the price for not following them was a 'forceful regime change'

2. The Tehran Metro looks wonderful, however fighting every day people who are funded by a government based in Tehran, i am immediately pre-disposed to have a negative view.

3. 'Hagi' is army slang for 'islamic militant', or someone out to feed their bloodlust using the their religion as a crutch.

BTW if you look in my post i am trying my hardest to be positive, but Augusto you hit the nail on the head, its impossible to be subjective when its a country like Iran who openly threats me and my way of life. IT would be similar to have a discussion in your lovely country of France about the soviet subway system in the 60's, it may be wonderful, but its still part of the soviet union who is threatening you and your way of life, and no matter what the history is its hard to separate the country from the leader. AS Ive said, a majority of Iranians i meet outside on my patrol are great people, just like a majority of Iraqis i meet/talk to/work with on a daily basis are great people. Unfortunately the leader says things that are dumber than even our president and funds the militias that try and kill me every day. so im sorry if i came off as a jackass
