Like they even have to ASK?!
I was just at cnn.com looking at the poll they have up there right now (this thread is time-sensitive, and the link won't have this particular poll up there forever)...
It says, "Would you consider taking a vacation in IRAN?"
What kind of abject MORON would you have to be to take a "vacation" in IRAN?!?!?!
You know, when I clicked my vote (obviously "NO"), I fully expected the breakdown to be like 99% NO, 1% yes, with a 1% margin of error... and I was shocked to see that it stands currently at 86% No to 14% Yes! Can you believe that?! Ugh.

There are actually supposed to be some really great places to ski in Iran....having said that.

Apparently there are over 8,000 abject morons’ that voted yes. I was not one of them. It's kind of like when the Israel’s started to bomb Beirut months ago and they had to get all those tourists out. I looked at my wife and said what kind of idiot vacations there?
DEMOCRACY IS TWO WOLVES AND A LAMB VOTING ON WHAT TO HAVE FOR LUNCH. LIBERTY IS A WELL ARMED LAMB CONtestING THE VOTE.

It coincides with this story. Which is hilarious.
On that note though, I'll keep my Jewish butt out of Iran.

Just call me picky on vacation destinations - but that is one of many on my ''not-to-do'' list

With tensions being what they are at the present time, I would have to say without a doubt, no.
Pending terrorism is quashed to little more than a nuisance, and a leader that is a little more reasonable, I would in fact go to Iran. Iraq as well. There are, from what I hear, some beautiful places in the middle east. India and Pakistan as well.

Sure I'd vacation there...I'd overfly it a few times, drop some "luggage" in the form of JDAMs and JSOWs....and my personal favorite, a couple of BLU-82s

So.... of the 14% that voted they would go there for a vacation.. I wonder how many were Persian.

The sad part is that these 14% people are also allowed to have driver's licenses, become parents, and vote in government elections.

Are they short on hostages?
Maybe they should set up a vacation package like Fantasy Island.

Hmm, I wouldn't wanna vacation there...I give the mideast plenty of my money at the gas pump already! Also, I want to stay out of harm's way, not 'rush in where angel's fear to tread!'
It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.
