So what little girl wouldn’t want one of these?

Death to Satin Ameirica!

Iranians introduce phony Barbie doll to lure girls away from the real thing. This should prove as successful as France’s attempt to keep English out of their mush-mouth language.

    We have to give the French credit for banning that muslim veil from their country.

    It is scary when you go to Manhattan or even Norwalk and you see the muslim veiled women around. What the hell are they hiding underneath?

    Is that really a religious thing? or more importantly, are those veiled women really religious?

    and where did you hear that phrase “Satin America” ? I thought they call us infidels.

    My last trip to Iran in ’75, at the age of 5, was marked by my intense jealousy of my wealthy Iranian cousin who had so many more Barbies than I, from America, did. My childhood memories were of their beautifully modern house, white marble, 7-Up, a baby grand piano, a swimming pool, women in French fashion, luxury American and British cars. It was very Hollywood and very modern, at least in parts of Teheran. Sad how a once forward thinking middle eastern country has fallen backward in time.

    I can’t even imagine the squalor the vast majority of Iranians must have lived in 35 years ago, but it sounds as if your cousin must have had the Shah on speed-dial.

    No wonder there was a revolution (but how sad for your forward-thinking cousin).

    “…beautifully modern house, white marble, 7-Up, a baby grand piano, a swimming pool, women in French fashion, luxury American and British cars.”

    Other than the architectural genre (“mega-mansion” rather than “modern”), sounds somewhat like Round ‘Em Up Road.

    Squalor? I think not. There was great dignity in village life in Iran in the mid to late 2oth century, despite its simplicity. However, Tehran was a very modern city where one could work hard and enjoy the fruits of ones labour without having to apologise for having earned a few niceties.
