Iran is one of the first countries of it's faith to allow women to vote, drive, work outside the home, etc. It's a very modern country. Most women, you will notice, just wear scarves on their heads and conservative clothing in Iran. Such a shame about Bourdain, tho...God bless his soul.

"Death to America" is akin to "long live the King" or "Queen" or applauding comrade Stalin or Mao or Kim or Putin or Obama or Trimp for their prowess!!! You say it because you are being watch but you say it without much conviction!!!!

I'm glad this liberal puke is dead! woohoo! one less lib. Iran has some of the worst human rights there is. They are ruled by those baby raping goat loving religious freaks. The Iranian youth are going to overtake the government with the help of Trump. The Iranian people are awesome. They come to America and party their asses off before they have to go home... lots of fun! I love Iranians and their food is the best. For the monkeys that rule the government, death to them. They are enemies to the USA and they will fall very soon.

Dane Hartwell- What kind of a miserable excuse for a human are you? " You are glad a person is dead, why? because you didn't like his opinions?, God there is no hope for the US if all their young are anything like you. Trump will not go near Iran if he knows whats good for him. Get yourself an education and stop using ridiculous phrases like "baby raping goat loving religious freaks" makes you sound even dumber than you obviously are. Iranian leaders are enemies of the US , Why?

Dear CNN, I beg that you release all seasons of Parts Unknown for free in full on YouTube. It will those few of us blessed with this man's talent in opening up our eyes to a wider world of culture, tradition, and in turn shrinking it in turn by showing and sharing the common experiences across the globe, and our common and united interest and love we have in sharing our food and drink. This would be an apt tribute to Tony, and a gift upon the wider community and citizens of this planet who have not yet been blessed by the education and perspective this man has given us lucky few who have watched this amazing series. RIP Tony, may you seek the light you were searching for, while we keep in memory the flame of your presence.

Americans have been bamboozled by their media about Iran because of foreign policy and national security matters. Ordinary Iranians are people with the same universal desire for peace, happiness, family, god, stability. It was the CIA that staged the coup that toppled a democratically elected leader in 1953 and put in place a America friendly King aka Shah that enraged the people.

Iranians are Shia, the fake Islam which actually branches off from true Sunni Islam. B) The people are forced to be Muslim but are undercover atheists, Or other religions like my own family C) Iranian culture extremely clashes with Islam. So please don't state Iranian people are their forcefully installed government. We hate Islam. We hate our government.

+susumu07 Exactly PREACH! Americans think they're "FREE" When in reality there not free it's the same trash Republican Democrat there both bought by AIPAC and corrupt.They spend Trillions on Military and Congress cares about filling their pockets and making deals with Billionaires while the American people suffer! Just look at the "Bailout" lol the people (Bankers) who were responsible for this never got charged with anything they walk free while the Taxpayers Bail them out! At least in Iran a Billionaire goes to jail for corruption maybe America should take something from Iran. In every country there is going to be corruption some less then others.
12dollarsand78cents (2 years ago)
+susumu07 Only thing I agree with you on, is that the political system in the US, needs at least one more choice. Three or 4 large political parties would give us more choice. I hope the people in Iran will gain more power on what goes on in their country too. Not a clone of the US, maybe something new and better for all people there. It might take time. Nothing drastic, just improving for all. If I could give you any advice to not sound so much like the Iranian propaganda tool, I would describe some of what you claim, in more detail.

I've met some Iranian people here in Australia and they were probably the friendliest, honest, open people i've ever met. Granted they were all very intelligent well educated professional people, but that aside they were so welcoming and it was genuine, there wasn't nothing false about it. My friend went to Iraq just before the war trying to do the human shield thing (which Bush etc cared zero about) and the footage he took of Baghdad 1 week before the invasion was amazing, every single person was friendly and inviting him to their homes and shops for food and tea and he was an American. I was stunned at the maturity of the people, they realize it's not the people of America, but their infiltrated and corrupted government
Haku Kuze (3 years ago)
"Surprisingly shockingly outgoing and generous".  LOL.  Anthony, they've always been that way, the media just fails to show you that.  This is a perfect example of mass brain washing that goes on here against countries whose political standing is not aligned with ours.  People are not their government and the only way to find this out is do what you did.  Visit the darn place and lift the shades of mass media.  Good on you bud.

Nuclear weapons are strategically unimportant for Iran. Iran"s only enemy in the world is Israel because of israeli led sanctions..(iran hate saudi kings, not the saudi people caz half of them are shias and migrant workers) if Iran attack Telaviv even for retaliation, nuclear material will spread to west bank Palastine (50km from Telaviv) and shia-lebanon (100km from telaviv) and syria . that means nukes will kill atleast 30 million muslims and 6 million jews. Iran,Israel.USA, CNN, BBC,PRESSTV. all know that. iranian nuke are just western fear mongering propaganda. thats the reason Iran does NOT make nukes. but israeli nukes can kill iranians, and Iran will spare their 1 million missiles and rockets on little israel. and Israel and Iran will disappear to middle ages. Nukes are counter weights, USA----- china,russia. China----usa, russia, india (west,south) Russia-- Usa, china, Nato(west) India ---  China(east). not pakistan, it is too closer. Pakistan-- India( far south) Uk ---- none, possibly old soviet union. France---- none. possibly old soviet union. Israel --- none.  possibly west africa, Southern Arabia, Iran. Iran ----- strategically none. US is too far even for retaliation attack. and no intelligent Military will attack US mainland.

To some extent true, but he only touches the surface! Partly he refers to the rich part of society. They have the advantage to be able to reduce burdens of oppression. And the women and liberalism? Yes ... however they tend to be veeery materialistic (nothing that Americans are unfamiliar with). Otherwise, you can find good food and friendly people everywhere. But then what is the big deal? You find those things in several countries! The big deal is that Americans created this phobia of Iran for themselves, and now they are suprised themselves when faced with truth :)

Please listen to the man, you might just learn something.  If you stop being bigoted for just a moment you'll realize that Iranians respect the rest of the world and are not responsible for their thuggish governments actions no more than any other country's people  should be -which by the way, harms Iranians more than it does anyone else!  Iranians and Kurdish peoples like and respect Jews, Americans, and just about anyone who treats us with respect!  No matter what people say, no one can change the fact that Iran was one of the worlds first empires and greatest civilizations.
