Our Constitution, and Iran's

Here's the opening paragraph of our Constitution:
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Here’s what Iran’s constitution says:
“The Assembly of Experts for Constitution…fram[ed]
the Constitution…[after input] by the government…with the hope that
this century will witness the establishment of a universal holy
government and the downfall of all others.
Virtually the same, right?  Oh, well, maybe not quite.

Or not even close.  But they're just swell folks all the way round.  Sure, they hang gays from construction cranes in downtown Tehran, but that's just a minor policy quibble.  So trust us, you can trust the government of Iran to do exactly...what their constitution says.
