There was a time when Iran was respected. December 30th, 1938 to be exact.
More importantly, if you disrespected Iran, there were consequences. By the way, please note how good Persia sounds in print.
Although this year we are correctly depicted by the Google animation metaphor:
"Iranians are like Rats, trapped in a hole in the ground, relegated to the occasional momentary grasp of any sort of happiness (A spring flower) that we can get our hands on. And then going back to sleep."
