Lord Waddel, Khomeini's regime is capitalist. Look at Rafsanjani.

And the Shah was both Capitalist and authoritarian, although I feel many Iranisn underestimate his committment to helping Iran and Iranians pogress.
Try looking up a definition of capitalism. Import substitution and extensive limits on foreign investment is not capitalist by any stretch of the imagination.

Once again, go and look up a definition of capitalism. Khomenei and Khamenei have pursued statist economic policies, which are anathema to capitalism.

Neither does George Bush... and yet you would call him a staunch capitalist - no?
