Well, in Iraq you can publish a paper and criticize, heavily, the 
government and the government will not close the journal nor will jail 
the publisher and the journalists.
In Iran the jail is the better part of what would happen.

deprived of their fingernails or of their fingers, in a good day. In a 
bad they they would be shredded with the papers.

The shoe thrower would have never, ever, think to do the same with 
Mubarak or Saddam or Armadinejad because they would have him jailed 
forever or swiftly killed, and probably his family too would had many
