Holy sh*t! A major news network had the balls to send a journalist to Iran to see what life is like! Not surprisingly, Iran is vastly different from the terrorist regime that the American government has made the public fear that it is.
In the last video we listen to Matt Lauer and Iranian University professor Dr. Seyyed Marandi chit chat about I.R. What’s that? Dr. Marandi was born in Virginia and moved back to Iran after the revolution! Was this man kidnapped?! No! Guess life in Iran ain’t that bad after all. My girlfriend’s uncle and wife, who are both successful orthodontists in Tehran, came over to L.A. for several months to get their American citizenship lined up (much of their family lives is here). Southern California culture left them with such a bad taste in their mouths that they said to hell with it and went back to Tehran (I too can’t wait to leave this place). The typical American response to this is to say, well we don’t want’em here anyhow! To each his own, I guess. The point is, Iran is not a hotbed of terrorist organizations. Iran is a country that, like our own, is filled with people getting on with their own lives. You might say, well of course, but how many average Americans actually give this any thought or know anything about Iran? Not so much! These people are easily swayed by the fear campaign that the American government is currently running:
“Is it time to give you authority in pursuit of your mission in Iraq, to pursue those Iranian kutz force operations in Iranian territory in order to protect America’s troops in Iraq?” -Joe Lieberman, U.S. Senator and Israeli attache at the recent Senate hearings starring General Petraeus.
Ann Coulter anyone? “You have a lunatic running Iran, who’s running around claming he has a nuke. When do we wait? Do we wait for a city to be taken out?” (remember, the president of Iran does not “run” that country)
Consider a review like this one on YouTube:
“I hope they bomb the shit out of Iran. God bless Joe lieberman and God bless George W. Bush. Iran is fucking with the the greatest military force in the history of mankind. Who the hell are they? They bomb our soldiers we’ll bomb their cities. Im tired of putting up with these bastard’s bullshit!”
It should not be underestimated how it is in the interest of our national security for people in this country to educate themselves, and that takes an active search on part of the individual. Politicians have lied to us, the media has misinformed and uninformed us. It is not the information age, it is the misinformation age. Take the responsibility to learn something you don’t know, especially about people who are supposedly your enemies.
