It would appear that the Iranian government is stirring up a little bit of Ye Olde Anti-American Sentiments amongst its people again—Here's a "spontaneous" protest outside of the United Nations accusing the United States of "delaying" the process of rebuilding Shi'ite shrines in Iraq.
Of course, the Iranian government probably shouldn't be expected to inform its citizens that Iran had a hand in those bombings, but hey, that's okay:—Reuters doesn't think you need to know that, either.
I'll be rounding up pictures of this outrage du jour
following the break.Update:
Curses yet again! I haven't seen a string of Dick-Dastardlys
like this in a long while!
As J.C. has so helpfully pointed out, my statement above was incorrect
. My apologies for the mistake—and thanks for keeping me on my toes, JC! Yes, I do usually fact-check things before I post them, but as you can tell, things occasionally fall through.Update:
Just keep in mind that Iran definitely has a hand in the chaos of Iraq
. The extent of Iran's reach may be debatable, but they are definitely
there with the intent of harming us.
I'm going to be splitting these photos into two groups in observation of the fact that these "tolerant" protests are gender-segregated.
(Also known as "Women" in the civilised world.)
