general silliness, Iran, United States

I wouldn’t believe it in a novel…

Sometimes the irony is so obvious that it would be too hard to accept in fiction. Today, the CBC reports that the Iranian president’s request to lay a wreath at the site of the World Trade Center was denied and called a “photo op” by Zalmay Khalilzad, the US ambassador to the UN.

I mean can you imagine anyone low enough to use the grounds of the former WTC as a photo op?

No, I mean, really?

Added White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe “We will be the only sponsor of state terrorism and producer of weapons of mass destruction to lay a wreath here, so sod off! I mean, you must have your own shrines in Iranistan, why do you need to come and walk all around ours?”

  1. Yeah, in the late nineties and early in Bush’s presidency it was looking like Iran was the proverbial “beacon” the West has been looking for in the Mid East.

    Bush and his neo-con pals fixed that, though.
