Iran is planning to build a series of statues to memorialize their capture of American sailors earlier this year, a senior officer said. The monument, to be built by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, would be a “tourist attraction” according to the head of the Guard’s naval forces, Commander Ali Fadavi.
“There are very many photographs of the major incident of arresting U.S. Marines in the Persian Gulf in the media and we intend to build a symbol out of them inside one of our naval monuments,” he told Iran’s Defense Press News Agency.
Iran, having already blatantly violated the terms of its “nuclear agreement” with the U.S. and U.N. via various missile launches/tests recently, seems to be searching in vain for some behavior, demand or action that might actually cause the Obama administration to say enough is enough.
If I were president, my new nuclear ‘agreement’ with Iran would be as follows: “You shut down your nuclear program, apologize to Israel, pay reparations to the American hostages (or their families) you held during the Carter presidency, stop sponsoring terror, and immediately abandon plans to build your “captured American sailor tourist attraction,” or we will wipe you off the face of the earth. Capisce?!”
But don’t worry. If we should do so…we’ll take pictures of the aftermath of this “major incident” and build a monument forever memorializing your misfortune.
