The Difference Between Tehran And Washington Is: Tehran Has The Balls To Own Its Mistakes

You all have probably heard about the passenger airliner which the Iranians shot down, then denied immediately after.

Fair enough. A terrible mistake which cost over a hundred people their lives. And the Iranians did initially lie about it.

However, consider the incredible pressure the Iranian military must have been under at the time, having just fired 22 missiles at US bases. Clearly, whoever fired that missile thought the plane was an enemy target. I don't think that can be questioned. But there is another important point here.

After three days the Iranians came clean. But the Americans NEVER came clean about the airliner they shot down two months after the 9/11 attacks. To this day they deny they did it.

It must be hard to be getting lessons in morality from Iran.

"A government investigation has ruled out terrorism but, five years on, many of the victims' relatives, pilots and at least one congressman remain unconvinced."

And the most suprising thing, the same Iranian citizens who shouted "death to America" also shouted "death to the Dictator" (referring to Khomeini).

The Iranian pyublic are not stupid nor shy. They despise dictatorship just as much as they despise imperialism and the desire to start a needless war. They are a people who want a number of things:

1. American withdrawal and no more interference in their lives by Western powers;

2. Peace

3. A self-determined country with a political system of their own choosing.

What they don't want is war; death; destruction; despotism; conflict; isolation; oppression. They are famously generous people and make the best hosts I have ever come across. And they are strong; resilient; educated; intelligent.

Far more than I can say for many Americans, frankly.

I have a lot of respect for Iranians. They are generally very nice people. Like the Canadians of the Middle East.

They are historically one of the most peaceful countries on the planet, which makes it even more perplexing when Americans buy into the hard right's sell that they are a threat.

Literally they have never instigated an act of war in their entire history since before the British Empire. Persians are not Arabs, but Muricans are often too dull to make distinctions like that. It seems like America has lost to ability to recognize nuance in ANYTHING.
