  •  Awesome quote from Iranian government: (0+ / 0-)

    A senior aide to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei:

    "Those who believe that, by developing insecurity in the countries of the region by sending arms and exporting terrorism, they are buying security for themselves are wrong," Iran's official IRNA news agency quoted him as telling Adnan Mansour, Lebanon's foreign minister.
    OK, first of all, we have a top-level official of the government that sends rocketry and other weapons to Hezbollah and the Syrian government - and which does so for the purpose of strengthening their regional sway - saying that sending arms and exporting terrorism is a bad strategy.

    But just to make the irony especially awesome, he says this to whom?  To the Lebanese Foreign Minister.

    Ooh, please Mr. Iranian diplomat, tell me more about the problem with exporting arms and terrorism as a security strategy!

    Art is the handmaid of human good.
