US Navy Hostages Iran

Iran to build a statue of captured US sailors

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is planning to build a statue of the US sailors who were captured in Iranian waters earlier this year, a senior officer said.

The provocative proposal is likely to cause outrage in the US and be seized on by Republicans opposed to President Barack Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

Commander Ali Fadavi, the head of the Guard’s naval forces, said the monument of the surrendering Americans would be a “tourist attraction”.

    Iran going to be dust.

    • All of the terror states should be dust.

        Just get somebody fairly prominent to announce they will start a movement to worship the statues on completion and the bright light shite who thought up this “joke on the Americans” will meet a slow painful demise at the hands of his fellow shites.
        A not too brite shite.

    It occurs to me that we should have a memorial statue of the scrawny stinking cadaver of ruholla khomeini being dragged out of his coffin, and having pieces torn off him by his hordes of fanatical devotees. We could surround it with newsreel images showing that is exactly what they did.

      The good stuff is getting more difficult to find on YouTube as time goes by.
      Guess the PC crowd think it is a bit too authentic for today’s precious snowflakes to cope with.

        It’s a copy write issue. Only progressives think they have the right to be that insane, irrational, and evil.

      That would be glorious. I’d pay good money to see that!

    • Art is beautiful.

      Yes, I remember seeing that in the news. Told me all I ever needed to know about Islam.

    They have lots of money now thanks to Obama. He probably suggested it.

    The Iranians are looking to get Donald Trump elected.

    • David Murrell

      The Iranians got Ronald Reagan elected in 1980.

        They DID!
        But they could not of accidently done (the Iranians are not deep thinkers) that had Carter not been so abjectly incompetent.

    Twenty bucks says they won’t build the female her statue. Reason: boobies.

    Make it large enough to be seen from 30,000 feet.

      “Approaching target point alpha. Set, set, Air burst 10,000 feet”, where’s Captain Kong?

    this statuary should be the focus of a concentrated cruise missile attack on the twelvers as they await their Messiah to climb out of a moldy well in aumm

  • And I would like a statue of the IDF soldier who nukes the ayatollahs.

  • Cat-astrophe

    Iranians are idiots if they make a statue commemorating this little incident.
    Oh, that reminds me, have they got that offensive chicken out of Cambridge University?

  • Kathy Prendergast

    Never fear; it would only take a small missile to turn it to dust.
