Anti-American billboards and displays are also popping up in Tehran. One features the iconic image of U.S. Marines raising the flag at Iwo Jima. Except in this image, the hands of the Marines are soaked in blood and instead of rocks, the troops stand on a pile of dead bodies.
Running-up to November 4, the Supreme Leader explained that the slogan “Death to America” is not aimed at the American people, just American policies. Feel better?
In promoting the recent nuclear agreement with Iran, Secretary Kerry and other Obama administration officials expressed the hope that the deal might signal the end of four decades of hostility between the Islamic Republic and the United States, setting the stage for further cooperation.
Now they have invited Iran to the table as the U.S. and other powers attempt to find a solution to the conflict in Syria.
But with the ink barely dry on the nuclear deal and talks on Syria just getting started, the Obama Administration’s hope of cooperation already looks even more delusional.
