Ladies and Gentlemen, one of the great ironic statements of all time

Map of Iran (source: CIA World Factbook)

Oh one does love international diplomacy condensed into one paragraph:

Iran‘s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has lashed out at the “Great Satan” America before new nuclear talks began on Thursday, saying recent negotiations had exposed Washington’s hostility towards his country.

Nothing is more productive than calling someone the “Great Satan” and then complaining the other side is too hostile.

And yet, as is so often the case, the over-the-top rhetoric comes with some truth that we over here in Greater Satania will no doubt fail to reflect upon.

US senators are planning to introduce legislation that imposes new sanction on Iran as soon as this week, according to Reuters Thursday.
Senators Robert Menendez and Mark Kirk are finalizing the legislation that could effectively terminate the historic interim nuclear deal signed between Iran and six world powers in late November.

As always the diligent efforts of the politicians will be necessary to keep peace from breaking out.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
