Iran to U.S.: I’m Rubber, You’re Glue
Posted on Sep 30, 2007
The Iranian parliament has taken the I’m rubber, you’re glue approach to dealing with the U.S., labeling the United States Army and the CIA terrorist organizations, just days after Congress suggested the same designation for Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.
Iranian lawmakers cited the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the wars in Vietnam and Iraq, and Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and other “places of torture” to back up its claim.
“Iranian lawmakers ... labeled the American army and the country’s intelligence services (CIA) as terrorist,” IRNA said.
The statement came four days after the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill mandating sanctions on foreign energy companies doing business with Iran and urging the U.S. government to brand the Revolutionary Guards “terrorist”.
