There seem to be some US citizens who’re getting quite irate about the possibility that the President of Iran, during his visit to the US, will be going to the site where the World Trade Center buildings used to be in order to lay a wreath and pay his respects.
In fact, one 82-year-old compares it to allowing Hitler to put a wreath on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier!.
I’m not sure why.
It’s not like he’s the president of Saudi Arabia – which is where most of the 11/9/2001 hijackers were from. Or that he’s the president of Lebanon, Egypt, or the UAE, which is where all the REST of the 11/09/2001 hijackers were from.
He’s not even a Sunni muslim – Iran is a Shi’ite nation. Those dudes HATE each other.
I really don’t see any reason for being pissed off at his visit that doesn’t basically boil down to a certain Them Ragheads Is Alla Same racism. A swarthy guy with a beard? At GROUND FUCKING ZERO? WHILE EAGLES CRY? THESE COLOURS DON’T RUN! ETC!
The whole thing just makes me sad.
