It's Just a Cultural Thing

The more information is acquired about the Middle Eastern region of Iran, the more apparent our differences become. While liberals would have you believe that our troops are disgruntled little boys eager to get out of their Iraqi quagmire (none of which is true), absolutely nothing could compare to the horrors committed against young Iranian boys under the Ayatollah Khomeini's rule. Mike McClellan gives us just a glimpse, citing a recent article at the New Republic.

During the Iran-Iraq War, the Ayatollah Khomeini imported 500,000 small plastic keys from Taiwan. The trinkets were meant to be inspirational. After Iraq invaded in September 1980, it had quickly become clear that Iran's forces were no match for Saddam Hussein's professional, well-armed military. To compensate for their disadvantage, Khomeini sent Iranian children, some as young as twelve years old, to the front lines. There, they marched in formation across minefields toward the enemy, clearing a path with their bodies. Before every mission, one of the Taiwanese keys would be hung around each child's neck. It was supposed to open the gates to paradise for them.

And I'm sure they're only increasing nuclear capabilities for greater energy for the Iranian ghettos.
