Where Is the Love?

This story only confirms what I long suspected about the Iranian Majlis (parliament). They’re huge fans of the American hip hop group Black Eyed Peas, and have been influenced by the group’s 2003 top 10 single “Where Is the Love?“, a song which accuses the U.S. government of hypocrisy and contains the following lyrics:

“Overseas we tryin’ to stop terrorism, but we still got terrorists here livin’, in the U.S.A., the big CIA, the Bloods and the Crips and the KKK…”

Iran to label CIA, US Army terror groups

Iran’s parliament on Saturday approved a nonbinding resolution to label the CIA and the US Army “terrorist organizations.” The move is seen as a diplomatic tit-for-tat after the US Senate voted in favor of a resolution urging the State Department to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization.

“The aggressor US Army and the Central Intelligence Agency are terrorists and also nurture terror,” said a statement by the 215 lawmakers who signed the resolution at an open session of the Iranian parliament. The session was broadcast live on state-run radio.
