Poll Context: Iran’s Revolutionary Guard likely to cause outrage in US with plans to build a statue of 10 American Marines captured in January as a “tourist attraction”. The provocative proposal is likely to cause outrage in the US and be seized on by Republicans opposed to President Barack Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran. Commander Ali Fadavi, the head of the Guard’s naval forces, said the monument of the surrendering Americans would be a “tourist attraction”. “There are very many photographs of the major incident of arresting US Marines in the Persian Gulf in the media and we intend to build a symbol out of them inside one of our naval monuments,” he told Iran’s Defense Press news agency.
Now that Iran has its hands on over $100 billion agreed to by Obama and its nuclear deal, it appears to revel in disrespecting the US at every opportunity. AS Donald Trump said, “Those young people were on their hands and knees in a begging position with their hands up and thugs behind them with guns, and then we talk like it’s OK. It’s not OK. It’s lack of respect.”
