The Pot Calling The Kettle Black

Iran is accusing the United States of interfering in their internal affairs, and is threatening to take the U.S. to court (I suppose the Worthless, er, World Court). I find that hillarious; Iran complaining about our interference! This is the country which exports terrorism like Latin American countries export bananas. They interfere constantly in other nation`s affairs! Where have all the Jihadists come from in Iraq? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

It does my heart good; perhaps we are doing more about Iran than it appears to the naked eye. I have always said Iran requires a Contra solution; send money, advisors, arms, etc. to Iran to foment a counter-revolution. It appears we are at least sending help to the dissident groups. We have been far too slow to react to Iran. We need to be far more assertive!

TEHRAN - Iran said Monday it plans to take legal action against the United States government for funding the Islamic republic's opposition forces.

"The American government has been allocating funds for interference in Iran's domestic affairs for years," government spokesman Abdollah Ramezanzadeh told reporters.

"Our country and the regime are stable enough not to be disturbed by such measures. However, such acts are against international norms and law. The foreign ministry will take necessary legal action" against Washington, he said.

Ramezanzadeh did not specify what sort of action.

According to the American press, three million dollars are to be allocated to "educational institutions, humanitarian groups, non-governmental organizations and individuals inside Iran to support the advancement of democracy and human rights".

Iran's ambassador to the United Nations, Mohammad Javad Zarif, on Sunday described the US plan as "a clear violation of the Algiers accords", which ended a hostage crisis at the American embassy in Tehran in 1980-1981.

The United States had agreed "not to intervene directly or indirectly, politically or militarily, in Iran's internal affairs".
