The Ottawa Sun carried an Associated Press story today reporting that if Israel or the United States attacked, Iran would retaliate. The headline writer should be fired. Here’s what the stupid warmongering idiot put atop the piece: Iran Threatens Israel. This sub-head came about half way through: Can’t be Trusted.
Here are some relevant quotes from the story, and a more relevant explanation as to why such comments were made:
"Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari is quoted in the conservative Jam-e-Jam newspaper as saying Iran would respond to such an attack with a barrage of missiles against Israel.
Jafari also threatened to choke off the strategic Strait of Hormuz, a narrow outlet for tankers leaving the Persian Gulf through which 60% of the world’s oil for export moves.
His remarks yesterday follow the recent disclosure of a large Israeli military exercise over the Mediterranean Sea that was seen as sending a message to Iran to curb its nuclear ambitions."
The correct headline to this story should read: Israel Threatens Iran.
