Mythologies 2.0

June 25, 2009

One of the most truthful accounts I’ve come across about the realities of the Islamic Republic, the fallacies spun in the U.S., and the possibility of disastrous regional consequences based on those fictions. ‘While the protests are subsiding, days of round-the-clock, ill-informed commentary in the United States have helped to “sell” several dangerously misleading myths about Iranian politics. Left unchallenged, these myths will inexorably drive America’s Iran policy toward “regime change” — just as unchallenged myths about Saddam Hussein’s pursuit of nuclear weapons and ties to Al Qaeda paved the way for America’s invasion of Iraq in 2003.’ (Art from My Dead Pony.)
