[Watch] ‘Death To America’ Chant From Iranians Claiming Victory Over U.S.

Death to America Iran

One of the ways any opponent in a war seeks to defeat their enemy is psychologically.  By this measure, that aspect of the War on Terror we’ve been fighting is plain and simply lost in Iran.  Watch this short ABC report:

While a single column of people walking down a street is not an angry mob and does not give the entire picture, in the Middle East where symbolism trumps substance, this amounts to amazing resistance to western influence.  But, listen to what the translator says.

“A victory over the U.S.”  We haven’t even started to fight there.

“The Great Satan.”  Still haven’t figured that one out when we give more humanitarian aid around the world than anyone else.

“American policies are what is hated, not the people.”  Trying to sugarcoat the reality?  What these marchers don’t connect is that the American people are the ones putting the officials who make policy in office.   The policy makers, for all the reality that the people disagree with them, represent us to the world.

This is what we are up against in the War on Terror.  At least ABC is reporting it.  In the meantime, celebrate American culture here at home, by doing this very simple thing.
