Even as the UN debates banning Dante Alighieri for saying mean things c. 1300 AD about Mohammed, an Iranian commander is announcing that the Great Satan must be destroyed. See how that works? The Daily Caller:

The head of Iran’s Basij paramilitary force says his country has no choice but to destroy America in order to build an ideal society.

In a video broadcast to Basij members on Feb. 26, Brig. Gen. Mohammad Reza Naqdi said the Islamic regime’s “independence and unhindered advance toward perfection is subject to removing the despotic powers and the Zionists,” referring to America and Israel.

“In every field in which the Islamic Republic of Iran tries to advance,” Naqdi said, “America is there to create obstacles for us. … When we want progress in science, they enforce sanctions and kill our scientists.”

Makes you just want to push the “reset button,” sometimes.
