(Tehran) Amidst mounting geopolitical tensions, Iranian officials said Wednesday they were increasingly concerned about the United States of America’s uranium-enrichment program, fearing the Western nation may soon be capable of producing its 8,500th nuclear weapon.
My Commentary: Exactly! It’s a sad state of the world when more critical thinking comes from satire then from real news! Besides, how exactly does the United States government – the only nation to ever drop not one, but two nuclear weapons, on another nation’s civilians – manage to appoint itself as supreme dictator of who enriches uranium, and who hold nuclear weapons, anyway? The “logic” behind this is so hypocritical, it also comes off as satire!

Genaire: Sitting here listening to the only country in the world that has dropped not one, but two nuclear bombs on civilian cities discuss how other nations shouldn’t have these same weapons. Hypocrisy at its finest.
Rayn: American exceptionalism, at its worst.
Rayn: Remember this gem, from November 2012?
“It is perhaps the apex of hypocrisy that the United States, being the only nation to have ever actually used nuclear weapons against its enemy, has deemed itself the moral council on who can and cannot be trusted with ‘the bomb’.” (Artwork originally located here, upon the Facebook page, “The Anti-Media“)

“Condemns 12/14/12 Connecticut shooting: ‘Those who died today were children – beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. They had their entire lives ahead of them – birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.’ Orders drone strikes in Pakistan, which kill over 150 children. Offers no condolences.”
My Commentary: And, the Oscar goes to… (*drum roll*)
