I'm a father who's read his son many a children's story in my life time. With this reference point, I was amazed and disturbed to hear a spokesman for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claim that the Iranian's government's proven involvement in an assassination plot to kill the Saudi Ambassador to the US in New York "a "child's story" meant to distract Americans" (links here and here).
A child's story? Seriously? Is that how children in Iran are raised, put to bed, intrigued... with stories of conspiracy with Mexican drug cartels, being monitored by the DEA, and plotting to explode a diner while the Ambassador ate there (probably killing lots of people who were not the Ambassador)? Is this what goes for a "child's story" in Iran? Sick, twisted, bizarre. I do not understand the current state of leadership in Persia today.
