As if capturing 10 American sailors, releasing photos of them crying, and mocking and repeatedly humiliating them wasn't enough already, the U.S.'s nuclear partner in "peace" has announced it plans to build a statue of the nine men and one woman captured in the Persian Gulf by Iran's Revolutionary Guard.
Iranian commander and naval head Ali Fadavi is quoted by The Telegraph about his country's newly planned "tourist attraction":
There are very many photographs of the major incident of arresting US Marines in the Persian Gulf in the media and we intend to build a symbol out of them inside one of our naval monuments.
No details were given of what the statue will actually look like, but most likely it will be of the American soldiers on their knees with their hands behind their backs as they were being held at gunpoint and robbed by the IRG -- an image Iran has repeatedly displayed for its own pleasure.
Not to worry, though: the Obama administration, led by the example of Secretary of State John Kerry, has bent over backwards to thank the Islamic country for treating our sailors so well and releasing them. Perhaps Kerry will ask for a copy of the statue to be sent to the president to put next to his busts of Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr. to round out the decor in the Oval Office.
Diplomacy, after all.
