There are plenty of legitimate reasons for Iran to hate America - the Shah and the US’s unilateral withdrawal from the nuclear treaty, for example - but Covid-19 is not one of them. This is just sheer bull-headed stupidity on the Iranian government’s part, and will hurt their people even further. If only we could have an end to government by theocrats - not that they have a monopoly on stupidity.

Did Ayatollah consult with Allah -The all knowing first , or just joining CCP by using America as a scapegoat to avoid their negligence. How many more thousand deaths before their bell is ringing?

Ah yes, seems like he's wanting to board a ticket for the karma bus. I can't wait to get back to work tomorrow to chat with my Iranian co-worker. He LOVES talking about the political situations in Iran.

This particular conspiracy would require a level of planning that our government has never demonstrated. We can’t “purposely manipulate” ourselves into having test kits, masks, or toilet paper. Thanks for the kind thoughts, though.

Most leaders are dumb but definitely some leaders are more dumb than others. Japan accepted a kit from China of 12,000 testing kits.
