Iranian President And The Media

The media has been all over the President of Iran and his visit. He has been called many things by many people. I am sure that some of the stuff he has been accused of are accurate, but please I thought we were above the name calling and making fun of some one's appearance. Apparently, I was mistaken.

I heard pundits on TV and read some of the criticism, like he is a buffoon, he is short, he is a horrible dresser, yada. But think about it people! There was another short guy, that the world thought was a buffoon and had this stupid little moustache. If I recall correctly, the world did not laugh for very long and he assisted in the deaths of a lot of people.

May I suggest that you take the man seriously, even though you may not like the guy, he is the leader of a country. By not taking him seriously the consequences could have long ranging problems for many many years.

Okay, the GA meeting, the US would not be seated while the Iranian president spoke. Why? Why act like a spoiled little turd? we may not agree with the man, but try to act like an adult. By not being there, the message is that we do not want to hear anything this man has to say. And that attitude will bite us in the butt, eventually.

The media has played its part well in the drama that the Bush Admin has orchestrated. They have attacked the Iranian president on many sides and done all they could to continue the presumption that he is somehow less than human. The American people have bought into the whole tabloid mentality in handling the Iranian president. A sad indictment of the mentality of the American people!
