Iran sees the value in America separating families and locking children up in cages.
“Iran state TV no longer needs to broadcast slogans against America,” U.S.-Iranian journalist Borzou Daragahi noted. Now Tehran “just shows handout pictures distributed by U.S. [government] itself.” Those who live in free-press-less houses, of course, have no business throwing stones. But the Iranian government is surely not the only repressive regime delighted at this propagandistic own goal.
Why go through all of the trouble of making up fake propaganda to use against your enemies when the real story is so much better?
It’s just like handing them a giant public relationships gift all wrapped up with a little bow that says “America sucks.”
Can you think of another dictator of a country that traditionally hates the US who is also likely watching all of this and clutching his belly in laughter?
Oh, I bet you can if you try.
