Infantile Terrorism - Iran Labels U.S. Army "Terrorist Organization"

Just days after the U.S. Government moved to list Iran's Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization, Iranian parliament responded in a most childish fashion - by adding the Central Intelligence Agency and the United States Military to their own terrorist watch list.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran's parliament on Saturday approved a nonbinding resolution labeling the CIA and the U.S. Army "terrorist organizations," in apparent response to a Senate resolution seeking to give a similar designation to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The hard-line dominated parliament cited U.S. involvement in dropping nuclear bombs in Japan in World War II, using depleted uranium munitions in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq, supporting the killings of Palestinians by Israel, bombing and killing Iraqi civilians, and torturing terror suspects in prisons.
