Fars News (Iran): "Commander: Americans Exhausted with US Rulers' Oppressive Behavior"

If you want to know what's going on in the USA, the man to ask is Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi:
Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi underlined on Wednesday that growing protests in different parts of the US indicate that Americans are exhausted with the oppressive and tyrannical behaviors of their rulers.

"The huge popular moves which are held in pursuit of different incentives in the US everyday show that the US society is tired of the oppression and cruelty of the rulers of the country," Firouzabadi said.

He also reiterated that the Islamic awakening sweeping the Middle-Eastern and North African countries has enlightened the American people about Barack Obama's failures and delinquencies as well as the excessive attention he pays to the interests of few Zionist capital holders.

The United States is knee-deep in at least three international military conflicts at the moment - in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.

American lives are being lost. Innocent civilians are being killed. Several of the engagements appear to be primed for protraction. The wars are expensive in other ways, too.

At least since the stormy 1960s, whenever America got involved in deadly combat on foreign soil, large crowds of peace-promoting citizens have gathered in Washington and other cities to demonstrate against war.

It happened in 2007, when tens of thousands congregated on the National Mall and heard actors Sean Penn, Jane Fonda and Danny Glover speak out against President George W. Bush and the war in Iraq. [...]
In the immortal words of the Bonzo Dog Band, "Really wild, General!"
