Numbers and Three Words: Why Not to Watch the Iran vs America Soccer Match, 11/29/2029


Wiki - 

On November 4, 1979, 52 United States diplomats and citizens were held hostage after a group of militarized Iranian college students belonging to the Muslim Student Followers of the Imam's Line, who supported the Iranian Revolution, took over the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and took them as hostages. 

The hostages were held for 444 days, being released on January 20, 1981.

The Three Words

"Death to America!"

Russia, China, and even North Korea don't have throngs of people in the street yelling for our demise.

But Iran does.

Russia may put one of our female basketball players in the clink for possession, but Iran kills women for not wearing a hat. 

Here in the US those 444 days and three little words are forgotten, left in the dustpan of history, never taught, and rarely discussed.  Meanwhile, Iranian school children are taught that November 4 is a regime holiday, "Student Day" celebrating the taking of the US Embassy in 1979.  

But you didn't know that, did you?

We don't want to offend, do we?  Enjoy the game.
