BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:10 P.M.) – The Iranian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Tuesday that said it “time has come” to confront the U.S. policy of waging wars.

“Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of soldiers have been killed in wars caused by utilitarian rationality and the inexhaustible greed of American leaders,” they said in a tweet on their official Twitter page.

They added that “the mechanisms of the American war left nothing but massacres, destruction and brutality, and the time has come, coinciding with the commemoration of the millions of lives that have been lost, that the policies of violence and the fabrication of American wars be confronted.”

The Iranian Foreign Ministry’s tweet was posted on the occasion of “Memorial Day” in the United States, which is commemoration of those who lost their lives in the line of duty.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling

  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
