A glimpse into future: Pro-Iran, anti-U.S. rhetoric

Reuters reports:
A secret U.S. plan to attack Chinese nuclear weapons sites more than four decades ago prompted Mao Zedong to temporarily abandon efforts to improve living standards, Xinhua news agency reported on Tuesday.

Hmm. Interesting article and interesting timing from Xinhua. Something tells me that we're about to see some new anti-U.S. rhetoric as it pertains to Iran's nuclear program. Expect to see a lot of people blaming our efforts to forestall a nuclear Iran for piss poor living conditions in Iran. Expect a lot of people to ignore the fact that responsibility for poor living conditions still rests squarely with the Iranian leadership (and previously, with Mao's).
