Iran newspapers: The west planned the London Bombings
This is rather, ehh, typical: The Iranian media has been alleging that the London bombings were planned by the West to justify attacking Islam in the name of combating terrorism. [...] Kayhan paper says Britain and the US had to create an atmosphere of terror and insecurity in London so that the G8 leaders would endorse their belligerent policies like the occupation of Iraq. The paper's editorial called President Bush "stupid" and said he and Tony Blair would make a very successful comedy duo. While the Jumhuri Islami newspaper says the bombs were planned to give the west a reason to attack Islam under the fictitious cover of combating terrorism. It said creating problems for Muslims in Europe was also part of the plan. Ain't that nice? I am glad that the Iranians figured it out so quickly. I love it when they blame "The West", like it's a place with a unified ideology and objective. It doesn't make them look idiotic at all. But then again, what do you expect? They elected that guy!
