Foreign views of America
I chose this article by the Tehran Times which is a Iranian article it also is significant as Iran is in what is previously known as 'The Axis of Evil'. This article is extremely anti-American as you can tell from the language in it. Comparing the deaths in the Afghanistan conflict to the holocaust which is an incredible comparison given the reason for being in Afghanistan.
There has been a lot of tension between Iran and the U.S. since the late 70's. It was greatly increased with the invasion of the middle east when Iraq and Afghanistan were invaded. Iran doesn't see the presence of the U.S. in the middle-east as a positive move as they see it as a western invasion of some sorts. There was alos tension with the Arab Spring which was greatly supported by the U.S. and feircly opposed by the Iranien government. America looked to push it's influence against Iran to its full as they believe they are making nuclear weapons which, America hypocritically has but fear foreign countries having them. It is clear within this article that they are against the war that America is involved in and by using statistics and strong language you are able to see how negative this article is to the U.S.
