This story is about how the Iranian currency, the rial, has lost four fifths of its value in the past year. While that has many portents what caught my eye was this…
“They spend billions of dollars to keep Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in power, but now they say they have no money!,” one garment seller screamed as he was cheered on by others, witnesses reported. A team from Iran’s state television was nearly attacked when its reporter turned to the camera saying that the people behind him had been upset over a robbery.”
Iran’s state run media was on the scene toeing the regimes propaganda to hide the truth from the rest of the nation.
Not that much different from Obama State run media.
