from The Wahington Post…

There's a factory in Iran making U.S. and Israeli flags.
They're for people to burn.


Destroying American and Israeli flags is a familiar ritual at state-sponsored rallies in Iran.

BURNING U.S. and Israeli flags is a familiar ritual at state-sponsored rallies in Iran. But in a country that is under U.S. and international sanctions and that bans contact with Israel, finding flags to burn can be a challenge.

The solution: a modest factory in Khomein City, southwest of Iran's capital, Tehran.

“We have no problem with the American and British people,” Ghasem Ghanjani, who owns the flag factory, told Reuters. “We have a problem with their governors. We have a problem with their presidents, with the wrong policy they have.”

“The people of America and Israel know that we have no problem with them,” he said. “If people burn the flags of these countries at different rallies, it is only to show their protest.”

Because of those protests, the factory does a robust business. At its busiest, it makes about 2,000 U.S. and Israeli flags a month. That's more than 1.5 million square feet of red, white and blue fabric to burn a year, according to Reuters.

The U.S. killing earlier this month of Major General Qasem Soleimani, the head of Iran's Quds Force, triggered a wave of instability across the region. Demonstrators burned U.S. and Israeli flags in the protests that followed. But after Tehran admitted to mistakenly downing a Ukraine International Airlines flight filled mostly with Iranians, anger on the streets turned in part toward the government. Images shared on social media showed people in public places intentionally stepping around American flags placed on the ground for trampling, in an apparent snub to Iranian state propaganda.

America is a waning superpower on the way out.

The dumbfucks haven't even woken up to it yet, but intelligent people elsewhere in the world can see it.

I guess the longer it takes stupid Americans to wake up to reality, the harder their fall is going to be.

We live in amusing & entertaining times.

The rest of the world KNOWS America has a total LIAR as their “fake president”.

A LIAR who is determined to shit on the rest of the world.

So when things turn bad for America, the rest of the world is going to turn their backs on America.

Donald J. Trump has fucked up his country completely in the eyes of the rest of the world.

Even his so-called mate Boris Johnson is laughing at him.

So it will be hahahahahahahahaha when America suddenly wakes up to the fact they are no longer the world's top-dog as their power wanes.

Do you know that the American government is now 10 trillion dollars in debt because of Trump's mismanagement?

All it will take will be for oil-producing nations to sell their oil for other currencies instead of the US dollar and the whole American rotten economic house of cards will collapse.

America is now the world's biggest PONZI scheme, presided over by a lying “fake president”.

Isn't that amusing, eh? SNIGGER!!!
