Iranians are just like us UPDATE plus Video story from Daily ShowSubmitted by Brian Middleton on Thu, 12/01/2011 - 04:49
"In the mid-1970s, while training for submarine duty, I met Ali, an Iranian sailor. He was training for diesel submarines in the Iranian navy. Back then we sold our old diesel subs to the shah. He taught me you do not enter a man's home when the man is not home and his wife is. He taught me the words to Pink Floyd songs as he had just learned English and could understand every word. Ali made twice our pay. He had signed up for 20 years.
He hung around with American sailors. He was just like us. I respected him. One day Ali stopped coming around. I went to the Iranian barracks. They told me Ali was sent home to Iran because he hung around us too much.
I always wondered what happened to him. We should not bomb Iran. We might hit him or his family. Don't you get it? Iranians are just like us."
