Headline of the day

Iran labels CIA 'terrorist organization'

Iran's parliament on Saturday approved a nonbinding resolution labeling the CIA and the U.S. Army "terrorist organizations," in apparent response to a Senate resolution seeking to give a similar designation to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The hard-line dominated parliament cited U.S. involvement in dropping nuclear bombs in Japan in World War II, using depleted uranium munitions in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq, supporting the killings of Palestinians by Israel, bombing and killing Iraqi civilians, and torturing terror suspects in prisons.
This particular article is an AP article, but I saw the story earlier today on something I just discovered called Press TV, which appears to be a sort of "Iranian al-Jazeerah." Their goals:
1- To break the global media stranglehold of western outlets.
2- To bridge cultural divisions pragmatically.
3- To highlight the versatility and vitality of political and cultural differences, making up the human condition.
Sounds good to me. They actually broadcast streaming video online, but I couldn't get it to work myself (didn't put that much effort into it).
