This Obama Humiliation Now Set in Stone

Remember when Iranian troops seized American troops on the eve of the State of the Union address and paraded them around like a trophy?  Our peace at all costs president explained that this was a rescue mission, not an act of aggression, and told us to be grateful, hoping we'd forget in a few months. For weeks, the Iranian regime shoved it in our faces, and we got to see the humiliation and terror suffered by our troops. 

The American people may have moved on, but Iran sure hasn't. The rogue nation is now making the Obama Administration look even more foolish; they're memorializing the capture in stone. As the Navy Times notes:

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps is reportedly planning to erect a statue commemorating its capture and brief detention of 10 U.S. Navy sailors who cut through Iranian waters in the Persian Gulf.

"The statue is likely to be built on Kharg, a small Iranian island in the Persian Gulf not far from where the sailors were captured," according to The Telegraph, which cited Fadari's comments to Iran's Defense Press news agency.

While Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has taken to Twitter to promote anti-U.S. sentiment since the American sailors' capture, the English-language account believed to belong to Khamenei hasn't made mention of the statue. The same goes for the unverified English accounts belonging to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohammad Javad Zarif.

This is another in a long line of foreign policy embarrassments for our woefully unqualified commander in chief.
