Iran to build a statue of the captured US sailors who strayed into its waters as TOURIST ATTRACTION

I suppose the Iranian government doesn’t have much to celebrate if they’re considering building a statue of the captured US sailors who were held for no reason for 16 hours. This wasn’t a monumental or purposeful capture, and it will be an equally pointless statue.

captured soldiers‘There are very many photographs of the major incident of arresting US Marines in the Persian Gulf in the media and we intend to build a symbol out of them inside one of our naval monuments,’ he told Iran’s Defense Press news agency.

What’s sad is that Iran considers this a naval monument. I thought monuments were to symbolize an actual accomplishment or something important? Building a statue of this as a tourist attraction is extremely pointless.
