Magnanimous Iran creates work project

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

TEHRAN, (Xinhua): A senior Iranian military official said on Sunday the Islamic republic is digging some 320,000 graves in its border provinces for future slain invaders, Iran’s English-language satellite channel Press TV reported.

Iran’s Armed Forces headquarters has approved the plan to dig graves for enemy forces in case of any attack on its territory, said Brigadier General Mir-Faisal Baqerzadeh, head of the Foundation for the Remembrance of the Holy Defense.

“We do not wish the families of enemy soldiers to experience what Americans had to go through in the aftermath of the Vietnam War,” said Baqerzadeh, who is also head of Iran’s search committee for missing soldiers.

The preemptive measures would decrease the time during which slain soldiers would be buried, the Iranian military official said, adding “the burial of slain soldiers will be carried out decently and in little time.”

Baqerzadeh said the decision is in line with Iran’s commitment to the Geneva Convention and additional protocols regarding wartime cooperation between Iran and the Red Cross.
