It's funny.

The brainwashing goes on in both countries.
I remember reading an article once on how some american students visited Iran.
They met other students from Iran and the Iranians were amazed we weren't all devils that wanted to kill them.

It's great to see images like this that shows how regular people just want peace.


I've read that very same article! They said the Iranians were lovely people in a beautiful country.

what and you thought they were all bad?

I am sorry to say guys, I know the majority of you are US people (and it is not your fault) but the US government and media is one f***d up organization (working together) you got there!
Have you seen how the media portraits Russians as the mafia people? the Chinese as the mafia kung fu and slightly stupid people? The Latino are always part of a gang, listen to hip hop and are definitely stupid and lazy, the English are always rude and stuck up to themselves, the Arabs are always some evil people who want to plot something against the good US people but never do it quite right because at the end of the day, they are also stupid.

I hate this hollywood movies. The Latino people you see in the US and Canada are completely different to the people living outside of US and Canada. Always portrait as lazy and because of this movies stereotypes, people know completely believe this is the reality! Unfortunately what drives US consciousness is TV and its shows and its manipulative messages. Maybe not everyone falls for this but unfortunately,

YOU WILL NEVER see a movie where the US is the bad person. NEVER!

Of course some Iranians, Turkish, Arzebaijanis, Pakistanis, Martians would be nice and maybe others not so nice, others a bit nicer and some other a bit more rude. Its call being a HUMAN BEING!

I have met a lot of Iranians and they all tend to be extremely respectful, very well behave. I have also met Saudis, lots of them and they are all very nice as well. Their sense of humor is not my favorite (I find it a bit harsh!) but hey! Thats cultural.

It’s a real shame for the world that war is just so profitable. Where’s there’s profit to be made, they’ll always be those to exploit it with no care nor consideration of who is affect or who gets hurt... As long as they’re happy making/stealing millions or billions or even trillions of dollars. The funny thing about wealth though, you can’t spend it when you’re dead. Why be the richest man in the cemetery at the expense of so many innocent people?

I share something with you. I asked a Saudi woman (I don't come here and speculate I actually approach people and ask them!) why don't you guys drive in Saudi? and she said because women in Saudi are way to intense and crazy (which I completely believe)
She said: "You see women even hitting their husbands (believe it or not and its not good also!) in the streets because of stupid things, can you imagine them driving? It would be absolutely crazy in the streets"
Besides she said: "Drivers are very cheap in Saudi Arabia, why would I want to drive if someone can drive me whenever and wherever I want?"

Well there you go, sometimes it is as simple as that. Women already are a massive part of university students in Saudi and are getting more and more involved in the society but for us driving would be important, for them not so much.

Great pic, but I bet the conversation went more like.......................

United States athlete asks - "Hey man, why do you Iranians need a nuclear bomb ?"
Iranian athlete replies - "When you can tell me why you need to let off over 1000 nuclear bombs, 2 of which used on civillians, then you will understand why we need at least one nuclear bomb !".

But as I said, great pic !



Great pic indeed.

yep so true, but this inconvenient truth seems to be ignored mostly, and Iran is will be accused of potentially supplying terrorists with these bombs. Makes me


Anyhow, I worked at the Sydney 2000 Olympics ( I know pre 911 - who cares ) in the Athletes Villiage and had the opportunity to see & speak to many people. It was so good to see everyone just getting along - you know being normal humans - everyone swapping country tops/tshirts and memorabilia - no barriers, no war machine - no color. That is what made the Olympics for me, not watching sports.

I think if you have travelled to a foreign country you soon realise the BS that is fed to you by MSM, your education institutions, your government, your ignorant co workers/friends/family that have not travelled.

Get a passport & get out there - the world & your brothers & sisters are waiting to meet you. Be smart & safe.

Oh.. I don't buy it. Let's see it.

Even if there was a picture and it did appear the way you say anyone with any knowledge whatsoever knows that the Iranian people don't dislike Americans. They aren't really any different honestly.

Except whereas we are brainwashed into thinking we have targets painted on our backs by muslims that don't have the weapons to harm us, they actually are living with a target on them because the most powerful country in the world and it's lacky (not sure which is which) are aiming tons of bombs at them.

Iranians don't really hate Americans, some do, but the majority don't.

The USA has supplied weapons to what some countries consider terrorists but that is okay by you right?

Thank you so much for sharing this. It is a moment and a message beautifully captured. Would you also post a link to who first published or photographed this please? Thanks in advance, it is much appreciated.

It's not only athletes who benefit from maintaining balance - our world community could too, perhaps.

Thanks again for sharing this 1,000+ words story.Well done.

even though they are probably related or something, this is very good to see. Sportsmanship.

the olympics meant less than nothing to me. the supposed olympic spirit is nothing more than a corporate wet dream. normal service will resume.

It would be wonderful to have competitions to settle differences rather than kill each other, which is very barbaric. You know if it were competitions like the olympics that are physical, or scientific endeavors that are not for killing, we'd do nothing but better ourselves.
