Then again, lately I’ve just had Malibu’s nails trimmed by the vet when she’s in there for something else (like boarding).  That way, they’re the ones she bites, not me. :-)

Iran’s War On Dogs

shutterstock_296706074-998x661“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”  If that’s the case (and I’m inclined to believe that it is), what it says about Iran is not so good:

Iran’s War On Dogs

(Warning: there’s a rather nasty video (fortunately not on auto-play) near the top that shows just what kind of people (if we can call them that) we’re up against.)

On the eve of the Obama administration’s deal to pour $150 billion into the coffers of soon-to-be nuclear Iran, we should consider carefully the character of the government with which they have struck a bargain.

Iran has a government that mostly preaches death—death to Israel, death to America, death and more death. It also supports terrorism to kill Americans. So no one should be surprised at the major protests the deal has sparked, including the one headlined by Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz at the U.S. Capitol on September 9.

The ubiquity of beheadings and other horrific violence seems to have had a dangerous anesthetizing effect on all of us. So perhaps some Americans would better understand the sociopathic nature of the regime we’re promoting by getting a glimpse into its attitude on dogs. Its war on dogs.

This paragraph follows the video, which it describes:

Dejected and terrified, a stray dog whimpers as a man methodically injects her hindquarters with acid. The creature then writhes and shrieks in agony for interminable minutes. The animal is not dead yet when the executioner tosses her sobbing body onto a mass of carcasses. Next, a puppy is injected.

Nice doggie
