A REAL good Samaritan situation has happened between the most unlikely of countries: America and…Iran. America and Iran are not the best of friends. There is a TON of tension between us…so it would really confuse Iran if we did something nice for them. Well…we did.
So I bet it’s been a while since you’ve heard a good story about pirates…you may not have even known that they even still existed…well sure they don’t say “arrrrgh” anymore and they’ve ditched the peglegs, hook hands, eyepatches, and sails with skulls on them, but they still exist…
Some Somalian pirates captured 13 Iranians and was keeping them hostage. After about a month, the U.S.S. Kidd sailed up and rescued the Iranians from the ship after hearing a distress call. The U.S.S. Kidd…is an American Destroyer (don’t let the whole destroyer thing throw you off. I’m pretty sure they’re good people).
Did Iran thank us? Nah. Was the tension cleared? Nope. So what did Iran do. Well, they took their men back and shrugged it off…an Iranian broadcaster said that “we welcome such behavior”. It’s as if they’re saying “This is what you should’ve been doing all along as opposed to all the other crazy trouble you’ve been causing.” So what do we have to do to make Iran happy?! Why can’t all the countries just get along? Why does land have to belong to a country? Why can’t we all just share everything (without becoming one big nation)?
