Remember that good-Samaritan situation that went down between us (America) and Iran? If not, see the post titled “S.O.S please someone help m- wait…not YOU!”. Well America has seemed to do something else that, even if the tension was relieved, it would be back by now. So what did America do? Well…according to Iran news and articles and stuff (which could have blown the entire situation out of proportion) there’s an Iranian-born man working with the CIA named Amir Mirzaei Hekmati who was trying to use video games to brainwash Iranians. Amir says that he was hired by a game company called Kuma that is paid by the C.I.A to make games that have subliminal messages and other persuasive tactics in them (also known as brainwashing) to make middle easterners believe that the work America is doing there is, in fact, a good thing.
Amir has already been sentenced to death for spying (which it doesn’t seem he’s done.), so he hasn’t got much to lose…so Iran is pissed off again. Ugh…you would think America would think of a better solution than getting people to distribute brain-cleansing video games…you would think Iran would be a little more understanding…I don’t know. What do y’all think?
