Iran:You see what you want to see

Iranian Truth shares his opinion about “The Bush Policy on Iran”. The blogger says Those who travel to Iran often see what the want to see and reject the multitude of diverse beliefs, particularly those which run counter to their own perspective. An Iranian-American who wants to believe that Iranians are pro-American for the most part will completely discount the elements of Iran which are clearly pro-Iranian government. Or those elements will be discounted as “foreign” to the country, when they’re really not. On the other hand, those who have an anti-American perspective, will view Iranians as being hostile to Americans, moreso then they really are.
