U.S. Destroys Iranian Force

Islamic Republic fails to put up much of a fight

With four players scoring double-digits (and with the Minnesota Timberwolves’s Kevin Love stepping up for 13 points and 6 rebounds in only 11 minutes), the United States national basketball team crushed Iran’s 88-51 in the preliminary round of the 2010 FIBA World Championships, in Turkey. 33 of Iran’s 51 points were scored by just two players, Hamed Haddadi and Arsalan Kazemi, proving that just maybe the Islamic Republic’s main threats are located in a relatively small number of reachable places.

Especially since Israel did not qualify, I think it’s safe to say that Tablet Magazine’s official 2010 FIBA World Championships team just cruised to a 4-0 record and will play (and defeat) Tunisia tomorrow in the final game of the preliminary round. Make Kevin Love, not war!
