  • it seems like iran has always been the big bad

  • but when it comes to north korea everyone's like on

  • that they have nuclear weapons and a continued chance then

  • but no one cares right so there's there's a little bit of a acting when it

  • comes to some politicians they pretend to be a little concerned but when it

  • comes to americans in general week i don't make fun of north korea out we

  • don't really see that as a real threat at least not the moment but with iran

  • there's always the sense of urgency all my doctor building nuclear weapons we

  • have to do something called i got the uranium we gotta do something

  • immediately

  • so why

  • is back in the atlantic did the job breaking this down and i just cannot

  • wait to discuss this

  • so i just give you guys are uh... some specific examples of

  • how american politicians speak out about iran but don't care much about north

  • korea

  • in defense secretary timetables

  • full-day confirmation hearing before the senate armed services committee but

  • working robs mention one and one hundred seventy times

  • north transmission ten times

  • now remember iraq doesn't have nuclear weapons yet yeah north korean dots now

  • of course that nuclear weapons that they have or their nuclear capabilities and

  • all that impressive at the moment hubble we know that

  • they have something that writing their back to me brand but they do have them

  • they do not have exactly i'm part of the problem

  • underwent distribuidora for it

  • double legacy firstly as the the tensions between us and and uh... in

  • north korea also between north korea south korean all that from the ratchet

  • up in the past few weeks let me know

  • at least of if read it is representative but it's just it's just jokes like he

  • did on the main show couple days ago you did the picture of uh...

  • uh... pins on uh...

  • your own with the the pig nose and everything like yes it just seems so

  • easy to market

  • and it's because their culture is a little bit more foreign obviously

  • they're their leaders are fit in such a different position than that they have a

  • rich person it's easy to mark the lights also before we get into like asian

  • stereotypes because that's actually part of this and i knew that it would be part

  • of this let's discuss uh...

  • here's some of the real issues with the wind

  • love this explanation thing it's the best one so far with iran you'll have

  • religious martyrs right so when you talk about nuclear war

  • a lot of countries that have nuclear weapons will not engage in nuclear war

  • because they know that that will be the demise of their own country

  • offer instead of someone tax the united states of the nuclear weapon when you

  • think the united states is going to bring in attacking you

  • which our nuclear weapons so what you're on there more religious martyrs that

  • might be

  • willing to die in the name of the original in the name of their country

  • with north korea they care much more about their state

  • as opposed to anything else or or making sure to preserve their stay

  • and you all know that there are three has been threatening us for a very long

  • time this is not some new development

  • so i love that explanation but then they also i kind of delved into on

  • stereotypes so when it comes to moslems of course the stereotype is they're more

  • danger as al you know that there is a

  • and bill engaging riskier behavior whereas with occasions there seem isn't

  • seen as worked in a and people don't generally think of them as a threat

  • about sacred belief that by any way shape or form but you know that's

  • just in general thinking behind it and i thought was interesting headed to some

  • extent that's reflected in in popular culture like you see that who's the bad

  • guy in the action movies changes over time infor

  • herb the last fifteen years or so it's usually been muslims of some stripper

  • data from one country doesn't matter which

  • sometimes they're made up countries they will typically be the villain whereas

  • north korea like they were one of the bond movies like it never dipping down

  • that and i don't know if that causes some of what leads to us to fear around

  • more than north korea or if it's simply a reflection of it

  • but that's going on to the popular culture

  • and also you know i keep in mind that we have the influence of israel israel is

  • that you know very much willie are n_b_c_ claim that they're willing to

  • that

  • anti-tax iran if they do see iran is a threat and how many times as net neon

  • set

  • we're going to go in with an attack iran

  • so that kind of makes the situation in iran a lot

  • shakir

  • uh... but another thing is and i i didn't know this story to recently

  • north korea out that the state media north korea had reported that they found

  • a unicorn lair

  • uncovered that look if you're probably the first hour but if your

  • it's telling your people that you discovered a unicorn layer

  • you know if you're threatening us with nuclear weapons newman's contingency

  • ears i don't even know if that's the craziest thing like he's only ever board

  • three hundred any invented oral sex like there's a lot of crazy things that you

  • know they do but if you're in for you

  • but i think that you did touch on the biggest one like they've been listening

  • this atlantic p several reasons that we fear run more than north korea but i

  • think they israel's the most important part

  • visiting like cuba real the average american who does not care much about

  • any country in the world cares about america and israel and in both of these

  • cases the country that we could potentially fear has a hostage to some

  • extent iran has israel's hostage north korea even more directly as south korea

  • as a hostage and that the average american for whatever reason just does

  • not feel any connection to south korea for some raised the specter in in at

  • incredible growth of u_n_ job christianity in south korea recently

  • uh... i think that they just care more about israel

it seems like iran has always been the big bad
