'Great Satan' Sends 'Axis of Evil' Member Iran Aid
Early on Monday, an Air Force C-17 plane from Charleston landed at Kerman, about 100 miles northwest of Bam, carrying 68 medical experts and 40,000 pounds of blood and other medical supplies, the Pentagon's joint transportation command said in a statement.So, does someone at Reuters have either a sense of humor or a sense of irony...?
Over the weekend, other U.S. military planes ferried dozens more rescue and relief experts and tonnes more medical and humanitarian supplies into Iran from stocks in both the United States and Kuwait, the statement said.
It added that the planes were the first military aircraft to have landed in Iran since the end of the Iranian hostage crisis in 1981. A spokesman could not say how much the assistance was worth or whether there would be more airlifts.
Deputy State Department spokesman Adam Ereli told reporters the United States was prepared to send more aid if needed.
