Arrogant US used to lecturing others: Iran

Iranís Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi says the United States has developed an overly strong habit of lecturing other countries despite its own well-documented abuse record.

"Youíre so used to lecturing others," Mousavi tweeted on Sunday.

The tweet was a response to an earlier one by a member of the Atlantic Council, a Washington-based international affairs think tank, against Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Barbara Slavin had taken on Zarif for critiquing those within the United States and elsewhere, who "donít think black lives matter."

"Fix your own country first. Weíll fix ours," Slavin told the Iranian top diplomat.

Mousavi told Slavin that is exactly what Zarif is asking US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to do.

Zarifís tweet had also incorporated a 2018 US State Department statement addressing rioting in Iran that was later found out to have been provoked by foreign, including American, services with subversive intentions. The Iranian foreign minister had ironically crossed out all references to Iran in that statement and replaced them with references to the United States to apparently indicate that Washingtonís criticism of others has to be directed against itself instead.

However, Washingtonís deep-seated habit of just telling others what to do and not tolerating criticism has made it feel "awkward to be reminded that YOU ‘should not be so arrogant as to tell Iran,í" Mousavi noted.

The exchanges came amid angry protests across the United States that have been prompted by a white police officerís recent choking to death of African American citizen George Floyd.

The murder involved the Minneapolis officer, Derek Chauvinís forcing the unarmed victim to the ground and planting his knee into his neck. Chauvin would not let up the pressure, although, Floyd was heard repeatedly pleading for his life.

The officers had been called to the scene -- a Cup Foodsí store on the 3700 block of Chicago Avenue South -- as the African American was reported to be attempting to use forged documents.

Police spokesperson John Elders claimed that Floyd had resisted arrest, and also alleged that he had started "going into medical distress" after the officers forced him into handcuffs. The viral footage, however, came to clearly disprove the account.

Mousavi reminded that the USís deadly abuse of its black community has been well documented as in the case of Floyd, whose murder was caught on a bystandersí camera. "Look at the graphics. Certainly you noticed that. Youíre íon firmer ground when it comes toí US," he told Slavin.
