  1. You mean to tell me the country that we used as a bombing range for almost 40 years just put up billboards saying they hate us?

    Color me shocked.

  2. As I brace myself for downvoting, please consider the following:

    I do not know for sure if the billboard shown in the picture thumbnail is in fact the same as the billboards mentioned in the article.

    However, I have read the Arabic text in the billboard and it literary reads as follows:

    “America is the reason for instability and insecurity in the region.

    For supporting the zionist occupation and terror groups.”

    I do not see any finer/smaller texts on the billboard stating anything else.

  3. Can we consider that America giving Israel the green light to bomb Iraq a week ago might not have been in America’s long-term best interests? The last time somebody bombed the US we lost our collective shit for 2 decades and counting.

  4. Winning all the hearts and minds. /s

  5. But but but why do they hate us so much?!?

  6. No, we don’t need to start a war because some idiots put up some dumbass signs.

  7. How is this different from US’ stance against Iran?

    They just say it in a more palatable indirect manner and don’t place it on billboards.

  8. >The U.S. is responsible for the region’s insecurity and instability because it supports the Zionist occupation and terrorist groups

    America has given billions of dollars of aid to the right wing Israeli government which plans on annexing the West Bank and also gives billions of dollars in weapons to Saudi Arabia which funds terrorist groups across the Middle East. So what’s the lie?

  9. Classic Iranian slogan. Don’t know what we were expecting when we took out Saddam

  10. Their advertising agency should broaden the campaign and put this on the back of milk cartons as well.

  11. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.cbsnews.com/news/death-to-america-billboards-pop-up-in-baghdad-its-a-message-from-iran/) reduced by 91%. (I’m a bot)

  12. I mean all the crap the current admin and past administration of this country has done…we have never put “death to iraq” or “death to Muslims” on billboards or made it open policy. Why is it such a Middle East thing to say “death to _____”

  13. I’m surprised this is even news. I would have been more suprised there wasn’t slogans like this all over a country in shambles because to these ones.

  14. Is that near George Bush square?

  15. Israel has been bombing Iraq for a while, this shouldn’t be surprising.

  16. Someone should probably let them know thats hate speech.

  17. First you got to prove that they ever disappeared. The US went it and destroyed lives..does an average American really believe that there will be signs saying “ god bless America”..again, you got to first prove that signs had ever disappeared since the day illegal invasion of Iraq happened where war crimes were performed by little Bush. The US has created a lifelong hatred in the heart of Iraq and now it is all of a sudden baffled that there are signs expressing the hatred?

    If you are reading this article and are shocked, scared, or dumb founded by there signs then you were a dumbass to begin with.

  18. This is Trump’s fault. The USA was beloved worldwide under Obama.

  19. Ah yes who could forget Israel invading and declaring war (until this day) with iraq at 1948, and sending ~18,000 men, tanks and armoured vehicles to iraq.

    Oh ! and let us not forget in 1967 they sent 30,000 men, 250–500 tanks, and 700 APCs again to iraq !

    And of course the infamous 42 ballistic missiles israel launched towards population centers in iraq in 1991.

    And recently Israel is hosting terror groups with the aim of attacking Iran with ballistic missiles in case needed and said so by the USA.

    Whoops I meant Iraq did all of that ! silly me… but fuck the Jewish nation they deserve it because of **their** actions amiright ?
