Not like Americans would know the difference between Iraq and Iran themselves. lol
The majority of people know the difference since it's been at the forefront of news and politics this decade.
Maybe they're talking about the 1953 Coup D'état and subsequently the Iranian Revolution in 1979? It did cause a lot of damage in various ways.. I doubt that's what they meant though. Anyways, I like this topic. Most of the Japanese players I've fought actually put up a good fight, but like other areas, there are those who run away, use "cheap" strategies, and just suck.
