And with a regime change and a name change in Iraq, what better time than now for Iran to make an equally advantageous transformation, reverting to its traditional and more mellifluous name, Persia. It would correct several inconsistencies in nomenclature. Who wants an Iranian cat, an Iranian rug, or an Iranian lamb coat? But a Persian one? Of course. (And if the super-glamorous Persian Room ever re-opens at The Plaza, you can bet they won't call it The Iranian Room.)

+++The United States should be renamed too while we're at it...given back to its own indigenous people...how about "Cherokee Nation". And why not change Israel back to Plaestine?
+++As you look at American society...you marvel at how stupid the rest of the world must be to not want "our way of life". Let's just call the earth America and be done with it.
+++Funny how you can justify anything if you own enough media outlets.
