Iran Press TV mocked the US today on Independence Day and accused America of losing its independence to foreign powers and the Zionists.
Arutz Sheva reported:

Iran ”celebrates” Independence Day in the United States by saying the US has lost independence to foreign creditors and, of course, Israel.

PRESS TV, totally funded by the Islamic Republic and a mouthpiece for the Islamic regime, told its readers, “America is no longer the land of the free. It is now ruled by oligarchs and corporatists. And it is no longer governed by the rule of law. The rich, the powerful and the politically connected abide by their own, very different, set of laws.”

Choosing choice quotes from various websites, PRESS TV took a sentence from the Miami Herald that stated, “This year, as the nation celebrates Independence Day, the sputtering U.S. economy offers a stark reminder that today the U.S. is more dependent upon foreigners than ever before.”

“The United States needs them to finance its debt: China and Japan together hold more than $2 trillion of U.S. Treasury bonds. It needs them to supply much of the oil that’s critical to U.S. economy.”

American-Israeli ties were cited by the Iranians as more evidence that the United States no longer is independent, and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) was noted for its “stranglehold on Congress.”
