Vice Guide to Iran 4.5
UCn8zNIfYAQNdrFRrr8oibKw

Over the past weeks and months, Iran has descended into chaos. From the downing of a passenger jet to the assassination of a top general, and now one of the world's largest coronavirus outbreaks, life in the Islamic Republic is facing its toughest challenges since it was founded in 1979.

Just days before all hell broke loose, VICE founder Suroosh Alvi traveled to the country, meeting people from all walks of life: from hipsters to hostage-takers, and from top lawmakers to one of Iran's heaviest metal bands.

25:13 it was heartbreaking to see the upset that the US sanctions have caused this man who's just trying to earn a living. People seem to forget that behind the aggressive Iranian and American governments are real people who are suffering.

These guys interviewed the ex-head of an organization known for hating the US and rode a small boat into the straight of Hormuz. The absolute BALLS on these journalists, loving the new old Vice

That was awesome! Americans do not hate the Iranian people. Iranians don't hate Americans. But our government's would have us believe otherwise. We are smarter than that!
Thank you vice for this so desperately needed story❤️🌎❤️
