Cultural Weapons of Mass Distraction

It is interesting how little effort may actually be needed to make an impact. The power in the weapon (Cultural Weapons of Mass Distraction) is implied in the comments made by the Iranian officials and clerics.

Official sees "destructive" Barbie influence
<snip> TEHRAN (Reuters) - Imports of Barbie dolls and other Western toys will have destructive cultural and social consequences in Iran, the Islamic Republic's top prosecutor was quoted as saying on Monday.</snip>

<snip>Najafabadi, a high-ranking cleric, said Iran was the world's third biggest importer of toys and suggested this posed a threat to the "personality and identity" of the new generation."The unrestrained entry of this sort of imported toys ... will bring destructive cultural and social consequences in their wake," he wrote.</snip>

Cultural Weapons of Mass Distraction are imported into Iran, with no apparent influence from the western governments. Even if there were western government influence, it would be hard for the majority of the UN membership nations to see any kind of toy give-away as a declaration of war. If I had any control over Western Europe, I would start funding a toys-to-the-middle-east program as long-term insurance from immigration.
