This rather comical report captures a glimpse of the Kurdish alcohol smuggling operation into the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The thirsty Iranian neighbours are buying over 200’000 litres of alcohol every day and spend more than 2.5 million dollars .
The Kurds are laughing: “The Mullahs like it most!” – I guess, humour and ridicule is often the only and best way to deal with hypocrisy in a repressive state.
