23. But not as fucked as they are.
We might have crappy PR, but we're used to that, just as the Iranians (who would die in large numbers, although it is debatable whether the numbers would be as high as those of the current executions) are used to their government blaming the US and Israel for absolutely everything. At this point, it's pretty much white noise.
