Iran’s Leader Slams Seditionist Republican Letter


Congratulations Rep. Tom Cotton and the 46 seditionist Republicans for making America look even worse to our adversaries in the midst of sensitive talks regarding nuclear weapons.


Alan Colmes at Liberaland notes, “This is what happens when we look like buffoons to our adversaries.”

It’s not like we didn’t see this coming.

On Thursday, Iran’s supreme leader said that the letter signed by 47 Republican lawmakers warning that any nuclear deal could be undone by the next U.S. president is a sign of “disintegration” in Washington.

The New York Times reports:

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called the letter a sign of “the collapse of political ethics and the U.S. system’s internal disintegration,” according to the official IRNA news agency. It was the first reaction to the letter by Khamenei, who has the final say over all major policies.

Khamenei said states typically remain loyal to their commitments even if governments change, ” but American senators officially announced the commitment will be null and void after this government leaves office. Isn’t this the ultimate degree of the collapse of political ethics and the U.S. system’s internal disintegration?”

Khamenei said that whenever the talks approach a deadline, “the tone of the other party, particularly the Americans, becomes harsher, harder and more violent. This is part of their tricks and deceits.”

However, he said, “Iranian officials know what they are doing.”

Khamenei has generally supported the talks, but he frequently expresses doubt over the true intentions of the U.S. and other Western nations.

The supreme leader said a “Zionist clown” had delivered a speech in Washington, an apparent reference to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress earlier this month, in which he argued against the emerging agreement.

The U.S. along with five world powers are negotiating with Iran to try and reach an agreement this month and a final accord in July which would curb Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

Sanctions are crippling Iran and this negotiation could benefit everyone, but never mind all that because Netanyahu said so.

The Daily Banter reports:

Once upon a time, not only were Republicans open to nuclear agreements with archenemies, they actually signed them, as Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush did. Reagan’s approach was simple: “Trust, but verify.” Thirty years later, it’s a shame Republicans can’t follow his example.

Don’t be silly. This is not my mother’s Republican party. This is the ‘no’ and obstruct Obama at any cost party, with no new ideas.

Since the conspirators decided to undermine the President, the petition to file charges against the 47 Republicans has garnered 249,714 signatures in just a few days.
