Iranian general: Obama’s threats are ‘the joke of the year’ (also calls Obama "Low-IQ")
Times of Israel ^ | March 4, 2014, 9:34 pm | Marissa Newman

Masoud Jazayeri says the ‘low-IQ’ president’s ‘all options are on the table’ remarks are a farce; warns against US strike

President Barack Obama is a “low-IQ US president,” whose threat to launch a military offensive should nuclear talks fail is an oft-cited punchline in the Islamic Republic, particularly among children, an Iranian general said on Tuesday.

“The low-IQ US president and his country’s Secretary of State John Kerry speak of the effectiveness of ‘the US options on the table’ on Iran while this phrase is mocked at and has become a joke among the Iranian nation, especially the children,” General Masoud Jazayeri said, according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.

Jazayeri was responding to the US president’s interview in Bloomberg on Sunday, in which Obama maintained that the Iranian leadership should take his “all options on the table” stance — including the warning of a potential military strike — seriously.

“We have a high degree of confidence that when they look at 35,000 US military personnel in the region that are engaged in constant training exercises under the direction of a president who already has shown himself willing to take military action in the past, that they should take my statements seriously,” the president told Bloomberg.

Jazayeri called Obama’s statements regarding the deployment of US troops “completely inexpert remarks far from the reality, and these statements can be used as the joke of the year.”

The Iranian news agency Tuesday published a political cartoon mocking the US president, calling it: “All Options on Table.” This Time for Russia.” In a jab at US non-intervention in Ukraine, the cartoon portrays Obama peering forlornly into an empty paint can with the label “Red Line” while Russian President Vladimir Putin walks away saying, “I think you used it all on Syria.”

The Iranian general also issued a warning to Obama that should US forces make a move, “the region will be turned into a hell for them.”

Jazayeri is the second high-ranking official to castigate Obama since the interview was published Sunday. On Monday night, Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham panned Obama’s comments for undermining the diplomatic process.

“One part of the remarks made by the US president is in contradiction to the principles of the international law and against the spirit of diplomatic negotiations meant to prevent unconstructive slogans and resorting to threats,” Afkham said.

Under an interim deal clinched in November, Iran agreed to curb parts of its nuclear program for six months in exchange for limited sanctions relief. The agreement came into effect on January 20.

Negotiators from the P5+1 group of world powers — the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany — are set to resume talks on a permanent accord with Iranian nuclear negotiators on March 17 in Vienna.

“The (nuclear) negotiations are going well … I’m hoping by the first deadline (July 20) we will reach an agreement,” Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters on the sidelines of an event in New Delhi on February 28.

However, he said that there were still disagreements between the sides, referencing a “problem in terms of both substance and approach.” He added that Iran would not get rid of its enrichment program.

“I can tell you that Iran’s nuclear program will remain intact. We will not close any program,” he said, according to Reuters.

Western nations and Israel have long suspected Iran of pursuing a nuclear weapons capability alongside its civilian program, charges denied by Tehran.

They don't have just the administration's number, they have the entire nation's number. After all, Odumbo was elected not once, but twice. What does that say about Americans who were willing to elect a drug addled, remedial affirmative-action candidate to the office of president?

BHO will be recorded as our nation's last act of hubris; a country so devoid of seriousness, that it decided that gender politics and other trivialities were more important than global politics.

Well, you reap what you sow, and what this country is going to start reaping is only beginning.

You got that right! The majority of the voters are now getting what they voted for. Not once, but twice in succession. and the best is yet to come. I have even heard some Obama worshipers complaining about how bad things are. They know bad things are happening to them, but they do not have the intelligence to realize that they are happening to them because of the choice[s] they made on election day.

35,000 troops... the bulk of which are Navy (5th Fleet) or USAF. The key number is how many infantry. Not enough.

I never would have thought a time would come when I was not outraged by a foreign enemy insulting the president of the United States. I never thought a time would come when I would not feel a deep-seated compulsion to vehemently defend the president of my country from such attacks - even if I differed from the man politically...

...but here I am.

I guess this is what comes from having a president whose philosophy is SO opposed to virtually every single tenet of American freedom, patriotism and pride, as to be, quiet literally, foreign.

The thought of defending Barack Hussein Obama against personal attacks from Masoud Jazayeri is as abhorrent to me as defending a Marxist against personal attacks from a Fascist (or vice-versa).

It saddens me, though, because I WANT to want to defend the president of my country from personal attacks by foreigners.

If you don’t believe the line about the low IQ of the Indonesian, take a look at the faces of the high IQ officials (certainly at least some of them)at the NSC meeting photo on another thread.

Freaking hilarious! To the whole world, except American liberals and their media lap dogs, neither of which get it.

My grandfather was an assistant county prosecutor up in Indiana, 90 years ago. He told my dad, when Dad was of age, that you could always tell when a murder was a homosexual murder, by the blood on the ceiling.

Carter's policies made him look like a genius, next to Barky.

At least Carter and Harold Brown (his SecDef) recognized what congressional DemonRats had done to the country's defense capabilities, with NATO generals running out and writing The Third World War and Tom Clancy writing Red Storm Rising to give people a shout-out on what was about to happen if someone didn't take charge, fast, and turn the trends around.

Brown and Carter protected and fostered the Stealth program (F-117, B-2) and deployed lots of cruise and Pershing II missiles to counter the blackmail plot the Russians had going with their SS-20 mobile IRBM system that threatened Europe, and with which they hoped to drive a wedge between the US and the rest of NATO.

Can anyone on this board see Barky doing something like that?
