Masoud Jazayeri says the low-IQ presidents 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 countrys 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 presidents 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 Obamas 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 Obamas 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 Im 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 Irans 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.
Finally! Someone else noticed.
Hate to say that I agree with the son of a pig f’n dog but in this case he is completely right.
Expect Time outs to be Issued from the State Department soon for piling on the man-child!
Just saw this on DRUDGE. Boy, do they have this administrations number.
O-oh, Barry. Looks like they’ve got the goods on you.
I’m embarrassed for my country.
He must have read one of my recent posts.
> Finally! Someone else noticed.
Whaddya mean? The Iranians, and everybody else with a brain, had this featherweight rainbow unicorn pegged from day-one of his candidacy.
Well the Obamacare phone number was 1800FU*YO(U)....
Is the Obama foreign policy hotline 1-800-SUCK-BAD?
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.
An agitated wimp can be very unpredictable and dangerous.
Yeah, but we have to live with this joke.
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.
Even the Iranians can clearly see the undocumented
Indonesian First-Moslem Impostor for what he is.
Unlike the treasonous “American” MSM.
