A number of Iranian MPs set the American flag & the #JCPOA on fire on the floor of #Iran's parliament while shouting "Down with America." The speaker of the parliament Ali Larijani jokes, "It doesn't [want] to catch on fire either!" #IranDeal pic.twitter.com/9ODlzBmyi5— Reza H. Akbari (@rezahakbari) May 9, 2018
Iranian judiciary's website Mizan wrote, "Trump does not have the mental capacity to deal with issues."
Ha ha ha. But Iranian parliament does. Good one. I love you guys. You tell the best jokes.
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said, "Iran is a country that adheres to its commitments and the US is a country that has never adhered to its commitments."
Iran's adheres to its commitments like supporting terrorism worldwide. Making its country a cause rather than a nation, as Henry Kissinger noted, and to the detriment of its own population. Its commitment to its interpretation of its religion, not to the welfare of its citizens. And that's why the theocracy is doomed. And very likely doomed under Trump, through Trumps committed support.
Iran understands we're schizophrenic. But sometimes we do adhere to our committments. . We have a few significant contradictions to that general rule, The demilitarized zone between Koreas and our agreement with South Korea to kick North Korea's butt should they bust a move on the south. Our support for Israel that gnaws on the nerves of Iran leadership so achingly. Our support for Japan through its transition from a feudal society to an advanced democratic society, our Marshall Plan that reconstructed Europe to the advanced societies they are today. And we can look to the future to what we'll do with Iran after their theocracy implodes by overextension. Our proxies just kicked their proxies asses in Syria just now. Just today. Didn't they feel that?
The leadership of Iran cannot tell the difference between a flimsy Executive Order made without Congressional approval and a genuine commitment. But point taken. Thousands would agree. Including our own Native American populations.
Burn, Iranian Parliament, burn. Burn your whole house down.
