Ayatollah Khamenei Tells Fellow Maniacs "Death to America" While John Kerry Tells America to Not Waste Its "Historic Opportunity" To Strike a Deal With This Towering Statesman

This would be funny, if you saw it in a Sasha Baron Cohen movie.

Iran's Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for "Death to America" on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity" for a nuclear deal and a better future, and as US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.

"Ali" is the diminutive, familiar form "Ayatollah," usually used by family members or close friends.*

Khamenei told a crowd in Tehran that Iran would not capitulate to Western demands. When the crowd started shouting, "Death to America," the ayatollah responded: "Of course yes, death to America, because America is the original source of this pressure.


"They insist on putting pressure on our dear people's economy," he said, referring to economic sanctions aimed at halting Iran's nuclear program. "What is their goal? Their goal is to put the people against the system," he said. "The politics of America is to create insecurity," he added, referring both to US pressure on Iran and elsewhere in the region.

Of course, Death to America, indeed. Sort of like "gesundheit" after a sneeze.

Khamenei also wants you to know that Iran will remain an implacable enemy of the United States.

...

But Khamenei warned against expectations that even a done deal would mend the more than three-decade freeze between the two nations in place since the Iranian revolution and siege of the American Embassy, proclaiming that Washington and Tehran remained on opposite sides on most issues.

"Negotiations with America are solely on the nuclear issue and nothing else. Everyone has to know that," Khamenei said.

Here's how bad this deal is: France may scuttle it as "too French."

...

But France, which raised last minute objections to an interim agreement reached with Iran in 2013, could threaten a deal again. It is particularly opposed to providing Iran with quick relief from international sanctions and wants a longer timeframe for restrictions on Iran’s nuclear activity.

"France wants an agreement, but a robust agreement," French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told French radio. "That is to say, an accord that really guarantees that Iran can obviously have access to the civil nuclear (program)."

"But to the atomic bomb? No."

France indicated Saturday that it would push for an agreement with Iran that guarantees Tehran cannot build a nuclear bomb in the future, and that it opposed a phased easing of sanctions before an accord is reached.

Now, what did the White House say about this Hostile Rhetoric that threatens to undermine an Important Goal of the Nobel Peace Laureate's agenda?

Remember, the White House has said that it may have to reevaluate its commitments to Israel in light of Netanyahu's statement that a two state solution will not be had under his prime ministership. Netanyahu saying such a Hurtful Thing was enough for Obama to consider throwing Israel to the Al Qaeda-shaped wolves.

So you can imagine that Of course he had tough words for Iran's leader proclaiming "Death to America."


In other words: That was just a guy sayin' what he needed to say to keep his political support. Well, I'm sure the Serial Liar Obama can understand that impulse.

But in that case, I'm a bit confused about his bitterness towards Israel.

Oh wait, no I'm not at all.


* No it's not. I just made that up. I just want to keep you all on you feet. As Michele Obama said, this blog will not permit you to ever be complacent again.
