Iran's supreme leader tweeted a graphic Saturday that appears to depict President Obama holding a gun to his head as Britain relaxed its travel advice to the nation, citing decreased hostility under the Iranian government.Look, I'm sure he's just blowing smoke, right? I mean, it's not like he's the supreme leader of Iran, right? He's just a glorified bishop or something, isn't he? What? Oh, well, fine. But they couldn't possibly plan to just ignore any restrictions on them, could they? Well, maybe:
"US president has said he could knock out Iran’s military. We welcome no war, nor do we initiate any war, but.." reads the caption above the tweet sent by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on @khamenei_ir, his English language account.
Iran hit out Friday against US Secretary of State John Kerry, accusing him of threatening military action against Tehran if it fails to respect a historic nuclear deal sealed on July 14.Hey guys, what's not to love? I can't imagine how anyone could believe we can't trust these guys. They love us:
"Unfortunately the US Secretary of State once again talked about the rotten rope of 'the ability of the US for using military force'," said Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a statement.
Zarif decried what he called the "uselessness of such empty threats against the nation of Iran and the resistance of the nation of Iran", and said such remarks should be consigned "to the last century".
What could go wrong?
