Ah Gelechter: Iranian General Says Obama Threats Are “Joke Of Year”


iran-general-masoud-jazayeriPresident 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.”

  1. Of course this man is saying the truth. But as we know, the Republicans will fumble this one as well and the Democrats will run roughshod over the weakling RINO’s in 2016! Remember the Republican playbook rule #1: Never ever criticize Obama because CNN will call you a RACIST!!! Just continue what Romney & McCain did! L O S E R S!!!

  2. The Iranians are highly intelligent, disciplined, and educated people, and this one sounds like a sixth grade loudmouth. The only possibility is that they davka want to precipitate a military confrontation to demonstrate their power, and they don’t want to initiate it so they can hold the moral high ground.

  3. Obama is a laughing stock president all over the world.

    The world wonders how stupid the American people are to vote for such a buffoon.

  4. Obama is the biggest obamanation the USA ever had. He is only making things worse on a daily basis as he continues as president. he should’ve been vetoed out of presidency long ago

  5. just because a person is a rasha doesn’t make him stupid. In fact, the opposite is the case, most of the worlds biggest rashim are very highly intelligent. Intelligence is a gift a person is given at birth. What he chooses to do with that intelligence is his choice; he can become a tzaddik or rasha. So please don’t underestimate the Irainian regime. They may be rashaim, but certainly many of them are highly intelligent.
