You can’t turn on the news right now without seeing a member of the Obama administration touting the benefits of the pending deal with Iran…even when they won’t share details with the US Public.
So, it’s fitting that as the Obama White House tries to build enthusiasm for the pending deal, Iran has a different approach to diplomacy. According to the Independent Journal Review:
After the White House trumpeted a deal with Iran over its nuclear program that President Obama called ‘historic,’ the Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted out an insulting image of President Obama:
This is the Ayatollah’s actual tweet.
US president has said he could knock out Iran’s military. We welcome no war, nor do we initiate any war, but.. pic.twitter.com/D4Co7fVuVg

By calling the US Government aggressive and criminal, I think it’s safe to say the Ayatollah is not a big fan of the pending deal. How good is a deal with Iran if those in congress don’t like it and Iran doesn’t like it.
The only people who seem to like it – and we’re not sure they know what’s in it – are the cheerleaders for the Obama White House. It’s clear they are looking for a political ‘win’ despite the costs to the country.
What do you think? Are the Ayatollah’s actions reasonable or a threat to the US? Should the US seek an agreement with Iran? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.
