According to Fars News Agency, the media outlet run by the revolutionary guards of the Islamic Republic, the regime’s senior military commander mocked the U.S. president for his remarks of “all option are on the table” in regard to the Islamic regime’s nuclear program.
Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces for Cultural Affairs and Defense Publicity Brigadier General Massoud Jazzayeri called the recent statements of US President Barack Obama on Iran as “the joke of the year”, and warned Washington to be watchful of its words and actions when dealing with Iran or wait for “hell”.
President Obama told Bloomberg news network a few days ago that 95 percent of the sanctions will remain in place during the course of negotiations between Iran and six world powers (the US, Russia, France, China and Britain plus Germany) over Tehran’s nuclear energy program. “We’re going to enforce them, and we’ve been enforcing them during the course of these discussions.”
In response, General Jazzayeri 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, specially the children.”
He reiterated that all US forces in the region are within the reach of Iran’s military power and “if they err, the region will be turned into a hell for them”.
General Jazzayeri pointed to Obama’s recent statements about the number of the US troops in the region, and said, “Obama’s statements about the number of the US troops in the region and the extent of their influence are completely inexpert remarks far from the reality, and these statements can be used as the joke of the year.”
The senior Iranian military commander asked the American people to cast doubt over the statements of their statesmen, saying “if they contemplate a little, they will come to realize how false many of their words are”.
Following Obama’s remarks, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham cautioned that Washington is trying to negatively influence the Iran-world powers progressive talks.
“One part of the remarks made by the US president is in contradiction to the principles of the international law and against the spirit of diplomatic negotiations meant to prevent unconstructive slogans and resorting to threats,” Afkham said on Monday evening.
She explained that another part of President Obama’s remarks results from delusions about Iran’s intentions regarding its presence in diplomatic talks.
Fars News Agency also published a political cartoon on Tuesday mocking the US president, calling it: “All Options on Table.” This Time for Russia.”
