John Kerry’s Response to Getting Tricked by Iran – Begging them Not to Gloat!


The Obama Administration found a way out of their negotiation screw-up, allowing Iran to legally test long-range ballistic missiles. According to the Iranian military, the U.S. solved the problem by telling the rogue nation, Ixnay on the bragging about your launches.

Despite the fact that the only purpose for long-range ballistic missiles is to deliver a nuclear payload (ballistic missiles are lousy at delivering pizza, the cheese slides to one side of the pie) according to according to President Obama’s new best buddies, our government’s only solution was to tell Iran to stop announcing their tests.  Truth be told the Administration has no recourse because they were snookered in the P5+1 negotiations.

According to a senior Iranian military commander, U.S. officials encouraged the Islamic Republic to stay mum on illicit missile tests so as not to raise concerns in the region. (H/T ConservativeFiringLine)

“At this time, the Americans are telling [us]: ‘Don’t talk about missile affairs, and if you conduct a test or maneuver, don’t mention it.’ If we agree to this, they will advance another step, and say: ‘Don’t conduct [a missile test] at this time, and also don’t do it in the Persian Gulf region.’ After that, they will tell us: ‘Why do you need your missiles to have a range of 2,000 km [anyway?]?’

“After that, they will tell [us]: ‘Next, we will check whether your missiles can really carry nuclear weapons. Bring us the details [of the missiles].’ After that, they will say: ‘We need to set up cameras.’ And, finally, they will say: ‘Either saw [the missiles up into pieces] or, like [Libyan dictator Mu’ammar] Gadhafi, load them onto a ship and hand [them] over to us.’

“They are clearly deluding themselves. Nothing like this will ever happen.”

According to the Washington Free Beacon, the State Department refused to comment on the statements, saying it doesn’t “comment on public remarks by Iranian officials, and especially IRGC officials.”  And, a department official added, “we’re not going to start now.”
