Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has stated that the sanctions against Tehran show the US administration’s “despair”, calling the White House “mentally retarded”. Rouhani stressed that the sanctions against the country’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei are futile, because he has no assets abroad.

The statement comes after Iranian diplomats slammed US policy toward the Islamic Republic.

“Imposing useless sanctions on Iran’s Supreme Leader [Ayatollah Ali Khamenei] and the commander of Iran’s diplomacy [Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif] is the permanent closure of the path of diplomacy”, Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi stated.

The US sanctions targeting top Iranian statesmen come after the downing of a US drone by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps last week. According to Tehran, the UAV and P-8 Poseidon spy plane accompanying it had violated the country’s border.

At the same time, the US insists that the aircraft was flying above neutral waters in the Strait of Hormuz.

Addressing the incident, Trump said that the US planned to retaliate with a military strike, claiming he had stopped the operation 10 minutes prior to its start in order to avoid disproportionate casualties.

One must be even more retarded to believe he has some omniscien all powerful invisible friend he calls a god… By definition, a theocracy is a regime led by total retards… Just look at Iranian management of water crisis : even in the regime, they estimate that 25-30 millions of Iranians may leave the country by 2025 due to draught issues! Don’t count on the EU to accept them : we’re overcrowded and any politician accepting refugees, especially Mussies, would commit a political suicide. Moreover, look at your ayatoilets last folly : a 12,000 personnel hijab police in a 2.5M… Read more »

Daesh, by the same standard youre using, more israelis die in car crashes than by Iran (or any other group) every year but netanyahu calls them an existential threat. in the US many more hundreds of thousands (or over a million) are killed by car crashes, obesity related issues, drugs and crime (both of which shouldnt even be nearly that bad in the worlds richest country, think Japan). But the US believes Iran, thousands of km away, is a threat to its interests for killing on average between 0-10? US citizens each year. If anything Iran would be more rational… Read more »

Archeological and historical evidence have provided proof positive that the jews are NOT some special separate different ethnic group from the Canaanites and the Philistines (the ANCESTORS of modern-day Palestinians). In fact, all evidence now point to the FACT that the jews/hebrews are actually an off-shoot of the Canaanites and the Philistines, ethnically AND linguistically. The ONLY difference is that the heebs/jews were a MONOTHEISTIC COMMUNITY (believing in ONE GOD) within the GREATER CANAANITE SOCIETY which believed in a PANTHEON OF DIETIES (POLYTHEISTIC)! In fact, according to Wikipedia (see article on Jerusalem), the name JERUSALEM is a Canaanite name and… Read more »

Iran should start producing new generation centrifuges and enrich uranium in large quantities, and offer these products at 100% profit margin to those who want iran to comply JCPOA with out any benefits.
USA will not be able to block such exports like they are blocking oil sales.
So please make it your main export inste of Oil
