BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 A.M.) – US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo strongly criticized Former Secretary of State John Kerry over his meeting with European and Iranian diplomats while speaking to the press in Washington DC on Friday.

“What Secretary Kerry has done is unseemly and unprecedented. This is a former Secretary of State engaged with the world’s largest sponsor of state terror,” Pompeo said, and added “the secretary ought not to engage in that type of behaviour.”

Pompeo also said that if other US officials were participating in similar meeting, then “the admonitions that I suggested for former Secretary Kerry would apply to them as well.”

The Iranian foreign minister: Europe should thwart US sanctions or we will increase uranium enrichment
=> Not a great idea at trying to blackmail the EU : the usual EU reaction to any blackmail attempts, including from the Yankees, is… 🖕🏾
Javad Zarif is doing a terrible mistake that is likely to end with EU joining the Trump’s hardliner way and put Iran’s economy even more on its knees than it already is…

Ahmadinejad: “if they say there’s no money they (regime) should get in touch with me & I’ll tell where the money is hidden (by the regime). Ahmadinejad positioning himself as anti-regime populist. Like Faezeh Rafsanjani, he sees ship of state sinking & is looking for a new ride.

144,000 Iranian Rials for 1 single Dollar a few days ago…
Sanctions work, and the hard way…
C’mon, Khamenei, don’t give up until December : I need to change the wallpaper in my toilets. By this time, Rial bills will be way cheaper per square metre than classic wallpaper.
With such an inflation, soon the population will use Rials as toilet-paper, cleansing their fesces with Khomeini’s faces…

Stern : Kerry is no more head of the Dept of State!
Actually, he’s even an outlaw at dong this, see the Logan Act preventing US citizens from interfering with DoS diplomats, and it’s not the 1st time, he played the same thing with Mahmoud Abbas, telling him to wait until Trump is gone, so just did he onto Iranians :

@Db-Sx I know that Kerry is no official any more. But that does not change my opinion about this Pompeo.

You know what is in Surats 8 & 9, right? So you know what the raffidah regime has in store for us : exactly the same as M-Botherhood/Qaeda or ISIS. Was it up to me, we’d have taken care of the issue after Hellbollah used SVBIEDs on Blue Helmets in Beirut, 1983 or just after they stopped the Iran-Iraq war… And it’s not the only nefarious regime I’d be pleased to take out in the region, e.g. the Bani-Saud, even more the absolutely toxic Bani-Thani and I don’t care about the results of the FC Barcelona or PSG (Paris St.Germain),… Read more »

I do not know what the Mongols or raffidah planned.

But I know that the West Franconian kingdom stopped the Omayyad raffidah before Tours-Potiers when the Caliphs were at the peak of their power. And the East Franconian kingdom stopped the Sunni Ummah before Vienna when the Sultans were at peak of their power.

Both times God busted the Muslim megalomanian plans with the help of EU nations. Blink.

I bet you wouldn’t like the pre-rafidah regime FM negotiating with the Yanks about what would be feasible when Khamenei’s neck will meet with his long overdue noose… Kerry is a rafidah slave acting against US interests. In fact, it’s not the 1st time he’s doing such forbidden thing under US laws, so was his admins’ support at trying an illegal regime change in Syria. Pompeo is absolutely right about Kerry. IMHO, as he did the same with Abbas, Kerry was already threatened to be sued under the Logan act, I think he may soon be indicted : he’s going… Read more »
