The supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is notorious for his Anti-America sentiments. He has leads chants of “Death to America” in his speeches. Khamenei uses every opportunity to express his hatred for America and her citizens.
And we just agreed to lift economic sanctions from Iran and give his country $150 billion dollars for their “promise” to not try and build a nuclear weapon.
During a Senate hearing regarding this unfathomable deal, Republican Senator Jim Risch from Idaho expressed to John Kerry what many people are feeling, “You have been bamboozled and the American people are going to pay”.
This weekend, Khamenei tweeted out a veiled threat that goes a long way to proving Senator Risch right. Khamenei sent a photo with what appears to be Obama holding a gun to his own head. The text reads, “US President has said he could knock out Iran’s military. We welcome no war, nor do we initiate any war, but if any war happens, the one who will emerge loser will be the aggressive and criminal U.S.”
Despite all of this, the Obama administration is continuing to support the deal and pushing Congress to support it as well.
What do you think about the deal? About Khamenei's words? We would love to hear your thoughts.
