Iran’s Foreign Minister Schools GOP Traitors on Constitution and International Law

Iran-Foreign-Minister

Many Americans are rightly incensed at the revelation that 47 Republican Senators signed on to an open letter to hardliners in Iran warning them that according to their pledge of loyalty to a foreigner leading the nation of Israel, they will make sure that America does not abide by its international agreements. Although there is no doubt the Republicans’ goal is sabotaging American efforts for a peaceful resolution with Iran over its alleged nuclear ambitions, it is somewhat surprising so many Americans were stunned at the news. After all, the only reason corrupt John Boehner brought Benjamin Netanyahu to America was to lobby the full Congress to pass a piece of neo-con  war power legislation to sabotage the United Nation’s (P5+1) attempt to avoid another American Middle East war Netanyahu is desperate to start.

The reason Boehner appeared to violate the Logan Act was not necessarily for communicating with a foreigner, but because he summoned the foreigner to help the GOP “influence the measures or conduct of a foreign government (Iran), and defeat the measures of the United States.”

Having failed in the first Netanyahu ploy, Senate Republicans displayed their fealty to the Israeli foreigner by warning Iran that despite the Constitution or international law, Republicans and Netanyahu set America’s Middle East policy; not the leader of the Executive branch President Obama. It is something that astonished Iran’s Foreign Minister Zarif who took time out of his busy schedule to informthe letter’s authors” that they are as ignorant of their own Constitution as their stupid Confederate base of supporters.

Zarif said, “in our view, this letter has no legal value and is mostly a propaganda ploy.  It is very interesting that while negotiations are still in progress and while no agreement has been reached, some political pressure groups are so afraid even of the prospect of an agreement that they resort to unconventional methods, unprecedented in diplomatic history.  This indicates that like Netanyahu, who considers peace an existential threat, some are opposed to any agreement, regardless of its content.” Republican and Netanyahu war mongering is certainly not a secret, but it is a very prescient statement coming from so-called “warmongering” Iranians.

Last week, two Republican traitors, war mongers Lindsey Graham and Tom Cotton, pledged to “derail Iran negotiations,” and the treasonous 47’s letter was an attempt to fulfill that promise. Graham told an audience at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) that besides killing the Iranian negotiations, he will defund the United Nations because the P5+1 (permanent members of U.N. Security Council plus Germany) are the principles negotiating with Iran. It is not, as the GOP traitors’ letter asserted, a negotiation between Barack Obama (America) and the Ayatollah Khomeini (Iran).

In fact, that GOP assertion puzzled the Iranian Foreign Minister and incited him to school the traitors. First Zarif said he was astonished that “some members of US Congress find it appropriate to write to leaders of another country against their own President and administration” at all, but particularly over a multi-national negotiation effort. So he took the GOP traitors back to eighth grade history class. An Iranian had to point out that “from reading the open letter, it seems that the authors not only do not understand international law, but are not fully cognizant of the nuances of their own Constitution when it comes to presidential powers in the conduct of foreign policy.” Republicans have not been fully cognizant of any presidential powers since January 2009 because Barack Obama is not white; a fact likely not lost on the savvy Iranian.

Zarif added that “I should bring one important point to the attention of the authors and that is, the world is not the United States, and the conduct of inter-state relations is governed by international law; not US domestic law. The authors may not fully understand that in international law, governments represent the entirety of their respective states, are responsible for the conduct of foreign affairs, are required to fulfill the obligations they undertake with other states, and may not invoke their internal law as justification for failure to perform their international obligations.”

The Iranian Foreign Minister also reminded the GOP traitors that regardless their allegiance to foreigner Netanyahu, a “change of administration does not in any way relieve the next administration from international obligations undertaken by its predecessor in a possible agreement about Iran’s peaceful nuclear program. I wish to enlighten the authors that if the next administration revokes any agreement with ‘the stroke of a pen,’ as they boast, it will have simply committed a blatant violation of international law.” However, in the same manner that Republicans violated the Logan Act, they have blatantly violated international laws forbidding discrimination, inhumane treatment of American citizens, and torture; it is something the United Nations should be very cognizant of in monitoring America to ensure it honors any Security Council agreement with Iran.

As the Iranian had to remind  the 47 traitors, “the current negotiation with P5+1 [Britain, China, France, Germany Russia and the United States] will result in a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. It is not a bilateral agreement between Iran and the US, but one concluded with five other countries including all permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, and endorsed by a Security Council resolution.” It is also not a treaty regardless what the traitors contend. That moronic idea was proposed by John McCain to give Republicans in the Senate power to scuttle any proposed deal; all to expedite and ensure Netanyahu’s plan for an American-Iranian war stayed on schedule. As an aside, Netanyahu has already pledged to bomb Iran in protest if the P5+1 and Iran negotiations are successful and reach a peaceful agreement.

The Iranian may know the Constitution and international law better than the treasonous 47, but it seems he does not understand that in America, Republicans are not bound to any law; domestic or international. Still, he hoped to “enrich the knowledge of the authors to recognize that according to international law, Congress may not ‘modify the terms of the agreement at any time’ as they claim, and if Congress adopts any measure to impede its implementation, it will have committed a material breach of US obligations.” Since January 2009, Republicans have done nothing but breach their obligations as legislators and have no desire to adhere to any American obligation implemented under an African American President.

The Iranian Foreign Minister stated “the Islamic Republic of Iran has entered these negotiations in good faith and with the political will to reach an agreement, and it is imperative for our counterparts to prove similar good faith and political will in order to make an agreement possible.” Mr. Zarif can rest assured that America, as part of the so-called P5+1, will act in good faith regardless the gang of 47 Republicans effort to sabotage their own government. What remains to be seen, is if their government will take any punitive action against them for aligning with a foreign enemy (Netanyahu) to derail a U.N. Security Council agreement to maintain peace with Iran. With Netanyahu now a powerful member of America’s government, it is highly doubtful there will be any negative consequences for yet another blatant act of Republicans conspiring with a foreigner to sabotage America.

  1. I have said it many times. Any person wishing to run for public office must first PASS a civics test, and perhaps a history test and hey, throw in a science test (climate change anyone? I am not a scientist) and maybe a math test (do not know the difference between debt and deficit). All these topics were in my grade school (rural) classes. When a leader of another country has to school our very own senators, what does that say about our education system?

  2. It is a woefully sad state of your ideology when a world class enemy is schooling you on proper diplomacy and even your own founding documents. Many of us here in America have been trying to educate the Reich Wing for years on how to act in a honorable manner.But it’s no use, they simply refuse to part of the whole or any solution and refuse to discuss or compromise. They refuse any logic and replace it with witless rhetoric. They make me ashamed of being an American sometimes.

  3. How about drug testing, too? Since these clowns are paid from taxpayers money and they want welfare recipients to be drug tested, that would only be fair. Cotton is in the pockets of defense contractors, so that explains his actions. The rest of them should be investigated, expose their ties to weapons contractors.

  4. This action is a slap in the face of the other nations working with the US to secure peace in the Middle East. These clowns think ONLY they have any authority. They must be raking in the $$$$ to support Israel so fiercely. Tough talking Miss Lindsey is a joke.

  5. Just when you think these a-holes can’t sink any lower, they dig through the bottom of the barrel into the muck underneath.

  6. Beyond belief that US elected officials of any party would so foolishly venture towards their own indictment – heart grippingly worrisome! Avoid name calling – instead, educate and vote!

  7. The radical right of the US Congress and the states are seditious conspirators.US CODE 2384 SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY. They are doing it with the laws in the states, voter rights, abortion, the ACA. Section 2384 states: If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or any place subject t to the jurisdiction of the U item States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to impose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States (ACA), or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the …

  8. Too bad we know longer have medieval forms of torture, because these traitors deserve the pain and suffering it would inflict. They all need to be on the rack, hanged, drawn and quartered with their hearts ripper out, then some, for what they are attempting to do.

    Not only did they betray this country, they showed the most disrespect for this Presidential than they have ever shown! To me, this strikes of a coup, and e everyone of them should be punished, severely, but won’t be.
    What they attempted to do was beyond disgraceful

  9. I wonder if the U.S is stupid enough to start a word war , just to save Israel from their own mistakes. ?
    It is time for the U.S to re-think this ” friendship ”
    Netanyahu wants war , let it fight it alone without help from us.
    Israel is a bully simply because the U.S backs it up , so it can commit acts of genocide , and murder without being punished for it, as any other country has.
    It is time for Israel to stand on its own 2 feet and the U.S to let go..and look after its own interests first.

  10. Tom Cotton is a very dangerous idiot
    In 2013, Cotton offered an amendment that would have harshly punished people violating sanctions on Iran. Actually, Cotton wouldn’t have stopped at harshly punishing the violators themselves:

    Cotton also seeks to punish any family member of those people, “to include a spouse and any relative to the third degree,” including, “parents, children, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, grandparents, great grandparents, grandkids, great grandkids,” Cotton said.
    Yes, Cotton thinks that the great grandchildren of people who violate Iran sanctions should be imprisoned. Which, by the way, is completely unconstitutional.

  11. The GOP has done more harm to this country than ISIS would ever do..or can
    The people should be more afraid of the GOP than any terrorist organization..

  12. The RepuBLicans never cease to amaze me with their stupidity. They don’t even realise that they can try and f**k negotiations up for the rest of the other countries as well.
    PLEASE AMERICA WAKE UP AND DON’T VOTE THESE IDIOTS IN IN 2016. OTHERWISE THE COUNTRY IS DOOMED.

  13. Why are we still allowing and paying these GOP jackals and morons to screw us and embarrass us around the world??? Why??? Demand (NOW!!!) that they “all” be held accountable for their acts of treason and sedition against the Government Of The U.S.A.. NOW!!!! Rise up and protest or remain a silent sheep and be buried by their ilk. We have no other choice people. In my opinion. Its now or never. They will destroy this country over night if they could because their masters will reward them well and take care of them for screwing us. The GOP are Satan’s minions or just the plain ordinary stooges of the elite 1%. It doesn’t matter who they are. They are pure evil…

  14. I don’t think we should ever “cotton” to this clown Tom Cotton. In this case “Cotton is not the fabric of life” but the diaphanous fabricated fabric of thinly disguised idiocy and arrogance that cloaks the conservative ideology. Tom Cotton sounds like a code name from the anal(s) of KKK liturgy. Like…Hi I’m Tom Cotton..response And I’m Walter Whiteman.

  15. There’s just something about KKKonservatives and the number 47!!! First Mitt “the Twit” and now the 47 Senators. What’s next?

  16. This letter is the result of Netanyahu’s address to Congress. Maybe he even dictated that letter which these moron GOP Senators simply signed. Who is running this country, foreigners and red-necks? Simply, this is Obama bashing, without knowing what it does to these United States of America of ours. No matter what Obama does, the GOP is against it. These are Juveniles, and need to be removed from their post and punished for their treasonous actions against this country.

  17. Cotton at the very least should be expelled from the senate, someone should start impeachment hearings on him, and possibly some of the others.

  18. I think I really like Mr. Zarif.
    Can we arrange to swap our 47 incompetent clowns for a few well-educated Iranians?

  19. Looks like Beebs is in trouble because of his stunt

    Herzog Lead Over Netanyahu Increases to 3 Seats
    With one week to go before the Israeli election, a broad-based poll shows Isaac Herzog’s center-left Zionist Union poised to win.
    The poll commissioned by the Knesset Channel was conducted among a sampling of 1,027 Israeli adults, double the usual sampling size, with a margin of error of three percent.

    According to the survey, if elections were held today, the Zionist Union would win 24 seats in the 120-seat Knesset, while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party would win 21 seats.

  20. It’s very sad how the Iranians have to school OUR tea bag/repub senators. These 47 very dim senators have made the US the laughing stock of the world. They took lessons from Dumya 2001-2009.

  21. Yes, the U.S. IS stupid enough to wage such a war. Susan Rice stated that the U.S.had Israel’s back “NO MATTER WHAT!”

  22. I am salivating at the thought that this lying politician, Bibi Netanyahu might lose. How dare he enter into American politics? It gives the impression he controls the US and when Israel says jump, the US congress does just that. But to embarrass our president without notifying him first is UNFORGIVABLE!

  23. Brings message of peace? WTF are so stupid that you cant tell the difference between peace and advocating for war? Wait don’t answer that chickenhawk

  24. The #47 sent Mitt Romney to the corner of the room in shame.
    The 47 Senators should walk the plank of shame, but made first to sit in the corner of the room with a dunce hat on, and read the Constitution and some International Law 101.

  25. I would like to know where the Dems are??

    Instead of getting behind this and pushing for charges, or some kind of consequence for the 47, they are typically acting like it didn’t happen. This is what gets to me. They have a chance to call them out, and they are quiet. Very disappointing.

    Can you imagine if it was the reverse situation? GOP would be bellowing for resignations and worse.

  26. They are calling them out on the Senate floor but since our media yawns you don’t hear about it but what about those emails? Now that’s a real scandal. I need a drink

  27. These clowns should read up on the
    history of fascism. Remember, Mussolini
    was deposed by his own men. Interesting.

  28. The Koch brothers are probably behind the whole thing. Boehner and the rest of his scumbags have probably had a lot of money out in their pockets lately.

  29. It is a sad indictment on these 47 Ronin, who feel rebelling against their own president is perfectly acceptable, show less knowledge of the Constitution (i.e. the single most important part of their job description) than a citizen of a country whose constitution is as far right as any Repub wet dream could ever be… Ah, sweet, sweet theocracy.

    You had one job, traitors…

  30. Its a “coup”, the US Military should do their job and go into the Congress and arrest everyone of those Traitors. Throw away the key, better yet, they didn’t want to close “Gitmo” thats where traitors who try to take down the USA Government go.
    Waterboard them, they don’t think its torture. Let them say “Uncle” SAM!!

  31. It’s very embarrassing that the Iranian government is so well educated. And one of the republican front runners for 2016 is a college drop out (I just learned that about Walker a few days ago). It was embarrassing when we ended up with a president who had been a C student, too.

    America better gets its act together or we won’t be here long at all.
