Those Hilarious Jokers in Tehran Obama Wants to Befriend

March 27th, 2014 - 11:46 am

Who says the Iranian regime is run by dour old men with no sense of humor?  Wrong!  Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has just written a screamingly funny letter (dated March 26th) to Ban Ki-moon, the secretary general of the United Nations, and asked that it be widely distributed.  I’m happy to oblige.  Laugh along with me and Javad as we parse our way through the highlights.

The letter portrays Iran as the innocent victim of state-sponsored terrorism, beginning with “the shocking news about the possible murder of one of the five Iranian border guards abducted on February 7, 2014 by an extremist terrorist group, in the border area between Iran and Pakistan.”  Note that he neatly classifies a “possibility” into a “fact,” a leitmotif that runs throughout the letter.  He then lists several other attacks, including “repeated explosions and terrorist attacks in our Eastern border in recent months….Two car-bomb attacks on the Iranian diplomatic and cultural premises in Beirut on 19 November 2013 and 19 February 2014….Abduction and murder of Iranian diplomatic personnel in Sana’a, including kidnapping of an Iranian diplomat, Mr. Nour Ahmad Nikbakht, on July 21, 2013, and brutal assassination of another, Mr. Abolghassem Assadi, on January 18, 2014; and-Suicide attack on the Iranian Consulate-General in Peshawar, on February 25, 2014.”

As if the “diplomats” and military forces of Zarif’s regime were just minding their own peaceful business!  Iran is up to its neck in the civil war in Yemen, actively waging war against the Syrian opposition, actively supporting anti-American terrorists in Pakistan and Afghanistan, repressing any and all signs of independence from the Balouchi tribes in Iran and across its eastern borders, and calling the shots for the Hezbollah killers in Lebanon.  Maybe Ban Ki-moon will remind Zarif that he who kills first is not entitled to whine and beg for help when his intended victims fight back.

The mullahfia inspires their victims to "go to the mattresses" against them...and they run to call a crooked cop on their payroll to whine about it.

The UN is corrupt and wholly lacking in credibility.

The Russian/Iranian alliance will "unexpectedly!!!" deliver Iran a gift wrapped nuke in six months or so.

China will applaud and take over much of the Pacific Ocean.

And Obama/Kerry/Jarrett/Hagel/Biden/Power will say that they are giving chance a piece.

"The letter portrays Iran as the innocent victim of state-sponsored terrorism"

The thing is this is true. The problem is it is their own government terrorizing the people of Iran. Back the opposition, get the Mulocracy out of power, and the problems will disappear.

Any truth to the rumor that Zarif will take over from Jay Carney when he leaves?

Thanks for your incite Mr. Leeden, I just hope somewhere in our government, somebody is preparing correctly, because after reading your articles and other informed peoples articles, I see all hell breaking loose.

Perhaps Zarif sees our own criminal organization (the Democratic Party) and wants in.

Michael, isn't it ironic and somewhat sickening that, after all these years of your encouraging action on Iran, bigger adversaries, Russia and China, have jumped into the fray and appear about to make things messy and menacing for the US--and appear to make the Iran problem seem trivial? The two are not unconnected: by signalling weakness in the Middle East the US has virtually invited other rivals to make their moves.

You're certainly in a position to say, I told you so, but more importantly your arguments in favor of a forward policy toward potential adversaries appear stronger than ever. (But let me clarify that the concept of a "forward policy" involves a variety of proactive steps; it is not simply the idea of making war.)

it's a big war, Iran's an important enemy in a global network that includes Russia and China. as i keep saying...that's why Venezuela is so important and why Cuba, Iran and Russia will try very hard to sustain the chavista dictatorship there.

Ledeen: what do you think the goal is of this letter? Simply to state a type of propaganda where everything bad Iran does, they accuse others of doing (i.e. state sponsored terrorism)? Or is there something else?

Why do you think they didn't mention Israel by name? I mean, really, what's the point of this thing?

the "point of this thing" is to sustain a very successful deception campaign. deception is an integral part of warfare, let's not forget.

Thanks for you reply. I appreciate it.

You've essentially reminded me that there are some who are so willing to believe this sort of thing that they are "low hanging fruit" for Iran. That is, it makes sense for Iran to put out a bit of nonsense like this because it will in fact still convince and/or further "proselytize" them to Iran's cause.

My error was in forgetting that there are many people who fall into this "low hanging fruit" category. Thank you for reminding me.

Also of course, for those people who are perhaps a bit more wise, this letter still provides them "official" propaganda with which they can rebut those of us who are defenders of Western Civilization.

It's funny, not that long ago, I would have considered a phrase like "defenders of Western Civilization" as a bit comical -- a throwback perhaps to battling against the Muslim hordes in the 1400 or 1500's perhaps.

Now however, as the Chinese saying goes, "we live in interesting times" and that phrase is no longer a "send up" of anything. It is easily taken at face value nowadays (sigh).

Thanks again.

I recommend we drop 25,000,000 AK 47s around every town and village in Iran; The dictators, that parade as religious, would not last a week...
