    funnily enough, iran and israel are on the same page, at least for this one.

    “Trusting the U.S. would be a big mistake… cooperation with America goes… against the independence” of both countries.

    If Trump is elected their will be no light at the end of the tunnel for that Iranian lunatic.The only light he will see is himself glowing in the dark along with his entire country. Their will be mourning though as Obama leads the choir in cockroach heaven.

    We’ll be hearing such nonsense from the Iranian ruling clergy for many years. It will take at least that long for them to begin to view the West – particularly the US – through a different colored lense, just as has been the case regarding Cuba.
    But unlike Cuba, the US was far too quick to withdraw nearly all economic and financial sanctions from Iranian matters, thus leaving Iran with much less incentive to change its ways (such as ceasing to fund terrorist organizations and activities) than was the case regarding Cuba.
