In a stunning turn of events, Iran passes a bill that essentially says, “No, you.”
Because obviously they are not the terrorists.
The same body that chanted “Death to America” in their parliament yesterday has today passed a bill labeling the American military and the Pentagon as terrorist organizations.
The ‘parliament’ of #Iran unanimously chants “death to America!”…
I ask the Senators, the congressmen, and a certain former president, is this the nation you continuously defend?

Geez, they’re really taking the killing of Soleimani pretty hard.
It passed unanimously, but then, would you want to be the lone lawmaker in Iran that opposed the bill? Dissent in Iran doesn’t go over very well…
Iran’s parliament reportedly passed legislation on Tuesday designating the U.S. military and the Pentagon as terrorist organizations after the drone strike that killed Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani last week in Baghdad.
The legislation was approved unanimously by 223 lawmakers, Iranian state media reported, according to USA Today. The move comes after the country’s Supreme National Security Council designated U.S. Central Command, the U.S. military’s Middle East command unit, a terrorist group last year.
In addition, a motion approving $220 million was allocated to the Quds Force, you know, the one that was led by Soleimani and was responsible for military action outside of Iraq? It was the organization that gives the Iranian government “plausible deniability” (and sometimes “implausible deniability” but they denied anyway,) by hiding behind the actions of their non-Iranian allies but with Soleimani as the mastermind behind any attacks.
Iranian lawmakers also supported a motion dedicating $220 million to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’s Quds Force, the newspaper reported. Soleimani was the leader of the elite military branch, which managed Tehran’s ties to armed groups outside of Iran.

CNN interviewed Iran’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, who is a bit miffed that the U.S. denied him a visa to address the United Nations this week.
Denying me a visa in violation of 1947 UNHQ Agreement pales in comparison to:
-Pompeo's threat to starve Iranians (crime against humanity)
-Trump's bluster about cultural heritage (war crime)
But what are they really afraid of? Truth?

I think it has less to do with fear of the “truth” than the $80 million bounty that Iran just put on the head of the President of the United States.
Zarif’s panties are in a bunch because he has to stay in Tehran to spread Iranian propaganda instead of getting a platform at the elite club for Dictators in Manhattan. Nevermind that he was already under sanctions from back in July that prevented him from traveling to the United States anyway.
No worries, though. The Media(D) is there to help. “They fear that someone comes to the U.S. and reveals realities,” he said to the Associated Press. “The world is not limited to New York, and you can talk to the American people from Tehran, and we will do that.”
Well, it’s not like you have a choice there, do you, Moe?
In an interview, CNN allowed Zarif to malign the President of the United States while he whined about not being allowed to go to New York. In a classic case of projection, Zarif said, President Trump “has no respect for international law and is prepared to commit war crimes.” He says that the United States committed a terrorist act and that Iranian leaders are law-abiding people “not like President Trump.”
Zarif also went on about “proportionality” and how it’s so important to follow international law. And we’re supposed to believe this coming from Iran? Iran that repeatedly violated the 2015 JCPOA deal negotiated by Obama? Iran that is still the number 1 state sponsor of terrorism, Iran? THAT Iran?
But you know that the Media(D), the Democrats, and the empty-headed, pretty people in Hollywood will swallow this Iranian propaganda hook, line, and sinker. They’ll wring their hands, clutch their pearls, and wail about World War III and the Bad Orange Man in the White House. My mother always told me “show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.” Someone needs to tell the leftists that.
The Iranian government labeling the United States, the beacon of freedom in the world, as a terrorist organization is peak Iran.
Buckle up, 2020 is gonna get wild!
