Traitors in U.S. Senate Write Letter to Iran
Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), the supposed author of the now-infamous Iran Letter signed by the #47Traitors in the #GOP led Senate, went on a Sunday talk show and displayed an utter lack of knowledge about the history of Iran and the Persian Empire. Did you know that Iran already controls Tehran, their own capitol? OMG - how did this happen? And Iran is also in control of everything from Beirut to Baghdad - everything! Well, not really . . .
From Think Progress
But when asked by Face the Nation’s Bob Schieffer what better outcome Cotton expects if a White House-led deal falls through, Cotton seemed to make a key geographic mistake . . .
Bob Schieffer (Face the Nation): What do you want to happen here? What is your alternative here? Let’s say that the deal falls through, then what?
Sen. Tom Cotton: Well as Prime Minister Netanyahu said, the alternative to a bad deal is a better deal. The Iranians frequently bluff to walk away from the table. if they bluff this week, call their bluff. The Congress stands ready to impose much more severe sanctions. Moreover we have to stand up to Iran’s attempts to drive for regional dominance.
They already control Tehran increasingly they control Damascus and Beirut and Baghdad and now Sana’a as well. They do all that without a nuclear weapon. imagine what they would do with a nuclear weapon.
Schieffer went on to ask Cotton whether he had any regrets at all about the letter. So he didn’t clarify with Cotton what he meant by his comment that Iran has “control” of its own capital.

@SenTomCotton Strange, but Tehran does control its capital, Tehran. And the USA is in control of Washington DC. Thought I'd clear that up— Eileen R. (@babacar14) March 16, 2015
