Iran's Supreme Leader says US foreign policy is 'disintegrating'

Via Deustche Welt:

Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has accused US Republican senators of "deceit" for intending to scrap any nuclear deal once President Barack Obama's term ends. Khamenei was reacting to a recent Republican letter...
...Referring to the Republicans written intention to override any Obama deal with Iran, Khamenei reportedly asked, "Isn't this the ultimate degree of the collapse of political ethics and the US system's internal disintegration?"

It seems that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader, did not see the humor in what Senate Republicans are now trying to characterize as a "Light-Hearted, Cheeky" Joke. It's painfully obvious that those same Senate Republicans are woefully ignorant of the fact that Iran is armed to the teeth with modern weapons, many of which are manufactured in Iran, and that shock and awe will not cause the Iranians to throw down their weapons and flee. In one careless and hubristic move the Republican Senators managed to not just shred the Constitutional separation of powers, they also managed to damage the credibility of this President and his successors in office in any negotiation.
