John Kerry: Hey, maybe those ‘death to America’ chants in Iran actually mean death to America

Rumor has it a nice Iranian negotiator once told John Kerry not to worry because “death to America” translates in Persian to “we love our U.S. deal partner,” but the sharp-as-a-tack, smarter-than-you-by-leaps-and-bounds secretary of state seems to be having an awakening:

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said a speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Saturday vowing to defy American policies in the region despite a deal with world powers over Tehran’s nuclear program was “very disturbing”.

“I don’t know how to interpret it at this point in time, except to take it at face value, that that’s his policy,” he said in the interview with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television, parts of which the network quoted on Tuesday.

“But I do know that often comments are made publicly and things can evolve that are different. If it is the policy, it’s very disturbing, it’s very troubling,” he added.

Ayatollah Khamenei told supporters on Saturday that U.S. policies in the region were “180 degrees” opposed to Iran’s, at a speech in a Tehran mosque punctuated by chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”.

These are the same people reconciling with Cuba and who “re-set” relations with Russia (you know how that’s going). This administration will agree to anything just so they can say they made an “historic” deal. Lots of things can be “historic,” stupidity being just one example. Supreme arrogance combined with self-centered naivety are some seriously dangerous leadership attributes.

Here’s how the nuke “deal” has worked out (John Kerry, yellow shirt):
