The Repugs are fucking so stupid now that they are playing into the hands of Iran.

Iran seems to be very good at strategic planning, especially as they were the winners of the Iraq war.

I wonder what victory Iran will gain because of the Repugs blind hatred for Obama if any of this shit fails in Congress?

The other countries involved in the pact think that Iran's leaders are less insane than the GOP? Further power grabs in Iraq and Syria while looking the other way when it comes to Daesh?

Whatever the GOP does believe you me Iran will have already figured a response.
