Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) firmly stood by his stern letter regarding United States’ nuclear negotiations to the Iranian government on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday. When asked by “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer about a proposed alternative to an Iran deal, Cotton seemed to make a geographic error.
Schieffer: What do you want to happen here? What is your alternative here? Let’s say that the deal falls through, then what?
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.
Cotton had a major brain fart in not realizing that Tehran is the capital of Iran. So the clueless freshman senator's advice is that Iran has to be stopped because they control their capital? Check your facts, Cotton before you make absurd assumptions.
