Former Iranian President Pounces on Obama's Fecklessness and Asks For the Absurd

Give them an inch, they’ll push for a mile.

In this case, give them $400 million and they’ll demand $2 billion.

Sure. Why not?

Iran’s former hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sent a letter on Monday to President Barack Obama, asking him to “quickly fix” a U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing families of people killed in attacks linked to Iran to collect damages from some $2 billion in frozen assets.

While writing that his letter “is by no means of (a) political nature,” Ahmadinejad’s message to Obama arrives amid swirling speculation that the hard-line politician may run as a candidate in Iran’s presidential election next year.

Did you catch that?

Ahmadinejad apparently doesn’t understand the separation of powers in the United States.

Then again, neither does Obama.

The former Iranian top boss wants Obama to cheat the families of Iran’s terrorist regime’s victims out of compensation that was promised to them by law.

The SCOTUS decision came down 6-2, in April, allowing families of the 1983 Marine barracks bombing in Beirut, as well as other attacks linked to Iran, to collect monetary damages.

The letter, which was delivered to the Swiss Embassy in Tehran, was quoted in The Blaze:

“It is the clear expectation of the Iranian nation that the particular case of property seizure … be quickly fixed by your excellency and that not only the Iranian nation’s rights be restored and the seized property released and returned, but also the damaged caused be fully compensated for,” the letter said.

“I passionately advise you not to let the historical defamation and bitter incident be recorded under your name,” Ahmadinejad added.

Who, besides maybe a few twisted fruits on the left, refers to Obama as “your excellency”?

Beyond that, I would hope that President Obama’s reply would read something like this:

“Dear Mahmoud,

And people in Hell want ice water, but they’re not going to get it.

Fondly,

Barry O.”

I won’t hold my breath for that one, however.
