The Ayatollah Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader, rejected any US medical aid to his country this morning.
His reason? The US might be sending them more of the Covid-19 virus under the guise of medicine.
“The US government has declared a few times that they are ready to help #Iran with medicines to fight the #CoronaOutbreak. That’s strange. Firstly, based on the words of your own officials, you face shortages in the US. So use what you have for your own patients,” he tweeted.
“[Secondly ]you’re accused of having created #Coronavirus. I don’t know how true it is. But when there’s such an allegation, can a wise man trust you? You could be giving medicines that spread the virus or cause it to remain. Experience shows you can’t be trusted and you do such things,” he continued.
For some reason no one thinks it is strange that Khamenei is spreading absurd conspiracy theories that the US is infecting the world with Covid-19.
By his logic, it was certainly very stupid for the US to ever make an agreement with Iran over nuclear weapons – because experience shows that they do not adhere to agreements and wise people can never trust Iran since there were (more than) rumors that they seek nuclear weapons capabilities and have tried to hide them.
