It’s possible Iran didn’t even make those drones.
It could be just totally made up, and in fact it is increasingly looking like it is made up.
The Iranian regime issued a threatening statement a day after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky accused Tehran of supplying Russia with hundreds of deadly drones for use on the battlefield in Ukraine.
Zelensky made the claim during his speech to a joint meeting of Congress on Wednesday. An Iranian official denied the accusation on Thursday and warned that the regime’s “patience” for such allegations isn’t “endless.”
“Mr. Zelensky had better know that Iran’s strategic patience over such unfounded accusations is not endless,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani said in a message posted to the ministry’s website.
Kanaani added that Zelensky should “draw a lesson from the fate of some other political leaders who contented themselves with the US support.”
The Ukrainian president accused Russia on Wednesday of finding a “genocidal” ally in Iran as the former Soviet state continues its airstrikes against Ukrainian infrastructure.
“When Russia cannot reach our cities by its artillery, it tries to destroy them with missile attacks,” Zelensky told congressional lawmakers during a pitch for more US aid for the Ukrainian war effort. “More than that, Russia found an ally in its genocidal policy — Iran.”
“Iranian deadly drones, sent to Russia in hundreds, became a threat to our critical infrastructure,” he added. “That is how one terrorist has found the other. It is just a matter of time — when they will strike against your other allies, if we do not stop them now.”
I’m just trying to deal with the fact that a man with such an honest face would ever say anything that wasn’t true.
If you can’t trust Zelensky, who can you trust?
