‘Laughable’ claims against Tehran by the world’s ‘schoolyard bully’


The United States’ accusations against Iran over “destabilizing” the Middle East are “laughable,” says a former Congressional staffer.

Rodney Martin made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Sunday, while commenting on new anti-Iran efforts underway in the US Congress.

Republican senators in control of US Congress are unveiling a new measure against Iran over its defensive missile program.
