Tom Cotton, the infamous mastermind behind the 47 senators’ letter to Iran, showed just how idiotic his knowledge of foreign affairs. On Face the Nation, Cotton said that Iran must be stopped because of its growing control in the region. For example, Cotton offered, they already control Tehran.

Allow me to illuminate this point for Mr. Cotton. Tehran is the capital of Iran. This would be like saying that something must be done about the United States because it is exerting considerable control over Washington D.C. (if we could be so lucky).
