Iran's flawed logic

"We think it would be unlikely the Americans would take the decision to get themselves into a new fiasco, the consequences of which they themselves have acknowledged would be painful for the region and the world...We hope those who think better in America view the realities more closely and manage to correct such approaches."

On the surface the above statement from the Iranian Foreign Ministry would seem to be entirely sensible and on point assuming, of course, that they were dealing with rational human beings. The problem with it is that it fails to take into account who is still "running" the US government and will continue to do so for the next 267 days!
