'The Dealbreakers': Funny Or Die Skewers Republican Iran Deal Reactions

"They're too old to fight a war, but that won't stop these brave U.S. senators from trying to start one with Iran."

Congressional Republicans aren't pleased with the historic Iran nuclear accord. As soon as the deal was announced on Tuesday, many war hawks condemned it for being too soft on Iran and claimed it would fuel more instability and violence in the Middle East.

In a video shared exclusively with HuffPost, Funny Or Die pokes fun at hawk senators threatening war with Iran, in a mock trailer for "The Dealbreakers," a parody of the movie "The Expendables."

"They're too old to fight a war, but that won't stop these brave U.S. senators from trying to start one with Iran," the announcer says in the video.

The parody also reminds viewers of another memorable time hawkish Republicans pushed for an ill-advised war.

"Last time, they started a war with Iraq because of weapons of mass destruction. This time, it's pretty much the same thing but with Iran. So it's totally different! Like, a whole letter different!"
