Iran Defiance No-Brainer, US to Blame
Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmedinejad is as defiant as ever and the US only has itself to blame.
"We know they [the US and its allies] are waiting for us to retreat an inch so that they use that [against us]," the official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted him as saying.
"Today, our situation has changed completely. We are a nuclear country and speak to others from the position of a nuclear country. We won't hold talks with anyone about the right of Iranian nation [to enrich uranium] and no one has the right to retreat, even one iota."
"When a people masters nuclear technology and nuclear fuel, nothing can be done against them," said an Iranian general, Hassan Firouzabadi. "The West can do nothing and is obliged to extend to us the hand of friendship."Meanwhile, North Korea and Pakistan vow to continue building their arsenals.
Ahmedinejad's defiance is a no brainer. Iraq, no WMD --> invaded, destroyed, occupied. India, Pakistan, and North Korea each with WMD --> either courted or ignored.
"We will only increase our protective measures while the talks are delayed," said North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan.
And Pakistan worried about a nuclear cooperation deal between rival India and the US, announced it would maintain a "credible nuclear deterrent" for its security.
But, the US wants us to believe that Ahmedinejad is behaving irrationally and that he must be stopped.
The US is playing psychological games and Ahmedinejad knows it. Bush and Cheney must be thrown out of office before they go ahead with what they've been planning for years.
