Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei threatens the US....and the US says `we're misunderstood, honest!'

Iran's Supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei threatened today that Iran will target US interests around the world if attacked.

"(Iran's) enemies know well that any aggression will lead to a reaction from all sides in the Iranian nation on the aggressors and their interests around the world," state television quoted Khamenei as saying.

"We believe that no one will make such an unwise and wrong move (to attack Iran) that would endanger their country and interests," Khamenei said.

"Some say that the US president is not the type who acts based on calculations or thinks about the consequences of his action. But even these people can be brought to their senses."

This comes a day after iran test fired some of those new missiles they got from our `friends' the Russians, and conducted war games in the Persian Gulf.

So what was our official response to this pissant?

"I've said it, the secretary of defence has said it, the president has said it: We're not invading Iran," White House spokesman Tony Snow said. "(Khamenei is) spinning a hypothetical about something that is not contemplated."

Gordon Johndroe, spokesman for the US National Security Council weighed in as well: "Khamenei from time to time makes these unprovoked statements and we would certainly hope they are not directed at the United States because US President George W. Bush has made it clear we have no intention of going to war with Iran."

Oooooh , please Mr. Mullah..don't worry, we plan to play nice!

A better response would have been to ignore him...or just to stomp on these cockroaches once and for all. We'd be doing humanity and ourselves a huge favor.

We'll have to do it sooner or later anyway.

Same old drivel. If they really wanted to endanger our interests, they would have already done so. This is merely bluster.

Hi Guys,

Louie, the Ayatollah was talking about the US endangering American interests, I believe.

That aside, Iran does indeed have interests.They regard themselves as the world leaders in jihad, fated to expand true Islam (the Shiite version)to dar harb and facilitate the return of the Hidden Imam.

One should never underestimate the fanaticism and singlemindedness of these people.One can simply not assess them by Western standards.

Read this, as a reminder if you haven't already...and pay particular attention to the remarks about the Shiite `Twelver' sect that dominates Iran:

J O S H U A P U N D I T: Time to do the mullah dance

Harrison, you are exactly correct...Iran is already doing whatever it can to attack our interests. However, the Iranian message was intended for the EU and certain members of the US congress, and in that, I'm sure it reached the intended recipiants.

BTW, I'd like to link to your stuff more and communicate directly with you, but can't find an e-mail for you on your site.

Please send me an e-mail at the address found in my profile, if you'd like.
