Ahmadinejad Threatens U.S. With War 'Without Boundaries' - And Obama's Response

Iran's President Ahmadinejad had a revealing interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos in which he made no pretense about the fact that Iran was going to be a nuclear power with all that entails and that we had better get used to it.

He threatened the US with a war that "would know no boundaries" if Iran's nuclear facilities were attacked. "War is not just bombs." From that, you can pretty much impute that he's talking about interdicting the Persian Gulf oil flow and unleashing Hezbollah cells in the US.

Given that Iran has considered itself in a de facto war with the Great Satan for over thirty years and is helping out our enemies in Afghanistan and Iraq, Ahmadinejad is simply giving us fair warning not to retaliate.

When asked why Iran won't follow the dictates of the IAEA,Ahmadinejad replied that the non-aligned nations and the 57 member Organization of Islamic Conferences support Iran's position on its nuclear program.

In an unintentional bit of comedy, Stephanopuolos insisted on repeatedly asking Ahmadinejad whether Osama bin-Laden was in Iran.After Ahmadinejad quite correctly labeled the question as laughable and asked Stephanopoulos whether he was a serious journalist, Ahmadinejad replied, "No, I guarantee you he's in Washington."

Oh, and our president's response to all this? Essentially it's 'won't you be my friend?'

Israeli Defense Minister and former PM Ehud Barack, oddly enough has the right of it for once, on FOX news today: "“History will judge this [Obama] administration when it comes to the end of its term whether Iran has nuclear weapons or not.”

Indeed it will.
