Iran Threatens US Publicly
Iran's response to the US successful efforts in placing the Iranian nuclear build-up on the UN Security Council's agenda:
"The United States has the power to cause harm and pain," said a statement delivered by the Iranian delegation. "But the United States is also susceptible to harm and pain. So if that is the path that the U.S. wishes to choose, let the ball roll."
The statement did not elaborate on what Iran meant by "harm and pain," and Iranian officials were not immediately available to comment.
Iran likely has support from Russia and China anyway. But we have a clear published threat by a burgeoning nuclear power. Appeasers, please state your names!
Meanwhile, Israel (the likely target of such an attack) says it will not sit back and wait to be hit.
