Tehran- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday insisted that there was no chance of a military attack by the United States against Iran was. "The US is neither in a position nor does it have the capability to attack Iran," Ahmadinejad said in a live interview on state television network IRIB. "The threats are only a psychological war for creating an atmosphere of fear and tension and intimidating the nation."
There is growing concern within Iranian society that the US might attack Iran due to its defiance of the United Nations Security Council resolution 1737 and refusal to suspend uranium enrichment.
According to the local opposition, Ahmadinejad and his government were underestimating the US threats, especially the US announced deployment of the aircraft carrier USS Stennis in the Persian Gulf.
"What can one carrier do? Iran is not just a spot in the region to be destroyed by a carrier," the president said.
Ahmadinejad said that due to Washington's continuation of wrong policies in Iraq, the US would remain in that country and not start another war.

This, I believe, is going to seem antagonistic to Tehran and cause further posturing and confrontation between the US and Iran.

Absolutly nothing new is going to happen at all as a result of this. Prove me wrong people, prove me wrong. Please do not forget that for the past year and a half at LEAST there were allegations that Iran was going to be attacked within the next couple of months, weeks, days etc etc. It is not going to happen.
Iran will continue doing whatever it is that they do, and so will we.
