President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has proclaimed that Iran is the ''most powerful nation'' in the world as the country's air force boasted of its prowess at a time of mounting tension with the West.
''Iran is the most powerful and independent nation in the world,'' Ahmadinejad told a military parade outside Tehran marking the Islamic republic's annual army day.
Ahmadinejad described Iran as ''peace-loving'' but said the army and elite Revolutionary Guards would ''react strongly to the slightest aggression'' against its soil.
''I am proud to announce today that the Iranian nation's power is of an extent that no major power can dare jeopardize the security and interests of the Iranian nation,'' said Ahmadinejad.
''The Iranian nation with its courageous army will defend its interests with all strength,'' he added.
If the US decides to take the gloves off then it's gonna be real this time and no more PR.
You remind me of all the posters who say 'the Iranians are a real proud people they aint gonna run away like the Arabs.'
If China and Russia are given their share then Iran will be mushy peas before November and it's time to do with them what we did with the Nazis kids.........long term re education
www.opednews.com | Behind the Drums of War with Iran: Nuclear Weapons or Compound Interest?
On October 25, 2007, the United States announced harsh new penalties on the Iranian military and its state-owned banking systems. Sanctions, bellicose rhetoric and the implicit threat of military action are goads for another war, one that critics fear is more likely to ignite a nuclear holocaust than prevent one. The question is, why is Iran considered such a serious threat? The official explanation is that it is planning to develop nuclear weapons. But the head of the UN watchdog agency IAEA says he has "no concrete evidence" of an Iranian weapons program.1 And even if there were one, a number of countries have tested or possess nuclear weapons outside the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, including Pakistan, North Korea, India, and probably Israel; yet we don't consider that grounds for military action. Iran would just be joining a long list of nuclear powers.
Compound interest is the secret weapon that has allowed a global banking cartel to control most of the resources of the world.
...It is this debt scheme, with its lethal weapon of interest compounded annually, that has allowed a small clique of financiers to dominate the business of the world...
...The key to the bankers' success was that they would control and manipulate the money systems of the world while letting them appear to be controlled by governments.

Wikipedia | Axis of Evil
"Axis of evil" was a term used by United States President George W. Bush in his State of the Union Address on January 29, 2002 in order to describe governments that he accused of helping terrorism and seeking weapons of mass destruction. Bush named Iraq, Iran, and North Korea in his speech. Bush's presidency has been marked by this notion as a justification for his War on Terrorism.
