Iranian President Hassan Rouhani threatened on Sunday to use his country’s missile system against the enemies of the Islamic Republic.
“Iran has used its missiles [in the past] and will use them in the future to defend itself,” Rouhani told participants at the 27th annual Kharazmi Festival, named after the famed Persian mathematician, according to Fars New Agency.
As the world focused its attention on the conflict brewing in Ukraine and away from the Iranian nuclear crisis, other regime officials warned that Iran is not Ukraine, that it will not allow the Iranian people to rise up against the regime the way Ukrainians rose up and ousted its leader, Viktor Yanukovych.
Rouhani also criticized the West for terrorism and assassination of its nuclear scientists and the brains behind its missile program.
“During the era when Iran and Muslim scholars were the leaders of science, they without hesitation shared it with others. The Western world… before the Renaissance saw the light of knowledge of this land and utilized it [for its own progress],” Rouhani said. “However, we now see that the industrialized countries… see [progress in science] as their prerogative to the level that they allow their intelligence services to assassinate scientists of this country.”
Rouhani boasted that Iranian scientific progress will move faster than before.
The middle east needs a new parking lot, Iran would be PERFECT!
Good idea ! Free Parking when going to Isreal !
three of a kind.
You'll either have to wait for a different president with courage is in office or continue to run and hide like we are doing now.
I really hope he can hide us all well because I really do fear what CAN happen to millions of Americans with this dolt. Along with the 72 virgins, which Obama could care less about, is there a golf course, too??
I cannot figure out for the life of me ? Why any man would want to spend an eternity with 72 women whether virgin or not a good number of them are going to be on the rag at the same time ! All I can say is they had better pray to their Allah that there is a golf course ! I raised five girls and having six women under one roof is just way to much estrogen in one place !
The only time I remember Iranian scholars being leaders in science was about 800 BC.
I think the Nobel prize system has a liberal stench to it, but feel free to compare the Iranian awards with the Israeli awards. Kinda stunning huh?
Time for Israel to take them out.
Obumo's pix is a photo op.... Valerie Jarrett does not let him talk on a real phone that is connected.
Perhaps Obama should get one of those pink princess play phones to go with the pink crayon he now uses to draw the line in the sand. It's not a red line anymore, according to Ollie North (a REAL man!)
