Iran defiant in facew of more sanctions.

Oh that’s nice.  An emerging nuclear power declaring enemies.

Tehran, Iran (AHN) – Notwithstanding the
prospectus of a third round U.N. sanctions, Iran Thursday reiterated
its decision to continue with the nuclear program which would help it
become a world power.

Addressing group of Revolutionary Guards,
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, “The enemy wants Iran to
surrender so it won’t have any say in the world. If we stop for a
while, they will achieve their goals.”

Ahmadinejad said by
thwarting his country’s exploitation of “peaceful nuclear technology,”
the enemies try to strike at the source of “Iran’s progress.”

Ahmadinejad
statement comes at a time when the U.S. and its allies are mounting
pressure on the U.N. Security Council to impose tougher sanctions on
Iran in the wake of the U.N. nuclear watchdog report earlier this week
that Iran has made significant progress in its uranium enrichment
program.

Though Iran insists the enrichment is for power
generation, the scale of the program has cast suspicion among Western
countries that it could lead to produce weapon-grade material.

Iran has already come under two rounds of sanctions by the U.N. for defying its order that Iran halt its enrichment program.

  1. I think it’s an interesting question to pose: perhaps the mollahs can hold out against sanctions and develop nukes, but will the Iranian people tolerate it? Could they actually mount some kind of resistance against them? Let’s hope so.
