Scary Stuff

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has openly called for Israel to be wiped off the map. "The establishment of the Zionist regime was a move by the world oppressor against the Islamic world," the president told a conference in Tehran on Wednesday, entitled The World without Zionism. "

The skirmishes in the occupied land are part of a war of destiny. The outcome of hundreds of years of war will be defined in Palestinian land," he said.

"As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map," said Ahmadinejad, referring to Iran's revolutionary leader Ayat Allah Khomeini.

The Palestinians are worry anough, but is Iran going to really start giving trouble now too? I know it is nothing new, but Iran's newest leader seems more eager to see war than previous ones. And then they've got the nuclear potential to boot.

Hmmm...

Do you think Iran would take that sitting down like Iraq did? Iran has some serious means of retaliation. It could start off a whole new war in the region.
