Cruise on over to Adventures of Chester and check out the always-thoughtful Chester's "Iran Extravaganza." Lots of exceptionally well reasoned thought in here, particularly on what the Iranian leadership means when it, as it frequently does, demands "respect" from the United States and the other western powers.
Meanwhile, AP reports that Iran's President, Mr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, had the following to say this morning on the subject of Israel's existence :
Like it or not, the Zionist regime is heading toward annihilation. . . The Zionist regime is a rotten, dried tree that will be eliminated by one storm.
Mad Jad went on to say that:
The existence of this (Israeli) regime is a permanent threat. . . [to the Middle East]. Its existence has harmed the dignity of Islamic nations.
Comment is quite superfluous, beyond saying that this man is vowing to terminate the existence of a member-state of the United Nations, and kill millions of people. Is anybody listening ?
