Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Monday his country would press on with its nuclear programme and was not afraid of pressure from the United States.
"The people and the officials are not scared of the political threats made by the powers in the service of oppression," Khamenei was quoted as saying by state television during a meeting with visiting Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
"Iran will never stop its nuclear programme, that is our red line," he said in comments that coincided with Iran's agreement to suspend, but not halt, its controversial work on the nuclear fuel cycle.
Khamenei, who has the final say on all matters of state, said the suspension agreement with Britain, France and Germany -- designed to prevent the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) from referring Iran to the UN Security Council -- "were carried out while respecting this red line".

And there's still a debate on what Iran wants and will continue to do?
For God's sakes, let's just bomb this stupid country and get it done. We all know that's where it's headed. Why wait? Muslims are simply incapable of co-existing peacefully. They have to be bombed into submission.
Next stop, Iran.
Just remember this quote the next time you hear a report from the MSM that Iran has agreed to stop it's nuke programs...

I don't understand why the international community will keep buying this bile pouring from Iran. It's the 1930's all over again!!
Field test the MOABs. Lets start with dropping 100. Then use the diamond tipped earth penetrators.
Any other suggestions? Would like to have it done prior to Christmas so that I can concentrate on my family over the holiday.
"Iran will never stop its nuclear programme, that is our red line,"
YOU CROSS THIS RED LINE YOU DIE!!!
You Cross This Red Line You Die!!
You cross this red line, you die!
Uh, you knock on my door, I'm not coming out.
Then perhaps we should stop it for them.
This has been noted in Israel. This is not the first threat of this sort from Iran.
Israel destroyed Saddams Nuclear facility in the 80's and don't be suprised to see them act preemptively to protect their population, again.
Iran has stated they would be happy to exchange Nuclear blasts with Israel. Because, as they see it, the Arab World can survive it, Israel can't.
Will Israel ever knowingly allowing that possibilty to occur?
...just my 2 cents is all
They'd better stock up on their potassium cloride.
Best possible scenario..the threat of a pre-emptive strike by Israel..coupled with a loud and clear statement buy Israel that IF a nuke is ever detonated in Israel..then Israel will respond against Iranian cities..might be enough to move the Iranians to overthrow the very unpopular mullahs..
Bomb them and if their programs are indeed under residential areas, issue a warning and then bomb and hold Iran responsible for the casualties. Let them talk all they want. This isn't John Kerry they're going to deal with. Force is all those beasts answer to.
only an ignorant fool would blame a entire religion for stupidity of a few within that religion. To bomb Iran would be the worst thing for America. You would be doing what the terrorist wanted. There would be a brand new wave of anti-American sentiment within the Muslim population around the world. America would have it's biggest fear recognized (a united Muslim population). Something that even America with all of it's military and economic might could not cope with.
