A powerful Iranian cleric told Tehran’s Friday prayers worshippers the Islamic Republic was unwavering in its nuclear venture and unafraid of international sanctions.

“We mustn’t be afraid of sanctions. Even though there is a loss, it also has benefits. We should not fear the losses”, Guardian Council chief Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati said.

“If we have made any headway these days, it is because of these sanctions against us. Otherwise, we would be like these Arab countries, who have to import everything”, Jannati said.

“If we fear sanctions then we will have to accept submission”, Jannati said.

The powerful cleric, who is a trusted confidant of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, accused the European trio of Britain, France and Germany of having cheated Iran during the nuclear talks. He said what the U.S. and European were saying on Iran’s nuclear program “doesn’t make sense in any logic”.

The IAEA board of governors has adopted a resolution that would refer Iran’s nuclear file to the United Nations Security Council for possible sanctions.

Wow. How brave. They have to tell us they are {mostly) unafraid of .....................sanctions.

"Bring it on" will include a MASSIVE strategic first strike against ALL Iranian communications, command and control, military hardware, troops, and civilian infrastructure.

"Bring it on" will make shock and awe look really really limp.

So, I agree. Bring it on!!!

It's always fun when imam's try to sound American. I think he's inviting us to a cheering competition...

I wonder what is farsi for "booty call?"

powerful iranian clerics....

likely he took his viagra before the speech. is it too early to call him tehran ted?

"americans are cowering in fear and running from our holy soldiers by the millions! there are no tomahawk missiles striking that building behind me! you can still see this tv broadcast because the infidels were too stupid to attack our communications infrastructure!"

what exactly are we waiting for here? an invitation? well, they just gave us one, apparently.

He may have a point. 13 years of U.N. sanctions against Iraq accomplished nothing.... except making some U.N. officials a little richer.

Interment camps or deportation for all muslims in the USA.

Never let the fox into the hen house and expect blind loyalty to America.

The Mecca needs to be glassed over with all it's followers. Our spineless politicians endanger all patriotic Americans.

My God can stomp your allah's camel smelling ass.

Let the muslims play the role of a fool and see how a nuked mecca thrives.

Fix Bayonets,
NSNR-WNNMADS

I don't think that deportation and internment camp is fair. We have several pro-US Muslims on FR who are Republican and active. Above noted.

It wouldn't take as long as Iraq since we already have assests in the area to deal with them (on 3 sides - Iraq, Afghanistan, & the gulf).

Sanctions are for the UN.

Of course they shouldn't be afraid of them, after all how many UN sanctions did it take before action against them by Saddam did it take?

I was just stating that there isn't any buildup necessary to do the job, not even need for an invasion they'd crumble within a week....maybe a prolonged "shock & awe" air campaign as new targets arise.

Since the want nukes so badly, I say give them to them....but we choose the delivery method (turning Tehran into a glowing ash heap). Then repeat as necessary over DUmascus.

I said it before and I'll say it again:Iran is the most dangerous country in the world!!!!

And Iran doesn't just shelter islamic radicals--it runs its own gangs of islamic subversives and terrorists--in Iraq, the Holy Land, Lebanon, "Bosnia", Western Europe, here in America, and probably in other places I don't know about!! And it has its stooges in high places here and in Europe who say that "we can do business with Iran". Iran and its thugs and stooges must be stopped!!!!

Morning Freedom44,
When it comes to America's national security and well being, fairness goes out the back door with the rest of the P.C. garbage.

"A muslim is a muslim is a muslim" and loyal to only other muslims(infidels not included). Wake up before you invite the enemy to dinner and wind up with your throat slit in the name of "allah."

P.S. Algier Hiss was a real American and non-communist right????????????????

Wake Up Smell The Coffee,

Morning WF,
I believe you are correct and Israel would be right in doing so.

There can never be peace when the enemy always has a clenched fist(muslims).

Too bad, we cannot amend the US Constitution so Benjamin Netanyahu could run for the POTUS.

This muslim problem would diasppear in a nano-second along with a glassed over mecca.

All those "give peace a chance" weannies should see the muslims for what they really are.(Our Indefinite Enemies)

Nuke them till they glow like lava on the flow,
NSNR-CSAOTL

I just read an article about the Iranian stock market being down 30%. With the majority of people being under 30 years of age (and loving capitalism)in this terrorist country, I suspect it won't belong before the raghead mullahs are removed from power (from within).

Oh boy, cowardly Europe might finally have to do something about the hoards of Islamos that have taken over their countries. Especially since the Iranian mullahs have stirred the pot and have now branded Europe as traitors.

Which would be a favorable outcome.

We should not understimate the fondness for Americans
that still exists among Iranians according to those
I have talked to who actually travel there.

Yes, It is like WWII. We want to live in peace with our neighbors, however we were faced with an enemy that wanted our total and complete destruction. They made it clear that their was no reason or logic for their hate. At that point we have to say to ourselves,"regardless of how wrong their idiology is they can kill us just as dead, so we must end this with their blood". So we put down the olive branch with regret and pick up the quiver of arrows. Once we do that, we will not put them down till there is no one else to threaten our peace. Only at that point will we pick up the olive branch again.

I feel we havent gotten to that point, since we show restraint every day, and our enemy uses every resource he has to destroy us every day. They do not see that we have the resources and the means to scrape them from the face of the earth and salt the feilds of their culture. All we lack is the will, and with every attack they hand us a little more of that will. At some point, and no one knows when that point is the scales tip, and our will is complete. There will be no mercy, no restraint, no forgiveness. Just their death. Then ..... only then we will have peace.

"any logic"!?! As if his logic extends beyond spiritual certitude articulated by none other than the Supreme Leader himself. In Iran, the Supreme Leader is the official source of all sense. How could he or any of his assistants be wrong? If an Iranian citizen suggests the Supreme Leader is wrong, said Iranian is an enemy of the state, un-Islamic and subject to severe punishment... Thus, Iran is not fertile ground for "any logic". Very sad indeed...

Evening Walkingfeather,
There is much truth in your words, and until their total destruction, peace is out of the question.

Diplomacy with terrorists results in more deaths of innocent Americans.

May my arrow fly straight into thine enemies dark heart,
