Iran tells West to drop ‘bullying’ tone

Posted on March 11, 2012


“As God is my witness, the Iranian nation will not give a damn for (your) bombs, warships and planes,” he said in a televised speech in the city of Karaj west of Tehran.

“They say all (options) are on the table. Well, let them rot there. You yourself will rot,” he railed, in characteristically fiery language.

Ahmadinejad said the United States and its EU allies “should talk politely, and recognise the rights of (other) nations, and co-operate instead of showing teeth, and weapons and bombs.”

His words came as Iran and major world powers – the five UN Security Council permanent members and Germany – are poised to revive stalled talks amid high tensions over Tehran’s nuclear activities.


The United States in particular has repeated that “all options are on the table” when it comes to Iran, raising the spectre of military strikes against Iranian nuclear facilities.
