'Iran can also be wiped off the map'

Vice Premier Shimon Peres said Monday that
"the president of Iran should remember that Iran can also be wiped off the map."


"Teheran is making a mockery of the international community's efforts to solve the crisis surrounding Iran's nuclear program," Peres told Reuters, adding that "Iran presents a danger to the entire world, not just to us."


Peres's vehement expressions came the same day that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wrote to US President George W. Bush proposing "new solutions" to their differences in the first letter from an Iranian leader to an American president in 27 years, Iranian government spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham said Monday.

Peres did not say who should act against Iran if it continues with its nuclear program, but implied military action should be led by the United States, pointing to the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Israeli officials have indicated that Israel would join any international operation against Iran.

Peres urged China and Russia to join Western efforts to impose sanctions on Iran. The two countries have been reluctant to back such proposals in the UN Security Council. If all world powers are united against Iran, military action can be avoided, Peres said.

"We can prevent all of this threat, without weapons, if there will be unity," Peres said, adding that the Security Council had to act on the matter. "If the crucial moment comes and they are incapable of taking [action] or making a policy...then they endanger their existence as an important world body," he said.

It's about time.

It's about time that Israel make it quite clear that yes, it's all fun and games until someone calls the bluff.

While I don't necessarily agree with Vice Premier Shimon Peres' suggestion that the US should lead an attack on Iran, it's good to know that Israel will be right there.

Fear the Moussad. You've got to respect this group that have consistently accomplished their missions quick and quietly. Alongside the British Special Forces, Iran wouldn't stand a chance. Add American Special Forces to the mix, and we'll be remapping that region. Would those surrounding countries like more territory?

The conflict for me about Iran is that the country and the leadership are two distinct entities. While we know that the president is pretty much the puppet of the Mullahs and find his politics quite distasteful, the general populace of Iran are actually open-minded and accepting of western culture and thought. THAT is what the leadership fears.

It's a shame to obliterate Persia and its rich culture because of bad leadership. But that very leadership is signing Iran's international death warrant.

The PEOPLE of Iran need to gain a foothold to prevent their demise at the hands of a megalomaniac.
