This warning, along with an announcement that Iran would join the world's nuclear club within a month, raised the pitch of Iranian anti-US rhetoric to a new high Tuesday, April 13, as 47 world leaders gathered in Washington for President Barack Obama's Nuclear Security Summit. The statement published by Kayhan said: "If the US strikes Iran with nuclear weapons, there are elements which will respond with nuclear blasts in the centers of America's main cities." For the first time, debkafile's military sources report, Tehran indicated the possibility of passing nuclear devices to terrorists capable of striking inside the United States.

Debka is notorious for having sources that are less than credible, or coming up with stories that are on the very fringe of truth.

I wouldn't trust this to much.

Yeah might as well just nuke 'em. Good ol' USA.

Also might be worth posting an article from an actual news source.

This just a small taste of what's coming if the Iranian regime is allowed to get weaponized.

Today, the Congress is practically begged Obama to do something effective:
U.S. Congress urges Obama to impose 'crippling sanctions' on Iran - Haaretz - Israel News
"We urge you to join with those allies who are prepared for action to immediately impose crippling sanctions on Iran. Only such action on our part offers the prospect of persuading Tehran to turn away from its dangerous course," both letters read.

The letters were signed by over three-quarters of Congress with 363 signatures on the House letter and 76 signatures on the Senate letter.

"We urge you today to reaffirm boldly and unambiguously that the U.S. can and will prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability. We call on you to fulfill your June 2008 pledge that you would do 'everything in my power to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon," the letters read.


Obama continues to ignore them.

Never know, those folks can be unpredictable. Personally I'm all for pulling out of the Middle East altogether and letting them all deal with each other. The oil doesn't care who's drilling and it'll still be there when the smoke clears.
