Khamenei Takes Control, Forbids Nuclear Bomb

Early returns in Iran’s 9th parliamentary election since the 1979 revolution show that Ahmadinejad’s lay populists have taken a drubbing, and that hard line supporters of clerical Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei are ascendant. Ahmadinejad’s sister, Parvin, who stood for election from their own hometown of Garmsar, was defeated, a major blow to the president.



Western reporters keep saying that the parliamentary results have no implication for Iran’s nuclear program. But they only say this because they either don’t pay attention to what Iranian leaders actually say, or discount their statements as lies (treating them much less respectfully than they treated notorious fraud Andrew Breitbart in their fluffy obituaries last week).



A week and a half ago, Khamenei gave a major foreign policy speech

      It's been clarified numerous times. Khomeini said of Israel, 'the occupying regime will be wiped off the map'. It's a throw-away prediction in the context of the occupation of Palestine, not an objective. Iran funds 'terrorism' in exactly the same strategic way America always has - why ignore that? America essentially modernised and mobilised the mujahideen against the Soviets.

      Don't get high and mighty about funding terrorism.. Jesus Christ. Iran is an Islamic Republic because we fun More..

  • It is nice to know what some leaders say, but it is what they do that really matters. After all they are ALL politicians of one stripe or another.

  • Well, this pretty much wraps it up. Iran is not trying to get nukes, they are not supplying weapons to people that kill American troops, they are not in cahoots with the Syrian regime as they kill civilians, and they are the nicest human beings in the Middle East. Khamenei said so, so it MUST be the truth. Everyone can sleep well now, especially Israelis.

      What evidence do you have to prove Iran is even attempting to build nuclear weapons....yeah, that's right, just silence.

      Going from civilian nuclear energy to an actual nuclear weapon can never go undetected....Mossad even came to the conclusion that Iran has never even came to a decesion to even owning nukes. Keep listening to the liars on Fox News and Rush Limpballs.

      Most of the barbarism I'm seeing in the Middle East these days are coming from the Americans and the Israelis. More..

    • @TalkingMonkey Indeed the Israeli and American intelligence agencies conclude Iran IS NOT BUILDING nuclear weapons.

  • Pretty simple, really. Open up your "peaceful" nuke program to Western inspectors completely, and show that you are not lying. Problem solved. Until that happens, you better be prepared for an attack from Israel, the U.S., or both.
