Iran Supreme Leader Threatens US, Israel

Countdown to Conflict ...

The atomic ayatollah warned Friday that Iran will retaliate against the United States over Western-backed oil sanctions and threats of attack against Iran over its nuclear program, hinting at possible Iranian strikes against the U.S. homeland. The Supreme Leader also said Iran would help any nation or group to destroy Israel, which he described as a "cancerous tumor" that must be cut out of the Middle East.

Read the news reports here and here--further proof that diplomacy and sanctions have failed to stop Iran's atomic advance, and that in appeasing and attempting to align with Iran (so-called engagement) the United States has made war with the Islamist nation inevitable. The key question is if the war will be fought on Iranian or on U.S. terms.
