After countless threats against the US (remember Iran's "strategy... for the destruction of Anglo-Saxon civilization"?), Tehran's saber-rattling hit another new low this week. According to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), the "Zionist regime's allies" will receive a "response" on October 12th.
In homicidal-midget-speak, that's a threat.
|Supporters of the Zionist regime will receive their response during the world Qods Day's rallies, government spokesman, Gholam-Hossein Elham, said Wednesday.|
The spokesman made the remarks during his weekly press conference while commenting on the current visit to the occupied Palestine of the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Qods Day is held each year on the last Friday of Muslims fasting month of Ramadan after it was nominated by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, as a day to voice the protest of the Islamic Ummah against the Zionists... The day falls on October 12 this year...
"The US loses all opportunities to cooperate with regional and other world states by trying to support a regime (the Zionist regime) which is now at its weakest political and social position," Elham said...
[warning that US] insistence on its wrong policies and arrogant approaches would have no result "but further political disgrace" for itself.
Referring to the approaching World Qods Day, the spokesman stressed, "Supporters of the Zionist regime will definitely receive the final response for their support on that day."
When asked about Ahmedinejad's remarks, Vice President Dick Cheney said "watch this..." and directed visitors' attention to a large plasma screen hanging on the wall. He then unlocked a compartment on his desktop, which exposed a prominent red button. Without fanfare, he pressed the button and a distinct click was heard.
"No, that's what I call a 'final response,'" Cheney was quoted as saying.
