Iran's army commander has warned the United States and other Western powers not to make any "stupid move" over Tehran's nuclear work, and suggested they would be surprised by Iran's military response if they attacked.Haven't we had enough surprises? Can we possibly avoid one more?
Iran is embroiled in an escalating dispute over its uranium enrichment, which Iran says is for fuel for power generation but the West suspects is aimed at making nuclear bombs.
Armed forces chief Ataollah Salehi said Iran's military was stronger now than when Iran fought against Iraq in 1980-88.
"And if our bullying enemies make a stupid move, they will certainly be surprised," the daily Siyasat-e Rouz quoted him as saying on Friday.
There's still time for you to make a difference. Please phone Nancy Pelosi (202-225-0100) and your "elected" representatives (888-851-1879) and tell them not to let George Bush start another war without Congressional approval.
Then tell them not to grant such approval.
We've got too many wars going on already.
