. . . like it or not.
(Reuters) - Iran's Supreme Leader described as "stupid and idiotic" Western expectations for his country to curb its missile development, striking a defiant tone ahead of a fresh round of nuclear talks. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called on Iran's Revolutionary Guards to mass produce missiles and said the nuclear negotiations were not the place to discuss Tehran's defense program or to solve the problem of sanctions damaging the Iranian economy.
"They expect us to limit our missile program while they constantly threaten with military action," Khamenei was quoted as telling the IRNA news agency while on a visit to an aeronautics fair held by the Revolutionary Guards.Reuters story.
The only reason to have missiles that are capable of delivering nukes is . . . to deliver nukes.
How much more explicit can you get?
This isn't posturing for negotiations. This is a country that is hostile to the U.S., bent on destroying Israel, and will produce nuclear weapons. Sooner, rather than later.
And, they're on a mission from god. The math ought to be pretty obvious.
