But, that's just a bunch of big-shot blather, because Iran's nuclear program is only for energy, right?

As speculations over a possible strike on Iran's nuclear facilities grow, the Islamic Republic is exacerbating its rhetoric.

Deputy Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi on Friday warned Israel against mounting such an attack: "Any act by the Zionist regime against Iran will bring about its destruction."

Hezbollah, he added, "Is at the forefront of the fight against Israel and it is growing stronger by the day." ...


"Iran's warriors are ready and willing to wipe Israel off the map," he declared.
