Hello, World

Let's review the past 24 hours:

Iran (President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad): Israel should be "wiped off the map."
Israel (Vice Prime Minister Shimon Peres): Iran should be expelled from the UN.
Iran (Ahmadinejad): "And God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world without the United States and Zionism."

Happy Thursday, everybody!

Just wait 'til they have nukes...

I hear Kofi Annan will be visiting Iran, I can only imagine the exchange:

Annan: WTF?
Ahmadinejad: Yeah, sorry about that photo, I meant to extend my arm out more forward, palm tipped slightly down...

Tony Blair echoes your concerns. From CNN:

One of the strongest reactions to Ahmadinejad's remarks came from British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who said they were "completely and totally unacceptable."

"I felt a real sense of revulsion at those remarks," said Blair, who spoke Thursday at a press briefing after a European Union summit near London.

"There has been a long time in which I've been answering questions on Iran with everyone saying to me 'tell us you're not going to do anything about Iran,'" he said.

"If they carry on like this, the question people are going to be asking us is, 'When are you going to do something about this,' because you imagine a state like that with an attitude like that having a nuclear weapon."

I can't speak to the veracity of these details surrounding the speech, but they've been linked to by a reputable site.

Warning: It'll give ya chills.
