"The president of Iran should remember that Iran can also be wiped off the map."

If you're not nervous about the price of oil, you should be. Israel isn't going to fuck around when it comes to letting Iran have the bomb. Shimon Peres made the above statement today as a little reminder that Iran is playing with fire.

I believe Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is just playing the North Korean nuke game, wherein they blackmail the international community into giving them stuff in exchange for being totally insane. With North Korea, this works quite well as South Korea doesn't want Seoul to become a burnt out shell of a city. But if you ask me, the middle east is a whole different ball game - Israel already has nuclear superiority and isn't going to let Iran join the atomic club. Period.
