Ahmadinejad: Iran ‘Ready to Defend’

Another General Assembly means more crazy comments from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. While speaking to reporters in New York, Iran’s president laughed off the possibility of an Israeli attack on Iran, saying that Iran will not be damaged by “foreign bombs” and that “while we are ready to defend ourselves, we do not take such threats seriously.” Emphasizing that Iran has been around for thousands of years, Ahmadinejad added: “We don’t even count them as any part of the equation for Iran. During a historical phase, they represent minimal disturbances that come into the picture and are then eliminated.”
