Looks like Iran may very well have something up its sleeve. This is the second threat made by Iran concerning the upcoming anniversary of the Iranian revolution. This time the threat comes from the Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Monday that Iran is set to deliver a "punch" that will stun world powers during this week's 31st anniversary of the Islamic revolution.
"The Iranian nation, with its unity and God's grace, will punch the arrogance (Western powers) on the 22nd of Bahman (February 11) in a way that will leave them stunned," Khamenei, who is also Iran's commander-in-chief, told a gathering of air force personnel.
The country's top cleric was marking the occasion when Iran's air force gave its support to revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, a key event which led to the toppling of the US-backed shah on February 11, 1979.
His comments came as Iran said it would begin to produce higher enriched uranium from Tuesday, in defiance of Western powers trying to ensure the country's nuclear drive is peaceful. [MORE]
It seems like Iran maybe doing more than just boasting. It was one thing when Ahmadinejad made his threat, but now to have it echoed similarly by the Ayatollah seems like more of a certainty. I would not be surprised if they test a nuke on that day. This would certainly stun the world because nobody thinks they are that far along in development. It would also mean the world has entered a very dangerous phase in history.
