Iran: We’re not seeking nuclear weapons, but the US couldn’t stop us if we were

The ayatollah of Iran has some threatening words for the US, wrapped in an assurance that his country wants nothing but peace.

from ABC News:

Iran’s Supreme Leader said Saturday that his country was not seeking nuclear weapons, but that if Tehran intended to build them, the U.S. couldn’t stop it.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say on all state matters in Iran, also rejected direct talks with the U.S. over its nuclear program despite the pressure of sanctions.

"We believe nuclear weapons must be abolished and we have no intention of building" such weaponry, Khamenei said in remarks posted on his website, leader.ir. But he added: "If Iran had the intention to build nuclear weapons, the U.S. could in no way stop the Iranian nation."

Perhaps we would believe the Ayatolla if he hadn’t already said that he wants to see the destruction of Israel and US.
