President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday the West has failed to break Iran's will in the nuclear standoff, days after world powers presented Tehran with a new offer aimed at ending the crisis.
"In the nuclear issue, the bullying powers have used up all their capabilities but could not break the will of the Iranian nation," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by state television.
...Iran's ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency Ali Asghar Soltanieh ruled out on Wednesday that the country could freeze enrichment, saying: "Iran will never submit to such an illegal act.
Iran is not going to peaceably stop. That is what they are saying. That is what they have been saying since the beginning. As crazy as I believe Ahmadinejad to be, I think he means exactly what he is saying here.
This time it was not sanctions. They tried to bribe Iran into submission with money and technology. So you see, we have went from standing up to Iran with sanctions to trying to appease Iran with money. Whats next? Crawling around on our hands and knees begging him to stop?
Don't you think it is time for our elected leaders to lead? I sure as hell do.
