Iran Leader Vows to Resist 'Bully' Nations

From the AP via Yahoo! News:

TEHRAN, Iran -
Iran's president lashed out Wednesday at the United States and vowed to resist the pressure of "bully countries" as European nations circulated a draft resolution urging that Tehran be brought before the U.N. Security Council for its nuclear activities.

In a speech to thousands of supporters hours after President Bush's State of the Union address, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad derided the United States as a "hollow superpower" that is "tainted with the blood of nations" and said Tehran would continue its nuclear program.

"Nuclear energy is our right, and we will resist until this right is fully realized," Ahmadinejad told the crowd in the southern Iran city of Bushehr, the site of Iran's only nuclear power plant.


A three-year IAEA probe has not found firm evidence to back assertions by the United States and others that Iran's nuclear activities are a cover for an arms program but has not been able to dismiss such suspicions either.

(I don't have a link to the rest of this, sorry)

I feel like the only person alive who actually believes that Iran wants nuclear energy, not nuclear weapons. I believe that if we keep making all these accusations about Iran that aren't supported by any kind of evidence, maybe they will get The Bomb and nuke us. We're bringing on nuclear war when we tell people "You can't have those weapons, but we sure as hell can!"
