IRAN CONFIDENT STUPID ISRAEL WON’T LAUNCH STUPID ATTACK LIKE STUPID HEADS
August 15 2012
Tehran, Iran – At the core of the current stalemate between Iran and most of the rest of the world is their constant lust for antagonizing everyone else. If Iran were not so confrontational, if it were not so aggressive against other countries having nuclear power would not really be an issue worthy of debate never mind war.
That is not the case though, Iran, for the last thirty years, has relied almost exclusively on antagonizing the majority of the world with the United States and Israel their preferred targets. That has, of course, resulted in those two nations being the most aggressive in trying to halt the Iranian nuclear program which of course makes perfect sense.
Now though Iran has stepped forward and made it clear that they do not believe that one of those countries, Israel, will actually act on its threats, presumably assuming they think like Iran itself does. In doing so, Iran kind of called Israel stupid which of course isn’t going endear them to anyone in that nation or really do much to prevent an attack from coming, stupid or not.
“Even if some officials in the illegitimate regime want to carry out such a stupid action, there are those inside (the Israeli government) who won't allow it because they know they would suffer very severe consequences from such an act,” said foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast.
He also said the threats were a sign of weakness from brainless leaders, all comments that surely aren;t going to make Israel less aggressive towards Iran.
Israeli officials responded to the comments by making it clear they planned to do everything they can to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. They said pretty much that exactly.
“I think that given how clearly Israel has stated that they are going to attack Iran if they get nuclear weapons, or even get close to getting them, they will probably do it. It’s hard to back down now after having gone so public with those comments and with this, with them publicly being called out like this, well they really don’t have much of a choice now,” said Scrape TV International analyst Gustav Hander. “I would say it was a dumb move by Iran to say these things but it probably doesn’t really affect anything. It’s not like they weren’t going to attack so the situation hasn’t really shifted at all.”
It’s not clear if Israeli officials are personally offended by the comments, though Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is said to be angry though he is usually angry on Wednesdays, well, really any weekday.
“I think given all the rhetoric and very clear statements that Israel has made about attacking Iran it is likely something they will do if it comes to it. Frankly they didn’t need this extra motivation but now that they have it, well, that pretty much ends the hemming and hawing over the whole thing,” continued Hander. “I doubt name-calling is enough to actually start a war but you never know. This could be the very thing Israel has been waiting for to go and blow Iran to smithereens and then force the U.S. to go in and do the hard work. Nice going Iran.”
Israel declined to call Iranian officials any bad names which was very mature of them.
