Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei: Before Long Terrorist Will Have Access To Nuclear Weapons

Iran's Supreme Leader Predicts Terrorists Will Get Nukes

( - Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who as Iran's supreme leader is commander in chief of the Iranian military, predicted last week that terrorists would acquire nuclear weapons and "take away security from all the tyrants of the world."

In his speech at the tomb of his predecessor, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Khamenei made it clear that he understood America to be the leader among "the tyrants of the world."

Khamenei gave the speech to mark the 19th anniversary of the death of Ayatollah Khomeini, who died on June 3, 1989, ten years after he sparked a revolution in Iran that overthrew the regime of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, a U.S. ally, and instituted a Shiite Islamic theocracy.

Khamenei's speech was presented as a review of the lessons that Ayatollah Khomeini taught in his "last will and testament."

While predicting that terrorists would obtain nuclear weapons, Khamenei claimed Iran was not interested in obtaining nuclear weapons itself, but only wanted to develop nuclear energy.

A moment later he added, "Before long, the world's terrorists will have access to nuclear weapons and take away security from all the tyrants of the world and all the nations of the world."

At one point during Khamenei's speech, according to a translated transcript published by the BBC, the crowd at the mausoleum chanted: "Death to Israel." At other points, it chanted: "Palestine is victorious, Israel is defeated," and "Nuclear energy, our absolute right."

Khamenei's virulent attacks on Israel appeared to echo the rhetoric of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has said that "Israel should be wiped off the map."

What the heck are we waiting for in order to bomb the crap out of these Islamofascist fanatics? Maybe we're waiting for an Iranian nuke smuggled aboard a merchant vessel to go off in Los Angeles Harbor, kill millions of Americans, cripple the economy - and only after are we gonna understand these scumbags really mean it?
