Dont Let Your Mouth Write A Check Your Ass Cant Cash!

TEHRAN (BNW) Every time you turn around, they are trying to start a fight. Like a bully in school who nobody is messing with but he comes to school wanting to start a fight. Thats how it is with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of Iran. He and his henchman, that General Hassan Firouzabadi just keep some shit going, while talking all that smack. But, dont let your mouth write a check your ass cant cash!
Iran is dismissing the threat of sanctions as an after thought, and is now warning against any military steps against its nuclear program with a fight.
Making threatening warnings that it would hit back at Israel if attacked by Israel, Iran's military chief, General Firouzabadi said last week he would also target U.S. forces stationed in the Middle East if Washington attacked Iran.
"If America presents Iran with a serious threat and undertakes any measure against Iran, none of the American soldiers who are currently in the region would go back to America alive," Firouzabadi, was quoted as saying by the Fars news agency.
While speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a military ceremony, Firouzabadi said a strike on Iran would also put oil supplies at risk. U.S. troops are engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan, both of which border Iran.
Now, its the old threat oil again, "if America wants to have the region's oil and its markets then the region's markets would be taken away from America and the Muslims' control over oil would increase," he said, according to state broadcaster IRIB.
Iran's president, Ahmadinejad Lil ahmad for short, said last week he would not plead with opponents of Tehran's nuclear program in order to avoid sanctions while Russia and the United States said new measures might be necessary.
Lil ahmad, who last week called President Barack Obama a nuclear-armed "cowboy", said Iran would "try to make an opportunity out of sanctions" rather than change its stance to avoid them. Now, that was ugly!
"We do not welcome the idea of threat or sanctions, but we would never implore those who threaten us with sanctions to reverse their sanctions against us," he was quoted as saying by the official news agency IRNA.
Lil ahmad was speaking as Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed a nuclear arms reduction treaty in Prague. The two were "working together at the United Nations Security Council to pass strong sanctions on Iran," Obama said.
Medvedev said he was unhappy with Iran's stance over its nuclear program which the West believes is aimed at developing atomic weapons.
"Tehran is not reacting to a range of suggested constructive compromise agreements. We can't close our eyes to this. That is why I do not exclude that Security Council will have to examine this question again," Medvedev told reporters.
Obama is hoping to persuade Russia and China both Security Council veto holders to drop their traditional reluctance to the new sanctions.
His campaign is likely to continue next week when both Medvedev and Chinese President Hu Jintao attend a summit on nuclear security in Washington.
