EDITOR’S COMMENT: Do these comments sound to you like the comments of someone that you would want to negotiate anything, never mind a disastrous nuclear weapons deal with? And, don’t ignore his comments that Iran will have nothing to with the “Great Satan’, the United States, in the future. Wasn’t the likelihood of future agreements and potential trade agreements with Iran a main reason for ‘reaching out’ to Iran in the beginning. Now, it looks like most, if not all, of the trade will go to other western countries, and not the U.S. Nice going, Mr. President. As I’ve mentioned many times, you really do have to wonder which country President Obama believes he is representing, if any!

Israel will not survive the next 25 years, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday, making a series of threatening remarks published online.
In a quote posted to Twitter by Khamenei’s official account, Khamenei addresses Israel, saying, “You will not see next 25 years,” and adds that the Jewish state will be hounded until it is destroyed.
The quote comes against a backdrop of a photograph apparently showing the Iranian leader walking on an Israeli flag painted on a sidewalk.
Khamenei’s statements also reaffirmed his view that the US is a “Great Satan” and that there would be no detente with Washington beyond the nuclear talks.
“We approved talks with the United States about [the] nuclear issue specifically. We have not allowed talks with the US in other fields and we [do] not negotiate with them,” Khamenei said in statements published on his website.
Khamenei is quoted as saying any other talks would be “a tool for penetration and imposing their demands.”
On Twitter, Khamenei said talks with the US were a “means of infiltration and imposition of their wills.” (my emphasis)
