Iran warns US of harm and pain in N-dispute
Iran threatened the US with "harm and pain" on Wednesday as the dispute over Tehran's nuclear programme moved to the United Nations Security Council â€“ an outcome the Islamic republic had fought to avoid.
A war of words at the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN's nuclear watchdog, highlighted growing tensions after Washington and the European Union dismissed a push for a compromise this week.
The IAEA board on Wednesday ended its discussions on Iran without agreement â€“ a move that automatically sends the file to the Security Council in New York, which could discuss the topic as early as next week.
Ali-Asghar Soltanieh, Iran's ambassador to the agency, told the meeting: "The US has the power to cause harm and pain. But the US is also susceptible to harm and pain. So if that is the path that the US wishes to choose, let the ball roll."
Oh FFS :roll:
Why can't they just have a big wire cage and duke it out in there?
This would be pathetic if it wasn't so bloody dangerous.
