Jerusalem Post: 'Iran can also be wiped off the map,' Peres Says

Recalling Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's repeated threats regarding the destruction of Israel, Simon Peres reminded Tehran today that Iran, too, can "be wiped off the map."

Apparently not confident that Indonesia's support is enough to change world opinion, Iran's president has written a letter to George W. Bush with "new solutions" for the burgeoning crisis. The letter comes even as Russia, a key ally of Tehran, faces lingering human rights questions and lacks the Western credibility Iran needs to avoid further censure or armed military conflict. "Dear Crusader Bush," I imagine the letter saying, "please wait just a little while longer. After all, you in the West gave Iraq over 10 years to violate international agreements, hide true intentions and ship incriminating evidence off to friendly regimes. We're only asking for equal treatment." Or maybe he's calling for detente.
