Says America
Will Regret
To Halt

So, now they are threatening us:

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Influential former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani on Wednesday dismissed as futile any move to slap sanctions on Iran for its nuclear fuel program, which the West suspects is aimed at developing bombs.

Iran removed UN seals at uranium enrichment research facilities on Tuesday and announced it would resume "research and development" on producing uranium fuel, prompting angry reactions from Washington, the European Union and Russia.

The foreign ministers of Germany, France and Britain will meet in Berlin on Thursday to discuss the crisis caused by Iran's move to reactivate a nuclear fuel program mothballed under a November 2004 deal with the EU trio.

Iran's action had sent shockwaves through oil markets on Tuesday, helping push up the price of crude for a while.

"Adopting harsh measures like imposing sanctions cannot bring about the desired outcome," Rafsanjani said at Tehran University in a sermon to mark the Muslim Eid al-Adha festival.

"We will stand by our right to nuclear technology. They will regret creating any problems for us," he told worshippers, without elaborating.

Europe is shaking in their boots. America is grinding it's teeth and clutching it's fists, and Russia and China are laughing silently to themselves, as they triangulate a world war against us, without having to life a finger.
