Ahmadinejad: 'We love death'

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told France 24 on Wednesday that he is not afraid of an attack by Israel.
He said that only Israel wants to attack Iran, but that the West does not and if the "Zionist regime" does not "attack Iran, there is no problem."

Israeli officials have hinted at the possibility of an airstrike against Iran's nuclear program if ongoing negotiations between Iran and western powers do not lead to a deal which includes Iran ceasing all uranium enrichment.

Ahmadinejad hit back at demands that Iran cease enriching uranium to 20 percent, claiming that 20% enriched uranium was no more threatening than 3.5% enriched uranium.

He posed a question to the West as to why it was pressuring Iran about 20% enriched uranium when western nations already have the atom bomb. In that light Ahmadinejad asked "who is more dangerous," Iran or the West?

He noted that the West had started most of history's wars and that Iran should be complaining about the West's insults.

Ahmadinejad pointed out that Iran has a right under international law to enrich uranium to 20%, which benefits Iran separately from the issue of weapons. If any party wishes Iran "not to have the benefit" of 20% enriched uranium, "they must explain why," said Ahmadinejad.

Ahmadinejad also stated that Iran always can "inspire fear in its enemies" and knows how to deal with any threat.
What could go wrong?
