Iran to complain to UN over US 'threat'

If this weren't so sickening, I might even be able to laugh at it.
Iran will file a formal complaint with the UN against the United States after US President Barack Obama excluded Iran from a pledge not to use nuclear weapons against countries that do not have them, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said Sunday.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Obama's implicit threat to use nuclear weapons against Iran was a "threat to global peace and security," according to Iran's semiofficial Fars news agency.

Earlier Sunday, 222 lawmakers in Iran's 290-seat parliament called on the Iranian government to file the complaint.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say on all state matters, also said Obama's threatening language is proof that the US cannot be trusted.


ran's top leader, Khamenei, said the US president's remarks were "disgraceful."

"The US president has implicitly threatened the Iranian nation with nuclear weapons. These remarks are very strange. The world should not ignore it because in the 21st century ... the head of a state is threatening a nuclear attack. The US president's remarks are disgraceful," Khamenei said Sunday on state television.

"These remarks mean the US government is a villain government that can't be trusted," he said.
Can we please blow them back to the 8th century NOW?
