Iran Leader: U.S. To Attack Two Middle East Countries

While the Obama administration deals with fallout from the Afghanistan documents, Iran's leader is doing some saber-rattling. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told state-run television that the United States has "decided to attack at least two countries in the (Middle East) region in the next three months." He did not specify which ones.Neither the United States nor Israel has ruled out the possibility of a military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities, should international sanctions fail to dissuade Iran from seeking the means to make nuclear weapons. Iran denies seeking such weapons. Ahmadinejad has also mixed it up recently with Russia, saying its president, Dmitry Medvedev, has become a "mouthpiece" for Western interests. The Russian Foreign Affairs Ministry released a statement calling Ahmadinejad's remarks "absolutely unacceptable."
