Rhetoric from Iran getting old, will somebody bomb them already?

For the eleventyteenth time, Ahmadinejad spews forth his venom and calls for the death of Jews and the destruction of Israel.  This is like a "Groundhog Day" Thanksgiving dinner where I have to listen to Uncle Dwayne retell the story of how he invented the tampon.  Interesting the first dozen times but quite boring after the 13th. 

The important thing to remember is that no matter what, Iran and Ahmadinejad will tell us exactly what they want to do.  If we listen, we may save our butts.

Or not.

Iran's Ahmadinejad: No Place for Israel in Region

TEHRAN, Iran – The Iranian president said on Friday there will be no room for Israel in the region after the formation of a Palestinian state, and that once the state is established, the liberation of all Palestinian lands should follow.
The comments by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reflected his typical anti-Israeli rhetoric, which has drawn international condemnation since he first said in 2005 that Israel should be "wiped off the map."
Ahmadinejad spoke at a Tehran ceremony following nationwide pro-Palestinian rallies marking Quds Day. Quds is the Arabic word for Jerusalem. The annual demonstration is an occasion for Iranian officials to show off their support for Palestinians and condemn archenemy Israel.
The remarks come as the Palestinians are pushing this year to achieve recognition at the United Nations during the General Assembly meeting in September. The statehood bid comes amid stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations and although the U.N. vote in New York will be largely symbolic, the Palestinians believe it will send a powerful message to Israel.
"Do not assume you will be boosted with a (U.N.) recognition of a Palestinian state," Ahmadinejad said, addressing Israel. "There is no room for you in the region."
"Recognition of a Palestinian state is the first step in the liberation of the entire Palestine," he added.
Since the 1979 Islamic revolution that brought hardline Islamists to power in Tehran, Iran's leadership has been hostile to Israel, backing anti-Israel groups like the Palestinian Hamas and Lebanon's Hezbollah.
Ahmadinejad also urged the West to stop supporting Israel.
