Oh dear. The dhimmis’ latest spurious line in the sand and “Let-Us-Pay-You-Tribute-Please” deadline has angered the Thug-In-Chief and his minions. No doubt he senses their weakness and pusillanimity and knows that a display of trumped-up righteous anger will weaken what little resolve they do have, and bring them closer to total capitulation.

TEHRAN : Iran reacted angrily to a UN Security Council resolution ordering the Islamic to freeze sensitive nuclear work by the end of the month.
UN Resolution 1696, which dangles the threat of sanctions unless Iran halts uranium enrichment and other work that could help build a nuclear bomb, was welcomed by the United States and its allies but decried as “destructive and totally unwarranted” by Iran’s UN ambassador.
“I would suggest to you that this approach will not lead to any productive outcome. It can only exacerbate the situation,” Javad Zarif told the Security Council.
“The Americans must be sure that Iran will not take part in a game which it will lose,” Kazem Jalali, spokesman for the Iranian parliament’s foreign affairs commission, was also quoted as saying by the ISNA news agency.
“If there were to be a loser, it would be those who have shifted the Iranian nuclear issue away from dialogue,” he warned.
“Dialogue” in this context meaning “abject surrender to Iran.”
