“Iran: Leader warns gulf countries against supporting Bush,” from AKI (thanks to Insubria):
Tehran, 15 Jan. (AKI) – Jomhouri Eslami, the newspaper founded by Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has warned countries in the Persian Gulf against supporting US President George W. Bush.
An unsigned editorial, that many attribute to the Iranian leader, takes aim at the gulf emirates accusing them of having given “a warm welcome” to the American president.
“The emirs of the gulf should not underestimate our warnings, ” the editorial said. “Supporting George Bush means playing with fire.”
“You must value responsibily the interests of the Islamic Republic. It can cost our neighbors very dearly.”
