Attack on Iran: unimaginable consequences

Monday, November 5, 2007

U.S. threats to launch a military attack against Iran will “inflate tensions in the world” and create a “new quagmire” for Washington with “unimaginable consequences,” Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said.

“The world is struggling with arrogant powers. The powers which have everything, yet they are not satisfied and are seeking to exploit other countries’ resources” Rafsanjani added.

“Today the Middle East has attracted their attentions and their greedy eyes are stared at this important region.” The top cleric stated, “I am sure that if the Americans seek adventurism the world will soon realize that they have made a grave mistake.”

The former president said the U.S. oppressive actions against Iraq, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Palestine are all aimed at taking control of the “sensitive and important” region of the Middle East. “You are mistaken if you think that you can control the power of Islam in the region through force and psychological warfare.”

He expressed hope that the U.S. officials would act wisely and choose “the proper and reasonable policy of negotiations” as a solution to the crises.
