(Newser) – Iran will soon unveil "big new" nuclear achievements, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said today. He did not elaborate but insisted that Iran would never give up its uranium enrichment. Ahmadinejad spoke at a rally in Tehran as tens of thousands of Iranians marked the 33rd anniversary of the Islamic Revolution that brought Islamic clerics to power.

"Within the next few days the world will witness the inauguration of several big new achievements in the nuclear field," he said. Despite the bluster, he reiterated Tehran's readiness to revive talks with the West over the country's nuclear program. "Iran is ready for talks within the framework of equality and justice," he said, adding that Tehran "will never enter talks if enemies behave arrogantly."

The big news is this: "We've found someone willing to build us a bomb, He had originally sought help from the Libyans, but with Qaddafi dead he was forced to come to us. All he asked for in exchange was a suitcase of plutonium. He has long crazy white hair, a dog named Einstein & he drives a Delorean. You will all tremble before the might of our Bomb! Open it up, and show it to the puny americans... What the hell? Pinball machine parts!? What? Pinball Machine Parts?!!!!! That's it, bring me my VW Van! Where is this Twin Pines mall?"

They are trying to play with America,not a good idea,when they can be wiped off the map! It is a bad thing when the other people have nothing to do with these leaders who are making wrong choices for their country,We know how that feels.Not good at all.I would not be surprised if they got careless and exploded themselves up!
