I'm surprised they didn't say this yesterday after Kim set off whatever exploded. Iran's leadership, both secular and religious have now said they will not stop their program. Period.
"Our policy is clear: Progress, offering transparent logic and insisting on the rights of the nation without retreat," supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, according to state-run television.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also said Iran will continue its nuclear program, which it says is for peaceful purposes.
"The Iranian nation will continue its path of dignity based on resistance, wisdom and without fear," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.
So, as North Korea goes, so goes Iran. If the UN does not clamp down hard on North Korea, there is zero chance of stopping Iran before it detonates its first bomb. The test may well be staged over Tel Aviv.
