Iran: U.S. Should "Think Twice" Before Taking "Collision Course" Wit

PanARMENIAN.Net – Tehran has stepped up its attacks on the United
States, amid speculation that Washington may accelerate plans for
missile strikes against Iran’s nuclear programme.

The Iranian Foreign Minister, Ali Akbar Salehi, said during a visit
to Libya that the U.S. should “think twice” before putting itself on a
“collision course” with Tehran.

Iranian newspapers carry the Supreme Leader’s comments accusing the
U.S. of being behind terrorist attacks.

Ayatollah Khamenei said he had ‘100 undeniable documents’ proving the
U.S. had been responsible for terrorism in Iran and elsewhere in the
Middle East.

Israel has staged a mass drill, simulating the impact of a missile
attack by Iran. It follows a week of media reports that Israel may
attack Iranian nuclear installations, but the military has dismissed
any link.

The UN’s nuclear watchdog is due to report on Iran’s nuclear programme
next week.

“There is going to be a report by the International Atomic Energy
Agency, which will highlight some of the progress that Iran has
been able to make despite the various other issues and sanctions and
other aspects that have slowed it down. But I don’t think that in any
way it justifies that type of media headlines that we are having,”
said Professor Gerald Steinberg from Bar Ilan University and also a
columnist for the Jerusalem Post.

Britain says it is keeping its options open in relation to possible
military action against Iran over its nuclear programme. A newspaper
report said the UK was stepping up contingency plans in anticipation
of a request for military help from the U.S., Euronews reported.
