Iran Says US Is Bluffing

Bellicose noises coming out of Iran.

A senior Iranian delegate to the UN treats President Bush´s hints of military action to stop Iran getting nuclear weapons with disdain. "Purely absurd", says Sirus Naseri about "such silly threats" from the US which "is simply too overstretched in the region."

So this particular war of words is heating up - to such an extent that one side is scornfully dismissing any possibility of it being succeeded by an actual war.

On the one hand, Naseri´s remarks are so obvious as almost to be disarming. On the other, it´s hard to imagine a more provocative remark for an Iranian diplomat to make at this stage...
