Ahmadinejad to Obama: "We Don't Care!!!"

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has dismissed the White House's warnings over the December 31st deadline regarding its nuclear program.

"We don't care," said Ahmadinejad, "We are not afraid of sanctions against us and we are not intimidated." Ahmadinejad added that Iran is "ten times stronger than last year."

Now one could dismiss that last statement as bluster. But if it is not clear to President Obama that Iran isn't interested in engagement now then I am not sure if it will ever be.

Frankly, Ahmadinejad has no reason to care. What's Obama and the international community going to do? Sure there might be some sanctions but the regime will remain large and in charge.

Ahmadinejad and The Mullahs won't entertain changing their behavior unless they believe their grip on power will be wrested by force either from abroad or from within.

There will soon be a new year but it will the same old regime.
