Ahmadinejad extolls Iran's military might
Sunday 18 April 2010
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Iran's military is so powerful today no one would dare attack the country.
The remarks came as Ahmadinejad reviewed a military parade marking National Army Day. The parade and Ahmadinejad's speech were broadcast live on state TV today.
Ahmadinejad told the nation that "our armed forces have so much power that no enemy will harbor evil thoughts about laying its hands on Iranian territory."
The parade showcased Iran's surface-to-surface Ghadr, Sajjil and Shahab-3 missiles. Their range of up to 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) puts Israel and U.S. bases in the region within Iran's reach.
Ahmadinejad also urged the US to stop supporting Israel and dismantle its military presence in the Middle East and Afghanistan.
