WASHINGTON, May 29th
Mr. Speaker, in a changing world full of danger, the greatest threat to the United States and the rest of the world remains the same--the Iranian regime.
This was once again demonstrated through the words of Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. In a speech recently, he said that the Iranians who wish to negotiate with the United States are committing treason. He made it clear that the jihad battle will continue endlessly until they ``get rid of the oppressors'' with ``America at the head of it.''
Mr. Speaker, the Iranian regime believes their battle will not be over until America is destroyed. The blissful, unrealistic, and naive hope to the contrary, Iran has no plans to stop its development of nukes. The Supreme Leader said: ``The accelerated scientific advancement of the last 12 years cannot stop under any circumstances.''
Iran has time and time again lied about its nuclear weapons capability and development. America should realize that the ruler of Iran wants to destroy us in the name of religion by any means necessary. The United States should tighten sanctions against Iran, not relax them.
And that's just the way it is.
