Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose

Iran's President has some important news for the rest of the world!

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday extolled what he described as Iran's self-sufficiency in producing army equipment and said Iran was so powerful now, no other country would dare launch a military strike against it.

"We have passed our point of vulnerability," Ahmadinejad told state television during a visit to an Iranian defensive equipment exhibition. "This means nobody would dare stage a military assault against our nation."

Ahmadinejad said possible adversaries were aware of Tehran's defense capabilities and said that Iranian national unity was also a key factor as to why no other country would attack Iran.

Where have we heard that before? Oh, yeah:

"The Ruhr will not be subjected to a single bomb. If an enemy bomber reaches the Ruhr, my name is not Hermann Goering: you can call me Meier!" - Reich Marshal Hermann Goering

Given his propensity to surreal flights of fancy, I propose that, if an enemy bomber reaches (say) Natanz, we should be able to call Iran's President "Aronofsky."
