Iran snaps back at U.S. veiled threats - (United Press International): "Iran snaps back at U.S. veiled threats

Tehran, Iran, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Iran brushed aside veiled U.S. threats to attack its nuclear facilities as a "psychological war of intimidation and political pressures."

Foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Asafi was quoted by the Iranian News Agency, IRNA, as saying Wednesday that "Iran, backed by its people and great military capabilities will respond firmly to any erroneous action although we consider such threats as a psychological war of intimidation and political pressures."

He said the U.S. administration got involved in many crises as a result of the policies and acts of the extremist neo-conservatives, "and the only way to correct that situation is through reviewing and reconsidering its wrong policies."

U.S. President George Bush said in an interview of CBS television that Washington hopes to settle Iran's controversial nuclear case through diplomacy, but he did not rule out other choices if Iran insisted on keeping secret its nuclear activities."
