I guess he is waiting for the bombs to drop.

YASOUJ, Iran — Iran will not yield to world powers in the dispute over its nuclear program, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Wednesday in a speech broadcast live on state television.

“The Iranian nation will not retreat one iota in the face of oppressing powers,” he said. “The Iranian nation has chosen its path.”

The United States and its Western allies accuse Iran of seeking to acquire nuclear weapons and demand that it freeze uranium enrichment. Iran insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.

Iran says its nuclear program is a peaceful drive to generate electricity so that the Islamic Republic, the world’s fourth-largest crude producer, can export more of its oil and gas.

At a meeting with Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator in Geneva on Saturday, six world powers gave Iran two weeks to answer calls to rein in its nuclear activities.

Ahmadinejad described U.S. participation in the latest round of nuclear talks a “positive step forward” toward recognizing Iran’s right to acquire nuclear technology.

The Iranian president said the United States’ decision to attend the talks in Geneva, Switzerland, will help repair America’s image in the world.
