Iran making waves...

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday that his country was ready to face " anything" over the disputed nuclear program, showing his intransigence to the UN sanction resolution and rumors of possible U.S. military strike.

During a visit to the Iran Cultural and Press Institute, Ahmadinejad said the Islamic Republic had gone through "formidable path" and "Iran is ready for anything on this path".

The U.S. military has just sent the second aircraft carrier to the gulf region, and some Western and Arabic media reports disclosed that the U.S. government had decided to launch attack against Iran from the sea before this April and would deploy PAC-3 anti-aircraft missile systems in Arab countries.

Although the U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has said the increase of U.S.
forces was aimed at sending Iran a message not to misjudge the current situation in the Mideast, the top official and White House have denied the rumors, saying the U.S. currently has no intention to attack Iran.

Referring to the UN resolution 1737, Ahmadinejad said Tehran would not be stopped by sanctions and threat.

"They are trying to weaken Iranian nation's resistance, but they cannot succeed," he stressed.
