Iran's response to American threat

Just in case anyone missed this:

This is quite the double-edged sword. It is quite within the realm of possibility that in fomenting a confrontation with Iran and getting exactly this response from them, that should anything happen on U.S. soil, it will be precisely the kind of event needed to spring the trap Chris Hedges wrote about in "American Fascists."

Don't forget, the Patriot Act and the lack of habeus corpus is now the law, or lack thereof, in America. At least someone in congress had the cajones to speak of actual impeachment, albeit for a different matter, but impeachment nonetheless.
