Iran blames U.S. for N. Korea nuke test
"Not only did the United States not lift the sanctions it had imposed on North Korea, it even increased the diplomatic pressure. Such pressure finally led North Korea to conduct its nuclear test," Iranian state radio said in a commentary.

"North Korea's nuclear test was a reaction to America's threats and humiliation," it said.

Iran has said it will not abandon uranium enrichment despite the threat of international sanctions over its disputed nuclear program, which Tehran insists is purely for peaceful purposes to be used for nuclear energy.

President Bush on Monday said the United States was still attempting to confirm that a nuclear test in North Korea had actually taken place. Still, he said, "such a claim itself constitutes a threat to international peace and security."

5. ECH1969 -- you did it! You managed to tie Iran to North Korea's test!
I thought Bush was going to do this!

North Korea is testing its nukes and sending ballistic missle carriers with a range that could reach California in tests over the Pacific, and somehow the fucking U.S. is still fetishizing Iran.

Holy Iranian mindfuck!
