Iran's President Says Sanctions Would Prompt "National Celebration"

The arrogance of the despised. From Iran's President Says Sanctions Would Prompt "National Celebration": Iran's hard-line President Ahmadinejad said Wednesday, "The day sanctions are imposed on Iran by its enemies would be a day of national celebration for the Iranian nation." He said previous sanctions had not stopped Iran from achieving its goals. The five permanent members of the UN Security Council agreed Tuesday to start working on UN sanctions against Iran next week, but failed to bridge differences on the severity of the measures, diplomats and officials said.
