The Tundra Tabloids has been saying this for some time now, as well as Barry Rubin, who once again delivers an excellent analysis on why Iran will in fact continue with its own agenda regardless what the Obama administration says. Ahmadinejad and the Mullahs who give him power, simply are not intimidated by the US. KGS

Whatever you think of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad he is not a stupid man. And he’s also not acting like an intimidated one. During the latest UN meeting on nuclear issues, when the new International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)director-general urged Iran to “clarify” its activities, the camera showed Ahmadinejad laughing contemptuously.
Diplomatic engagement isn’t going to win this guy over, nor are hollow threats. He knows the current U.S. government court-martials Navy Seals for giving a bloody lip to a terrorist who murdered American civilians in Iraq and mutilated their corpses (though the two tried have been cleared). What does he have to be scared about?
