'Ball of fire' if Iran attacked: IAEA chief

"The UN atomic watchdog chief warned on Saturday that an attack on Iran over its controversial nuclear programme would turn the region into a fireball, as Tehran rejected an Israeli strike as "impossible."

Mohamed ElBaradei also warned that he would not be able to continue in his role as International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director general should the Islamic republic be attacked."

Just fax us the resignation, hoss and we'll cut you a check for any accrued sick leave. That said, don't let the tent flap hit you in the ass on the way out.

"His stark comments came as Iran stressed yet again that it will not negotiate with world powers over its nuclear programme if it is required to suspend its controversial uranium enrichment.

"A military strike (against Iran) would in my opinion be worse than anything else ... It would transform the Middle East region into a ball of fire," ElBaradei said in an interview with Al-Arabiya television."

Well, we can only hope, now can't we. Since you and your camel-humpers in crime haven't done your job, this is what serious people do when confronted with barbarians at the gate.
