Iran: Holding Hands For More Nukes!

File this under “what the…”

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's volunteer Islamic militiamen are vowing to form a human chain along the length of the country's borders as a show of force against international pressure on Tehran's atomic program.

Iran faces referral to the U.N. Security Council for possible sanctions after failing to convince the world its nuclear fuel program is intended for power stations rather than warheads.

Mohammad Hejazi, head of the volunteer basij militia, swore he had enough people to girdle the country.

"Nine million basij will form a human chain around Iran on November 26 in support of the country's right to peaceful nuclear energy," he told state television Wednesday.

He said the chain would run to about 8,700 km (5,406 miles) and added President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would attend the ceremony.

It’s not a joke people, this is for real. Sometimes, you just have to shake your head, close your eyes, and walk away from it.
