Iranian Leader Questions U.S. Disclosure of Nuclear Arsenal

And day two of the big U.N. NPT Get down in New York , and Iranian Pres, Ahmadinejad , Is still talking his B.S. and really trying to make a point !

Well at least he heard one of our points !

We have at LEAST 5,113 More Nukes than Iran does !

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday questioned the veracity of Pentagon's disclosure on Monday that the U.S. has 5,113 nuclear warheads in its stockpile and "several thousand" more retired warheads awaiting the junkpile.

"Perhaps there should be an independent body to verify what the U.S. government declares," he said at a news conference.

"If the U.S. government expects everyone to trust what it says, it is unfair for the U.S. to not trust what others say," he said.

Ahmadinejad, who is in New York for the state of a monthlong conference reviewing the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, again denied accusations that Iran is trying to build a nuclear bomb -- a denial aimed at undermining growing momentum for a new round of Security Council sanctions.

Ahmadinejad said Iran can withstand another round of sanctions and the pressure from the U.S. and its allies. He also said Iran would not withdraw from the Non-Proliferation Treaty like North Korea has done.
