(NEW YORK) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad warned the Obama administration Tuesday if Iran's nuclear facilities are attacked, the U.S. will face a war that "would know no boundaries." Ahmedinejad, who is in New York for the annual meetings of the United Nations General Assembly, spoke at a breakfast meeting with reporters and editors at Manhattan's Warwick Hotel. He said that Iran is on the brink of becoming a nuclear power and warned Israel and the U.S. against attacking its nuclear facilities.
When asked about the possibility of a U.S.-supported Israeli air strike against Iran, the fiery Iranian leader said an attack would be considered an act of war and suggested the U.S. is unprepared for the consequences. He said such a war "would know no boundaries. War is not just bombs."
Iran claims it has no plans to make a nuclear weapon, but the country is faced with United Nations sanctions, spearheaded by the U.S., which are meant to convince Iran to comply with international regulations and abandon its nuclear program.
