Thank you, Tony!

This speaks for itself:

British Prime Minister Tony Blair on Thursday launched a hard-hitting attack on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad following his comments calling for Israel to be "wiped off the map."

Blair told gathered journalists that he feld a sense of revulsion at the "completely unacceptable" remarks of Ahmadinejad.

"If they continue down that path then people are going to believe they are a real threat to our world security and stability," Blair said, adding Iran is making a "very big mistake" if it thought the world would ignore its anti-Israeli sentiment because it was distracted by other world events.

"I have never come across a situation of the president of a country saying they want to wipe out - not that they have got a problem with or an issue with - but actually want to wipe out another country," Blair said, adding Ahmadinejad's behavior underlined the need for Iran itself to reform.

"This is unacceptable and their attitude towards Israel, their attitude towards terrorism, their attitude on the nuclear weapons issue isn't acceptable," Blair said.

"Can you imagine a state like that with an attitude like that having a nuclear weapon?"

Here's the ultimate guarantee they won't get it.
