Iran: McCain’s ‘bomb bomb Iran’ joke could be America’s ‘nightmare.’

Iran’s parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani has responded to John McCain’s joking response to a question about what the U.S. policy should be towards Iran. “That old Beach Boys song, ‘Bomb Iran?’” McCain said last year. (Watch it.) Yesterday, Larijani said McCain’s joke could become a “nightmare” for the U.S. if acted upon:

“We don’t have any objection to them singing a song,” Larijani said.

But a real bomb, he said, would be no laughing matter.

“We are confident that if they make that mistake they will be awakened from their sleep and they will face a nightmare,” Larijani said.
