. US attack on Iran 'impossible': Ahmadinejad
TEHRAN, Aug 28 (AFP) Aug 28, 2007
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday dismissed the chance of a US attack against Iran as impossible, saying that Washington already had enough trouble in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"There is in no way the possibility of such an attack by the United States. Even if they take such a decision they cannot implement it," he told a news conference. "They have to solve the question of Iraq and Afghanistan."

"Politicians do not deal with imaginary things. They deal with reality and this is propaganda. This (an attack) is not on the agenda of US officials and it cannot be," he said.

The White House has never ruled out attacking Iran, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Monday that Iran risked being bombarded if the crisis over its atomic programme was not solved.
