The modern world's dichotomy does not exist between nations which are capitalist or socialist, rich or poor, industrial or agriculture - but between responsible and irresponsible nations said Strategic Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Saturday. "Iran is one of these irresponsible nations," Lieberman told Channel Two's "Meet the Press." The strategic affairs minister explained that the western world had a reason to fear Iran because its unpredictable leadership could make irresponsible decisions. "India, for example, has had nuclear weapons for a long time. But we are not worried by India, no one is worried by India, because India is a responsible state," said Lieberman. Though pressed on recent comments made by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert regarding the future borders of Jerusalem, Lieberman refused to take a stand on the issue. He also failed to comment on Olmert's trip to Russia which was hastily arranged following Russian President Vladimir Putin's meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The reasons for the trip were "highly important" said Lieberman, adding that he "forgot, for the time being, the reasons for Olmert's meeting." On Saturday an Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander was quoted as saying Iran has mapped all enemy bases and will launch 11,000 rockets if attacked. When asked how Israel would respond to a barrage of 100 rockets, Lieberman said that "this is an example of an irresponsible question. Iran does not have 100 ballistic missiles." Lieberman also dismissed the possibility of a Syrian rocket attack telling reporters that "Syria has no ballistic missiles at all."
