Gaddafi: Iran's vanity will lead it to suffer same fate as Iraq

Iran could go the same way as Iraq if it persists in its confrontation with the West, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said Tuesday, according to Reuters. "What Iran is doing is pure vanity," said Gaddafi. "If a decision is taken against Iran, it will suffer the same fate as Iraq...Iran is no stronger than Iraq and will be unable to resist." Gaddafi said countries that chose isolation were doomed to fail. "No country will survive on its own in the future - it will disappear," Gaddafi said. "The challenges facing Iran are greater than its ability to overcome them alone."
