New horizons in jurisprudence: Iran to "sue Obama's statements at UN"

Consider the staggering legal possibilities that would be opened up if this suit is successful. To this date, lawsuits against intangible entities such as statements have met with limited success although a lawsuit against the Albanian national anthem went surprisingly far before running aground on the circumstance that the anthem was unable to hire legal counsel:

Addressing his weekly media conference, Mehmanparast said that these statements should be recorded as a document in the United Nations to show that some countries including America and France honor using nuclear weapons as symbol of state terrorism.

Barak Obama read a statement last week in which he implicitly threatened the Islamic Republic with a nuclear attack for what he claimed to be Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons under a mask of peaceful nuclear energy. [...]
I think the Mullahs are enjoying themselves these days.
