Calling for the eradication of Israel. You expect this sort of thing from your average Hamas extremist in Palestine, not from the leader of a nation. During the same speech, the Iranian President had some other fightin words for the West:

"We have a strategy drawn up for the destruction of Anglo-Saxon civilization... we must make use of everything we have at hand to strike at this front by means of our suicide operations or by means of our missiles. There are 29 sensitive sites in the U.S. and in the West. We have already spied on these sites and we know how we are going to attack them.

Is he really talking about going to war with America? Just because we're losing a war of occupation in Iraq doesn't mean our military is suddenly inept in a conventional war. This guy is insane; are we supposed to stand idly by while his government tries to acquire nuclear weapons? Any Iranian attempt to enrich uranium should be met with airstrikes - end of story. If we don't do it, Israel will; and they should.

I still am confused as to why Iran suddenly is so fiercely anti-American. We did them a favor by invading Iraq! Saddam was a sworn enemy of Iran, and a man responsible for the deaths of millions of Iranians during the war in the 1980s. Further, the Iraqi Shia now are in control of Iraq (Iran of course is a Shia Muslim theocracy), instead of Sunnis under Saddam. They should be thanking us.
