  • Ahmadinejad - the bad news and the good news

    by Sunny

    The bad news is that this quasi-dictator still keeps spouting anti-semitism and 9/11 conspiracy theories.

    The good news is:

    He briefly touch on the four sets of sanctions imposed on his country by the United Nations over Tehran’s refusal stop enriching uranium and to prove Iran is not trying to build an atomic bomb.

    Some members of the Security Council have “equated nuclear energy with nuclear bombs,” Ahmadinejad said. He accused the United States of building up its nuclear arsenal instead of dismantling it and reiterated his call for a nuclear-free world.

    “The nuclear bomb is the worst inhumane weapon and which must totally be eliminated. The NPT (Nonproliferation Treaty) prohibits its development and stockpiling and calls for nuclear disarmament,” the Iranian president said.

    Of course, some people may choose not to believe him, but Ahmedinejad usually shoots straight from the hip. Besides, at least that’s better than threatening his neighbours with nukes.

      The fools.
      After all, as you point out, everything else he says is so truthful.

      ahmeddinjad is not as crazy as george bush when he was leader and the trigger happy yanks so all this media hype and propaganda i don’t buy it, because it is coming from the usual suspects.

      I don’t buy it. Iranian have made any number of contradictory statements on nuclear intentions over the years, usually in communiques to the US. They almost certainly are after the bomb. The question is how do we deal with it, and that answer is not another war in the Mid East.
      The task is to create a realistic alternative course of action, that either permanently deters Iranian acquisition or effects a suitable containment until the regime collapses. This is the hard work I hope some people at Labour Conference put their minds to, not the accepting the easy option of taking A-Jad at his word.

      If you look at both iraq and afghanistan the iranians are helping out the americans hardly the sign of deadly enemies. If iran really wanted to put the squeeze on america they could turn the screw in both these places.

      This ahmedinjad making headline grabbing statements, the US walking out at the UN is all show. Reality on the ground shows they working with each other, so don’t believe the hype.
