They just keep giving the asshole a forum for this shit.
Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused “a few bullying powers” of trying to thwart the country’s nuclear programs and vowed to defend Iran’s right to peaceful nuclear power, in an address Tuesday afternoon before the United Nations.
He started off with the requisite spiel about ‘da joos’:
……With major world leaders watching, and just eight hours after President Bush’s final speech before the general assembly, Ahmadinejad used the U.N. platform to decry a “Zionist regime,” a thinly veiled reference to Israel, for what he described as persecution of other Middle Eastern peoples.
“The Zionist regime is on a definite slope to collapse, and there is no way for it to get out of the cesspool created by itself and its supporters,” Ahmadinejad said of Israel.
The Iranian president is feared and reviled in Israel because of his repeated calls to wipe the Jewish state off the map, and his aggressive pursuit of nuclear technology has only fueled Israel’s fears.
And on cue, America is the ‘Great Satan’ harangue:
And in a direct attack on the U.S., he declared that the “American empire in the world is reaching the end of its road,” and urged the next presidential administration to “limit their interference to their own borders.”
He’s despondent over the royal ass kicking we gave Saddam Hussein and subsequently, al Qaeda in Iraq:
…..The Iranian president also criticized the American people for having “no respect for the people of Iraq,” and said that the war in Iraq was waged under false pretense.
He said that six years after Saddam Hussein’s regime was ousted in Iraq, “the occupiers are still there.”
“Millions have been killed or displaced, and the occupiers, without a sense of shame, are still seeking to solidify their position in the … region and to dominate oil resources,” Ahmadinejad said.
Al Qaeda’s been decimated, their supporters displaced, and we’re gonna be there until the Iraqis are ready to take over. Mission accomplished, ferret face. Not that you didn’t do your part: (http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2008/05/28/irans-contribution-to-terrorism-in-iraq/)
Hell, if it was ‘all about the oil’, we’d be paying 4 cents a fucking gallon instead of 4 bucks.
GW tore Mahmoud a new asshole, which made him pout:
……Earlier Tuesday, with Ahmadinejad watching, President Bush urged the international community to stand firm against the nuclear ambitions of Iran and North Korea.
“A few nations, regimes like Syria and Iran, continue to sponsor terror,” Bush said. “Yet their numbers are growing fewer, and they’re growing more isolated from the world. As the 21st century unfolds, some may be tempted to assume that the threat has receded. This would be comforting. It would be wrong. The terrorists believe time is on their side, so they’ve made waiting out civilized nations part of their strategy. We must not allow them to succeed.”
At one point during Bush’s 22-minute speech, Ahmadinejad turned to Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki and gave a thumb’s down.
Oh yeah, let’s not forget the ‘American imperialist’ accusation:
……In the hours leading up to his speech, Ahmadinejad blamed U.S. military interventions around the world in part for the collapse of global financial markets ahead of his speech Tuesday to the U.N. General Assembly.
A fat lot of good this does:
……Iran already is under three sets of sanctions by the U.N. Security Council for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment.
……Iran insists its nuclear activities are geared only toward generating power.
But Israel says the Islamic Republic could have enough nuclear material to make its first bomb within a year. The U.S. estimates Tehran is at least two years away from that stage.
Since when is uranium for electrical power enriched for weapons?
Somali pirates hijacked an Iranian ship bound for Eritrea to deliver small arms and chemical weapons to Somalia’s Islamic terrorist insurgents: (http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2008/09/29/hijacked-iranian-mystery-ship-yields-radiationlots-of-it/)
The last time we used a nuke in anger was over 60 years ago, to stop a war.
The conglomeration of Islamofascist nation-states are falling over themselves trying to develop nuclear weapons as a threat to Western civilization, and we’re the ones “unchecked”?
As for the ‘declining American empire’, world markets depend on our economy, our agriculture, our foreign aid, our technology and our protection.
Mahmoud is having some pretty intense wet dreams. I wouldn’t bet on us ‘reaching the end of the road’ just yet.
Tell you what, Mahmoud. We’d be more than glad to stick within our borders if you crazy muslim motherfuckers didn’t try to blow up everyone to acheive your world Caliphate.
Or better yet, if any one of the multitude of international critics stepped up to the plate and took over the job of global cop.
Too bad we just don’t adopt a quick, scorched-earth policy against whomever attacks us. Japan, Germany, Italy, and at least 3/4ths of the Middle East would be parking lots. It would’ve saved us billions in foreign aid, the sacrifice of American lives for two world wars that we didn’t start, and the threat of Islamofascist terrorism.
Yeah, I’d love to see us become isolationist again, but the fucking world won’t let us.
