Wasn't that crazy to hear that crazy Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speak before the United Nations on Tuesday? Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, might have had a point in attacking the United States and other Western nations as "bullying powers" for applying military diplomatic and economic pressure on his country -- if Iran wasn't playing the same game in its part of the world. Sure, the West is encouraging Iran to give up its nuclear ambitions -- Iran is trying to build nuclear weapons to threaten its neighbors and is funding terrorist groups in the Middle East with oil profits. Given that track record, it would be irresponsible not to try to keep Iran out of the nuclear club. This is the same guy who went to Columbia University in New York to say there were no homosexuals in Iran. What? This is a problem because it is impossible to tell what Ahmadinejad is thinking, or even if he is. "As long as the aggressors, because of their financial, political and propaganda powers, not only escape punishment, but even claim righteousness, and as long as wars are started and nations are enslaved in order to win votes in elections, not only will the problems of the global community remain unsolved, but they will be increasingly exacerbated," he said, according to the Cable News Network. Good rhetoric, dude. How are the women in Iran doing under Islamic rule? Let's not forget -- this was a speech, no doubt written by some highly salaried speechwriters under the direction of Iran's religious leaders. What does Ahmadinejad really think? He made that clear -- it's the Jews fault. This is a moron masquerading as a statesman. Hopefully, nobody is fooled.
