Bully pulpit

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.

There's not too many if any, world leaders I admire.This bonehead is no exception. But when is the U.S. going to stop playing cock of the block and mind our own business? Isreal has how many nuke plants...?Who says we get to decide who gets nuke plants and who doesn"t!
And if you review history as to when oil was discovered in the middle east and what our country offered which was,"To help these tent living,camel riding basically illiterate to the ways fo the world people".What America offered back then was that we would build their plants for them. All they had to do was trade in the dollar .Every oil producing country did except for 2,Iran and Iraq.Who says their stupid? I feel sorry for the gay people in Iran and for the way women are treated....but it's none of my freaking business! all this guy wants is for us to mind our own business. If Isreal and Iran hate each other that much they both have the fire power to go after one another at any minute. It "our Economy" We need to be focused on. They need to put their dicks back in their holister and go to the corner for a time out!It's none of our business!!Until we as a collective start thinking this way we will continue to waste lives and resourse's while Wall Street cleans our clock and more and more countries send hate and disgust our way.Focus People!
