Iran: Number One World Power? Nope, Not Today

Iran is the number one power in the world” – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

No, the aforementioned text has not been lifted from a “Saturday Night Life” script. According to FOX News, Ahmadinejad uttered these words this past week in a speech to the families of Iranians who perished in the Iran-Iraq war that occurred more than 20 years ago. And, yes. He was being serious.

In what serves as yet another example of his refusal to let go of the past, Ahmadinejad showcased his unadulterated lunacy in his assertion that he is leading the world most powerful country.

This baseless statement is more than laughable, especially when considering the fact that Ahmadinejad and his government deny the existence of homosexuals in Iran, authorizes the murder of gays and restricts the rights of women. I suppose these components contribute to his idea of what it takes to become the “number one world power.” Unfortunately, these are traits of an ideologically torn nation that is ruled by a cruel despotic figurehead – not indicators of a good or decent nation by any means.

Today the name of Iran means a firm punch in the teeth of the powerful and puts them in their place.” - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Whose teeth is he referring to?  And the American liberals think Bush is a brainwashing buffoon (my guess is that this story will go widely unpublished amongst liberal bloggers who are probably more concerned with statistically predicting Bush’s next bowel movement)?

Ahmadinejad's latest verbal assault on reality is unbelievable to say the least, but what else are we to expect from a man who seems determined to solidify his nation as the diaper rash of the world.
