And sometimes you are. The President of the Islamic Theocracy of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is certifiable…..to the core! Everytime this dude opens his piehole, it’s 1000 blogs. I don’t get this guy at all. Consider his remarks as reported in an AP article (posted to MSNBC.com).
“The political power of the occupiers is collapsing rapidly,” Ahmadinejad said at a news conference in Tehran, referring to U.S. troops in Iraq. “Soon, we will see a huge power vacuum in the region. Of course, we are prepared to fill the gap, with the help of neighbors and regional friends like Saudi Arabia, and with the help of the Iraqi nation.”
Ok. Take a minute. Stop laughing. This doof thinks Iran can fill “a huge power vacuum?” These terrorists have done everything in their power to destabilize Iraq. Their version of filling a vacuum would be marching the Republican Guard into Baghdad and proclaiming an Islamic state. Or how about calling Saudi Arabia a “friend?” Mahmoud, buddy, the Saudis are NOT your friends. The Saudis are prepared to go ballistic on your ass in the event that the US leaves Iraq anytime soon. Ever heard of the Shi’ite/Sunni thing? Do you know the meaning of the word “hegemony?” You guys are pushing the envelope, and folks in Saudia Arabia, Jordan and Egypt have taken notice.
Or how about this for delusional?
Ahmadinejad dismissed the possibility of any U.S. military action against Iran.
“I tell you resolutely that there is no possibility, whatsoever, of such a decision in the U.S.,” Ahmadinejad told reporters. “Even, if they were to decide to do so, they would be unable to carry it out.”
France, historically one of Iran’s biggest apologists, has even talked about bombing the Iranians. Hey Ahmadinjerk – think we won’t bomb you? Better hope that Dennis Kucinich is elected president in 2008. This guy just doesn’t get it. Then, in a pot-calling-the kettle-black moment:
Ahmadinejad said Bush was a “wicked, selfish and arrogant” leader who has abused the Security Council in a push to stop Iran’s nuclear program.
“You saw that your coercion … was futile,” Ahmadinejad said, addressing Bush. “You sold out your prestige and stood against a cultured nation. … I recommend that you don’t repeat this ugly behavior.”
Who is the wicked one? And what cultured nation are we talking about here? That might fly at the Democrat National Convention, but reality has its limits, and Ahmadinejad is on the outer limits of reality.
I’ve always proclaimed that Iran is a major threat. Not because of this nutbag, but because of the mullahs behind the scenes. I need to qualify that however. If the mullahs are allowing this guy to run his mouth on behalf of Iran, then they have only one more brain cell than him. In that case, maybe my worries about Iran are truly unfounded.
