Ahmadinejad's Speech Before the UN

Lots of spin in the media on this. You read and decide.

"We have gathered here to ponder and work together for building a better life for
the entire human community and for our nations.
Coming from Iran, the land of glory and beauty, the land of knowledge,
culture, wisdom and morality, the cradle of philosophy and mysticism, the
land of compassion and light, the land of scientists, scholars, philosophers,
masters of literature, and writers, the land of Avicenna, Ferdowsi, Hafiz,
Maulana, Attar, Khayyam, and Shariar, I represent a great and proud nation
that is a founder of human civilization and an inheritor of respected universal
values. I represent a conscious nation which is dedicated to the cause of
freedom, peace and compassion, a nation that has experienced the agony and
bitter times of aggressions and imposed wars, and profoundly values the
blessings of peace and stability. I am now here for the eighth time in the eighth
year of my service to my noble people in this august assembly of sisters and
brothers from across the world, to show to the world that my noble nation like
its brilliant past, has a global vision and welcomes any effort intended to
provide and promote peace, stability and tranquility which can be only
realized through harmony, cooperation and joint management of the world.
I am here to voice the divine and humanitarian message of learned men and
women of my country to you and to the whole world; a message that Iran's great
orator and poet, presented to humanity in his eternal two-line poetry:
Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul,
If one member is afflicted with pain
Other members uneasy will remain,"

Great speech, but have any of

Great speech, but have any of you noticed a "new world order" type of feel of his speech.

Globalism sucks for everyone except governments, bankers and corporations.

Yeah I thought it was great till towards the end where the, "lets hold hands across nations...global governance... etc" came out. And the UN love too....

Great speech !

With so many references on peace the only cure for him is waterboarding in Guantanamo. Maybe this would made him a regular Muslim we are all reading about in MSM. Is there any leader in the western world that could give the speech even close to this one?

Blame America?

When neocons ask us if we blame America, I always say "No, just a handful of stupid politicians who never learn from mistakes".

He is always open and honest

He is always open and honest about the USA. That's why they hate him so much. I think he is an honorable man. Our Govt lies about Iran so blatantly though that those poor people don't stand a chance in the court of public opinion.

"..Creation of worthless

"..Creation of worthless paper assets by using influence and control over the
world's economic centers constitutes the greatest abuse of history, and is considered a
major contributor to global economic crisis..."

My jaw has hit the ground. No wonder leviathan hates him. Exposing his lies.

"...the tragic incident of

"...the tragic incident of September 11, and the military actions against
Afghanistan and Iraq that left millions killed and homeless had not happened, and if,
instead of killing and throwing the culprit into the sea without trial or without
informing the world and people of America, an independent fact-finding team had
been formed to make the general public aware of the truth behind the incident, and
prepare for bringing to justice the perpetrators,.."

MY GOD! Ahmadinejad is more transparent than Obama.

And this is the speech Mike

And this is the speech Mike Huckabee referred to given by an "all around nut job".

This whole situation frustrates me to no end. I can understand evil ambitions of politicians and pundits bent on their own power. But how are the people of our country so blind? How can they not put all the pieces together? How can these "Republican" voters not see that the nanny state they deplore is given wings by the endless warfare? How can they not rail against the money wasted in these wars that make us less safe?

I am a converted neo-con, I reluctantly admit. But once I saw the big picture, it was a weight off my shoulders. It was all so clear. I wish the same epiphany for the rest of the country.
