Please Shoot Me, I'm Iranian
That's the label that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad just pasted on his countrymen's backs. And like a bad American high school movie, jocks Bush, Blair and the entire football team will duly proceed to do some ass-kicking. I'm not quite sure what he was smoking just before his speech, but he is definitely worthy of an autobiography now followed closely by the 'Idiot's Guide to Getting Invaded'
- During a meeting with protesting students at Iran's Interior Ministry, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad quoted a remark from Ayatollah Khomeini, founder of Iran's Islamic revolution, that Israel "must be wiped out from the map of the world."
The president then said: "And God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world without the United States and Zionism," according to a quote published by Iran's state news outlet, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

Yes Mr Ahmadinejad deserves a pat on the back. Because even Saddam wasn't as stupid as to publicly announce to the world his desire to commit genocide and crimes against humanity. In fact, I find it quite uncanny that the Iranian President has adopted a '3-in-1' image of recent leaders whom have gained much attention in the world. His comments make him the Kim Jung Il of the Middle East. Racism and genocide (or intention of) makes him the next Saddam Hussein. And look where that got him; in a hole under Iraq hiding from American forces, not to mention his picture of him in the British tabloids wearing nothing but his unmentionables. And then his "God-willing" speech implying support of terrorism makes him the next Osama bin Laden or Al Qaeda derivative.
The comments come as so unbelieveable and disgusting to some that I believe some politicians are still having a hard time believing if the Iranian President just said that. I wonder if their government will quickly release a formal statement of apology with their tail between their legs, or continue down this path that the President has chosen. The latter would definitely spell 'biting the bullet' for Iran which will then follow Afghanistan and Iraq in becoming America's 50-something state. It's almost as if.....
as if he's taunting America and the rest of the world, "Come on you pussies! Come kick my ass if you can
!" Obviously Mahmoud Ahmedinejad doesn't know what a "wedgy" feels like.UPDATE
: Iran has its tail between its legs
. Although I'm skeptical the world can easily turn their backs as if nothing ever happened now that Iran has sort of flashed their cards and true sentiments of Israel while re-affirming their UN commitments. Time will tell...
