This is rich.......... I would be bowled over with laughter if this weren't my country, my people, my way of life being handed over to seventh century barbarians.
President b. Hussein is O-U-T O-F H-I-S L-E-A-G-U-E. He has, in one clumsy attempt at outreach, erased American hegemony. Appeasement is surrender to this enemy.
Iran is demanding an apology? They have been at war with us since 1979. They attacked our embassy under the clown Carter and took Americans hostages, they killed 243 Marines in the barrack bombings in Lebanon in 1981, they are Hezboallah and Hamas, they were behind a good deal of the insurgency in Iraq -- and Ahmadi Nijad is telling Obambi to apologize?
TEHRAN (AFP) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad demanded on Wednesday that US President Barack Obama apologise for "crimes" committed by the United States against Iran over the past 60 years.
The hardline leader also called on Washington to withdraw its troops from across the world as a proof of Obama's policy of change.
You were standing against the Iranian people in the past 60 years," Ahmadinejad said during an address in the western region of Khermenshah that was broadcast by state television.
60 years ........... Israel.
"Those who speak of change must apologise to the Iranian people and try to repair their past bad acts and the crimes they committed against Iran."
As to the troops, he said he expected two kinds of "deep and fundamental" change.
"Meet people, talk to them with respect and put an end to the expansionist policies. If you talk about change it must put an end to the US military presence in the world, withdraw your troops and take them back inside your borders."
Ahmadinejad said the advocates of change must "stop supporting the Zionists, outlaws and criminals."
He called on the United States to "stop interfering in other people's affairs" and said Washington should "let the American people decide their own future ... Stop pressuring them," he added, without saying to what he was referring.
Ahmadinejad said he welcomed change but the "change has to be fundamental."
"If someone wants to talk with us in the language that (George W.) Bush used ... even if he uses new words, our response will be the same that we gave to Bush during the past years," he added.
Tension between Washington and Tehran has been high over the latter's nuclear programme.
Bush refused to hold talks with Iran until it stopped its nuclear work, but on Monday Obama extended a diplomatic hand towards Tehran to break the deadlock.
UPDATE: IBD has this:
Iran: A regime that calls the Nazi genocide of the Jews a "big lie" will have enough enriched uranium for a nuclear bomb later this year. Would you bet your life on "tough diplomacy"?
