Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Time to check yourself, if you start to sound like Ahmadinejad

Just a few choice quotes from Iran's fearless leader:


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sharply attacked the United States and
NATO, accusing them of acting as aggressors in Iraq and Afghanistan, and of
starting those wars "in order to win votes in elections."

"American empire in the world is reaching the end of its road, and its next
rulers must limit their interference to their own borders . . ."

"A few bullying powers have sought to put hurdles in the way of the peaceful nuclear activities of the Iranian nation by exerting political and economic pressures against Iran and also through threatening and pressuring the IAEA. . . "

He said that six years after Saddam Hussein's regime was ousted in Iraq, "the occupiers are still there."

"Millions have been killed or displaced, and the occupiers, without a sense of shame, are still seeking to solidify their position in the ... region and to dominate oil resources," Ahmadinejad said.

"The U.S. government has made a series of mistakes in the past few decades," Ahmadinejad said an interview with the Los Angeles Times. "The imposition on the U.S. economy of the years of heavy military engagement and involvement around the world ... the war in Iraq, for example. These are heavy costs imposed on the U.S. economy."

"The world economy can no longer tolerate the budgetary deficit and the financial pressures occurring from markets here in the United States, and by the U.S. government," he added.


Keep in mind this is the same guy who said:

"They have invented a myth that Jews were massacred and place this above God,
religions and the prophets," Ahmadinejad said in a speech to thousands of people
in the Iranian city of Zahedan, according to a report on Wednesday from Islamic
Republic of Iran Broadcasting.

"The West has given more significance to the myth of the genocide of the Jews, even more significant than God, religion, and the prophets," he said. "(It) deals very severely with those who deny this myth but does not do anything to those who deny God, religion, and the prophet."

But he is not one to shy away from controversy, is he? Should folks be agreeing with a man who inspires his people to chant out death to Israel and death to America?

If you start to find yourself agreeing with Ahmadinejad more often than most of the Americans you know, should you re-evaluate your positions?
