    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad predicted on Monday that Muslims would uproot "satanic powers" and repeated his controversial belief that Israel will soon disappear, the Mehr news agency reported.

    "I must announce that the Zionist regime (Israel), with a 60-year record of genocide, plunder, invasion and betrayal is about to die and will soon be erased from the geographical scene," Ahmadinejad said.

    "Today, the time for the fall of the satanic power of the United States has come and the countdown to the annihilation of the emperor of power and wealth has started."
    AFP: Ahmadinejad says Israel will soon disappear

    :clap2: Great foreign policy....lets sit down and talk.

    Yeah, it really sounds like the man is ready to talk.

    People are fucking crazy if they think Ahmadinejad will talk with anyone. What next? "Let's see if bin Laden will come for afternoon tea!"

    The delusions the Obama camp has put in the minds of Americans will haunt them forever. I've never seen a candidate make more promises that they can't make good on in my entire life, and I've seen a lot of candidates make a lot of promises.

    The man is a populist. It would be a mistake to take everything he says at face value. He isn't a madman, he is a gifted politician (even if he is a jerk).

    Yet, it's the mistake millions of Americans have made.

    You are probably right. A good approach (from a governing point of view, if not politically) would be to point this out.

    And exactly what do you think the Hillary camp has been trying to do for the past year?

    But anytime we question Obama we're either: a) racists; b) racists trying to divide the party; c) racists using dirty politics; d) bitter racists; or e) Republican racists in disguise.

    We can't win for losing.

    I don't follow. Has Clinton been trying to point out to the American people that Iran is a rationale actor that can be reasoned with (although carefully)? If she has, I say good show.

    Ummm....do you understand? Let me break this down slowly for you.....

    We would give Ahmadinejad legitamcy and make him a hero among Islamic Extremist.......just ask leaders from the Democratic party....Biden??


    Are you really that clueless or such a partisan hack that you can't see when something is detrimental to our country?

    This isn't about what Bush has done, this issue is to do how we will handle radical threats. Can you set aside your irrational hate? Focus on how dangerous and unprecedented this change in foriegn policy would be to your country?

    Wait, didn't somebody just post that Ahmadinejad wasn't the leader of Iraq? I'm so confused.
