    Ahmadinejad's proof that just because you run a country, that doesn't necessarily make you rational or intelligent... something we've experienced about our own leaders in the U.S. for decades.

    Ok, I think he's a nutcase, but come on. Before we condemn him, let's at least acknowledge that there are wacknuts on the left and right who blamed the government for 9/11. In addition, there are people who think the US President is not a US citizen, he is a socialist, marxist, communist, fascist, nazi, etc... etc....

    The day all of those people renounce those stupid ideas and stand behind the American President and stop emboldening our enemies, is the day I will say Achmadinnerjacket is dumber than our dumbest.

    Yep.

    So, now that we've "acknowledged that there are wacknuts on the left and right," can we "condemn him," or do we give him a pass because to avoid some sort of appearance of hypocrisy?

    That's not a rhetorical question.

    Doesn't mean 35% are crazy, the CIA actually found out in August, however they only have enough manpower to check about 2% of these plots so I'm not surprised they didn't catch it

    I don't know why anyone would be surprised by this Ahmadinejad is a politician politicians lie,it's their stock in trade,Bush,Blair,Putin,Obama and on and on all do it.His audience in this speech is his homeland and the other Islamic states,here apparently is what he said:

    That some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to
    reverse the declining American economy and its grips on the Middle East in
    order also to save the Zionist regime.

    The majority of the American people as well as other nations and politicians
    agree with this view.

    Now this encourages the people in the U.S. that do think it was an inside job and if it winds up the rest so much the better.As far as the Islamic countries go the polls I've seen suggest the majority say they don't know who did it but those that do think they know blame U.S. or/and Israel more so than Al Qaeda.It's the same bollocks blame an external enemy for everything and you can get away with all sorts of crap at home.To think Ahmadinejad is any different from most politicians or that he himself believes it is naive at best.

    Five years or less, we will be in Iran with military forces. I don't see how we avoid it.

    Honestly there is more evidence backing the 1968 and 1980 October surprises than 9/11 being an inside job

    Uh, that poll relies heavily on what one considers "advanced knowledge" to mean. It's no secret that bush was briefed in August that there was a threat of highjacking commercial flights to use in kamikaze style attacks.

    In that sense I would have voted yes, does that make me a wingnut?

    I should explain, for our friends here that love to not take the point of my posts, that I'm not saying that 9/11 was an inside job.

    I agree with the gist of what you are saying. It's all political ramble. But I would like to add more to it.

    His speech is part of a strategy to unite the "muslim nations" for an impending war on his terf. He knows that he will not stand a chance by himself and given his current "being surrounded" situation, any help from neigboring populations and "jihadists" or whatever, he will take. Bin Laden tried this too...to cause some sort of global holy war confrontation in his idealized world cleansing scheme or some crap. Unfortunately like Turkey which is like 99% muslim tried to kill him and his friends to this date. But Amad is a national leader so his words may mean a bit more than a "rich brat who likes to blow things up". And he's betting on that.

    Achmedanutjob also stated that the holocaust was a fictional tale and that the country of Israel should be wiped off the map. Almost everything this guy says can't be taken seriously.

    Well...depending on your angle however, one can say that the "Zionist Regime" is owed more to the British than the Jews. So in a sense, it may not "belong there". However, real life doesn't work that way.

    The holder of the territory is the rightful owner by force of power. As it stands, the sole superpower of the world gets a lot of benefit from what is practically a would-be Afghanistan land where Jews make fair trade with the Capitalists. Human resources of that little piece of land gives them the power by allies to occupy that land and call it their own...until a better power pushes them out. That's the law of human civilization.

    If the Palistinians don't want to addapt to that, then they shall conquer it with thier allies (tried and failed), or accept their fate when all thier prominant leaders perish. And if the British had occupied that place...I think they would have been much less merciful than the Jews given that the English were one of the more ruthless agressors in history.

    I think Isreal is sort of like an "American colony" in a sense that it's yet another territory that can project American power into that region. And that's a major reason why that little land prospers such. It has little to do with the "sites".

    In the same way that China has avoided invading North Korea, by you know, not.

    Initially yes, these days the US is the primary power behind Israel.

    Not that the bars very high, but the British were one of the better rulers of people in the days of European empires.

    That bar is buried deep undergound. There is no worthwhile argument to be made by disinterring it.
