Fisking Ahmadinejad

I know, first reports are almost always wrong....but I will, like Charlie Brown to Lucy, go with the BBC for this one. Reading the article that says it was leaked some of the letter Ahmadinejad sent to President Bush....I think I saw some hidden messages from Iran....
In it, Mr Ahmadinejad criticises the US invasion of Iraq and urges Mr Bush to return to religious principles.
He likes Jesse Jackson.
Mr Ahmadinejad spoke of the invasion of Iraq, a US cover-up over the 11 September 2001 attacks, the issue of Israel's right to exist and the role of religion in the world.
He reads DemocraticUnderground and DailyKos.
"On the pretext of the existence of WMDs [weapons of mass destruction], this great tragedy [the US invasion of Iraq] came to engulf both the peoples of the occupied and the occupying country.

"Lies were told in the Iraqi matter," Reuters news agency quoted the letter as saying. "What was the result? I have no doubt that telling lies is reprehensible in any culture, and you do not like to be lied to," Mr Ahmadinejad is quoted as saying.
He is a fan of Howard Dean.
"Why is it that any technological and scientific achievement reached in the Middle East region is translated into and portrayed as a 'threat to the Zionist [Israel] regime'?
He likes George Galloway.
In another part of the letter, Mr Ahmadinejad suggests Washington has concealed elements of the truth about the 11 September 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, Reuters reports.

"Why have the various aspects of the attacks been kept secret? Why are we not told who botched their responsibilities?" he asks.

The president ends the letter by appealing to Mr Bush to return to religion.
He wants to work with Michael Moore on a screenplay.
"We increasingly see that people around the world are flocking towards a main focal point - that is the Almighty God.

"My question for you is, 'Do you not want to join them?'"
Why do I picture his saying that with a knife around someone's throat?

Yes, peace will be long away from our house. Long away.

Oh, BTW. If he sounds a lot like those who you politically hang out with....you may want to ponder the company you keep.
