Ahmadinejad challenges U.S. role in geopolitics

We haven’t heard from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a while, but he’s one of those guys that, if given the time, he’ll say something comical enough to get some media attention. Ahmadinejad did just that Sunday, when he claimed in an interview with the Associated Press “the future belongs to Iran.”

He insisted that his government does not want an atomic bomb — something he has said in the past — and that Iran is only seeking peace and a nuclear-free world. He gave no indication of when Iran would resume talks on its nuclear program and said any anti-nuclear sanctions against his government would have no effect on his government’s policies. ...

“The United States’ administrations ... must recognize that Iran is a big power,” he said. “Having said that, we consider ourselves to be a human force and a cultural power and hence a friend of other nations. We have never sought to dominate others or to violate the rights of any other country.

“Those who insist on having hostilities with us, kill and destroy the option of friendship of us in the future, which is unfortunate because it is clear the future belongs to Iran and that emnities will be fruitless — and hence sanctions, too, will be ineffective.”

Yawn ...
