Has brief moment of lucidity.
-- NEW YORK, Sept 23 (Reuters) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in a U.S. television interview on Sunday that Iran did not need nuclear weapons and his country was not heading for war with the United States.Of course, like most people walking that fine line between quasi-twilight sanity and schizophrenia... the Madman is a really shitty liar.
Ahmadinejad also took issue with U.S. charges that Iran supports militants in Iraq, providing weapons and training, saying: "We don't need to do that."
Asked whether he was denying that Iran supplied weapons to militants in Iraq, he avoided a clear answer. "It's very clear the situation. The insecurity in Iraq is detrimental to our interests," he said.Not half as detrimental as the gps-guided cruise missile that's gonna come flyin' in your bedroom window one night, ya freakin' squirrel.
Ahmadinejad, who has called for Israel to be wiped off the map, was denied a request to visit the World Trade Center site of the Sept. 11 attacks.The Iranian people had better think seriously about dumping ol' Mahmoud before they get too much further down the plutonium highway.
Even if Bush's exit strategy for Iraq doesn't include the USMC leaving via Tehran... there are other parties here who will burn Persia to the ground and piss on the ashes... before they let them acquire a nuclear capability.

The Columbia Coalition Against the War acknowledges that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad holds some "inexcusable" views.
That doesn't mean they will, you know, confront him about it...
