Another issue raised in the interview was Iran’s relations with the United States under new President Barack Obama.
According to Ahmadinejad, “Great things are happening in the United States. I believe that the Americans are in the process of initiating important developments.”
Hmmm, what could he mean? Caroline Glick sums it up in her latest, “Column One: Surviving in a post-American world,” in the Jerusalem Post, April 9 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Somewhere between apologizing for American history – both distant and recent; genuflecting before the unelected, bigoted king of Saudi Arabia; announcing that he will slash the US’s nuclear arsenal, scrap much of America’s missile defense programs and emasculate the US Navy; leaving Japan to face North Korea and China alone; telling the Czechs, Poles and their fellow former Soviet colonies, “Don’t worry, be happy,” as he leaves them to Moscow’s tender mercies; humiliating Iraq’s leaders while kowtowing to Iran; preparing for an open confrontation with Israel; and thanking Islam for its great contribution to American history, President Obama made clear to the world’s aggressors that America will not be confronting them for the foreseeable future.
No wonder the Thug-In-Chief is thrilled.
