Ahmadinejad: Upheaval will reach Europe, America
Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran's president is warning that the wave of protests sweeping the Middle East will spread to Europe and North America.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says popular demands for change will put an end to the oppression of what he called "arrogant powers." Without signaling out nations by name, he says similar uprisings will strike Europe and North America.

Speaking on state TV Wednesday, the president also condemned Libya's use of force against demonstrators and urged Libyan leaders to give in to the demands of their people.

Iran's hard-line leaders have sought to claim some credit for the uprisings in Arab nations, saying the 1979 Islamic Revolution provided inspiration.

Iran brutally put down protests on its own streets after Ahmadinejad's disputed re-election in 2009.

I beg to differ:

(1) Everyone who has visited the Temple of the Living Elvis (aka Las Vegas) knows that the King still lives. You can see him there on The Strip handing out flyers for hookers and cheap buffets.

(2) The Moon landing was photoshopped.

(3) Iran is the most free and egalitarian nation on the planet. If you have any doubts, ask any ayatollah you happen to pass on the street.

I happen to know Pot is wrong, Pot lies, Pot does not know the color of kettle. Pot sees too many colors. Pot would like you to think he is OK. Not so.
