TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's president on Tuesday blamed the United States and other "big powers" for global ills such as nuclear proliferation and AIDS, and accused them of exploiting the United Nations for their own gain and the developing world's loss.

But, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, time was on the poor countries' side.

"The big powers are going down," Ahmadinejad told foreign ministers of the Nonaligned Movement meeting in Tehran. "They have come to the end of their power, and the world is on the verge of entering a new, promising era."

He'd be even more adorable with a tactical nuke shoved in his fat, yapping trap.

I'd prefer for the Iranian people to overthrow he and the insane mullahs, and institute a democracy.

I agree. There's a lot of decent Iranian people. Plus there women are hotter than Iraqi's.

But can we Ahmadinejad on a deserted island and use him for target practice? :)

They had one, but it was overthrown in 53.

Not entirely true. Mossadegh was democratically elected after the assassination of his predecessor (who was an ally of the Shah), but he then began using his position to consolidate power and eliminate the rest of the Iranian government and opposition. Iran was a constitutional monarchy, but Mossadegh demanded the abdication of the Shah and tried to usurp his powers, but the Shah fought back and won. This was the same path that Allende tried in Chile and Chavez followed in Venezuela, the use of a legitimate election to gain power and then abrogate the democratic institutions when they don't go along with your agenda.

I hate having this argument with you because I think we've had it several times before.

You're absolutely correct...
And it didn't help that we propped up that regime until 79'. Iranians have long memories.

Thats a really bad idea.
