Ahmadinejad gives Obama the finger

Responding to President Hopenchange's call for his country to suspend its nuclear program and come talk, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gave the new American President the finger.
Iran will not halt its nuclear activities as demanded by US President Barack Obama's administration, Aliakbar Javanfekr, a close aide to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told Reuters on Wednesday.

"We have no non-peaceful activities to suspend. All our activities are peaceful and under the supervision of the IAEA," he said.


"Obama should act realistically to avoid repeating (George W.) Bush's mistakes," he added.


Javanfekr also rejected Obama's calls for Iran to "unclench its fist," saying its was "illogical to talk about unclenching fists when Iran is surrounded by American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq."

Referring to the Obama administration's suggestion of direct talks, Javanfekr said, "We are ready for talks with some preconditions ... including ending America's military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan," he said and repeated the demand for an apology.

Earlier Wednesday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called for "profound changes" in US foreign policy - including an end to support for Israel and an apology to the Islamic republic for past misdeeds.

Ahmadinejad also urged Washington to withdraw its troops stationed around the world. He said Iran would be closely watching what President Barack Obama's new administration does and would welcome a real shift in its approach.
Ahmadinejad also rejected UN sanctions, calling them - get this - 'ineffective.'

Gee Zbig, what are we gonna do now?

If Obama thought Ahmedinejad would respond positively to his sweet talk, he just got a lesson in how a dictator sizes up an American President's weakness.

The Iranians want nothing from America except maybe it should die. They are being faithful to the view of the Great Satan and they've watched America forget how deadly an enemy Iran can be.

We'll watch to see if Obama's America takes the mullahs seriously or continues to cling to the illusion a deal can be made with them.

Ahmedinejad just read Obama the riot act. The ball's now in his court.
