Guess who's coming to town

Guess who's coming to town.....
Speaking with reporters at the United Nations today, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice said that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has applied for a visa today to come to New York for a non-proliferation conference.

"My understanding is as of today he has filed an application for a visa," Rice said in response to a question about Ahmadinejad.

Ahmadinedjad apparently is interested to come to attend a major review conference of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) getting underway at the UN in New York next week, and which is set to last for most of the month of May. But it also comes as the U.S. is working intensively with other members of the UN Security Council plus Germany to pass a resolution sanctioning Iran over its nuclear program, and Iran is lobbying countries hard against the sanctions.

"With respect to Iran and our work to achieve a resolution on sanctions, that work continues," Rice said. "We are in very intensive discussions in New York and capitals with colleagues in the P5+1 and we look forward, at the appropriate time, to continuing our discussions and consultations with other members of the Council."
What could go wrong?

What could go wrong with treating a lunatic anti-Semite as a civilized statesman? Ahmedinejad is paying no price for his genocidal designs upon the Jewish State and for his nation's pursuit of a nuclear bomb. Just the opposite.
