Skip to comments.Bush: Iran Leader Likely Will Come to N.Y.
Posted on 08/11/2005 1:08:27 PM PDT by F14 Pilot
President Bush indicated Thursday that the new Iranian president will receive a U.S. visa to attend an annual United Nations gathering next month and welcomed the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency's warning to Tehran about consequences of its nuclear ambitions.
Bush, who met at his Texas ranch with members of his foreign policy team, also said that U.S. investigators still have not yet determined what role Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may have played in the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. Even so, Bush said, the United States has separate obligations to other countries as the host nation for the United Nations, which is headquartered in New York.

And to the Iranian people I say tonite, as you stand for your freedom, America stands with you!
I AM WONDERING HOW THE US IS STANDING WITH POOR IRANIAN PEOPLE!?
Visa for a terrorist?
Bush looks weaker to me by the day.
Iran is enriching uranium and he does nothing.
I agree. that America-hating animal should never be allowed in this country.
Yep, member nation of the damn UN.
I watched POTUS'S press conference -- we're still investigating this terrorist to see if he's who he said to be?
Hey, he's forcing Israel to commit national suicide. That's something!
When I think how difficult it was for me to get my student visa for the first time, I feel like crying. How can they give a visa so easily to a terrorist? Of course I know. I was a Christian white European wanting to further my education.
Sorry, I forgot.
He's basically adopted Kerry's plan of allowing Iran to have a "peaceful" nuke program, it appears.
The same type of program North Korea has.
The terrorists are playing us like a fiddle. Because of PC, we're screwed.
I say we take him hostage, just like he did to our people.
The DNC and anti-American American media would go nuts!
Maybe not if it's just "students".
I disagree...allow him in and never let him leave a free man.
Does anyone here rememebr when Fidel Castro came to NYC..early 60's for the UNGA, and stayed in a fleabag hotel up in Spanish Harlem..it was a media circus
"I AM WONDERING HOW THE US IS STANDING WITH POOR IRANIAN PEOPLE!? "
I'm wondering too..
The more it goes, the more the White House turns French..
His statement was a call to action that appears to have fallen on deaf ears since we are still waiting for the iranians to stand for their freedom.
nonesense as always!
The problem is he also looks weaker to those who are a danger to us. What a shame. It invites disaster and is opposite what Reagan promulgated. Bush said he wanted to emulate Reagan, what a laugh.
Nonsense? Then where is the vaunted iranian freedom revolution that Bush called for.....it is nowhere.
Why don't you go to Iran to help the Iranians get free.
As an American, it's your duty.
If Iran is not free today, it's because USA, isn't it?
Typical European thinking which is why Europe is, well, Europe...are you enjoying the slide into existence as the western region of the caliphate?
"Typical European thinking which is why Europe is, well, Europe...are you enjoying the slide into existence as the western region of the caliphate?"
Everywhere, from Iran to Afghanistan to Iraq to Europe, since 1979, USA always rely on islamists, their best friends..
As King Fahd once said:
"I summon my blue-eyed slaves anytime it pleases me. I command the Americans to send me their bravest soldiers to die for me. Anytime I clap my hands a stupid genie called the American ambassador appears to do my bidding. When the Americans die in my service their bodies are frozen in metal boxes by the US Embassy and American airplanes carry them away, as if they never existed. Truly, America is my favorite slave."
King Fahd bin Abdul-Aziz, Jeddeh 1993
your remarks are always nonesense!
ignore this ignorant guy!
Name calling like some little girl won't change any of the facts, including the fact that you guys threw out the shah (who was a despot) and then got something worse. iranians did it, not Carter. When your countrymen get tired of bowing to the mullahs then they'll do something about it....in the meantime not much going on, is there?
That is none of your business!
Go peddle your stupid ideas somewhere else!
What's your point.
Either that, or he could just walk acrossed our border to get in.
Seen it, done it!
The title search is your friend don't be afraid to use it.
By denying a Visa to him, we could send a message to Iranian people that we are standing with them!
Who is this man W in the white house that I voted for???? Seems like he's gone wobbly.
"Seems like he's gone wobbly."
Maybe he forgot about the axis of evil speech? Just a thought. It doesn't make any sense unless we plan on arresting him, and sending this dirtbag to gitmo.
If not, Bush is making himself and the war on terror look like BULL$#!T.
At the height of the Cold War we hosted Khrushchev in the same venue. Ahmadinejad isn't a pimple on Khrushchev's butt. One recalls that Khrushchev mentioned something about an ash heap of history at the time. Tyrants take note.
The Iranian people could send a message that they are with us by taking care of this guy themselves.
Yes, tyrants take note.
Yet there are people on this thread who have no idea.
"If not, Bush is making himself and the war on terror look like BULL$#!T. "
I can't figure it out. It doesn't seem like he has the will to be tough on the war. It's almost like he is being apologetic for being tough early on. I think the pressure is getting to him. That's just MHO.
Tell us then, where is the great iranian uprising? Your people had the balls to throw out the despot shah. What's keeping them from getting rid of your current illustrious leaders?
I've asked you and your fellow shahistas this a hundred times but you've never answered with anything but childish invective. This is a forum about America, not some third world islamic country that won't fight for its own freedom yet you and your fellow shah-lovers persist in using it for your own propaganda. As long as you do, I'll be here to ask the questions you can't answer.
And let me tell you one thing:
The great Iranian people will never rise up for the sake of people like you!
Now, you can repeat your BS again!
Uh, forgot to tell you on thing:
That is none of your damned business!
"The great Iranian people will never rise up for the sake of people like you!"
Hell, they aren't even rising up for the sake of their own children.
they will never rise..
any thing else?
een madar jende kos kesh ro bayad az tokhm avizunesh kard
He's just here to case the joint!
"yes! they will never rise.."
Finally some truth from you.
