Ahmadinejad will soon send a message to the American people
The Associated Press ^ | Tuesday, November 14, 2006 | ALI AKBAR DAREINI

Posted on 11/14/2006 6:15:12 AM PST by kagoots

Ahmadinejad said he will soon send a message to the American people in an apparent attempt to influence the U.S. public opinion over President George W. Bush's policy toward Iran. "We will issue a message to the American people ... many Americans have asked me to talk to them and offer my opinions to them. This message is being drawn up," he said. In August, Ahmadinejad called for a televised debate with Bush months after he wrote a letter to the U.S. president that Washington said was irrelevant and not addressing the key issue of Iran's disputed nuclear program. Iran also recently has said it would consider negotiating with the U.S. over Iraq and other regional issues if Washington proposes having talks. But has hinted that it would not drop its refusal to talk about its nuclear program.

Exactly what I was thinking. Quite pithy, as well. His response is probably going to wind up causing a mushroom cloud.

If Nixon could debate Kruschyev why can't President Bush debate Ahmadijenhad? With all due respect I think it DOES hurt us that we will not talk directly with North Korea and Iran. I wish the President would go live on a debate broadcast over all news networks; Nixon would have, Kennedy would have, Reagan would have.

If they were talking to you, honey, they were Americans-In-Name-Only. Kerry, Ramsey Clark, Kennedy and Durbin don't count as American since they are "citizens of the world."

With all due respect that would be Elevating a Nut case to the position of world power....The USSR was on "equal" footing we had to debate...Iran is a simply a boil on our but compared to the USSR...Reagan never debated Libya's Mo-mar

Because Russia already had a big nuclear arsenal, and we knew that they were rational enough to be deterred by the doctrine of Musual Assured Destruction.

Neither of those things is true about Iran.

I just dying to hear what he has to say.

It's stage II of the Ettiquette of Jihad. The first stage was the letter sent to Bush. He will likely list islamic grievences by the U.S., ask the U.S. to apologice and ask the U.S. population to convert to islam. If these conditions are not met, then a holy war is officially sanctioned.

Nixon's debate with Kruschev didn't mean squat. Even so, Kruschev was considerably more sane than Amaddogonjihad.

With all due respect I think it DOES hurt us that we will not talk directly with North Korea and Iran.

We ARE talking directly with North Korea and Iran, and frankly, talks are about as useful as teats on a bull. North Korea's problem is it just doesn't want to talk directly its neighbors, while the US position is we'll talk if the people most concerned get the oppotunity as well. But talk gets us nowhere.

We'd be better of just interdicting their ships without wasting our breath on them- that is what we'd have to do if they were happily talking anyway. North Korea is isolated and so long as they are hostile that's a good thing. The only reason to talk to them is to trick them into letting us snoop, or to please the peace-pansies out there who get off on the illusion that anyone can reason with a nutjob dictator of a terrorist state if only the lips are moving on both sides.

Iran wants a war because they perceive us as weak- and they are correct, the most vocal Americans are very, very weak and are just begging to get raped. There is no talking to Iran, either, because they have hope of getting their way if they can just out wait the administration and then have to deal with a White House staffed by Iran's allies. We'd be better off bypassing the Iranian government entirely and going to their people- not through the stilted and BS format of the sort of debate Iran would approve of, but directly, by blasting them with our message [not some silly arse moderated debate] on radio waves on every frequency.

I wish the President would go live on a debate broadcast over all news networks; Nixon would have, Kennedy would have, Reagan would have.

This isn't an issue that is debatable- Iran wants nukes and that's all there is to it; the Iranian government as it is is ALWAYS going to use terrorism and its reach is already worldwide. We cannot allow that, though we are likely to talk long enough to see a nuclear Iran if we keep up the verbal charade, and once it goes nuclear we're just going to have to eat any terrorism it throws at us. Preventing this is a matter of national survival- there is no negotiable halfway point, no middle ground to seek out, nothing to debate, and stalling puts us in peril. Debate should take place among Iranians, not foreigners, but the Iranian people cannot debate so long as the regime remains in power.

Bush's speeches are on the web for the whole world to see. Amaddogonjihad's on the record too. There is no point in wasting more time on talk unless the goal is to use the talk as a distraction - as Iran is doing- to gather enough intel for a strike to take out the regime.

Honestly, I don't think Bush can hang with him in a debate. Bush isn't willing or able to articulate why it is inevitable that the western way of life be the standard for the entire world. He isn't able to be our dissemenator of the tenets of the Magna Carter. He's not Sir Francis Bacon.

You know the problem is that the democrats will embrace him and enable him... we have to stop allowing the media and the libs to enable those people that don't agree with the American way of life. I don't give a sh*t about the rest of the world. They don't give a rats ass about themselves... its survival of the fittist baby and I want to win... the hell with them all...

How much do you want to bet the Democrats are 'advising' him on just what the letter should say.

In fact I would not be surprised at all if the whole idea of a 'letter' wasn't suggested in those 'secret' meetings the dems had with Iran before the election.

Here's another message: If a single American or Israeli ever dies because of an Iranian nuclear missile, and a US liberal chimes in to say that "It's the USs fault", it is a national duty on the part of every American citizen to slap that liberal until his nose bleeds.

Literally, while standing before them, to smack them across the face, and if they are still standing, to do it again until their nose bleeds.

But what a wonderful thing it would have been to see Churchill debate Hitler. I guess I'm 'old school' in that I think being an excellent debater should be a prerequisite for ANY elective office. Then Governor Bush put the serious hurt on Ann Richards in their debate.
