Ahmadinejad Demands U.S. Apology For 'Crimes' Against Iran
The Guardian ^ | January 28, 2009

Posted on 01/28/2009 9:08:06 AM PST by Fennie

The US should apologise for "crimes" it has committed against Iran if it wants a better relationship with Tehran, the Iranian president said today, after recent overtures to the Muslim world from the new administration in Washington.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's uncompromising tone followed a conciliatory message from Barack Obama, the US president, earlier this week when he told the Islamic world: "We are not your enemies." In his inauguration last week, Obama offered to extend a hand of peace if Iran "unclenched its fist".

At a rally in western Iran today, broadcast live on national television, Ahmadinejad said Iran would become a change in US policy provided it involved a withdrawal of American troops from abroad and an apology to Iran.

"Those who say they want to make change, this is the change they should make: they should apologise to the Iranian nation and try to make up for their dark background and the crimes they have committed against the Iranian nation," he said.

Obama the Muslim will give him one. Iran will then see that as a sign of weakness and assault something of ours once again while making some flimsy excuse for it that Obama will lap up like a kitten at a bowl of milk.

Just what did we do to Iran that we need to apologize for?

Are they going to apologize to us for the hostages they stole and the lives they interrupted.

I guess we should apologize for kidnapping and holding their embassy personnel for 444 days against all domestic and international laws.

Oh, wait...

Gee, I really sorry we didn’t bomb Iran into the middle ages.
But, that would have accomplished nothing. They’re already living in the 7th century.

“Ahmadinejad Demands U.S. Apology For ‘Crimes’ Against Iran”

Obama would be glad to, but Obama says (to I’m-a-nut-job), “You’ve gotta take my phone call first...”

Hey, Ahmadinejihad, you want an apology...here it is.

We, the United States of America would like to apologize in advance because we are going to blow your ass up as soon as we elect a real American for president in 2012 (or sooner.)

First, it’s “apologies,” then “reparations.”

We should pay reparations to Iran because they housed and fed Americans for 444 days in 1979.

As best I can tell, we said they were part of an axis of evil. Words, just words.

0 will give them any kind of apology they want. Just tell him what to do. The problem is that the America Iran wants on its knees isn’t 0’s Omerica.
