US stages boycott at United Nations as Ahmadinejad calls for new world order
By Julian Pecquet - 09/26/12 12:15 PM ET
The U.S. delegation to the United Nations boycotted Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's last address to the world body on Wednesday, leaving the floor before the Iranian delivered a tirade against America and Israel.
Ahmadinejad delivered a lengthy recitation of the world's woes going back to the creation, and called on the U.N. member nations to create a new world order.
Fortunately right now we are at a historic juncture: On the one hand, Marxism is no longer around and on the other, capitalism is bogged down in a self-made quagmire, he said. I would like to invite all countries of the world to play a more active role in making it possible for everybody to contribute to the global decision-making processes in the world.
He also took a swipe at Israel, which has threatened military action against Iran if it pursues nuclear weapons.
Intimidation by nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction by the hegemonic powers have become prevalent, he said. Continued threats by the uncivilized Zionist to resort to military action against our great nation is a clear example of this bitter reality.
Ahmadinejad's past speeches were met with walk-outs by the U.S. and Israeli delegations after he denied the Holocaust and made other offensive remarks about Jews. In the run-up to this year's speech, the Iranian delegation boasted that Iran could preemptively attack Israel.
"Over the past couple of days, U.S. mission spokeswoman Erin Pelton said in a statement, we've seen Mr. Ahmadinejad once again use his trip to the U.N. not to address the legitimate aspirations of the Iranian people but to instead spout paranoid theories and repulsive slurs against Israel.
Ahmadinejad is serving the last year of his second term, so Wednesday's address will likely be his last at the U.N. In his call for a new order, he said the world powers have entrusted themselves to the devil and pitted the worlds religions against each other.
I do not believe that Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and others have any problems among themselves or are hostile against each other. They get along together comfortably and live together in an atmosphere of peace and amity, he said. The current abysmal situation of the world and the bitter incidents of history are due mainly to the wrong management of the world and the self-proclaimed centers of power who have entrusted themselves to the devil.
The U.S. delegation stayed seated Monday when Ahmadinejad addressed a U.N. meeting on the rule of law. The Israeli ambassador to the UN walked out before Ahmadinejad addressed that meeting, as is Israel's habit when he speaks.
Anticipating fiery rhetoric, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon personally asked that members refrain from attacking one another in speeches this year.
"The secretary-general drew attention to the potentially harmful consequences of inflammatory rhetoric, counter-rhetoric and threats from various countries in the Middle East," Ban's press office said in a statement.
President Obama, however, did not hold back in his speech Tuesday, warning Iran about the potential consequences if it moves forward with a nuclear weapons program.
Let me be clear: America wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy, and we believe that there is still time and space to do so. But that time is not unlimited, Obama said.
Make no mistake: A nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained. It would threaten the elimination of Israel, the security of Gulf nations and the stability of the global economy. It risks triggering a nuclear-arms race in the region, and the unraveling of the non-proliferation treaty. That is why a coalition of countries is holding the Iranian government accountable. And that is why the United States will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
For all his fiery rhetoric, former Iranian nuclear negotiator Hossein Mousavian told the New York-based Jewish Daily Forward that Ahmadinejad's biggest legacy might be his outreach to the United States.
The most important legacy left during the Ahmadinejad presidency was that the taboo of negotiating with the United States was broken. Since he had a freer hand, he wrote letters to both President [George W.] Bush and President Obama, Mousavian said. Even though his letters went unanswered, it was unprecedented for any Iranian president since the  revolution to make such overtures to the United States.
He should stay a while and watch Hussein work.
Obama hasn’t bowed to him yet or invited him to the White Hut for a homebrew?
And visit a few college campuses and TV/newspaper newsrooms. Oh yes, Hollywood too.
We are creating a new world, a balanced world. A new world order, a multipolar world, Chavez told reporters during a visit to Communist China, one of many. His new world order includes [RUSSIA], China, Iran,... and a significantly weakened United States, he explained.
Resurgent Communism in Latin America
by Alex Newman, March 16, 2010:
From the Russian News and Information Agency:
July 27, 2006
"'I am determined to expand relations with Russia,' Chavez, known as an outspoken critic of what he calls the United States' unilateralism, told the Russian leader, adding that his determination stemmed from their shared vision of the global order.":
From the Sino-Russian Joint Statement of April 23, 1997:
"The two sides [China and Russia] shall, in the spirit of partnership, strive to promote the multipolarization of the world and the establishment of a new international order."
"Joint war games are a logical outcome of the Sino-Russian Friendship and Cooperation Treaty signed in 2001, and reflect the shared worldview and growing economic ties between the two Eastern Hemisphere giants."
Ahmedinejad sounds like a Marxist himself in the following. I still suspect he was a Russian plant.
From CBS-News, July 29, 2006:
Chavez Vows To 'Stand By Iran'
After Oil Talks In Tehran, Venezuelan Leader Called 'Brother' By Ahmedinejad
"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other. Chavez is a source of a progressive and revolutionary current in South America and his stance in restricting imperialism is tangible.'":
To give the Iranians their fair chance in the sun, I propose that the US Ambassador to the UN present the following tomorrow:
“Resolved: That the United Nations headquarters shall be moved to Teheran, Iran, by January 1, 2013. All those in favor, say Aye.”
how many were present for his un speech? How many for Obama’s speech
And then he produced a pistol, and shot himself in the head.
No Ambassador, not even the Iranian, would want that. Who wants to live in Tehran?
Surely all those who thirst for Iranian leadership of a New World Order would make the sacrifice.

“Outreach”, “taboo of negotiating” ???!!! LOL!
There was no outreach, and negotiating is not taboo when it is meant for public consumption ONLY!
Oh, and Mousavian forgets that Ahmadi-Nejad only took over the Presidency in 2005. Before that there was Mullah Khatami as president in Iran, who was also reaching-out & ‘negotiating’ w/ the USA, alas a softer style than Ahmadi-Nejad. Although, so far the results have been the same, because the USA, under different administrations has had NO WILL to remove the Mullahs’ regime - it is that simple!
