Bush: Iran Leader Likely Will Come to N.Y.
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | Thursday, August 11, 2005 | DEB RIECHMANN

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.

Bush looks weaker to me by the day.

Iran is enriching uranium and he does nothing.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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?"

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

So, where is the brave iranian revolution? Nowhere, is it?

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?

By denying a Visa to him, we could send a message to Iranian people that we are standing with them!

"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.

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.
