Drudge: Ahmadinejad to Cuba, New York
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is to attend the summit of Non-Aligned Movement countries in the Cuban capital Havana in mid-September, an official said Wednesday.
“The president will take part in the summit of Non-Aligned countries in Havana,” said the official from the president’s office, who asked not to be named.
The summit of the 116-nation grouping is to take place between September 11-16, and Ahmadinejad is also expected to attend the UN General Assembly in New York that starts on September 12, the official said.
Ahmadinejad said in Tehran Wednesday that his attendance of the UN General Assembly would be a “suitable opportunity” to challenge Bush in a television debate.
“My forthcoming visit to New York for the UN General Assembly would be a suitable opportunity to hold the debate and all world people, especially the Americans, could hear and watch it without censorship,” the news agency ISNA quoted the Iranian president as saying in a cabinet session.
Flap made reference to this “UNHINGED” NUTTY idea of a televised debate here.
And Flap asks again: What is there to debate?
Iran is playing the Western media cycle to develop further an Iranian regional hegemony in the Middle East. Ahmadinejad wants to show Kuwait and Saudi Arabia that he has faced up to the United States and humbled/defeated America. He debated and beat the Great Infidel Bush.
Flap wonders what kind of protests might be organized against the Mullahocracy by dissident Iranians?
And Castro? Who cares the old man does not have long to live and Hugo Chavez is a lefty
banana oil republic dictator with Cooties from Cindy Sheehan who can be easily changed at the drop of a knife hat.
Maybe Khatami will over stay his visa and can show Mahmoud around? How about the Statue of Liberty, boys?
