Live Blogging the Iranian President's Speech
7PM CDT - Shocking! In an unexpected move, Amadinejihad makes anti-American statements. Didn't see that one coming.
7:05 - Now he's switching to anti-Bush.
7:10 - Back to anti-America. His Farsi dialect is hard to follow, but I think he said, "America is evil because of blah blah blah." Or it might have been, "yadda yadda yadda".
7:18 - Now he's letting us know how many non-believers he will keep alive once he gets some unnamed type of weapon completed. (see photo inset)
7:21 - "We will only use our nuclear weapons for peaceful purposes... I mean nuclear energy. Peace is our ultimate goal."
7:30 - "American imperialism is the cause of all of the world's problems."
7:31 - "Including the common cold, earthquakes, and milk spoiling before the expiration date on the package. They are not a nation of peace, like Iran."
7:40 - "Islam is a religion of peace. When that idea is questioned, the questioner needs to be violently and agressively beheaded, or at least silenced. Thus, peace will continue." Peace... He keeps using that word. I do not think it means what he thinks it means. It's inconceivable to think he does.
7:46 - Now he's putting the smackdown on the Jews. "It's not so much that I want to kill the Jews. I just don't want them to be alive... anymore."
7:49 - Derogatory comments about Jews having large noses. A fine example of the pot calling the pot, "pot".
7:53 - He seems to be winding down now. He's calling for everyone to join his cult or experience the lovingly peaceful... I think he said 'nuclear scimitar' or something. What the heck is that?
8:00 - He started sweating profusely and it was making the make-up on his forehead rub off, so he cut it short.
I have to be honest. I don't think I like the man. Or the horns.
