Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad keeps supplying newswires with healthy dose of humorous headlines, this time decrying UN’s Security Council and the right of veto held by several of its members:

Ahmadinejad, who often rails against the West, said the power of veto held by the United States, China, Britain, France and Russia was aimed at "oppressing and destroying the true nature of mankind and are satanic tools", ISNA said.

His comments came amid escalating tension in the Islamic Republic’s long-running dispute with the West over Tehran’s nuclear program, with the United States pushing for new UN sanctions against the major oil producer.

Washington and its allies suspect Iran is seeking to develop nuclear bombs. Tehran denies the charge and says its nuclear work is aimed at generating electricity.


NOW, I WISH I could comment here. I really would. But… None could be said that was not said before by someone wiser than me.
