Americans Are Such Tough Guys September 24, 2007Posted by fitsnews in US Politics.
NO LOVE FOR YOU, IRANIAN DUDE
FITSNews – September 24, 2007 – So the President of Iran is visiting New York today, and judging from all the tough talk coming from both the egghead left and the rigormortis right you’d think the guy was Satan himself. Anyway, Mahmoud Ahmanidanidingdong (editor’s note: It’s Mahmoud something) is catching all sorts of flak on his trip from, well … everybody. Here’s a nugget from the CNN story about Mahmoud’s visit to Columbia University:
Columbia University President Lee Bollinger excoriated Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday, going through a long list of documented actions and remarks by the firebrand Iranian leader and his government. “Mr. President, you exhibit all the signs of a petty and cruel dictator,” Bollinger said to applause from many of the 600 people in the room for a speech from the Iranian leader. Bollinger cited the Iranian government’s “brutal crackdown” on dissidents, public executions, executions of minors and other actions.
Talk about rolling out the red carpet. Seriously, Dr. Bollinger. If this guy is such an asshole, how come he got an invitation to speak at your University?
Of course, the fact that Ahmad Jihad’s country is still on the map at all is what’s really insulting here, proving once again that Americans are “all talk, no bomb.” Forgive us for so effortlessly crystallizing our nation’s reticence in the face of an excessively-delicate 21st Century geopolitical balance, but there’s really no point in being able to blow everybody off the face of the earth like eleventy kabillion times if we don’t blow somebody off it every once in awhile.
