    Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Friday called U.S. President George W. Bush's defeat in congressional elections a victory for Iran.

    Iran has tried to make a nuclear bomb, being a state sponsor of terrorism and stoking sectarian conflict in Iraq, all charges Tehran denies.

    Doesn't it just make you feel gooooood that a psycho who has nukes and dreams of world domination feels victorious?

    Me, not so much.

    Obviously that Co-meanie would prefer his country
    falling to a Democrat-lead USofA than to fall
    to a Republican-lead USofA. :tonofbricks:

    That doesn't make any sense. Talk about looking through Democrat glasses. We all know that what he's saying is that Democrats are more likely to look the other way.

    Not really, Ed.

    That "Co-meanie" just believes there's a much better chance that his country won't "fall" at all to a democrat led USofA.:smilewinkgrin:

    The democrats are more likely to exercise the new Pelosi doctrine of Preemptive Surrender.

    Gee, maybe Bush was right to start a war in the Middle East. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS HE INVADED THE WRONG COUNTRY.

    I guess Khamenei is trying to match Ahmadinejad for making stupid statements.

    By the way, Iran does not have nukes and they are a long way off from having any - if they are even trying to build them.

    KenH,

    Thanks for checking your crystal ball. But the bottom line is YOU DON'T KNOW and he has freely admitted he wants them and that he hates the United States.

    That's right folks, 9 out of 10 psycho dictators agree, Democrats are good for them.
    :thumbsup:

    And they wouldn't use them when they do get them, right? They are just for show.

    I doubt the millions of Iranians - who don't care for the mullahs, anyway - want to see their country turned into glass.

    I went to a lecture the other night where a Middle East expert, Jonathan Adelman, spoke. He thinks that eventually the mullahs will lose power as the younger generation is tiring of their failure to deliver a modern economy.

    If the Iranians ever build nuclear weapons we would know ahead of time that they were preparing to use them as the mullahs would head for their underground bunkers.

    I think that Khamenei and Ahmadinejad are simply full of hot air - like most politicians.

    But their message is that they don't fear Democrats like they did Republicans. And by the way, we MAY NOT KNOW if they are planning to attack us with nukes or anything else. We didn't know about 9-11, Pearl Harbor, etc.

    Face it, terrorists don't fear Democrats.

    Obviously they don't fear Republicans either since 9-11 happened on Bush's watch.

    Bingo!

    Maybe the truth is that they don't fear Americans in general. You wouldn't expect people who are fighting for what they perceive as a religious cause ti be afraid of of anything, especially if they are taught that it is good to die fighting us "infidels."

    I also noticed in the news this weekend that the terrorists were glad that Bush got rid of Rumsfield. I guess that means that Bush supports terrorism, right?:rolleyes:

    That's just not logical. AFTER 9-11 is when they started realizing that Republicans mean business. Now this psycho dictator has said he is happy Democrats are in power because they will look the other way.

    He said it. Stop trying to rationalize it. A weakness of the Democrat party is that they are seen as being weak on terror and our enemies.

    Yes, we would. They know we would respond with our own nukes. The mullahs would head for their underground bunkers ahead of time.

    Oh look... another rant about the Democrats before they are even in office.

    Who cares what the nut job in Iran thinks? He has been saying off the wall things for a long time, and now we're suppose to listen?!?!

    Would the Republicans please get off your high horse. Either party is equiped to handle any situation. Remember my good fellows.... God is in control. You do believe that right?

    In fact, the Iranians love republicans. They actively worked for the Reagan campaign, and refused to release the hostages until a republican was elected.

    Later, they were paid back, as a republican administration delivered the weapons they requested. These missiles were later used against American aircraft in the Persian Gulf.

    Iranians sure do. And Osama seems to have kept his head down and on the run when Clinton was bombing his camps. Since Bush now says he "doesn't care" where Osama is (after pledging to "bring him to justice", one wonders just how scared he is of republicans. In general, not following up on threats tends to make one less scarey than would be the case otherwise.
