Christiane Amanpour is interviewing him on AC360 Wednesday. That should be a better one than the 60 Minutes interview.

Simply hold him to the same standard as we hold Bush or any other world leader, or is that too much to ask here ?

I guess if we did that it would deflect from bashing Bush, so no.

Yeah, clearly...........

Like it or not, the US is directly responsible for proping up Israeli governments with billions of dollars of aid to allow them to occupy Palestinians. This is grossly immoral, but no one talks about it; that's as good as denying the Palestinians' suffering to this day.



this is exaclty what i was talking about.

You need your hearing SERIOUSLY checked.

Personally I hold our President to a higher standard than the leader of any other nation...why would you not hold your own country's leader to the highest standard? Sadly, Bush has fallen far short of that standard. If we're forced to compare our President to the leader in Iran or wherever in order to make him look good, that's pretty depressing.

this is bullshit. total bullshit. most Americans are too busy going to work and taking care of their families than chanting "death to Iran" around the dinner table.

i admire many of your points and i think you offer a valuable perspective, but i don't think you're going to succeed much in equivocating between Joe American and the dispossessed of the Arab Street. i know where much of the anger comes from, but you're probably much better off looking at your own mullahs and mosques instead of trying to distil everything through the prism of "America is Bad" -- you're not going to get anywhere if you keep up the myopia and try to locate the US as the sole source of all evil in the world.

Almost as depressing as "oh well, of course he's going to say something stupid, he's Iran's leader after all, you know how those Iranians are, our nation is better than everyone else so our leaders have to be better"

Double standards abounding.......

i'm so confused. what are you looking for here?

if Bush denied the Holocaust, he'd be formally censured by the Congress, if not outright impeached. but that's because he's an American and the elected President. we have no ability to do such things to the President of Iran -- he's been roundly and resoundingly bashed in the media from left to right. what else should we do? public flogging?

what do you want?

Well it's not because it's my country or my nation is the best, but it's because we've been looked to and have claimed to set a higher standard.

Ahmadinejad is probably bitter about being hung like a 2 year old.
