Ahmadinejad is disgusting.
I agree, the man is horrible, and for many reasons. I'm not surprised he has said such a thing. Is anyone? To hope for a man's death when he's on
his death bed is at the very least uncivilized. But it is just another expression of his hatred of his 'enemy' and is to be expected from this
How can such an heinous person be allowed to control a country? How can such a heinous person be elected?
It happens all the time. In many countries. Look at the US. How did that happen? Again, not a surprise that an outspoken criminal of a person be
elected to run a country.
What does that say about the rest of Iran?
Nothing. Absolutely nothing. It says nothing about the people of Iran. Just as the president of the USA doesn't reflect on the character of the
people there. There is a small minority of US citizens that follow their president without question. Most of the people are against what he stands
We must not assume that the people of Iran echo their leader's sentiments. That's just propaganda. And it encourages nothing but hatred.
Just my opinion.
