This thread, and the vast majority of the add-on posts to it, are just additional testament to the pitiful state of this site. ATS has become (or
maybe always has been) an anti-American, anti-West flame fest.
Not anti-American, anti-West by any means. Very much anti-US/Western imperialism. Will be extremely pro-US/Western as soon as these governments quit
their cruel, sadistic abuse of the 3rd world and their own people.
And the nearly universal take on this (here) is that Obama won't debate him because America would thus be exposed to be (take your pick) evil,
wrong, imperialistic, war mongering, genocidal...whatever.
Why pick one when all of the above apply?
How about the possibility that the President of the United States would not take up the challenge because Ahmadinejad is the leader of an
oppressive, repressive, terrorist-supporting, holocaust-denying, anti-feminist, anti-gay, anti-democracy, anti-freedom-of-speech
Yeah. What would they have in common to discuss?
...that has not earned the right to share a stage with the leader of the free world (sic)?
So exactly how many countries do you have to wage war with including the funding of covert insurgent/terrorist groups to share the stage with an
American President? Ahmadinejad better get cracking because he's way behind Obama who's only been in office a year and some.
Now...I am no fan of Obama. I think he is taking America in the wrong direction - including pandering to the very same (extremist) Islamic
elements that would love nothing more than to see America go down in flames, literally.
No doubt you're referring to the same Islamic elements that we were quite happily doing business with despite their terrible human rights abuses as
long as they were giving us what we wanted.
Whether you agree with it or not. Whether you think the West's arguments hold water or not. Iran will toe the line - and soon - or we will
all be discussing the former Islamic Republic of Iran in future ATS debates.
Now that I agree with. There's always the possibility that the American people will grow a pair and turn out our fascist leaders but I'm not
holding my breath. Still, I can dream!
Get real people.
Yes! Get REAL people voted into office, not these servants of the business elite.
