'World agrees on need for change'

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says people across the world have reached a common understanding that there is need for change in the current world order.

Iran's Prez is not shy when it comes to talking about a Western World Order and how oppressive it has been towards Iran. He goes on to say the recent uprisings and protests scream that the world is not in favor of this world order and demands change.

“Iran considers the recent development as Islamic Awakening and the Westerners call it Arab spring but the important point is that there is agreement in the world on the need for reform,” Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday.

The Iranian president was referring to the popular revolutions that have been sweeping through the Arab world. The starting point of the Arab uprising was the Tunisian revolution which ended Zine Al Abidine Ben Ali's there-decade rule in January.

He drew an analogy between the Arab revolts and Iran's Islamic Revolution of 1979, noting that the uprising was aimed to put an end to the “oppressive and monopolist” situation in the world.

“This issue is the main reason behind the pressure and threats of oppressive powers against the Iranian nation,” he added.

Ahmadinejad warned that the arrogant powers have long been crafting a scheme to expand their rule over the world, stressing that unconditional Western support for Israel is the focal point of this plot.

“The US government seeks to introduce Americanized Islam … under the pretext of support of democracy and supporting the people and freedom. But Iran has been the only democratic country in the region in the past 32 years, whereas there are states in the region, which have not held a single election in their political life,” he explained.

Ahmadinejad said the Islamic establishment in Iran has always expressed its opposition to dictatorial regimes and has given its full support to justice- and freedom-seeking nations.

Yanno, I sometimes wonder (I don't know) if he is like the Arabian version of Gaddafi.
The west liked to portray him (Gadaffi) as a terrorist madman, but in hindsight and mainly after his death, some of us have been allowed to see what the man really did for his nation. Time will tell I guess....

He's kidding right? This is the man who stood in New York and confidently stated Homosexuality doesn't exist in Iran. Well, I'll bet he's right too. They murdered them all! This is the nation that stones women to death for being the VICTIM of a rape. This man calls the US oppressive?! Oh Iran won't need a Baghdad Bob. He's already there as the President.

The West has it's problems..and few disagree on that even if that is the last note of agreement people may have. However, Iran's solutions are NOT ours and never can be. We need to leave them alone...Amen! ...and he needs to cork it and stop provoking Obama. Our President is unpredictable and I think Gadaffi would have agreed if he hadn't died in the street with all the dignity of a snitch in prison.

Yeah..The world needs change alright. We all DO agree on that. Some want to see this man in Iran with more power in that changed world...and others of us would just be happy to see a world without him in it, at all.

He isn't Arabian to begin with, he is Persian.
