If a group comes and occupies the United States of America, destroys homes while women and children are in those homes, incarcerate the youth of America, impose five different wars on many neighbors, and always threaten others, what would you do? What would you say? Would you help it? ... Or would you help the people of the United States?"
"So when we say 'to be wiped,' we say for occupation to be wiped off from this world. For war-seeking to (be) wiped off and eradicated, the killing of women and children to be eradicated. And we propose the way. We propose the path. The path is to recognize the right of the Palestinians to self-governance."
"I cannot express an opinion. That is their prerogative," Ahmadinejad said. "But the people of Palestine must be allowed by everyone, and helped by everyone, to allow them, to give them the right to choose for themselves."
"Any nation has the right and will indeed defend herself."
"But my question is this: Why should the world be managed in such a way that an individual can allow himself to threaten a rich and deeply rooted historical, ancient country such as Iran? A great country, such as Iran, based on an excuse of his own fabrication. ... Another country can say, 'I am guessing that country B is doing activity X, therefore I will attack that country' ... can this be ... a successful formula for the management of the world?"
Ahmadinejad also discussed his reaction to Osama bin Laden's death last year by American Navy Seals under President Barack Obama.
"I would have been happier to see a transparent trial, a formal trial, and find out the root causes of all of the events of the last few years," the Iranian president said.

I really don't see your point. You had Bush that talked to God and now Romney that is a Mormon ex-minister that believes, listens and fallows a living prophet (a real person that believers think speaks for God). Add to that the issues of creationism and the really low culture level of the populace of the US (this is something we should all be fearful of) and if you "squint you eyes" you almost do not see any difference...

And lets get one other thing straight. I am NOT defending any of our politicians since I don't trust them either. But the threat they present to us and the world is minor compared to what radical Islam offers.
the rest of the world that insists on poking them in their collective eyes at every chance they get so as to increase control and sales of arms by the military/industrial complex.
unless there really is a government conspiracy and cover up
