Ahmadinejad



Wasn't it refreshing to see some of the usual suspects of the Left admitting that execution of homosexuals might be a bad thing? And the president of Columbia actually opened a can of scold-ass on Ahmadinejad:

NEW YORK (AP) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad questioned the official version of the Sept. 11 attacks and defended the right to cast doubt on the Holocaust in a tense appearance Monday at Columbia University, whose president accused the hard-line leader of behaving like "a petty and cruel dictator."
I was out working so I followed the news on NPR, and of course, being NPR they had to play at least one clip of a kid protesting that Bush is worse than Ahmadinejad. Sure kid, Bush just hides the executions better.

All in all though, it seems like most Americans get Ahmadinejad. That's got to be a good thing.

One very bad thing though:
BAGHDAD (AFP) — Iran is smuggling advanced weapons, including surface-to-air missiles, into Iraq to be used by extremists against American troops, the US military charged on Sunday.

US military spokesman Rear Admiral Mark Fox told reporters in Baghdad that Iran was shifting sophisticated arms such as "RPG-29s, explosively-formed penetrators (EFPs), 240 mm rockets and Misagh-1 surface-to-air missiles" across its borders into Iraq.
This is bad news, and added to the other reports of Iranian aid to terrorists in Iraq, it looks like something that could be used to justify a military reaction. Scary stuff.
