Ahmadinejad hints: U.S. planned the Mumbai attack

posted at 12:47 pm on December 8, 2008 by Allahpundit

An olive branch from our partner in peace, replete with 9/11 conspiracy theorizing for helpful context. Between this and his Holocaust denial, it can’t be long before he embraces birth certificate Trutherism, too. He and The One will have a lot to talk about once they finally hook up.

Speaking of which, I’m giving you a bonus clip from yesterday’s “Meet the Press” of Obama reiterating the need for “tough but direct diplomacy” and “carrots and sticks” to get Iran to give up its nukes. Minor detail: That approach has already been tried, a fact helpfully noted in today’s sneering reply from the Iranian foreign ministry. The more I watch Obama on this subject, the more I think his “strategy,” such as it is, is to hope the price of oil craters to the point where Iran simply has no choice but to beg for mercy. I wonder if, the economic hardship notwithstanding, the Saudis would be willing to boost production to knock the price down further and help bring them to their knees. Click the image to watch.

We can laugh off what this clown says, but the problem lies with the true believers who hate us regardless. I’m not going to watch, but undoubtedly he will also blame “Da JOOOOOS!!!!”

Surprised? You’ve gotta hand it to Ahm-A-Mad-man, he knows how to wind friends and influence people.

Just like the Israelis smuggled all those chickens from Iran, and now they dominate the world by selling eggs.

Ahmadinejad hints: U.S. planned the Mumbai attack

My turn to make stuff up: The gov’t is considering replacing the natural born clause with an enumerated list of the duties of the office of the president-elect.

It only takes a fraction of Iran’s budget to feed the cabinet and keep the troops in line. The rest of the Iranians can pound sand as far as dinner jacket is concerned, in the short term at least, which for Iran is considerably longer than for the turd in chief.

MEMO FROM THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT ELECT

Yo, Prez for Life Ahmadinejad! We gotta chat soon, man!
My place or your’s, whatever.
No preconditions, right?
Later, dude!

Spoken by the guy who probably is behind it.

Yeah, we have all the reason in the world to have Pakistani ideological thugs attack a country that basically gets along with us – and both of them have nuclear capability.

Not like Imadimbulb – who just wants to spread peace and harmony throughout the region – of course after he slaughters all the non-believers.

kybowexar on December 8, 2008 at 12:55 PM

Here’s some crazy talk: Our President-elect has said repeatedly that he wants to invade Pakistan and uses “War On Terror” rhetoric. His election was like a CIA coup in our own country. They, incidentally work with AQ and the ISI. Under Carter, they armed and trained the mujahideen and staged the Iranian hostage crisis, which Ahmadinejad participated in. I think this guy talk about conspiracies involving our CIA.

Unfortunately, there are far too many goons loose in the world that will want to believe this wholeheartedly.

Does Alex Jones know about that Iranian guy? Jones really needs to get him on. That Ahmadinejad has really busted the lid off a huge plot !

eeyore on December 8, 2008 at 1:02 PM

Why am I not surprised that Iranian Hitler is a Troofer?? Luckily for us, this wackjob’s job security isn’t that great anymore thanks to under $50/ oil. And y’all thought that the recession wouldn’t lead to any good consequences.

I don’t know if I agree with your policework there whitetop – I think the worm is tunneling out of his cerebrum.

Wow, isn’t he articulate? I mean, what he’s saying is completely beside the point, but gosh, isn’t it nice to have a leader who can string felicitous sentences together? You know, kind of the like the beautiful music the TSE (Titanic String Ensemble) used to make. . .on deck. . . at 35, 45, 60, and counting degress of pitch? That’s what we’ve been needing, someone who can make beautiful music together with the thugs of the world.

Well hate to bring the bad tidings, but you can bet there will be less drilling here now, with the low price of oil. Probably lots of projects have been shelved

Adminachimp is nothing but a puppet of Khamenei who uses him as a distraction. He has no real power and most of what he says just BS.

What’s amazing and scary is that Ahmadinejad holds a doctorate and he still believes nutcase stuff like this. Even scarier to contemplate is that no matter how educated you are, Islamic bigotry cripples your intellect, makes you stupid.

It just may be that a worldwide recession that delivers buck a gallon gas to America may do more to defeat the dognuts theocracies of the Middle East than a thousand fighters carrying smart bombs. The price of oil is now $43 a barrel, down from $147 in July. Saudi Arabia needs $55 per barrel to fund their state budget. Starving the Saudis of petrodollars means fewer billions spent on their covert foreign policy of Wahhabi terror. Likewise, low oil prices starve the Iranians of resources to blow on atom bombs.

In aerodynamics, they say you can make anything fly if you put a big enough engine on it. In politics, you can make any government work if you put a big enough deposit of oil under it. The tyrannical governments of Saudi Arabia and Iran (let’s not forget Venezuela, either) rely on vast oil wealth to maintain control over disgruntled populations. What happens when that wealth evaporates?

Bring back the Iraqi Information Minister Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf…at least he was fun to listen to.

PatriotPete on December 8, 2008 at 3:52 PM

Obama’s famed expertise on anti-terrorism strategies comes from inputs of distinguished experts like Khalidi, Ayers, Dohrn, Farrakhan, Wright , Odinga and Olberman.

Why is it so hard to believe that the U.S has interferred in the middle east?

The U.S overthrew their democracy,trained the brutal police and supported the Shah.
Funded and supported saddam’s invasion of Iran, watched while chemical weapons were used against the civilian population.

Shot down an Iranian civilian plane in their own airspace,killing 277,66 children.

It is in America’s best interest for Pakistan and India to be at odds

Yeah, mags, that’s why the terrorists targetted almost exclusively Western victims, huh?

I think there may be a hole in your tinfoil hat.

I get a kick out of the need to use words like brutal whenever the U.S. is involved in traing foreign military and/or police. I guess that means we do a pretty good job if we can turn these people into ‘brutes.’

grdred944 on December 8, 2008 at 4:27 PM

Exploring, drilling and producing for our own energy needs will send a shot across the bow of Russia, Venezuela, and the Middle East.

What the hell are we waiting for?

danking70 on December 8, 2008 at 5:23 PM

PJEmeritus,
I am not saying there is evidence of U.S involvement.But come on,between us in the U.K and you in the U.S how much damage have we caused.

The pipeline from Iran to Pakistan and India has been condemned by the U.S and you can’t do anything about it.
http://www.gummyprint.com/blog/iran-pakistan-india-laying-the-peace-pipeline/

Who ever done the attacks,they aimed at Western victim’s to stop investment in India.

Who would benefit from India not developing economically?

If you read the IAEA they have asked for and not received

information that Israel and the U.S has that Iran has nukes.

The sticking point ,Iran has a right to develop nuclear power.
Energy is the biggest problem in our future.They can sell their oil and use nuclear energy domestically.

That is what they are saying to Obama.No economic incentives, or sanctions will not get them to stop growing economically.
There is room for negotiation but with mutual respect.

Grdred944,

I am not sure what you are saying? Is it that ,these people are born evil and brutal so the U.S doesn’t have to do anything to achieve this?

Possibly, but is YOUR actions by supporting ,condoning and giving political cover to brutal regimes that weakens you, the hypocrisy and double standards is breathtaking.
