Thanks for the MEMRIs

Do you read MEMRI? If you don't, you should. The Middle East Media Research Institute translates the media from other countries so that we can know what it is they're saying.

I bring this up because their most recent dispatch contains Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's response to President Bush's SOTU address.

Here are a few of the interesting things he says:

"I tell them here and now: Oh imaginary superpowers, made of straw know that the Iranian people has been independent for the last 27 years, and for 27 years it has been making decisions on the basis of its own will and efforts. On the issue of nuclear energy, our people, Allah willing, will continue in its path until its rights are completely achieved, and the opportunity to progress completely realized. We consider nuclear energy to be the Iranian people's right, and as servants of the people, we will be steadfast until the complete fulfillment of this right.
Does anyone truly think that negotiations will prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons? Is there anyone left who really thinks that this guy should have his finger on the nuclear button? You can hear the timer counting down . . . let's hope the world gets around to stopping this before its too late.

Read the entire thing. His lecturing America on human rights is hilarious.
