Obama: I’m doing my best to kill it Moody, honest.
Moody: Try harder Hussein, run up that debt even more!
The way crony capitalism is now the fad, Obama, unchecked, is going to hand Mahmoud the dead carcass of capitalism real soon. KGS
NOTE: This time around, no one left the UN General Assembly when Ahmadinejad began his speeh, nor during it. Apparently all is forgiven, even his unrepentant statements about the Holocaust and wiping Israel off the map. Yes they didn’t show up to hear him speak for whatever the reason, and some might take it as a message in itself, but if they were serious about their revulsion of what the man stands for, they should have left in mass the moment he took the stage.
Ahmadinejad says in U.N. address that capitalism is dying
UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Iranian President MahmoudAhmadinejad on Tuesday told a U.N. General Assembly session on poverty that capitalism was on the verge of death and that it was time for a new economic system.
“The discriminatory order of capitalism and the hegemonic approaches are facing defeat and are getting close to their end,” Ahmadinejad said at a summit meeting assessing progress on achieving U.N. goals to drastically reduce poverty by 2015.
“The undemocratic and unjust governance structures of the decision-making bodies in international economic and political fields are the reasons behind most of the plights today humanity is confronting,” he said, according to an English translation of his prepared remarks.
Ahmadinejad had drawn large crowds for previous U.N. speeches but Tuesday’s address was delivered to a virtually empty hall.
It was unclear whether the unusually low attendance was due to waning interest in Ahmadinejad five years after he first addressed the assembly or if it was the fact that he was one of the first speakers in the morning session, which began at 9 a.m. EDT/1300 GMT.
