Warm sentiments from a religious fanatic who wants to bring about the mahdaviat, to a power-hungry tinpot dictator:
“We feel at home here and among our brothers … we’re going to be together until the end,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez during a visit to Latin America on Wednesday.
Makes you wonder, what does Ahmadinejad have in mind when talking about “the end”?
But hey, maybe he’s talking about baseball. Yes, that must be it!
Both leaders roundly denounced US “imperialism,” and Chavez also called Israel “a murderous arm of the Yankee empire.”
Steinbrenner be damned; Go Dodgers!
Chavez said he had just returned from an unannounced visit to Cuba, where he met with his mentor Fidel Castro as well as President Raul Castro. “They asked me to give you a hug for them,” he told Ahmadinejad.
Makes you go all warm inside, doesn’t it?
