Iran's Leader A New Hero?
So, we all in the western world think that Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (note: he is shrewd enough to have his own website and one in English to) is a dangerous crackpot with his blatant tirades against the U.S. and it's western allies and especially more so now since his country is expanding enriching uranium for their nuclear power plants. Obviously the rest of the world agrees with us. Right? Not at all! Shockingly, the Australian News reports that Iran's President is the new hero among Indonesians! Boy oh boy, does President George Bush and all of us in the West have a very serious problem if we don't come to grips quickly with dealing with the Muslim, the 3rd and not so 3rd world countries and peoples properly and much better than we are doing so far. Our interventionist holier than thou approach is obviously not working and probably borders on and appears like a new Bush led western Christian crusade to this other half of the world. Our leaders must approach these problems better/differently or else every time the west kills one terrorist or dethrones one thought leader, multiple more arise to replace these martyrs! One step forward, three steps back! Take note, please, Prime Minister Harper.
