San Francisco (Obama.net)- In front of the United Nations, the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the events of September 11th, 2001 were the fault of the United States. As a result, many members of the United Nations simply stood up and walked out of the room in order to express their disapproval of the Iranian leader.
Friday, Obama came out to shoot back at the Iranian President who is no stranger to conflict with the United States. Obama started out by simply stating, “It was offensive. It was hateful.”
Obama then said, “for him to make the statement here in Manhattan, just a little north of ground zero, where families lost their loves ones, people of all faiths, all ethnicities who see this as the seminal tragedy of this generation, for him to make a statement like that was inexcusable.”
Some officials speculate that the purpose of Ahmadinejad’s actions on Thursday were an attempt to change the headlines from the current negative press that Iran is getting.
Ahmadinejad also plainly spoke poorly about Washington, the American government, and capitalism. Then he capped off his already negative and hateful speech with his remarks about 9/11. He claimed that “some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack.”
Ahmadinejad then said that the purpose of the self-attack was to turn around “the declining American economy and its scripts on the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime. The majority of the American people, as well as most nations and politicians around the world, agree with this view.”
Following those statements, delegates from the United States, Spain, Uruguay, Belgium, Sweden, Britain, and Australia left the room.
The Iranian leader then pointed to the fact that millions have lost their lives due to American military conflicts over the last decade since the September 11 attacks.
Many in Iran are happy with the President’s assertions and say that his words represent their feelings and thoughts as well.
With tensions already high between not only the United States and Iran, but also the majority of the free world and Iran, President Ahmadinejad is only making matters worse him as he continues to offend and disrespect the United States and the majority of the international community.
As President Barack Obama has been hard at work trying to improve relations with Iran and turn them into a positive member of the international community, the leaders of the state continue to make any resolutions and positive futures very unlikely.
