Following on from Iranian congratulations, Syria has rushed to offer it's sincere thanks to the US electorate...
"The outcome of the theses elections is a genuine punishment from the American people to President Bush's administration that staged a war on Iraq because of incorrect and inaccurate stimulations," Syrian "Information Minister" Dr Mohsen Bilal said in an interview with al-Jazeera, according to the official Syrian news agency SANA. "Therefore the U.S. and British forces are in a mess there now," Bilal noted that incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi opposes the war in Iraq.
"This lady has made the word of the American people audible. And this is very comfortable."
Well, if IRAN and SYRIA are comfortable, I'm feeling pretty relaxed - how about you? Wonder how comfortable Israel is feeling? The vultures circle...
How interesting! Iran's Supreme Leader Head Mullah Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Fridayhas called U.S. President George W. Bush's defeat in congressional elections "a victory for Iran".
Bush has accused Iran of trying to make a nuclear bomb, being a state sponsor of terrorism and stoking sectarian conflict in Iraq, all charges Tehran denies."This issue (the elections) is not a purely domestic issue for America, but it is the defeat of Bush's hawkish policies in the world," Khamenei said in remarks reported by Iran's student news agency ISNA on Friday.
So the head of the most despotic regime in the Middle East congratulates the US electorate on making the right decision. Get the impression that Khamenei now sees all impediments removed from Iran's road to create the second Holocaust?
