Khamenei: US Officials Must Think Rationally

From Iran’s Press TV:

‘US officials must think rationally’

Tue, 03 Jun 2008

Leader of the Islamic Revolution says US failures in Iraq and Afghanistan reflect the ‘irrational’ approach adopted by Washington.

The remarks made by the US President and his aides and advisors bring to mind the words of the ‘mentally unstable’, said Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a Tuesday ceremony held in commemoration of the founder of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

“Sometimes they make threats, sometimes they order assassinations, there are times when they make accusations and times when out of desperation they ask for help. They even target a nation’s security and stability,” the Leader expounded.

“A significant part of their erratic behavior stems from their failure in different parts of the world especially in Afghanistan and Iraq,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

The Leader urged the nation to continue its resistance against the bullying powers of the world and cautioned that the enemy would never cease its psychological and political onslaught on the country.

Referring to the enemy’s smear campaign against Iran over its nuclear program, Ayatollah Khamenei said that the US psywar [sic] had lost its effect worldwide.

Iranians have no interest in nuclear arms, as such weapons are against our national and ideological principles and against our Islamic values“.

“The Iranian nation only seeks to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. We will continue in our peaceful path and we will achieve our aim,” the Leader concluded.

Well, if that’s what the “Leader” says, who are we to argue? That would be irrational.

Oddly enough, that other “Leader” (Führer) Mr. Hitler, used to consider himself one of the most rational men alive.

He was always going on and on about how mentally diseased Messers. Churchill and Roosevelt were. Especially when they suggested he was being disingenuous about his ambitions.

Surely, it is just a coincidence.

By the way, this other great man of reason preceded the Ayatollah on the podium the day before:

Unsurprisingly, Mr. Ahmadinejad once again vowed that Israel will soon disappear from the world map.

It’s only rational.
