The Iran Ahmadinejad Wants You To See

(CBS News) The American government, sir, it is very clear to me they have to change their behavior and everything will be resolved. (George W. Bush) believes that his power emanates from his nuclear warhead arsenals. The time of the bomb is in the past, it's behind us. Today is the era of thoughts, dialogue and cultural exchanges."

- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Aug 08, 2006

Does he mean like this?

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard have been found among Hizbollah guerrillas slain by Israeli forces in southern Lebanon, [and] Israel says many of the rockets being fired against its civilian and military targets are Iranian made, and that Hizbollah fighters taking on its forces trained in Iran. Washington also accuses Tehran of actively funding Hizbollah.

Or maybe like this:

(AP) British authorities said Thursday they had thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up several aircraft heading to the U.S. using explosives smuggled in carry-on luggage, averting what police described as "mass murder on an unimaginable scale."

Perhaps more like this:

(DPA) While chanting "Death to America", "Death of Israel" and "Nuclear energy is our undisputable right", the crowd walked toward the Azadi (Freedom) Square in Tehran where Ahmadinejad held his annual speech.

In his speech the Iranian president warned that in case of harsh measures against Tehran over its controversial nuclear programme, the country would revise its commitment toward the Nuclear Non- Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Wait, I know what he means, culture and dialogue like this:

(OpenNet Initiative) Iran has adopted one of the world's most substantial Internet censorship regimes. Iran, along with China, is among a small group of states with the most sophisticated state-mandated filtering systems in the world.

I find it almost humorous that this man will attempt to paint the picture of his Iran being a peace loving nation of intellectuals and a center of Persian enlightenment as he sends money, weapons, and troops to Lebanon to kill Israelis, actively supports terrorism and terrorist activities, and clamps down on all outside thought and free expression in his own nation.
