Ahmadinejad reveals source of all crises
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says corrupt monarchies and hegemonies with huge military spending are “the source of all global crises.”
“Corrupt powers are not qualified to govern the international community neither theoretically nor practically,” Ahmadinejad said on Sunday.
“Monarchic regimes and hegemonic powers are the source of all global crises,” the Iranian president’s official website reported.
“In the US, plans to allocate USD 50 billion to healthcare for the poor caused a lot of media hype and uproar, while the US military budget for 2010 is over USD 860 billion, which is eight times more than Iran’s total spending budget,” did not receive media attention, he added.
Referring to the problems in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan, the president went on to criticize the US and its allies for not playing a larger role in aid efforts aimed at easing the humanitarian crises in flood-stricken Pakistan, the president’s website reported.
“While the Americans drop thousands of bombs on civilians in these countries on a daily basis, they avoid [seeding] humanitarian aid,” he was quoted as saying.
“The result of this type of governance is either an invasion or the massacre of people,” the president warned.
