Ahmadinejad slams world warmongers

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has spoken strongly against the warmongering nations of the world, calling them devoid of care for humanity.

“Rulers, who have launched the wars, their hearts are devoid of affection for mankind,” President Ahmadinejad said on Saturday, IRIB reported.

“The emptier their hearts are of affection, the more [there are] crime and war,” the Iranian chief executive said.

“Warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan is an example, which has affected the economy and security of the whole world and everyone has suffered damage from it,” the president said, referring to the United States-led offensives on the violence-scarred countries.
Violence resulting from the military presence has killed over one million Iraqis ever since the Washington-led invasion of the country in 2003, says the California-based investigative organization Project Censored.

The 2001-present armed interference in Afghanistan has also claimed the lives of thousands of Afghan civilians.

Referring to Israel, President Ahmadinejad said, “We see that [they] occupy a land. Attach no rights to its people and bury its children and women, using bulldozers, use biological and chemical weapons against people and fill the prisons with people who have risen up for the honor and pride of their homeland.”

In the face of Israeli aggression, thousands of Palestinians have so far lost their lives, trying to recover their lands, which Tel Aviv started to occupy in 1948.

Tel Aviv used white phosphorous in its war on the Gaza Strip at the turn of 2009, which left more than 1,400 Palestinians dead.

Israeli forces have also been reported using banned and deadly tear gas canisters on the demonstrators, who hold anti-Israeli rallies in the occupied West Bank.

There are around 9,000 Palestinians in Israeli detention, many of whom have been incarcerated without charge, trial and sentence.

The Iranian president questioned “See who, and with what characteristics and for what reason, have waged the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the wars of the twentieth century?”
