President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declared on Thursday that Iran was the world's "number one" power, as he launched a bitter new assault on domestic critics he accused of siding with the enemy. "Everybody has understood that Iran is the number one power in the world," Ahmadinejad said in a speech to families who lost loved ones in the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.
"Today the name of Iran means a firm punch in the teeth of the powerful and it puts them in their place," he added in the address broadcast live on state television.
Ahmadinejad's comments come amid renewed Western efforts on the UN Security Council to agree a third package of sanctions against Tehran over its refusal to suspend sensitive nuclear activities.
They also came a day after former top nuclear negotiator Hassan Rowhani launched an unprecedented attack on Ahmadinejad's foreign policy, accusing him of using "coarse slogans and grandstanding".
"You can see how some people here... try to materialise the plans of the enemies and by showing that Iran is small and the enemy is big," added Ahmadinejad.
"These are the people who put the enemies of humanity in the place of God," said the deeply religious president.
He also told the families of the "martyrs" of the war that their loss was not in vain as the message of the Islamic revolution of 1979 that ousted the pro-US shah was spreading all over the world.
"Today the message of your revolution is being heard in South America, East Asia, in the heart of Europe and even in the United States itself," he said.
Ahmadinejad said he talked with people everywhere he travelled in the world and "it is like I am in district 17 in Tehran", referring to the low-income area in the south of the Iranian capital where he was giving his speech.
Ahmadinejad is due to travel to Iraq on Sunday in the first visit by a president of the Islamic republic to its western neighbour.

For the life of me, I can't understand why anybody takes this clown seriously. Maybe one of you folks who is terrified and outraged by this guy could shed some light on the subject.

I can't either. To think righties are scared of a clown that has no power is amazing. Let alone that we could bury that country if needed to defend ourselves. LMAO!

Obama's position on Iraq is much more popular than McCain's, homie.

Eh, he knows that there are people in his country who will believe and defend him regardless of what he says/does. It happens everywhere.

That being said, this is analogous to arguing that the Chiefs are the best team in the NFL or that Nebraska is an upper rung Big 12 football team.

It only means something to the 20-30% that still approve of Bush's FP. Change is wanted from that not Bush II on steroids.
