For All Humanity
"I emphatically declare that today's world, more than ever before, longs for just and righteous people with love for all humanity; and above all longs for the perfect righteous human being and the real savior who has been promised to all peoples and who will establish justice, peace and brotherhood on the planet." -You may be surprised to learn who said this. It was President Mahmoud Ahmadinejead of Iran. I would be pleased if the United States began diplomatic relations with his country before we begin another war. Other bloggers have denounced his speech at the UN General Assembly where he criticized the UN for being dominated by the United States. However, the UN is dominated by the US. It has been since its creation. The precedent has been clear from the cover up of the US invasion of Guatemala to modern day, US representatives have done more to undermine the credibility of the UN than help it. The current ambassador is no exception if you look into the facts. In any case, I too long for just and righteous people with love for all humanity. Yet, I don't long for the creation of nuclear tension.
