Iran's Ahamadinejad Wants To Debate Bush On Nuclear Question

Yet another stalling move until they're ready to test the bomb.

- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday challenged the authority of the U.N. Security Council as Iran faces a deadline to halt its uranium enrichment and he called for a televised debate with President Bush on world issues.

The Security Council has given Iran until Thursday to suspend enrichment, a process that can produce either fuel for a reactor or material for weapons, or face economic and political sanctions.

"The U.S. and Britain are the source of many tensions," Ahmadinejad said at a news conference. "At the Security Council, where they have to protect security, they enjoy the veto right. If anybody confronts them, there is no place to take complaints to.

"This (veto right) is the source of problems of the world. ... It is an insult to the dignity, independence, freedom and sovereignty of nations," he said.

Ahmadinejad challenged Bush to a live, televised debate on "world issues and the ways of solving the problems of the international community."

I'd love to see this jerkoff grilled on the Holocaust.

The Democrats will predictably argue Bush should debate him, knowing full well he can't, as it raises the stature of this psychopath in the jihadists' eyes. Just once, I'd like to see them take a position that was almost reasonable and not motivated by the crassest and most cynical political posturing.

Kind of a funny thing to think about -- a debate between two guys who don't know how to pronouce "nuclear." Bush of course favors the southern variation "nuke-yoo-lar," and Ahamdinejad pronounces it "anti-Zionist Prophet-atoms."

Thanks to Michael at Innocent Bystanders with his own take.

Also there, thanks to skinbad, a David Blaine style street-magic trick, sexed up with a Penn & Teller style bit of (light) graphic violence.

It's such a good trick I suspect there's digital manipulation going on; David Blaine's famous "levitating" trick was done -- at least for the cameras, without crowds around -- via a simple hoist, digitally taken out of the shot.

I know that fake skin grafts have been used by magicians before; Harry Anderson had a great trick where he stuck a long needle through his arm and ketp insisting, "This is a trick! Stop freaking out!," which had the reverse-psychology effect of making you suspect he'd really stuck a nine inch needle through his forearm.

So, I guess it's just a trick, though how he pulls it off is quite beyond me.

Here's how dorky I am. The D&D crap you knew about. But I'm a sucker for the lamest form of entertainment of all -- magic.

(Actually, I guess I do know how he does it, in broad terms. Still, it's pretty good.)
