Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the nation will deliver a harsh blow to the "global arrogance" on this year's anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.
"The Islamic Revolution opened a window to liberty for the human race, which was trapped in the dead ends of materialism," Ahmadinejad said during a cabinet meeting on Sunday.
"If the Islamic Revolution had not occurred, liberalism and Marxism would have crushed all human dignity in their power-seeking and money-grubbing claws. Nothing would have remained of human and spiritual principles," he added.
Ahmadinejad said that in the three decades of its history, the Islamic Revolution had inspired some great developments in the world.
The Iranian president made the remarks as the 31st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution approaches.
Iranians are expected to pour into the streets on February 11 to celebrate the occasion in public rallies across the country, as they have done annually over the past three decades. I Know it's all Bush's fault as well as the Christians. Obama did a lot of talking about how if he bows to our enemies they will not hate us anymore. How is that working out for us now? North Korea keeps eroding and now Iran wants to play hardball with the weak Democrat. I pray Obama grows some and scares the piss out of these progressive dictators. It is becoming more and more evident that President Obama doesn't know how to handle these axis of evil. Maybe the progessives call all get together and sing or write letters to these progressive dictators. Do you feel safer knowing that Obama will do the right thing and put these idiots back in their place? Or will he fumble around like a greenhorn. Even if Obama gets tough for a change, will they believe him? It's time the President starts attacking our real enemies instead of the political ones he spends most of his time on. The world is watching and they are reacting accordingly. We can not afford to be attacked by another agressor right now. Do you remember what happened to the stock market after 9/11? And Bush was a friend of business unlike Obama. Say a prayer because I'm afraid that will be our only hope. God help us because the Democrats aren't helping us.
