Reuters reports that the Iranian "Supreme Jurisprudent" Ayatollah Ali "Ali Shah" Khamenei calls the recent US congressional elections a victory for Iran. How right he is. As Ali Shah tells us: "[t]his issue (the elections) is not a purely domestic issue for America, but it is the defeat of Bush's hawkish policies in the world." Full speed ahead now on that nuclear weapon.
Plenty of other foreigners share Ali Shah's happiness at the Democrats' triumph. In Venezuela, Hugo "Nutjob Chavez (the Duce) described the elections as a "punishment" vote, and also said: "I believe that what is happening in the United States today was destined. . .We see [the Democrats’ win] with optimism, not for Venezuela, but for the world,” he added. Meanwhile, in Europe, 200 Socialist members of the European Parliament called the election results ". . .the beginning of the end of a six-year nightmare for the world."
Party on brothers. . .and keep laughing, for now. Maybe, one fine day, we will serve up a dish not so much to your liking. À tout à l'heure.
