At least Iran has a sense of humor

An Iranian university has invited GWB to visit, speak with the student body and answer questions, much as their president did in that embarrassing (for America) appearance at Columbia University.
After the controversial appearance of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at Columbia University last week, an Iranian university yesterday invited President Bush to travel to Iran and speak on campus about a range of issues, including the Holocaust, terrorism, human rights and U.S. foreign policy, the Fars News Agency reported yesterday.

The invitation from Ferdowsi University in the northeastern city of Mashhad asked Bush to answer questions from students and professors "just the same way" that Ahmadinejad took questions "despite all the insults directed at him."

The White House said yesterday that Bush would be willing to travel to Iran, but under different circumstances.

"President Bush looks forward to traveling to a democratic Iran, an Iran where its leaders allow freedom of speech and assembly for all of its people and an Iran where the leaders mourn the victims of the Holocaust, not call for the destruction of Israel," National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe said.
First, the entire premise of the invite is ridiculous. bush won't even speak to groups of Americans until they have been screened and made to sign an oath to support bush, any slightest act that could be interpreted as a "disruption" will quickly see you removed from the venue. Of course, no Democratic Party members would be allowed in at all.

Secondly, bush is neither smart enough, clever enough, nor adroit enough to handle freely posed questions for which he doesn't have a phonetic cheat sheet with prepared answers for him to read.

And thirdly, even his spokesman's response to the invitation was incredibly rude, displayed no class whatever, and again needlessly insulted the government of Iran when a simple, "No thank you…" would have sufficed. No, they had to once again misquote Ahmadinejad with the intent of demonizing him further, showing again the ignorance of people who do not realize that Ahmadinejad never called for the destruction of Israel.

And another sign of a sense of humor bush is incapable of was their declarations that the U.S Army and the CIA are terrorist groups in retaliation for the Senate's non-binding resolution declaring the Revolutionary Guard of Iran a terrorist group.
The rhetoric followed the passage of a nonbinding resolution by Iran's parliament that labeled the CIA and the U.S. Army "terrorist organizations." That move came after the U.S. Senate last week approved a similar non-binding resolution, by a 76 to 22 vote, that urged the Bush administration to designate Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist group.

"The aggressor U.S. Army and Central Intelligence Agency are terrorists and also nurture terror," said the Iranian resolution, which was signed by 215 of parliament's 290 members over the weekend.
Ask the world which of these two countries poses the greatest threat to world peace and I'm sure America would be accorded that dishonor.

It will take generations to recover from the destruction wrought by bush and cohorts.
