It has been almost a month since Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the U.N. and the rest of the World that the Holocaust was a crock of poo-poo, that Israel is a regime that "won't last long" and then continued on to talk about Iran's full-speed-ahead nucular (sic) program.
That takes a gigantic set of balls, even bigger than self proclaimed genius and world proclaimed douchebag Kanye West after his embarrassing stunt on stage with Taylor Swift. Even Tiger Woods can't come close with his last transparent and honey-do forced news conference apologizing for his few hundred isolated incidents of infidelity. Yes, it takes a set of balls so big that a even a bad case of elephantiasis pales in comparison. For crying out loud, even Germany said Ahmadinejad was a "disgrace to his country".
The really sad part of this ridiculousness is that there will be some weak minded, gullible and just plain stupid people out there who will believe this garbage. (Insert teenager, Democrat, hippie, etc. joke here)
A scarry parallel to this story is the denial of the holocaust by some muslims. As early as 2005, stories popped up about schools is Great Britain that were dropping the Holocaust from their curriculum for fear of sparking anti-semitism in the growing muslim student body.
To be fair, there are plenty of ass hat Americans who believe this nonsense also, that the systematic torture, rape and murder of 6 million + Jews was just an elaborate scheme, like the Moon landing or the attacks on September 11. But I am not worried about this event being left out of textbooks or forgotten as there is plenty of evidence to support what happened. President Eisenhower did a great job of documentating and archiving the photos and video of the death camps.
I read a chian email that mentioned Iran's dimissal of the Holocaust and then, in a dramatic attempt to drum up semitic sympathy and perhaps a swell of national pride, made a statement that the same radical statements might be said about the attacks on September 11- that they never happened. I don't think this will happend becuase there are too many conspiracy theorists, a.k.a. bat-shit crazies, who believe it was a government planned inside job. As long as they can keep that idea alive the muslims have no hope of erasing it from history. Look at the JFK assassination for proof of the perpetuitity of conspiracy theories.
Getting back to Iran, it is very surprising to me that he is still alive. I don't know if he is another one of the U.S. puppet dictators gone awry or if we are waiting for Israel to finally get fed up and kamikaze a Big Bertha into Ahmadinejad's location. The press gives a fair share of airtime to this lunatic but it seems that nobody is going to do anything about it. Obama will continue to give a stern warning but, like the rest of his administration and present term in office, won't do shit about it. The U.N. is nothing more than a subsitute teacher with little power to do anything but send Ahmadinejad to the office for punishment. Unfortunately, we are usually the principal in world afffairs (see sentence above).
I really think a dramatic and unbelievable turn of events is on the horizon with Iran, Russia, Israel and the other muslim countries who are still pissed that Israel occupies less than 1% of Arab lands. I'm talking James Cameron and Michael Bay dramatic with a bit of 2012 disaster thrown in for the real men who love action/disaster flicks.
