Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addresses the 63rd General Assembly of the United Nations

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad just completed his remarks to the 63rd General Assembly of the United Nations in New York.  The chairs usually occupied by the UN delegation representing the United States of America were noticeably empty, and the seats reserved for the Israeli delegation were empty except for what appeared to be a low-level staffer taking notes during the speech.

During  Pres. Ahmadinejad's 30-minute speech,  he touched on the situation in Iraq, African colonialism, the desire for Western hegemonic power, and Zionism's effect on the world.

Earlier, Pres. Bush delivered his 8th and final message to the UN.  Though most of the representatives appeared bored during his rambling speech, they still gave Pres. Bush a polite applause once he ended his remarks.

I'll bet you didn't know that Pres. Ahmadinejad is a blogger. This is not an endorsement, but it is very interesting to read some of the comments from across the globe.  If you are interested go to http://www.ahmadinejad.ir/
