Why did the United Nations try to silence Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took centre stage at the United Nations but his attack on the “unjust West” failed to be heard, as all live translation of his speech was cut by the translators at the UN.

Ahmadinejad was heard saying “There’s no translation” barely a minute into his speech, before the following announcement was made; “The interpreters would like to state that they are reading from a written text translated into English.”

With that, all live translation of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech stopped altogether.

The President managed to communicate his message that there is a need for an overhaul of what he called “undemocratic and unjust” global decision-making bodies and challenged the US to accept that his country has a major role in world affairs.

The Akh stands to reason that perhaps the military industrial complex twinned with the right wing republican/fundamentalist christian/zionist nexus is at work – particularly as the war drums for attacking Iran are beating louder then ever – with the Americans being pushed to attack Iran by their israelite masters.

So much for freedom of speech?

Sidelined at the UN summit, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad explained how he wants to change the existing world order, as the biggest trouble facing the world is domination by the United States, as told to RT;

So how dangerous is Iran, I mean really?

Glenn Greenwald and Dylan Ratigan discuss the neocon inspired warmongering for an attack on Iran, and in the process pretty much destroy all the rhetoric currently doing the rounds:

If you did watch the above video, then great, if not the following sums bit of banter sums it all up:

Dylan Ratigan: “You are a war monger, you want to attack Iran the same way you attacked Iraq”

Cliff May: “The Iranian regime says death to america and writes death to america…isn’t that warmongering?”

Dylan Ratigan: (Laughingly) “Are you telling me that you want american soldiers and hundreds of millions of dollars and human life, blood shed by hundreds of thousands of innocent individuals, because they called you a name? you sound like a six year old, and with all due respect, if the best that you got is that a few people said death to america, then I actually feel bad for beating you up, it’s absurd”

Cliff May: “writing death to america on the side of a missile is not name calling, it’s kind of a threat…and americans watching Ahmadinejad on TV concerns them”

Dylan Ratigan: “What concerns me is that the use of my tax money to fund american soldiers and american weapons in the middle east to subordinate other middle easterns who are much poorer, so the ones we claim to defend in one country, we give the guns to a king in another country so he can do the same thing, and it’s the hypocrisy what is the root of this whole thing in the middle east, period.”

It’s a bit like talking to a lobotomised automaton who can only repeat the same worn out lines, over and over and over….still good to see that the american media has wisened up somewhat and are beginning to weed out the extremists in their own backyard.

* Cliff May is the president of Washington based thinktank The Foundation for Defense of Democracies. A pro zionist neo con front, palpably obvious from their role call of staff and affiliates.
