Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has – again – told the world to get bent.
TEHRAN (Reuters) – Negotiations over Iran's nuclear enrichment activities would be meaningless because the country has a legal right to pursue the technology, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying on Sunday.
The West suspects Tehran is developing its nuclear program to produce atomic weapons but Iran says it is only pursuing a means to produce electricity for civilian needs.
Tehran has defied U.N. resolutions calling on it to suspend uranium enrichment, and on Sunday Ahmadinejad rejected the idea of holding talks on the issue.
"It is meaningless to hold talks over Iran's obvious and legal right to nuclear technology," the news agency ISNA quoted him as saying.
The American left continues to push for taxpayer-funded handouts for anyone who is in the country – legally or not – and ignores the real threats in the world. Politics as usual, I suppose.
