Press TV - Ahmadinejad stresses need for a New World Order
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calls for the creation of a new world order in dealing with the many challenges arising in the international political arena.
"What we need now is a dramatic change in world political thought," said President Ahmadinejad in a Tuesday address to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Moscow. "Western-style capitalism is falling apart, marking the end of the age of Imperialism," he added.
Ahmadinejad said the new world order should be less US-centric. "Washington's many political and economic woes show that its judgment can no longer be trusted," he explained.
Iran's Friday election saw Ahmadinejad win 24.5 million of the votes -- nearly 62 percent. Ahmadinejad's main rival, Mir-Hossein Moussavi, came second with 13.2 million votes, followed by Mohsen Rezaei with more than 630 thousand votes and Mehdi Karroubi with 320 thousand votes.
I'm not so sure about the whole rigged election thing. That's quite a piece of vote rigging, to get nearly double the vote of your nearest contender! This post contains much information and links as to why the election probably was not rigged. But most importantly the real ruler of Iran isn't the President, but Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, who no-one votes on anyway.
The fact is, Iran is a theocratic tyranny, and whoever gets elected President, that isn't going to change. Perhaps Ahmadinejad is making sure there isn't a repeat of Operation Ajax (the CIA/MI6-instigated 1953 Iranian revolution) - because he is either bowing to the globalists, or he was a pawn of them all along.
Hard to tell, but in the end it's not really important; the people are what's really important.
