I just ripped out the bulk of the propagandistic blather from a rather long AP piece on Ahmadinejad's outrageously intelligent take on the root cause of poverty. You can go read the whole thing, but, I'm not kidding, they're just tickling every outright FALSE idea ever implanted in your unsuspecting mind and this is the bit that actually says something important:
UNITED NATIONSIran's president on Tuesday predicted the defeat of capitalism and blamed global big business for the suffering of millions....

The clash of visions at the U.N. anti-poverty summit drew a line under the stark differences on easing the misery of the one billion people living on less than $1.25 a day.


[Ignore for the moment the egregious understatement of the egregious problem.]

More than 140 presidents, prime ministers and kings are attending the three-day summit which started Monday to assess and spur on achievement of U.N. targets set by world leaders in 2000. The plan called for an intensive global campaign to ease poverty, disease and inequalities between rich and poor by 2015.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ... took aim at capitalism and called for the overhaul of "undemocratic and unjust" global decision-making bodies, which are dominated by the United States and other Western powers. While Ahmadinejad didn't single out any country, he said world leaders, thinkers and global reformers should "spare no effort" to make practical plans for a new world order — reform of international economic and political institutions.

"It is my firm belief that in the new millennium, we need to revert to the divine mindset...based on the justice-seeking nature of mankind...now that the discriminatory order of capitalism and the hegemonic approaches are facing defeat."

And to be replaced by Beelzebub himself... I mean, face it, you want a job done right, you gotta do it yourself.

BE AFRAID....

    We sure have been peddling backwards, haven't we!

  2. Yes, and considering we could accomplish it all in a New York Minute, the time frame for it was fucking despicable as well.
