Ahmadinejad predicts the end of American civilization...

... while sounding, at times, much like your typical American leftist, one you might read at The Huffington Post or The Daily Koz (or in the comments at WizBang):

"I believe that 22 Bahman [ February 11 in the Persian calendar] this year marks the demise of the liberal capitalist system." Ahmadinejad said.
 
The controversial Iranian president explained that, 30 years ago, Iran was merely trying to consolidate its newly minted revolution. Today, however, the country was quickly moving to overtake what he claimed was a declining United States.
 
"Maybe in 1359-60 [1980-81] our presence was only an announcement of our existence and strength," he said. "It was to consolidate the revolution. Where have we got now? We have got to a point that the hegemony of arrogance [reference to the United States] has been undermined. Nations do not trust it anymore. Its principles are under question. Its efficiency is close to zero. Its power curve is dropping quickly."
 
Ahmadinejad claimed that Iran was an "inspiring" and "justice-seeking" country, which was just being "introduced to the world."
 
"On the other hand, the Iranian nation is being introduced around the world as an inspiring, idealistic, revolutionary, God-seeking, justice-seeking, pure and humane nation."
 
Ahmadinejad continued the narrative of America's impending doom in a speech Saturday, Jan. 30, claiming that the Iranian revolution was the final step in God's plan for the world.
 
"God created mankind ... to reach a point that it could have control over the world of creation and days and nights," Ahmadinejad said. "It is clear to all of us that the Islamic Revolution today is a giant stride toward the implementation of this great goal. The Islamic Revolution is in the direction, and of the same nature of, the great prophet's move. It is guided by God."
 
Ahmadinejad further said that the West, particularly the United States, had been the "biggest historical impediment" to the Islamic Revolution.
 
"The arrogant and hegemonic powers, which mankind experienced in the past 300 years - and past 60 years in particular - have been the biggest historical impediment in the face of fulfillment of this goal," he said, according to the BBC.
 
Ahmadinejad went on to declare that the "materialistic and hegemonic system" was dead and "slogans" about "freedom," "human rights," and "democracy" had misled the world.
 
"It is clear that the materialistic and hegemonic system has reached the end of the road, both theoretically and practically," he said. "Forty years ago when someone mentioned the name of America, many would drool. In the minds of many, America had a mythical and invincible power."
 
"Slogans of freedom, human rights, democracy, and the right to decide your own fate, were so attractive that [they] misled many," he continued. "Today, they have no thoughts or means other than the use of arms to prove themselves."
 
The fiery Iranian leader predicted the "end" of American "civilization."

Don't you half expect the man to declare his Congressional candidacy from somewhere in California?  Or couldn't he step in Jeremiah Wright's shoes at a moment's notice?

Seriously.

Perhaps another outreach to Iran to create
a "dialogue" to begin again to iron our
differences at a table he will refuse

MSM lauds our CinC for his "measured"
response.

We elected a nobody to lead this country.

Sir Toby - Obama is probably planning a bowing tour to ensure they dont get too mad at us.

Really? Or are you engaged in the very same hate-filled, over-the-top wacky vitriol Ahmadinejad engages in?

Which, ahem, makes you more similar to Ahmadinejad than I am.

Ahmadinejad hates America.

Rick hates liberal America.

Difference? Little or none.

Of course, Israel, and good on them.

It will cause Obama quite a dilemma, since afterwards, there will be no one in Iran to apologize or bow to.

Looks like push was right.

Electing the one who we have been waiting for does not seem to have changed Islamic hate for the USA.
The radicals don't seem to care BHO has an Islamic half sister.

It seems that in the real world Principled view triumphs over rhetorical flourish.

Liberal seem to feel that conservatives and republicans are the manifestation of evil and those people that call for American decline pose no real threat.

If we had had a real president back in 1979 rather than the little-old-lady-in-tennis-shoes Jimmy Carter, Iran's attack on the US Embassy and the subsequent hostage-taking probably would have resulted in one.
