Iranian President Ahmadinejad is no stranger to making strange comments. His most famous comment was the Holocaust didn't really happen. His distrust of mainstream media lead him to do this interview with UWGB-Beek.
UWGB-Beek: What are you up to these days?
Ahmadinejad: I am up to my normal stuff:making fun of the United States, raising oil prices, giving money to groups that like guns, and spending time reading the Quran.
UWGB-Beek: The United Nations is mad at you for what they see as acts of terrorism. What do you say about those claims?
Ahmadinejad: I am just a misunderstood leader who is trying to make as many allies as possible, but the United States isn't helping my cause. Their press tries to label me as crazy. Is it crazy to want your people to have cheap power?
UWGB-Beek: That cheap power you talk about can also be used in weapons.
Ahmadinejad: I am not a violent person. I like to think cheap power could help transform Iran into a place for manufactures. We have cheap labor here, and people that only require a few breaks during the day.
UWGB-Beek: So you don't think the United States is correct in their assumption that you might use the stuff for evil?
Ahmadinejad: Please define evil? Because I think my definition is a little different.
UWGB-Beek: Evil is the intention harm or destruction of a thing for your own personal gain.
Ahmadinejad: I don't plan on harming anyone. I don't know where people get this idea I want to harm people. Sure, I said I wanted to get rid of Israel, but that is me just showing my funny side. I was being sarcastic. Couldn't you see that on my face?
UWGB-Beek: I guess the world thought you were serious, because you have mentioned it a couple of times.
Ahmadinejad: That is how I open most of my speaches, you know, with a good joke.
UWGB-Beek: Do you think this will clear things up with the rest of the world, and the United Nations will lift their sanctions against you?
Ahmadinejad: Those pigs won't do anything, because they can't handle me sense of humor.
