US President Barack Obama is a disappointment to the world, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Wednesday night in an interview with the UK's Channel 4 News.Ahmadinejad mocked Obama's words in his Cairo speech in which he said he was extending his hand to Iran.

"Which hand did he extend? His right hand or left hand?" Ahmadinejad asked wryly. "He extended the sanctions against us." "He has failed to meet the expectations of the people in the US and the people of the world," Ahmadinejad added.The Iranian president continued to reject America's year-end deadline for Teheran to respond to US outreach.

"We have offered a proposal in order to provide opportunity for them, in order to have an opportunity for cooperation instead of confrontation," Ahmadinejad said. "But they are insisting that to have conditions for giving us the fuel.""The story of these claim of US and its allies have turned into a TV series," he added.

Ahmadinejad dug in his heels this week - saying that the US and its allies can set "as many deadlines as they want, we don't care" and that he was not moved. But the US is stressing the upcoming deadline is serious and should be respected.

This is actually very sly on Ahmadinejad's part. He knows Obama is his best friend right now but has to keep the illusion going that Obama is being tough on Iran. This gets the world to think the sanctions mean something and gets people to think Obama isn't helping him. It is staged theatrics.

I know he meant this as a jab, but he does realize that here in the states we use tp and wash both our hands after, right? (At least most of us do, I think...:panic):hehee

I think you've hit it, Dave. Obama, tough, Iran: if there is such a thing as a triple oxymoron, this is one.
