Delivering a speech to the United Nations General Assembly, President Ahmadinejahd had this to say about the nature of nuclear weapons.
"Regrettably, due to distancing of some States from the teachings of the Divine Prophets, the shadow of the threat of nuclear bombs is cast over the whole world,
"The nuclear bomb is a fire against humanity rather than a weapon for defense.
"The possession of nuclear bombs is not a source of pride; it is rather disgusting and shameful. And even more shameful is the threat to use or to use such weapons, which is not even comparable to any crime committed throughout the history."
Without engaging in ad homs as to Ahmadinejad's motives, what he said is right on target.
