Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has concluded a successful tour of South America. His affable smiles and simple, easy going persona has done more to advance Iran's interests in the world than anything else, in my opinion. He spent much time cutting up and making jokes with OPEC member Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, laughing about their big atomic bomb under the grassy knoll. He found fellowship in OPEC member Ecuador's Rafael Correa, whose country was the object of a failed Coup D'etat by Obama in 2009. He found the Castro's welcoming and re-affirming their solidarity; their Cuba has been the object of one of the most egregious blockades in history. In Nicaragua, Ortega welcomed him with open arms and found much common ground to discuss, including the condemnation of Israel. That's despite any pressures applied by the United States and its minions, of which it still has many. All parties involved stand to benefit greatly from increased ties with each other.
Viva La Revolución!
