RUSH: We got here a little A-B, side-by-side comparison to show you the similarity in philosophy and beliefs of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran and the Democrat presidential nominee, Barack Hussein Obama. Now, there’s not much difference in these two guys except one of them speaks Iranian, and therefore needs a translator. So here’s the first, this on Iraq, America was wrong, Iraq is now occupied six years later. Here’s Ahmadinejad before the UN yesterday.
AHMADINEJAD: Iraq was attacked under the false pretext of uncovering weapons of mass destruction and overthrowing a dictator. The dictator is toppled and WMDs are not uncovered. The Democrat government is established by the votes of the people, but, after six years, the occupiers are still there.
RUSH: Here is Obama. By the way, all of these Obama bites come from July 24th in Berlin. Here’s Obama basically saying the same thing.
OBAMA: This is the moment when the world should support the millions of Iraqis who seek to rebuild their lives, even as we pass responsibility to the Iraqi government and finally bring this war to a close.
RUSH: We gotta get out of there, of course Obama has criticized the lack of WMDs being found and so forth, we didn’t need to put that in. Here is now Ahmadinejad echoing other Obama talking points. This is yesterday at the United Nations, talking about Afghanistan here, terrorism and drugs are spreading, the place is a mess, NATO and America made it worse.
AHMADINEJAD: In Afghanistan, production of narcotics has multiplied since the presence of NATO forces. Domestic conflicts continue, terrorism is spreading, and innocent people are bombarded on a daily basis in streets, markets, schools and wedding ceremonies.
RUSH: NATO forces, that’s us. Ahmadinejad ripping America here, for all the violence and all the horrible things that are going on in Afghanistan. Here is Barack Hussein Obama July 24th, from Berlin.
OBAMA: We must renew our resolve to rout the terrorists who threaten our security in Afghanistan and the traffickers who sell drugs on your streets. No one welcomes war. I recognize the enormous difficulties in Afghanistan. But my country and yours have a stake in seeing that NATO’s first mission beyond Europe’s borders is a success. For the people of Afghanistan and for our shared security, the work must be done.
RUSH: Right. Now, you might say, well, this is not Ahmadinejad. No. He is accepting Ahmadinejad’s premise. He is saying what Ahmadinejad is saying. Ahmadinejad is saying NATO went in there, everything is worse now, drug traffic and all this stuff. Obama says, yeah, we threaten the security in there, there’s terrorists in there, traffickers are selling drugs out there on the streets, nobody welcomes war, but we’ve got a stake in seeing that NATO’s mission works, which means it’s not working. Here is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on world poverty and global warming yesterday at the United Nations.
AHMADINEJAD: Expanding hegemonic domination, destroying the environment, and destroying the social solidarity of nations. There is no end in sight to this. Poverty, hunger, and deprivation are hurting more than one billion of the world’s population and have dashed their hopes for a decent life.
RUSH: Forget that this guy’s insane and his people are starving. It’s not the point here. Here is Barack Hussein Obama on July 24th, Berlin, Germany, on world poverty and global warming caused by American capitalism.
OBAMA: As we speak, cars in Boston and factories in Beijing are melting the ice caps in the Arctic, shrinking coastlines in the Atlantic, and bringing drought to farms from Kansas to Kenya. The poverty and violence in Somalia breeds the terror of tomorrow. The genocide in Darfur shames the conscience of us all.
RUSH: So a recitation of the world’s problems, you can hardly tell the difference here between Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Barack Obama. Now, he said cars in Boston. He put us in there. Here’s Mahmoud, America is at the end of the road.
AHMADINEJAD: American empire in the world is reaching the end of its road, and its next rulers must limit their interference to their own borders. Today, the thought of hegemony quickly becomes a demerit.
RUSH: Obama on the same subject.
OBAMA: I know my country has not perfected itself. At times we’ve struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We’ve made our share of mistakes. And there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.
RUSH: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Barack Obama. Were it not for the translator you might not be able to tell them apart.
