Ahmadinejad on Suicide Bombing: Not as Good as the Coming Messiah, but Not Bad at All

It shouldn't really be news that Ahmadinejad is a vile man who says and does vile things, but I feel like we should countinue pointing it out, since Ahmadinejad is getting quite a cozy reception in many stops on his pub tour of the U.S.

Here's his take on suicide bombers:

Ahmadinejad was asked by an NBC journalist how he would feel if his child became a suicide bomber.

Ahmadinejad, who often bounced questions back on his interviewer, asked the reporter what he would like his own son to do.

'What would you like your son to do?' Ahmadinejad said. 'Would you like him to defend America? I think you would like that.

'It's the same with our people. If you don't have arms, what would you do? It's not a bad thing. The war was imposed on the Middle East,' Ahmadinejad said.

They're Minutemen! Freedom fighters!

Update: More from that discussion (I think it's the same presser), Ahmadinejad says he don't want no bomb. "Where would y'all get an idea like that?"
