How can we trust Ahmadinejad to negotiate in good faith over nuclear materiel when he can’t even be trusted in a simple weightlifting competition?
The Iranian team–for the World Weightlifting Championships in the Dominican Republic, to begin Friday–was forced to withdraw after nine of eleven Iranian weighlifters tested positive for doping.
The country cheats in every arena imaginable.
Oh, and what ever happened to that August 31 deadline we gave Ahmadinejad? More of the Speak Loudly and Carry a Toothpick Model that will be our death.
Rodney Dangerfield is laughing from his grave. No wonder we now get less respect than he did.
