Ahmadinejad Is Joking

I've Been Thinking:
On Sunday morning I read a transcript of a TV interview with Iranian President Ahmadinejad.
It was like reading a sitcom skit.
Ahmadinejad said that the West was not afraid that Iran might be attaining nuclear weapons.
He said Iranian nuclear weapons were not the issue at all for Western nations.
He said that the issue that frightens the West is that Iran is becoming energy independent.
Iranian hierarchy sometimes disseminates disinformation to the Iranian masses. There is a reason for that and we can understand it. But this is so far from reality it is hard to fathom why Ahmadinejad would spin this tale.
The West along with the Middle East region is petrified of Iranian nuclear aspirations.
About the claim of energy independence, that would be a dream come true for the West.
If only everyone would become oil independent, that would mean that the entire region would be left with almost no international, diplomatic or economic leverage. If that were to happen, Iran would be a country like Micronesia - a country most people have never heard of it.
Ahmadinejad - that joke would be on you.
