To F-Off


Reuters is a barrel full of laughs in this piece about Iran's response to Europe's nuclear resolution:

BERLIN (Reuters) - European powers began circulating a draft resolution on Wednesday that asks the U.N. nuclear watchdog to report Iran to the Security Council, drawing a scornful response from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

"It is clear this is politically motivated," he said when asked about the text drafted by France, Britain and Germany.

"We are asking them to step down from their ivory towers and act with a little logic," the youthful president told reporters.

Amazing, huh? Reuters thinks it's important to let us know, in a hard news article about a hardcore Islamofascist anti-Semite, who has called for the destruction of Israel, and who is on the brink of aquiring nuclear weapons, that the anti-Semite is "youthful."

Hitler was the sprightly Chacellor of Germany.

Idi Amin was the robust dictator of Uganda.

Stalin was the vivacious leader of the Soviet Republic.

Let's see what else Reuters thinks it's important to let us know:

The West suspects Iran is seeking nuclear arms. Tehran, which resumed uranium enrichment research last week, says its atomic program aims only to generate electricity.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said nuclear weapons were against Islamic teachings, as well as Iranian interests, but he vowed to pursue atomic energy.

"The Islamic Republic, based on its principles, without being scared of the fuss created, will continue on its path of scientific developments and the world cannot influence the Iranian nation's will," state television quoted him as saying.

"The International Atomic Energy Agency has accepted that we are now part of the atomic club," said Khamenei.

Not so fast there, Khameini. The world community does not at all accept what is going on with your country.

Anyway, isn't Reuters hilarious?
