Check This: Iran World's "Number One Power"

American politicians aren't the only ones who accuse their domestic opponents of siding with the enemy. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad came out strong against a diverse set of Iranians who are criticizing his reckless rhetoric and dangerous nuclear program.

The president told the national audience that everybody has understood that Iran is the number one power in the world. He said: "Today the name of Iran means a firm punch in the teeth of the powerful and it puts them in their place." Iran faces growing pressure from the UN Security Council, and Russia has just announced that it will support economic sanctions.

On Sunday, Ahmadinejad will be the first president of the Islamic Republic of Iran to travel to its neighbor and historical adversary — Iraq. Despite the potentially positive visit, are you still deeply troubled by Ahmadinejad?
