When asked recently about the impending presidency of Barack Obama, Iranian President and Bush foe Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that he thinks Obama can change US-Iran relations, and that he will be patient to see what Obama does. Still, Ahmadinejad maintained that if Barack acts like Bush, just "in a new package" the tension will continue.
For starters, Ahmadinejad thinks Obama should focus on what happens at home. He maintained:
The US allows itself to intervene in the affairs of all countries in the world. It should limit its intervention to its own borders.
Obama has made it clear that he wants to engage Iran, and not bully them. Still, international pressure hasn't worked well in getting Iran to abandon uranium enrichment. Do you think Iran will come around under Obama?
