This is what the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told Piers Morgan:

“Do you believe that anyone is giving birth through homosexuality? Homosexuality ceases procreation. Who has said that if you like or believe in doing something ugly, and others do not accept your behavior, that they’re denying your freedom? … Proper education must be given. If a group recognizes an ugly behavior or ugly deed as legitimate, you must not expect other countries or other groups to give it the same recognition.”

Like most people, I hope we can avoid war with Iran. Bombing this nation would rally the population behind an unpopular and oppressive regime of tyrants. The United States already has enough on its hands without another Middle East battle — which will shed more blood and cost more treasure. It will put Israel in the path of a flood of missiles, as well as its Arab neighbors that are US allies. If war can be avoided, that would be best for all parties involved, no doubt about it.

That said, I can’t imagine letting unbalanced holocaust denying, gay-hating fiends like the zealots who lead Iran have access to nuclear bombs. Their Medieval minds simply can’t be trusted to act rationally — and all one has to do is listen to Ahmadinejad for five minutes to realize he’s a bit loopy.

Now, if we are forced to bomb Iran’s nuclear labs — which, again, I want to stress is undesirable on so many levels — I just want to say for the record that I hope that this arrogant and bigoted creep meets the same fate as Saddam Hussein. The world will be a better and safer place without Ahmadinejad’s corrosive and contemptible presence on the international stage.

He truly is the face of evil.
