Iran and Zimbabwe, just two countries with "independent stances"

This is from IRIB, with the title "Bullying powers, real axis of evil":
Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe said Monday in Harare that bullying powers were the real axis of evil, war and bloodshed in the world.

He made the remarks while receiving the credentials of newly appointed Iranian ambassador to Zimbabwe Rasoul Mo'meni.

Expressing his support for the Islamic Republic of Iran's right to pursue nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, President Mugabe decried the fact that countries which oppose IRI's nuclear activities have ever-increasing atomic arsenals in their own territories.

He said that IRI and Zimbabwe are opposed by big powers because of their independent stances on international issues.
Meanwhile, the BBC reports that "Political problems mount for Ahmadinejad." According to Hans Blix, "the world's approach to Iran's nuclear ambitions humiliated Tehran by insisting it stop research without giving any security guarantees." But still, Mugabe loves them and they just had a successful space launch--or not. (h/t: Lucianne and Daily Alert)
