Ahmadinejad: "US, UK behind terror acts in Iraq"

Mahmoud's trip to Sudan continues. The present article begins with a good example of psychological projection (or its propaganda equivalent). From IRIB:
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday that America and Britain assist terrorists to make Iraq insecure and sow seed of discord among various ethnic groups to justify their presence in the country.

The chief executive made the remark at a gathering of Sudanese intellectuals and university instructors at the friendship hall of the capital city of Khartoum on the second day of his visit to Sudan.

"This is while, the two usurper powers attacked Iraq on the pretext of its possession of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). But today, after four years more than 150,000 innocent Iraqi people have been either killed or wounded," he added.

The president said that the Zionists create insecurity and discord in the Middle East to sow discords, adding that they are almost involved in all regional tensions.

He said that upon victory in the World War II, the bullying powers organized the international bodies such that they will formulate their relations with other nations based on the equation of winners and losers of war.

"The veto right granted to some countries is a consequence of such an approach. According to this illegal right, no country and government can ever lodge complaints against America and Britain at the United Nations Security Council.

"This is while, they can condemn other countries by using veto within the UNSC framework," he added.

Ahmadinejad noted that it should actually be said that the UNSC has been established to defend the big powers rather than promote the security of world nations.

The president also pointed to prevention of development and progress of nations as another problem encountered at the present age.

"Today, Iranian youth and intellectuals have managed to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes and that the country's nuclear activities are fully conducted according to international laws. Meanwhile, those countries possessing atomic bomb, which are a threat to world nations, are against the access of other nations to nuclear technology," he said.

The President referred to unity among Muslims as the only way to overcome the enemies conspiracies, adding that today a great burden is laid upon the shoulders of the true followers of divine religions, who should attempt to thwart the hostile threats through unity and empathy.

On the second day of his tour of Sudan, the President is expected to meet a number of Iranian citizens residing in Khartoum.
