Iran to help Bolivia "annihilate Imperialism soon"

How often do news headlines in Iran feature the word "annihilate"? Once a day?
Bolivian President Evo Morales said on Wednesday that his country would annihilate Imperialism soon with the support of anti-Imperialist states.

Speaking at Iran's Parliament, Morales endorsed anti-Imperialist states and said, "we will annihilate Imperialism soon with the help of anti-Imperialist countries."

"Imperialism has long ruled our economy, but I tried to change the infrastructures from the beginning of my term in office and I nationalized gas and petrol," he added.

He then turned to the US recent coup in Latin America, saying that, "their coup was defeated by Venezuela in 2002, they also mounted a coup in Bolivia in 2008 where we defeated them and expelled the US ambassador."

He also emphasized Iran's support for Bolivia and said, "we are in need of cooperation with Iran in all fields."

Bolivian President arrived in Iran on Sunday evening for a four-day visit.

He was officially welcomed by Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at presidential office on Tuesday.

Evo Morales leaves Tehran on Wednesday.

Iran and Bolivia are to sign Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) on industry and agriculture.

Morales is the second Latin American President who has visited Iran over last week.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has visited Iran before Morales.
You've just spent a hard day annihilating imperialism. Time to relax with a little soccer (futsal, actually):
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his visiting Bolivian counterpart Evo Morales have taken part in an exhibition futsal match. [...]

In the match, Morales passed the ball to the Iranian president and Ahmadinejad scored a goal for the Iranian-Bolivian presidential team. [...]
The Supreme Leader was not able to participate due to a knee injury.
