Ahmadinejad: `We humiliated America once before, we will do it again'

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is in the news again. This time , he was weighing in on the so-called scorned U.N Security Council sanctions imposed against Iran, and told the crowd Tuesday Iran had 'humiliated' America in the past and would do so again.

Seeing as he was one of the `students' who helped take American hostages in 1979, he has first hand knowledge of that humiliation.

Ahmadinejad said in a speech in the city of Ahvaz today that the Security Council's resolution last month was invalid.

"Let the world know that from the Iranian nation's point of view, this resolution has no validity," Ahmadinejad said.

He said the US was behind the `sanctions', and warned the US: "I want you to know that the Iranian nation has humiliated you many times, and it will humiliate you in future."

Ahmadinejad said the sanctions were not important but were part of a campaign of psychological warfare against Iran, and that Iran had done everything it could to prove that its nuclear program is peaceful, but the West was trying to stop Iran from developing.

"We have tried all legal, wise and logical ways to convince these corrupt and selfish powers," he said.
