I WANT A DEBATE WITH BUSH!
In case you didn't know,confidence is power.I remember been told/reminded that fact some years ago when my mentors were injecting in me "the powers" that they always believed and wanted me to posses. I am not sure whether that was a success but I am comfortable that at least the bells that keeps me awake when needed to, sings the same tunes;confidence is power!
The Iranian president, Mr.Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is one man who is a living proof of a marriage between confidence and power.He is confident, too confident to the extent that all of us are most of times left to wonder,where does his confidence come from? Faith?God?Islam? Questions after questions.
Few months ago Mr.Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had written this open letter to Untied States president,George W.Bush. Neither Mr.Bush himself or his white house administration ever responded.If they did,then they never made it public as he did.Lack of confidence? Perhaps after that long silence from Washington the Iranian president now wants a live televised debate with not anyone else but same Yale University graduate,who went on to become Untied States president. He is even questioning the UN's security council authority. Now that is confidence,isn't it?
On top of the list is an interesting food for thought on what if George Bush turns down this offer? What will his reason be? Can't debate with a terrorist? What will you think after having falled in love and always believed in western democracies of debating almost everything even those which were traditionally forbiden for debates?I am waiting to hear the response from Dark House. If you are lucky please watch President Mahmoud's interview with CBS correspondent Mike Wallace here.
