An Unfunny Joke

As Iran was testing long range missiles ? which, as Matt Drudge underscored in his headline, ‘can reach Israel’—Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ?dismissed fears that Israel and the United States could be preparing to attack his country, calling the possibility a ?funny joke.??

Yeah, but is anyone laughing?  I doubt it, but the sheer craziness of this guy is scary ? especially if you?re an Iranian. After all, the US is sending in terrorist operatives, and daily threatening war, while a resolution calling for a blockade of their country is likely to be approved by the US Congress. So what does their President have to say?: ??I assure you that there won’t be any war in the future,? Ahmadinejad told a news conference Tuesday during a visit to Malaysia for a summit of developing Muslim nations.?

Whatever Senor Ahmadinejad is smoking, I want some. In any case, this does nothing for his reputation as a hard-liner.
