Iran calls for 'Gulf of Peace'

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president, speaking in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, has called for "foreign troops" to leave the Gulf.

Ahmadinejad, whose two-day visit to the UAE is the first by an Iranian president since 1979, also called on Sunday for the two nations to build closer trade and diplomatic ties.

"We all wish that foreign troops would leave the region and give a chance to countries in the region to establish security in the region themselves," Iran's semi-official Mehr news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying during a meeting with Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, the UAE president.

"With each other's help, we can turn the Persian Gulf to the gulf of peace and friendship."

The United Arab Emirates is an important regional hub for the US military.
so we leave and the gulf becomes a United Islamic Republic.

Well it's an understandable sentiment and it does make him sound peace loving and statesmanlike. It also leaves the way open for Iran to acquire Iraq by "other" means.
I disagree :)
I don't think it makes him sound peace loving and statesman like at all.
I think it sounds like he's just trying to drive a wedge between the REAL peace loving Arab states and the West.
Ah but real peace loving states in the Middle East don't vote in our elections. This man is simply sucking up to the home market. I agree that he is not a statesman by any stretch of fantasy.
It depends on how much stock Am mad in a hat has with Al Jazeera.. :D

These guy's can put the papparazzi to shame when it comes to playing with the press, they know CNN and all will undoubtably bring this up for discussion so all the half-wits with Phd's after their names can have a say as to what they "really" mean...

Peace loving states...yer right didn't Stalin use the same line... :wink:
