Tehran, Iran, Feb. 01 Irans hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad blasted on Wednesday United States President George W. Bushs State of the Union address, while insisting that the Islamic Republic would push ahead with its nuclear activities at all costs.
Bush in his 2006 annual State of the Union address on Tuesday declared that Iran must not be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons. Highlighting Tehran’s nuclear ambitions, Bush said that the Islamic Republic was defying the world. The nations of the world must not permit the Iranian regime to gain nuclear weapons. America will continue to rally the world to confront these threats.
Speaking in a crowd in the southern province of Bushehr, Ahmadinejad said, The Iranian nation has chosen the path of progress and will continue its proud path regardless of your rants.
We will continue with force on our path to use nuclear technology while ignoring the bullying [of the West”>, Ahmadinejad added.
Our nation will continue its nuclear path until full realisation of its rights, the hard-line President added.
The time for your bulling and unrighteous actions has reached its end. Today is the time for the rule of the nations and human piety which is being led by the Iranian nation.
Today, the world is stuck with a regime (U.S.) which does not know anything other than bullying, oppression, war, and occupation and forces corrupt regimes [to be in power”> in other nations. Its hands are seen wherever there is oppression, corruption, or war and it does not allow nations to use their potentials to make progress, Ahmadinejad said.
He described the U.S. as impudent, claiming that it had armed Israel with weapons of mass destruction.
They have armed a usurper regime near us with all sorts of chemical and biological weapons and they tell our nation with outright impudence that we are not even allowed to carry out technological research, he said.
Nuclear energy is our right, and we will resist until this right is fully realised.
To chants of Death to America, Ahmadinejad said that the U.S. could go and die from its anger towards Irans stance on the nuclear issue.
The Iranian nation is not a threat rather it is mercy, but with its hard fists has always and will forever chant Death of the bully (U.S.), he added.
