Iran's president: No one likes Americans

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, heading home after a two-day visit to Iraq, again touted his country's closer relations with Iraq and reiterated his criticism of the United States.

“No one likes them,” Ahmadinejad told reporters prior to returning to Iran, referring to the predominantly U.S. makeup of coalition forces in Iraq.


This kind of rhetoric can only be balanced out by a strategic “I’m rubber; you’re glue” counter-offensive.
