My thoughts about Piers Morgan's interview with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

I have been receiving several emails from people who read my blogs asking me what my thoughts were about the latest interview Piers Morgan did with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad about a week or so ago.

First and foremost, I thought the questions were quite boring, moderately self indulgent, and well, a little banal which left me disappointed. As much as I enjoy Piers Morgan, this interview was definitely not one of my favorites.

I have to admit, I thought that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke relatively prudently despite the fact that I don't agree with several things that he says and does. He does appear slightly cunning, but who are we to determine such? If anything, he is guilty of being modestly outspoken. I think as a political figure, he seems dramatically ambitious, especially regarding his emphasis on reform. With that said, I don't understand why people use religion as a weapon to justify an action let alone use religion to run a government. It's clear Ahmadinejad uses Islam to rule Iran. 

I don't agree with a lot of what Mr. Ahmadinejad says, but I don't see him encouraging the conflict created by distorted international relations. This kind of distortion is created by those that love exaggerating to create afflictions (fake news) to test allies and prevent political stability. I don't see Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a threat, but it is possible I am wrong. I do think the most threatening individual(s) are those that we don't know. Yes, the "personality" that is evil is one that we will not see until something does happen. There is no connection to what one believes is "obvious" simply because that person's decorum is embellished and tested by media and the status quo masses that follow. The people I believe who are in the spotlight are merely puppets of the real master behind it all. Someone is definitely pulling Ahmadinejad's strings and I don't think it is Allah. 

I am proud to be an American, but I truly believe the reality is this; the killing of millions of individuals for the sake of thousands contradicts and undermines human's natural rights to a sizable degree of social harm. It is wrong and should never be supported as okay unless it is necessary. I think the only solution to this issue is for allies of the countries to simply stop meddling into political affairs they are not a part of.

What more is there to say about this interview? The questions were so weak, the interview was poor. I kind of feel bad for Piers because he embarassed himself. The questions were gastly and reminded me of a high school news reporter or something.
