Does This Surprise Anyone?

Iranian President: Bush Should Be Tried for War Crimes
From Fox News:
"TEHRAN, Iran —
Iran's hard-line president said Saturday the Bush administration should be tried on war crimes charges, and he denounced the West for pressuring Iran to curb its controversial nuclear program.
"You, who have used nuclear weapons against innocent people, who have used uranium ordnance in Iraq, should be tried as war criminals in courts," Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in an apparent reference to the United States.
Ahmadinejad did not elaborate, but he apparently was referring to the U.S. military's reported use of artillery shells packed with depleted uranium, which is far less radioactive than natural uranium and is left over from the process of enriching uranium for use as nuclear fuel.
Since the Iraq war started in 2003, American forces have fired at least 120 tons of shells packed with depleted uranium, an extremely dense material used by the U.S. and British militaries to penetrate tank armor. Once fired, the shells melt, vaporize and turn to dust."
I have been disappointed, but not surprised at all the crazy things said by this guy since he "won" the election earlier this year. As with Hugo Chavez, I'm just hoping people will wake up and do something before saying crazy things turns into doing crazy things.
