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.
we can turn the Persian Gulf to the gulf of peace and friendship
Oh thats funny and no, don't tell me......pigs will fly and muslims will stop committing mass murder around the world...

Surely its a moot point what iran thinks or says it's going to be turned into glass by the IDF anytime soon.
I thought they were rather keener on an additional Piece of Gulf (namely the southern Iraqi oil reserves).

Yes, I can see it now. All foreign troops leave the ME and and the result is no more Iran/Iraq wars, no more Kuwait invasions, no more surprise attacks against Israel, no more fighting in Gaza, no more bashing or oppression of the Kurds. After all, it was foreign troops that started all the other wars in the ME wasn't it?
Simple answer Iran, stop your Islamic fundamentalists operating in Iraq and Afghanistan and get on board with the remainder of the world and respect our way of life. If you need a reference just look at Oman, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain,Kuwait and maybe, just maybe Saudi Arabia
if they stop beheadings and amputations in the name of Sharia law.You have the riches to make your peole happy and prosperous but you won't look after the ordinary Iranian and give them the way of life they so look forward too with your Oil revenue at a all time high.Spend your money in making your country and the people better with hospitals schools,motorways,housing and get rid of the poverty in your country for once and for all.Maybe you will see that being at war with everyone does not mean that you are right and we in the west are wrong.
