Iran: How long can debt-laden US remain world power?

“How long can a government with a $16,000 trillion foreign debt remain a world power?” he asked at a press conference with Kuwaiti media personnel. “The Americans have injected their paper wealth into the world economy and today the aftermaths and negative effects of their pseudo-wealth have plagued them.”

Ahmadinejad also predicted that the West would soon drop their alliance with the “Zionist regime,” saying that Westerners and US politicians are increasingly “at a loss” as to why Israel exists.

Despite his country’s reeling economy, Ahmadinejad questioned who was really suffering under the sanctions. “These sanctions are in fact imposed against the European countries,” he charged. “It has now been five years that they have imposed sanctions against Iran, but the question is, which one is experiencing tougher economic conditions, the EU, or the Islamic Republic?”
