Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Mugabe to address Copenhagen...

Renowned research scientists all three.

COPENHAGEN ?Iranian Prime Minister Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe plan to address negotiators at international climate talks in Copenhagen next week.

The three leaders are listed in a line-up of more than 180 government officials published in a United Nations schedule of speakers. Each head of state will have up to three minutes to address roughly 700 delegates, reporter, observers and civil society groups.

The assistant president of Sudan, Nafie Ali Nafie kicks off the speeches at noon on Wednesday.

Nafie chairs the G-77 group, a block of developing nations pushing hard for more money and stricter emissions cuts from rich countries.

Yep! Pushing hard for more money.

I deleted the all-too-expected response, and am closing this sub-thread. It serves no purpose to the topic and will only generate more useless responses.

I'm all for free speech

It's just a shame that Mugabe and Ahmadinejad don't practice the same in their own countries. I don't know about Chavez, although I suspect he's the same.

On the flip side....

Dictators/despots of their ilk have such super-inflated egos and mediocre IQs they can't help letting their true colors shine through when they open their mouths.

Chavez is trying to start a war with Colombia. Who do you think will win? I doubt it would be Chavez.

I've not had such an interesting communist around to watch since the days of Kruschev! We've all had to go through a long dry spell since the amusing antics of Baghdad Bob ended. Now we have Hugo Chavez to laugh at.

"I'm leaving," said Yousef Diakite, a representative from the Pan-African Parliament. "I'm unhappy, disappointed, not glad. Everyone was waiting for Copenhagen. This was our chance. And today it is over."

I guess the world is DOOMED now!

Boo hoo hoo.

...ticks didn't find enough blood to suck being offered from the richer nations. Oh well, they'll have to come up with a better scam, or just do some honest begging again.
