U.S., Iranian presidents share U.N. spotlight

United Nations (CNN) - For years it was a United Nations General Assembly annual ritual: Iran's president would denounce the United States, and the American president would fire back. But this year the talks in New York are brimming with the possibility of diplomacy.

A meeting has not been scheduled between U.S. President Barack Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, both of whom will speak Tuesday before the General Assembly. Both sides, however, remain open to possibilities.

    America is the root of all terror. America has invaded sixty countries since world war 2.
    In 1953 America overthrow Iran's democratic government Mohammad Mosaddegh and installed a brutal dictator Shah. America helped Shah of Iran to establish secret police and killed thousands of Iranian people.
    During Iran-Iraq war evil America supported Suddam Hossain and killed millions of Iranian people. In 1989, America, is the only country ever, shot down Iran's civilian air plane, killing 290 people.
    In 2003,America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and 4,000,000+ Iraqi people were displaced.
    Now America is a failed state with huge debt. Its debt will be 22 trillion by 2015.

    Let's all hope and pray that the U.S. and Iran will somehow come together at the UN. Continuing the current animosity is nothing but idiocy at it's very worst although there are far too many right-wing nut jobs and politicians who like it! We need to ignore these ignoble people and forge ahead!
