Latest from the The League of Villains: Ahmadinejad awards Chavez

Three months ago on Marathon Pundit, I remarked that Iran was cozying up to anti-American and pariah states such as Venezuela, Sudan, and Cuba, forming a League of Villains.

Another League of Villains was formed by King Goobot to oppose Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius.

On Sunday in Tehran one villain recognized another. President Mahmud Ahmadinejad of Iran awarded in Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez its highest honor, the Order of the Islamic Republic of Iran, First Grade.

From the Tehran Times:

During the ceremony at the University of Tehran, Ahmadinejad said the Middle East should free itself from the West's tyranny, adding that the West imposed the Zionists on Middle Eastern nations for two reasons: because of World War II and because their ancestors used to live in Palestine over 2,500 years ago.

"If such a rule is applicable, shouldn't all the world's borders be changed? Who were the inhabitants of the United States some 250 years ago?" he asked.

A bit more from the same article:

The award was bestowed upon the Venezuelan president to honor his valuable and brave efforts to establish a justice-based peace, his stance against the hegemonic system, and his support for endeavors to maintain the freedom and independence of the Venezuelan nation.
