Democracy, freedom big sham in US

iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says US Republican and Democrat parties are two sides of the same coin, and freedom and democracy are nothing but “a big lie”‌ in the country.

The two US parties have been ruling the United States for more than a century, but they pursue the same goals and only differ in their agents, Ahmadinejad said on Monday.

“There is one group behind the curtain that leads the people on, but their objective is one,”‌ he added.

The Iranian president said whenever US officials run out of logic, they resorts to threats of using bombs and imposing an economic siege “and if any one supports them, it's because of fear.”‌

The United States and its allies accuse the Islamic Republic of potentially pursuing a militarized nuclear program and have accordingly used the allegation to push for four rounds of Security Council sanctions and a series of additional unilateral embargoes against Tehran.

Washington and the European Union recently stepped up the pressure on Iran to unprecedented levels by imposing sanctions on the country's crude oil imports and Central Bank. The US-led sanctions have further been accompanied by repeated threats of a military strike against the Islamic Republic.

Iran has categorically denied the charges and maintains that its nuclear program is geared towards civilian purposes including generating electricity. Tehran says as an International Atomic Energy Agency member and a signatory to the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty it is entitled to use civilian nuclear technology.
