Tehran, Iran, Feb. 23 – Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said late Wednesday that the toppling of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein had turned the country into a “strong bastion” in defence of Iran’s Islamic revolution.

Ahmadinejad was speaking in Shahre-Kord in the south-western province of Chahar Mahal va Bakhtiyari Wednesday night, the state-run news agency ISNA reported.

“Those who imagined that by removing Saddam they would create a power base in the region today see that, through the blessing of the Islamic revolution, Iraq has been transformed into a strong bastion in defence of the Islamic revolution”, Ahmadinejad said.

“The Islamic revolution is the flag-bearer of people’s freedom from the dominant Arrogance (U.S.) and the Order of Plunder (the West)”, Ahmadinejad said.

He said that the roots of all of the world’s problems were in the “existence of a few hegemonic countries”.

The hard-line president added that for the past 27 years, the West had been forced to retreat and the “revolutionary front of the Iranian nation” was moving forward.

“In Palestine, the hegemonic regime had created a base for itself and chanted the slogan ‘from the Nile to the Euphrates’ but today despite the enemies’ wide-scale propaganda the Palestinian nation has with the highest level of innocence empty-handedly cornered the illegitimate regime of Israel and is constantly gaining victories”, Ahmadinejad said.
