Iran Says U.S. Must Apologize

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday said the west, mainly the U.S., should apologize to Iran fro accusing it of trying to develop a nuclear weapon and said his country would continue to resist international pressure to halt its nuclear energy program.
" Today they tell our nation that nuclear energy is a bad thing and it is not necessary for our people to have it. But the nation of Iran has stood(for its right)," he said in a televised speech to mark the Iranian new year. " Those who head war and crimes accused the Iranian nation of war seeking. They insulted our nation. I do advise them to apologize."
If I am not mistaken I believe they have been calling us the " great Satan" for years, and let us not forget the Iranian hostage crisis, and they say we insult them?
Iran insists its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, but western countries who believe otherwise have pushed for United Nations action, including possible sanctions against Iran.
I am under the impression that if that wanted purely energy they would't have turned down the offer presented to them bye the Russians. This president is doing everything in his power to provoke us to attack him. If he wants to bring that much death to his people the international community will see how crazy he really is.
