"Capitalism is on the verge of death"--Ahmadinejad

(Reuters)-- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday told a U.N. General Assembly session on poverty that capitalism was on the verge of death and that it was time for a new economic system.

In light of this sophisticated, insightful observation by a man known for his analysis in the fields of economics and government, I suggest the U.S. rep to the UN [spit] say this:
A few days ago the president of Iran said capitalism was on the verge of death. Since the rest of the world seems to think he's a smart guy, the U.S. government has decided to believe him. Accordingly, since we're so near the end, we've decided to end all foreign aid--including the millions of tons of food the U.S. has historically given to countries stricken by drought or floods.

So if you're a resident of such a country, and have been expecting the customary aid from the U.S., it's not coming. If this causes you any problems, feel free to voice your complaints to the president of Iran, since he's the one who warned us that capitalism was nearing its end.
Too bad no one in government has the stones to authorize that speech.
