Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the visiting Hugo Chavez joined forces yesterday in slamming US “imperialism” and seeking “a new world order,” al-Jazeera reports. “We are united and determined to end the current unjust which dominates the world and replace it with a new world order based on justice,” the Iranian president said. The men called their union a “strategic alliance.”

“We believe that the only result of bullying movements of imperialism all around the world, and especially in Latin America, will be the fast decline of imperial power,” Ahmadinejad noted, while Venezuela's president blasted "military attack threats against Iran by some countries. We know that they can never thwart the Islamic Revolution."
