A welcome change from the speeches of our weaselly politicians. Indeed we do need 'A global, democratic participatory system for managimg global affairs' in order to address the injustice done to 'all countries that have been directly or indirectly harmed as a result of the transgression of a few bullying and hegemonic countries.' Khameni is careful to point out that the ordinary citizens of America and Europe do not support what is done in their name. All in all, he seems like a reasonable man. ( Pity about the 'wholesome' adjective applied to nuclear power, big mistake - but even the Guardian's George Monbiot thinks so too now)
