No I mean hit this idea of a new world order is a way for him to put Iran's case on its nuclear weapons program -- support for the Asad regime.
In Syrian support for terrorism around the world in a context.
That a great majority of the members of the UN can relate to and you know few months ago Iran was named president of the so called nonaligned movement a 120 out of a 190.
Plus UN members and that's the audience he was -- You know if you look at.
-- President Obama is you know.
Time in New York I mean he's been criticized for doing talk shows but at the same time do you think that -- it is not kind of stole the thunder as he always does -- mean we're talking about it.
He's got a sound -- playing all over the newscaster -- across the nation where you know the attention this got this this is his -- It's on it's his last this speech is president of Iran because they'll be elections next year.
And you know in in many respects having an outspoken Iran in leader like Ahmadinejad.
Helps keep the nuclear program front and center for people.
His the criticism he faces and Iran is that he should keep his mouth shut not stop the nuclear program but proceed and don't don't draw so much attention.
He called for a new world order and is United Nations speech of one I want a -- that's really -- we're gonna do -- -- -- -- -- want to -- -- Hungarian action.
