Ahmadinejad said on Monday he is ready to fly into orbit. Said the Iranian president to the state-sponsored IRNA news agency: ““I’m ready to be the first Iranian to sacrifice myself for our country’s scientists.”
“Sending living things to space is the result of Iranian efforts and the dedication of thousands of Iranian professional scientists,” he said, adding that “we should admit that some [powers] do not tolerate Iranian greatness and growth. Iranians have incited the devils’ hatred [because of] Iranian idealism, perfectionism, and being human.”
Sure. Bon voyage!
