Ahmadinejad: Let the Population Grow

Kamangir reports about Iranian President's speech about the population growth. President Ahmadinejad said they say two children are enough [a famous slogan for controlling Iran’s population growth in the last decade]. I oppose this…if our population increases we will defeat them [Westerners]. The blogger adds it reminds me of what the Islamic Republic advocated for during the war with Iraq. Then, they encouraged people, through financial aids and propaganda, to enlarge their families. At that time, they needed soldiers.
