Mideast to expel US with kick in butt: Ahmadinejad

Ahmadinejad said Middle East nations will expel the US from the region with a "kick in the butt.

Tehran: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday that Middle East nations will expel the United States from the region with a "kick in the butt," as he launched a vitriolic tirade against Iran`s arch-foes.

"They have such nerve to threaten us and say all options are on the table. May the undertaker take you, your tables... away as you have dragged the world in mud," the hardliner was quoted as saying.

"If you don`t leave the region, you should know that soon the nations of the region will expel you with a kick in the butt," he said in some of his harshest anti-US comments in
recent times.
The United States and Israel accuse Iran of seeking nuclear weapons and have never ruled out a military strike to curb Tehran`s atomic programme, which Iran insists has only
peaceful aims.

The Iranian leader went on to cast fresh doubts on the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the United States. "We have hundreds of unanswered questions about the September 11 incident to which they should respond, and we will not back down on this," Ahmadinejad said in a speech marking the start of a housing project outside Tehran.
