Tehran, Iran (AP) - Iran's president is warning that the wave of protests sweeping the Middle East will spread to Europe and North America.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says popular demands for change will put an end to the oppression of what he called "arrogant powers." Without signaling out nations by name, he says similar uprisings will strike Europe and North America.

Speaking on state TV Wednesday, the president also condemned Libya's use of force against demonstrators and urged Libyan leaders to give in to the demands of their people.

Iran's hard-line leaders have sought to claim some credit for the uprisings in Arab nations, saying the 1979 Islamic Revolution provided inspiration.

Iran brutally put down protests on its own streets after Ahmadinejad's disputed re-election in 2009.

    Not surprisingly -- after two attempts to overthrow the radical, anti-American, anti-West, anti-Jewish, Islamist regime in Iran -- Obama has remained quietly on the sidelines regarding any support for the opposition -- unlike Obama's open call for pro-US Mubarak to step down in Egypt.

    All part of the New World Order. We had someone on the BBC yesterday saying a Global Government is needed. The current "rulers" will form the cabinet. Don't forget, Presidents/ Prime Ministers didn't get where they are by "being nice", they got their positions through lies and deceipt and the "people" believed them.
