Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday morning that unnamed western countries are causing droughts in some areas of the world, including Iran.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the Kamal-e Saleh dam in Shazand, in Iran’s Central Province, Ahmadinejad said some European countries using “special equipment” have prevented rain clouds from reaching certain eastern areas including the Persian Islamic state. 
 
Ahmadinejad claimed that a western politician had written an essay predicting that certain areas including Turkey, Iran and other parts of Asia would be hit by a water crisis in the next three decades. 
 
According to official Iranian news agency IRNA, Ahmadinejad said the countries area which the essay refers to cover countries which “scare the West most” because of their “capacity for initiating civilizations and influential cultures.” 
 
“The legal experts in our country will follow up on this issue,” Ahmadinejad vowed. He “stressed” that “such a dark actions should not repeated again,” IRNA reported.  
 
The next war will be a “water war,” he predicted.
 
The Iranian leader was also quoted this week as saying that the United States had held Osama Bin Laden for some time and made him sick before killing him.
