Better dust off that dinner jacket, because he'll definitely have way more time to go to dinners after this.

He'll have more time to look at the pictures of the American hostages he guarded back in the 80s.

He'll have time to refine his 'death to Israel' chants.

Godd riddance. Let's remember that we have the Bush administration to thank for putting the hardliners back in power at a time when reformers were poised to make further moves toward a better relationship with the U.S. I wonder what Romney will say about Iran's poli-- oh, nevermind.

Even if he ever left politics I wonder if the devil we know is better or worse than the devil we don't. That region has a pretty endless supply of people who hate us and while Dinnerjacket hasn't set a very high standard for sanity I bet there's plenty of contenders to the throne that would be under that bar anyway.

Plus there's always Khamenei and I assume he's the most important decision maker over there anyway.

If he even thought of trying that, Khamenei would have him put down with a quickness. There's really only room for one dictator per country.

Precisely. It's scary how many Americans don't get that Ahmedinejad is downright moderate, almost liberal, compared to the guys the ayatollah would rather have in his place.

No no, you don't have to be high to be a sociopathic liar.

It's like noticing that Obama was a better choice than McCain: that makes you a libby libby lib who hates America. Noticing that Ahmedinejad was better than most of the alternatives? Libby libby lib!

But, you can't acknowledge that sometimes you have to go with the best available option in the real world, and still be a teatard.

That's an interesting analysis, in that it's 100 percent wrong. Khameini is a hardliner in terms of keeping power in conservative clerical hands, but Ahmadinejad was the top guy among those pursuing conflict with the West. The midget mayor wanted permanent revolution, with his embassy-occupying buddies in charge, not the static, corrupt theocracy that the clerics want.
 
2012-06-18 06:51:17 AM  
Oh... they have "elections" coming up? Well, they'd better make sure they have plenty of ammunition, tear gas and prison space. You know... to be sure the will of the people is being followed.

Jonathan Hohensee: I'm interested in what his conflicts with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei was over.


Pretty much this. Khamenei is displeased with Ahmadinejad because he is too confrontational with the west or not confrontational enough. The Iranian economy is in the crapper and it's there because Ahmadinejad's hard line with the west. I wonder if this could signal a beginning in an easing of tensions.

Surely you jest, Amaha, amahdin, amajadinajah .... Oh whatever. He was the best they had to offer and did so much for stability in the M.E. and the Iranian economy. Sorry to see him go, NOT. Good riddance to the little rodent faced turd blosoom.

Keep in mind he's only the 14th most powerful person in Iranian government, grand ayatollah Khameni is at the top, then there's the 12 member guardian council and then the president. Oh and the president doesn't control the military. Or really much of anything. So all Ahmedinejad's talk, is just that. And responding to it as if it carried any real wait, by say, mentioning military action, is not really worth it and makes whoever does it look bad.
 
2012-06-18 08:23:19 AM  
Oh for fark's-sake what a terrible article. We might not like it for whatever reason (I guess because having them kick us out over the Shah was embarrassing?) but Iran is a functional democracy where power has been exchanged peaceably ever since the ruthless, torturing dictator that we put on top of them was removed. Comparing a successful populist president to Putin? Seriously? Putin has reporters with broken necks thrown out of Fifth storey windows. Putin has bloggers abducted from the airport and dumped in front of hospitals with a bullet in their head. Putin has the Russian mob poison and cut the breaklines of critics and opponents that flee the country, or get elected in neighboring, actual democracies. You can say many honest, unflattering things about the Iranian regime, but that its president is a murderous, unrestricted tyrant certainly isn't one of them.

Ahmadinejad may be a controversial figure -mostly because of how dedicated our media seems to be towards misquoting him and taking his statements out of context, as Juan Cole has so powerfully argued- but he is still, without a doubt, a democratically elected leader, the executive of a power-balancing, parliamentary government, and emphatically not a Putinesque dictator. He isn't leaving because of some "power struggle" with Khomeini; he's leaving because his goddamn term is up, the same way any honestly democratic leader does.

Honestly, if Pravda or some Iranian newspaper came out with a story of how Shrub left the White House in 2008 due to him losing a power-struggle with Chief Justice Roberts, and darkly alluding to his possible return despite the law in four years, you'd all be on here mocking it and chuckling about how moronic the premise was. But, because this story involves a country you've been Pavloved into hating, you all are actually -shamefully- willing to take such ridiculous, evidence-free, conspiracy-bullshiat seriously. It'd be laughable if the fact that so many citizens of the world's biggest owner of nuclear weapons swallow lazy propaganda without the slightest critical thought wasn't also really farking frightening.

This exactly, some people don't seem to grasp exactly how high the bar can be set for crazy. He may be a little extreme seeming to us but they don't realize how extreme people can be. I don't like him but I'm POSITIVE i will like his replacement alot less if hand picked by the clerics.
