Just finished reading the Iran-related article that Miguel had posted. Recommended. The very sad thing about Ahmadinejad is that his opponents in the 2005 elections predicted many of the things that now the international media (both the networks and the independents) are saying about him. But well, his second election was as clean as Bush’s second. The voters actually selected him over the slightly-to-the-right-of-center Rafsanjani.
