Iran: The fundamentalist minority

Hossein Derakhshan feels very sorry about what the Iran's president has recently said. “But I have to say he doesn't represent the way the majority in Iran think“, he adds.

    Ahmadinejad is a disgrace and can only be working against Iran and even the Islamic Republic and not for it. He has broken his election promises and should be shot like that rat Ceausescu in Romania. Ahmadinejad seems to want to hasten the end of the Islamic Republic, invite US war and then make a deal with the US saying he was “only following orders” all along. Ahmadinejad’s little game to oust the IRI will kill millions, though. He should not be allowed get away with it. I’m sure there is another way of bringing regime change to Iran than Ahmadinejad’s lateral thinking of gaining it via war.

    Ahmadinejad is a disgrace and has broken his election promises by improving the economy. He deserves to be shot by the Iranian people like that rat Ceausescu was by the Romanian people in 1989. Ahmadinejad is not working for Iran or even the Islamic Republic, in fact he is working against it.

    Ahmadinejad wants to hasten the end of the Islamic Republic by deliberately inviting war with America. He then hopes to make a deal with the US and say he was only following orders from Khamenei and is the elected leader of Iran not like the Supreme Leader is. However, Ahmadinejad’s lateral thinking strategy to overthrow the Islamic Republic will bring untold hardship to the Iranian people and I doubt if the post-war Ahmadinejad government will be any more in control than the current Iraqi government against the sure fact of insurgency. Surely, Ahmadinejad, there’s another way to free your country. Try the Khatami approach, it nearly worked.
