So that's what he meant! We don't set the preconditions, Ahmadinejad does! Okay, I see.
Iran wants a formal apology from President Obama (or perhaps even Secretary Clinton will do) for the last sixty years of "bad acts and the crimes they committed against Iran.”
I'm sure that by now this is not news to you, but I would just like to point out some things here:
The psychology behind this is like a kid testing a particularly placating adult; the kind that abhors physical punishment or confrontation because those things will indubitably lead to "emotional damage" later in life.
Ahmadinejad is seeing what he can get away with. He wants the Grand Prize of the Great Satan bowing to him and the entire Terrorist Consortium.
Obama had better not be considering it. Like giving an energy drink to the 7-year-old just because he wants it, this is a bad idea on so many levels...
Aside from the damage it would do to our security, credibility, and standing the whole world over, it would kill him here at home. Everyone from the far Right to the moderate Left would issue an official "WTF" complaint. That would be nice and all, but not at that price.
Also, one of the Ayatollahs may be shopping for a new president. His (Ayatollah Khazali's) son is posting funny stuff about Ahmadinejad being a Jew on the internet. I know, I know, "not that old trick", but their family did change their name from the Armenian-sounding 'Saborjian' to the well-known current incarnation that means "Race of Mohammed".
Hmmm...kind of like tattooing "NOT JEWISH" on your forehead.
Regardless of this allegation's truth, apparently the post is not being denounced by the other Ayatollahs (I welcome corrections here...).
Maybe the theocracy of Iran is tired of all the attention (or the variety of such) their puppet is bringing them?
