Nothing will be left to chance - even the hint of a green protest wave. In 2009, 475 candidates registered to run for Iran's presidency. Only four were approved by the Guardian Council - the all-powerful, vetting clerical committee. This year, no fewer than 686 registered for the upcoming June 14 elections. Eight were approved....

Former United States president Bill Clinton now says President Barack Obama is "getting his groove back". The same would apply to Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad. No stranger to New York's charms, the pious Mahdist - who believes the occult 12th imam will be back soon to deliver us all from evil - will be addressing... Read More
Let's face it: Hillary Clinton is one hell of a dominatrix. At first the United States Secretary of State said the Brazil-Turkey mediation to get Iran to accept a nuclear fuel swap was destined to fail. Then the US State Department said it was the "last chance" for an agreement without sanctions. And finally, less... Read More
President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva from Brazil and President Mahmud Ahmadinejad from Iran. What is this - the new axis of evil? No - Luladinejad is a new axis of business. As Ahmadinejad was coming from a visit to the Brazilian parliament in Brasilia on Monday, Lula was waiting for him, virtually alone. The... Read More
It is 1979 in Tehran all over again. From Saturday to Sunday, the deafening sound deep in the night across Tehran's rooftops was a roaring, ubiquitous "Allah-u Akbar" (God is great). Then, in 1979, to hail the Islamic revolution; now, in 2009, to signify what appears to be the hijacking of the Islamic revolution. Then,... Read More
From the moment cool, calm, collected Iranian presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi went all rhetorical guns blazing against President Mahmud Ahmadinejad in a debate on national TV, not only Iran but the West seem to have woken up and joined the fun. As Mousavi put it: "He [Ahmadinejad] says, 'why do you call me a... Read More
The administration of United States President Barack Obama, the State Department and Dennis Ross, their "special advisor" to the Gulf and Southwest Asia, the Pentagon, the industrial-military complex, assorted Likudniks and their enablers, the next Bibi-bombs-Iran government in Israel, everybody is taking note. With the official announcement this week that former president Mohammad Khatami, who... Read More
NEW YORK - It is unimaginable not to get the message of Iran on Wednesday test-firing nine long-and-medium range missiles - including the Shahab-3, with a range of 2,000 kilometers - in the ultra-sensitive Hormuz Strait. Make no mistake, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) is more than ready, with Allah's blessing, to go ballistic.... Read More
They just can't keep from going at each other's throats. Just in time for President George W Bush's special guest appearance at the 60th anniversary of the founding of Israel, his ultimate nemesis, Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, unleashed another rhetorical shot across the bow as his own way of "celebrating" the anniversary. And once again... Read More
Five Ways to Think about Iran under the Gun
It's like old times in the Persian Gulf. As of this week, a second aircraft carrier battle task force is being sent in -- not long after Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Adm. Michael Mullen highlighted planning for "potential military courses of action" against Iran; just as the Bush administration's catechism of charges against the... Read More
It's no secret that a great deal of the alleged success of the George W Bush administration's "surge" - or at least the way it's being spun in the US - is related to a diminished flow of Iranian-made weapons towards militias in Iraq. The weapons anyway were being sold by Iranian and or Gulf... Read More
BS reporter: But the American people, sir, believe that your country [Iran] is a terrorist nation, exporting terrorism in the world. You must have known that visiting the World Trade Center site would infuriate many Americans. President Mahmud Ahmadinejad: Well, I'm amazed. How can you speak for the whole of the American nation? You are... Read More
It's all over the Iranian press: President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, self-described "street cleaner of the people", is in deep political trouble at home, subjected to crossfire from conservatives and reformers alike. All the more ironic considering the biblical tsunami of Washington spin portraying Ahmadinejad as the newest "new Hitler" (Saddam Hussein, after all, fell victim to... Read More
RIO DE JANEIRO - Not Christianity, Judaism or Islam. Not Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism or assorted animisms. The world's biggest monotheistic religion is football. It doesn't matter the color of your skin, where you come from, your political ideology, your educational background, even your primary religion; football belongs to Everyman. North Americans, Australians and South Africans... Read More
"Tehran appears hell-bent on defying the international community and pursuing a nuclear program that is of growing concern." - Sean McCormack, US State Department spokesman. This followed a rare press conference with the international media in Tehran on Monday in which Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad suggested that Tehran might withdraw from the United Nations nuclear...

It's a real threat." -... Read More
TEHRAN - Imagine the photo opportunity: US President George W Bush and Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad meeting face-to-face in New York. But it won't happen. Blame the public relations machine in Washington and the Islamic guidance handlers in Tehran. Yet it would be so much easier if the two leaders would talk. Ahmadinejad, just weeks... Read More
