So people are going to look at my articles over the last few days and think they sound angry. Fair-enough, they are angry. I am young, living in a country where drinking a beer can get me arrested and dealing with the stress of a family wedding. So anger is just a part of what I am at this point.
Who am I angry at? That's a simple enough question. There's lots of people to be angry with. Prime among them is the new President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad.Why am I angry with Ahmedinejad? Because he's a retard. He took the single most powerful and respected country in the Mid-east and instead of keeping his head down and making sure it ran well, he decided to be gung-ho just to prove to the world that he's got cahuna's. So my problem with Ahemdinejad is actually the problem he has with himself; he's a little guy who's constantly trying to prove that his cahuna's are bigger than everyone else. Which means he probably has none.
Now we're at a turning point in the Iranian revolution. After 30 years of established clerical rule, the revolution is now moving to a new stage, where the structure of government and it's all pervasive attitudes will be questioned, where the Iranian peoples' commitment to a regime over an ideal will be tested. Already they are passing that test with their out-pourings in the name of...justice. That Ahmedinejad would have won anyway is largely beyond doubt; he is very popular with the rural and urban poorer classes, most pollsters had him ahead and he is strongly supported by the military and revolutionary guards. That he chose to win using every means possible, including slander and eventually vote-rigging, betrays his innate lack of respect for the very revolution he is sworn to protect.
The Iranian revolution is now at a transformative stage and small factors are adding their bit to the brew bubbling under the surface. What Obama, or the EU says matters at this point; what people here say matters - it all adds up. The outcome cannot be determined, but with a little luck it should move the way of openness, modesty and peace, before war and repression. That is where Ahmedinejad apparently wants to take it; that's why he sucks at life.
