Impeachment proceedings finally begin! In Iran
January 10, 2007 by William K. Wolfrum
As President Bush prepares a “surge” which will likely not stop until it gets to Iran, it is interesting to see that even “evil regimes” like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s in Iran have their critics.
From ADN Kronos:
Iranian reformist lawmakers have started collecting signatures in Parliament to demand the impeachment of the country’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. So far, 38 signatures have been collected out of the 72 required to formally summon Ahmadinejad and request his impeachment. Noureddin Pirmouzen, a deputy with the reformist minority, says it is nonetheless “positive to question” the head of the executive branch.
“Many actions of the current government and of president Ahmadinejad have led the country to an extremely worrying political and economic situation,” Pirmouzen told the Iranian news website Aftab.
Issa Saharkhiz, editor and political analyst, told Adnkronos International (AKI) that “Ahmadinejad’s golden era is over.”
“I don’t think Ahmadinejad will leave the presidency before his mandate expires but I am also convinced he will not succeed in winning a second term,” added Saharkhiz. “Many factions and personalities who supported Ahmadinejad’s candidature at the 2005 presidential elections have already abandoned him and don’t spare criticism, even harsh and direct, of the president and his government.”
Sounds like they have a bunch of surrender monkeys in Iran these days. This hasn’t gotten much play yet from the big media conglomerates, but hopefully it will. Shouldn’t true believers of the great “battle of civilizations” be wondering why the Islamonazibaddieracists can’t pull together to enslave the West? Or at least wonder why “opposition” in the U.S. is such a great way to empower the enemy, but when the enemy battles from within, it’s unworthy of much mention?
