That ain't good! Mr Ahmadinejad won 62% of votes, defying predictions of a close race, to defeat the more moderate ex-President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. After his win, Mr Ahmadinejad said he planned to create a "modern, advanced and Islamic" role model for the world. His victory means all the organs of the Iranian state are now in the hands of conservative hardliners. [...] Mr Ahmadinejad has also pledged to tackle corruption and resist Western "decadence". Tackle corruption right? Isn't voter fraud, I don't know, corruption? Reformist candidates accused Iran's Revolutionary Guards and Basij security services of orchestrating a plot to boost Mr Ahmadinejad. Interior ministry officials monitoring polling stations received some 300 complaints of electoral violations in Tehran alone, the Associated Press news agency reports. The Guardian counil ruled by Khameini, naturally, denies that any kind of electoral violation happend. The Iranian bloggers are not very happy about the result of the election and most of them consider Ahmeddinjad's win a disgrace. I love how one Iranian blogger put the result of the election though:"Ahmadinejad wins big. True to form, one of our more prominent writers characterises this seminal event so memorably as the victory of ignorance over injustice!" The new Prez vows to take more of a hardline with european negotiaters over his nuclear policy, because according to him Iranians have been too frightend in their talks before. The man is partially right, because let's face it, there is almost no reason for anyone to be afraid of the europeans. This will be good for the europeans though, it should re-teach them a thing or two on appeasement and where it gets you. It won't be good for the rest of us, especially with the possibility of Israel bombing Iran's nuclear facilities the same way they did Iraq's in the 1980's, which might prompt the Iranians to respond! I have been looking forward to a good nuclear holocaust for a while now and i might just be getting my wish. Sweet!
