Iranian UN Ambassador fails to deny reports of the supreme leader's dying

UPI reported that Iran's ambassador to the United Nations says there is no truth to reports his nation's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Hoseini-Khamenei, has died, but it is important to note that he did not deny he is dying. A few excerpts: DoctorZin: The death of the Supreme Leader of Iran will lead to a major struggle for power inside of Iran. The Islamic Republic is increasingly vulnerable from within. Now is the time to support the pro-democracy forces inside of Iran, before it is too late.
