Mir Hossein Mousavi, Irans opposition leader has accused the government of the Iranian President Ahmadinejad of suspending government projects believing in the superstition of the arrival of the last Shiite Imam Mohammedi Mehdi, reported by several local and regional Media outlets last week.
Some government officials have predicted the coming of Mahdi soon. Therefore, the government has halted working on several important projects, said Mousavi.
Mousavi, leader of Iran's so-called Green Movement, lost last years highly disputed presidential elections to Ahmadinejad. Since then, he as well as many others have not recognized Ahmadinejad as president believing that election results where changed by a massive fraud conducted by pro-Ahmadinejad circle including Irans supreme Leader Khamenei, who had supported Ahmadinejad.
"Some people believe Mahdi will come in the next six months or next year. That is why the government has stopped working on several industrial, as well as water and energy projects," Mousavi ridiculed. "They paralyze the economy on the pretext of Mahdi's coming".
Mousavi said that superstitious beliefs were growing within the ruling elite. Clearly alluding to Ahmadinejad, Mousavi said there are some people who use the philosophy of Mahdi's coming for political purposes.
Mousavi said that his supporters had increased into the military circles including high ranking officials of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), who suppressed last year's pro-opposition demonstrations. He said that Mahdi Jafferi, general commander of the IRGC, had warned his officers to stop supporting for Mousavi, preferring the current policy of Iran to the use of violence and exiling.
According the reports, Brigadier Jafferi did not comment on the size of the opposition and reformists in the IRGC. Apparently for similar reasons, Iran's supreme leader Khamenei has recently retired 250 high ranking officials in the IRGC. Among the retired commanders there are commanders who had participated in the Iran-Iraq war which lasted 8 years.
Send in the psychiatrist.
Is that the dude that's supposed to pop up out of a toilet or something?
Iran's Central Bank has not stated the country's official economic growth rate for the past two years.
“The bank knows that Iran's economic growth rate was around 0.5 percent in 2008,” said Khavand. “But it has been under government pressure not to publish it as it is in contradiction with [President] Mahmud Ahmadinejad’s words in this regard.”
Europe better figure out soon they are much closer to this soon to be nuclear madness than we are.
That’s the guy that should go in to a toilet pooh that he is.
Tehran, Aug. 07 - Prices for basic necessities have increased dramatically in Tehran, including for public transportation and food.
The employees, who were hired in 2007, 2008 and 2009, sent the petition to the then-provincial secretary, reminding him that they still have not received some of their wages and sick leave payments.
Considering the current rate of inflation and after 36 months on the job, is it not time to receive our salaries and bonuses? they asked.
Wages of janitors and office administrators have also been completely ignored during these years. In 2007, overtime payments have not been made even for people who worked as many as 14 hours a day. At the same time, they have not received housing subsidies.
M.A.D doesn’t work when the opponent is literally mad.
We'll just have to use the "D" portion of it then.
Sounds like socialist central planning to me. Just like Obama.

Appeasement does not work, and has never worked all throughout history.
On May 28, 2010, President Obama informed the world that the 'war on terror' was over.
'Our long-term security will not come from our ability to instill fear in other peoples but through our capacity to speak to their hopes,' the President explained. Terms like new partnerships, multilateral diplomacy, and tough engagement surfaced in the document, all leading to Obama's point that 'to succeed, we must face the world as it is.'
BARF! Sounds like Clinton and Albright, all over again.
Nuclear weapons have, till now, guaranteed the survival of Israel. That deterrent effect depends on the rationality of the attacker. Iran gets a bomb and delivery mechanism and this effect may go out the window. They are the kids who never played well with others. They have no ideological problem with an apocalypse like what the Judeo-Christian faith has.

That’s not the Mahdi coming out of the well, it’s an ICBM shadow growing larger! Oh, Shiite.
