Yesterday, my wife and I met with a Jewish doctor whom we have known for about 6 months. His father is a surgeon who has remained in Iran even though the rest of the family had fled Iran several years ago. As usual, I asked him what is going on in Iran with the recent unrest. He told me that the precipitous drop in value of the Iranian currency was not because of the sanctions, but was primarily the ruinous economic policies of the Ahmadinejad regime. He also told me that a great amount of government money is missing and Ahmadinejad is suspected of sequestering it out of the country and that is why some members of his regime are being persecuted.
He also told me that the ruling Ayatollahs want remove Ahmadinejad before his term is up...and that they also intend to dissolve the parliament!
He also suggested that Turkey's modern culture reminds him of what it was like in Iran before the 1979 revolution...interesting assessment!
In other words, it’s going to become even more radically Islamic, without even the pretense of a secular government?
Governor Tarkin: The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away forever.
General Tagge: But that’s impossible! How will the Emperor maintain control without the bureaucracy?
Governor Tarkin: The regional governors now have direct control over their territories. Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this battle station.
my guess is they don’t want to take a chance that the Israels are going to bomb them and they could get killed, too
Since there is currently a hyperinflationary crash, someone must be blamed that way others can save their own skin.
The Mullahs have decided to blame Ajmadinnerjacket.
Which might have the benefit of being true. Either way, it works.
I think this is all about self preservation at this point.
Yeah he's considered too liberal by the Ayatollahs. One of these days they will have their own version of the French Revolution in Iran.
It's plausible to me, because I have had a number of Middle Easterners tell me that Muslims prefer to appear to be good Muslims publicly rather then actually be good Muslims. It's a culture and society where hypocrisy is at its very foundation of daily life.
This rumor has been flying around for at least a few years, since before Ahmedeadman’s “reelection” campaign. I don’t feel sorry for that piece of stool, but he does have a difficult job, taking all the blame for everything (including Iran’s poor economy and gov’t corruption real or imagined) in order to keep the mullahcracy spotless.
IOW, they won’t get rid of him unless it looks like he’s finally ready to get rid of them.
