Democracy + Autocracy = Autocracy

It apparently wasn't enough for the Iranian Guardian Council to certify the fastest recount in history, declaring Ahmadinejad the winner in the June 12th election. The deputy head of the council has declared to the FARS news agency that Mir Hussein Moussavi's career in presidential politics is over:

"If people like me remain in the Guardians Council and if Mousavi is a candidate in the next election, we will not approve him."

Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, who earlier suggested that leaders of protests should be executed, referred to Mousavi, who was premier in the 1980s and once a close aide to the late revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, as being "anti-revolutionary and against the regime."

Council spokesman Abbasali Kadkhodai advised reporters that the opposition

"cannot object or protest in any other way. The Guardians Council is the final authority on the election and we announced our decision unanimously."

The full report can be seen here, but it's beyond clear that this criminal regime is committed to use any means necessary to hang on to its power.
