Insect We Trust

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressed the Iranian people last night on television in another attempt to settle the unrest that has shaken Iran since the disputed election last month. It didn't go very well.

Ramin Mostaghim of the LA Times, reporting from Iran, wrote

During and after his speech, Iranians in various neighborhoods climbed to their rooftops and stepped out into their rooftops to chant “God is great,” and “Death to the dictator” in what has become a nightly protest against Ahmadinejad and in support of former Prime Minister Mir-Hossein Mousavi, his chief rival. Mousavi posted a statement Tuesday on his website calling on the government to free prisoners swept up in a crackdown on those disputing the official vote results.

But what made Ahmadinejad's speech more than the typical ranting bluster we have come to expect, was an aerial attack that even he couldn't blame on the US, Britain, or Israel.

Joke spreading: The bug that bugged Ahmadinejad has now been arrested and soon to confess on state TV

That type of humor is one sign to me of why Iran will be free some day. Even with all of the ugliness in the past month, the past 30, or 100 years, the Iranian people are still able to see the funny side of things.

Bloggers quote Hadith from 6th Shiite Imam that "God created bugs to intimidate the arrogant"

All we know for sure is that Ahmadinejad is no Barack Obama.
