Election of Ahmadinejad Custom-Made for Neocons by Kurt Nimmo

For the Straussian neocons, the election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran is Christmas in June. It firms up their argument that the country is trapped in a mullah-instigated vapor-lock and in order for “democracy” (i.e., neocons and neolib carpet-baggers allowed to make the country Israel-friendly and turn off the oil burglar alarms) to prevail, invasion (or shock and awe) is the only choice, since we all know Iran’s mullahs are obsessive-compulsive on the idea of stocking nukes. However, as William O. Beeman points out, attacking Iran, as the attack against Iraq, will be no cakewalk. “Ahmadinejad’s persona and his message are clearly irresistible to people who see the original ideals of the revolution slipping away through the increasingly Westernized behavior and sensibilities of the salons and boutiques of North Tehran,” writes Beeman.
