Yes, although I can appreciate your reasoning. For an fundamentalist Islamist the ideal State is one following Islamic Law controlled by Mullahs. I think Iran would learn a lot from say a country like Turkey. That country is a secular democracy based on Islamic traditions with a modern looking approach to its neighbours. (Unlike the presiding Iranian Prime Minister that wants to annihilate one of its neighbours.) Morrocco and Egypt live in peace with their neighbours and they are just as Islamic as Iran. I think Khameni needs to prove why he should see himself as better than these countries leaders.

they truly believe it was hijacked. i figured that the "supreme leader" (i had this nick name when i was a kid building forts out of pillows) would have allowed the recount, but no. its all a sham.

Unfortunately Khamenei and Ahmedinejad desperately want an external threat and are prepared to plant bombs against their own mosques in order to create a fiction that this strife is caused by external enemies.
It is heartbreaking to watch but the outside world just provides the Khamenei regime with justification for it's murders by intervening.
