The guardian is reporting that the Iran MP has summoned our friend Ahmadinejad to appear and explain a few things !!


MPs summon president to answer questions about the economy and his judgment, weeks before scheduled elections


Well it's apparently election time in Iran too.

It seems the Parliament is inquiring about the economy and his personal judgments.

Iran's economy might be getting snuffed by Western sanctions.

His "personal judgments" may be a bit more difficult to explain however


Unless of course, anyone believes that maybe TPTB have offered Him a lucrative retirement package !!

Maybe he decides to retire instead of running for re-election this time.

Mahmoud has one month to appear ...... or else (gulp).


guardian.co.uk, Tuesday 7 February 2012 14.58 EST

The Iranian parliament has summoned the president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to answer a series of questions over the government's handling of the economy and his personal judgments.

The move is unprecedented in the history of the Islamic republic.

After a year of internal debate and unsuccessful attempts to question or impeach the president, MPs secured enough signatures for an attempt to summon Ahmadinejad. They succeeded in persuading the parliament's presiding board to read the motion during Tuesday's open session.

The move comes at a time of discontent at home owing to western economic sanctions and growing international isolation over Iran's nuclear programme. In recent weeks, fears of a major confrontation between Iran and the west have grown.



Please Raise Your Right Hand and Repeat after Me


I think he will retire with dignity !


this Could Set the Stage for an Internal coup d'état


Las Vegas odds for the over/under are 90 days !

Yeah Sorry dude, I think you'll find Ahmadinejad is doing what the mad mullahs want..
Sure he can speak as he pleases but ultimately.. the war drums are the Mullahs playing.

Still I wonder why hes being ordered to front up?

If its public and recorded i think its a stage..I think that they are trying to convince the US Iran is weak and split.
If it is not shown public and its all hush hush behind close doors.. they may tell him to prepare for war!

It wouldn't make any difference.


The President of Iran, who is elected by universal suffrage, is the Executive President (Head of government). In 1989, the Prime Minister of Iran's office was merged with the President's office to form the current post of President of Iran. However, certain executive powers, such as command of the armed forces and declaration of war and peace, remain in the hands of the Supreme Leader. Furthermore the Supreme Leader can even dismiss the president and prevent the legitimation of any law (appointed by assembly) by the institutions under his control, the Guardian Council and the Expediency Council.


Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is the Supreme Leader.

Really. So all the calls to close Persian gulf, to not allow US ships, all the military exercises in the gulf, all the missile launches, all the anti-Israeli speeches were made by Israel and US i guess.
There is a chance of unilateral wardrums hearing loss.

Sure would be nice if congress man up and called Obama to explain his BS...

Same thing with Bush...

Since it's not happening, they obviously work together.

True. And it was true when president of Iran was Mohammad Khātamī. Iran was anti-Israeli then too, but it was much less aggressive.
So to say that president does not influence the policy is wrong. And i do not expect Iran to change its stance about Israel any time soon. I just want to return to previous levels of hostility - it would be enough for me.

I was thinking that this could be a way of stalling for more time on their ( Iran's) side. A possible tactic from Iran to halt any military action from Israel just yet. Who knows, Just a fleeting thought. I wouldn't be surprised.

i think he'll just have the Mullahs disappear rather than show up in court, as we've already seen this guy doesn't play well with others.

I understand the issue with Irans economy right now, sanctions are kinda tough like that...but what personal decisions are they wanting to inquire about?
I haven't been paying attention to his personal life, I only have time to keep up with the Kardashians :-)
