Ahmadinejad just exhibits traits typical of any authoritarian leader. When things work, take the credit and when it does not work then blame “the West”.
However, the fact that we ridicule Ahmadinejad for his silliness is irrelevant because he’s preaching to an indoctrinated community who lap up his
every word as fact.
Ahmadinejad and his ilk can pop an angry mob out of the bag at a whim. The flags the mob burns on the day are provided, alongside the lighter fuel
and the every present press.
