The president has come under fire at home lately for disobeying the orders of the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khameini. The power struggle between he and his partner-in-despotism has been fierce and balls-to-the-walls nuts, with his detractors claiming that he is either using sorcery to achieve his political aims or, depending on who you ask, the victim of sorcery himself.
Wizard? Or just an asshole? You decide.
All-in-all, I'm thoroughly entertained.
Anyway, Mahmoud baffled both detractors and supporters when he made the speech accusing the West of undermining Iran by stealing rain. The Middle Eastern country has suffered several droughts in recent years, with no end in sight. Who better to blame it on than his bitterest critics?
"'Western countries have designed plans to cause drought in certain areas of the world, including Iran,' Mr Ahmadinejad said in the city of Arak in Markazi province.
"'According to reports on climate, whose accuracy has been verified, European countries are using special equipment to force clouds to dump' their water on their continent, he said.
By doing so, 'they prevent rain clouds from reaching regional countries, including Iran,' Mr Ahmadinejad charged."
Riiiiiiiiiiight. Your country's drought problems have nothing to do with the fact that it's in the Middle fucking East.
My conclusion? He's joking! He's OneAngryQueer's Comedian of the Week.
Cuz he has to be kidding...
