Whoa, gird your loins; it may be time to take cover! On the occasion of Iranian Psychotic Nutjob President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s inauguration, the Obama administration has decided to play hardball with the mullahs, soft power-style:
In an address after the ceremony, he criticised foreign powers who have cast doubt on the validity of the election, saying Iran would resist them.
Opposition supporters protesting outside parliament were met by hundreds of riot police.
Germany, France, Britain and the US all said they would not be sending letters of congratulation to Mr Ahmadinejad.
LINKS: A letter-writer to The Weekly Standard is even rougher on Ahmadinejad:
“I hear we’re also refusing to supply sparkling water and cookies at the bilateral talks when they happen. Only tap water. One must show strength before the enemy.”
It’s the Cold War all over again, man.
