Ahmadinejad Assassination Thwarted

I go away for an afternoon and someone tries to whack my favorite Muslim leader. From Iran Focus via

Follow-up discussion on RedState.

The current debate is whether the attempted assassination was carried out by internal government operators trying to get rid of the oft firing loose cannon, or whether the attempt was made by pro-western revolutionaries. I'm with the latter camp. Ahmadinejad is a dangerous nut. However, he is being handled by a group of Islamist Jihadi nuttists every bit as bad as he is. I think if they wanted him gone they would simply wipe him off the face of the planet leaving no trace.

We in the west aren't the only people that this maniac narcissist scares. There has been a building body of discontent in Iran for years as those inside the country see democracy budding elsewhere in the region. I'm thinking that someone, seeing these other changes taking place elsewhere, listening to Ahmadinejad's rhetoric, and fearing the mullah's hands on a nuclear weapon, may have just ran out of patience.

If only they had been a little more accurate.
