Iranian Regime Assails Obama Despite His Weenie Roast Invite …Update: Only 1of 3 Parliamentarians Show Up at Mahmoud's Party
Unfortunately, siding with the regime during this election crisis and inviting them to 4th of July celebrations did not help Barack Obama.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad attacked Barack Obama today for interfering with Iranian affairs.
FOX News reported:
Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on President Obama on Thursday not to interfere in Iranian affairs after the U.S. president said he was “appalled and outraged” by post-election violence, a news agency reported.
“Mr. Obama made a mistake to say those things … our question is why he fell into this trap and said things that previously (former U.S. President George W.) Bush used to say,” the semi-official Fars News Agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
“Do you want to speak (with Iran) with this tone? If that is your stance then what is left to talk about,” said Ahmadinejad. “I hope you avoid interfering in Iran’s affairs and express your regret in a way that the Iranian nation is informed of it.”
Meanwhile, the Basij cowards continue to shoot at the democracy protesters:
Once again— The Iran massacres prove the UN is impotent.
UPDATE: Only one-third of Iranian Parliamentarians showed up to Mahmoud’s victory bash.
The BBC reported:
Separately, nearly two thirds of MPs appear to have stayed away from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s poll victory party.
All 290 MPs were invited to attend the party, Iran’s press reports, but only 105 turned up. An earlier BBC report wrongly reported that 105 did not attend.
One of those who reportedly failed to turn up was Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, a high-profile figure who shares some of Mr Ahmadinejad’s hardline views but has been critical of some aspects of the government’s handling of the protests.
