« Iran Gets Referral To UNSC | Main | Just Your Average Political Party »
Europe may not have the opportunity to impose economic sanctions and isolation on Iran -- because its president has decided to inflict it on his own country instead. Mahmoud Ahmedinjad has decreed the cancellation of all economic contracts in nations where the Prophet cartoons have been published:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ordered the cancellation of economic contracts with countries where the media have carried cartoons of the prophet, the ISNA news agency reported.
The report said the hardline president had ordered the creation of an official body to respond to the cartoons, saying the regime "must revise and cancel economic contracts with the countries that started this repulsive act and those that followed them." ...
The list, which already included Denmark, where the 12 caricatures first appeared last year, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and Spain, expanded Saturday to take in New Zealand and Poland.
The mullahcracy should be proud of their accomplishments since they arranged the election of the former mayor of Teheran to the presidency. In a few short months, the Iranians have all but declared war on Israel and the US, forced a showdown over their nuclear plans, and now face almost complete isolation from their former European economic partners.
One hopes that Iranians will see the coming collapse of their standard of living, as well as the foolishness of generating so many enemies all at once, and act to remove the mullahs and their mouthpiece from power.Sphere It View blog reactions
