Via Drudge: Iran’s Ahmadinejad Survives Blast Near Motorcade


The Iranian Green Revolution is heating up.

More from the UK Guardian.

The Iranian website said a homemade grenade exploded near Ahmadinejad’s presidential motorcade in Hamedan, western Iran, as he was on his way to address a crowd. Reuters said a source in the president’s office had confirmed the attack but other news outlets reported that presidential sources had later denied any attack had taken place. Khabar, the website, said he was unhurt and went on to give his speech as planned, which was broadcast live on state television.

      Heh! Cheers.
      If I recall correctly, elements of the Guard are peeling away. The present regime may be on borrowed time. The thing is – Iran has a sorry history of regime change with disastrous product. Permaphoughqued.

    Good thing that shot is from the belly up – peeing yourself is unpresidential.
