WE'D ALL BETTER HOPE HE'S MORE SUBSTANTIAL THAN THE UR...:

Is He Iran’s Obama? (Tariq Alhomayed, 4/08/09, asharq alawasat)

They have finally seen it for themselves, for here we have Iranian presidential candidate Mir Hossein Moussavi pledging to change the image of his country from an extremist state to a moderate state if he is elected president of Iran.

In his first press conference since declaring his candidacy for the Iranian elections, which are scheduled to take place on June 12, Moussavi acknowledged that “Extremism has cost us a great deal; we have to work hard to build international confidence.” He added, “Our foreign policy is extreme. In some cases, we have been on the brink of extremism and found that we had to turn back.”

This is coming from an Iranian politician; not an Arab, Westerner, Wahhabi or Sunni but an Iranian.


...after all, it isn't their foreign policy that needs to be reformed--it's just empty bluster--but their economy.
