The lesser of two evils?

Reader comment on item: Rooting for Ahmadinejad

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Jun 12, 2009 at 18:58

According to Iranian press, Ahmedinejad wins the presidency yet again. According to Steve Hayes it doesn't matter who wins because "the mullahs are in charge" -- it is a known fact that the president in Iran has little power. Charles Krauthammer believes that "the nuclear issue will not change" whether Ahmedinejad or Mousavi becomes the president.

I happen to agree with these opinions, including Dr. Pipes---I too believe that it is better to deal with a lion who roars than a sweet-talking liar whose lips drip with honey---at least we know where we stand with Ahmedinejad.
