Ahmadi-Nejad has won a landslide reelection in Iran. Before everybody goes off the deep end, you have to remember his position as President is largely without power. He presents Iran's face to the world much like the Queen of England. The Prime Minister runs things and policy is set by the Supreme Leader who heads the Religious Council. Despite cries of election fraud, his victory has such a large margin that you can assume it to be legitimate. Even the Supreme Leader was surprised by the vote calling the election a "a startling and unique event".
Why would the people of Iran elect a guy that they openly mock as a buffoon? The reason is simple: they are getting tired of the Western corporations screwing with their economy. Iran was using its oil money to become a major banking power in non-dollar transactions. Under the guise of fighting terrorism the Bush Crime Family had put major restrictions on Iran's ability to do business with US and European banks. This has also dragged down their industrial base which has led to shortages and unemployment. Did you know Iran builds one million cars a year?
If Obama wants to get along with Iran all he has to do is take off these illegal embargoes. Will the mega-corporations let him do that? Certainly not, but if Obama does it anyway, then you'll know he is really in charge and not Dick Cheney.
