Ahmadinejad row with Khamenei intensifies
Source: AJE

A political dispute between Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president, and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the country's supreme leader is reported to have intensified.

Ahmadinejad is said to be contemplating resigning after Heidar Moslehi, the intelligence minister he had sacked, was reinstated by Khamenei.

The president is understood to have shirked some of his duties and skipped cabinet meetings for the past ten days in anger over the decision.

Mehrdad Khonsari, an analyst with the Centre for Arab and Iranian Studies in London, told Al Jazeera on Friday that the dispute, which began last month, had become "serious".

3. LOL!
The puppet starting to object to the arm up his ass?

Perhaps he should remind Khamenei that Allah himself elected him, Khamenei himself declared that after the "election".

4. I'm guessing Iran's constitution could use a little work...

I looked at a very quick outline on Wikipedia, there's one provision that basically says the Supreme Leader can do what the hell ever he wants.

(Give 'em credit though, it's right there in the constitution that all citizens are guaranteed healthcare.)
