In an amazing display of “the pot calling the kettle black” Iran’s dictator figurehead Mahmoud has condemned the use of overwhelming force in Libya.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has condemned the killings of protesters in Libya, calling the government’s actions there “unimaginable.” Ahmadinejad said Wednesday that Arab leaders must listen to their people, and he questioned how leaders could use “machine guns, tanks and bombs” against their citizens.
Like the use of anti-aircraft weaponry against unarmed protesters, getting the government of Iran to call you out represents new and un-precedented lows for Gaddafi.
Now we need to start thinking of what the end game will look like for Gaddafi and his cronies. It is hard to see what country would be willing to take him in now that he has been thoroughly discredited. You never know, but even when Iran’s dictator who has no qualms about calling for the execution of opposition leaders says that your actions are “unimaginable” it is hard to see where you are going to find a happy home.
I briefly thought about putting a “humor” tag on this post but I can’t bring myself to do it.
