Iran's Real Problem -- The Economy
30-Jul-2009 (2 comments)

Political infighting in Iran heated up yesterday when some of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s conservative supporters warned him that he might not get a second term in office if he doesn’t start towing the line. The warnings came off the back of a tiff over the last couple of weeks between Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and Ahmadinejad, in which the former warned the president to get rid of his right hand man, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaie, who was perceived as being a bit too friendly towards Israel. The president ultimately bagged his number two, but only after taking his own sweet time – a slight to Khamenei.
