Mousavi upbraids Ahmadinejad over security sanctions
The Washington Times / Benjamin Birnbaum

Iranian opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi took aim at President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Wednesday for not leveling with Iranians about the effects of U.N. Security Council sanctions that were passed last month.

"To say that this resolution is like a 'used hankie' will not ease the hardships arising from demagogic policies, as it is clear to me that this resolution will affect our nation's security and economy," Mr. Mousavi said.

He called the sanctions resolution "oppressive," saying it "will decrease GDP, increase unemployment, create more hardships for people and widen the gap between us and other developing nations, especially our neighbors."
