Iranians still not happy with Ahmadinejad

I know, I know. That's a bloody understatement, but it does show that the Iranian youth don't like him at all. As a matter of fact, and not to put too fine a point on it, they'd like him to, well, drop dead:

Many Iranian youths rallied in streets across the country, shouting "Death to Ahmadinejad," in celebrations marking the end of the Persian calendar year.

The last Wednesday of the Persian calendar is celebrated as the Fire Festival in Iran, with bonfires and firecrackers marking the occasion.In the western city of Ahvaz, angry mobs declared "Freedom is our legitimate right" while demonstrators in the western city of Sanandaj shouted "Death to (Iranian President Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad," Ynetnews reported Wednesday.

The police in Tehran were out in force and, though they were met with a barrage of firecrackers, the situation didn't escalate beyond what is typical for the Fire Festival, local reports cited in the news report said.Ahmed Raza-Radan, the police chief in Tehran, warned demonstrators against violating the rule of law in a news conference.

"The police force has resolved to detain any party-goers who break the law. The secret police will have full control, and will not hesitate to photograph citizens for evidence," he said.

Sure, they'll snap the pictures now, and then they'll crack skulls and snap necks. We have an ally in the youth in Iran. If only there was a way we could help them overthrow the mullahs, and help them fulfill their wishes of sending Ahmadinejad on a one-way ticket to Allah. Someday, maybe.
