Iran President Now Purging Political Rivals (Signs of Coming Times?)

(Guardian) Iran is facing political paralysis as its newly elected president purges government institutions, bringing accusations that he is undertaking a coup d'├ętat.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's clearout of his opponents began last month but is more sweeping than previously understood and has reached almost every branch of government, the Guardian has learned. Dozens of deputy ministers have been sacked this month in several government departments, as well the heads of the state insurance and privatisation organisations. Last week, seven state bank presidents were dismissed in what an Iranian source described as "a coup d'├ętat".

An informed Iranian source with first-hand knowledge of all the main political and clerical figures in the country said: "Ahmadinejad is defying everybody. He does whatever he wants and considers it to be right. This is not how things are done in Iran."

Lets see, political math says:

(Strict Fundamentalist Elected) + (Extreme Violent Speaches Against Israel) + (Secretive and Defiant Nuclear Production) + (Elimination of Domestic Political Rivals) + (Support From Large World Powers China and Russia) = VERY DANGEROUS!
