Hmmm .. Let's see ....
1979, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his cohorts-in-arms seize the US embassy in Teheran, taking hostages.
1981, Republican homeboy Reagan campaigns on the issue of American hostages and wins the election. Minutes after he is sworn in, the hostages are released.
2002, Republican asshat George "President" Bush delivers Axis of Evil speech which includes Iran, later inviting any nations interested in jihadist endeavours to "Bring it on" in order to boost his dropping sperm count.
2004, An indignant Bush insists he really meant "Bring It On" just as a metaphor and now would nations please stop bringing it on?
2005, Same abovementioned Bush gives Iranian voters the finger, who, having been taunted by the big infidel dog one time too many, vote in the same Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as Iranian president out of spite.
Mahmoudsan (just cos Ahmadinejadsan sounds too contrived) also happens to be an extremely hardline pro-nuclear nutjob. Kinda like a mid-eastern version of our great leader this side of the Atlantic, except I'm sure he has a lot less brush to clear on his ranch. Seems like everything's come back a full circle and America and the world and everyone and their uncle are safer.
