Official Ahmadinejad Photo Retracted

Sepah News, the media arm of the Iranian national Guards, released a picture earlier today of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinjad. Later, however, the picture was retracted without further comment. Specialists believe the image to be doctored with Photoshop. Fortunately, Edge of Europe has saved a copy for you.

    Dutch papers today show another interesting feat of Iranian Photoshopping. In one picture, believed to be the original, on of four missiles refuses (?) to fire. Inj the doctored picture all four fire simultanuously, but the doctoring was very sloppily done, as one can see that the clouds on the ground of both missiles are exactly the same shape. To be sure: are the Presidents of the Islamic Republic of Iran really identical twins?

    The story about the rocket pictures is hidden behind the link in “retracted”, Sante. This is my reaction to it…

    Ah, but it was a werry good speech.

    Oh well. Let’s face it: what I said may be superfluous, but well phrased, don’t you think? And phrasing well, that’s what it will be all about, the next few years. The Dutch language has already partly disappeared in sms and internet. The English for now is still holding out. Three cheers for English!

    It’s all in the delivery, Sante, that’s certainly true. You have missed a great career in politics…

  6. Sante Brun says:

    The thought has occasionally passed my mind, specially the part that’s in the past tense.

    I think it’s pretty hilarious that Obama thinks he can talk Ahmadinejad down. It really shows some ignorance of there culture. I just read a really good article,Should The President of the United States Talk to Ahmadinejad? , that does a pretty good job explaining why this probably wouldn’t have great results.

  8. RvK/LC says:

    Whose culture do you mean when you say ‘there’ (you mean ‘their’)? I think it is a great idea to talk. It is not said that Obama would want commitments of Ahmadinejad – they are not worth a lot, and not because he is a Muslim but because he is a politician. I think we do need to at least try to understand where the other side comes from, what their ideas are, what their reasoning is.
