    Iranian leaders say the world financial crisis indicates the end of capitalism, the failure of liberal democracy and divine punishment -- marking the superiority of the Islamic republic's political model.

    "The school of Marxism has collapsed and the sound of the West's cracking liberal democracy is now being heard," supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Monday, recalling the fate of the Soviet Union.

    Hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is backed by Khamenei, said on Tuesday that "it is the end of capitalism."

    Several Iranian newspapers, regardless of their reformist or conservative leanings, have also blamed the global economic crisis on excessive liberalism.

    And some officials, such as the head of Iran's electoral watchdog body, have come up with less conventional theories and branded the turmoil as "divine punishment."

    Now, can someone remind me just who these leaders of Iran are supporting for the Presidency? Oh, that's right, the Obaahmessiah.

    I can't argue with that....but "the end of capitalism"? I don't think so.

    I think the crisis is due to the mixing in of socialism. DUH
    Woe to those who call evil good
    and good evil,
    who put darkness for light
    and light for darkness,
    who put bitter for sweet
    and sweet for bitter.

    Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    and clever in their own sight.

    Iran is cordially invited to shove a Shahab missile up their ass.

    Sideways.

    DU and the insane President of Iran hope for the same thing. I am not shocked.

    If we don't clean house in Washington, it will be. Not the cause, per say, but an excuse.
