The Iranian rial today slipped to 8420 to the US dollar. Not that you (most of my readers) are affected by it... I can't explain it, whether it has something to do with oil/OPEC or central planning or maybe someone read payvand... if I listen I'll hear cries of "7 tomans to the dollar before revolution".

President Khatami demanded...


In the tradition of a recent free thoughts on Iran article... (apologizes is usually spelt with "z" on net)

number of google results for "iran apologizes": 2
number of google results for "iran apologized": 2
number of google results for "iran demands": 520
number of google results for "iran demanded": 227

You can compare this to any other country - check the ratio. IRI foreign policy is conducted in a terrible fashion. No-one can take a petulant child seriously.
