Iran's unelected supreme religeous guide Ayatollah Khamenei gives a lesson in Democracy .

"In free elections the majority of the Iraqi people will choose those who will not allow the Americans to stay one more day in Iraq, "

Now I can see why Khamenei is eager to talk about future Iraqi elections not past Iranian elections since, in each of the last 3 national elections, about 70 % of Iranians have made it very clear that they want change and that means change from rule by Khamenei.

But oh the shame for a citizen of the worlds oldest established (large scale) democracy to feel the need to trade barbs with a theocrat.

The comment

''The Americans are so desperate that they are bombing an occupied country..." really stings.

I found about the sermon from Juan Cole
