Ahmadinejad Remains Unclenched

Alas, for all of President Obama's happy talk, on Friday-

"Whoever ends up winning the election in Iran, the fact there has been a robust debate hopefully will advance our ability to engage them in new ways"

The Mullahs' newly "reelected" pit bull, Ahmadinejad, remains as feisty as ever and comes out swinging:

Ahmadinejad Makes New Threats, Plans Victory Rally Amid Protests

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says his re-election was "real and free" and cannot be questioned. He also indicated there would be no change in the country's nuclear policy during his second term, saying any country attacking Iran would deeply regret it, Reuters reported.

Ahmadinejad made the comments Sunday during a press conference — his first since the government announced that he was re-elected to a second term in a landslide victory during Friday's vote.

"Who dares to attack Iran? Who even dares to think about it?" Reuters quoted Ahmadinejad at the press conference.

Ahmadinejad also accused foreign media of launching a "psychological war against" against the country.

It would appear that the "robust debate" thing didn't work out as hoped. The "whoever" that won the "election" apparently wasn't the "whoever" the administration envisioned.

So, what's "Plan B"?
