I found it very ironic that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad left Iran after the bloody events on Monday for an international conference at Yekaterinburg in Russia. It reminded me of another dictator's convenient departure in similar circumstances:That of Nicolai Causcescu for Iran back in 1989 (where he had deposed flowers on Khomeiny's tomb) before returning home to be toppled and executed. What would Ahmadinejad's visit to Yekaterinburg augure for his future ? Will Medvedev Russia's New Republican Tzar take our dear Mahmoud to visit the crypt in which the last Russian Tsar and his family were buried after their execution ? Now wouldn't THAT be ironic ? Will we see the advent of a Revolution in the day's, months, to come ?
Only God/Allah/Jehova/Farvahar Knows ... Or is it Lenin ? ;0)
Yekaterinburg Background: Soon after the Russian Revolution, on July 17, 1918, Tsar Nicholas II, his wife, Alexandra, and their children Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, and Tsarevich Alexei were executed by Bolsheviks at the Ipatiev House in this city. More on the town here
