This column by Amir Taheri cracked me up today. Remember the big Putin trip to Iran? Now spend 2 seconds imagining the conversations between Putin….and Ahmadinejad.
“This was the first time that Putin was talking to senior Islamic Republic leaders in a substantive and focused way,” says a senior Russian official familiar with what happened. “The president found his Iranian interlocutor weird, to say the least. The Iranians mouthed a lot of eschatological nonsense and came close to urging Putin to convert to Islam. It was clear they lived in a world of their own.”
“It was clear they lived in a world of their own”.
Yes….sadly the rest of us breath in it.
