Ahmadinejad's Election Tumult

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's antics aren't too popular in Iran, either. In the first presidential debate in Iran, Ahmadinejad faced harsh criticism from one of his opponents, who accused him of "downgrading" the country in the eyes of the world. The opponent, former Prime Minister Mir Hossein Mousavi, said several times that Ahmadinejad was a demagogue who had created countless problems for Iran. Ahmadinejad countered by making personal accusations against his opponent, as well as the expected rant about the Holocaust being a "big deception." The BBC news reports that Iranians will no doubt be shocked by the fiery debate, though it is unclear who emerged the victor.
