Ahmadinejad Ready to be First Iranian in Space

Why do tyrants and dictators like to make ridiculous claims? Saddam Hussein once claimed that during a fair and free election in Iraq he received 100% of the vote, not a single vote was cast against him. Vladimir Putin once claimed to have wrestled a bear and later said that while scuba diving he discovered and ancient shipwreck and recovered priceless artifacts from it. Now Ahmadinejad says he is ready to be the first Iranian to be sent into space.

Iran’s new space program recently claimed to have successfully sent a monkey into space and brought it back to earth in good health. Funny, but when I read that I thought Ahmadinejad had already been in orbit….
His claim may not be too far off. They might be considering sending him. His term as President ends in June and he can’t run again. This would certainly get him out of the way. And besides, think of the money they could save. He could use the same space suit and capsule the monkey used. They are about the same size after all…

Live Long and Prosper....
