WikiLeaks finally releases some useful information
One of the latest bits of information released by WikiLeaks says that the head of Iran‘s Revolutionary Guard has slapped President Mamoud Ahmadinejad in the face. This is reported to have happened during a security council meeting where the two were in a heated argument.
The alleged firey meeting occurred after street protests were violently put down in December, 2009. Ahmadinejad said people needed to be given greater freedoms. Jafari said that Ahmadinejad was the source of the problems in Iran. And then he slapped the President. Both sides have denied the incident took place. (Fox News)
Slapping doesn’t get the respect it deserves nowadays. There used to be a time when a good slap stood for something–it could lead to a duel for example. It is high time that we restore the caché that once made the slap in the face a strong and manly gesture.
