Iran has a new President, reformist cleric Hasan Rowhani. He replaces outgoing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who couldn’t run again due to term limits. Rowhani promised to make peace with the world and get the UN sanctions lifted from his country that he said Ahmadinejad caused. His winning campaign slogan was “Who Wants Bread?”

Damn I was for sure Ahamadinejad's members only jackets were finally making a comeback around the world
I was in Iran earlier this year. Guessing this 'moderate' won't change a lot for women. On arrival, all the women on my flight had to stop before passport control to put on a horse blanket. 'Moderate'.
Shame on whoever published this!! there was no such thing as “Who Wants Bread?” Stop publishing lies. I lived over 16years in Iran, and I promise you it is not as bad as media tries to show it to us. Although this country is facing economic sanctions but its not like Africa that people die from hunger.
Hardliner, reformer, it makes ZERO difference in Iran. Each candidate has to be personally approved by the clerical leadership including the Ayatollah so the new boss is exactly the same as the old boss.
What do the USA and Iran have in common?
When a new President is elected, its still the same old fucking bullshit
@Shaggyballz74 They just grow them for NHL playoffs, All Iranians are inot hockey
@yashar_o Did you wake up today and say "I think I'll reinforce some Arab stereotypes on a website I've never heard of before"?
@yashar_o It was Iran's own new President who campaigned on the fact that Ahmadinejad caused the sanctions that have food prices and inflation to be at record highs. This is one of the things he promised, to work with the rest of the world so Iranians could have and afford basic needs.
@yashar_o Do they have a lot of butter?
@ADomeApart The Republicans were ready to send the troops in every time the last guy said anything provocative. And Romney was already sold on a war with Iran. So, even though he's not the top guy, having someone in there who does a little less tough talking will be nice.
@K Dubya Why worry about a backwards nation with a quarter of our population that's half a world away? I worry about Canada. What if they stop sending us beer, comedians and maple syrup? It'll be like living in Norway or some other fucked up country.
@mascan42 @yashar_o Blame the new President of Iran., those are his thoughts about hunger and access to food in that country. Inflation is insane there. Goods can't be brought in. His campaign was run on the fact that he wants to get the country out of economic turmoil. Maybe this guy is the answer to Iran's problems. That's if the supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei lets him have any real power. Or is that just throwing out another stereotype, that the Guardian Council, has the real power in the country?
