Great News: Iran and Egypt Form Closer Ties

Remember, it was vitally important that US ally Hosni Mubarak be driven from power with absolutely no plan for what would happen afterward. Our boy genius super-macho he-man Osama slayer President told us so, and so it was.

All the better to resist the “Zionist enemy,” I guess.

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi spoke with his Egyptian counterpart Nabil al-Araby on Monday evening for the first time since the uprising in Egypt.


[Salehi] praised Egypt for its role in the reconciliation of Fatah and Hamas. “Palestinian unity is the key factor in empowering the resistance against the Zionist enemy,” he said.


The Iranian foreign minister also addressed the riots in Syria for the first time during the press conference, saying that “as long as the popular movement persists,” Tehran will continue to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government’s response to the “popular demands.”

What’s next, super macho he-man Osama slayer?
