Initially I had the same belief as this article that Ahmedinejad may have gotten the vote and have won fairly. Then I did my research and called Iran. When my family who is very religous did not vote for Ahmedinejad, and told me they do not know of anyone else who did, I became very suspecious of the election outcome. I have a feeling that the regime became very troubled by the election of Bibi Nateniaho (spelling) in Israel and decided they need a tough talking president to stand up to Bibi instead of a soft spoken Mousavi.
