I'm not entirely sure that Ahmadinejad is not just ful of bluster. At any rate, he's becoming increasingly unpopular in Iran not just among young students but with members of Iran's Parliament. I doubt he wins another term in office. A more moderate leader will take power (not too moderate or pro-west, the ayatollahs and mullahs will see to that.)
