Iranian MPs Call for Ahmadinejad Impeachment!

I cannot really say that I expected this, but it appears that at least some in the Iranian Majlis,  or Parliament, are calling for the ouster of "President" Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

So what's the call stemming from? Corruption, blackmail, murder? Of course not. It mainly is stemming from charges that Ahmadinejad is not radical enough-- that he had the gall to apparently disagree with the country's ruling Mullah, Ali Khamenei.

Ahmadinejad has not been seen of late and now there is word of impeachment proceedings.

Since the first signs of split emerged, several members of the Iranian parliament have called on Ahmadinejad to publicly support Khamenei's decision over Moslehi, a request he has so far declined. Some prominent figures in the powerful revolutionary guards have also asked the president to comply with the supreme leader.

On Tuesday, Parliament News, a website run by Iranian MPs reported that "the plan to impeach Ahmadinejad has begun" in the parliament, with 12 MPs asking for him to be summoned before them.

Conservatives believe that the increasing tension between Ahmadinejad and Khamenei stems from the growing influence of Mashaei, who is being groomed by Ahmadinejad as his possible successor.

This could be big.
