Ahmadinejad's letter to Bush landing with thud at home?

It appears that President Mahmoud Ahamdinejad's mystical letter to George Bush has not created ripples of enthusiasm through the Islamic Republic of Iran:

Just four days after Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sent a letter to the US, his advisors are so disappointed in the American response which did not respond as well as they thought it would, that fear a wave of criticism will rise about his gesture from inside the country. According to political analysts, after Ahmadinejad suffered a defeat in attempting to allow women to attend sporting events in public stadium, his team banked that the letter to US president George Bush would create a breakthrough and enthusiasm among the youth of the country.

Bush had no choice but to react with silence to the letter. Perhaps the chilly response of the Iranian people is a sign that many want the Twelfth Imam to remain in the well.

Right-on Floyd. I called Rush Limbaugh about this letter and compared it to the film Mars Attacks, because the press and the naive seem to think this is some sort of outstretched handshake of peace. He's actually inviting Bush to repent and join him under the banner of the Imam Mahdi.

You're right... there are many in Iran who don't care to see someone like Mahmoud begin the final conflagration, ushering in the reign of the hidden Imam.
