Fars (Iran): "President Ahmadinejad Deplores Suppression of Protesters in Britain"

If only Britain were a democracy like Iran:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad strongly criticized London for its brutal suppression of protesters, specially in recent days, and called on the British authorities to correct their attitude towards people's demands.

"I advise them (British authorities) to correct their brutal behavior since such a brutal attitude is totally unacceptable," President Ahmadinejad told reporters at the end of a cabinet meeting here in Tehran on Wednesday.

Britain's politicians should give the people the freedom and chance to participate in their society's affairs, the Iranian president went on saying, and added that Britain should deal with the problems of its own people instead of launching military attacks on other states like Afghanistan and Libya.

He also asked all European leaders to listen to their people's demands, and stated, "I'm concerned about a social outburst in the West and I am concerned that the outburst happens so badly that no one can control it." [...]
Such touching concern. The article goes on for several more paragraphs, making all the looting and criminality sound like protests.
