    Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani died at age 82

    Greeting Friends,
    Former speaker of the House, Director of 8 years war affair, 2 terms president, long term chief of the Council of Experts smd Expediency Council Rafsanjani died at age 82.

    All major online media outlet have comprehensive report on his passing if you might p look for detail, but I personally like the one on BBC showing a picture of he Supreme Leader standing behind the casket praying with his urban tiled one way and seriously sad face probably thinking about "Damn I know I'm next"

    Interesting that he died more or less in the same type of location where Amir Kabir died.
    The latter was assasinated in a spa while the he (Rafsanjani) died in the pool or while going to the pool.

    Both were power brokers I believe.

    Heard about this a while back. It was a shock to hear. Bruce Bueno de mesquita had him tagged to be the next Ayatollah. I wonder who it will be now.
