US President George W Bush has criticised the presidential election taking place in Iran on Friday as ignoring the demands of democracy.Ka-Blam! Implosions all over the place. This would be funny were it not so tragic.
"Iran is ruled by men who suppress liberty at home and spread terror across the world," he said in a statement released by the White House.
"Power is in the hands of an unelected few who have retained power through an electoral process that ignores the basic requirements of democracy," he said.
