No jacket required

Iran has announced the sudden cancellation of the massive entourage tour by Imadinnerjacket President M. Ahmadinejad and about a 100 associates to Brazil, Venezuela and Ecuador that was scheduled to start tomorrow.

No explanation of the cancellation was made.
Roberto Jaguaribe, a political undersecretary at Brazil’s foreign ministry, told reporters in Brasilia it will be rescheduled for a date after Iran’s June 12 elections.
That may be, but between the protests in the streets of Brazil's cities...
A few thousand rallied over the weekend in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, carrying banners that read “President Lula: explain to your guest what freedom of expression means.”
and the claims of Argentina for extradition of five wanted Iranians indicted for the 1994 terror bombing of the AMIA building in Buenos Aires, Iran is not as popular down south of the equator as it seems to be in Chavezistan.

But Roberto Jaguaribe, has got to be the coolest name in all of South America.
