Iran suspended from World Soccer

There are some people in this world to whom the rules don’t apply.  Just ask them, and they’ll tell you.  The FIFA has barred the Iranian team from competition in World Soccer matches because of government interference in Iran.

A fellow named Mohammed Dadgan had been the elected head of the country’s soccer federation.  Apparently he isn’t anymore, and the FIFA wants to know why.  Federation rules prohibit any government from tampering with FIFA procedure, since it is an international body, and the suspension will remain in effect until Dadgan is reinstated.

Whatever Dadgan did or said, someone in Iran didn’t like it, and decided to give him the boot.  In other, most likely more important matters, whatever the United Nations does or says, will probably get the same reaction.
