Flip-flop of the Faqih. I have never been selected as a "spiritual guide" for anything (I once was asked to serve as a spiritual guide for the local IKEA store but I turned it down), although I once played the role of spiritual guide on the soap opera the Bald and the Beautiful, but I don't know much about the qualifications of the Iranian spiritual guide, who is supposed to the most grand of all Ayatullahs (and Ayatullahs are "grand" and dandy by defintion). But how can the Iranian Ayatullah switch his position from opposing the American occupation of Iraq, to supporting to that occupation, and back and forth?
