Iran can wait for nuclear victory

By Aussigirl

So Ahmadinejad's crazy and talks to someone who lives in a well. What matters is he's spelling out very clearly just what he intends to do, and we will be very foolish not to take him at his word. Remember Hitler was considered a clown and buffoon, but look at the hell he visited upon our world.

Last Monday, just before he announced that Iran had gatecrashed "the nuclear club," President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad disappeared for several hours. He was having a khalvat (tete-a-tete) with the Hidden Imam, the 12th and last of the imams of Shiism who went into "grand occultation" in 941.
According to Shia lore, the Imam is a messianic figure who, although in hiding, remains the true Sovereign of the World. In every generation, the Imam chooses 36 men, (and, for obvious reasons, no women) naming them the owtad or "nails," whose presence, hammered into mankind's existence, prevents the universe from "falling off."

In Ahmadinejad's analysis, the rising Islamic "superpower" has decisive advantages over the infidel. Islam has four times as many young men of fighting age as the West, with its aging populations. Hundreds of millions of Muslim ghazis (holy raiders) are keen to become martyrs while the infidel youths, loving life and fearing death, hate to fight.

Islam also has four-fifths of the world's oil reserves, and so controls the lifeblood of the infidel. More importantly, the United States, the only infidel power still capable of fighting, is hated by most other nations.

According to this analysis, spelled out in commentaries by Ahmadinejad's strategic guru, Hassan Abassi, known as the "Dr Kissinger of Islam," US President George W Bush is an aberration, an exception to a rule under which all American presidents since Truman, when faced with serious setbacks abroad, have "run away." Iran's current strategy, therefore, is to wait Bush out.

And that, by "divine coincidence," corresponds to the time Iran needs to develop its nuclear arsenal, thus matching the only advantage that the infidel enjoys. [....]

The Iranian plan is simple: playing the diplomatic game for another two years until Bush becomes a "lame- duck," unable to take military action against the mullahs, while continuing to develop nuclear weapons.
