Iran - The Nuclear Storm Continues to Gather VI

The Hudson Institute's Hillel Fradkin has a great article in the Weekly Standard about the Tyrant of Tehran's real intentions. It should send chills down the spines of everyone. There is a cold certainty about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, that clearly reveals his intentions in what he does. The Tyrant's letter to President Bush is both an invitation to discard liberal democracy and embrace Islam as well as a declaration of war. Of course, liberals and MSM think the letter is an opening to dialogue.

A part of Hillel Fradkin's article is worth noting when it comes to understanding the Tyrant-

It is true that Ahmadinejad presently occupies a subordinate office, a deficiency reinforced by the fact that he is not a jurist, let alone an ayatollah, and thus lacks the credentials for supreme rule as defined by the principle of the regime--"the rule of the jurisprudent."

But he may be in the process of addressing that difficulty by enlisting a source of authority--the Hidden Imam--consistent with and even superior to that principle. Ahmadinejad has presented himself as the herald or "prophet" of the Hidden Imam--the ultimate, if absent, ruler and authority for so-called Twelver Shiism--and has gone so far as to claim that he had a vision of the Imam, at the U.N. of all places. (emphasis mine)
Ahmadinejad sees this struggle in religious terms and will not be satisfied until he accomplishes his goals. He has declared war. It's the late 1930's all over again. "Peace in our time!" History repeats itself. War is coming.
