Ahmadinejad throwing a tantrum again
With the world being worried about Haitian earthquake relief and actually working to together to provide such, Iran's nut-in-chief has felt neglected. Add to that the fact that opposition in Iran to his failed regime continues to grow, and well Mahmoud Ahmadinejad just isn't feeling the love.
Don't fear, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will not be ignored and knocked off the front pages. Ahmadinejad is threatening to humiliate the world powers on February 11th, the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. February 11th is also the day Iranian opposition plan to have protests in Iran.
While the world takes the nut-in-chief seriously, Ahmadinejad huffs and puffs out of desperation in holding his regime together within. Blustering with the United States and Israel is the only way he can continue to hold power.
Ahmadinejad's blustering is from a position of weakness, not strength. That makes the nut-in-chief dangerous. Ahmadinejad is a throwback to the days when fear and terror ruled humanity. He and terrorists like him have a completely different view of the world than the West does. While Western ideals speak of tolerance and debate, Ahmadinejad and his type paper over their weakness with threats and sneaky violence. They appear to not have the strength within to have mercy or much reason.
Pandering to Ahmadinejad's tantrums will only make things worse. Evetually, the world faces a choice. Do we allow someone to bully the more tolerant and reasonable or do we draw the line, and say no more from this throwback from history's darker days?
