“Shiites believe that Imam Mahdi, the 12th imam in a direct bloodline from the Prophet Muhammad, is alive but has remained invisible since the late ninth century, and that he will reappear only when corruption and injustice reach their zenith.”
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with the support of the Mullahs has done much to hone this message to buttress support against the “great satan” in what they see as the coming conflagration between its hoped for leadership role the global war between Islam and the infidels.
Here’s to the hope that the zenith of “corruption and injustice” is rightly seen by the Iranian people as being advanced by the leadership in their own country and not against those of us in the West, who like Rodney King just want us all to get along.
“Rarely has his message been as blunt. Denouncing support for terrorism, arming of Iraqi militias and attempts to place the
Middle East“under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust”, President Bush accused of threatening the security of nations everywhere. Iran , he insisted, would “confront this danger before it is too late”. Within hours of his tough message, US forces in America had arrested eight Iranians, searched their luggage and confiscated their Iraqi escort’s weapons before releasing them. American commanders are taking no chances. They know that Iraq is smuggling men and weapons into Iran in huge quantities, arming not only Shia militias but also rival Sunni groups with the express aim of harassing and killing coalition troops.” Iraq
Yeah, that's right, Iran actually has something to do with all of this
