Ahmadinejad is a madman with a nuke and MAD (mutually assured destruction) does not apply. These people are ready to die for their faith, yes I said faith. This is not about a peaceful nuclear program in the hopes to supply the oil rich nation with electricity. No, this is about ushering in the 12th imam of islamic prophesy. Shortly after his election, Ahmadinejad spoke of his strong belief in the second coming of muslims' "hidden" 12th Imam. According to shiite muslim teaching, Abul-Qassem Mohammad, the 12th leader whom shiites consider descended from the prophet mohammed, disappeared in 941 but will return at the end of time to lead an era of islamic justice. Chaos will usher in the arrival of this eschatology figure, the redeemer of islam who will change the world into a perfect islamic society.

This is the mind of the man with a nuke!
