How Long

Reader comment on item: The Mystical Menace of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Submitted by James Biga (United States), Jan 10, 2006 at 10:55

How many threats must one receive before you respond? How serious must these threats be?

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad believes he is doing allah's work. He looks at America as the great satan and seems to be intentionally provoking a violent response. Western politicians continually reference the fact that the are "running out of patience with Iran". Well, how long does it take before the patience is drained. Iran, like Iraq, has played these games for years. The UN has once again proven its ineptitude in resolving this issue. Too many talking heads. Too many people making backroom deals.

I sometimes feel that it is time to put a wall around the whole country and let the rest of the world destroy itself. With the Middle East problems, genocide in Africa, Socialist/Communists in Central America, Islamist's infiltrating everywhere, Russia reverting back to it's previous oppression. This doesn't paint a pretty picture for my children's future. I understand we can't go to war everywhere. My question is, why doesn't anyone else have the staunch convictions to confront these people. Why does the rest of the world wait for America to do something? Damned if we do, damned if we don't.

My prediction: Iran will continue to defy the "international Community" and develop their nuclear weapons. They will then hold the rest of the world hostage to their demands. They will not refrain from making an example to show the world their willingness to use these weapons. The mahdi will not comeback, but it won't matter. An excuse will be given that will satisfy all the radical nutjobs. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be considered a Great Iranian Hero for confronting the Great Satan. Meanwhile we'll be left wondering when the next bomb will go off. At some point this man needs a "punch in the face." Sooner better than later.
