This all sounds reasonable , right up to the point when you realize that the people in Iran who are running things are not rational in the same way we are. They can think in a linear manner but their frame of reference being what it is they will reach conclusions that we would quite simply consider insane.

Religious fanatics are capable of anything. If these nutjobs really believe the poor bastard they send out as a suicide bomber is going to Paradise, then WHY NOT hurry things along for the rest of the faithful?

What could be better than getting right with God?

Mr Ahmed, you sound rational. The people running Iran are flat out crazy.
