It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Ahmadinejad

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Cheney and the neocons are crazy to want to go to war with Iran, whatever Iran's intent, but Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is crazy, too. Or, at least, he says the craziest (and most dangerous) things, even if they are more for domestic consumption than anything else.

Consider, for example, what he said yesterday about Israel: "With God's help, the countdown button for the destruction of the Zionist regime has been pushed by the hands of the children of Lebanon and Palestine. By God's will, we will witness the destruction of this regime in the near future."

Charming. Another rhetorical shot from The Madman of Tehran.

(Remember, though, that his best friends are those in the U.S. pushing for war. He needs them just as they need him.)
