All anyone needs to understand why Iran is furiously making nuclear weaponry and now waging actual war on American troops and Iraqis with incursions of it’s Qud’s forces, is to understand the religious estacheology of Ahmadinejad.
In the particular stripe of Shia Islam he belongs, the appearance of the 12th Imam from a well in Tehran ( I keep recalling scriptures about how the Beast will rise from a pit) will come after a Great Jihad against Satan’s nation, which will result in much blood on both Muslim and Infidels. Ahmadinejad is willing to sacrifice his entire nation to wrath and retribution because he believes such a sacrifice will prove the Sunna’s worth – and the 12th Imam will then come in power and lead all of Islam to victory over the entire world – by waging war FROM BABYLON (Iraq).
Osama Bin Laden’s ideas are not far off that track, the difference being their devotion to the Mahdi who comes is not derrived from the mystic belief of a well-rising Imam. Nevertheless, all Islam has prophecies that pit Believers against the world in a massive war that ‘purifies’ it for the coming of their messiah, and all of Jihadist Islam is working to unite all Muslims together; Shia, Sunni and Wahabbist – for the Great Struggle against America and the West.
Losing control of Iraq, means losing the future staging ground of the 12th Imam or Mahdi messiah who will wage a war of annihilation from there to conquer the world for Islam and establish the Caliphate.
Even now, Iran sends troops to attack and kill Americans and Iraqi’s, arming the Jihad insurgency there, but the media is working in league with Iran, and spikes any information about the deaths and killings of Americans by Iranians as simply part of the insurgent ‘civil war’ there.
Iran’s Big Plans
From establishing training and base camps for both Shi’a and Sunni fighters (further proof – as if more was needed that sectarian lines are not an obstacle to cooperation if there is a common enemy to be fought), to funding and equipping insurgents within Iraq, Iran’s ever-growing involvement in the fight against Iraq, and against the United States within that country, has been both real and pronounced for several years now. That involvement not only includes sending soldiers from the elite Quds Force of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard across Iraq’s eastern border, it also includes supplying terrorists in Iraq with rockets, assault weapons, and the materials necessary to assemble EFPs (explosively-formed penetrators — an improvised explosive device which, in the past two years, has become the number one killer of American troops in Iraq)…
Ahmadinejad declared that Iran would work with “neighbors and regional friends like Saudi Arabia” to replace the US in Iraq should a withdrawal take place. Saudi Arabia has, as yet, issued no response to this claim, although common sense would suggest that any dealings the Sunni state had with Shi’a Iran regarding the future of Iraq would be approached with the lessons learned from Russia’s 1939 treaty with Hitler’s Germany freshly borne in mind…
This does not even take into account the crisis such a development would cause for Israel, as a nation whose leader has repeatedly and openly called for their destruction would be able to reach them with weapons capable of making that Muslim fantasy a devastating reality. The response by too many in the West to this last, of course, is at best to ignore it, and at worst to applaud the unspeakable barbarism required to commit such an act. In the end, those who swore to “never forget” Europe’s own horrific crime against the Jews — the Holocaust — and who swore “never again” to allow such an act, are sitting idly by as the next one rapidly approaches.
I listen in incredulous amazement, to the stupidity of the anti-war Democrats, the Democrat Presidential Candidates, and the Libertarian-in-Republican-Clothing Ron Paul and his supporters keep calling for pulling out, retreating and blaming America for the calls Iran is making to destroy America and Israel.
Clearly none of them are listening to Ahmadinejad, Nasarella, and Zawahiri, they wrongly believe Iran poses no threat and their ideological agendas for power trumps even a modicum of common sense.
They will make Neville Chamberlain look like a piker in comparison.
A greater Holocaust is coming than anything the world has experienced before.
Few in America and the West will beleive it.
But Jihadists, do.
