For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Ahmadinejad Shows His Evil Hand

Y. Mansharof and A. Savyon of MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) have compiled recent speeches made by Ahmadinejad (the apocalyptic, Hitler-wannabe) which betray his true intentions, and hopefully puts things in perspective for those who wish to appease Iran:

Escalation in the Positions of Iranian President Ahmadinejad– Special Report


In several recent speeches, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad outlined Iran's nuclear policy and set forth his vision regarding the interrelationship between Iran and the West.

In a speech about Iran's nuclear program, Ahmadinejad declared that Iran has become a global power, and that it would place its nuclear technology at the service of those determined to confront the U.S. and other Western countries. He announced that Iran was now successfully operating over 3,000 centrifuges, continued to downplay the impact of the U.N. Security Council sanctions on Iran, and reiterated Iran's official stance of refusal to freeze its nuclear activity. Ahmadinejad also harshly censured senior Iranian officials who had called for compromise with the West on Iran's nuclear program out of fear of a possible U.S. attack on Iran, hinting that they were traitors.

In addition, Ahmadinejad declared that today, the world was at an historic turning point. The history of the West, he said, had reached its end, and the appearance of the Hidden Imam, heralding the era of Islamic Shi'ite rule, was nigh. Thus, he called on the nations of the world to rise up against the hegemony of the West, headed by the U.S., and predicted the imminent collapse of Israel, which he called "Satan's standard-bearer."

Something needs to be done about Iran.

In June of this year Fred Thompson said the following:

"Iran's poor economy and domestic opposition to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad could prompt "regime change."

"We have a lot of friends in Iran who apparently feel their leader is trying to drive them off of a militant, religious extremism cliff," he said.

"Some of these problems might work in our favor especially if we ratcheted the sanctions a bit more. I would think that certainly a blockade would be a possibility if we could get the international cooperation to do that.

"I think regime change might be an option ... but you can't take the military option off the table."

In the mean time, perhaps Diane Sawyer could fly back over to Iran and ask the little kook more questions about his I-Pod. Don't forget your headscarf, Diane. No telling what that suppressed freak will do if he sees your pretty blond hair exposed.
