I wanted to copy and paste a post I had from the first of the year that relates to my title and on my post from a few days ago in which I think is relevant so here it is:

I posted the other day about the Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and wanted to add some more info on what I have read or heard about his beliefs.  It has been said that he believes the “Mahdi” will return and Ahmadinejad needs to help speed up his return.  Who is the Mahdi you might ask?  He is suppose to be the prophesied redeemer of Islam and is suppose to return to earth with Jesus being a subordinate to him.  I have no issue with anyone having a faith and believing a certain way about their religion.  The issue I have is with the leader of a country that believes this and thinks that he needs to help the Mahdi to return by instigating some type of global conflict is ridiculous.  The reason why we should be concerned is that Iran is on the verge of nuclear weapons and someone who believes this way with nuclear weapons in their possession is very dangerous and should be taken very seriously with what they say.

I do not believe there needs to be an attack on Iran as I think there are things going on behind the scene’s now to try to stop this man.  While this is only speculation on my part the following is worth mentioning.  If you look at a map of the middle east and find Iran see the countries to the west and east of Iran.  The country to west is Iraq and the country to the east is Afghanistan and now the United States is in both countries.  Coincidence?? I don’t know but I believe the U.S. is using this to our advantage to destabilize Iran so an attack will not be needed. I don’t believe it is a coincidence either that all of a sudden there are demonstrations in Iran as I think the U.S. is helping to organize these which is a good thing in my opinion.

I am not defending the Bush administration, but all along maybe they all knew Iran was driving toward nuclear weapons and by invading Iraq this would start the policy of “containment” against Iran with the United States being able to influence Iran from its eastern and western borders.  Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think.
