I have a previous blog post where I discuss Ahmadinejad and his believe that he must hasten the return of the Mahdi by bringing about chaos and destruction to the world. In recent days a story has been published by a former Iranian Revolutionary Guard where he says Iran will bomb Israel to bring about the return of the Mahdi.

To me, this continue to me of major concern if this believe permeates the Iranian government and given the fact Iran is a theocracy governed by religious fanatics makes this statement even more believable.  As I have said in the past Iran has one of the largest oil and natural gas reserves in the world and they need nuclear energy?? This is a farce to obtain nuclear weapons and according to their believe in the Mahdi then they must create so much destruction so the Mahdi will return and rule over everyone. So to me this is why Iran is wanting to go nuclear.

Once Iran gets these weapons the only deterrent stopping them will be the United States and the fact this country has 5,000 nuclear warheads. It’s a shame to have this amount of weaponry but that is the only thing these nut jobs like Ahmadinejad understand.  I have linked to the most recent article on this and copied one of posts about the Mahdi for further explanation.


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 supposed to be the prophesied redeemer of Islam and is supposed 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.
