Much virtual ink has been spilled over Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s request to visit the site of the World Trade Center during his visit to NYC, though I haven’t seen anyone suggest the following:
- Ahmadinejad believes in the Hidden 12th Imam whose reemergence will bring about the end of this current world order and the reemergence of the Islamic caliphate.
- The Big A. believes that the martyring of the entire Iranian people, pursuant to nuking Israel, is an acceptable trade-off to bring about the Mahdi’s return.
- Given #2, might Ahmadinejad’s assassination also bring about the regional chaos necessary to wipe Israel out/give Iran the casus belli to nuke Israel?
I’m just saying, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Mad Mahmoud might be looking to ignite a wider conflict by sacrificing his own person on the alter of the WTC. Given his past crazy behavior, I wouldn’t put it past him.
