This can't be good.

From LGF:

This doesn’t sound good at all: Ahmadinejad promises Muslims will ‘rejoice’ soon.

"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday promised a “rejoicing” for Muslims in the Middle East “soon,” the Islamic Republic News Agency reported.
Speaking to university officials in the town of Mashhad, Ahmadinejad said the “volcano of rage” at the “arrogant powers” was “on the verge of eruption.”
Referring to escalating violence in Lebanon and northern Israel, he was quoted as saying, “The Zionists themselves have realized that they have launched a risky move and are aware that the flame of the fury of the regional states will set them ablaze.”

I tell myself that no one could be so stupid as think they can defeat Israel or the U.S. But then I remember that we are talking about the President of Iran who said in April that Israel is a “rotten tree” that would be “annihilated with one storm.”

And then I realize that he is that stupid.

*This is interesting*:

Tehran, Iran, Jul. 18 – Hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has invited Iraqi President Jalal Talabani to Iran, a government-run news agency reported.
