IRAN IS DANGEROUSLY RACING TO THE PRECIPICE.
A popular aphorism has it that those the gods want to kill, he first make them mad; and so it seems with Tehran which apparently does not get it that their cup is almost full. As if they have not provoked the world enough already, their President Ahmadinejad just told the entire mankind to go to hell for all that he cares and that Iran can tough it out alone?
Instead of apologizing and atoning for its undiplomatic misbehavior, either tacitly or overtly, of invading yet again another country's embassy in Tehran, it is mouthing off its braggadocio. According to Ahmadinejad, Iran will stick to their revolution's ideology at all cost and it does not matter if the entire universe rose up against them? In his exact own words, Ahmadinejad said, "We will stick to our revolution's principles and values with all our power even if the entire world rise up against us." Icheoku says the entire world rising up against any country should be a very frightening situation which no sane country should ever brag of not caring about. With Iran's current unwise stand, it now seems more likely than not that the lighted fuse would certainly make contact with the mother-load.
Unfortunately though, Iran seems oblivious of this freight-train headed their way and will be made to pay a stiff price in the event a military confrontation results. Iran will be made to answer for all their intransigence over the many years including the hostage taking of the seventies; and they failed to realize that the West hardly forgets or forgives such thumbing of the nose. But it is not yet too late for an about turn mea culpa to starve off an impending payback; but the decision is Tehran's to make.
