"FARS News Agency reported on September 6 that the Islamic Republic Guards
Corps [IRGC] spokesman said: "When the White House is [too] miserable to
deal with a natural disaster, how can it enter into military confrontation
with a [powerful] country like the Islamic Republic of Iran that has the
valuable experience of an eight-year sacred defence [Iran-Iraq war]?"
Mas’ud Jazayeri said: "Unlike the impression it gives, America’s management
and leadership power is like a balloon that can be deflated very easily." He
said what happened during America’s military actions against Afghanistan and
Iraq confirmed his statement. He added: "The incompetence of America’s
self-made giant in Iraq shows the inefficiency of the US Defence and State
Departments and security apparatus more than the strength of the opposite
Asked whether America would take military action against Iran, the IRGC
spokesman said: "A small mistake by America will turn each of its states
into a crisis zone. Mismanagement and severe psychological problems that
occurred during Hurricane Katrina openly explain that other countries have
the power to turn different parts of America into war-hit zones at any point
of time. …
"Insider information reveals a lack of coordination among military, security

Iran is and has been the major state sponsor of Islamic terrorism, sedition, and violence ever since the creation of the Islamic Republic in 1979. The hostage takers who once virtually ruled Lebanon were a small group of Lebanese and Iranians operating directly under Iranian government control.
You didn’t like the Shah? Look what you got instead! Governments are faced continuously with decisions that must be made between unpalatable alternatives. The Shah was a tyrant? What do you call the regime that is running Iran now?
Like all Islamic zealot groups the Iranian government sees the world in "apocalyptic" terms. Like AQ, the Islamic Republic seeks a future world in which Islam is a world theocratic state, a universalist "Ummah."
Their negotiations with the Europeans are striclty tactical in nature. They have no intention of giving up their nuclear program. I am sure that they find the evident sincerity of European efforts at peace mongering to be amusing. You can also be sure that they find our more or less unintentional progress in installing a Shia government in Iraq to be evidence of our incomprehension and weakness.

People should not let their dislike and suspicion of the Bush Administration blind them to the danger that is Iran.
