What “Harsh Blow To Global Arrogance” Will Iran Deliver On Feb. 11?

Iran’s little dictator, who tends to wear a suit coat more than Obama, is making a prediction, as published in Iran Press TV[1]

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the nation will deliver a harsh blow to the “global arrogance” on this year’s anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

“The Islamic Revolution opened a window to liberty for the human race, which was trapped in the dead ends of materialism,” Ahmadinejad said during a cabinet meeting on Sunday.

“If the Islamic Revolution had not occurred, liberalism and Marxism would have crushed all human dignity in their power-seeking and money-grubbing claws. Nothing would have remained of human and spiritual principles,” he added.

Ahmadinejad said that in the three decades of its history, the Islamic Revolution had inspired some great developments in the world.

The Iranian president made the remarks as the 31st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution approaches.

There are very few things the Iranian government can do to deliver a harsh blow, none of them good. The top five would be cutting off oil exports (which which would hurt them even worse, since they have to import quite a bit of refined oil, as their refining capabilities are low,) sending out waves of suicide bombers, launching a military strike on Israel (low probability if ground troops, as they would have to cross Iraq to do it, but, they could launch missiles,) detonating a nuclear weapon, and detonating a nuclear weapon in Israel.

Of course, there is also a good probability that all Ahmadinehad will do is deliver a speech. Like Obama, he isn’t able to match his rhetoric with actual actions. Thankfully, in both cases. Interestingly, the Guardian published this on Sunday[2]

Tension between the US and Iran heightened dramatically today with the disclosure that Barack Obama is deploying a missile shield to protect American allies in the Gulf from attack by Tehran.

Could US intelligence know something about Iran’s intentions? We have ten days to wait.
