Normal 8/22/06???

Since Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran feels that his job is to get rid of Isralies and Americans to help "set free" the muslims of the world, he has threatend us on the date of 8/22/06. What do you guys think of this? Is he really going to do something? Bush is taking this very seriously and has us on full allert. This shit is getting crazy!!!

I concur

Actually I hope it hits him between the legs.

If he ever made a nuclear move then the Madhi will return to a pile of radioactive dust

Where are you getting this from? The only media story I know of relaying anything like this is an opinion piece from last Tuesday's Wall Street Journal by the historian Bernard Lewis:
Quote:
Ahmadinejad and his followers clearly believe that this time is now, and that the terminal struggle has already begun and is indeed well advanced. It may even have a date, indicated by several references by the Iranian president to giving his final answer to the U.S. about nuclear development by Aug. 22. This year, Aug. 22 corresponds, in the Islamic calendar, to the 27th day of the month of Rajab of the year 1427. This, by tradition, is the night when many Muslims commemorate the night flight of the Prophet Muhammad on the winged horse Buraq, first to "the farthest mosque," usually identified with Jerusalem, and then to heaven and back (c.f., Qur'an XVII.1). This might well be deemed an appropriate date for the apocalyptic ending of Israel and if necessary of the world. It is far from certain that Ahmadinejad plans cataclysmic events precisely for Aug. 22. But it would be wise to bear the possibility in mind.

Bernard Lewis is nutty and reading too much into "the final answer," which, gosh, could actually be a verbal answer.

Aug. 22 is the end of the Persian-calendar month of Mordad. Ahmedinejad, being Iranian, was probably referencing the Mordad "end of the month."

Yeah, but this is just repeating what I already posted--Bernard Lewis' *speculations* about the possible symbolic significance of Ahmadinejad's having named 8/22 as the date by which Iran will give its "final answer" to the US on its nuclear development plans. Hannity doesn't present any confirming quotes from Ahmadinejad (note his choice of wording, "implied"--though even that's highly disingenuous) or any other new information to substantiate that speculation. (Plus, as Judah points out, 8/22 happens to be the end of the Iranian month of Mordad--several news stories I've seen now, quoting or paraphrasing Lewis, make a big deal out of the "fact" that Ahmadinejad had earlier said "by the end of August," then changed it to "by August 22," as if the clarification necessarily heralds something ominous, when in fact what he'd originally said was "by the end of Mordad" which is August 22.)

Even if one thinks Lewis is onto something with his speculations, it's still irresponsible to present it as "Ahmadinejad Threatens U.S.!!!"

Bush would have more (American) public support in going after Iran than he has ever had in Iraq, even after all that has transpired.

I believe that.

I haven't paid my bills in the last fortnight in eager anticipation of the end of the world. I'm going to start drinking pretty soon.
