Iranian media reports that President Ahmadinejad yesterday threatened that Iran is ready to deal a “harsh blow to global powers” on February 11.
“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.
It is unclear exactly to what developments the Iranian dictator refers. The slaughter of innocent people, perhaps? The holding of American hostages? The threats to destroy the state of Israel? The murder of gays? Or perhaps just the complete subjugation of what used to be a vibrant society into a bleak and nearly hopeless people.
But in response to this threat of a “harsh blow”, is it possible that President Obama will take more action than merely sending a sternly-worded protest letter to the United Nations? Possibly. Reports of missile defenses being sent to the Persian Gulf have been floating around since late January…
Is this Obama’s “cowboy” moment? We can only hope.
