Eliminated by one storm?
Not trying to beat this to death, but another translation of Ahmadinejad's latest unmasking of the Iranian regime via Canada's CBC is interesting.
"The Zionist regime is a rotten, dried tree that will be eliminated by one storm."
One storm. How might Ahmadinejad envision a single storm that annihilates Israel? Quick. Three guesses.
The Financial Times uses an interpretation that reads “a dry and rotten tree that can be destroyed by a storm.” Either way, the point is made. Again.
Without doubt, the mullahs wish this loose cannon would shut his mouth. Not that they disagree with him, mind you. But rather because every time he shoots off like this, he is confirming Iran's true nuclear ambitions. They have worked hard to achieve first secrecy, then ambiguity, in the interests of preserving the progressive march toward nuclear capability. Surely they fear Ahmadinejad, not a statesman by trade, is going to blow the whole thing.
