Latest from the sulking Ahmadinejad, hurt and feeling low that the noose might be tightening, “They want to keep science in their hands only … they don’t want the rest of the world to progress.”
Aside from the fact that most don’t feel Iran’s bomb would be “progress,” why would the glorious Islamic revolution, and its brilliant Islamic scholars, need science from anyone else’s hands? Can’t Ahmadinejad go back into his well and conjure up some engineers that are Iranian trained, unpolluted by Zionist physics, and also religiously correct? Once more, one of the most frustrating aspects of the post 9/11 landscape has been this constant teen-age passive-aggressive syndrome, like hurt Hamas whining that we don’t support democracy since we don’t subsidize elected terrorists. Apparently in between promising to blow up this and wipe out that, these poor jihadists don’t feel they get enough attention and help from the Great Satan, all eerily reminiscent of the Sultan scrambling to cast (poor) copies of Venetian bronze cannons so that he could destroy Venetian galleys and impose “superior” Islamic science and culture on the Western Mediterranean.
