'Iran will deliver telling blow to global powers on Feb. 11'

Something to look forward to this month; Iran promising a big surprise on February 11, the anniversary of the formation of the Islamic Republic.

What do you suppose it could be? Yes, it could be a nuke test but it is doubtful they've enriched enough uranium to the 85-90% level necessary for bomb-grade material. Maybe they will unveil another top secret facility? Maybe the 13th Imam will fly in on a magic carpet?

Regardless, I'm sure it will be anti-climactic. But accompanying this braggadocio, is some hysterically funny rhetoric as reported in the official Iranian press:

"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.

Iranians are expected to pour into the streets on February 11 to celebrate the occasion in public rallies across the country, as they have done annually over the past three decades.

I wonder if Ahmadinejad is available to do a Vegas floor show next month?

Also, I wouldn't be too eager if I were the leadership to see people "pouring into the streets" just now. They're liable to turn on their oppressors and make life very difficult for them.
