S9, The American Spectator is every bit …

So, The American Spectator is every bit as ignorant and stupid as its British namesake.

Like Adolf Hitler, the theocrats who run Iran have told us exactly what they plan to do. They plan to build nuclear weapons, and use them to “wipe Israel off the map.” They have said this plan is rooted in their fundamental religious beliefs and doctrines regarding the return of their God to Earth.

Silly. The Mahdi is not considered God.

Also, I have never understood claims that the Iranian clerical establishment is so beholden to religious beliefs, that it would fire a nuclear weapon on a country which contains one of the most scared places in Islam.
