Thank you, Mark Lincoln, for teaching Talkbalk denizens a wonderful new word! And how very apt in describing Ahmedinejad. The man's a cipher. It's his cheliastic fervour that gets peaceful people riled. Remember - he's a little-man - short-of-stature. Full of bluster. Napoleon-complex. A real target. Doesn't mean Israel or the West has to fire at him (yet). And you're right - he's trying to unify Iranians (not just Persians). Not most-likely to succeed, if history is any gauge.
