    It is interesting that people who know the most about Iran like Reza Kahlili who was a CIA spy and worked under cover for the Revolutionary Guards for ten years, and Islam scholars like Bernard Lewis and Raphael Israeli are the ones most concerned about Iranian mullahs being irrational. People who know nothing about Iran are the most optimistic... Here is what Reza Kahlili said at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy : "Once they get the nuclear bomb, and they have the nuclear capability, and anybody can determine this because they are running multiple convert operations, parallel projects of nuclear bomb and missile delivery systems. It is a parallel project for one purpose, and I can argue both sides of the coin, but my belief is that .this is a messianic regime,  there should be no doubts, they will commit the most horrendous suicide bombing in human history. They will attack Israel, European capitals and Persian Gulf region at the same time, then they will hide in a bunker waiting for Mahdi to get out of that well, ride the white horse, draw that sword and kill the rest of the nonbelievers."
