When I was young, Americans were pounded with visions of Nikita Kruscheshev shouting 'we will bury you.' It was only a decade later when I was learning Russian that I was told the whole statement. Nikita had said 'In the economic struggle we will toss you into the outhouse." Quite a difference. I have asked my friend Mo, who is from Iran (US Citizen now) and hates the Ayatollahs, and he has told me that the language used by Ahmadinijad is far more fanciful than that Israel would be destroyed by Iran. He tells me that it is closer to the idea that Israel will somehow disappear. I wish you could know the sardonic smile which he had when he told me this.
