Mer Billmon om Iran

"My own opinion is that while Ahmadinejad may be a fanatic, he's also a rational political actor — at least as far as increasing and consolidating his own power is concerned. (That's not conceding very much. By that definition, Stalin and the Ayatollah Khomeini were both rational actors, and so was Hitler, at least until the late innings.) If Ahmadinejad is turning up the heat instead of down, it's probably because he believes conflict with the Americans serves his interests — and Iran's. (If he's like most politicians, he probably sees the two as identical.)"
