Iranian "Apocalypse"-mongers feed Neo-con fantasies

Any mention of an Iranian nuclear weapon is taboo in the Islamic Republic, which insists that its nuclear programme is entirely for peaceful, civil purposes. So it is remarkable, to say the least, that an article has appeared on the Gerdab website, run by Iran's Revolutionary Guards, anticipating the day after Iran's first test of a nuclear warhead.

This is right up there with the supposed discovery of supposed Iranian laptops containing supposed nuke plans.

The fact is that there's also a "Promise Keeper" ("prophecy fulfiller") faction in Iran, and it just so happens to be affiliated with the Revolutionary Guard, similar to the relationship between Christian Fundies and Neo-cons. This sounds like it's intended to provide the Neo-cons with some "inside evidence" (their favorite kind: some supposed defector "spilling the beans," without any physical evidence to support his claims) of an Iranian nuclear weapons programs, precisely when the financial system is collapsing and LaRouche has recently warned that Netanyahu might drag us into a war with Iran. They'll fulfill their "prophecy" if it's the last thing they do.
