Is it real or is it Memorex?

To us (relatively) normal folk, it’s hard to imagine that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad actually believes there were green rays coming out of his head (or some such), but if he does, we better start taking some of his threatening statements at face value. Think about it – it’s going to be like having a paranoid schizophrenic as head of state, sort of like Caligula but with nuclear arms. Anyway, aljazeera reports his latest prouncements. Even they sound a little nervous.
