Iran threatens to deliver 'harsh blow' to 'global arrogance'

Iran is threatening to deliver a 'harsh blow' to 'global arrogance' next Thursday, the anniversary of the Islamic revolution (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
"The Islamic Revolution opened a window to liberty for the human race, which was trapped in the dead ends of materialism," Ahmadinejad said during a cabinet meeting on Sunday.

"If the Islamic Revolution had not occurred, liberalism and Marxism would have crushed all human dignity in their power-seeking and money-grubbing claws. Nothing would have remained of human and spiritual principles," he added.

Ahmadinejad said that in the three decades of its history, the Islamic Revolution had inspired some great developments in the world.
Given what we know about corruption in Iran, it's funny to hear Ahmadinejad talking about the 'dead ends of materialism.' Has he looked around lately?

But my guess is that he's referring to the report I blogged on Saturday night that said that Iran will announce next week that it has enriched uranium to 20% on its own. Of course, that would moot the West's offer to exchange 20% enriched uranium for Iran's current stock of low enriched uranium, which the IAEA keeps insisting is still on the table.

What could go wrong?

Maybe this is connected to this recent bit of scary intel: US intelligence finds 5,000 Hizballah trained to seize Galilee towns. This would certainly start a major conflagration.
