    This is what you're referring to:

    WSJ: Scholar Warns Iran's Ahmadinejad May Have 'Cataclysmic Events' In Mind For August 22
    Tue Aug 08 2006 1035 ET


    In a WALL STREET JOURNAL op-ed Tuesday, Princeton's Bernard Lewis writes: "There is a radical difference between the Islamic Republic of Iran and other governments with nuclear weapons. This difference is expressed in what can only be described as the apocalyptic worldview of Iran's present rulers."

    "In Islam as in Judaism and Christianity, there are certain beliefs concerning the cosmic struggle at the end of time -- Gog and Magog, anti-Christ, Armageddon, and for Shiite Muslims, the long awaited return of the Hidden Imam, ending in the final victory of the forces of good over evil, however these may be defined."

    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad "and his followers clearly believe that this time is now, and that the terminal struggle has already begun and is indeed well advanced. It may even have a date, indicated by several references by the Iranian president to giving his final answer to the US about nuclear development by Aug. 22," which this year corresponds "to the 27th day of the month of Rajab of the year 1427. This, by tradition, is the night when many Muslims commemorate the night flight of the prophet Muhammad on the winged horse Buraq, first to 'the farthest mosque,' usually identified with Jerusalem, and then to heaven and back (c.f., Koran XVII.1).

    "This might well be deemed an appropriate date for the apocalyptic ending of Israel and if necessary of the world. It is far from certain that Mr. Ahmadinejad plans any such cataclysmic events precisely for Aug. 22. But it would be wise to bear the possibility in mind."

    ok:
    here's my question.
    Remember our President some time back told us all about the AXIS of EVIL.
    All those countries that wanted ups wiped from the planet.
    Somebody explain to me why the citizens of those countries are allowed in the US?
    For any reason.

    August 22

    I saw that on the Glen Beck Program.

    It does seem like that is a pretty symbolic/important day...it would be good to be a little bit extra vigilant on August 22.

    Question Why indeed?

    Good question. I dunno. Here's are other critical questions: Why are our borders NOT secure? Why is border security for the USA a function of law enforcement rather than the military as it is for every OTHER country on Earth? Why is the most powerful man in the world deliberately hamstringing our valiant men and women who are trying to secure our borders with useless Rules of Engagement and lip service "support?" This is NOT a "rant" or a slam of a partisian nature. These are valid questions upon which the very survival of our national identity and soverignty rest!

    That is easy to answer.

    To do ANY of the above would not serve to further the cause of One World Government....a government in which NO nation would be soverein.
    Think about it.

    Well in the case that started the thread, Egypt isn't on Bush's "Axis" list. I have no idea if an Iranian or North Korean can get in the country (in a "normal" manner). I'd like to think that if we let them in at all we keep a better eye on them.

    Well with the lastest news from GB, I am concerned about any group that comes here for one stated reason and then "disappears". How about those guys from Dearborn with cell phones, etc. they caught up with in southern Ohio? The August 22nd theory my not be so far fetched.

    I'm shooting in an IDPA-style match on Aug 20th (and Aug 12th) so I'll be in good practice.

    They are between 18 and 22 years old, said a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the search for the men is continuing.
    A source with knowledge of the investigation said the men, who range in age from 17 to 22, may be staying in New York, visiting relatives and trying to find jobs.
    Hmm..it seems one of them is getting younger...maybe he's trying to be the Typhoid Mary of some age-reducing plague?

    What will it take for decisive action to be taken in regards to avoiding these type of situations....
    I don't have the answer, but I'm sure someone does.....
