Nor would I pretend to possess Nostadamus' capacity to predict the fate of our nemesis by intentionally calling the country Persia instead of Iran so as to cause people to conjure up images of adorable, cuddly cats and expensive hand-woven rugs instead of a menacing place armed to the teeth with missiles and other military hardware with names culled directly from the Muslim's holy Quran such as "shihab" or comet, "sijjil" meaning red hot clay-stones and "zilzal" a reference to earthquakes which can also allude to an impending day of judgment.
