Saddam's Pre-Invasion Chest-Thumping:
"We are not intimidated by the size of the armies, or the type of hardware the US has brought."
"Allah is on our side. That is why we will beat the aggressor."
"Keep your eyes on your enemy and be faster than him."
The Post-Invasion Reality:
"My name is Saddam Hussein. I am the president of Iraq, and I want to negotiate."
Today's Chest Thumping by Ahmadinejad:
"Today, Iran's army is one of the most powerful armies in the world and it will powerfully defend the country's political borders and the nation,"
"It will cut off the hands of any aggressors and will make any aggressor regret it,"
"As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map"
The Likely Future For Ahmadinejad:
Israel doesn't play to the world press.
