Iranian President Ahmadinejad suggests the world order is about to collapse:
President: Outdated world order on verge of collapseIRNA - Feb 22, 2011
Tehran (IRNA) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that the traditional and outdated world order is now on the verge of collapse.
President Ahmadinejad made the remark in a meeting with visiting Ecuadorian Parliament Speaker Fernando Cordero in Tehran on Tuesday.
World nations should not let those who took control of the world over the past 300 years impose their will under a new guise, he said. According to the presidential website, at the meeting, the Iranian president said the global hegemony has reached a dead-end. http://www.irna.ir/ENNewsShow.aspx?NID=30260545&SRCH=1
But who might the Iranian President believe is behind this? Well, though he seems to be warning about the West, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made some interesting comments about the situation in the Middle East a few weeks ago:
In his fiery style, Ahmadinejad, showed his messianic beliefs on Friday, saying the world was witnessing a revolution managed by Imam Mehdi, the 12 Shiite imam who disappeared as a five-year-old in the 10th century and who Shiites believe would return on the judgement day.
“The final move has begun. We are in the middle of a world revolution managed by this dear (12th Imam). A great awakening is unfolding. One can witness the hand of Imam in managing it,” said Ahmadinejad, wearing his trademark jacket. (Davari M. US, Israel will soon exit Middle East: Ahmadinejad.

So, somehow Iran believes that the Imam Mahdi is behind what is going on. Well, I believe that the final King of the South is currently alive, is Islamic, and may be associated with one or more transnational Islamic groups. If the King of the South is playing much of a behind the scenes role at this time will remain to be seen.
The President of Iran does not wish to promote peace, as that is not his agenda (see Iran’s Ahmadinejad Does Not Want Peace).
Perhaps it should be mentioned that the President of Iran believes that it is his special calling to create enough chaos in order to stimulate the arrival of an Islamic leader that he and others refer to as the Imam Mahdi. This leader is supposed to unite Islam and root out problems within its religion.
For various reasons, the Imam Mahdi sounds a lot like the final King of the South that the Bible foretells (Daniel 11:40-43). And he may be part of a deal that will affect the USA and its Anglo-allies (Psalm 83). And this will not be good.
Yet, the President of Iran continues to make statements to suggest he wants conflict and such a leader to appear.
