Apocalypse 2008?

A simple question, why does Arnaud de Borchgrave think that Iran's Ahmadinejad has set the date of the Apocalpse for 2008?

"The ultimate promise of all Divine religions," says Ahmadinejad, "will be fulfilled with the emergence of a perfect human being [the 12th Imam], who is heir to all prophets. He will lead the world to justice and absolute peace. Oh mighty Lord, I pray to you to hasten the emergence of your last repository, the promised one." He reckons the return of the Imam, AWOL for 11 centuries, is only two years away.

This is the first article that I've seen that purports to have identified a particular year for the end of the world in Ahmadinejad's theology. It's quite important to figure out if this is actually true. The fate of the Middle East, and possibly far beyond may depend on it.
