Sarah Palin doesn’t see Iran having a nuclear weapon as a mere national security problem, she believes it could lead to an ultimate world battle between good and evil.

The Mama Grizzly delivered some of her foreign policy leanings in an interview with the conservative website Newsmax.com, which will further fuel speculation she is running for President in 2012.

“We have to realize that, at the end of the day, a nuclear weapon in that country’s hands is not just Israel‘s problem or America‘s problem — it is the world’s problem,” Palin said of Iran.

“It could lead to an Armageddon,” Palin said, referencing an epic, end-of-days Biblical battle. “It could lead to that World War III that could decimate so much of this planet.”

Palin’s strong language is a departure from her 2009 interview with Fox NewsSean Hannity, in which she appeared to confuse Iraq with Iran, when asked how the U.S. could prevent the latter from acquiring nuclear weapons.

In February, she suggested President Obama could help his reelection effort by attacking Iran.

Iran insists its nuclear program is strictly for civilian purposes. The United Nations have imposed several economic embargoes on Iran to deter their development of a nuclear weapon.

As for her own presidential aspirations, the Tea Party star and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate told Newsmax.com that a run for the White House would depend on whether the country was ready for a leader who is “out of the box.”

Palin’s full interview with the website will be released Tuesday afternoon.

According to excerpts, Palin slams the President for his health care plan and his military strategies.

“I want to say, ‘You’re going to send our troops there in the danger zone, you better have a darn good reason why they’re going, and you better be committed to victory.’
