Malachi's Axis of Evil (Mal 1:4)

"If Edom says, “We are shattered but we will rebuild the ruins,” the LORD of hosts says, “They may build, but I will tear down, and they will be called ‘[the axis of evil],’ and ‘the people with whom the LORD is angry forever.’”" - Malachi 1:4

If you take into account the modern land area this is a pretty fascinating verse, and I'm not one to read many passages literally. I'm not saying this one even should be. But was President Bush just fulfilling prophecy when he named it "The Axis of Evil"?

Granted they say Edom was in modern day Jordan which is not part of the Axis of Evil, but if the Edomites spread out and filled that area, it sure would make an interesting argument.

Here the words actually used are 'the wicket country' (in the ESV), but wow at the similarity.

Thoughts anyone?
