President Trump tweets Iran made 'big mistake' after shooting down US drone

Trump tweets Iran made 'big mistake' after shooting down US drone

President Trump tweeted Thursday that Iran made a “VERY BIG MISTAKE” by shooting down a U.S. spy drone in the already tense oil-rich region.Hours earlier, U.S. officials said an Iranian surface-to-air missile shot down the unmanned military surveillance drone. “IRANIAN REPORTS THAT THE AIRCRAFT WAS OVER IRAN ARE FALSE,” the U.S. Central Command said in a statement. “THIS WAS AN UNPROVOKED ATTACK ON A U.S. SURVEILLANCE ASSET IN INTERNATIONAL AIRSPACE.”

Fortunately, the U.S. Navy “flight crew” of this Triton was operating it from Naval Air Station Jacksonville, in Florida, with ground crews in the Middle East for launch, recovery and maintenance. The Tritons have a lot of automatic features but they don’t fly themselves except in back-up mode.

Still, the unprovoked attack on the U.S. Navy Triton was unquestionably an escalation by Iran.

The Triton was on the look-out for Iranian naval attacks, and it was guarding commercial shipping, US and allied naval vessels. The Triton is not your backyard drone. It’s really an unmanned plane derived from the U.S. Air Force RQ-4 Global Hawk and optimized for maritime work. The MQ-4 Triton has a wingspan of 130 feet and at 32,000 lbs., it weighs as much as a city bus or Class 7 truck.

Was the Triton in international airspace? Probably. The Triton didn’t need to loop over Iran’s land mass to carry out its overwater mission.

And get this. Triton is unarmed. This surveillance asset posed absolutely no threat of any kind to Iran. Except, of course, for revealing Iran’s naval activity.

More than any other single factor, Iran’s military activity is breaking apart the 2015 nuclear deal. Iran has acted foolishly, again.

Claiming the Triton shoot-down is yet another sign that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard under the direct command of the Ayatollah is spoiling for a fight.

This shoot-down and Iran’s celebration of it will help the Trump administration make the case with Great Britain, France and Germany that Iran can’t be trusted.

Aerial surveillance is already making a difference. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has overruled her foreign minister and acknowledged “strong evidence” of Iran’s involvement in the tanker shipping attacks, according to Germany’s Deutsche Welle newspaper on June 18.

So the Triton, and its surveillance team-mates are doing their job well.

Iran Tortured This Marine, But The US Government Wouldn’t Do Anything About It

Iran Tortured This Marine, But The US Government Wouldn’t Do Anything About It

It turns out Iran’s government was torturing former Marine Amir Hekmati for much of the 4½ years it held him hostage. The Obama administration apparently doesn’t care, so Hekmati has filed a lawsuit against the Tehran regime.

The suit is a chilling read. Arrested in January 2011 while visiting his grandma, Hekmati faced solitary confinement for the next 17 months.

His captors routinely whipped the bottom of his feet, Tasered him in the kidneys and beat him with batons. Glaring lights and a well-watered floor kept him from sleeping.

They also dosed him with Lithium and other addictive substances, then put him through withdrawal.

He faced psychological torture, too — “news” that his sister was dead, but he couldn’t talk to his family unless he confessed to espionage; a death sentence from a kangaroo court, and more.

Meanwhile, the State Department was pushing his family to stay quiet — warning that US media attention to the case would put him in greater danger.

The lawsuit faces tough sledding: Only this year did the Supreme Court open the door for families of service members killed in the 1983 attack on the Marine barracks in Beirut, the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia and other Iran-sponsored atrocities to collect on their own successful suits from $2 billion in frozen Iranian funds.

Released with two other American hostages in January, Hekmati’s mainly trying to get his life back together.

The Obama administration, meanwhile, is too busy trying to meet Iran’s new demands under the nuclear deal to even think about seeking justice for an American citizen who served his nation with honor.

Iran Naval Commander: We Took Extensive Info From American Sailors’ Phones And Laptops

Iran Naval Commander: We Took Extensive Info From American Sailors’ Phones And Laptops

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) naval commander claimed Monday that his men harvested extensive information from cell phones and laptops confiscated from the 10 American sailors held in custody last month, according to Iranian media.

The Tasnim News Agency, which is affiliated with the IRGC, reported that Admiral Ali Fadavi made the admission during a session of Iranian parliament.

“We have extracted extensive information from their [American sailors’] laptops and cell phones,” Fadavi reportedly said. He added that the information could be made public if a decision were made to release it.

The U.S. sailors and their two small Navy boats were arrested by Iran on January 12 for allegedly drifting into Iranian territorial waters. While Iran initially promised to release them promptly, the American personnel were held overnight and released the following morning. A preliminary report from the Pentagon on the events found that Iran returned two of the sailors’ cell phones without their SIM cards.

The U.S. Central Command report also confirmed that the sailors were arrested at gunpoint.

Wild Thing's comment...............

Of course Muslims lie so who knows if this is true or not, and add in that Obama and his people lie as well so even our own government under Obama cannot be trusted to tell us if this is true or not.

Iran Awards Medals For Capture Of American Sailors

Iran Awards Medals For Capture Of American Sailors

Iran’s supreme leader has awarded medals to navy commanders for capturing U.S. sailors who entered Iranian territorial waters this month, Iran’s state media said on Sunday.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has said Iran should remain wary of its arch-enemy the United States even after a landmark accord over Tehran’s nuclear program, awarded the Fath (Victory) medal to the head of the navy of the Revolutionary Guards and four commanders involved in the seizure of two U.S. Navy boats.

Iran has awarded the Fath medal since 1989 to war heroes, military commanders and politicians, especially those linked to the eight-year Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s.

Iran freed the ten U.S. sailors on Jan. 13, a day after detaining them aboard the two U.S. Navy patrol boats in the Gulf, bringing a swift end to an incident that had rattled nerves shortly before the expected implementation of the nuclear accord with world powers.

The Revolutionary Guardss said it had determined the patrol boats had entered Iranian territorial waters by mistake.

The quick resolution contrasted with previous cases in which British servicemen were held by Iran for considerably longer, in once case almost two weeks.

Kerry: Terrorists Will Likely Benefit From Some of Iran’s Sanction Relief Billions; GOP Senator: 'D’uh'

Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged on Thursday that Iran will likely use some of the tens of billions of dollars its receives as a result of sanctions relief under the nuclear deal to sponsor terrorists.

“I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC [Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps] or of other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists to some degree,” he told CNBC in Davos, Switzerland. “I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every component of that can be prevented.”

Kerry said there were no indications yet that released funds were being directed “to that kind of endeavor” but that he was “sure at some point some of it will.”

In Washington, Republican senators responded scathingly.

“Talk about stating the obvious,” the Associated Press quoted Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) as saying, adding that even when Iran’s economy was crippled by sanctions it was funding “guns, not butter.”

“To have them actually now say, ‘Well, we think some of this might go to terrorism.’ D’uh. I mean, really?”

At a press conference with several Senate colleagues focusing on Iran, Ayotte said it had been obvious from the outset.

“Finally Secretary Kerry acknowledged what all of us who have opposed this [nuclear] agreement from the beginning saw was obvious – that when they got this economic relief and lifting of the sanctions that in fact some of that money was going to support their terrorism in the region,” she said.

Iran’s Military Has Increased Cyber Attacks On Obama Regime Officials

Iran’s Military Has Increased Cyber Attacks On Obama Regime Officials

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps has in recent weeks launched increased cyber attacks on Obama administration officials, hacking into their email and social media accounts. U.S. officials believe that the hacks are related to the recent arrest of an Iranian-American businessman in Tehran.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, has routinely conducted cyberwarfare against American government agencies for years. But the U.S. officials said there has been a surge in such attacks coinciding with the arrest last month of Siamak Namazi, an energy industry executive and business consultant who has pushed for stronger U.S.-Iranian economic and diplomatic ties. Obama administration personnel are among a larger group of people who have had their computer systems hacked in recent weeks, including journalists and academics, the officials said. Those attacked in the administration included officials working at the State Department’s Office of Iranian Affairs and its Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs.

Obama's Nuclear Deal with Iran takes effect on Sunday ( today)

Obama's Nuclear Deal with Iran takes effect on Sunday ( today)

The Hill

The nuclear deal with Iran takes effect on Sunday, setting in motion a series of events that will put President Obama’s diplomatic gamble to the test.

Iran is months away from putting in place the limits on its nuclear program that would trigger relief from economic sanctions, and an international inspection regime is only just beginning.

Still, Sunday’s “Adoption Day” represents a big moment for the Obama administration; having prevented the deal from dying in Congress, Obama officials must now see whether Iran can deliver.
“We are moving now to the implementation stage, and it is essential that we will maintain our vigilance, our unity of approach and our common purpose,” Secretary of State John Kerry said in a speech at Indiana University this week.

“Now, the Middle East remains a deeply troubled place, but every problem in the region would be made much worse if countries were to move towards nuclear weapons.”

Critics note that Iran has shown no willingness to change its behavior after reaching the deal, even staging a ballistic missile test that the United States on Friday called a breach of international sanctions.

Iran Just Unveiled A New Piece Of Technology That Makes Obama's Iran Deal Much Scarier

Iran Just Unveiled A New Piece Of Technology That Makes Obama's Iran Deal Much Scarier....... PHOTOS AT LINK.

Iran’s Mehr News reports that mass-production of a smart torpedo called “Valfajr,” which means “dawn,” began on Tuesday.

The news agency noted that the missiles contain various features including “anti-deception” technology “highly-destructive and explosive warheads with the capability to surprise and completely annihilate and drown targets within seconds.”

The Valfajr, originally unveiled in 2011, has a 485 pound warhead.

Fox News reports that the torpedo operates at high speeds in shallow or deep waters and can be used to sink heavy vessels. However, “Iran occasionally announces production of new weapons, which cannot be independently verified,” according to the news outlet.

Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan stated that the torpedo’s use is only for defensive purposes. “The Islamic Republic armed forces will only target and open fire on those who intend to attack the country,” he said.

Iran Threatens Suicide Bombings Against U.S. Warships

Iran Threatens Suicide Bombings Against U.S. Warships

A commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has threatened terror attacks against U.S. warships and vowed that the Islamic Republic would chase U.S. forces into “the Gulf of Mexico” in order to exact revenge for any attacks, according to regional reports.

Alireza Tangsiri, an IRGC lieutenant commander, said that suicide bombers are on stand by and ready to “blow up themselves” to “destroy the U.S. warships,” according to remarks made Monday in Iran’s state-controlled Fars News Agency.

“They [the U.S.] have tested us once and if necessary, there are people who will blow up themselves with ammunitions to destroy the U.S. warships,” Tangsiri was quoted as saying.

He added that if the United States takes any hostile action against Iran, the country’s military forces would pursue the Americans into the Gulf of Mexico.

“I declare now that if the enemy wants to spark a war against Iran, we will chase them even to the Gulf of Mexico and we will (certainly) do it,” he said.

The threats come a day after Iran test fired ballistic missiles in the region, in a potential violation of international agreements barring such activity.

Iran Has Missiles Pointed At U.S. Bases

American Military News

One of the top military leaders in Iran, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, had some very stern words this week regarding Iranian firepower and their focus on U.S. targets in the Middle East.

On the day that Iran unveiled new high-tech torpedoes and a joint war room along with Russia, Syria, and Iraq, Hajizadeh said:

“Some of the threats by the U.S. are aimed at appeasing the Zionists, while others are for the purpose of domestic consumption (in the U.S.), but what is important is that they are aware of and acknowledge our capabilities and deterrence power…We do not feel any need to increase the range of our missiles and (our perceived enemy) targets are fully within the range of our missiles.”

Iran has vowed to not slow down their weapons development, and with troops entering Syria, they are inching closer and closer to U.S. operations.

U.S. Officials Conclude Iran Deal Violates Federal Law

U.S. Officials Conclude Iran Deal Violates Federal Law

FOX News

Some senior U.S. officials involved in the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal have privately concluded that a key sanctions relief provision – a concession to Iran that will open the doors to tens of billions of dollars in U.S.-backed commerce with the Islamic regime – conflicts with existing federal statutes and cannot be implemented without violating those laws, Fox News has learned.

At issue is a passage tucked away in ancillary paperwork attached to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, as the Iran nuclear deal is formally known. Specifically, Section 5.1.2 of Annex II provides that in exchange for Iranian compliance with the terms of the deal, the U.S. “shall…license non-U.S. entities that are owned or controlled by a U.S. person to engage in activities with Iran that are consistent with this JCPOA.”

In short, this means that foreign subsidiaries of U.S. parent companies will, under certain conditions, be allowed to do business with Iran. The problem is that the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act (ITRA), signed into law by President Obama in August 2012, was explicit in closing the so-called “foreign sub” loophole.

Indeed, ITRA also stipulated, in Section 218, that when it comes to doing business with Iran, foreign subsidiaries of U.S. parent firms shall in all cases be treated exactly the same as U.S. firms: namely, what is prohibited for U.S. parent firms has to be prohibited for foreign subsidiaries, and what is allowed for foreign subsidiaries has to be allowed for U.S. parent firms.

What’s more, ITRA contains language, in Section 605, requiring that the terms spelled out in Section 218 shall remain in effect until the president of the United States certifies two things to Congress: first, that Iran has been removed from the State Department’s list of nations that sponsor terrorism, and second, that Iran has ceased the pursuit, acquisition, and development of weapons of mass destruction.

Additional executive orders and statutes signed by President Obama, such as the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, have reaffirmed that all prior federal statutes relating to sanctions on Iran shall remain in full effect.

Veteran Sgt. Bartlett calls on Senators to reject the Iran deal Obama Is ‘Selling Out The Country’

Sgt. Bartlett calls on Senators to reject the Iran deal Obama Is ‘Selling Out The Country’

Recalling the Iranian bomb that cut through his armored vehicle in Iraq in 2005, “my scars are the direct result of Iran,” says Sgt. Robert Bartlett.

His face was ripped from the temple to the jaw and his gunner’s legs were blown off. He had more than 40 procedures done and he died three times, only to live to speak today.

Bartlett says, “People want to kill us just because we are Americans. I’m the proof of that reality. The lie that we are safe, or don’t need protection from Iran, is a lie.”

“Iran chants in their streets every day, ‘Death to America.’ They are burning the American flag outside their doors. They’re teaching it in their schools. That’s what they want. They want us dead. They don’t want us protecting the world anymore.”

Admitting that he has no idea why President Obama and John Kerry made such a deal, Bartlett admits to making mistakes himself, but “this is the mistake of a lifetime. Their kids won’t survive this mistake.”

Wondering whether they just want a legacy, Bartlett asks, “Do you want your name on it if it kills the country?”

“They are selling out America. The blood that I gave, the scars that I have and my buddy’s death means nothing. We protected them from these people — now they will pay those same people? It makes no sense.”

Asked why he agreed to be featured in this new ad, Bartlett answers, “I swore a long time ago I’d do anything I could for this country. When I got blown up by an Iranian bomb, it took me out of my uniform. The damage is too much.”

Referring to this ad and his public appearances, “God has given me a chance to defend my country again, and it just by using my voice. I’m keeping my promise to my buddy who didn’t get to come home because of the Iranian bomb.”

Retired Generals and Admirals urge Congress to reject Iran nuclear deal

Retired Generals and Admirals urge Congress to reject Iran nuclear deal

The Washington Post

A group of nearly 200 retired generals and admirals sent a letter to Congress on Wednesday urging lawmakers to reject the Iran nuclear agreement, which they say threatens national security.

The letter is the latest in a blizzard of missives petitioning Congress either to support or oppose the agreement with Iran, which would lift sanctions if Iran pared back its nuclear program. Letters have come from ad hoc groupings of rabbis, nuclear scientists, arms-control and nonproliferation experts — and now, retired senior military officers, many of whom have worked in the White House during various administrations dating to the 1980s.

The letter, addressed to Republican and Democratic leaders in the Senate and the House, is a response to one sent last week by three dozen retired senior military officers who support the nuclear deal.

“The agreement will enable Iran to become far more dangerous, render the Mideast still more unstable and introduce new threats to American interests as well as our allies,” the letter states.

The signatories include retired generals and flag officers from every branch of service, including a handful who were involved in some public controversies during their careers.

One is retired Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, who was deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence under President George W. Bush and is now executive vice president of the Family Research Council. He had a history of making controversial speeches, including one in which he characterized U.S. military operations against Islamist extremist organizations as a Christian fight against Satan.

It also was signed by retired Vice Adm. John Poindexter and retired Maj. Gen. Richard Secord, who were involved in the Iran-contra affair in the Reagan administration, in which arms were sold to Iran to fund the contras in Nicaragua.

Many of the signatories served in the White House, under Democratic administrations as well as Republican. The only thing they appear to have in common is that they consider the Iran nuclear deal a threat to U.S. interests in the region and its own national security.

Leon A. “Bud” Edney, a retired admiral who served as vice chief of naval operations, initiated the letter after he read the letter by other retired officers in support of the agreement.

“I looked at the letter they published, and thought it was very weak,” Edney said. “I just don’t agree with it.” He then got the alternative viewpoint rolling through e-mails sent to some of his Navy and Marine friends. They in turn passed it on.

The competing opinions espoused by people within each group reflect the intense lobbying campaign underway even as Congress is in recess. Lawmakers must vote by Sept. 17 whether to “disapprove” the deal. The Republican majority is unanimously opposed to the agreement, so the Obama administration is focusing on ensuring that enough Democrats support it to sustain a presidential veto. They are close to succeeding. So far, 29 senators have announced their support, only five votes short of the 34 needed to block a veto override.

Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney, who was vice commander of U.S. Air Forces in Europe, said he considers the agreement the most dangerous nuclear accord in U.S. history.

“What I don’t like about this is, the number one leading radical Islamic group in the world is the Iranians,” he said. “They are purveyors of radical Islam throughout the region and throughout the world. And we are going to enable them to get nuclear weapons. Why would we do that?”

McInerney said he thinks that most retired general officers do not support the agreement, but he said some did not sign the letter because they feared negative career repercussions.

“I don’t think the retired general officers necessarily speak with one voice,” he said. “We’ve all gone our own way when we retired.”

The opinions expressed in the letter were popular enough that people rushed to sign on, even in the hours before it was sent to Congress. The number of signatories almost doubled between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, copies of the letter showed.

Harry Reid: I will back Iran deal - His support moves the Obama administration nearer to a veto-proof majority

Harry Reid: I will back Iran deal - His support moves the Obama administration nearer to a veto-proof majority

Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran just won the backing of the Senate’s top Democrat.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said Sunday that he “strongly” supports the agreement reached by six world powers and Iran meant to curb Tehran’s nuclear ambitions – vowing that he will do “everything in my power” to defend the deal.

“At the end of the day, there is no doubt in my mind that the threat of Iran gaining a nuclear weapon — the one outcome we all agree is unacceptable — is far more likely if Congress rejects this agreement,” Reid said in a lengthy statement explaining his support for the nuclear deal.

The backing from the Senate’s most powerful Democrat adds even more momentum on Capitol Hill to protect the nuclear agreement. Reid becomes the 27th Senate Democrat to formally endorse the Iran deal, and Obama needs just 34 votes in the Senate to sustain a veto of a resolution of disapproval that is expected in Congress next month.

No Republicans are expected to vote in favor of the nuclear deal. But in recent days, key Democrats have come out in favor of the agreement – including red-state Sens. Joe Donnelly of Indiana and Claire McCaskill of Missouri, and Jewish lawmakers such as Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Reid said he was “cautiously optimistic” that there would be enough Democratic support to sustain any veto from Obama. His counterpart in the House – Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California – has confidently predicted that Obama’s veto won’t be overridden.

Obama's Secret Side Deal To Iran Deal That Allows Iran Use Its Own Experts For Inspections Of Nuke Sites

Obama's Secret Side Deal To Iran Deal That Allows Iran Use Its Own Experts For Inspections Of Nuke Sites

FOX News

Capitol Hill opposition to the Iranian nuclear deal was stoked Wednesday by a bombshell report that Tehran will be allowed to use its own experts to inspect one of the country’s most controversial nuclear sites.

“Allowing the Iranians to inspect their own nuclear sites, particularly a notorious military site, is like allowing the inmates to run the jail,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a presidential candidate, said in a statement.

The Associated Press reported Wednesday that, in an unusual and secret agreement with the U.N. agency that normally carries out such work, Iran can use its own experts and equipment in the search for evidence for activities that it has consistently denied — trying to develop nuclear weapons.

At issue is an investigation of the Parchin nuclear site by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Iran has refused access to Parchin for years and denied any interest in — or work on — nuclear weapons. Based on U.S., Israeli and other intelligence and its own research, the IAEA suspects that the Islamic Republic may have experimented with high-explosive detonators for nuclear arms at that military facility and other weapons-related work

That deal is a side agreement worked out between the IAEA and Iran, separate from the nuclear deal now before Congress for approval. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said the revelation only "reinforces" concerns about the broader agreement.

"Trusting Iran to inspect its own nuclear site and report to the U.N. in an open and transparent way is remarkably naïve and incredibly reckless," he said in a statement. "It is time for the Obama Administration to come clean with the American people and provide all information about these secret side agreements between Iran and the IAEA."

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce, R-Calif., who previously voiced concerns to the State Department over the so-called side deals between Iran and the IAEA, said the inspections need to be done by international inspectors, "Period."

"Congress must now consider whether this unprecedented arrangement will keep Iran from cheating. This is a dangerous farce," he said in a statement.

The Obama administration, though, defended the arrangement without going into detail.

"We are confident in the Agency's technical plans for investigating the possible military dimensions of Iran's former program, issues that in some cases date back more than a decade," National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said. "Just as importantly, the IAEA is comfortable with arrangements, which are unique to the Agency's investigation of Iran's historical activities. When it comes to monitoring Iran's behavior going forward, the IAEA has separately developed the most robust inspection regime ever peacefully negotiated to ensure Iran's current program remains exclusively peaceful...

"Beyond that, we are not going to comment on a purported draft IAEA document."

State Department spokesman John Kirby also said they are "confident in the agency's technical plans for investigating the possible military dimensions of Iran's former program" and the IAEA is "comfortable" with the arrangements as well.

Obama Empowering the Iranian Who Murdered Americans

Obama Empowering the Iranian Who Murdered Americans

One man was responsible for the deaths or injuries of thousands of American soldiers in Iraq. That same man is responsible for sowing sectarian conflict today in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen. And yet, in the nuclear deal with Iran, this man, the commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Quds Force, Major General Qassem Suleimani, will have sanctions lifted against him. Indeed, he will receive a large infusion of cash to wreak more havoc and terror. Having served in Iraq, having experienced first-hand his proxy operations against American forces, and having lost men to Gen. Suleimani’s terror operations, I find this offensive.

Obama claims to be under no illusions about the Iranian regime and its murderous activities. Even in defending the JCPOA, he has admitted that, “we'll still have problems with Iran's sponsorship of terrorism: its funding of proxies like Hezbollah that threaten Israel and threaten the region, the destabilizing activities that they're engaging in, including in places like Yemen.”

Behind all these problems stands one organization, and behind that organization, one man. Within the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Quds Force is responsible for special operations, including training, arming, and giving instructions to the terrorists, insurgents, and proxies that Iran uses to spread chaos across the Middle East. The head of the Quds Force is Major General Qassem Suleimani.

Dumb on Purpose Kerry: Iranian Leaders Chanting “Death To America” Doesn’t Mean They Want To Kill Us

Kerry: Iranian Leaders Chanting “Death To America” Doesn’t Mean They Want To Kill Us

In his testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee to sell the U.S. administration’s deal between Iran and the world’s superpowers, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was pointedly asked, “Is it the policy of the ayatollah, if you can answer for him, that Iran wants to destroy the United States?”

The question, posed by Congressman Lloyd “Ted” Poe (R-Texas) was a reference to the many times the leaders of the Iranian regime have threatened to annihilate the United States.

In response, Kerry said, “I don’t believe they’ve said that. I think they’ve said ‘Death to America,’ in their chants, but I have not seen this specific.”

Poe countered, “Well, I kind of take that to mean that they want us dead. That would seem like that would be their policy. He said that. You don’t think that’s their policy? I’m not mincing words. Do you think it’s their policy to destroy us?”

“I think they have a policy of opposition to us and a great enmity, but I have no specific knowledge of a plan by Iran to actually destroy us,” Kerry answered.

Kerry Lies to Congress About Iran Deal & ‘Additional Protocol’

Kerry Lies to Congress About Iran Deal & ‘Additional Protocol’

Secretary of State John Kerry misled the House Foreign Affairs Committee in his attempt to defend the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday, claiming in his opening statement that Iran had complied with the interim agreement “completely and totally,” and that Iran was “required” by the deal to ratify a key agreement that would prevent it from developing dangerous nuclear technologies in the future.

In fact, Iran violated parts of the interim agreement, and there is no guarantee that it will ratify the Additional Protocol to the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Iran failed to comply with a condition of the interim Joint Plan of Action that required it to convert excess amounts of low-enriched uranium hexafluoride into uranium dioxide. Experts at the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) concluded that Iran had only met 9 percent of what was expected.

The State Department tried to spin that violation. As the ISIS experts noted: “When it became clear that Iran could not meet its commitment to convert the LEU into uranium dioxide, the United States revised its criteria for Iran meeting its obligations.”

Kerry Says ‘Nobody Has Ever Talked About Dismantling’ Iran’s Nuclear Program, But in 2013 Insisted Dismantlement Was The ‘Whole Point’ of Sanctions Regime

Kerry Says ‘Nobody Has Ever Talked About Dismantling’ Iran’s Nuclear Program, But in 2013 Insisted Dismantlement Was The ‘Whole Point’ of Sanctions Regime

Kerry in 2013: 'We knew that it would hopefully help Iran dismantle its nuclear program'

Free Beacon

During Thursday’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the Iran nuclear agreement, Secretary of State John Kerry said the goal of the negotiations was never to dismantle Iran’s entire nuclear program but rather to prevent them from obtaining nuclear weapons, despite saying in 2013 the “whole point” of sanctions was to get Iran to “dismantle its nuclear program.”

“When we began our negotiations, Iran had enough fissile material for 10 to 12 bombs. They had 19,000 centrifuges, up from the 163 that they had back in 2003 when the prior administration was engaged in them on this very topic,” Kerry said Thursday. “So this isn’t a question of giving them what they want. It’s a question of how do you hold their program back. How do you dismantle their weapons program? Not their whole program.

“Let’s understand what was really on the table here. We set out to dismantle their ability to be able to build a nuclear weapon, and we’ve achieved that. Nobody has ever talked about actually dismantling their entire program, because when that was being talked about, that’s when they went from 163 centrifuges to 19,000.”

In 2013, while testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Kerry said the purpose of the sanctions against the rogue regime was to “help Iran dismantle its nuclear program.”

“I don’t think any of us thought we were just imposing these sanctions for the sake of imposing them,” he said. “We did because we knew that it would hopefully help Iran dismantle its nuclear program. That was the whole point of the regime.”

Allen West Explodes Over Iran Deal During Fiery and Emotional Times Square Speech

Allen West Explodes Over Iran Deal During Fiery and Emotional Times Square Speech

Allen West absolutely exploded over the Iran nuclear deal during a fiery speech at a “Stop Iran Deal Rally” in New York City’s Times Square on Wednesday. The Republican strongly criticized President Barack Obama’s leadership on the issue, calling him a “weakling” and “charlatan.”

West asked the crowd of thousands “what message” the United States is sending by negotiating with the “number one state sponsor of terrorism” and a country that is holding “four Americans hostage.”

“No different than the last time we had a weakling in the White House when we had 52 Americans being held hostage,” he added, referring to the Iranian hostage crisis during the Jimmy Carter administration.

Later in his fiery speech, West accused Obama and other administration officials of “surrendering” to the Republic of Iran.

“I want President Obama to know one thing,” West said. “You may say that you have done something that no one else has done. You know why no one else has done it? Because it’s a damn stupid thing you just did.”

He continued: “If people are upset because of what I’m saying, I really don’t care. Because I had a father that stood at World War II…I gave 22 years of my life to make sure that that great beacon of liberty, freedom and democracy continues to stand. And I have a nephew, I have friends that are still serving on the front lines — and my commitment is to the oath that I took on 31, July, 1982, to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

Organizers estimated roughly 10,000 people attended the rally on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.

Susan Rice: American Inspectors Will Not Be Allowed to Visit Iran Nuclear Sites

BLITZER: “Let’s clarify a few points as far as the nuclear deal with Iran is concerned. I take it that all of the IAEA inspection teams, all inspectors who go in will have to be from country that have formal, full diplomatic relations with Iran. As a result, no Americans will directly be involved in any on the ground inspections in Iran — is that right?”

RICE: “Wolf, yes. The IAEA, which is a highly respected international organization, will field an international team of inspectors. And those inspectors will in all likelihood come from IAEA member-states, most of whom have diplomatic relationships with Iran. We of course are a rare exception.”

BLITZER: “No Americans — I want to be precise on this. Sorry for interrupting. No Americans will be on the ground in Iran actually inspecting?”

RICE: “No Americans will be part of the IAEA inspection teams.”

Obama Has Promised to Teach Iran to Thwart Nuke Threats

U.S. Will Teach Iran to Thwart Nuke Threats

Iran: ‘All our goals materialized’ under deal

Obama to America Will Now Train Iran On How To Protect Their Nuke Facilities From Israeli Attacks

The United States and other world powers will help to teach Iran how to thwart and detect threats to its nuclear program, according to the parameters of a deal reached Tuesday to rein in Iran’s contested nuclear program.

Under the terms of a deal that provides Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief, Iran and global powers will cooperate to help teach Iran how to manage its nuclear infrastructure, which will largely remain in tact under the deal.

Senior Iranian officials, including the country’s president, celebrated the deal as a victory for the country. Iran’s state controlled media quoted President Hassan Rouhani as saying that the deal will “remove all sanctions while maintaining [Tehran’s] nuclear program and nuclear progress.”

In what is being viewed as a new development, European countries and potentially the United States agreed to “cooperate with Iran on the implementation of nuclear security guidelines and best practices,” according to a copy of the agreement furnished by both the Russians and Iranians.

This will include “training courses and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to prevent, protect and respond to nuclear security threats to nuclear facilities and systems as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems,” according to the text.

Additional “training and workshops” would work to “strengthen Iran’s ability to protect against, and respond to nuclear security threats, including sabotage, as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems,” the text states.

Iran Fines U.S. Administration $50 Billion

An Iranian court on Monday issued a ruling fining the United States $50 billion for purported damages against the Islamic Republic and its citizens, according to an announcement by Iran’s Judiciary.

Iran claims that the United States is guilty of inflicting “heavy loss and damage” on the country, as well as “killing the Iranian nationals by assisting their enemies,” such as former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, according to Iran’s state-controlled Fars News Agency.

The ruling charges “the U.S. administration with the payment of a total 50-billion-dollar fine for the losses it has incurred on real and legal entities,” according to Fars.

A spokesman for Iran’s Judiciary was quoted as saying during a press conference in Tehran that “those who had filed a lawsuit against the U.S., their complaints have been processed.”

Nuclear Talks Resume, Iran Refuses Inspection of Military Sites

Nuclear Talks Resume, Iran Refuses Inspection of Military Sites

Iran: "Inspection and access to non-nuclear and military sites will not be accepted."

Reuters reports that Iran and the six world powers resumed negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program yesterday, seeking to iron out their remaining differences before the June 30 deadline.

A framework accord had been reached between Iran, the United States, France, Britain,Germany, Russia and China on April 2, but several issues remain to be resolved, among them monitoring and verification measures and access for U.N. nuclear inspectors to Iranian military sites – which Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Iran’s top military commanders flatly refuse to allow.

As Iranian deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi put it,

Inspection and access to non-nuclear and military sites will not be accepted by Iran. Controlled and managed access does not mean inspection. We are trying to set some rules for managed access to non-nuclear sites.

France said last week it would block any nuclear settlement that does not allow inspectors access to all installations, including military sites.

The Islamic Republic denies that it has any ambition to develop a nuclear arms capability.

US aircraft carrier sent to block Iranian shipments to Yemen

US aircraft carrier sent to block Iranian shipments to Yemen...total of 9 of our ships there according to this video.

FOX News

A U.S. aircraft carrier has been dispatched to waters off Yemen to join other American ships prepared to block any Iranian shipments to the Houthi rebels fighting in Yemen.

The U.S. Navy has been beefing up its presence in the Gulf of Aden and the southern Arabian Sea amid reports that a convoy of about eight Iranian ships is heading toward Yemen and possibly carrying arms for the Houthis.

A Navy official confirmed to Fox News that the USS Theodore Roosevelt -- along with her escort ship, the USS Normandy, a guided-missile cruiser -- left the Persian Gulf on Sunday en route for the Arabian Sea, to help enforce the blockade.

Tensions are rising in the region even as the U.S. and five other world powers scramble to strike a final deal with Iran on its nuclear program by the end of June. The fighting in Yemen, where U.S. ally Saudi Arabia is leading a coalition against the Iran-backed rebels, is complicating matters.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, without commenting specifically on any Navy movements, said the U.S. has concerns about Iran's "continued support" for the Houthis.

There are now about nine U.S. Navy ships in the region, including cruisers and destroyers carrying teams that can board and search other vessels, as well as three support ships.

The U.S. Navy generally conducts consensual boardings of ships when needed, including to combat piracy around Africa and the region. So far, however, U.S. naval personnel have not boarded any Iranian vessels since the Yemen conflict began.

U.S. Fumbles Iranian Weapons Shipment: Obama apparently took action to keep the UN from finding out about them

U.S. Fumbles Iranian Weapons Shipment

Reports have surfaced indicating that during the ongoing negotiations with Iran regarding their nuclear program, they received multiple shipments of advanced missile components and technology from North Korea.

This would be in direct violation of existing UN sanctions.

However, that’s not the worst of it. The reports also indicate that the U.S. was not only aware of the shipments, but apparently took action to keep the UN from finding out about them.

According to one report, “U.S. President Obama was given details during his “daily intelligence briefing…. but the information was hidden from the UN by the White House so it would not take action on the sanctions violations.”

Reports such as this provide suggest that President Obama that protecting the security of the United States is nowhere to be found on his list of daily activities.

For years Iran has referred to the U.S. as the “Great Satan.” While celebrating “Army Day”, there were trucks carrying banners, and shouts from huge crowds which included “death to Israel, death to America.”

Iran is the world’s foremost sponsor of terrorism. Their agenda is to export their fundamentalist Islamic revolution throughout the Middle East, and the rest of the globe. Their actions, whether covert, diplomatic, military, or economic, are all designed to counter American interests.

Yet, in spite of Iran’s constant vilification, the Obama administration has reacted by backing away from sanctions, and releasing huge amounts of frozen Iranian assets. Some reports suggest as much as $2.5 billion has been released.

As for the reports about North Korean shipments to Iran which are a direct violation of UN sanctions, this is not a matter that should be ignored. If said reports are true the U.S. has in essence become the ‘wing man’ for Iran. In other words the U.S. acted to protect Iran’s best interest.

This is precisely the opposite of the primary duty of someone in the position of president. Mr. Obama has not only abrogated his duty as commander-in-chief, he has acted in a manner which requires public outcry.

Iran marks Army Day with cries of ‘Death to Israel' and ' Death To America'

Times of Israel

Iran on Saturday marked Army Day with a military parade featuring new weapons systems, as well as a truck carrying a massive banner reading “Death to Israel.”

A televised broadcast of the parade was punctuated by repeated cries of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”

“If Israel makes a mistake,” the announcer on Iran television said during the broadcast, as heavy trucks carrying armored personnel carriers rolled past, “those in Tel Aviv and Haifa will not sleep at night, not one person.”

Among the weapons systems paraded past dignitaries was a domestically produced version of the Russian S-300 anti-aircraft missile, the Bavar 373.

Israel fears the S-300s would complicate any military intervention as a last resort to thwart Iran’s nuclear drive. It also fears Iran could supply the missile defense systems to Syria or Hezbollah, diluting Israel’s air supremacy over Syria and Lebanon.

Iranian Armed Forces Chief Vows To Crush America Day Before Nuke Deal Deadline

The General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces underscored that Iran’s military troops are fully prepared to defend the country against enemies’ threats and give a firm response to any potential foreign aggressor.

“The Armed Forces will give a firm and remorsing response to any practical threat by the enemies, specially the US and the Zionist regime, in proportion to the level and type of the hostile attempts and within the framework of threat-against-threat,” the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces said in a statement on the occasion of the Islamic Republic Day (April1).

It noted that the Iranian Armed Forces by relying on the valuable experiences of the past 37 years in confrontation with the enemies of the Islamic Revolution and the country are ready to defend the values and ideals of the Islamic ruling system.

The statement pointed to the Islamic establishment’s achievements for the human community, and said, “37 years after the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, the nations and communities have waken up and the Islamic awakening movement and flags of right-seeking and freedom-seeking have opened new horizons for the future of humanity; a future that will pave the way for the salvation of the nations from backwardness as well as political, economic and cultural captivity of the oppressing powers …”

Obama To Give Key Iranian Demands as Nuke Deal Comes Together

Obama to give Key Iranian Demands as Nuke Deal Comes Together

Obama is giving in to Iranian demands about the scope of its nuclear program as negotiators work to finalize a framework agreement in the coming days, according to sources familiar with the administration’s position in the negotiations.

U.S. negotiators are said to have given up ground on demands that Iran be forced to disclose the full range of its nuclear activities at the outset of a nuclear deal, a concession experts say would gut the verification the Obama administration has vowed would stand as the crux of a deal with Iran.

Until recently, the Obama administration had maintained that it would guarantee oversight on Tehran’s program well into the future, and that it would take the necessary steps to ensure that oversight would be effective. The issue has now emerged as a key sticking point in the talks.

Concern from sources familiar with U.S. concessions in the talks comes amid reports that Iran could be permitted to continue running nuclear centrifuges at an underground site once suspected of housing illicit activities.

This type of concession would allow Iran to continue work related to its nuclear weapons program, even under the eye of international inspectors. If Iran removes inspectors—as it has in the past—it would be left with a nuclear infrastructure immune from a strike by Western forces.

“Once again, in the face of Iran’s intransigence, the U.S. is leading an effort to cave even more toward Iran—this time by whitewashing Tehran’s decades of lying about nuclear weapons work and current lack of cooperation with the [International Atomic Energy Agency],” said one Western source briefed on the talks but who was not permitted to speak on record.

With the White House pressing to finalize a deal, U.S. diplomats have moved further away from their demands that Iran be subjected to oversight over its nuclear infrastructure.

“Instead of ensuring that Iran answers all the outstanding questions about the past and current military dimensions of their nuclear work in order to obtain sanctions relief, the U.S. is now revising down what they need to do,” said the source. “That is a terrible mistake—if we don’t have a baseline to judge their past work, we can’t tell if they are cheating in the future, and if they won’t answer now, before getting rewarded, why would they come clean in the future?”

The United States is now willing to let Iran keep many of its most controversial military sites closed to inspectors until international sanctions pressure has been lifted, according to sources.

Iran stalls probe into nuclear weapons research

Iran stalls probe into nuclear weapons research

Iran is failing to address suspicions it may have worked on designing an atomic bomb, according to the latest report by a U.N. watchdog, potentially complicating efforts by world powers to reach a deal with Tehran on its nuclear program.

The report by the International Atomic Energy Agency said Tehran had still not provided information it was due to produce more than two months ago to help advance a long-running IAEA inquiry into suspected nuclear weapons research.

The confidential document was issued to IAEA member states less than three weeks before the Nov. 24 deadline by which Iran and six global powers are seeking to end a decade-old standoff over the Islamic Republic’s atomic activities.

“Iran has not provided any explanations that enable the agency to clarify the outstanding practical measures,” it said.

Iran's Khamenei calls ‘Death to America’ as Kerry hails progress on nuke deal

Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for “Death to America” on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity” for a nuclear deal and a better future, and as US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.

Khamenei told a crowd in Tehran that Iran would not capitulate to Western demands. When the crowd started shouting, “Death to America,” the ayatollah responded: “Of course yes, death to America, because America is the original source of this pressure.

“They insist on putting pressure on our dear people’s economy,” he said, referring to economic sanctions aimed at halting Iran’s nuclear program. “What is their goal? Their goal is to put the people against the system,” he said. “The politics of America is to create insecurity,” he added, referring both to US pressure on Iran and elsewhere in the region.

Saudi Prince Warns Iran Deal Could Spark Mideast Nuclear Race

Saudi Prince Warns Iran Deal Could Spark Mideast Nuclear Race

A senior member of the Saudi royal family said Monday that whatever arrangement U.S.-led negotiators reach with Iran over its nuclear program, Saudi Arabia would want to enjoy the same benefits.

That, in turn, could deteriorate into a regional nuclear race, Prince Turki al-Faisal told the BBC.

“I’ve always said whatever comes out of these talks, we will want the same,” said the prince, who previously served as Saudi Arabia’s intelligence chief and as ambassador to the U.S.

“So if Iran has the ability to enrich uranium to whatever level, it’s not just Saudi Arabia that’s going to ask for that,” Turki told the BBC.

“The whole world will be an open door to go that route without any inhibition, and that’s my main objection to this P5+1 [negotiation] process,” he added.

Reuters noted that while Turki is no longer serving in government, “his comments are widely understood to reflect the thinking at senior levels of the Al Saud ruling family.”

The BBC reported that Saudi Arabia last week signed a cooperation agreement with South Korea to study the possibility of building two nuclear plants in the Persian Gulf country.

The prince’s warning came on the heels of editorials published in the Saudi media lambasting President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry over their “naivete” about the potential deleterious outcome of the deal currently being discussed with Iran, which according to reports would not demand an outright stop to its nuclear development.

Tariq Al-Homayed wrote in the London-based Saudi daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat last week that Obama was “leading the entire region into real disaster.”

“I believe that Netanyahu’s conduct will serve our interests, the people of the Gulf, much more than the foolish behavior of one of the worst American presidents,” Ahmad Al-Faraj wrote in the pro-government Saudi daily Al-Jazirah, offering rare Saudi praise for the Israeli prime minister.

Kerry was in Riyadh earlier this month to try to allay Saudi fears of the emerging nuclear deal with Iran.

Based on the prince’s remarks, Kerry’s mission did not succeed in placating the Persian Gulf kingdom which is also concerned about the spread of Iranian influence in neighboring states.

“Iran is already a disruptive player in various scenes in the Arab world, whether it’s Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Palestine or Bahrain,” Turki said. “So ending fear of developing weapons of mass destruction is not going to be the end of the troubles we’re having with Iran.”

Sen. Cotton and 46 Colleagues Send Open Letter to Iran on Nuke Deal - Good !!!

Sen. Cotton and 46 Colleagues Send Open Letter to Iran on Nuke Deal

FOX News

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) appeared on "Fox and Friends" this morning to discuss the open letter he and 46 of his Republican colleagues in the Senate are sending today to Iranian leaders about the ongoing nuclear negotiations between their country and the U.S.

"Many Iran experts say that Iran's leaders don't understand our Constitution," Cotton said. "So they need to understand that under our Constitution, Congress plays a very important role of approving international agreements. And any deal that isn't approved by the Congress won't be accepted by the Congress, now or in the future."

Cotton said he hopes more Republicans, Democrats and possible presidential candidates also sign the letter.

"We already have four Senators on the letter who are thinking about running for president," Cotton revealed. "Rick Perry said last week that he wouldn't honor a deal that doesn't go through Congress. I've spoken privately with other presidential candidates who might join us. And for that matter, I would encourage Hillary Clinton to join us in saying that Congress must approve any nuclear deal with Iran."

"Many Senate Democrats have been strong on this issue. They think that we need to approve any nuclear deal with Iran, but the White House is putting a lot of pressure on Senate Democrats to hold their fire," Cotton explained.

Cotton said they don't know yet what the final terms of the proposed agreement are, but he does know that National Security Advisor Susan Rice has already conceded that Iran will have a robust nuclear enrichment capability.

Cotton added that the president has said that this deal will have a sunset clause, perhaps as soon as ten years.

"Those two terms alone make this deal unacceptable, dangerous to the United States and dangerous to the world," Cotton stated.

You can read the open letter below

An Open Letter to the Leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran:

It has come to our attention while observing your nuclear negotiations with our government that you may not fully understand our constitutional system. Thus, we are writing to bring to your attention two features of our Constitution—the power to make binding international agreements and the different character of federal offices—which you should seriously consider as negotiations progress.

First, under our Constitution, while the president negotiates international agreements, Congress plays the significant role of ratifying them. In the case of a treaty, the Senate must ratify it by a two-thirds vote. A so-called congressional-executive agreement requires a majority vote in both the House and the Senate (which, because of procedural rules, effectively means a three-fifths vote in the Senate). Anything not approved by Congress is a mere executive agreement.

Second, the offices of our Constitution have different characteristics. For example, the president may serve only two 4-year terms, whereas senators may serve an unlimited number of 6-year terms. As applied today, for instance, President Obama will leave office in January 2017, while most of us will remain in office well beyond then—perhaps decades.

What these two constitutional provisions mean is that we will consider any agreement regarding your nuclear-weapons program that is not approved by the Congress as nothing more than an executive agreement between President Obama and Ayatollah Khamenei. The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.

We hope this letter enriches your knowledge of our constitutional system and promotes mutual understanding and clarity as nuclear negotiations progress.

Obama: I'll Make Case to American People After Iran Deal Is Made

Obama: I'll Make Case to American People After Iran Deal Is Made

Obama will wait until after a nuclear deal with Iran is made to make the case to the American people that it’s the right thing to do. He made the comment today after being asked about this letter from nearly 50 U.S. senators to Iran, which stated, “The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.”

A member of the press asked Obama, “Can you comment on the Republican letter to Iran? Can you comment on that?”

“I think it’s somewhat ironic to see some members of Congress wanting to make common cause with the hardliners in Iran. It’s an unusual coalition,” Obama told the reporter.

“I think what we’re going to focus on right now is actually seeing whether we can get a deal or not. And once we do — if we do — then we’ll be able to make the case to the American people, and I’m confident we’ll be able to implement it.”

Iran Unveils Chilling New Weapon Days After Netanyahu’s Warning

Iran Unveils Chilling New Weapon Days After Netanyahu’s Warning.....Photo at LINK

Takes discussing missiles off the table of nuclear negotiations.

The missile was unveiled only a few days after Netanyahu spoke about Iran’s missile program, saying that it posed a threat not just to Israel, but also eventually the U.S.

He remarked that “Iran’s Intercontinental Ballistic Missile program is not part of the deal, and so far, Iran refuses to even put it on the negotiating table.

Netanyahu went on to say:

Well, Iran could have the means to deliver that nuclear arsenal to the far-reach corners of the earth, including to every part of the United States.

According to Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan, the new missile “enjoys different characteristics in terms of range and pinpoint accuracy in comparison with the previous products.” It can also evade radar.

The general noted that a more advanced version of the missile would be available later this month that would increase the aim, destructive power, and precision of the weapon.

Not only that, but the general said that two other long-range ballistic missiles, the Qadr and Qiam, have been given in large quantities to the aerospace division of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps.

Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi, Iran’s nuclear negotiator, refuses to back down on the missiles, saying that they are “completely defensive”:

Iran’s missile program has a completely defensive nature and the Islamic Republic of Iran in no way views the defensive matters of the country negotiable and we are not ready to discuss this matter with any foreigner.

He added, “Therefore, never in the framework of the nuclear talks with the P5+1, whether in the past or currently, has ​Iran given permission to plan or negotiate the country’s defensive and military abilities, and this permission will not be given in the future.”

New Docs Reveal Osama bin Laden's Secret Ties With Iran

New Docs Reveal Osama bin Laden's Secret Ties With Iran

More than 1 million documents and files were captured by the Navy Seals who raided bin Laden’s safe house in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May 2011. One year later, in May 2012, the Obama administration released just 17 of them.

While there is some overlap between the files introduced as evidence in Brooklyn and those that were previously made public in 2012, much of what is in the trial exhibits had never been made public before.

The files do not support the view, promoted by some in the Obama administration, that bin Laden was in “comfortable retirement,” “sidelined,” or “a lion in winter” in the months leading up to his death. On the contrary, bin Laden is asked to give his order on a host of issues, ranging from the handling of money to the movement of terrorist operatives.

Some of the key revelations in the newly-released bin Laden files relate to al Qaeda’s dealings with Iran and presence in Afghanistan.

A top al Qaeda operative asked bin Laden for permission to relocate to Iran in June 2010 as he plotted attacks around the world. That operative, Yunis al Mauritani, was a senior member of al Qaeda’s so-called “external operations” team, and plotted to launch Mumbai-style attacks in Europe…

…Although Iran and al Qaeda have had significant differences, there is much intelligence showing that the two continue to collude.

During President Obama’s administration, the Treasury and State Departments have repeatedly exposed the formerly “secret deal” between the Iranian regime and al Qaeda that allows the terrorist organization to shuttle operatives around the globe. Some of those operatives included Yunis al Mauritani’s men.

The June 2010 memo to bin Laden indicates that al Qaeda had a significant presence in Afghanistan at the time.

Muslim Obama Administration to Award Iranian Regime $11.9 Billion Through June

Obama Administration to Award Iranian Regime $11.9 Billion Through June

The Iranian regime will receive $20 billion in sanctions relief, not $7 billion as was originally reported.

This week the Obama administration paid the regime $490 million in cash assets. A total of $11.9 billion will be released to Iran when the talks end in June.

The Iranian regime will receive $20 billion in sanctions relief, not $7 billion as was originally reported.

The Washington Free Beacon

The Obama administration on Wednesday paid $490 million in cash assets to Iran and will have released a total of $11.9 billion to the Islamic Republic by the time nuclear talks are scheduled to end in June, according to figures provided by the State Department.

Today’s $490 million release, the third such payment of this amount since Dec. 10, was agreed to by the Obama administration under the parameters of another extension in negotiations over Tehran’s contested nuclear program that was inked in November.

Iran will receive a total of $4.9 billion in unfrozen cash assets via 10 separate payments by the United States through June 22, when talks with Iran are scheduled to end with a final agreement aimed at curbing the country’s nuclear work, according to a State Department official.

Iran received $4.2 billion in similar payments under the 2013 interim agreement with the United States and was then given another $2.8 billion by the Obama administration last year in a bid to keep Iran committed to the talks through November, when negotiators parted ways without reaching an agreement.

The Iranian regime announced the construction of two new nuclear reactors this week.

Obama Regime: Our Goal Is Not To Eliminate Iran’s Nuclear Weapons Program

A senior official in the State Department admitted on Wednesday that the Obama administration’s goal during negotiations with Iran is delaying the regime’s development of nuclear weapons rather than shutting down the Islamic Republic’s contested nuclear program.

Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken acknowledged during a tense exchange with senators on Capitol Hill a deal being sought by the Obama administration that would constrain its nuclear breakout capability without eliminating its nuclear program.

Blinken also floated the possibility of extending nuclear talks past the June deadline should additional time be needed to finalize details of a possible deal with Iran.

Leading senators on both sides of the aisle grilled Blinken and other officials in the administration over Iran’s nuclear program, which has continued despite restrictions imposed under an interim nuclear agreement made in November 2013.

Obama To Give Iran Another $2.8 Billion

Obama to Give Iran Another $2.8 Billion

The United States will give Iran access to another $2.8 billion over the next several months and appears to have conceded to Iran’s demand that it be permitted to domestically enrich uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon, according to senior Obama administration officials.

In exchange for agreeing over the weekend to extend nuclear talks until late November, Iran will be given another $2.8 billion in unfrozen assets, the White House told reporters over the weekend, after President Barack Obama decided to extend the talks past their July 20 deadline.

The United States already returned to Iran $4.2 billion in unfrozen oil assetsduring the past six months of the interim nuclear deal and has now agreed to provide another $2.8 billion in exchange for an extension in the negotiations.

White House officials also appeared to admit that U.S. negotiators have told Tehran that they will allow it to preserve some of its domestic enrichment capabilities, something that Congress has opposed.

Iran Celebrates Hamas Using Their Rockets To Attack Israeli Civilians

Iran Celebrates Hamas Using Their Rockets To Attack Israeli Civilians

Iranian military leaders on Monday celebrated Hamas’ use of advanced long-range rockets that were supplied to the terror group by the Iranian regime.

Iran’s role in arming Hamas militants with more sophisticated artillery capable of reaching deep into Israel has fueled concerns among lawmakers that U.S. negotiators are not doing enough to address Iran’s support for terror during ongoing nuclear discussions.

Israeli and United Nations officials have confirmed that Hamas is firing rockets on civilians provided to it by Iran.

A Senior Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) general praised Hamas’ rocket attacks on Monday and warned that between Hamas and other Iranian-backed terror groups, “all Zionists are within the range of the resistance’s missiles.”

“The defense capacity and capabilities of the Islamic resistance and Hamas forces has left no safe place for the Zionists in the occupied territories,” General Ramezan Sharif, head of the IRGC’s public relations department, said in public remarks Monday.

Because of Obama.....Iran Sends Warships to US Atlantic Coast

Iran Sends Warships to US Coast

he Iranian regime dispatched several warships recently to the Atlantic Ocean near the US coast.


Iranian warships dispatched to the Atlantic Ocean will travel close to U.S. maritime borders for the first time, a senior Iranian naval commander said Saturday.

The commander of Iran’s Northern Navy Fleet, Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad, said the vessels have already entered the Atlantic Ocean via waters near South Africa, the official IRNA news agency reported.

The fleet, consisting of a destroyer and a helicopter-carrying supply ship, began its voyage last month from the southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas. The ships, carrying some 30 navy academy cadets for training along with their regular crews, are on a three-month mission.

The voyage comes amid an ongoing push by Iran to demonstrate its ability to project power across the Middle East and beyond.

IRNA quoted Haddad as saying the fleet is approaching U.S. maritime borders for the first time. The Islamic Republic considers the move as a response to U.S. naval deployments near its own coastlines. The U.S. Navy's 5th fleet is based in Bahrain, just across the Persian Gulf.

Iranian Foreign Minister on Obama Nuke Deal: ‘We Did Not Agree to Dismantle Anything’

Iranian Foreign Minister n Obama Nuke Deal: ‘We Did Not Agree to Dismantle Anything’

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters today the regime did not agree to dismantle anything in the recent nuclear deal.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif insisted Wednesday that the Obama administration mischaracterizes concessions by his side in the six-month nuclear deal with Iran, telling CNN in an exclusive interview that “we did not agree to dismantle anything.”

Zarif told CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto that terminology used by the White House to describe the agreement differed from the text agreed to by Iran and the other countries in the talks — the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany.

“The White House version both underplays the concessions and overplays Iranian commitments” under the agreement that took effect Monday, Zarif said in Davos, Switzerland, where he was attending the World Economic Forum.

As part of the deal, Iran was required to dilute its stockpile of uranium that had been enriched to 20%, well above the 5% level needed for power generation but still below the level for developing a nuclear weapon.

In addition, the deal mandated that Iran halt all enrichment above 5% and “dismantle the technical connections required to enrich above 5%,” according to a White House fact sheet issued in November after the initial agreement was reached.

Zarif accused the Obama administration of creating a false impression with such language.

Obama To Give Iran $550 Million of Blocked $4.2 Billion On February 1st, Regular Installments To Follow…


Iran would receive the first $550 million installment of a total of $4.2 billion in previously blocked overseas funds on or about February 1, a senior U.S. official said on Sunday.

Under a November 24 nuclear agreement, six major powers agreed to give Iran access to $4.2 billion in revenues blocked overseas if it carries out the deal, which offers sanctions relief in exchange for steps to curb the Iranian nuclear program.

Some payments are contingent on Iran diluting its stockpile of 20 percent enriched uranium to no more than 5 percent enriched uranium. The U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, described the payment schedule as follows:

Feb 1 – $550 million (NOTE: February 1 is a Saturday, so this payment may need to happen on February 3);

March 1 – $450 million (payment for half of dilution);

March 7 – $550 million;

April 10 – $550 million;

April 15 – $450 million (payment for completion of dilution);

May 14 – $550 million;

June 17 – $550 million;

July 20 – $550 million (NOTE: July 20 is a Sunday, so this payment may need to happen on July 21).

Iran Publicly Refuses To Recognize Israel At The U.N.

Iran Publicly Refuses To Recognize Israel At The U.N.

Iran publicly refused to recognize “the Israeli regime” during a full meeting on Thursday of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

The move appeared to stun not a single onlooker at the United Nations, but prompted a sharp response from Israel’s ambassador to the U.N.

During the opening moments of the 68th UNGA’s 60th plenary meeting, Iran’s representative took the floor to reiterate her country’s distaste for the Jewish state.

The UNGA meeting was held to mark a procedural—and typically uneventful—vote in which nations meet to approve the credentials of various U.N. member states.

While Iran, like every other nation, voted in favor of the measure, its representative sought to explain that its support should not be interpreted as recognition of Israel.

“We would like to reiterate my government’s position that our support for this document should be in no way be considered as the recognition of the Israeli regime,” Iran’s representative said. “I wish my statement in this regard to be recorded and registered in the final recording of this meeting.”

Obama Omitting Details About Iran Deal - The TRUTH is Iranian enrichment activity will continue indefinitely

'Washington Post': White House omitting facts about Iran nuclear deal

The Jerusalem Post

Iran claims that their right to enrichment has now been acknowledged. U.S. officials claimed this wasn’t so.

The WaPo dissection of the agreement actually shows that Iran is right, that the U.S. through this agreement, has conceded the right.

The White House is omitting key facts about the nuclear deal signed with Iran, which makes a number of important concessions to the Islamic Republic, The Washington Post argued in its editorial Friday.

Sunday’s accord is a six-month agreement with an option to extend, meant to limit the Iranian nuclear program as the P5+1 – the US, UK, Russia, China, France and Germany – try to hammer out a comprehensive accord with Iran. In return, Iran received some sanctions relief.

While Iran has agreed to cap uranium enrichment and delay completion of the Arak heavy-water reactor during the interim, six-month negotiation period, the text of the deal says that the final agreement will involve “a mutually defined enrichment program with mutually agreed parameters.”

In other words, according to the Post’s Editorial Board, “the United States and its partners have already agreed that Iranian enrichment activity will continue indefinitely. In contrast, a long-standing US demand that an underground enrichment facility be closed is not mentioned.”

Iranian Official: America Cannot Be Trusted And Israel Must Be Wiped Off The Face Of The Earth

In the wake of news that Israel will send a delegation to Washington, D.C. to influence the Obama administration’s international negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program, the Islamic Republic is stepping up its attacks on the Jewish state.

“This vicious temperament of dogs and pigs is you (Israel),” said Ayatollah Mohammad Imami Kashani, a member of the Assembly of Experts, the body that appoints the supreme leader, at Tehran’s interim Friday prayer. “The Quran has marked on your foreheads that you will be humiliated. The Zionist officials are like animals, and truly as rogue thugs they do whatever they want, killing people, creating bloodshed and destroying whatever they want.”

Kashani said at this week’s Friday prayers sermon in Tehran that whenever Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears on television, “all of the world hates you. You are hated, humiliated and despicable and,” the ayatollah added in a putrid insult to make to a Jew, “have been immersed in the flesh of rabid dogs and pigs.”

Kashani also had harsh words for the Obama administration: “Nations of the world are the enemies of the Zionists and (America’s support of Israel) will have you share the misery of the Zionists.”

Chairman of Iran’s Parliamentary Committee for Foreign Policy: “We Have Emerged Victorious Heroes over the West”

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of the Iranian Parliamentary Committee for Foreign Policy and National Security, bragged to Al-Anon TV this week:

“We have emerged victorious over the West.”

MEMRI has the transcript:

Alaeddin Boroujerdi: [The nuclear deal] is very important, because by now, the Islamic Republic controls all aspects of nuclear science, from A-Z, from the very beginning all the way to uranium enrichment. This is why the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution talked about heroic flexibility. After ten years, we have emerged victorious over the West.

They wanted to prevent us from acquiring nuclear technology, but we have reached that point, having sacrificed martyrs, and having persevered on that path, enduring an economic siege. Now we have emerged victorious heroes. It was in our best interest to sign this agreement.

The Americans reached the conclusion that it would be futile to continue with their policy of confronting the Islamic Republic – a policy that was leading them nowhere. They wanted to prevent Iran from enriching uranium, but we have attained this technology and we are currently using it. Therefore, the Americans changed their policy from confronting Islamic Iran to dealing with it.

We have now entered a new stage. We expect good results. The nuclear dossier will be removed from the agenda of the UN Security Council, and they will officially acknowledge… In fact, they have acknowledged Iran’s uranium enrichment.

In addition, the economic siege on the Islamic Republic will be lifted.

Obama Signals Iran He Will Accept Nuclear Program if they Won’t Use it to Develop Weapons

Obama Signals Iran He Will Accept Nuclear Program if they Won’t Use it to Develop Weapons


U.S. President Barack Obama has recently passed a message to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Washington Post reported on Friday, which signaled that the United States would agree to an Iranian civilian nuclear program if they proved they were not developing a nuclear bomb.

According to David Ignatius, the Washington Post’s senior columnist specializing in intelligence matters, Obama passed Khamenei the message through Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who visited Tehran this week.

Obama reportedly signaled Khamenei that the U.S. would be prepared to accept a civilian nuclear program in Iran, should the Iranian leader take steps that would support his public declarations in February, in which he said that Iran “would never develop nuclear weapons.” The U.S., Obama also wrote, would also expect Iranian leaders to prove that Tehran does not have a military nuclear program.

Obama met with Erdogan at the nuclear summit in South Korea for two hours and asked him to pass on the message to Khamenei. Obama told Erdogan that the Iranians must understand that time is running out on a solution for the Tehran nuclear problem and that they must take advantage of the negotiations that will begin with the six world powers on April 13.

According to Ignatius, Obama did not give details as to whether Iran would be allowed to continue enriching uranium on its soil while developing its civilian nuclear program.

Erdogan told Obama that he will transfer the message, and the U.S. administration believes that he did so during the meeting he held with Khamenei in Tehran this week.

Since Obama entered the White House, an alliance was formed between him and Erdogan. The Turkish prime minister is the Muslim leader that is most closely associated with the U.S. president.

Negotiations between Iran and the six world powers are due to begin on April 13, but a location has yet been scheduled.

Iran Navy Tests Surface-to-Air Missile in Drill Near Strait of Hormuz

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's navy said Sunday it test-fired an advanced surface-to-air missile during a drill in international waters near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, the passageway for one-sixth of the world's oil supply.

Iran's state TV said the missile, named Mehrab, or Altar, is designed to evade radar and was developed by Iranian scientists. The report said the missile was tested Sunday but provided no further details.

A leading Iranian lawmaker said the sea maneuvers serve as practice for closing the Strait of Hormuz if the West blocks Iran's oil sales. After top Iranian officials made the same threat a week ago, military commanders emphasized that Iran has no intention of blocking the waterway now.

The exercise covers a 1,250-mile (2,000-kilometer) stretch of water beyond the Strait of Hormuz, including parts of the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden.

The drill, which could bring Iranian ships into proximity with U.S. Navy vessels that operate in the same area, is Iran's latest show of strength in the face of mounting international criticism over its nuclear program. The West fears Iran's program aims to develop atomic weapons — a charge Tehran denies, insisting it's for peaceful purposes only.

The 10-day exercise drew significant attention after the Iranian warnings about closing the strait. Iranian military officials later appeared to back away from that threat.

CNN) -- The U.S. Navy said Iran's threat to block the strategically and economically important Strait of Hormuz is unacceptable.

"The free flow of goods and services through the Strait of Hormuz is vital to regional and global prosperity," Navy 5th Fleet in Bahrain spokeswoman Cmdr. Amy Derrick Frost told reporters on Wednesday.

"Anyone who threatens to disrupt freedom of navigation in an international strait is clearly outside the community of nations; any disruption will not be tolerated."

The 34-mile-wide shipping channel leads in and out of the Persian Gulf between Iran and Oman. It is strategically important because tankers carrying oil travel through it.


Krauthammer: "Iran could be making a huge mistake here...If the bluff is called...The United States Navy will reopen the Straits and it could destroy the Iranian Navy"


Iran Rejects U.S. Warning on Strait of Hormuz

CBS News

TEHRAN, Iran - Iran continued to suggest it may block the Strait of Hormuz in response to greater international pressure over its nuclear program, rejecting a U.S. warning that any attempt to choke off the key oil supply route would not be tolerated.

"The U.S. is not in a position" to affect Iran's decisions, Gen. Hossein Salami, the acting commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guard told the semi-official Fars news agency Thursday. "Iran does not ask permission to implement its own defensive strategies."

Iran had previously threatened the close the strait if Washington imposes sanctions targeting Iran's crude exports. On Wednesday, Lt. Rebecca Rebarich, a spokeswoman for the Bahrain-based U.S. 5th Fleet, said the Navy was "always ready to counter malevolent actions to ensure freedom of navigation."

Meanwhile, official IRNA news agency reported an Iranian surveillance plane has recorded video and photographed a U.S. aircraft carrier during Iran's ongoing navy drill near a strategic waterway in the Persian Gulf.

The report did not provide details and it was unclear what information the Iranian military could gleam from such footage. But the announcement is an indication Iran is seeking to cast its navy as having a powerful role in the region's waters.

IRNA quoted Iran's navy chief, Adm. Habibollah Sayyari, as saying the action shows that Iran has "control over the moves by foreign forces" in the area where Tehran is holding a 10-day military exercise.

"An Iranian vessel and surveillance plane have tracked, filmed and photographed a U.S. aircraft carrier as it was entering the Gulf of Oman from the Persian Gulf," Sayyari said.

He added that the "foreign fleet will be warned by Iranian forces if it enters the area of the drill."

Former member of the US House of Representatives Cynthia Anne McKinney said she is truly ashamed of her country’s policies.

Addressing an international conference dubbed ‘International Coalition against Terrorism for Fair Peace’ here in Tehran on Saturday, the former US House member urged Washington to avoid imposing its will on the world nations through the use of force, violence and weapons.

“As an American, I am upset with the policies of my country, but the measures adopted by the first Afro-American president of the United States has ashamed us all,” she said.

“If there is no truth, there won’t be any justice, and today the US policies are rooted in lies, injustice and war,” she continued.

Iran To Ban Pet Dogs, Un-Islamic Under Sharia ~ Man’s best friend, mortal enemy to Muslims

Iran to ban pet dogs, un-Islamic under sharia

The Latest Enemies of Iran: Dogs and Their Owners

For much of the past decade, the Iranian government has tolerated what it considers a particularly depraved and un-Islamic vice: the keeping of pet dogs.

During periodic crackdowns, police have confiscated dogs from their owners right off the street; and state media has lectured Iranians on the diseases spread by canines. The cleric Gholamreza Hassani, from the city of Urmia, has been satirized for his sermons railing against “short-legged” and “holdable” dogs. But as with the policing of many other practices (like imbibing alcoholic drinks) that are deemed impure by the mullahs but perfectly fine to many Iranians, the state has eventually relaxed and let dog lovers be.

Those days of tacit acceptance may soon be over, however. Lawmakers in Tehran have recently proposed a bill in parliament that would criminalize dog ownership, formally enshrining its punishment within the country’s Islamic penal code. The bill warns that that in addition to posing public health hazards, the popularity of dog ownership “also poses a cultural problem, a blind imitation of the vulgar culture of the West.” The proposed legislation for the first time outlines specific punishments for “the walking and keeping” of “impure and dangerous animals,” a definition that could feasibly include cats but for the time being seems targeted at dogs.

The law would see the offending animal confiscated, the leveling of a $100-to-$500 fine on the owner, but leaves the fate of confiscated dogs uncertain. “Considering the several thousand dogs [that are kept] in Tehran alone, the problem arises as to what is going to happen to these animals,” Hooman Malekpour, a veterinarian in Tehran, said to the BBC’s Persian service. If passed, the law would ultimately energize police and volunteer militias to enforce the ban systematically.

Islam, by custom, considers dogs najes, or unclean, and for the past century cultural mores kept dog ownership down to minuscule numbers. In rural areas, dogs have traditionally aided shepherds and farmers, but as Iranians got urbanized in the past century, their dogs did not come along. In cities, aristocrats kept dogs for hunting and French-speaking dowagers kept lap dogs for company, but the vast majority of traditional Iranians, following the advice of the clergy, were leery of dogs and considered them best avoided.

That has changed in the past 15 years with the rise of an urban middle class plugged into and eager to mimic Western culture. Satellite television and Western movies opened up a world where happy children frolicked with dogs in parks and affluent families treated them like adorable children. These days, lap dogs rival designer sunglasses as the upper-middle-class Iranian's accessory of choice.

"Global norms and values capture the heart of people all around the world, and Iran is no exception," says Omid Memarian, a prominent Iranian journalist specializing in human rights. "This is very frightening for Iranian officials, who find themselves in a cultural war with the West and see what they're offering as an 'Islamic lifestyle' failing measurably."

In 2007, two years into the tenure of hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, security forces targeted dog owners alongside a crackdown on women's attire and men's "Westernized" hairstyles. In the regime's eyes, owning a dog had become on par with wearing capri pants or sporting a mullet — a rebellious act.

The criminalizing of dogs, in this context, helps the government address the legal gray areas concerning lifestyle behavior. When authorities found it difficult to police what it termed Westernized hairstyles worn by young men, it solved the problem last year by releasing a poster of specifically banned styles.

For many young people, these measures are a firm reminder that the government will brook no disobedience, whether it be chanting antigovernment slogans in the streets or sporting excessively long sideburns. Dog owners in Iran, like much of the population, are mostly preoccupied these days with inflation, joblessness and the parlous state of the country's economy. But they will soon need to consider whether keeping their shih tzu or poodle is worth the added worry. Their dogs may face the same fate as the hundreds of street dogs that the government regularly sweeps from the streets of Tehran.

"Many in Tehran and other big cities find the killing of street dogs offensive and cruel," says Memarian. "It's like the Iranian people and officials live in two different worlds."

The real reason they do not like dogs is because a dog is a higher, superior life than muhammad is.

So this is why IslamObama flies his daughters dog BO, the White House PROP of a dog that no one ever sees, on his own SEPARATE AIRPLANE. Bo gets to ride with IslamObama's boyfriend and constant companion Reggie Love.

Iran Confirms Factory Producing Centrifuge Parts

Iran confirms factory producing centrifuge parts

FOX News

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran's foreign minister has confirmed claims by an exiled Iranian opposition group that a factory west of Tehran is manufacturing centrifuge parts.

Ali Akbar Salehi, quoted by the state news agency IRNA, says the facility is no secret and that many other facilities in the country are involved in manufacturing parts for Iran's nuclear program.

Iran has long said it produces centrifuges, which are used to enrich uranium, a process that the U.N. has demanded Tehran halt.

Two days earlier, the exile Mujahedeen-e Khalq group said its spies identified the factory, called the TABA facility.
Iran says it is building a civilian nuclear power program, but the U.S. and its allies suspect it seeks the capacity to build nuclear bombs.

Ahmadinejad Stinks Up New York Hotel and Other Guests Leave

Ahmadinejad's food 'stinks up hotel'

Iranian leader refuses to eat food prepared by hotel's chefs, instead brings private chef from Iran to cook his meals. Hotel guests complain of foul odor

YNet news

Something besides the Iranian leader’s nuclear plans or calls to destroy Israel seems to be bothering residents of the Big Apple and guests at the hotel in which he is staying. The New York Post reported that hotels guests complained of a foul odor in the hotel caused by the food cooked especially for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The leader of the Islamic Republic does not eat the food prepared by the hotel chefs for guests, but instead brought his own personal chef from Iran to cook his meals for him.

Guests told the New York Post that his meals “stunk up the hotel,” prompting them to leave the hotel and seek lodging elsewhere.

"Stinky" Mahmoud Ahmadinejad At Un Says 9-11 Attacks Done To Help Economy

The US delegation walked out of Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's address at the United Nations. At the time Ahmadinejad was denouncing the United States' history of colonialism while incorporating it with the September 11th attacks on the nation.

Other things he said at UN:

* Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who arrived in New York on Sunday for the UN General Assembly meetings this week, described international sanctions against his country as meaningless and ineffective, as consternation about Iran’s nuclear future grows. When asked about Fidel Castro’s recent comments, in which the Cuban leader told Ahmadinejad to stop attacking the Jews, denying the Holocaust and being anti- Semitic, Ahmadinejad said he is not an anti-Semite. “We’ve never been anti- Semitic – when was I anti- Semitic?” he said. “The Jews live in Iran, like every other person who lives in Iran freely.” ~ Jerusalem Post

* Ahmadinejad warned Tuesday that an attack on his country's nuclear facilities could spark a war with "no limits," US media reported. He also suggested that the Holocaust had been exaggerated as a "pretext for war," during a New York meeting with US media owners and editors. "The United States doesn't understand what war looks like. When a war starts, it knows no limits," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying in response to a question about any US-supported strike by Israel on Iran's nuclear facilities. "The United States has never entered a serious war, and has never been victorious. " ~ AFP

* Ahmadinejad is to address the General Assembly on Thursday, but spoke to other audiences in the days leading up to his speech.
Speaking before a group of Muslim figures in New York on Monday night, Ahmadinejad said “the Iranian nation will never recognize the Zionist regime,” Iran’s Fars News Agency reported on Tuesday.
“Palestinians can cut the hands of the aggressor and put an end to the Zionist regime’s presence in the region,” he reportedly said. ~ Jerusalem Post


Wild Thing's comment........

First, Canadians walked out on Iranian regime president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad , then later in the day the Canadian President gave his speech but no one else in his delegation was there.

The today Obama gave his speech and not until Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke and did his spewing of hate.....then the US delegation walked out.

The US ought to walk out of the UN entirely. Close it down... knock down the building and kick all of them off our soil.

Foxnews said the UK delegation also got up and left right after the Americans did.

Ahmadinejad is nuts besides all the other things he is, his contraditions about what he has said and feels about Jews is amazing and shocking. He is a liar to himself as much as to everyone else.

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned Tuesday that an attack on his country’s nuclear facilities could spark a war with “no limits,” US media reported.

Yo Mahmoud is Thursday good for you? And, by the way, we weren’t expecting limitations? We will be planning on sending you on the fast elevator to hell. And to begin with we could always show him the “After” photos of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

"The United States has never entered a serious war, and has never been victorious,"

What rock is this idiot living under?

Ahmadinejad said Tuesday during a conversation with reporters in New York that the Holocaust was exaggerated in order to create a pretext for starting a war.

Previously he has stated that the Holocaust never happened; now he admits the Holocaust happened, just exaggerated. Mensa candidate, not.

Iran Unveils Unmanned Bomber, Dubbed 'Ambassador Of Death' By Ahmadinejad

Iran Unveils Unmanned Bomber, Dubbed 'Ambassador Of Death' By Ahmadinejad

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday inaugurated the country's first domestically built unmanned bomber aircraft, calling it an "ambassador of death" to Iran's enemies.

The 4-meter-long drone aircraft can carry up to four cruise missiles and will have a range of 620 miles (1,000 kilometers), according to a state TV report – not far enough to reach archenemy Israel.

"The jet, as well as being an ambassador of death for the enemies of humanity, has a main message of peace and friendship," said Ahmadinejad at the inauguration ceremony, which fell on the country's national day for its defense industries.

The goal of the aircraft, named Karrar or striker, is to "keep the enemy paralyzed in its bases," he said, adding that the aircraft is for deterrence and defensive purposes.

The president championed the country's military self-sufficiency program, and said it will continue "until the enemies of humanity lose hope of ever attacking the Iranian nation."

Iran insists it is only interested in generating electricity.

Referring to Israel's occasional threats against Iran's nuclear facilities, Ahmadinejad called any attack unlikely, but he said if Israel did, the reaction would be overwhelming.

"The scope of Iran's reaction will include the entire the earth," said Ahmadinejad. "We also tell you – the West – that all options are on the table."

Steinitz Demands Ultimatum for Iran

Steinitz demands ultimatum for Iran


Raising the stakes: Finance minister says America must warn Tehran of military strike within weeks; ‘Time has come for whole world, under US leadership, to present Iran with unequivocal ultimatum,’ he says

The US should issue a strict ultimatum to Iran, warning that the possibility of a military strike will turn into reality within weeks should Tehran fail to curb its nuclear program, Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz said Thursday.
In the first such statement by a Cabinet member, Steinitz said: "The US must issue a clear ultimatum to Iran, tell it that if it does not change its behavior within weeks, the military option that has been on the table up until now will become relevant."

Steinitz, who is a close associate of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is familiar with Iran's nuclear program from his service as the chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

"It’s time for the whole world, under US leadership, to issue Iran a clear ultimatum that if it does not change its ways in a clear and verifiable manner, it can expect an American attack, or at least a naval blockade," he said.

Steinitz refrained from mentioning Netanyahu's stance on the matter, but said the demand for an ultimatum is being made despite certain achievements in diplomacy and other measures adopted by the international community.

He also disputed claims by the by former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton, who said Israel has "days" to attack Iran before Russia fuels its Bushehr nuclear facility.

"Bushehr is only one reactor, and not necessarily the most significant one in respect to the nuclear issue. However, Iran's progress in enriching (uranium) and its aspirations for nuclear weapons continue and must be stopped," the finance minister said.

Wild Thing's comment........

I think they are worried if we would back them up or not and they should be. Obama has already proven in many ways who he is on the side of and it is NOT Israel. It must be frustrating for them like it is for all of us, to want a President that is a real leader and a darn good one and instead we are stuck with a Jew hating, America hating, Israel hating Muslim.

Barack Obama 'May Be Prepared to Meet Iranian President’

Barack Obama 'may be prepared to meet Iranian president’

Telegraph co.uk

Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Gen James Jones, has indicated the President may be prepared to meet Mahmoud Ahmadinejad if the regime resumed negotiations over its nuclear programme.

The retired general also indicated that the return of three American hikers held in Iran for the past year would be an “important gesture”.

Earlier this month, Mr Ahmadinejad requested face-to-face talks with Mr Obama during the UN General Assembly meeting in New York. The White House had appeared to rule out any meeting.

However, in an interview with CNN, Gen Jones said “the door’s open” if the Iranians agree to resume talks with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

When asked whether Mr Obama may meet the Iranian leader, Gen Jones said: “Ultimately if we find a convergence of paths all things are possible.
“One thing they might do is return our three hikers. That would be an important gesture. It could lead to better relations.” However, the President’s national security adviser said there would be “no point in a theatrical meeting.” It is unlikely that the Iranians will agree to the American’s demands as the regime has repeatedly circumvented previous attempts to rein in its nuclear programme.

Earlier this month, Mr Ahmadinejad said he was ready for face-to-face talks.

“We are hopefully coming for the UN assembly,” Mr Ahmadinejad said in an address to expatriate Iranians which was broadcast live on state television.
“We are ready to sit down with Mr Obama face-to-face and put the global issues on the table, man-to-man, freely, and in front of the media and see whose solutions are better. We think this is a better approach.”

In the interview, Gen Jones refused to be drawn on whether military action might be considered against Iran if it fails to comply with international demands.

“I’m not going to speculate on that,” he said.


Dictators Mock Obama's Ignorance

Gaza blockade: Iran offers escort to next aid convoy

Gaza blockade: Iran offers escort to next aid convoy

Iran has warned that it could send Revolutionary Guard naval units to escort humanitarian aid convoys seeking to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza – a move that would certainly be challenged by Israel.

Any such Iranian involvement, raised today by an aide to the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, would constitute a serious escalation of already high tensions with Israel, which accuses Tehran of seeking to build a nuclear weapon and of backing Hamas, the Islamist movement that controls Gaza.

"Iran's Revolutionary Guard naval forces are prepared to escort the peace and freedom convoys that carry humanitarian assistance for the defenceless and oppressed people of Gaza with all their strength," pledged Hojjatoleslam Ali Shirazi, Khamenei's personal representative to the guards corps.

The threat came as the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, dismissed a UN proposal for an international commission to investigate last week's commando assault on aid ships, in which nine people died. Another aid ship, the Rachel Corrie, carrying Irish and other peace activists, was boarded peacefully by Israeli forces on Saturday, escorted to the port of Ashdod, and its passengers deported.

Netanyahu has defended Israel's right to maintain the blockade by arguing that without it Gaza would become an "Iranian port" and Hamas missiles would strike Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Israel's undeclared aim is to weaken or bring down the Hamas government.

Iran continued to exploit the "freedom flotilla" affair to lambast Israel. Its foreign minister, Manuchehr Mottaki, told the Organisation of the Islamic Conference in Jeddah on Sunday that Israel's crime was "another instance of the Zionist regime's brazen and merciless treatment of Muslims, especially the oppressed Palestinian people."

Mottaki also called for a UN resolution condemning Israel. The security council is discussing imposing new sanctions on Iran because of its failure to meet international demands over its nuclear programme.

Iran and Israel have had no diplomatic relations since the 1979 revolution and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad regularly predicts the disappearance of the Jewish state as well as denying the Holocaust.

Shirazi said Iran should encourage international efforts to break the blockade. "We should expose our enemies to spontaneous global action and not let them achieve their heinous goals," he was quoted as saying by the semi-official Mehr news agency.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards, which have a command structure separate from the regular armed forces, are fiercely loyal to the supreme leader. Khamenei has attacked the raid as a "mistake" that "showed how barbaric the Zionists are".

Israel's determination to strike at links between Iran and Hamas was dramatically demonstrated in January when presumed Mossad agents in Dubai assassinated Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, who was described as the Hamas official in charge of smuggling Iranian weapons into Gaza.

Israel's no-compromise attitude to aid convoys could be tested again after two Lebanese organisations pledged to send boats to Gaza in the next few days. Reporters Without Borders is attempting to assemble 25 European activists and 50 journalists for a boat leaving Beirut. The Free Palestine Movement is planning a similar attempt.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Another after-effect of obama’s dereliction in foreign policy.

But it is not just simply a dereliction of duty in foreign policy. This is a result of the Iranians and other Islamic radicals knowing that Obama will not defend Israel. They know that now, like no other time in recent history, is the time to challenge Israel. This is not pretty.

In a short 1-1/2 year period Obama has nationalized the auto industry, taken over a substantial number of banks, made medical care into a bigger bureaucratic mess than it ever was, spent us into destabilizing debt, overseen the loss of millions of jobs and the loss of an enormous amount of American wealth, and totally screwed up what is arguably the biggest environmental disaster the country has ever seen. That's just for starters.

What he is doing in the Middle East could conceivably put the world at risk of global conflict.

Iranian Defense Ministry Produces New Combat Choppers


Iran has produced a number of domestically-designed combat choppers named 'Toufan' (Hurricane) which are equipped with hi-tech weapons and anti-tank missiles, the defense ministry announced on Saturday.

"The combat chopper is equipped with advanced weapons systems, including anti-tank missiles, rocket-launcher and 20-mm artillery and enjoys high mobility," Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said.

Vahidi also declared inauguration of the mass-production line of composite propellers for chopper 214 by the defense ministry’s affiliated industries.

Iran has recently made good progress in the air industry and has succeeded in gaining the technical know-how for producing stealth aircraft and drones.

Obama Seeks To Soften Iran Sanctions


White House seeks to soften Iran sanctions

Washington Times

The Obama administration is pressing Congress to provide an exemption from Iran sanctions to companies based in "cooperating countries," a move that likely would exempt Chinese and Russian concerns from penalties meant to discourage investment in Iran.

The Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act is in a House-Senate conference committee and is expected to reach President Obama's desk by Memorial Day.

"It's incredible the administration is asking for exemptions, under the table and winking and nodding, before the legislation is signed into law," Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Florida Republican and a conference committee member, said in an interview. A White House official confirmed Wednesday that the administration was pushing the conference committee to adopt the exemption of "cooperating countries" in the legislation.

Although Iran is one of the world's leading oil exporters, it lacks the capacity to refine as much oil into gasoline as its domestic economy uses. Three years ago, the Iranian government imposed gasoline rations on the population.

"We're pushing for a 'cooperating-countries' exemption," the White House official said. "It is not targeted to any country in particular, but would be based on objective criteria and made in full consultation with the Congress."
Mrs. Ros-Lehtinen, however, said the exemption "is aimed at China and Russia specifically."
"The administration wants to give a pass to countries for merely supporting a watered-down, almost do-nothing U.N. resolution," she said.

Obama administration now open to Iran nuclear fuel deal despite doubts


The United States said on Monday it was still willing to discuss a nuclear fuel swap deal with Iran, but only if Tehran takes clear steps to address international concerns about its nuclear program.


Pentagon chief raises threat of attack as Iran taunts U.S. with missile display

Times Online.co.uk

The Pentagon was ratcheting up pressure for military action against Iran last night as America’s top uniformed official said for the first time that a strike on nuclear targets would “go a long way” towards delaying Tehran’s uranium enrichment programme.

The remarks by Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, were his strongest yet in support of a strategy that both the Pentagon and the Obama Administration still regard as a last resort and possibly a recipe for a regional war.

They came as President Ahmadinejad taunted the US with a potent display of missile technology, while a leaked top-secret memo by Robert Gates, the US Defence Secretary, forced the White House to insist that it was preparing for all contingencies.

The war of words in Washington may reflect a power struggle between an Administration still committed to a diplomatic approach to Iran and an increasingly impatient Pentagon.

Speaking at Columbia University, Admiral Mullen said last night of the Iranian nuclear programme: “Military options would go a long way to delaying it. That’s not my call. That’s going to be the President’s call. But from my perspective . . . the last option is to strike right now.”

Against this background Mr Gates wrote a memo described by those who have seen it as a “wake-up call” to General James Jones, Mr Obama’s National Security Adviser. It warned that the Administration had no effective plans to deal with Iran should it assemble the components of a nuclear weapon but stop short of building one. Mr Gates also noted that detecting a shift from such a “virtual” nuclear capability to fully armed status would be almost impossible and that no coherent strategy was in place to face down Tehran once such a shift was made.

The memo was written in January but its existence was disclosed by The New York Times at the weekend. Ben Rhodes, a White House spokesman, said that it was “absolutely false” that the document had forced the Administration to reassess its options on Iran, while General Jones told the newspaper: “The fact that we don’t announce publicly our entire strategy doesn’t mean we don’t have a strategy that anticipates the full range of contingencies — we do.”

It was unclear yesterday who was behind the leak of the Gates memo but the vehemence of the White House response suggests that senior Pentagon figures may be responsible. A similar pattern shadowed Mr Obama’s decision to deploy 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan last year.


Gates warns White House over 'Iran nukes' policy: report

US Defense Secretary Robert Gates has warned the White House it does not have an effective policy for dealing with Iran's alleged nuclear weapons push, The New York Times reported late Saturday.

Citing unnamed government officials, the newspaper said one senior official described the secret memorandum, which was written in January, as "a wake-up call."

According to the report, the document sparked efforts in the Pentagon, the White House and the intelligence agencies to develop new options for President Barack Obama.

They included secret military operation against Iran if international sanctions failed to force the country to change its approach, the paper said.

Gates wrote in the memorandum about several of his concerns, including a scenario that many experts consider the most likely, The Times said.

Under this scenario, Iran would assemble all the major parts required but stop short of actually making a fully operational weapon.

In that case, Iran could remain a signatory of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty while becoming what experts call a "virtual" nuclear weapons state, the report said.

The memorandum also urged the White House to think about how the United States might contain Iran if it decided to produce a weapon; and how to deal with the possibility that nuclear fuel or weapons could be obtained by one of the militant groups Iran supports, the paper said.

Iran Army Day parade displays missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads

Jerusalem Post

The forum, which Iran said was attended by representatives of 60 countries, gave Teheran a platform for challenging Washington's assertion that it wants to see a world without nuclear weapons and for defending its own nuclear program. It criticized what it called a double-standard by some nuclear powers that urge disarmament while ignoring the nuclear arsenal Israel is widely believed to possess.

A nuclear weapons-free Middle East requires "the Zionist regime to join the NPT," said the concluding statement of the conference read out by Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki.

The conference's statement, also took issue with perceived threats by the US and Israel to attack Iranian nuclear facilities.

"The conference expressed its concerns about the continued existence of Weapons of Mass Destruction — nuclear arms in particular — as well as their application or threat to apply them," the statement said.

Teheran was angered by Obama's announcement this month of a new US nuclear policy in which he pledged America would not use atomic weapons against nations that do not have them. Iran and North Korea were pointedly excluded from the non-use pledge, and Iranian leaders took that as an implicit threat.

U.S. Enriches Companies Defying Its Policy on Iran

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, center, in Brazil last fall. The nations agreed to share technical expertise on energy projects.

Presently the United States is paying over $107 Billion to vendors companies that are breaking the Iranian sanctions.

U.S. Enriches Companies Defying Its Policy on Iran

NY Times

The federal government has awarded more than $107 billion in contract payments, grants and other benefits over the past decade to foreign and multinational American companies while they were doing business in Iran, despite Washington’s efforts to discourage investment there, records show.

That includes nearly $15 billion paid to companies that defied American sanctions law by making large investments that helped Iran develop its vast oil and gas reserves.

For years, the United States has been pressing other nations to join its efforts to squeeze the Iranian economy, in hopes of reining in Tehran’s nuclear ambitions. Now, with the nuclear standoff hardening and Iran rebuffing American diplomatic outreach, the Obama administration is trying to win a tough new round of United Nations sanctions.

But a New York Times analysis of federal records, company reports and other documents shows that both the Obama and Bush administrations have sent mixed messages to the corporate world when it comes to doing business in Iran, rewarding companies whose commercial interests conflict with American security goals.

Many of those companies are enmeshed in the most vital elements of Iran’s economy. More than two-thirds of the government money went to companies doing business in Iran’s energy industry — a huge source of revenue for the Iranian government and a stronghold of the increasingly powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, a primary focus of the Obama administration’s proposed sanctions because it oversees Iran’s nuclear and missile programs.

Other companies are involved in auto manufacturing and distribution, another important sector of the Iranian economy with links to the Revolutionary Guards. One supplied container ship motors to IRISL, a government-owned shipping line that was subsequently blacklisted by the United States for concealing military cargo.

In recent months, a number of companies have decided to pull out of Iran, because of a combination of pressure by the United States and other Western governments, “terrorism free” divestment campaigns by shareholders and the difficulty of doing business with Iran’s government. And several oil and gas companies are holding off on new investment, waiting to see what shape new sanctions may assume.

Continue HERE for othe rest of the article

Wild Thing's comment.......

The New York Times identified 74 companies that have done business both in Iran and with the United States government over the last decade. Out of the 74:

14 no longer do buisness in Iran
11 are in Iran but promise to pull out right after they finish this one last progect
49 are still getting money from the US and Iran

John Bolton, former United Nations ambassador in the Bush administration, said failing to enforce the law by punishing such companies both sent “a signal to the Iranians that we’re not serious” and undercut Washington’s credibility when it did threaten action.

Iran Is Now A 'nuclear state' Says Ahmadinejad

Iran is now a 'nuclear state' says Ahmadinejad as thousands take to the streets

Daily Mail.co.uk

* Gordon Brown: The world's patience is wearing thin

* Security forces fire tear gas and paint balls on opposition protesters

* Internet connections attacked in Tehran as regime tries to foil opposition

* Opposition leader attacked

Iran is now a 'nuclear state', President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced this morning.

As Gordon Brown warned that the world's patience is wearing thin, Ahmadinejad told scores of cheering Iranians that the Islamic Republic is capable of producing weapons-grade uranium.

He spoke as tens of thousands of people took to the streets in Tehran to mark the 31st anniversary of the Islamic revolution.

John Bolton on Hannity discusses this.......... And says Obama Appears Weak to Iran; Regime's Nuke Work Likely Further Along Than WH Claims


John Bolton.......Is Obama Appeasing Iran? YESSSSS

Despite fears of violence, opposition supporters found themselves largely overwhelmed by the clerical regime and pro-government demonstrators.

The massive security clampdown appeared to succeed in preventing protesters from converging into a cohesive demonstrations.

Large numbers of riot police, members of the Revolutionary Guard and Basij militiamen, some on motorcycles, deployed in back streets near key squares and major avenues in the capital to move against protesters.

He said it had produced its first batch of 20 per cent enriched uranium - and had the capability to enrich to far higher levels at its Natanz plant.

Enriching uranium produces fuel for a nuclear power plants but can also be used to create material for atomic weapons.

The international community has warned Iran against further enrichment activities, threatening new UN sanctions.
Today Gordon Brown again reiterated the threat of sanctions.

'I believe the mood around the world is now increasingly one where, patience not being inexhaustible, people are turning to look at the specific sanctions we can plan on Iran,' Mr Brown said.
'This is a critical time for Iran's relationship with the rest of the world.' MrBrown said the international community did not want to impose sanctions but would do so if Iran did not cooperate more fully over its nuclear plans

The Iranian leader insisted the material was not intended to produce an atomic bomb, however.

'We have the capability to enrich uranium more than 20 percent or 80 percent (the level needed to create an atomic bomb),' he said in a speech broadcast live on state television.

Krauthammer: Obama Pays Deference To Iranian Mullahs


Wild Thing's comment.......

God bless John Bolton and Charles Krauthammer!!!

I guess someone should send Jimmy Carter a thank you note. The chickens of his disastrous presidency have now come home to roost.

And now Iran is a nuclear state, and Obama and his Administration think our biggest problem is getting a healthcare bill the public doesn’t want passed.

Nephew Of Ali Mousavi KILLED During Deadly Protests Of Terrorist Ahmadinejad's Regime

The nephew of Iranian opposition leader Ali Mousavi, reportedly laying on the ground shot in the back on Azadi Street, or Freedom Street, during clashes in which security forces reportedly fired on demonstrators. There were protests all across Tehran today against the thug Ahmadinejad's regime.



At least 5 killed in Iran protests


Iranian security forces fired on stone-throwing protesters in the center of the capital Sunday in one of the bloodiest confrontations in months, opposition Web sites and witnesses said. At least five people were killed.

Some accounts of the violence in Tehran were vivid and detailed, but they could not be independently confirmed because of government restrictions on media coverage. Police, who denied using firearms, said dozens of officers were injured and more than 300 protesters were arrested.

The dead included a nephew of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, according to Mousavi's Web site, Kaleme.ir. The clashes were sure to deepen antagonism between the government and a reform movement that has shown resilience in the face of repeated crackdowns.

The street chaos coincided with commemorations of Shiite Islam's most important observance, Ashoura, fueling protesters' defiance with its message of sacrifice and dignity in the face of coercion.

Still, many demonstrators had not anticipated such harsh tactics by the authorities, despite police warnings of tougher action against any protests on the sacred day.

Amateur video footage purportedly from the center of Tehran showed an enraged crowd carrying away one casualty, chanting, "I'll kill, I'll kill the one who killed my brother." In several locations, demonstrators confronted security forces, hurling stones and setting their motorcycles, cars and vans ablaze, according to video footage and pro-reform Web sites.

Protesters tried to cut off roads with burning barricades. One police officer was photographed with blood streaming down his face after he was set upon by the crowd.

The protests began with thousands of opposition supporters chanting "Death to the dictator," a reference to hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, as they marched in defiance of official warnings of a harsh crackdown on any demonstrations coinciding with Ashoura. The observance commemorates the seventh-century death in battle of one of Shiite Islam's most beloved saints.

Security forces tried but failed to disperse protesters on a central Tehran street with tear gas, baton charges and warning shots. They then opened fire on protesters, killing at least three people, said witnesses and the Rah-e-Sabz Web site. Another protester was shot dead on a nearby street, they said.

Witnesses said one victim was an elderly man who had a gunshot wound to the forehead. He was seen being carried away by opposition supporters with blood covering his face.

More than two dozen opposition supporters were injured, some of them seriously, with limbs broken from beatings, according to witnesses.

An Iranian police statement said five people were killed in the unrest. "Experts are seeking to identify the suspicious elements," the statement said.

Iran's deputy police chief, Ahmad Reza Radan, said one person died after falling from a bridge, two were killed in a car accident, and a fourth was fatally shot.

"Given the fact that police did not use firearms, this incident looks completely suspicious and the case is under investigation," Radan said.

He said dozens of injured police were treated in hospitals, and more than 300 "seditionists" were arrested.

The clashes marked the bloodiest confrontation since the height of unrest in the weeks after June's election. The opposition says Ahmadinejad won the election through massive vote fraud and that Mousavi was the true winner.

Shocking Video Iranian Protesters Save Prisoners from Hanging in Sirjan & Attack Police Truck — Regime Shoot Down Protesters

The BBC reported that, “This is the same type of protesting that toppled the Shah.”

From The Daily Night Owl :

In the closing hours of the day, the number of dead in Tehran rose from four to around 8-10. Full confirmation is not at hand, but given the reports of security forces firing on protesters, it does not seem surprising for the number to higher. The number of people arrested so far in Tehran and around Iran is probably over 300 people


Wild Thing's comment..............

"One way or the other, Iran will dominate 2010. Either there will be an Israeli attack or Iran will arrive at -- or cross -- the nuclear threshold. Unless revolution intervenes. Which is why to fail to do everything in our power to support this popular revolt is unforgivable."-- Charles Krauthammer

And just as Obama has made no comment about the failed terrorist attack on Christmas day he is again silent about this surge in protests and attacks in Iran. Even though most of Europe is outraged and supporting these students. It just KILLS OBAMA if he would have to speak out against ANY Muslim. Just like he did not even seem upset about Fort Hood, or the terrorist attack in Little Rock where he said nothing.

We have imo a terrorist in office, in our White House, he may not be loaded up with bombs on his ugly chest. BUT he has been bombing our country with his agenda since he was sworn in. Destroying our country day by day and he has no intention of halting.

Traitor and Treasonous Pro-Islam Obama Stabs Marines, Their Families in Back Regarding the Beirut Bombing


Terrorist attack on US marines in Lebanon

My dear friend at Bare Naked Islam has a post about Obama that is so horrible. Once again he is showing what an evil vile person he is and how he hates our country and our troops. ~ Wild Thing

Obama and his pro-Islamic Department of Justice (DOJ), have stabbed the families of the Beirut bombing victims in the back. Just like he did the families of the 911 victims, when he had the DOJ fill a brief to shield the Saudi Royal Family from any 911 lawsuits. Any questions where his loyalties lie?

OBAMA has his administration are going to court to try to block payments from Iranian assets that lawyers for the dead Marines’ families want seized as restitution for the terrorist attack on the Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983. Obama is contending that ‘it would jeopardize sensitive negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program and establish a potentially damaging precedent.’

Adding insult to infamy, 26 years after attack on Marine barracks in Beirut, families stymied again in bid for restitution, this time by Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

On Veterans Day, Christine Devlin stood in the cold in Westwood for the unveiling of a new memorial to local soldiers lost overseas, including her son Michael, one of the 241 servicemen killed in the bombing of the US Marine barracks in Lebanon in 1983.

Devlin is among 30 Massachusetts relatives of victims of the Beirut attack who have been fighting for more than a decade to get compensation for what many consider the first major terrorist attack against the United States. After a federal judge ruled in 2007 that Iran was liable for $2.65 billion in damages to be shared by 150 families seeking restitution, they believed they were on the cusp of victory.

But now, the Obama administration is going to court to try to block payments from Iranian assets that the families’ lawyers want seized, contending that it would jeopardize sensitive negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program and establish a potentially damaging precedent.

In a little-noticed filing in federal court, the Justice Department is arguing that giving the money to the victims “can have significant, detrimental impact on our foreign relations, as well as the reciprocal treatment of the United States and its extensive overseas property holdings.’’

The Obama administration’s position is a blow to those like Devlin, who is still waiting for some measure of justice for her son, who was 21 when Hezbollah terrorists rammed a suicide truck bomb into the peacekeepers’ headquarters.

“It is offensive that our government - the government that [the Marines] were fighting for, who sent them there - are against us collecting from Iran,’’ Devlin said in an interview this week. “I felt justice was going to be served, but so far it hasn’t.’’
“We can’t go on with our lives,’’ said Marlys Lemnah, 62, of St. Albans, Vt., whose husband, Richard, a Marine sergeant nearing his 20-year retirement, was killed in Beirut. “It’s not about the money. We need something tangible: responsibility and accountability. We will fight until we have no more fight left.’’

The lawsuit, specialists say, also demonstrates the enormous difficulty for terrorism victims in general to collect damages. Despite a host of court rulings in its favor and legislation passed by Congress to make it possible to sue foreign governments that sponsor terrorism, the executive branch has long resisted such payments, arguing that seizing the assets of another country could restrict the president’s ability to conduct diplomacy. There are also significant legal disagreements over what kind of assets can be seized.

Two branches are supporting [the families’] position and the executive branch is directly trying to undermine them. Even the courts have grown frustrated. Royce C. Lamberth, chief judge of the US District Court in Washington who ruled in favor of the Beirut families, wrote in a Sept. 30 opinion that “these case have consumed substantial judicial resources while achieving few tangible results for the victims.’’ READ MORE: BOSTON GLOBE

Obama Cuts Pro-Democracy Funds for Iran

Obama Cuts Pro-Democracy Funds for Iran


The Obama administration has cut funding for pro-democracy and human rights programs in Iran, reversing years of efforts during the Bush administration to help develop a civil society, congressional sources told Newsmax this week.

The move is apparently intended to please Iran’s rulers after they criticized President Obama and the State Department for allegedly seeking to fund a “velvet revolution” during the June presidential elections in Iran.

“It sounds like the Iranians complained in Geneva and we acceded to their demands,” a former senior government official familiar with the pro-democracy programs told Newsmax.
“It’s shameful,” he added. “This sends a clear message to Tehran that we are empowering the Iranian regime to be obstinate and fight us."

Word that the administration was planning to cut the pro-democracy programs leaked out in June, when the draft budget for the State Department sent to Congress zeroed out the funds.

Sen. Joseph Lieberman, who co-sponsored legislation earlier this year that greatly expands pro-democracy funding, questioned the wisdom of the Obama administration’s policy shift.

“It is disturbing that the State Department would cut off funding at precisely the moment when these brave investigations are needed most,” he said last week.

Lieberman’s bill, called the Victims of Iranian Censorship (VOICE) act, passed the Senate in July and has been incorporated into the annual defense appropriations bill, which is scheduled for a final vote this week.

The Iran democracy programs have been shrouded in secrecy, even though they are not classified. David Denehy, a former program manager at the State Department, said he had agreed not to disclose specific grantees or projects, to protect participants who were working inside Iran.

“We did good things with Internet freedom, civil society organizations, and in helping to better inform the Iranian people and better connect them to the outside world,” he told Newsmax. “I don’t see why President Obama wouldn’t support these things. The United States philosophically should always stand on the side of freedom against tyranny.”

Iran's Ahmadinejad – a self-hating Jew?

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad revealing his identity papers (Photo: London Telegraph

Iran's Ahmadinejad – a self-hating Jew?

Photo of president holding up identity card shows family changed name from Hebrew


Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has exasperated the world with incensed condemnations of Israel and his insistence that the Holocaust is a hoax, but could there be another reason behind his seeming hatred for the Jews?

According to a London Telegraph report, his ferocity may be overcompensation … for his own Jewish roots.

Examining a photo of the Iranian president holding aloft his identity card during the nation's 2008 elections, the newspaper discovered Ahmadinejad's original family name – prior to their conversion to Islam – was Sabourjian, a Jewish name meaning "cloth weaver."

Ahmadinejad has not denied that his name was changed when his family moved to Tehran in the 1950s, but he has also never confirmed what that original name was.

A note on his identification papers, when magnified from the photo, however, suggests the man from Aradan, Iran, carried a common Jewish name from the region of his birth. "Sabourjian," the Telegraph reports, is even on the list of reserved names for Iranian Jews compiled by Iran's Ministry of the Interior.

"This aspect of Mr. Ahmadinejad's background explains a lot about him," commented Ali Nourizadeh of the Centre for Arab and Iranian Studies. "Every family that converts into a different religion takes a new identity by condemning their old faith."
Nouizadeh told the Telegraph, "By making anti-Israeli statements, he is trying to shed any suspicions about his Jewish connections. He feels vulnerable in a radical Shia society."

Ahmadinejad, the fourth of seven children to a man who worked as an ironworker, grocer, barber and blacksmith, moved with his family to Tehran was he was a small child. Reportedly, the family moved to seek better economic fortunes, but also took on the new, Islamic name.

A 2007 Congressional Research Service report lists the Iranian president's original family name as "Saborjhian," linking the name to the Farsi "sabor," meaning "thread painter."

Some biographers, including Joel C. Rosenberg, list Ahmadinejad's original family name as "Sabaghian," meaning "dye-master" in Persian.

But the Telegraph reports the name on his papers is "Sabourjian" and cites a London-based expert on Iranian Jewry, who says the "jian" ending is specifically Jewish.

"He has changed his name for religious reasons, or at least his parents had," said the newspaper's source. "Sabourjian is well known Jewish name in Iran."

If Ahmadinejad is of Jewish ancestry, he has done much to distance himself from his heritage.

In a 2006 speech aired on the Iranian News Channel, Ahmadinejad listed alleged crimes by Israel against Palestinians while the crowd chanted, "Death to Israel! Death to Israel!"
Ahmadinejad responded, speaking of the Jewish people, "They have no boundaries, limits or taboos when it comes to killing human beings. Who are they? Where did they come from? Are they human beings? 'They are like cattle, nay, more misguided.' A bunch of bloodthirsty barbarians. Next to them, all the criminals of the world seem righteous."
That same year, he said, "[Isreal] will be gone, definitely. You [Western powers] should know that any government that stands by the Zionist regime from now on will not see any result but the hatred of the people."
At a U.N. meeting last month, the Iranian president denounced Israel for "genocide, barbarism and racism."
"Yesterday, the man who calls the Holocaust a lie spoke from this podium," responded Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the same U.N. summit. "A mere six decades after the Holocaust, you give legitimacy to a man who denies the murder of six million Jews while promising to wipe out the State of Israel, the State of the Jews. What a disgrace. What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations."

The Telegraph reports it contacted the Israeli embassy in London for comment on Ahmadinejad's birth name but was told it would not speak on the Iranian president's background.

"It's not something we'd talk about," said Ron Gidor, a spokesman.

Wild Thing's comment...........

The name alone is not conclusive proof of being a Jew. However it would be a delicious irony and the worst case of a self-hating Jew since Noam Chomsky.

If it turns out this is true and not just the name, then he has something in common with Hitler! And Reinhard Heydrich, the Head of the SS and the first INTERPOL chief was suspected of being part Jewish.

Iran Test-fires Missiles Amid Nuclear Tension

Iran says it test-fires the longest-range missiles in its arsenal, capable of carrying a warhead and striking Israel, U.S. bases in the Mideast, and parts of Europe.

Iran state television says the powerful Revolutionary Guard has fired one of the longest-range missiles in its arsenal in a third round of tests meant to demonstrate the country's preparedness for an attack. (Sept. 28)



Iran test-fired missiles on Sunday to show it was prepared to head off any military threat, four days before the Islamic Republic is due to hold rare talks with world powers worried about its nuclear ambitions.

The missile maneuvers coincide with escalating tension in Iran's nuclear row with the West, after last week's disclosure by Tehran that it is building a second uranium enrichment plant.

News of the nuclear facility south of Tehran added a sense of urgency to a crucial meeting in Geneva Thursday between Iranian officials and representatives of six major powers, including the United States.

Iran will be put "to the test" in Geneva and a move to sanctions would follow if the talks failed, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told CBS.

An Iranian official warned "fabricated Western clamor" over the new plant would negatively affect the talks at which the six powers want Iran to agree to open its facilities to inspection to prove its program is for power and not nuclear weapons.

Ali Asghar Soltanieh, Iran's envoy to the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog, said, referring to Western condemnation of the plant: "This ... approach will have a negative impact on Iran's negotiations with the 5+1 countries."
He has said Iran is arranging International Atomic Energy Agency inspections of the plant "in the very near future."
U.S. President Barack Obama said Saturday the discovery of the secret nuclear plant in Iran showed a "disturbing pattern" of evasion by Tehran. He warned Iran Friday it would face "sanctions that bite" if it did not come clean.

Earlier this month, Obama dropped a Bush-era plan to deploy missiles in Poland that had been proposed as a shield amid concerns Iran was trying to develop nuclear warheads it could mount on long-range missiles.

Iranian media said Revolutionary Guards launched at least two types of short-range missiles on the exercise's first day on Sunday in central Iran and tested a multiple missile launcher.

"For all those who ... might harbor dreams about undertaking military invasion against our nation and country, a message of this maneuver is firmness, destructiveness, real and endless resistance," Iranian General Hossein Salami, head of the Guards' air force, told state television.

Iranian media said medium-range Shahab 1 and 2 missiles, which officials say have a range of 300 and 500 km respectively, would be test-fired Sunday evening.

State radio said the Guards Monday would test-fire the Shahab 3 missile, which Iranian officials say has a range of around 2,000 km, potentially putting Israel and U.S. bases in the Gulf within reach. It was last tested in mid-2008.

Iran conducts war games or tests weapons to show its resolve to counter any attack by foes like Israel or the United States.

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who says any military action against Iran would only "buy time" and stresses the need for diplomacy, told CNN he hoped the disclosure of the second facility would force Tehran to make concessions

Neither the United States nor its ally Israel have ruled out military action if diplomacy fails to resolve the nuclear row.

US ships arrive in Israel ahead of joint drill

US Navy missile ships started arriving in Israel on Sunday ahead of next month’s joint missile defense exercise between the IDF and the American military’s European Command

Called Juniper Cobra, the exercise will include the Arrow missile defense system as well as three American systems - the THAAD, Aegis and PAC3 - that will all be deployed in Israel for the duration of the exercise


Iran test fired two types of long-range missiles on Monday, including the two-stage Sajil, state-run Press TV reported.

"We are still waiting for new reports about the missiles and whether they have hit the targets or not," Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami, Iran's air force commander, said on Press TV. "These are ... advanced long-range missiles and they were manufactured by the ... Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps."

He said the launches took place Monday morning.

Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps began a series of missile exercises Sunday to promote the armed forces' defense capabilities.

The tests, which are expected to conclude on Monday, are codenamed "Payghambar-e Azam 4" or "The Great Prophet 4," Press TV said.

If that is true, the missile brings Moscow, Athens, Israel and southern Italy within striking distance from Iran.

Iran's testing on Sunday included the Fateh-110, a short-range ground-to-ground missile, and Tondar-69, a short-range naval missile, the station said. Several models of medium-range Shahab missiles were tested at night, Press TV reporte

Wild Thing's comment......

This is VERY serious! sheesh Iran is really asking for it.

Fox News reported yesterday morning that Iran will next test the Shabib 3 missile within hours - 2,000k range (Israel within range)

New Iran Atom Facility Will Be Operational Soon and Sarkozy Did the American Citizens a Favor

F15 Israel


F16 Israel


New Iran Atom Facility Will Be Operational Soon


Iran's newly disclosed nuclear fuel facility will soon become operational, an aide to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quoted as saying on Saturday.

The statement came a day after U.S. President Barack Obama demanded that Iran come clean about its nuclear program or face "sanctions that bite" after the disclosure of the new uranium enrichment plant under construction south of Tehran.

"This new plant, God willing, will soon become operational and will make the enemies blind," Mohammad Mohammadi-Golpayegani, who heads Khamenei's office, said, according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.

Mohammadi-Golpayegani, a cleric, said the construction of the plant was a sign of Iran being at the "summit of power," Fars reported. He was speaking at a ceremony marking the start of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war.

Ahmadinejad: Israel wouldn't dare attack Iran

Meanwhile Friday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that Israel "will not dare attack Iran" and that if Israel does, "the Iranians can defend themselves."
"We are not concerned [about an Israeli attack]. Iran is a very big country. Much larger and bigger than what some people think and imagine," Ahmadinejad told a news conference.

Ahmadinejad's statement came hours after he said the United States, Britain and France would "regret" accusing Iran of hiding a nuclear fuel facility, saying it was not a secret site.

Ahmadinejad, speaking at a New York news conference, said Iran had informed the International Atomic Energy Agency early about the facility, which the Western leaders on Friday labeled a direct challenge to the international community.
"It's not a secret site. If it was, why would we have informed the IAEA about it a year ahead of time," Ahmadinejad said. "They [the United States, Britain and France] will regret this announcement."

The statement came after Ahmadinejad said Iran was not obliged to tell the Obama administration of every uranium enrichment plant it has, turning up the heat in a dispute over Tehran's nuclear program.

"This does not mean we must inform Mr. Obama's administration of every facility that we have," he told Time magazine in an interview when asked about Obama's charge that a nuclear fuel plant had been built secretly.
"We have no secrecy, we work within the framework of the IAEA," Ahmadinejad told Time in a reference to the UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Ahmadinejad's comments came after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the IAEA must investigate Iran's newly disclosed uranium enrichment plant and Tehran must take immediate steps to show its program is peaceful.

"This is now a clear challenge to the international community," Clinton told reporters in New York after Iran told the IAEA it had a second uranium enrichment plant under construction. The disclosure by Iran came just as six world powers and Iran prepare for rare talks on Oct. 1.
"This facility sharpens our sense of urgency and underscores Iran's absolute need to engage seriously with us on October 1 and take immediate steps to demonstrate the exclusively peaceful nature of their nuclear program," she said after a meeting with Belgium's foreign minister.
Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry released a statement following the revelation of the second plat, saying "In light of Iran's continuing deception, the international community must step up its demands that Iran halt its enrichment and reprocessing work."

Following the revelation of a second uranium enrichment plant in Iran, House Republican Whip Eric Cantor issued the following statement:

"Iran is a real-time security threat to the United States, Israel, and our allies around the world. A nuclear Iran is closer than many thought it was yesterday, and the problem is getting worse by the day, not better.

"The existence of a second uranium enrichment facility not only undercuts the Administration's policy toward Iran, but leaves little doubt that terrorist nations are not to be trusted or negotiated with diplomatically. Congress should act immediately to give the President the tools he needs to implement sanctions on Iran by passing the bipartisan Iran Refined Petroleum Sanctions Act."
House Republican Whip Eric Cantor issued a statement Friday saying Iran "is a real-time security threat to the United States, Israel, and our allies around the world. A nuclear Iran is closer than many thought it was yesterday, and the problem is getting worse by the day, not better."
Cantor added, "The existence of a second uranium enrichment facility not only undercuts the Administration's policy toward Iran, but leaves little doubt that terrorist nations are not to be trusted or negotiated with diplomatically."

Russia: Revelation of Iranian facility disturbing

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Friday urged Iran to prove it is not seeking to develop atomic weapons, stepping up pressure on Tehran and signaling increased solidarity with Western nations determined to rein in its nuclear program.

Medvedev said revelations that Iran has secretly been building a uranium-enrichment plant raised serious concerns, and demanded Tehran come to the table at an international meeting next week with a cooperative attitude and evidence of peaceful intentions.

"We are counting on Iran - particularly in light of the newly revealed information about the construction of a new enrichment plant - to provide convincing evidence of its intention to seek to develop nuclear energy with purely peaceful aims," Medvedev said in the statement.

His remarks, in a statement released during a G-20 summit overshadowed by worries over Iran, added to indications that Russia could support tougher sanctions if Tehran fails to comply with demands it come clean and halt uranium enrichment. But Medvedev did not mention sanctions or any other consequences Iran could face if it refuses to fall in line.

Medvedev said the undeclared construction of an enrichment facility flies in the face of UN Security Council demands for Iran to stop uranium enrichment at its only declared enrichment facility. He suggested the UN nuclear agency should take steps immediately to investigate the second site and called for Iran's full cooperation with the probe.

"The revelation about the construction of a second facility only strengthens our determination to achieve concrete and verifiable results in the years-long international efforts for clarity on Iran's nuclear program and its goals," Medvedev said.

Medvedev's new tone may raise U.S. hopes for a significant shift in Russia's stance on Iran. But Moscow may not go far beyond sanctions - and may again use its clout to ensure the punitive measures aren't too strong for its tastes.

Russia will only approve anctions that stop short of economic warfare or a military solution, Sergei Karaganov, Kremlin-connected head of the Council for Foreign and Defense Policy, an advisory body, said in an interview with The Associated Press.

Medvedev stressed that Russia is committed to a serious dialogue with Iran and the meeting is a chance for Tehran to show it is determined to seek a negotiated solution to the dispute over its nuclear program - another hint that Moscow could support new sanctions if that doesn't happen.

China responded to news of the secret neactor by saying that they hope Iran "will cooperate with the IAEA on this matter."

Egypt warns of Mideast nuclear arms race

Egypt's foreign minister is warning that a nuclear-capable Israel and an Iran pursuing nuclear weapons could trigger a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.

Ahmed Aboul Gheit said in an interview Friday with the Associated Press that Iran has a right to the peaceful use of nuclear energy but it must be verified by the UN nuclear agency.

If the existence of a new uranium plant was kept secret, he said, that would shed doubts on the credibility of Iran's claim that its nuclear program was purely peaceful.
Aboul Gheit said Israel is assumed to possess nuclear weapons, and if Iran is also acquiring a nuclear capability many countries in the Middle East would be uneasy, triggering an arms race.
In the case of Iran, Aboul Gheit said, "one has to verify ? is it a peaceful nuclear effort or (if) it has an objective beyond."
"If it has an objective beyond, of course, Egypt very much objects to the introduction of nuclear weapons to this part of the world," he said.
"I hope that we would manage to verify that the Iranians are not going nuclear militarily," he said.

Aboul Gheit recalled that Egypt and Iran started pressing for the Middle East to be a nuclear weapons-free zone in 1974, and the two countries presented draft resolutions to the U.N. General Assembly for years calling for the establishment of such a zone.

If it turns out "that there is a military component for that Iranian nuclear project, then that would complicate very much the situation in the Middle East," he said.

Asked whether Iran's suspected nuclear ambitions and Israel's suspected nuclear arsenal could trigger an arms race by other countries in the Middle East to get nuclear weapons, in spite of calls for a nuclear weapons-free zone, Aboul Gheit replied: "Yes, and I'm of that view."

"Why is it so?," he asked. "Because if we have, what we assume a nuclear capable Israel and if we see that Iran is also ... acquiring a nuclear capability, then we would have two players in that part of the world, one on the Mediterranean, Israel, and the other on the (Persian) Gulf."
"So you would see, and you would find that you have a land mass of Arab countries and Arab people that do not feel at ease with that setting," Aboul Gheit said. "I would feel that the Turks would also be uneasy like a country like Egypt."

Big Government


“We must never stop until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of the earth.”


“We live in the real world, not the virtual world. And the real world expects us to take decisions.” The rest of Sarkozy’s remarks were, well, remarkable:
“President Obama dreams of a world without weapons … but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.
“Iran since 2005 has flouted five security council resolutions. North Korea has been defying council resolutions since 1993.
“I support the extended hand of the Americans, but what good has proposals for dialogue brought the international community? More uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe a UN member state off the map,” he continued, referring to Israel.
The sharp-tongued French leader even implied that Mr Obama’s resolution 1887 had used up valuable diplomatic energy.
“If we have courage to impose sanctions together it will lend viability to our commitment to reduce our own weapons and to making a world without nuke weapons,” he said.

Mr Sarkozy has previously called the US president’s disarmament crusade “naive.”


Wild Thing's comment.......

And obama just cut our Missile Defense. There is no-way he can blame that one on former President Bush. obama is intentionally weakening America.

Obama is the first anti-Israel President, check that, second, Carter being the first, is a disgrace!

Thank you Sarkozy!!!!

Obama is living in his very own “virtual word”.

You know it is really bad when other countries are tougher then the United States.

Iranian Militias Marry, Rape Virgin Prisoners Before Executions

Members of Iran's Basij paramilitary force on parade in Tehran. A reputed militia member said prison guards in Iran marry and rape female virgins the night before their executions.

Iranian Militias Marry, Rape Virgin Prisoners Before Executions

FOX News

Members of Iran's feared Basij militia forcibly marry female virgin prisoners the night before scheduled executions, raping their new "wives" and making it religiously acceptable to execute them, a self-professed member of the paramilitary group said.
The anonymous militiaman told the Jerusalem Post that at age 18 he was "given the 'honor' to temporarily marry young girls before they were sentenced to death."

In the Islamic Republic of Iran it is illegal to execute a woman if she is a virgin, the former guard told the newspaper. So the government arranges "wedding" ceremonies to be conducted the night before executions, and prisoners are forced to have sexual intercourse with a guard.

Raped by her new "husband," a female prisoner is now fit to be put to death.

"I regret that, even though the marriages were legal," said the militiaman, who told the Jerusalem Post he had just been released from prison himself after freeing two teenagers rounded up during post-election protests.

Some of the prisoners in his care were drugged with sleeping pills to make them docile, as the girls in their custody always fought back, he said, fearing the night of the rape more deeply than their executions the following day.

"I remember hearing them cry and scream after the rape was over," he told the paper. "I will never forget how this one girl clawed at her own face and neck with her finger nails afterwards. She had deep scratches all over her."

" I wed Iranian girls before execution"

The Jerusalem Post

In a shocking and unprecedented interview, directly exposing the inhumanity of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's religious regime in Iran, a serving member of the paramilitary Basiji militia has told this reporter of his role in suppressing opposition street protests in recent weeks.

He has also detailed aspects of his earlier service in the force, including his enforced participation in the rape of young Iranian girls prior to their execution.

The interview took place by telephone, and on condition of anonymity. It was arranged by a reliable source whose identity can also not be revealed.

Founded by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in 1979 as a "people's militia," the volunteer Basiji force is subordinate to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and intensely loyal to Khomeini's successor, Khamenei.

The Basiji member, who is married with children, spoke soon after his release by the Iranian authorities from detention. He had been held for the "crime" of having set free two Iranian teenagers - a 13-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl - who had been arrested during the disturbances that have followed the disputed June presidential elections.

"There have been many other police and members of the security forces arrested because they have shown leniency toward the protesters out on the streets, or released them from custody without consulting our superiors," he said.

When he was 16, "my mother took me to a Basiji station and begged them to take me under their wing because I had no one and nothing foreseeable in my future. My father was martyred during the war in Iraq and she did not want me to get hooked on drugs and become a street thug. I had no choice," he said.

He said he had been a highly regarded member of the force, and had so "impressed my superiors" that, at 18, "I was given the 'honor' to temporarily marry young girls before they were sentenced to death."

In the Islamic Republic it is illegal to execute a young woman, regardless of her crime, if she is a virgin, he explained. Therefore a "wedding" ceremony is conducted the night before the execution: The young girl is forced to have sexual intercourse with a prison guard - essentially raped by her "husband."

"I regret that, even though the marriages were legal," he said.

Why the regret, if the marriages were "legal?"

"Because," he went on, "I could tell that the girls were more afraid of their 'wedding' night than of the execution that awaited them in the morning. And they would always fight back, so we would have to put sleeping pills in their food. By morning the girls would have an empty expression; it seemed like they were ready or wanted to die.
"I remember hearing them cry and scream after [the rape] was over," he said. "I will never forget how this one girl clawed at her own face and neck with her finger nails afterwards. She had deep scratches all over her."
Returning to the events of the last few weeks, and his decision to set free the two teenage detainees, he said he "honestly" did not know why he had released them, a decision that led to his own arrest, "but I think it was because they were so young. They looked like children and I knew what would happen to them if they weren't released."
He said that while a man is deemed "responsible for his own actions at 13, for a woman it is 9," and that it was freeing the 15-year-old girl that "really got me in trouble.
"I was not mistreated or really interrogated while being detained," he said. "I was put in a tiny room and left alone. It was hard being isolated, so I spent most of my time praying and thinking about my wife and kids."

Iran Closer to Having Nuclear Bomb

'Germany believes Iran could have nuclear bomb within 6 months'

Iran is capable of assembling an atomic bomb within six months, German intelligence analysts told the German weekly newsmagazine Stern.

"If they want to, they will be able to set off a uranium bomb within six months," an analyst with Germany's intelligence service, Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), told the magazine.
German intelligence officials told Stern believe Iran has "mastered" every stage of uranium enrichment and that they have activated enough centrifuges to produce sufficient quantities of weapons-grade uranium for at least one atomic bomb.
"Nobody would have thought this possible some years ago," an intelligence official told Stern.

The UN Security Council has imposed three sets of sanctions on Tehran for defying its demands to suspend uranium enrichment.

Israeli navy in Suez Canal prepares for potential attack on Iran

Times Online.co.uk

Two Israeli missile class warships have sailed through the Suez Canal ten days after a submarine capable of launching a nuclear missile strike, in preparation for a possible attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

The deployment into the Red Sea, confirmed by Israeli officials, was a clear signal that Israel was able to put its strike force within range of Iran at short notice. It came before long-range exercises by the Israeli air force in America later this month and the test of a missile defence shield at a US missile range in the Pacific Ocean.

Israel has strengthened ties with Arab nations who also fear a nuclear-armed Iran. In particular, relations with Egypt have grown increasingly strong this year over the “shared mutual distrust of Iran”, according to one Israeli diplomat. Israeli naval vessels would likely pass through the Suez Canal for an Iranian strike.

“This is preparation that should be taken seriously. Israel is investing time in preparing itself for the complexity of an attack on Iran. These manoeuvres are a message to Iran that Israel will follow up on its threats,” an Israeli defence official said.

It is believed that Israel’s missile-equipped submarines, and its fleet of advanced aircraft, could be used to strike at in excess of a dozen nuclear-related targets more than 800 miles from Israel.

“It is not by chance that Israel is drilling long-range manoeuvres in a public way. This is not a secret operation. This is something that has been published and which will showcase Israel’s abilities,” said an Israeli defence official.

He added that in the past, Israel had run a number of covert long-range drills. A year ago, Israeli jets flew over Greece in one such drill, while in May, reports surfaced that Israeli air force aircraft were staging exercises over Gibraltar. An Israeli attack on a weapons convoy in Sudan bound for militants in the Gaza Strip earlier this year was also seen as a rehearsal for hitting moving convoys.

The exercises come at a time when Western diplomats are offering support for an Israeli strike on Iran in return for Israeli concessions on the formation of a Palestinian state.

If agreed it would make an Israeli strike on Iran realistic “within the year” said one British official.

Diplomats said that Israel had offered concessions on settlement policy, Palestinian land claims and issues with neighboring Arab states, to facilitate a possible strike on Iran.

“Israel has chosen to place the Iranian threat over its settlements,” said a senior European diplomat.

Iran: Online newspaper says 100s of slain protesters are in morgues

The on-line Farsi-language newspaper, Nooroz, reports that hundreds of unidentified dead bodies are being held in Tehran's morgues. One of the few official organs providing information on the detainees is the office of unidentified dead persons, which has summoned some families to various morgues around the city to determine whether their loved ones are among the dead. Nooroz newspaper reports that those families, who find their sons or daughters among the countless corpses, are threatened and pressured into signing statements attesting that their family members died in car crashes or as a result of other ordinary, run of the mill accidents. Unless the families sign these statements, the cherished bodies of their loved ones are withheld from them.

One person who reportedly visited the morgue in south-west Tehran [which in the past had been used only for the storage of fruits and dairy products]reports to Nooroz that she was presented with an album containing hundreds of pictures of the dead and was told to try and find her child among these images. This woman reports that, as she was leaving the morgue, she saw hundreds of dead bodies piled on top of one another.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Obama will say go ahead. I cannot believe the times we are living in. It is frightening.

This might sound crazy but just in case something does happen with Israel and Iran, fill the gas tanks and don't forget to have a survival kit packed and ready. You just don't know what is going to blow; it could be volcanoes, quakes, power shortages, or bad weather....because if it is nuclear is what I am thinking about.

It’s only a matter of time. Another article said that Israel has it that Egypt is cooperating, and Saudi Arabia has given Israel a Red Sea base from which to launch an attack, and overflight rights over Saudi territory into the Persian Gulf. This would allow Israel to avoid having to ask Obama for overflight permission in Iraq — which he would never grant.

There is also this:

Preparations for Attack on Iran Almost Complete

Israel has decided to go ahead. Taking into account political, geopolitical, military preparedness, and climatic conditions, there are two windows: between July 21 and 24 and between August 6 and 8. Advance teams comprised of Mossad agents and military personnel are already on the ground in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Iraq (including in the Kurdish lands, adjacent to Turkey).

Clinton Urged Obama To Talk Tough On Iran

Clinton urged Obama to talk tough on Iran

The Washington Times

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton urged President Obama for two days to toughen his language on Iran before he did so, and then was surprised when he condemned Iran's crackdown on demonstrators last week, administration officials say.

At his June 23 news conference, Mr. Obama said he was "appalled and outraged" by Iranian behavior and "strongly condemned" the violence against anti-government demonstrators. Up until then, Mr. Obama and other administration officials had taken a softer line, expressing "deep concern" about the situation and calling on Iran to "respect the dignity of its own people."

Behind the scenes, the officials, who spoke on the condition that they not be named because they were discussing internal deliberations, said Mrs. Clinton had been advocating the stronger U.S. response, but the president resisted. When he finally took her advice, the aides said, he did so without informing her first.

This was the first known example of awkwardness between the two former rivals for the Democratic nomination for president since they made up following Mr. Obama's election. The disagreement also gave some insight into the Obama administration's foreign policy decision-making process five months into its term.

" I am the President of the United Sates" Obama Give Horrible Press Conference LOL

Obama's Testy Press Conference



President Obama's Tuesday press conference was moved inside to the Brady Briefing Room, rather than the Rose Garden ... as previously planned, the White House announced in a release.

The reason why it was moved inside:

in the Rose Garden, POTUS might have sweated in the summer humidity. Oh, and the press corps would be baking in the heat.

Iran Unrest Reveals Split In U.S. on Its Role Abroad

The Washington Post
But Obama’s shades-of-gray approach rejects comparison to an era when Communist bloc dissidents had virtually no access to the Western media and the world was more neatly divided between a pair of superpowers, not complicated by the set of ambitious regional powers such as Iran that the Obama administration is seeking to manage.

Since taking office, Obama has argued that reclaiming America’s moral authority by ending torture and closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay provides essential diplomatic leverage to influence events in such strategic parts of the world as the Middle East and Central Asia. The speech he delivered to the Islamic world in Cairo eights days before the June 12 Iranian election sought to do that by providing what the president saw as an unvarnished accounting of U.S. policy in Iran, Iraq, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“We’re trying to promote a foreign policy that advances our interests, not that makes us feel good about ourselves,” said a senior administration official who, like others, declined to be identified, citing the sensitivity of the issue.

Obama’s approach to Iran, including his assertion that the unrest there represents a debate among Iranians unrelated to the United States, is an acknowledgment that a U.S. president’s words have a limited ability to alter foreign events in real time and could do more harm than good. But privately Obama advisers are crediting his Cairo speech for inspiring the protesters, especially the young ones, who are now posing the most direct challenge to the republic’s Islamic authority in its 30-year history.

Regarding the video LMAO Obama is ticked and I am loving it. Major Garrett: What took you so long? LOL Whoa!

The Obama Effect

The Obama effect

Caroline Glick

"Could there be something to all the talk of an Obama effect, after all? A stealth effect, perhaps?"

So asked Helene Cooper, the New York Times' diplomatic correspondent in a news analysis of the massive anti-regime protests in Iran published in Sunday's Times.

It took US President Barack Obama eight days to issue a clear statement of support for the millions of pro-freedom demonstrators throughout Iran risking their lives to oppose the tyranny of the mullahs. And after eight days of vacillating and hedging his bets and so effectively supporting Iranian dictator Ali Khamenei against the multitudes rallying in the streets, Obama's much awaited statement was not particularly forceful.

He offered no American support of any kind for the protesters. Indeed, it is hard to say that in making his statement, the American president was speaking primarily as an American.

He warned the likes of Khamenei and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose goons are currently under orders to beat, arrest and murder protesters, that "the world is watching... If the Iranian government seeks the respect of the international community, it must respect the dignity of its own people and govern through consent, not coercion."

According to several prominent Western bloggers with direct ties to the protesters, Obama's statement left the Iranians underwhelmed and angry.

THE MOST IMPORTANT repercussion of the US media's propagandistic reporting is that the American public is denied the ability to understand events as they unfold. Take for instance The New York Times' write-up of Khamenei's sermon this past Friday in which he effectively declared war on the protesters. As Russell Berman pointed out in the Telos blog on Saturday, the Times' write-up was misleadingly selective.

The Times did not mention that Khamenei ascribed world events to a Zionist conspiracy which he believes controls the US. It similarly failed to mention his long rant against the US for the FBI's 1993 raid on David Koresh's Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas.

Had the Times - and other major media outlets - properly reported Khamenei's speech, they would have made clear to their readers that he is not a rational thinker. His view of world events is deeply distorted by his hatreds and prejudices and paranoia.

But then, if Times readers were permitted to know just how demented Khamenei's views of the world are, they might come to the conclusion that Obama's intense desire to sit down with him, and his constant pandering to Iran's "supreme leader" are ill-advised and counterproductive. They might come to the conclusion that it is impossible to achieve a meeting of the minds with a man who calls Americans "morons" and leads his subordinate government officials in chants of "Death to America," "Death to Britain" and "Death to Israel."


What they fail to consider is that by genuflecting to tyrants, Obama has made the US an international laughingstock. Far from sharing their adulation of Obama and his cool demeanor, most of the nations of the world believe that the US has abandoned its leadership role. And unlike the US media, they realize that America has no understudy.

Unfortunately, unless the Obama effect wears off soon, by the time the American people become aware of this fact it may be too late to make a difference.


Wild Thing's comment..........

As people around the world wake up to the Obama reality, we will see more and more disgust in how despicable he is and a disgrace to America. Maybe one day the ignominious Obama will be called out by our leftist media that is if they have any love at all
for the country whose soil they claim as theirs.

When will it end where treason is allowed to flourish as it does in our country.How much more can our country take of this happening. Hanoi Jane, John give me a purple heart for this paper cut Kerry, Jimmy Carter, Code Pink giving a check for $600,000 to the al-Qaeda, and others. Jimmy Carter is tramping around with his terrorist friends daily bashing our country and our military. Obama stone silent about the attack at the Recruiting office killing a solider and wounding another as he is their CIC for God's sake.

Actions and non action both have consequences and we are all at the mercy ( which is none) of an insane, hate filled, American hating wanna be dictator. If I was going again to Europe today or anywhere out of our country, I swear I would want to wear a t-shirt or carry a sign saying Obama is NOT my president!

Obama Cold Blooded on Iran, Capt.Taken Hostage and Economy

Obama golfs after 30 minute meeting with foreign policy advisers on Iran

Barack Obama steers the cart with his golfing partner, Vice President Joe Biden, left, as they finish 18 holes at the Fort Belvoir Golf Club together on Father's Day, Sunday, June 21, 2009.



U.S. President Barack Obama expressed concern about violence and "unjust actions" against Iranian demonstrators on Sunday in a meeting with advisers who updated him on fast-moving events in the Islamic Republic.

"At approximately noon today, the President met for more than 30 minutes in the Oval Office with foreign policy advisors to get an update on the current situation and developments in Iran," a White House aide said in an email.
"At the meeting, the president reiterated his concerns about violence and unjust actions being taken against the Iranian people."

Obama's comments echoed a longer statement he released on Saturday urging the Iranian government to cease violent actions against its own people. Unrest has convulsed Iran for days since a disputed June 12 election that returned hardline anti-Western President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power.

Gunfire rang out in Tehran on Sunday after demonstrations culminated in the death of at least 10 people on Saturday. Iranian authorities dismissed the protesters as "terrorists" and rioters.

Ahmadinejad warned the United States and Britain on Saturday not to interfere in Iran's affairs, according to Iran's official ISNA news agency.

"The president of the United States is supposed to lead the free world, not follow it," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Sunday. "He's been timid and passive more than I would like."

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said a slow or muted U.S. response risks undermining the aspirations of Iranian voters to change or question their government.
"If America stands for democracy and all of these demonstrations are going on in Tehran and other cities over there, and people don't think that we really care, then obviously they're going to question, 'Do we really believe in our principles?'" Grassley said

Obama is a degenerate , his cold heart and icy blood in his veins make it easy for him to go golfing while all that is happening in Iran.

Remember how he laughed when asked about the economy and was even asked if he was on drugs I think the interviewer.

Remember how Obama ducks question on terrorists (pirates) and Capt. taken hostage? He also had the reporter removed abruptly from the room afterward.

What a Difference Obama vs.Netanyahu and President Bush


Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu came out in favor of the student demonstrators in Iran. Netanyahu says he doesn't know what the outcome of the protests in Iran will be.

Regarding the protests

MR. GREGORY: This is an unfolding story that we’ve been seeing all week long. The images from the streets are disturbing, you have a violent crackdown under way in Iran. What does your intelligence in Israel tell you about the weakness, the nature of the Iranian regime today?

MR. NETANYAHU: Well, it’s not my intelligence, but my common sense and the traditional sense. Obviously, you see a regime that represses its own people and spreads terror far and wide. It is a, a regime whose real nature has been unmasked, and it’s been unmasked by incredible acts of courage by Iran’s citizens. They, they go into the streets, they face bullets. And I tell you, as somebody who believes deeply in democracy, that you see the Iranian lack of democracy at work. And I think this better explains and best explains to the entire world what this regime is truly about.

MR. GREGORY: I ask about your intelligence services as well in terms of what hard information you have about what’s going on inside the regime.

MR. NETANYAHU: I don’t know if anyone really knows, and I cannot tell you how this thing will end up. I think something very deep, very fundamental is going on, and there’s an expression of a deep desire amid the people of Iran for freedom, certainly for greater freedom. But perhaps the word is a simple one, freedom. This is what is going on. You don’t need all the intelligence apparatus that modern states have to see something when it faces you right away. It, it’s facing you in–it’s staring us in the face, there’s no question about that.

MR. GREGORY: You know there’s been quite a debate here in the United States and really around the world about what President Obama should do and should say at a moment like this. He has said over the weekend that these are unjust actions, that the whole world is watching, that Iran should not violently crack down on its people. Has he said and done enough, do you think?

MR. NETANYAHU: I’m not going to second-guess the president of the United States. I know President Obama wants the people of Iran to be free. He said as much in his seminal speech in Cairo before the Muslim world. I’ve spoken to him a number of times on this subject, there’s no question we’d all like to see a different, a different Iran with different policies. Remember, this is a regime that not only represses its own people–Sakharov said, Andrei Sakharov, the great Russian scientist and humanist, said that a regime that oppresses its own people sooner or later will oppress its neighbors. And certainly Iran has been doing that. It’s been calling for the, the denial of the Holocaust. It’s threatening to wipe Israel off the map. It’s pursuing nuclear weapons. To that effect it’s sponsoring terror against us, but throughout the world. So I think what everybody would like to see is a change in policy, and the change of policy is both outside and inside.

On the Iranian nuclear threat:


Realism on Iran? It's Called Freedom

Presidents dealing with foreign uprisings are haunted by two historical precedents. The first is Hungary in 1956, in which Radio Free Europe encouraged an armed revolt against Soviet occupation -- a revolt that America had no capability or intention of materially supporting. In the contest of Molotov cocktails vs. tanks, about 2,500 revolutionaries died; 1,200 were later executed.

The second precedent is Ukraine in 1991, where the forces that eventually destroyed the Soviet Union were collecting. President George H.W. Bush visited that Soviet republic a month before its scheduled vote on independence. Instead of siding with Ukrainian aspirations, he gave a speech that warned against "suicidal nationalism" and a "hopeless course of isolation." William Safire dubbed it the "chicken Kiev" speech, which fit and stuck. The first Bush administration was so frightened of geopolitical instability that it managed to play down American ideals while missing a strategic opportunity.

In President Obama's snail-mail response to Iran's Twitter revolution, he has tended toward the chicken Kiev model. Which should not be surprising. During the presidential campaign, Obama summarized his approach to foreign affairs: "It's an argument between ideology and foreign-policy realism. I have enormous sympathy for the foreign policy of George H.W. Bush." Such "realism" has translated into criticism of the Iranian regime that began as pathetic and progressed to mild. The intention seems obvious -- to criticize just enough to avoid appearing cynical, but not so much as to undermine the possibility of engagement with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the mullahs.


Obama could, instead, have harshly criticized the regime thugs on motorbikes for breaking the heads of women and youth during protests, and he could have led the world in condemning Internet censorship and the arrest of dissidents. Instead of critiquing Iran's political processes, he could have spoken for human rights with firmness and clarity.

Once again, those who sneer that elections in the broader Middle East are unimportant -- because democracy is more than elections -- have gotten it wrong. An election, as in Iran, can be more than a poll; it can be a fuse. These elections not only summarized Iranian discontent but galvanized it. The resentments of women treated by clerics as children, of a middle class struggling in a failing economy and of sophisticated citizens ruled by a president both dangerous and clownish don't seem likely to fade on their own. These reformers will do lethal damage to the regime -- or they will be violently repressed by the regime, which has cut the Internet and banned the news media, the ritual preparations for a bloodbath.

Bush was right!
2005 President George W Bush on the first anniversary of the US handover of power to Iraqis.

Some of the violence you see in Iraq is being carried out by ruthless killers who are converging on Iraq to fight the advance of peace and freedom.

Our military reports that we have killed or captured hundreds of foreign fighters in Iraq who have come from Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, Egypt, Sudan, Yemen, Libya and other nations.

They are making common cause with criminal elements, Iraqi insurgents, and remnants of Saddam Hussein's regime who want to restore the old order.

They fight because they know that the survival of their hateful ideology is at stake.

They know that as freedom takes root in Iraq, it will inspire millions across the Middle East to claim their liberty as well.

And when the Middle East grows in democracy, prosperity, and hope, the terrorists will lose their sponsors, lose their recruits, and lose their hopes for turning that region into a base for attacks on America and our allies around the world.

2008 Bush's Knesset Speech

Sixty years ago in Tel Aviv, David Ben-Gurion proclaimed Israel's independence, founded on the "natural right of the Jewish people to be masters of their own fate." What followed was more than the establishment of a new country. It was the redemption of an ancient promise given to Abraham, Moses, and David – a homeland for the chosen people in Eretz Yisrael.
Eleven minutes later, on the orders of President Harry Truman, the United States was proud to be the first nation to recognize Israel's independence. And on this landmark anniversary, America is proud to be Israel's closest ally and best friend in the world.
The alliance between our governments is unbreakable, yet the source of our friendship runs deeper than any treaty. It is grounded in the shared spirit of our people, the bonds of the Book, the ties of the soul. When William Bradford stepped off the Mayflower in 1620, he quoted the words of Jeremiah: "Come let us declare in Zion the word of God." The founders of my country saw a new promised land and bestowed upon their towns names like Bethlehem and New Canaan. And in time, many Americans became passionate advocates for a Jewish state.


Some people suggest that if the United States would just break ties with Israel, all our problems in the Middle East would go away.
This is a tired argument that buys into the propaganda of our enemies, and America rejects it utterly.
Israel's population may be just over 7 million. But when you confront terror and evil, you are 307 million strong, because America stands with you.
America stands with you in breaking up terrorist networks and denying the extremists sanctuary.
And America stands with you in firmly opposing Iran's nuclear weapons ambitions. Permitting the world's leading sponsor of terror to possess the world's deadliest weapon would be an unforgivable betrayal of future generations. For the sake of peace, the world must not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon.
Ultimately, to prevail in this struggle, we must offer an alternative to the ideology of the extremists by extending our vision of justice and tolerance, freedom and hope.
These values are the self-evident right of all people, of all religions, in all of the world because they are a gift from Almighty God.
Securing these rights is also the surest way to secure peace.
Leaders who are accountable to their people will not pursue endless confrontation and bloodshed.
Young people with a place in their society and a voice in their future are less likely to search for meaning in radicalism. And societies where citizens can express their conscience and worship their God will not export violence, they will be partners for peace.
This fundamental insight, that freedom yields peace, is the great lesson of the 20th century.
Now our task is to apply it in the 21st.
Nowhere is this work more urgent than here in the Middle East.
We must stand with the reformers working to break the old patterns of tyranny and despair.
We must give voice to the millions of ordinary people who dream of a better life in freedom.
We must confront the moral relativism that views all forms of government as equally acceptable and thereby consigns whole societies to slavery.
Above all, we must have faith in our values and ourselves and confidently pursue the expansion of liberty as the path to a peaceful future.
That future will be a dramatic departure from the Middle East of today.

"To the people of Iran: You are rich in culture and talent. You have a right to live under a government that listens to your wishes, respects your talents, and allows you to build better lives for your families. Unfortunately, your government denies you these opportunities, and threatens the peace and stability of your neighbors. So we call on the regime in Tehran to heed your will, and to make itself accountable to you. The day will come when the people of Iran have a government that embraces liberty and justice, and Iran joins the community of free nations. And when that good day comes, you will have no better friend than the United States of America." - President George W. Bush, January 13, 2008.


Wild Thing's comment........

Netanyahu is masterful - he's everything the bumbling Obama is not (and note how he gracefully refuses to second guess the President of the United States).

Bush was right in the things he said too.

There is such a tremendous difference between Obama and these two REAL MEN. Leaders both , Bush and Netanyahu compared to the likes of Obama that can't form a complete thought without his teleprompter and hates the very country he is the leader of as he goes about his agenda to destroy it.

Netanyahu and Bush lift their countries up with respect and love and want it to be the best as well as it's citizens. Obama travels around the world and apologizes for America and compalins about America on foreign soil. Obama must cringe to see people willing to protest for freedom at risk of their lives as we see in Iran. Just as he cannot understand the heart and soul of our Veterans and our military the whole freedom thing are just words to him to use in a speech.

Here is a quote below that says it better then I could. We will NEVER forget!

Thank you Scott

"We make a few simple points about the events transpiring over the past week in Iran. The Iranian regime is an evil tyranny. It supports terrorists and terrorism. The United States has a debt of honor to settle with it for the kidnapping and mistreatment of American hostages thirty years ago. That disgrace is not simply a matter of history. It is a disgrace in which Iran's execrable president personally participated. We remember.
The Iranian regime is responsible for the maiming and murder of many Americans and others who have been made its victims. The overthrow of the regime would be well deserved. We support the brave protesters who have taken to the streets of Iran to express their opposition to the regime and we wish them success in their endeavors."

Mullahs Supporter Obama a Week Late Has Press Release~ Damage Control Failed

Maybe Obama's next statement will quote Mohammad or the Koran. With his obvioius hate for Israel and Jews and his being pro Hamas and PLO it's possible . ~ Wild Thing

Wild Thing's comment........

"As I said in Cairo,".....

It is ALWAYS about him! Narcissistic piece o'crap. What an arrogant ass. He thinks every speech he gives is the Sermon on the Mount.

His teleprompter must be broken he did not make the statement on camera on a press release, probably written by one of his flunkies. If he really believed in this statement, he would be before cameras saying it. One thing we know about him that he loves to hear himself talk and loves the camera.

This statement is political BS, typed up by an aide in his office. IMO

LMAO, Does the haloed one think the mullahs give a flying fig newton what Martin Luther King said. Oh pleazzzzzeee.

The universal rights to assembly and free speech must be respected, and the United States stands with all who seek to exercise those rights. ...it must respect the dignity of its own people and govern through consent, not coercion.

Remember these words the next time Obama and his administration disses Limbaugh, Tea Parties, and "extremist right-wing veterans."

Obama is a week late. He has no moral standing now to make any statement on liberty and freedom. It is clear that political pressure is why he is making this statement.

Obama's Friends the Palestinian Hamas Members in Iran To Crush Dissenters

Iranian protesters after the helicopters released some sort of chemical liquid.

'Hamas helping Iran crush dissent'

J Post

Palestinian Hamas members are helping the Iranian authorities crush street protests in support of reformist presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi, two protesters.

They made their allegations as rioting on a scale unseen in Iran for nearly a decade continued in the wake of the elections and the allegations that the results were falsified. The protests have now spread from Teheran to other major cities.

Mousavi insisted on Tuesday that he would "protect" his supporters' votes "at all cost, even if I am at risk."

Shouting from a car roof to a roaring crowd of supporters, he declared: "The pillars of the revolution have been shaken... We must not be silent."

Hamas formally welcomed incumbent Ahmadinejad's ostensible reelection victory on Saturday. The Palestinian Islamist movement receives arms and funding from Iran, and its members have often received training there, including in terror tactics and weapons manufacture.

The most important thing that I believe people outside of Iran should be aware of," the young man went on, "is the participation of Palestinian forces in these riots."
Another protester, who spoke as he carried a kitchen knife in one hand and a stone in the other, also cited the presence of Hamas in Teheran.
On Monday, he said, "my brother had his ribs beaten in by those Palestinian animals. Taking our people's money is not enough, they are thirsty for our blood too."

It was ironic, this man said, that the victorious Ahmadinejad "tells us to pray for the young Palestinians, suffering at the hands of Israel." His hope, he added, was that Israel would "come to its senses" and ruthlessly deal with the Palestinians.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Good grief, chemical spray, this is so horrible!

And regarding the article there are a couple of things about this I find interesting. First I wonder if this might be why the pro Muslim Obama held off for a week before his press release so called statement. He got campaign funding from the Palestinian Hamas and also told them not to worry about what BiBi said in his speech last Sunday.

The other thing is this statement.....from one of the Iranian students.......

"His hope, he added, was that Israel would "come to its senses" and ruthlessly deal with the Palestinians."

Not that he is pro Israel but isn't it interesting what he said. He is going against what his dictator Ahmadinejad would allow him to say we can bet on that. And my guess he would even be killed for any kind of support for Israel in any way.

That would really be something if they saw how they have been lied to about Israel. And that Israel is not the bad guy. That is a dream I know and absolutely NOT what is going on.

This is about their vote being counted!!!

Obama Silent ~ 3AM Phone Turned Off ~ Obama is Carter on Steriods

***** CNN: At least 19 people died in unrest Saturday Tehran,sources at one hospital. Unconfirmed reports put the death toll at 150 dead.*****

H/T Atlas Shrugs

And what do they hear from the president of the United States? Silence. Then, worse. Three days in, the president makes clear his policy: continued "dialogue" with their clerical masters.
Dialogue with a regime that is breaking heads, shooting demonstrators, expelling journalists, arresting activists. Engagement with — which inevitably confers legitimacy upon — leaders elected in a process that begins as a sham (only four handpicked candidates permitted out of 476) and ends in overt rigging. (Krauthammer)


Iran, Tehran: wounded girl dying in front of camera

Hope And Change — But Not For Iran


Millions of Iranians take to the streets to defy a theocratic dictatorship that, among its other finer qualities, is a self-declared enemy of America and the tolerance and liberties it represents. The demonstrators are fighting on their own, but they await just a word that America is on their side.

And what do they hear from the president of the United States? Silence. Then, worse. Three days in, the president makes clear his policy: continued "dialogue" with their clerical masters.

Dialogue with a regime that is breaking heads, shooting demonstrators, expelling journalists, arresting activists. Engagement with — which inevitably confers legitimacy upon — leaders elected in a process that begins as a sham (only four handpicked candidates permitted out of 476) and ends in overt rigging.

Then, after treating this popular revolution as an inconvenience to the real business of Obama-Khamenei negotiations, the president speaks favorably of "some initial reaction from the Supreme Leader that indicates he understands the Iranian people have deep concerns about the election."

Where to begin? "Supreme Leader"? Note the abject solicitousness with which the American president confers this honorific on a clerical dictator who, even as his minions attack demonstrators, offers to examine some returns in some electoral districts — a farcical fix that will do nothing to alter the fraudulence of the election.

Moreover, this incipient revolution is no longer about the election.

Obama totally misses the point. The election allowed the political space and provided the spark for the eruption of anti-regime fervor that has been simmering for years and awaiting its moment. But people aren't dying in the street because they want a recount of hanging chads in suburban Isfahan.

They want to bring down the tyrannical, misogynist, corrupt theocracy that has imposed itself with the very baton-wielding goons that today attack the demonstrators.

This started out about election fraud. But like all revolutions, it has far outgrown its origins. What's at stake now is the very legitimacy of this regime — and the future of the entire Middle East.

This revolution will end either as a Tiananmen (a hot Tiananmen with massive and bloody repression or a cold Tiananmen with a finer mix of brutality and co-optation) or as a true revolution that brings down the Islamic Republic.

The latter is improbable but, for the first time in 30 years, not impossible. Imagine the repercussions. It would mark a decisive blow to Islamist radicalism, of which Iran today is not just standard-bearer and model, but financier and arms supplier. It would do to Islamism what the collapse of the Soviet Union did to communism — leave it forever spent and discredited.

In the region, it would launch a second Arab spring. The first in 2005 — the expulsion of Syria from Lebanon, first elections in Iraq and early liberalization in the Gulf states and Egypt — was aborted by a fierce counterattack from the forces of repression and reaction, led and funded by Iran.

Now, with Hezbollah having lost elections in Lebanon and Iraq establishing institutions of a young democracy, the fall of the Islamist dictatorship in Iran would have an electric and contagious effect.

The exception — Iraq and Lebanon — becomes the rule. Democracy becomes the wave. Syria becomes isolated; Hezbollah and Hamas, patronless. The entire trajectory of the region is reversed.

All hangs in the balance. The Khamenei regime is deciding whether to do a Tiananmen. And what side is the Obama administration taking? None. Except for the desire that this "vigorous debate" (press secretary Robert Gibbs' disgraceful euphemism) over election "irregularities" not stand in the way of U.S.-Iranian engagement on nuclear weapons.

Even from the narrow perspective of the nuclear issue, the administration's geopolitical calculus is absurd. There is zero chance that any such talks will denuclearize Iran. On Monday, Ahmadinejad declared yet again that the nuclear "file is shut, forever."

The only hope for a resolution of the nuclear question is regime change, which (if the successor regime were as moderate as pre-Khomeini Iran) might either stop the program, or make it manageable and nonthreatening.

That's our fundamental interest. And our fundamental values demand that we stand with demonstrators opposing a regime that is the antithesis of all we believe.

And where is our president? Afraid of "meddling." Afraid to take sides between the head-breaking, women-shackling exporters of terror — and the people in the street yearning to breathe free. This from a president who fancies himself the restorer of America's moral standing in the world.

This is another young Iranian women ( not the one seen above in this post ) she publicly supported presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi long before this week's riots. This woman attended a campaign rally in Tehran on May 23.

Wild Thing's comment.........

God bless Charles Krauthammer, I am such a HUGE fan of his.

You think Obama just might think it would be hypocritical to call for freedom in Iran while he's eroding freedoms in America. Naw that would take someone with a soul that just might give him some kind of conscience.

Is it possible Obama doesn’t want to call the mullahs on their stolen election because he did some elction stealing and ballot-stuffing himself, via the agents of ACORN?

As is typical with Hussein Obama, there is something here that affects HIM. Perhaps his big campaign donor, the King of Saudi Arabia, has told him to stay out of it...or to support Amadinejad. But I doubt it. Saudi Arabia despises the current Iranian regime as much as anyone. At least from all we have read in the past.

Obama’s refusal to support the Iranian protesters is despicable and shameful.

Let's keep track of this Muslim in OUR White House:

1. MUSLIMS terrorists hijacking of ship and Capt. taken hostage _ Muslim Obama MIA

2. MUSLIM terrorist attacks on AMERICAN soil at Recruiting office, killing one soldier and wounding another - Muslim Obama MIA - NO official statement made from Obama only a word of mouth statement with NO link to Obama himself. and is not listed at White House website at all

Add to this how Obama has been to BiBi and Israel. His favoring the Hamas and PLO over Jews and wanting the settlements to stop, the population to be controlled of ONLY the Jews speaks volumes too. He hates Jews and he would have to work hard to make me think otherwise. He was able to speak out against Israel but he can't speak out and tell Iran to let the votes be counted to listen to the people or what an ourtage all of this is. ........nope.

NON Muslim attacks:

1. baby killer murdered by nut case - Obama who is extremely pro abortion late term abortion even if the baby by God's miracle lives baby still must be killed..... Obama speaks out holds press conference and makes official statement that yessss is located at White House website not once but several times. Media goes into a frenzy blaming right wing pro life people.

2. prejudice sicko jerk goes on killing spree at Washington D.C. Holocaust Museum - Obama makes a statement also listed at White House and media goes into a frenzy blaming right wingers.

Looks like a pattern to me. If there is a Muslim involved Obama is silent. Is he really that stupid to think Muslims will not attack us just because he went to a Muslim school, had a Muslim relatives, gets hot and heavy at the sound of the Islam call to prayer and yessss IS A MUSLIM? Dream on camel breath, the Muslims could care less what you are. Muslims kill other Muslims all the time.

Iran protests 'to go ahead'

Iran protests 'to go ahead'


A key rally against Iran's presidential elections will go ahead on Saturday - in defiance of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei - opposition sources say.

The wife of defeated candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi, and an aide to another rival candidate, Mehdi Karroubi, said the rally would go ahead.

Mr Mousavi later announced he would be giving a statement imminently.

Police warned they will arrest the leaders of any protest rallies, which they said would be illegal.

The warning follows an order from Ayatollah Khamenei on Friday that street protests should cease.

On her page of the social networking website Facebook, Mr Mousavi's wife Zahra Rahnavard said the rally would go ahead.

An aide to Mr Karroubi also told the BBC that a rally would take place and that it would be attended by Mr Mousavi and Mohammad Khatami - the former president, key reformist and ally of Mr Mousavi.

But the BBC's Jon Leyne in Tehran says events are moving quickly, with the website of Mr Mousavi's Kalameh newspaper saying he was due to make an imminent announcement.

Police warning

Iranian officials have warned protest leaders not to launch fresh demonstrations.

Abbas Mohtaj - head of Iran's State Security Council and also deputy interior minister - issued a direct warning to Mr Mousavi.

"Should you provoke and call for these illegal rallies you will be responsible for the consequences," he said in a statement.

State TV also broadcast a warning by a senior police commander warning that police would not countenance any more street protests.

The Egyptian government daily condemned the international community's "cautious" response to the Iranian uprising.
Canada, France and Germany have condemned the Iranian regime and the fraudulent presidential election.


In its June 18, 2009 editorial, the Egyptian government daily Al-Ahram criticized the international community's cautious stance on the unfolding events in Iran. According to the editorial, this caution gives the Iranian regime the impression that the international community will overlook the crackdown on opposition protests so as not to adversely affect talks on the nuclear issue.

Following is a translation of the editorial in full:

"Events in Iran have followed in close succession since the announcement that fundamentalist candidate Ahmadinejad was elected to a second term in the presidential elections. Between the mass demonstrations [of the reformists] decrying electoral fraud, and the counter-demonstrations accusing the reformists of allegiance to the West, the international community has stood confused about what position to take towards this democratic outpouring in a country that is on the threshold of acquiring nuclear capabilities, something all international and regional actors consider an unwelcome development.
"The caution that has characterized the position of the principle international actors towards the abuses occurring in the streets of Iran, up to and including the killing [of protesters], may be sending the wrong message to the ruling powers there. The upshot of this message is that the strong desire to reach a political resolution to the Iranian nuclear crisis and to avoid a clash with the Iranian authorities is a goal that supersedes all other considerations - even if these other considerations be support for international principles and human rights, and the urging of the [Iranian] government to stop the violence and bloodshed and to lend an ear to the views of the Iranian opposition. [This opposition] has expressed its rejection of the election results and its resistance to a second term for the current president, primarily for domestic reasons, and principle among them [Ahmadinejad's] failed management of the economy."


Wild Thing's comment........

Actually why would Obama care about their election, we know who he wants the elected one to be. Obama did not run an honest campaign with his ACORN and his other thugs, dead people voting and then the votes he stole from Hillary.

And as the Townhall says.......Your Silence is Deafening, Mr. President...The reason: He has so much invested in his let-us-sit-down-and-settle-our-differences diplomatic approach to Iran that it has all but turned into a "see no evil, hear no evil" policy toward that nation.

Iran Unclenches its Fist Slaps Obama's face

President Pantywaist latest: Iran unclenches its fist - to slap Barack Obama's face


"To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist." That piece of classic Obamaguff, unloaded during his presidential inauguration, has come home to haunt President Pantywaist, as a consequence of the Iranian election.

Today Iran unclenched its fist - to slap President Pantywaist on the face. It seems, despite the chiding from Barack Obama, that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad feel quite comfortable on the wrong side of history. At Friday prayers - accompanied by encouragingly reformist shouts of "Death to America!" - the Supreme Leader (Khamenei, not Obama) delivered the most intransigently authoritarian speech heard in Iran since the reign of Cyrus the Great.

From behind the stage set on which Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Mir-Hossein Mousavi have been acting as surrogates for the real power struggle between Khamemei and Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the Supreme Leader injected a note of politically incorrect reality into the fantasy conjured by Obama and the Western media. The Basij militia will be unleashed on protesters. "If there is any bloodshed, leaders of the protests will be held directly responsible," announced the Ayatollah.

"Make my day!" is the American translation of this uncompromising challenge, to America as well as to the youthful protesters, by a regime emboldened by the patent weakness of President Pantywaist. Americans should realise, having undergone the Vietnam experience, that in the final analysis power does not depend on military hardware but on political will. The Islamic republic is not short of political will.

It could be, of course, that the threat of the Basij militia will turn out to be no more potent than the parading of the Shah's 'Immortals' of the Imperial Guard, shortly before they were annihilated and that a revolution will sweep aside the mullahs. But it does not seem likely. The auguries are not of revolution, but of either civil war or acquiescence by the reformers. Regime change will not be uncontested.

For America and the rest of the world, Iranian nuclear development is the supreme consideration. How many of those superficially Americanised young Iranians, so active on Twitter, does Obama think want to see their country stripped of the prestige of being a potential nuclear power, especially when Pakistan is already in the club?

This is a lose/lose situation for Obama. He is as flaky on Iran as on everything else. In 2004 he favoured "surgical" missile strikes against Iran. In 2007 he did not rule out force, but preferred "aggressive diplomacy combined with tough sanctions" - but that was for the ears of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Since he moved address from Chicago to Washington, his stance has become more nuanced (ie he hasn't a clue what to do).

He is trying to steer a course between appeasement and rhetoric about the Iranian "threat", while knowing he may eventually have to knuckle down and accept a nuclear Islamic republic, since Barack doesn't do war. If the Israelis do the job for him, that will be ten times more provocative in Middle Eastern terms. Look forward to change you'd better believe in.

Wild Thing's comment.....

President Pantywaist...ROTFLMAO!! This guy always refers to Obama like this, I have posted his other articles before. LOVE it! Obama deserves any kind of got cha possible.

“To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.”

Attention murderous, suppressive tyrants! It’s all good. *fist bump*

Obama's presidency will only sink further into a morass of his own making from here on out.

US House Condemns Tehran Crackdown on Protesters ~ Obama MIA

House condemns Tehran crackdown on protesters


WASHINGTON In the strongest message yet from the U.S. government, the House voted 405-1 Friday to condemn Tehran's crackdown on demonstrators and the government's interference with Internet and cell phone communications.

The resolution was initiated by Republicans as a veiled criticism of President Barack Obama, who has been reluctant to criticize Tehran's handling of disputed elections that left hard-liner President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in power.

Rep. Mike Pence, who co-sponsored the resolution, said he disagrees with the administration that it must not meddle in Iran's affairs.

"When Ronald Reagan went before the Brandenburg Gate, he did not say Mr. (Mikhail) Gorbachev, that wall is none of our business," said Pence, R-Ind., of President Reagan's famous exhortation to the Soviet leader to "tear down that wall."

Rep. Howard Berman, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and co-sponsor of the resolution, said "it is not for us to decide who should run Iran, much less determine the real winner of the June 12 election.

"But we must reaffirm our strong belief that the Iranian people have a fundamental right to express their views about the future of their country freely and without intimidation," added Berman, D-Calif.

Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., have proposed a similar measure in the Senate, although a vote was not certain.

Rep. Ron Paul, a Texas libertarian who often speaks out against what he regards as government meddling, cast the sole opposing vote.

The policy statement expresses support for "all Iranian citizens who embrace the values of freedom, human rights, civil liberties and rule of law" and affirms "the importance of democratic and fair elections."

Wild Thing's comment......

Obama still MIA, just like he was when the Capt. of the ship was taken hostage and just like he was when the terrorist attack happened at the Recruiting office that killed a solder and injured another.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Threatens Iranians Blames Zionist Media yadda yadda yadda

Iran's leader: End protests or risk 'bloodshed'

Iran's supreme leader said Friday that the country's disputed presidential vote had not been rigged, sternly warning protesters of a crackdown if they continue massive demonstrations demanding a new election.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei sided with hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and offered no concessions to the opposition. He effectively closed any chance for a new vote by calling the June 12 election an "absolute victory."

The speech created a stark choice for candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi and his supporters: Drop their demands for a new vote or take to the streets again in blatant defiance of the man endowed with virtually limitless powers under Iran's constitution.

Khamenei accused foreign media and Western countries of trying to create a political rift and stir up chaos in Iran.

The ayatollah reached beyond Iran to criticize “media belonging to Zionists, evil media” for seeking to portray Iran as divided and accused what he called arrogant Western powers, particularly Britain and the United States, of hostile comments, saying they failed to understand Iranian society

"Some of our enemies in different parts of the world intended to depict this absolute victory, this definitive victory, as a doubtful victory," he said. "It is your victory. They cannot manipulate it."
Khamenei said the 11 million votes that separated Ahmadinejad from his top opponent, Mousavi, were proof that fraud did not occur. Ahmadinejad watched the sermon from the front row. State television did not show Mousavi in attendance.
Khamenei was blunt about what a wider fight would bring — warning those who "want to ignore the law or break the law" will face the consequences.
"They will be held accountable for all the violence, bloodshed and rioting," he told tens of thousands of people gathered for Friday prayers at Tehran University for a speech that was broadcast around Iran and the world.

Wild Thing's comment......

Maybe he can threaten to hold his breathe till they stop protesting. It would be great if they could get rid of this guy. His hate for Jews, Israel, and America is so horrible.

Iran Election Protests Draws Responses Around the World

Remember what Obama said just this last Saturday June 13th.

Obama Takes Credit for "Robust Debate" in Iranian Sham Election

"....after the speech that I, uh, made in Cairo we tried to send a clear message that we think there is the possibility of change, uhhh, aaaand -- ehhh, yuh-- oh -- Ultimately the election is for the Iranians to decide, uh, but, uh, just a-as has been true in Lebanon, what's, uh -- can be true in Iran as well is that you're seeing people looking at new possibilities. And, uh, whoever, uh, ends up winning, uh, the election in Iran, uh, the fact that there's been a robust debate hopefully will help, uh, advance our ability to engage them in new ways."


This phot below is of a man shot by pro-government militia near a rally supporting leading opposition presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi in Tehran, Iran, Monday, June 15, 2009.

* Also The Guardian is also reporting that 12 Iranian students killed in crackdown after violent clashes.

* And this: TEHRAN, Iran (AFP) Eight people were killed and several wounded in the incident


Iran is spinning out of control. On the surface it is a hopeful sign. But the bottom line is the Presidency is not the highest office in Iran. The mullahs are in charge. The election is a show .....Mousavi was as radical as Ahmadinejad, but smoother. Nothing would have changed. The Islamic Republic of Iran is going nuclear and annihilationist.

Unrest in Iran forces President Obama's hand


“I am deeply troubled by the violence that I’ve been seeing on television,” Obama said Monday, more than two days after protests began to break out Saturday in Tehran. “I think that the democratic process, free speech, the ability of people to peacefully dissent — all of those are universal values and need to be respected, and whenever I see violence perpetrated on people who are peacefully dissenting, and whenever the American people see that, I think they are rightfully troubled.”



“The German government is very concerned about the current situation,” Merkel said Monday in Berlin.

She strongly criticized the “wave of arrests” during the demonstrations and the fact that foreign media were being hampered from reporting on the developments. Allegations of election fraud called for a “transparent investigation,” she said.


Sarkozy condemns Iran’s “violence directed at demonstrators”

Nicolas Sarkozy, president of France, today “condemned the violence directed at demonstrators” in Iran and called for Iran to shed “full light” on the result of the presidential election, AFP reports.

In a strongly-worded released statement, Sarkozy said he “condemned the violence directed at demonstrators, the arrest of opposition members and political figures, restrictions on public liberties, freedom of expression and communication and the constraints imposed on Iranian and foreign nationals.”

“It would be unacceptable if vote-rigging had falsified the result of the elections, against the democratically-expressed will of the Iranian people,” Sarkozy said in a statement, adding: “Full light must be shed on this situation.”


Brown: Iranians deserve democracy

Iran’s leaders have “serious questions” to answer over the disputed presidential election, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said today amid growing protests in Tehran.


“The government of Canada calls for freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law in Iran, and urges the country to fully respect all of its human rights obligations, both in law and in practice. We also continue to call on Iran to comply immediately with its legal obligations concerning its nuclear program.”


U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is urging Iran’s leaders to respect the will of their people as they investigate allegations of fraud in Friday’s presidential election.


EU urges Iran to clarify election outcome

The European Union’s 27 member states are to issue a joint call on Iran to clarify President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s landslide election victory, Spain’s foreign minister said on Monday.

“There is a need to clarify the situation and to express our concern that a sector of the population are having difficulties in expressing its opinion,” Miguel Angel Moratinos told reporters after talks in Luxembourg with EU counterparts.

“The Iranian people deserves to have its voice heard, and we call for a fully transparent investigation into electoral discrepancies,” Cannon said in a statement.

I can't stand it, he is soooo such a bore when he speaks. Can you imagine this jerk going through a drive through and having to order. The vehicles behind him would be backed up for blocks while Obama was still on his first dozen UH- Uh- UH- Uh's.

One of the reasons I truly believe this guy is a plant is because we were told over and over by dems and even a lot of republicans what a great speaker he was, how charismatic he was......... hello, he doesn't have a charismatic bone his entire body.

“It would be wrong to remain silent, so I’m not.”

Brilliant. Right up there with “we shall fight them on the beaches, we shall fight them on the streets, we shall never surrender.” Somebody probably sat up late last night writing that one.

The “robust debate” Obama Was Talking About

election candidate Mirhossein Mousavi they say he lost the election


And here is some of that just some of the “robust debate” Obama was talking about.
Supporters of Iran's moderate presidential candidate Mirhossein Mousavi throw stones during clashes with police in Tehran June 13, 2009 during a protest against the election results in Tehran June 13, 2009. Thousands of people clashed with police on Saturday after the disputed election victory of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sparked the biggest protests in Tehran since the 1979 Islamic revolution.


Iranian-Americans shout slogans against Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during a demonstration in front of the White House in Washington on June 12, 2009. US President Barack Obama said that he thought there was a "possibility of change" in US-Iran relations and welcomed the "robust debate" taking place as Iranians voted in tight elections.


Saturday June 13, 2009, showing Iran President Ahmadinejad during a broadcast on Iranian TV. Iran's re-elected president Ahmadinejad said during the broadcast Saturday that the recent presidential election was a "great achievement" for the people of Iran, and spoke of election celebrations.


Report: Defeated Ahmadinejad rival arrested in Iran


Iranian presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi was reportedly arrested Saturday following the reformist's defeat at the polls by hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Supporters of Mousavi, the main challenger to Ahmadinejad, responded to the election with the most serious unrest in Tehran in a decade and charged that the result was the work of a dictatorship.

Mousavi's arrest was reported by an unofficial source, according to whom the presidential hopeful was arrested en route to the home of Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Nevertheless, there were a number of contradictory reports from Iran on Saturday, in large part due to the heavy restrictions imposed on the media in the Islamic Republic, in particular on foreign reporters.

It was also reported Saturday that former Iranian president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani resigned from all of his official positions in protest against the results of the election, which Mousavi denounced as rigged.

By nightfall, cell phone service appeared to have been cut in the capital
Tehran. And Ahmadinejad, in a nationally televised victory speech, accused the foreign media of coverage that harms the Iranian people. There was more rioting at night and fires continued to burn on the streets of Tehran.

Ahmadinejad called on the public to respect the vote and attacked the foreign media's coverage.

"All political and propaganda machines abroad and sections inside the country have been mobilized against the nation," he said in a televised addresss. "They have launched the heaviest propaganda and psychological war against the Iranian nation. Many global networks continuously worked, employing very complicated methods, that work against our nation and arranged a full-fledged battle against us."

Without mentioning the unrest on the streets, Ahmadinejad proclaimed that a new era has begun in the history of the Iranian nation.

"A bright and glorious future is ahead for the Iranian nation. ... I invite everyone to join me in constructing Iran," he said.


Wild Thing's comment........

Obama Takes Credit for "Robust Debate" in Iranian Sham Election

In the Rose Garden today Obama took credit for the elections in Lebanon and the possibility of Hope and Change in Iran.

Obama is asked about Iran's elections, and in his own egotistical way, he harkens back to his Cairo speech to take credit for Middle East 'dialogue' and 'hope' for the future of relations with Iran. What an ass.

"....after the speech that I, uh, made in Cairo we tried to send a clear message that we think there is the possibility of change, uhhh, aaaand -- ehhh, yuh-- oh -- Ultimately the election is for the Iranians to decide, uh, but, uh, just a-as has been true in Lebanon, what's, uh -- can be true in Iran as well is that you're seeing people looking at new possibilities. And, uh, whoever, uh, ends up winning, uh, the election in Iran, uh, the fact that there's been a robust debate hopefully will help, uh, advance our ability to engage them in new ways."


RUSH: The ego of this man is simply incomprehensible to behold. Didn't President Obama say that we shouldn't impose our values on others? And wasn't Iran included in that? And now he's out taking credit for a "robust debate" because of his speech? I'm glad he put the qualifier in there: "Well, even if we don't end up with a new leader at least we've had a robust debate that will advance our ability to engage them in new ways." This is the Practiced Art of Deceit. President Obama knows that whoever the president of Iran is, is not relevant, that the mullahs run that country. It is the Islamic Republic of Iran. This presidential election and having a "president" is a buffer. It is to create an image to the world that there is some sort of freedom of choice in terms of the leadership in Iran, when we know there is not -- and Obama knows there is not. And yet here he is already taking credit for the election results in Lebanon and the "robust debate" in Iran. This guy has an ego and a narcissistic complex about himself, ladies and gentlemen, that can only be described as unhealthy and dangerous.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Hmmmm Do they have an ACORN over there, too?

LMAO can you believe the arrogance of Obama. He made that statement before the Iran election was even done. hahaha He doesn't only want to rule the USA but also the elections of other countries.

Besides being the evil, dangerous man that Obama is he is also a total embarassment to our country.

“And obviously, after the speech that I made in Cairo, we tried to send a clear message that we think there is the possibility of change. “

The “ obviously after the speech I made in Cairo” -me, me me, it’s all about me , everything is about me-is what’s sticking in everyone’s craw.

Obama Offers IRAN Fourth of July Group Hug and Right to Nuclear Power

US inviting Iranian diplomats to July 4 parties

US diplomats told they may invite Iranian counterparts to join Independence Day festivities

YNet news

In a new overture to Iran, the Obama administration has authorized US embassies around the world to invite Iranian officials to Independence Day parties they host on or around July 4th.

A State Department cable sent to all US embassies and consulates late last week said that US diplomats could ask their Iranian counterparts to attend the festivities, which generally feature speeches about American values, fireworks, and, of course, hot dogs and hamburgers.

The notice, sent on Friday, said that the posts "may invite representatives from the government of Iran" to the events, a State Department official said Tuesday, quoting from the document. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an internal communication.

It was not immediately clear how many embassies and consulates would actually invite Iranian diplomats to the July 4 parties or whether any Iranians would accept the invitations.

The cable was first reported by The New York Times.

The move comes amid the administration's ongoing efforts to engage Iran in variety of venues, including formal diplomatic meetings over its nuclear program, violence in Iraq and the situation in Afghanistan.

But Iran has given mixed responses to the overtures, which began early in the administration when President Barack Obama recorded a videotaped greeting to the Iranian people and its leaders for their new year.


Obama says Iran's energy concerns legitimate,Has Right to Nuclear Power

Washington Post

Barack Obama reiterated that Iran may have some right to nuclear energy _ provided it takes steps to prove its aspirations are peaceful.

In a BBC interview broadcast Tuesday, Obama also restated plans to pursue direct diplomacy with Tehran to encourage it to set aside any ambitions for nuclear weapons it might harbor.

"Without going into specifics, what I do believe is that Iran has legitimate energy concerns, legitimate aspirations. On the other hand, the international community has a very real interest in preventing a nuclear arms race in the region," Obama said.

The comments echo remarks Obama made in Prague last month in which he said his administration would "support Iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy with rigorous inspections" if Iran proves it is no longer a nuclear threat.

Iranian state television described the news as Obama recognizing the "rights of the Iranian nation," a phrase typically used to refer to Iran's nuclear program.

Asked what he would say during his visit about human rights abuses, including the detention of political prisoners in Egypt, Obama indicated no stern lecture would be forthcoming.

He said he hoped to deliver the message that democratic values are principles that "they can embrace and affirm."

Obama added that there is a danger "when the United States, or any country, thinks that we can simply impose these values on another country with a different history and a different culture."

Iran Sends 6 Warships to Int. Waters in 'Saber Rattling' Move

Iran Sends 6 Warships to International Waters in 'Saber Rattling' Move

FOX News

Iran has sent six warships into international waters in a move security experts are calling a "muscle flexing" show of defiance following missile tests last week.

"Iran has dispatched six ... warships to international waters and the Gulf of Aden region in a historically unprecedented move by the Iranian Navy," Iranian Adm. Habibollah Sayyari told a gathering of armed forces officials, Reuters reported.

Sayyari said the ships were moved to preserve Iran's territorial integrity in its southern waters, but foreign policy experts are calling it an aggressive move targeted at a Western audience as much as for regional powers like rival Saudi Arabia.

The deployment is "a signal of military strength, resolve and continued defiance to U.S. and U.N. Security Council efforts to end the impasse over Iran's nuclear program," said Jim Phillips, senior fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs at the Heritage Institute.

"What's very important here is the timing of this move — and this naval muscle flexing comes after Iran's missile test earlier this week, which was saber rattling that was meant to send the same signal as this naval dispatch."

Venezuela, Bolivia Supplying Iran With Uranium for Nuclear Program

Israel: Venezuela, Bolivia Supplying Iran With Uranium for Nuclear Program

FOX News


Venezuela and Bolivia are supplying Iran with uranium for its nuclear program, according to a secret Israeli government report obtained Monday by The Associated Press.

The two South American countries are known to have close ties with Iran, but this is the first allegation that they are involved in the development of Iran's nuclear program, considered a strategic threat by Israel.

"There are reports that Venezuela supplies Iran with uranium for its nuclear program," the Foreign Ministry document states, referring to previous Israeli intelligence conclusions. It added, "Bolivia also supplies uranium to Iran."

The report concludes that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is trying to undermine the United States by supporting Iran.

The Israeli government report also charges that the Iran-backed Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon have set up cells in Latin America. It says Venezuela has issued permits that allow Iranian residents to travel freely in South America.

The report concludes, "Since Ahmadinejad's rise to power, Tehran has been promoting an aggressive policy aimed at bolstering its ties with Latin American countries with the declared goal of 'bringing America to its knees."'

The document says Venezuela and Bolivia are violating the United Nations Security Council's economic sanctions with their aid to Iran.

As allies against the U.S., Ahmadinejad and Chavez have set up a $200 billion fund aimed at garnering the support of more South American countries for the cause of "liberation from the American imperialism," according to the report.

YNet news

Venezuela is helping Iran circumvent the Security Council's economic sanctions and is also suspected of providing Tehran with uranium, while Hizbullah is setting up terror cells in south America, this according to an official Foreign Ministry document obtained by Ynet.

Ministry officials explain that Ahmadinejad and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez share a common interest – to defy the United States.

The Ministry also details the economic ties between Tehran and South America. According to the report, trade between Brazil and Iran is estimated at a billion dollars; Uruguay sells $100 million worth of rice to Iran, while Chile purchases Iranian oil.

Pro-American countries such as Honduras, the Dominican Republic and Guatemala, who receive aid from Venezuela, may also be subject to Iranian influence, the report says, adding that even Argentina is steadily increasing its trade relations with Iran.


Wild Thing's comment........

“according to a secret Israeli government report”

Either they stole it, or Israel leaked it as in that is what happens when the false messiah messes with Bibi! It might be that since he is ticked at Obama as he should be.

Iran wants Israel off the map, Chavez is supplying the uranium and Hussein Obama is cozening up to Chavez all the while Obama is telling Israel to split up their country. SO 52% of America this is what you wanted for the highest office in the free world. sheesh!

Dueling Muslims? ~ Ahmadinejad Wants to Debate Obama at the U.N.

Iran's Ahmadinejad Wants to Debate Obama at the U.N.

ABC news

Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is calling for a face-to-face debate with his American counterpart Barack Obama at the United Nations.

The offer by Ahmadinejad came at news conference Monday as he steps up his campaign for his re-election in the June 12 presidential vote.

If returned to office, Ahmadinejad says he wants to meet Obama during the U.N. General Assembly in September to debate ``world issues and the way toward peace.''

Ahmadinejad is in a four-way race against a fellow hard-liner and two pro-reform candidates.

The campaign has grown more bitter in recent days with reformists accusing authorities of trying to undercut their strength by blocking the social

U.S. May Drop Key Condition for Iran Talks

New York Times

The Obama administration and its European allies are considering dropping a long-standing U.S. demand that Iran immediately shut down its nuclear facilities if it enters talks over its atomic program, The New York Times reported on Tuesday.

The proposal would also allow Tehran to continue enriching uranium for some period during the talks in what is considered a sharp break from the Bush administration, which had demanded Iran halt its enrichment activities, the report said.

Enriching uranium can produce fuel for a nuclear power plant or, if purified to a much higher degree, provide material for an atomic bomb. The West suspects Iran's nuclear program is cover for building an atomic bomb but Tehran says it is to generate electricity.

The proposals under consideration would go somewhat beyond President Obama’s promise, during the presidential campaign, to open negotiations with Iran “without preconditions.” Officials involved in the discussion said they were being fashioned to draw Iran into nuclear talks that it had so far shunned.

The proposals, still under discussion, were aimed at drawing Iran into nuclear talks that it has so far shunned, the newspaper said, citing officials involved in the strategy sessions.

A senior Obama administration official cautioned that "we are still at the brainstorming level" and said the terms of an opening proposal to Iran were still being debated, the newspaper said.

The six major powers dealing with Iran, including the United States, met in London last week and invited Tehran to a new round of talks about its nuclear program.

The New York Times cited European officials as saying that in talks during Obama's visit to Europe there was agreement that Iran would not accept the immediate shutdown of its facilities that the Bush administration had demanded.

Obama administration officials declined to discuss details of their deliberations, but said any new American policy would ultimately require Iran to cease enrichment, the newspaper said.

"Our goal remains exactly what it has been in the U.N. resolutions: suspension," one senior administration official told the newspaper.
The report comes as Iran's top nuclear negotiator said Monday he welcomes nuclear talks with the United States and other countries.

The negotiator, Saeed Jalili, made the comments during a telephone call with the European Union's foreign policy chief, state television reported. During the conversation, Jalili said the talks should be aimed at "constructive cooperation" between countries.

Last week, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran was open to talks -- but only if they were based on respect for Iran's rights, suggesting the West should not try to force Tehran to stop uranium enrichment. Jalili's comments appeared to be more of a definitive answer, but he stressed that Iran would issue an official response to the invitation soon, the TV reported. He did not elaborate.

The United States announced last week that it would join direct talks with Iran that Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia are seeking to convene. The talks aim to break a long deadlock over Iran's nuclear program, which the U.S. and its allies fear aims to build atomic weapons. Iran denies the charge.

Ahmadinejad to Obama "Any Hand Outstretched to Attack Us Will Be Cut Off"

Ahmadinejad in Response to Obama: "Any Hand Outstretched to Attack Us Will Be Cut Off"

In an April 1 speech in the Khuzestan region in southern Iran, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad responded to U.S. President Barack Obama's videotaped message on the occasion of the Iranian New Year. Following are excerpts from Ahmadinejad's speech:


Ahmadinejad to the West: Mind Your Manners

"…In order to take control of the [world's] people, the arrogant ones, those who speak through violence, the [most] corrupt people in history, are targeting first and foremost the honor [of the world's peoples], since a man who loses his honor is ready to bear any suffering and is trampled and easily eliminated. It is impossible for the arrogant ones to overcome a society and a population who have tasted the taste of honor…
"Seven years ago, following the Iranian nation's steadfast stand on the nuclear issue, the enemies took up positions on both sides of Iran's borders, in the east and in the west, and announced that the reason for their military show of force was in order to contain the Iranian nation in the Middle East region. Several times they made as though they were about to attack [Iran], with military preparations and threats against the Iranian nation. However, by the grace of God and thanks to the Iranian nation's steadfastness, and thanks to the values of the martyrs, they were defeated…"
Ahmadinejad then addressed the world powers, saying: "We advise you to correct your behavior, since the world is changing… Stop the egotism, the aggression, and the lack of manners. Speak to the [world's] nations in a correct manner and politely…"

Iran "Is Known to the World as a Nation that Cannot Be Defeated"

"Thanks to the steadfastness of the Iranian nation, which stands behind the dear leader [Khamenei], this nation continues in its glorious path and is known to the world as a nation that cannot be defeated. Today, thanks to great achievements, the threat to Iran has been lifted, and no power in the world entertains the notion of taking action against the Iranian nation.

Even if someone were to entertain this notion and want to undertake any act of aggression against the nation… he should know that the Iranian nation is ready, and any hand outstretched in order to attack will be cut off.

"The Iranian nation is one of civilization, culture, and values. It is peace-loving, and [its people are] people of reason and dialogue, justice and brotherhood. It desires that this atmosphere should exist throughout the world. They [the West] say that the world cannot be run through terror or militarism. We say the same thing; in fact, this is the deepest wish of the Iranian nation. However, the question here is: why are they making shows of force thousands of kilometers from their borders and attacking other nations? Stop your shows of force and aggression, and look to the world in peace and tranquility…"

What a vile horrible person Obama is,he wants a new beginning with the people that seek to destroy our nation kill our people and drive freedom and liberty from the planet.

NEVER has America been in such danger as we are with this America hating Muslim in our Oval Office. The Iranians will correctly interpret any conciliatory messages from Washington as weakness.

Iran Tells Obama To Go Pound Sand

Iran sets terms for U.S. ties



Iran has responded to U.S. President Barack Obama's offer of better relations by demanding policy changes from Washington, but the Islamic state is not closing the door to a possible thaw in ties with its old foe.

Iran wants the United States to show concrete change in its behavior toward it, for example by handing back frozen assets, but Tehran is not pursuing "eternal hostility," said Professor Mohammad Marandi at Tehran University.

"I think they (the Iranian leadership) are quite willing to have better relations if the Americans are serious," said Marandi, who heads North American studies at the university.
A day after Obama held out the prospect of a "new beginning" of diplomatic engagement, Iran's top authority spoke at length on Saturday about its grievances against the United States and said he saw no real policy shift yet by the new administration.
But Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has final say on all matters of state, also added in his speech at Iran's most prominent religious shrine in the northeastern city of Mashhad: "You change, our behavior will change."
Marandi said Khamenei did not dismiss Obama's overture but was "effectively saying that this is simply not enough, that the United States must take concrete steps toward decreasing tension with Iran."

Iran and the United States have not had diplomatic ties for three decades and are now embroiled in a dispute over Tehran's nuclear program, which the West suspects is aimed at making bombs. Iran denies the charge.

Saeed Laylaz, editor of business daily Sarmayeh and an outspoken political commentator, said Khamenei in his speech had sent a "counter-offer" to the United States following Obama's video message on Friday to mark the Iranian New Year. "I think he opened the doors to the United States," Laylaz said.


After taking office in January, Obama talked of extending a hand of peace to Tehran if it "unclenches its fist," in contrast to his predecessor George W. Bush, who branded Iran part of an "axis of evil" and spearheaded a drive to isolate it.

In his warmest offer yet of a fresh start in relations, Obama said in Friday's video message: "The United States wants the Islamic Republic of Iran to take its rightful place in the community of nations."
But Khamenei made clear more than a change in U.S. rhetoric was needed, saying the United States was "hated in the world" and should stop interfering in other countries.
He also spoke of "oppressive sanctions" imposed on the Islamic Republic, Iranian assets frozen in the United States and Washington's backing of Israel, which Tehran does not recognize.
"Khamenei suggested a very clear way for Obama's administration, how they can start real action about Iran," Laylaz said.

Iran Dismisses U.S. Outreach as a 'Slogan'

FOX news

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei delivers a sermon during his visit to Mashhad, 741km (463 miles) east of Tehran, March 21, 2009. Iran has responded to U.S. President Barack Obama's offer of better relations by demanding policy changes from Washington,

President Obama intends to press ahead with efforts to open a dialogue with Iran despite an apparent setback yesterday when Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the country’s supreme religious leader, dismissed U.S. overtures as a “slogan” offering no real change.
Obama and his aides had already been considering a direct approach to Khamenei as a possible follow-up to the president's unprecedented video address to the Iranian people, released on Friday.
Khamenei’s initial response was not encouraging, but U.S. officials and European diplomats noted that the Iranian leader did not rule out a future breakthrough. A familiar chant of “Death to America” echoed around a religious shrine in the northeastern city of Mashhad as Khamenei complained that Obama had “insulted the Islamic republic of Iran from the first day."
In the video — subtitled in Farsi — Obama pledged to pursue “constructive ties." The president noted that the process would “not be advanced by threats," and referred to Iran as an “Islamic republic," signalling his readiness to deal with the current religious leadership.

Air Cavalry crews see higher-tech attacks, weapons from Iran

Multi-National Force webstie

BAGHDAD — Air cavalry helicopter pilots have had to change their tactics to adapt to newer and higher-tech surface-to-air missile systems that officials believe are coming in from Iran, a senior official in Iraq said Friday. Crews from 1st Air Cavalry Brigade out of Camp Taji have flown support for operations in and around Baghdad for more than a year. Since their arrival, there has been an increase in the sophistication of attacks and types of weapons, Army Col. Daniel J. Shanahan said in a conference call with military analysts.
“In the last several months, we have had an increased threat from systems that we had not seen in the first part of the year,” Shanahan said. Some of them originated in “places like Iran,” he said, causing considerable change in tactics, techniques and procedures.
“It’s a real concern, and it’s something that we’re dealing with,” he said. “Right now we’ve got the best systems in the world, and we’ve got technology behind us.”
Shanahan said additional sensors and diffusers, which decrease an aircraft’s infrared signature, have been added, and crews’ flying tactics have changed.
Shanahan’s crews have logged 80,000 hours of flight time in the past 13 months, he said. The helicopters spend about 10 hours in the air for every one on the ground, Shanahan estimated. But even though the enemy’s weapons systems are more advanced than before, overall attacks on aircraft are down in the area, he said.
Crews are fired upon about 200 times monthly, he said. Attacks are from weapons types ranging from small arms to rockets known in military parlance as “man-portable air-defense systems,” or MANPADs, which are shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles that typically use infrared guidance.
MANPADs make up only about 5 percent of the attacks, “but if you ask the pilots, they would say that MANPADS is the biggest threat,” Shanahan said.
It takes about 3,000 troops to fly, fuel, arm and maintain the H-64 Apache, UH-60 Black Hawk and CH-47 Chinook helicopters operating around the clock at the base. The aircraft are used for attack reconnaissance, air assault, air transport and medical evacuation missions.
In addition, crews partner with Iraqi Air Force units for training and some missions. The Iraqi Air Force has progressed sufficiently that it routinely provides reconnaissance missions, patrolling pipelines, power lines and other infrastructure. It also provides in-country transportation for Iraqi government officials.
Iraqi Air Force pilots fly three types of helicopters: Mi-17s and Bell JetRangers in training programs and UH-1 Hueys mounted with defensive systems, which are workhorses for reconnaissance and transport, Shanahan said. This frees his crews from these types of missions and is a critical step toward the Iraqi government assuming its own security mission, he said.

Obama Shows Iran He Is Ashamed of The American Flag

White House blog

Obama released a special video message for all those celebrating Nowruz. Translated "New Day," Nowruz marks the arrival of spring and the beginning of the New Year for millions in Iran and other communities around the world.

This year, the President wanted to send a special message to the people and government of Iran on Nowruz, acknowledging the strain in our relations over the last few decades.

"But at this holiday we are reminded of the common humanity that binds us together," he says.

After committing his administration to a future of honest and respectful diplomacy, he continues on to address Iran's leaders directly:

"You, too, have a choice. The United States wants the Islamic Republic of Iran to take its rightful place in the community of nations. You have that right -- but it comes with real responsibilities, and that place cannot be reached through terror or arms, but rather through peaceful actions that demonstrate the true greatness of the Iranian people and civilization. And the measure of that greatness is not the capacity to destroy, it is your demonstrated ability to build and create."

Is President Obama ashamed to display the American flag to Iranians?

Obama Ashamed Of Old Glory? Hides Flag For Message To Iran

Source:Finkel Blog

"Watching TV clips of Pres. Obama’s special message to Iran on the occasion of Nowruz, a holiday that celebrates the first day of spring and the New Year in many countries, I was struck by how tight the frame was cropped. My antennae went up. I found the official White House website for the message, and saw that there were . . . various versions of the message. "

"In the main, generic version, an American flag is plainly visible in the background .But below that there are links to other versions, including “.mp4 with Persian subtitles.” Persian is of course the language of Iran, so that is the version the White House wanted to be seen there. "
The American flag has disappeared from the background [see screencap above the break]. So that’s why the image was cropped so tight. At times, the prez’s American flag lapel pin can be seen, but during most of the message the cropping is so tight that even that small American symbol is invisible.
Looks like Pres. Obama was worried about offending the mullahs and Ahmadinejad by displaying Old Glory.

B.Hussein Obama ( Carter on Speed) To Drop Sanctions On Iran

Posting this UPDATED video again because it fits what this post is about. It was made by The Heritage Foundation.

Obama to drop sanctions on Iran

Geostrategy Direct

DOSSIER: Ehud Barak
'Change' the mullahs can believe in: Obama to drop sanctions on Iran


Israelis may have gone to the polls hoping for "Change" but the status quo is all any of the candidates could look forward to whatever the outcome. Defense Minister Ehud Barack, has already glimpsed the future and has warned about what it holds.

Meanwhile, the status quo means continued rocket and missile attacks while international aid pours into the Gaza Strip and bolsters a regime run by Hamas, which is still considered by the United States to be a terrorist organization.

But "Change" is taking place, Barak has intimated, originating not in the Mideast but in Washington, D.C. in the form of a U.S. reconciliation with Iran.

Such a process could result in U.S. acceptance of Teheran's nuclear weapons program and the downplaying of its threats against Israel.

Just as Barack Obama entered office facing a massive economic crisis beyond the scope of his experience, likewise the new Israeli leader will have to make or delay making difficult strategic decisions from the minute he or she enters office.

Barak has already signaled what the new government can expect, officials here said.

The United States has abandoned its policy of sanctioning companies that aid Iran's nuclear and missile program, they said.

The officials said the new Obama administration of has decided to end sanctions against Iranian government agencies or companies that aid Teheran's missile and nuclear program. The officials said Israel has been informed of the new U.S. policy.

"We were told that sanctions do not help the new U.S. policy of dialogue with Iran," an official said.
Barak confirmed the new U.S. policy. In an address to the Herzliya Conference on Feb. 3, Barak said Washington did not say whether it would resume sanctions against Iran.
"We must arrive at a strategic understanding with the United States over Iran's military nuclear program and ensure that even if at this time they opt for the diplomatic option, it will only last a short time before harsh and necessary sanctions are imposed," Barak said.

Obama decided to end sanctions against Iran after determining that the U.S. measures had failed to block Teheran's missile or nuclear weapons program, officials said. Under the administration of former President George Bush, the United States accelerated sanctions on Iran in 2008.

In his address, the Israeli defense minister indicated that Obama had forged an entirely new approach toward Iran. He said the Israeli government has sought a briefing from the new U.S. administration.

A U.S. defense source said the White House would no longer enforce sanctions imposed by the Bush administration. The source said the decision has already been relayed to Iran.

"The administration has abandoned sanctions entirely," the U.S. source said. "It is a completely new ballgame."

Similarly, Obama has decided on a new U.S. ambassador to Syria and is expected to lift sanctions against a nation charged with aiding Al Qaida in Iraq and secretly building a nuclear reactor with North Korean assistance.
Diplomatic sources said Obama, in consultation with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has asked Frederic Hof to become the first U.S. ambassador to Damascus since 2005. The sources said Hof, a member of the National Advisory Committee of the Middle East Policy Council, agreed to take the post.

The sources said the Obama administration was expected to suspend U.S. sanctions on Syria's military and energy programs.

They said Hof would be authorized to facilitate an expansion of U.S. relations with Syria, which deteriorated under President George Bush.

In 2005, the United States withdrew its ambassador to Damascus in wake of the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Syria was blamed for the car bombing in Beirut in which Hariri and many of his bodyguards were killed.

The sources said Obama sent emissaries to Syria in September 2008 and pledged that if elected he would reconcile with the regime of President Bashar Assad. After his election victory, they said, Obama sent another message that promised to appoint an ambassador within the first weeks of his administration.

Specialist: Iran has already achieved nuclear weapons capability



A Russian nuclear proliferation expert contradicted a U.S. National Intelligence Estimate, telling a conference here that Iran has developed the capability to produce and fire nuclear weapons. “Iran already has nuclear capabilities,” [Ret.] Gen. Vladimir Dvorkin Dvorkin said on Feb. 4 in a speech to the the annual Herzliya Conference.

He also said that said Iran has engineered its latest missiles, enabling them to contain a nuclear warhead. In a sharp departure from the U.S. NIE in late 2007, the Russian analyst said Teheran acquired most of the components needed for a nuclear bomb as early as 2003.

The White House


Diplomacy: Barack Obama supports tough and direct diplomacy with Iran without preconditions. Now is the time to use the power of American diplomacy to pressure Iran to stop their illicit nuclear program, support for terrorism, and threats toward Israel. Obama and Biden will offer the Iranian regime a choice. If Iran abandons its nuclear program and support for terrorism, we will offer incentives like membership in the World Trade Organization, economic investments, and a move toward normal diplomatic relations. If Iran continues its troubling behavior, we will step up our economic pressure and political isolation. In carrying out this diplomacy, we will coordinate closely with our allies and proceed with careful preparation.

U.S. may moderate shield plan if Russia helps on Iran



The United States will review "the pace of development" of its missile defense shield in Europe if Russia agrees to help stop Iran from building a nuclear bomb, a senior U.S. official said on Friday.

The official was speaking as U.S. Undersecretary of State William Burns was in Moscow to push ahead with Washington's vow to hit the "reset button" on U.S.-Russian relations and halt a drift in relations.

"If we are able to work together to dissuade Iran from pursuing a nuclear weapons capability, we would be able to moderate the pace of development of missile defenses in Europe," a senior U.S. administration official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
"The impetus for the deployment of the missile defense systems is the threat from Iran. If it is possible to address that then that needs to be taken into consideration as you look at the deployment of the system," the official said.


Wild Thing's comment.........

I expected this from Obama but not so soon. Every Leftist crackpot idea is being rammed through asap by him. Everything Obama does seems deliberate to destroy us

"The United States has abandoned its policy of sanctioning companies that aid Iran's nuclear and missile program, they said. "

"The officials said the new Obama administration of has decided to end sanctions against Iranian government agencies or companies that aid Teheran's missile and nuclear program. The officials said Israel has been informed of the new U.S. policy."

And sorry Czech Republic, we know you risked ticking off Russia in the assumption we would protect you by agreeing to let us put up a shield, but there’s a new sheriff in town and he could care less.

Russia is already helping Iran....build a nuclear reactor which we know will produce fissle material for their nuclear weapons program.

Instead, we should be asking Russia to STOP helping Iran if they want us to withdraw the ABM project from Poland and Czechosolvakia. In other words, we are prepared to leave the Czech Republic hanging in the wind, show the World that we don’t keep our commitments, that were are cowards, back down to Russia and further degrade our own security.

Our country is run by morons of the worst kind.

Someone get to Obama's birth certificate and get this Kenyan out of office. We have terrorists, communists and Democrats conspiring together to tear down this country from the inside and out.

Barack Hussein Obama is all about absolute power. He won and now he RULES. In his mind, he is the only power and law in the world. The megalomania has been unleashed. Obama is not defending us from the abyss, he’s
purposely leading us into it.

It’s like he’s daring us to do something.

Iran Says Obama's Offer To Talk Shows US Failure

Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has demanded that the US apologise for what he termed "crimes" committed against Iran if it wants a better relationship with Tehran.

Iran says Obama's offer to talk shows US failure


US President Barack Obama's offer to talk to Iran shows that America's policy of "domination" has failed, the government spokesman said on Saturday.

"This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed," Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency.
"Negotiation is secondary, the main issue is that there is no way but for (the United States) to change," he added.

After nearly three decades of severed ties, Obama said shortly after taking office this month that he is willing to extend a diplomatic hand to Tehran if the Islamic republic is ready to "unclench its fist".

In response, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad launched a fresh tirade against the United States, demanding an apology for its "crimes" against Iran and saying he expected "deep and fundamental" change from Obama.

Iranian politicians frequently refer to the US administration as the "global arrogance", "domineering power" and "Great Satan".

Tensions with the United States have soared over Iran's nuclear drive and Ahmadinejad's vitriolic verbal attacks against Washington's close regional ally Israel.

Former US president George W. Bush refused to hold talks with the Islamic republic -- which he dubbed part of an "axis of evil" -- unless it suspended uranium enrichment, and never took a military option to thwart Tehran's atomic drive off the table.

The new administration of Obama has also refused to rule out any options -- including military strikes -- to stop Tehran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.

Iran denies any plans to build the bomb and insists its nuclear programme is solely aimed at peaceful ends.

Jihad Watch

A close aide to Ahmadinejad said Iran will not halt its nuclear activities as demanded by Obama's administration.

"We have no non-peaceful activities to suspend. All our activities are peaceful and under the supervision of the IAEA," Aliakbar Javanfekr told Reuters.
Javanfekr also dismissed UN resolutions demanding Iran suspend uranium enrichment. "We have passed that stage. We have rejected resolutions. Those resolutions were issued under US pressure. We work in the framework of international laws."
Javanfekr also rejected Obama's calls for Iran to "unclench its fist," saying its was "illogical to talk about unclenching fists when Iran is surrounded by American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq."
Referring to the Obama administration's suggestion of direct talks, Javanfekr said, "We are ready for talks with some preconditions ... including ending America's military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan," he said and repeated the demand for an apology.
Earlier Wednesday, Ahmadinejad called for "profound changes" in US foreign policy - including an end to support for Israel and an apology to the Islamic republic for past misdeeds.
Ahmadinejad also urged Washington to withdraw its troops stationed around the world. He said Iran would be closely watching what President Barack Obama's new administration does and would welcome a real shift in the US approach.

Wild Thing's comment............

The failed poicy of the Obama administration. But I thought Obama was going to fix everything? Hello Obama, it looks like the new work on Mt. Rushmore is going to have to be put on hold.

B.Hussein Obama's approach will do more harm to the US image abroad than anything in recent memory. We’ve known for decades that ANY appearance of conciliation with these cultists will be perceived as weakness and a sign of failure.

This is exactly why President Bush would not negotiate with them.

U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice restates President Obama's calls for direct negotiations with Iran

FOX news

President Obama did a quick pivot Monday, shifting his focus to foreign policy by contacting a handful of major world leaders -- including Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and French President Nikolas Sarkozy -- as his new U.N. ambassador restated the desire for vigorous and "direct diplomacy" with Iran.

Obama spoke with the foreign leaders ahead of a meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and his Middle East envoy George Mitchell, who was leaving immediately afterward for a trip to the region. Mitchell will go to Cairo, Egypt; Jersusalem, Israel; Ramallah in the West Bank; Amman, Jordan; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He will also visit Paris and London.

Back in the U.S., U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, who was confirmed last week for the post, said Monday that Iran's refusal to meet international obligations will increase pressure on Tehran to drop its nuclear ambitions and cooperate with the United States and global community.

Besides pursuing nuclear weapons, Iran has called for the destruction of Israel and support for Hamas, a terror group designated by the U.S., Israel and the European Union.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Rice's remarks are not a departure from statements made previously by Obama the candidate. She merely restated the administration position that no forms of communication should be off the table with the Islamic regime.

"Whether you were on the campaign trail or not, clearly this was something that generated a lot of coverage over the past two years. And I think Ambassador Rice was simply restating the position that the president had," he said.

Gibbs did not offer any specific initiatives on dealing with Iran, but said Rice's remarks should come as no surprise.

"This administration is going to use all elements of our national power to address concerns" about Iran's nuclear program.

As for the Mitchell trip, Gibbs said Mitchell was ahead overseas "to begin the process that the president promised to be actively engaged in, the peace process there in the Middle East."

Wild Thing's comment........

Well he did say he would do these direct talks with Iran so he is right on schedule, or maybe even ahead of schedule. I bet he could hardly wait to start in with the Muslims. Getting back to his own people and all.

Obama To Create Iran Outreach Post

Obama to create Iran outreach post

Washington Times

and FOX News

The incoming Obama administration plans to create a new position to coordinate outreach to Iran and is considering a number of senior career diplomats, State Department officials and Iran specialists say.

President-elect Barack Obama promised during his campaign to seek dialogue with Iran without preconditions in an effort to persuade Tehran to suspend its uranium enrichment program, but also has pledged to toughen sanctions.

A State Department official said the idea of naming a senior Iranian outreach coordinator was broached in the first transition meetings with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Mr. Obama's choice for secretary of state, and her transition team earlier this month.

"The idea is that the position should build on the existing diplomatic framework," the official said. He asked not to be named because a nominee has not been announced.

A spokeswoman for Mrs. Clinton declined to comment for this article. Brooke Anderson, a spokeswoman for the transition, also would not comment.

However, several Iran specialists said such a position was in the works.

"There is every indication that they are seriously considering going this way," said Patrick Clawson, deputy director for research at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a group that has warned of the dangers of Iranian proliferation.

Trita Parsi, president of the National Iranian American Council, an organization that supports U.S.-Iran dialogue, said that a special envoy position for Iran is planned.

The current administration has refused to negotiate with Iran unless Tehran first suspends its uranium enrichment program. However, in July, Undersecretary of State William Burns attended a meeting in Geneva with an Iranian nuclear negotiator along with senior diplomats from the other four permanent members of the U.N. Security Council - Britain, France, China and Russia - plus Germany.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Never heard the term “outreach” used in conjunction with those that have national holidays celebrating death to Israel, death to America! Hey Obama this is not the same thing as your community organizing and outreach programs in Chicago.

Obama Says "tough diplomacy with Iran "

Obama vows tough diplomacy with Iran


US president-elect Barack Obama vowed "tough but direct diplomacy" with Iran, offering incentives along with the threat of tougher sanctions to disarm the Islamic republic's nuclear drive.

"We need to ratchet up tough but direct diplomacy with Iran," he said in an interview aired Sunday on NBC program "Meet the Press."

As president from January 20, Obama said he would make clear to Tehran that the nuclear program was "unacceptable," along with its support of militant groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah, and its "threats against Israel."

Obama, whose offer of direct talks with Iran represents a break with three decades of US foreign policy, promised a "set of carrots and sticks in changing their calculus about how they want to operate."

Carrots would include economic incentives to the cash-strapped oil producer and greater access to the international trading system, he said.
Sticks comprised enlisting Iran's trading partners such as China, India and Russia "to agree that in order for us to change Iran's behavior, we may have to tighten up those (UN) sanctions."
"But we are willing to talk to them directly and give them a clear choice. And ultimately let them make a determination whether they want to do this the hard way or the easy way," Obama said.
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak spoke on Saturday to Obama's incoming secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, and defense secretary, Robert Gates, asking them to cooperate in facing up to Iran.

The United States and Israel say Iran is bent on developing an atomic bomb. Tehran insists the program is solely for civilian energy purposes, and has continued to enrich uranium in defiance of UN Security Council sanctions.

UPDATE: LOL and no surprise!

Iran Rejects Obama's Carrot and Stick Policy

Fox News

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran has rejected a suggestion by U.S. President-elect Barack Obama that a carrot and stick policy of economic incentives and additional sanctions might persuade the Iranian government to change its behavior.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hasan Qashqavi, said Monday that Obama's proposed policy was unacceptable and had failed in the past.

Obama told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that the international community should adopt a carrot and stick policy to alter Iran's behavior toward its nuclear program and support for militant groups like Hamas and Hezbollah. He also said the U.S. should increase direct diplomacy.

The U.S. accuses Iran of using its nuclear program as a cover for weapons development — a claim denied by Tehran.

Iran Said to Have Nuclear Fuel for One Weapon

Iran Said to Have Nuclear Fuel for One Weapon

NY Times....for complete article

Iran has now produced roughly enough nuclear material to make, with added purification, a single atom bomb, according to nuclear experts analyzing the latest report from global atomic inspectors.

The figures detailing Iran’s progress were contained in a routine update on Wednesday from the International Atomic Energy Agency, which has been conducting inspections of the country’s main nuclear plant at Natanz. The report concluded that as of early this month, Iran had made 630 kilograms, or about 1,390 pounds, of low-enriched uranium.

Several experts said that was enough for a bomb, but they cautioned that the milestone was mostly symbolic, because Iran would have to take additional steps. Not only would it have to breach its international agreements and kick out the inspectors, but it would also have to further purify the fuel and put it into a warhead design — a technical advance that Western experts are unsure Iran has yet achieved.

“They clearly have enough material for a bomb,” said Richard L. Garwin, a top nuclear physicist who helped invent the hydrogen bomb and has advised Washington for decades. “They know how to do the enrichment. Whether they know how to design a bomb, well, that’s another matter.”

Sarkosy Calls Obama's Iran Stance "Utterly Immature"

Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy

Sarkosy Has Called Obama's Iran Stance "Utterly Immature"


French President Nicolas Sarkozy is very critical of U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama's positions on Iran, according to reports that have reached Israel's government.

Sarkozy has made his criticisms only in closed forums in France. But according to a senior Israeli government source, the reports reaching Israel indicate that Sarkozy views the Democratic candidate's stance on Iran as "utterly immature" and comprised of "formulations empty of all content."

Obama visited Paris in July, and the Iranian issue was at the heart of his meeting with Sarkozy. At a joint press conference afterward, Obama urged Iran to accept the West's proposal on its nuclear program, saying that Iran was creating a serious situation that endangered both Israel and the West.

According to the reports reaching Israel, Sarkozy told Obama at that meeting that if the new American president elected in November changed his country's policy toward Iran, that would be "very problematic."

Wild Thing's comment..........

So, if Obama’s elected, France will be more conservative than us. God, that’s a depressing thought. And Obama said he would make the world like us. LOL I don't want everyone to like us only our friends and the heck with our enemies like Barack Hussein Obama.

Palin Disinvited From Iran Rally

Palin disinvited from Iran rally


The organizers of an anti-Iran rally Monday rescinded their invitation to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin after Democrats protested that her presence would turn the event into a political rally, McCain campaign and Jewish community sources said.

The Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations created a political tempest by inviting Palin to speak without clearing her invitation with another speaker, Senator Hillary Clinton. Clinton promptly dropped out of the event, saying it would be seen as unduly political. The McCain campaign then pressed Senator Barack Obama to join Palin on the stage in a show of unity against Iran.

The Obama campaign in turn offered to send Congressman Robert Wexler of Florida .

But the appearance that the non-partisan group was aligning with the Republican ticket put the group and its president, Malcolm Hoenlein, under heavy pressure from Jewish Democrats, including members of the conference, members of Congress, and the liberal group J Street, not to give Palin a platform, sources said. Hoenlein told the McCain campaign that he would have to rescind Palin's invitation or cancel the rally.

The organizers, I'm told, have formally disinvited all elected and political officials, but the move was about Palin.

"In order to keep the focus on Iranian threats and to ensure that this critical message not be obscured, the organizers of the rally have decided not to have any American political personalities appear," the Stop Iran Now coalition said in a statement. "This issue, opposition to a nuclear-armed Iran, is one which enjoys bipartisan support and the backing of the American people across the political spectrum. On this, all Americans stand together. We acknowledge and deeply appreciate those American political leaders who have been and remain prepared to stand with us as we collectively address the dangers of Iran's nuclear program and its support for terrorism globally."

Wild Thing's comment........

So, it was not “unduly political” when Hillary was going to show up by herself - but it is when Sarah is invited? Do the Dems have ANY idea how stupid they look?

Meanwhile, Iran thanks Hillary for toning down the important voices against it, and can’t stop rolling on the floor laughing at the stupidity of those who “supposedly” oppose it. Some of these organtizatikons that plan rallies and yes like this one they are not as dedicated as they appear.

The best support for Israel comes from Republicans, NOT Democrats. The Clinton's had Arafat visit them and they snubbed Netanyahu.

Before the flap, they had invited DEMOCRAT HILLARY CLINTON, who is on the campaign of Barack Obama.

So how did “Adding Sarah Palin”, who is Governor of Alaska, make it into a “political event”? It was already a “political event”.

This is just great NOT, what a thing for Achmedenijihad and his boys to see happening. This is beyond disgusting!

Obviously for some the chants, "Death to Israel" and " Death To America" have been forgotten and politics has been replaced with wanting a country to unite against terrorists.

Human Shield Movement To Iran Receives 10,000th Pledge

Human Shield Movement to Iran receives 10,000th pledge

payvand's news

The Human Shield Movement has announced it reached its 10,000th pledge member. The lucky guy to sign on as a Human Shield Volunteer number ten thousand is Steven Morris from Birmingham UK. Morris has pledged to use his body as a “human shield” against an “attack on Iran” from “neo-con” President Bush.

Steven Morris, the 10,000th pledge member of the movement said today

"I am fully committed to going to Iran to try and stop an attack on Iran. I demonstrated against the Iraq war and it made no difference. Having ten thousand Westerners will make the war-mongers think twice before they attack Iran. I do not support the Ahmadinejad regime but if we ignore international law and start bombing a sovereign nation that has not deviated from its obligations under the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty and offers no direct threat to any nation, the world will be an much more dangerous place."

A spokesperson for the movement, David Tyler said today;

"Travelling to Iran as human shields is the 'last resort' but it seems that an attack on Iran is not just a real possibility but an imminent reality. The military and political maneuvers all seem to point to one thing, The unproven allegations that Iran is arming insurgents in Iran, the labeling of the Revolutionary Guard as terrorists, the increased military spending, the build up of forces on the Iranian borders and the unverified and unverifiable claims about Iran's nuclear weapons program have left us in little doubt that time is running out. Traditional methods of protest are ineffective in the face of the neo-Con determination to implement their global vision. "
"We now have our 10,000th pledge member and whilst we recognize that many of these people will not be able to actually travel to Tehran, many have already arranged Iranian visas and are ready to travel to Iran at short notice. None of the shields want to die but all are unwilling to sit by and wait for politicians to launch another disastrous war in their name. It is up to each and every one of us to do everything in our power to prevent a dangerously misguided foreign policy. Many people cannot join the movement because of commitments to family and dependents but it is incumbent on all of us to do something to our opposition to war which will once again be carried out in our name."

Wild Thing's comment........

LOL....You can’t make this stuff up! Tell me then: What’s the downside of an attack on Iran’s nuclear weapons program? We destroy an evil regime’s WMD and rid the world of tens-of-thousands of mindless peacecreeps in one fell swoop! BRILLIANT!

None of these “10,000” would lift a hand to defend their own nations against Muslim intrusion, but would gladly die for Iran...I can’t even imagine how truly warped liberals really are - how they can even think the way they do....good riddance to moronic fools.

John Bolton: US should bomb Iranian camps

John Bolton, America’s ex-ambassador to the United Nations, has called for US air strikes on Iranian camps where insurgents are trained for war in Iraq.


Mr Bolton said that striking Iran would represent a major step towards victory in Iraq. While he acknowledged that the risk of a hostile Iranian response harming American’s overseas interests existed, he said the damage inflicted by Tehran would be “far higher” if Washington took no action.

“This is a case where the use of military force against a training camp to show the Iranians we’re not going to tolerate this is really the most prudent thing to do,” he said. “Then the ball would be in Iran’s court to draw the appropriate lesson to stop harming our troops.”

Mr Bolton, an influential former member of President George W Bush’s inner circle, dismissed as “dead wrong” reported British intelligence conclusions that the US military had overstated the support that Iran was providing to Iraqi fighters.

A US military spokesman revealed last week that the elite Quds Force of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards had drafted in personnel from Lebanon’s Hizbollah to train fighters from Iraq’s Shia militias.

Colonel Donald Bacon, a spokesman for the coalition in Baghdad, said captured fighters had told interrogators that thousands of Iraqi fighters were undergoing training in the Islamic Republic.

The main camp is located near the town of Jalil Azad, near Tehran, according to coalition officials.

The capture of Qais Khazali, a major figure in the Shia insurgency alongside Ali Mussa Daqduq, a senior Lebanese Hizbollah guerilla, last year yielded a treasure trove of information on Hizbollah’s activities in Iraq.

“Ali Mussa Daqduq confirmed Lebanese Hizbollah were providing training to Iraqi Special Group members in Iran and that his role was to assess the quality of training and make recommendations on how the training could be improved,” said Col Bacon. “In this role, he travelled to Iraq on four occasions and was captured on his fourth trip.”

Five Britons kidnapped in Iraq are believed to have been put under the control of Quds Force agents after failed attempts to barter the men for Khazali and Daqduq’s freedom.

The importance of the Quds Force to stability in Iraq was demonstrated last week when a five-member Iraqi delegation was sent to Tehran to meet with its commander, General Ghassem Soleimani. The delegation was despatched by the Iraqi government to plead for an end to Iranian meddling in its enfeebled neighbour.

Wild Thing's comment........

I wish the rest of the people in the Bush administration would think like Bolton or put him in charge. sigh

Bolton for President!! Bolten is someone I could actually get excited about. Have been trying to wade through his book, and it’s as if he wrote every word he ever thought. I don’t want to miss anything, so I can’t skip around. His observations about the State Dept. are even more scathing than the UN, which we already know is our enemy. The State Dept., even under Republicans, doesn’t change. That group really is wagging the dog. Both Powell and Rice were either co-opted, or they really are hard-core Libs at heart and this wasn’t a stretch at all to get along.

I agree that we need to have strategic strikes against Iran. They don’t think we have the chutzpah to do it.

Iraqi Officials Show Proof Of Iranian Support For Militias and Iran Says No More Talks

A woman walks past an anti-American mural on a wall of the former U.S. embassy in central Tehran May 1, 2008.
A senior Iranian official said on Saturday Tehran saw no need for more talks with the United States about Iraqi security until what he described as U.S. attacks on Iraqis stopped, Iran's Fars News Agency reported.

Iraq presents proof of Iranian meddling-official


May 2


An Iraqi delegation in Iran has confronted Iranian security officials with evidence that Tehran is providing support for Shi'ite militias battling Iraqi government forces, an Iraqi official said on Friday.

"They presented a list of names, training camps and cells linked to Iran," Haidar al-Ibadi, a member of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's Dawa party, told Reuters.
"The Iranians did not confess or admit anything. They claim they are not intervening in Iraq and they feel they are being unfairly blamed for everything going on Iraq," he said of the talks, which took place on Thursday.

Ibadi said he had been in contact with the delegation.

Washington has long accused Tehran of backing Shi'ite militias, particularly fiery cleric Moqtada al-Sadr's Mehdi Army, providing them with weapons, funding and training. It has displayed some of the weapons, including rockets and mortars.

The Shi'ite-led Iraqi government, however, has generally been more restrained in its criticism of its Shi'ite majority neighbour, which denies the charges and says it supports the government.

Maliki launched a crackdown on the Mehdi Army in the southern oil hub of Basra in late March, provoking a furious response by the militia in southern Iraq and Baghdad, including relentless volleys of Iranian-made rockets against the Green Zone government and diplomatic compound in the capital.

The U.S. military said this week that "very, very significant" amounts of Iranian weaponry had been found in Basra and Baghdad during the offensive. Some of those arms were made in 2008, a senior U.S. military official said on Friday.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said there had been a "sea change" in Baghdad's view of Iranian activity in Iraq since the discovery of the weapons.

"Basra changed it for the Iraqis. I'm not sure they believed it before. But they went to Basra and saw it first hand," he said.

Maliki's ruling United Iraqi Alliance, a coalition of Shi'ite Islamist parties, sent the delegation to Tehran to tell Iranian officials to stop backing the militias.

The delegation includes the deputy speaker of parliament, Khalid al-Attiya, Ali al-Adeeb, a lawmaker from Dawa, and Hadi al-Amari, a powerful figure in the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council, one of the biggest Shi'ite parties in Iraq.

And this is latest as of this posting........

TEHRAN (Reuters)

A senior Iranian official said on Saturday Tehran saw no need for more talks with the United States about Iraqi security until what he described as U.S. attacks on Iraqis stopped, Iran's Fars News Agency reported.

Washington accuses Tehran of funding, training and equipping militias in Iraq, a charge Iran denies. Tehran blames the presence of U.S. troops for violence and instability in Iraq.

"Should the Americans' attacks against civilians and the defenseless Iraqi people come to an end, Iran will consider their request for the fourth round of negotiations," Fars quoted the official as saying.

It said the official was a senior member of the negotiating team with U.S. officials but did not give his name.

"Under the current conditions, with the Americans' massive attacks on the Iraqi people in various cities, no need is felt for holding negotiations with that country about Iraq's security," the official said.

Wild Thing's comment.......

"If US savage attacks against the Iraqi people are stopped, we will examine the US request for a fourth round of talks," the unnamed official said"

Is the savage official too scared to be named? Friggin cowards and thugs.

They must be complaining about our attacks against Mookie’s Army. TUFF he is owned by Iran.

The nerve of them. Asking us to stop attacks on their own Iranian-backed criminal gangs, then they would consider re-opening talks with us. Hell, smart Americans don't want to bother talking to Iran in the first place. Only the failures like the nitwits in the Iraq Study Group, and the Hamas-supported Presidential candidate, the Obamessiah, think that talking to the Iranians is going to accomplish anything.

War News Our Media Does Not Tell Us About

Iraqi Citizens Capture Criminal Responsible for Detonating Bomb


Iraqi citizens, who witnessed a vehicle borne improvised explosive device that killed one Multi-National Division – Baghdad Soldier, turned over a criminal to the Iraqi National Police, May 1.

The citizens observed a man parking a vehicle and walking a significant distance away from it. They saw the man using a cell phone before the detonation. After the blast, Iraqi citizens chased the criminal and made a citizen’s arrest. The criminal was turned over to the Iraqi National Police, where he tested positive for explosive compounds.

Two other criminals were also apprehended after they were observed and identified watching the area when the blast occurred. They also tested positive for explosives.

“An American Soldier paid the ultimate price on behalf of his country, his family and the citizens of Iraq,” said Col. Allen Batschelet, the chief of staff for MND-B and the 4th Infantry Division. “We will not relent in our efforts to rid Baghdad of these criminal elements, and today, as many times before, we were aided in that struggle by the people of Iraq.
“The citizens of Iraq have repeatedly shown their displeasure for these criminals operating in their neighborhoods and are continuing to assist American forces to rid these criminals off the streets in Baghdad,” Batschelet said.

Wild Thing's comment........

I am thrilled to see this happening. It seems like it has taken forever but we are seeing more and more of this where the people themselves are fed up with the terrorists.

My only grip though is have you noticed how the kissing up to Islam has morphed from “terrorists” to “insurgents” to “criminals” in military-speak. That I don't like happening at all.

Ahmad Khatami Vows Crushing Response

Top cleric vows crushing response if Iran attacked


A top cleric on Friday vowed that Iran would deal a knock-out blow to what he called maniacs in the United States and Israel if they ever attacked the Islamic republic.

"If maniacs in Washington or Tel Aviv seek to take action, the Iranian nation will slap them so hard they will not get off the floor," hardline cleric Ahmad Khatami said in a Friday prayer sermon carried live on state radio.

The Pentagon on Wednesday denied reports of new plans for military options against Iran, which is accused by the United States of seeking nuclear weapons, sponsoring terrorism and meddling in Iraq.

Iran vehemently denies all the charges.

However, Washington has never ruled out a military option in a bid to thwart Iran's nuclear drive, which Tehran insists is solely aimed at peaceful energy production.

The cleric said the fact that the United States had not yet attacked Iran was because it "has not been possible, not that it did not want to."
"Death be upon" Israel for "celebrating the killing of innocent people" in the Gaza Strip, Khatami also said. Iran does not recognise Israel, and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for the annihilation of the Jewish State.
"Israel should know that these pressures will pave the way for another Intifada which will turn the Israelis' day into night," Khatami said.

Israel, the Middle East's sole if undeclared nuclear power, accuses Iran of seeking atomic weapons and has urged tougher punitive measures against Tehran, which is already under three sets of UN Security Council sanctions for its refusal to halt uranium enrichment.

Khatami also took a swipe at US Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton for her threat to "totally obliterate" Iran if it launched a nuclear attack on Israel.

"Shame on you that your presidents should be weak-willed servants of Israel," he said.

Ahmadinejad Denies al Qaeda’s 9/11 Attack On America

Ahmadinejad denies al Qaeda’s 9/11 attack on America

Debka file

In his most provocative anti-US speech to date, Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad raised doubts about whether al Qaeda's Sept. 11, 2001 attack on New York actually took place. He was addressing Iran’s Nuclear Technology day, April 8, DEBKAfile’s Iranian sources report. He went on to ask why the US had never released the names of the thousands of dead in the Trade Center attacks and how the most advanced security, intelligence and tracking devices in the world had failed to detect the hijackers’ planes before they struck the two New York towers.

Ahmadinejad is famous also for denying the Nazi Holocaust.

Announcing earlier that Iran had begun installing 6,000 new advanced (P2) centrifuges for uranium enrichment at Natanz, the Iranian president claimed his country’s nuclear program had passed the point of no-return technologically and politically.

America is disintegrating politically, militarily and economically, according to Ahmadinejad, who boasted that Iran’s nuclear achievement is a turning-point in history that will change the international order prevailing since World War II.

He asked why everyone jumps on Iran’s nuclear program when “a band of international pirates has stores crammed with nuclear bombs.”

DEBKAfile adds: By going full steam ahead with uranium enrichment, Iran is flouting three UN Security Council resolutions and standing fast against threats, sanctions and incentives offered by the West to halt a process capable of producing nuclear weapons.

Instead, Tehran is installing a new generation of advanced P2 centrifuges to replace the older P-1 machines and accelerate enrichment. He claims they are five times cheaper than the commercial machines.

The five Security Council members and Germany meet later this month for their umpteenth discussion on Iran’s nuclear activities. However, aside from “sweetening” their incentives package and tighter sanctions, they have run out of ideas for curbing Iran’s rapidly-advancing nuclear plans.

Ahmadinejad On Iraq Visit

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gestures during a press conference in Baghdad.

Ahmadinejad pokes Uncle Sam in eye on Iraq visit


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad poked his finger in the eye of Uncle Sam on his visit to Iraq on Sunday, displaying his country's regional influence in the face of 158,000 US soldiers in Iraq.

Top officials from the US-supported Iraqi government welcomed Ahmadinejad with hugs and kisses on a trip that opens a new phase between former enemies which fought a bitter war in the 1980s.

The televised lovefest was enough to give supporters of US President George W. Bush a seizure.

Ahmadinejad talked about regional stability upon arrival. He acknowledged Iraqis were going through "tough" times, but he was certain the Iraqi people would "overcome the situation".
"A united, powerful and developed Iraq is in the interests of all countries of the region," he said.

After a red-carpet welcome at President Jalal Talabani's Baghdad residence, Ahmadinejad travelled to the heart of the US presence in Iraq -- the Green Zone citadel -- for talks with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.

The premier's office is located less than two kilometres (just a mile) from the US embassy.

US officials went to great lengths to distance themselves from the visit, emphasising that Ahmadinejad was an Iraqi guest, and that the US military was not involved in any way.

Washington broke off diplomatic ties with Tehran in 1980 after Iranian students stormed the US embassy in Tehran and held its staff hostage.

US-led coalition soldiers, Iraqi soldiers and private guards provide security around the Green Zone, but the Iranian visitor was whisked inside under Iraqi official escort.

At Maliki's office, Ahmadinejad took a verbal swipe at Bush, who on Saturday accused him of "exporting terror".
Ahmadinejad's response: "Bush cannot solve US problems in the region by accusing others. Gone is the era of accusations. The Iraqi nation does not want the US.
"Six years ago there was no terrorism in our region. As soon as strangers (the Americans) put their foot in the region, the terrorists came here," he said.

And this has some more information...........


Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said overnight Iraq "does not want" the US and dismissed President George W. Bush's charge that Tehran supports militants in Iraq.

"Bush cannot solve US problems in the region by accusing others. Gone is the era of accusations. The Iraqi nation does not want the US," Mr Ahmadinejad said at a joint news conference with Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki in Baghdad.

Yesterday, ahead of Mr Ahmadinejad's landmark visit to Baghdad, Mr Bush accused him of "exporting terror" to Iraq.

Speaking at his ranch in Texas, the US president called on Iran to "quit sending in sophisticated equipment that's killing our citizens".

Washington accuses Tehran of supplying weapons to anti-US insurgents and training them. Iran denies the charges.

Mr Maliki said Mr Ahmadinejad's visit "represents the desire of both countries to deepen the joint interests".
"We had talks related to trade, industry. This is a very matured visit ... in the past there was tension," Mr Maliki said in an apparent allusion to devastating 1980-88 war between the two neighbours when Saddam Hussein's regime was still in power.
He said Mr Ahmadinejad's visit was a message to Arab states to develop ties with Iraq.

"This is a message to the neighbouring countries and a positive message to reinforce their relations with Iraq," Mr Maliki said.

He said his talks with Mr Ahmadinejad were "friendly, positive and full of trust".
"There was a high level of trust and I frankly say that the recent Iranian position towards Iraq is extremely helpful," Mr Maliki said.
"The visit will encourage and motivate neighbouring countries to visit Iraq."

Wild Thing's comment........

"Speaking at his ranch in Texas, the US president called on Iran to "quit sending in sophisticated equipment that's killing our citizens".

If so, why isn't Bush doing something about it instead of whining?

I wish the Iranian terrorist rat should have been arrested immediately upon setting foot in Iraq, for training, arming, bankrolling & instigating Iranian agents responsible for the murders of American, British, other Coalition forces coupled with Iraqi troops & civilians.

How the hell could they let this man into their country while he is supplying terrorists and arms that are killing OUR troops and also the people of Iraq. That little Mahdi worshiping terrorist exporter is boldly mocking US, and doing in right in front of our servicemen serving in Iraq. This is beyond appalling!

And B. Hussein Obama wants to have friendly talks with this guy! God help us!

Bush Chastises Iran On Gulf Intercept

(AFP/US NAVY/Kenneth R. Hendrix)


President Bush said Tuesday that Iran's confrontation with the U.S. Navy ships in the Persian Gulf was a "provocative act."

"It is a dangerous situation," he said in a White House news conference. "They should not have done it, pure and simple. . . . I don't know what their thinking was, but I'm telling you what my thinking was. I think it was a provocative act."

The top U.S. Navy commander in the area said an Iranian fleet of high-speed boats charged at and threatened to blow up a three-ship U.S. Navy convoy passing near but outside Iranian waters on Monday, as they headed into the Persian Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz. The Iranian fleet "maneuvered aggressively" and then vanished as the American ship commanders were preparing to open fire, said Vice Adm. Kevin Cosgriff. No shots were fired.

In Tehran, Iran's Foreign Ministry suggested the Iranian boats had not recognized the U.S. vessels. Spokesman Mohammed Ali Hosseini played down the incident. "That is something normal that takes place every now and then for each party," he told the state news agency IRNA.

But White House press secretary Dana Perino said the incident was hardly routine. "It was not normal behavior," she said. "It was out of the ordinary. It was reckless."

"It's just another point of reference for people in the region who are concerned about the behavior of Iran," Perino said of the skirmish early Sunday local time. But, she said that while Iran will be "part of the discussion" during Bush's travels, "it's certainly not the main reason for the trip."

Said Bush: "My message today to the Iranians is they shouldn't have done what they did."

Bush also said that a recent intelligence assessment on Iran, which determined that Tehran had halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003, sent a "mixed signal" to the international community on U.S. policy.

"Iran was a threat. Iran is a threat. And Iran will continue to be a threat if they are allowed to learn how to enrich uranium," he said.

The incident came as Bush got ready to leave Tuesday evening on an eight-day Mideast trip designed in part to counter Iran's influence in the region. Bush is expected to discuss the U.S. posture toward Tehran with Arab allies also worried about Tehran's desire for greater regional power.

Wild Thing's comment........

Maybe the U.N. will tell them to apologize. Or maybe this from Hans Blix: Or else we will be very angry with you … and we will write you a letter, telling you how angry we are. Ole Blix just loved giving Saddam as much time as he needed to move his WMD.

Iranian boats provoked 3 U.S. Navy Warships In The Strait Of Hormuz

The USS Hopper, seen in a file photo, was one of the ships harassed by Iranian boats, officials say.



Five Iranian boats made aggressive manoeuvres and showed hostile intent towards three U.S. Navy ships at the weekend in the Strait of Hormuz, a major oil shipping route in the Gulf, the Pentagon said on Monday.

The Pentagon said the incident was serious. It described the Iranian actions as "careless, reckless and potentially hostile" and said Tehran should provide an explanation.

In Tehran, the Iranian foreign ministry described the incident as ordinary.

"The example that happened on Saturday was similar to previous cases and is an ordinary and natural issue," Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini told Iran's official IRNA news agency.
"This is an ordinary issue that happens for the two sides every once in a while and, after the identification of the two sides, the issue is resolved."

The incident was the latest sign of tension between Washington and Tehran, at odds over a range of issues from Iran's nuclear programme to U.S. allegations of Iranian support for terrorism.

U.S. President George W. Bush is due to travel to the Middle East this week on a trip he has said is partly aimed at countering Iranian influence.

"We urge the Iranians to refrain from such provocative actions that could lead to a dangerous incident in the future," White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe said.

Wild Thing's comment........

It appears the Iranians are trying to downplay the event.

Published: 01.07.08, 19:01 / Israel News

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini defined the incident in the Strait of Hormuz between Iranian and US Navy vessels as “something normal taking place every now and then for each party and it is settled after identification of the two parties,” the IRNA news agency reported.

“The case happening on Saturday was similar to the past ones and it was a regular and natural issue,” said Hosseini. (Dudi Cohen)

Iran Wants World Islamic Court For War Crimes


Dec 4


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who accuses the West of monopolising power in world bodies, proposed on Tuesday setting up an international Islamic court to try war criminals and other human rights violators.

The president gave few details about his proposal, made at a meeting of judiciary chiefs from Islamic countries. But he repeated his assertions that bodies like the U.N. Security Council were being manipulated by the West.

"Today it is necessary to create an international Islamic court for pursuing and following international criminals, those who violates the rights of nations, war criminals and governments ..." Ahmadinejad said in a televised speech.

The international community already has two courts, one to deal with criminals and another that handles disputes between states. Both are based in The Hague.

The International Criminal Court was set up in 1998 to try cases such as war crimes. The International Court of Justice was established in 1946 to resolve disputes between countries and is the highest legal authority of the United Nations.

"Some international organizations, specially the Security Council, have not been formed based on justice. The way this council is governed is a symbol of injustice with global effects," the Iranian president said.
"In this council, some members with special rights are the complainant, the prosecutor and the judge all at the same time ... They enjoy complete immunity," he said.

Ahmadinejad, whose country implements Islamic law or sharia, has accused the United States and its allies, like Britain, of abusing their power after World War Two in imposing a world order that ignores the rights of others.

Ahmadinejad Offers To Be Observer At US Presidential Election

Ahmadinejad offers to be an observer at US presidential election


He denounces it as the "Great Satan" and frequently dismisses its power, but the overtures of the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to the US seem to grow ever more extravagant. Having failed to win a response with an 18-page letter to President George Bush or to a request to visit the site of the September 11 2001 attack on New York, Ahmadinejad has offered himself as an observer in next year's presidential election.

The proposal came in a speech to volunteers with the Basij, a pro-regime militia. He said he was prompted by a belief that Americans would vote against the current administration in a truly free poll. However, the terms of Ahmadinejad's offer appeared to betray some confusion about the potential candidates.

"If the White House officials allow us to be present as an observer in their presidential election we will see whether people in their country are going to vote for them again or not," he said. The US constitution prevents Bush from seeking a third consecutive term, while no member of his administration is expected to be in the running in next November's poll.

Bush and international human rights groups voiced doubts about the legitimacy of Iran's 2005 presidential election, which brought Ahmadinejad to power. More than 1,000 potential candidates were disqualified by the guardian council, a powerful body of clerics and judges.

Some domestic critics pointed out yesterday that Ahmadinejad's idea clashed with his government's opposition to allowing independent observers at Iranian elections. The interior ministry, controlled by one of the president's most hard-line allies, has rejected pressure for party representatives to be allowed to oversee proceedings at polling stations .

Wild Thing's comment........

Iran to Launch Home-Made Submarine, Destroyer

Iran to Launch Home-Made Submarine, Destroyer

Fars News Agency

Iranian army's naval commander said that the country is due to launch a home-made destroyer and a submarine on Wednesday.

Speaking to reporters in a press conference here on Saturday, Admiral Habib Sayyari further pointed to the production of missile-launching PT boats by the navy, and added, "A home-made destroyer called 'Jamaran' and a (home-made) submarine of 'Ghadir' class will launch operation on November 28."

He further stressed that his troops are closely monitoring military moves of trans-regional powers in the region, and said:

"No move in the Sea of Oman, the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormoz could remain hidden from our eyes. The naval force is in full control over the region and monitors all the military moves of the enemies in the region."

Asked if Iran would block the Strait of Hormoz in case of foreign invasion, the navy commander, said:

"We are prepared to defend the interests of the Islamic Republic against any kind of threat, but we have not made any such claim about closing the Strait of Hormoz. Yet, we are ready to take action to preserve our interests."

He described self-belief and self-reliance as the most important achievements of the Iranian naval forces, and said that his troops have made great achievements in training tactics and equipment manufacturing.

The commander further voiced opposition to the expansion of military capabilities in the Caspian Sea, saying:

"We view the Caspian as a sea of peace and friendship and we believe upgrading and expanding military equipment in this sea is incorrect. Yet, we are always prepared to defend the country's interests."

He said Iranian navy enjoys a powerful missile capability, adding that navy units are equipped with various types of surface and subsurface missiles and torpedoes.

The Admiral underlined that Iran's military capabilities serve as a deterrent and pursue defensive purposes, but meantime warned:

"If the enemy makes a mistake, he will receive such a powerful second strike that it won't be able to stand up."
He said a powerful and mighty Iran would bring peace and security to the region, adding, "We are willing to promote our interactions with regional states at all levels.
To end his remarks, the navy commander mentioned that his troops are scheduled to stage massive military exercises codenamed 'Unity 86' in the Sea of Oman in February, adding that new tactics and military tools and equipment would be tested during the maneuvers

Last One Martyred Is A Rotten Egg!

Iranian general warns of Gulf suicide bombings (AFP)


A top general in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards on Monday warned that the Basij militia were ready ‘if necessary’ to carry out suicide operations in the Gulf, amid rising tensions with the United States, the Fars news agency reported.

‘If necessary we will take advantage of the element of martyrdom-seeking,’ said Brigadier General Ali Fahdavi, deputy head of the Revolutionary Guards’ naval forces.
‘This spirit is prevailing now throughout the Revolutionary Guards,’ he added. The Basij militia is part of the Guards’ military apparatus.
‘They have taken an example from Shahid (martyr) Fahmideh,’ Fahdavi said,
referring to 13-year-old Iranian Hossein Fahmideh who became a national hero after blowing himself up under an Iraqi tank in the 1980-1988 war.
‘The scene of the Persian Gulf and strategic Strait of Hormuz is such that even a small operation can have a big impact,’ he added.

Wild Thing's comment........

Isn’t this latest threat, warning whatever like warning that the sun will rise in the east tomorrow? Yup, thought so.

Putin Doesn't Like US Sanctions On Iran ~ Get Real

The US imposes new sanctions on Iranian revolutionary guards and banks. Asia Times

Putin compared Sanctions to razor blades and those advocating it to madmen:

"Why worsen the situation by threatening sanctions and bring it to a dead end?" Putin said in a veiled reference to the US push for harsher international sanctions on Teheran.
"It's not the best way to resolve the situation by running around like a madman with a razor blade in his hand."

Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Tehran for the Caspian Sea summit last week was a key face-to-face meeting with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

A high-level diplomatic source in Tehran tells Asia Times Online that essentially Putin and the Supreme Leader have agreed on a plan to nullify the George W Bush administration's relentless drive towards launching a preemptive attack, perhaps a tactical nuclear strike, against Iran. An American attack on Iran will be viewed by Moscow as an attack on Russia.

Iran Forbids Public Displays Of Affection

Iran forbids public displays of affection
Morality police forbids 'inappropriate behavior of couples in public', including holding hands, kissing
ynet news

Iranian police have decided to crack down on "inappropriate behavior of couples in public", the semi-official FARS new agency reported Sunday.

"If someone walks in the street with his partner and commits an offense, we will deal with it," Ahmad Ruzbahani, chief of the morality police, was quoted as saying.

Islamic republic's 'modesty guard' plans to boost operations, detain young women and men straying from strict Islamic dress codes

Iranian law forbids women to be seen in public with men who are not family members. However, not all Iranians comply, and many meet their significant others in public parks.

Now police have decided to put an end to the growing phenomenon and forbid couples to hold hands in public. Ruzbahani said married couples were also called upon to "act modestly" in public.

"They should not act in an inappropriate manner or in a way that will attract attention," he said.

Other police officials said kissing in public was also strictly forbidden.

Last week it was reported that a young woman committed suicide after being arrested for a "moral offense". Zuhara Bani, a 27-year-old med student, was caught in a public park with her boyfriend.

She was taken to a detention facility, where she hung herself 48 hours later with a piece of cloth she had found.

The wide scale campaign to enforce "morality" in Iran, which was launched some six months ago, has evoked opposing responses within the Islamic Republic. The moderates criticized the regime, while the conservative sector of Iranian society lauded the campaign, saying it has contributed to an increase in personal security and morality.

Gen. Petraeus Accuses Iran of Fueling Iraq Violence

General Petraeus Accuses Iran of Fueling Iraq Violence
Fox News

Gen. David Petraeus laid further blame on Iran for violence in Iraq on Sunday, charging that Tehran's ambassador to Baghdad was once a member of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards force.

Petraeus added that Iran has been aiding Iraqi rebels with training and gifts of high-powered weaponry.

"They are responsible for providing the weapons, the training, the funding and in some cases the direction for operations that have indeed killed U.S. soldiers," Petraeus told reporters in Diyala Province.

Without citing any specific intelligence, Petraeus labeled Hassan Kazemi-Qomi, Iran's envoy to Baghdad, as a former member of the Revolutionary Guards Quds force. But he did not suggest that action would be taken against the ambassador.

"Now he has diplomatic immunity and therefore he is obviously not subject [to scrutiny]. He is acting as a diplomat," he said.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry dismissed the charges agaisnt Kazemi-Qomi “baseless” accusations, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency.

"They repeatedly link those arrested or killed in the bombardments with the Quds force. If they can, they announce names of those people or hand over the names to the Islamic Republic of Iran," Mohammad-Ali Hosseini told IRNA.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps has been under intense scrutiny by U.S. officials. In August, President Bush signed an executive order branding them as a “specially designated global terrorist.”

Iran returned the “favor” last week with a parliamentary order that gave the U.S. Army and the CIA the same distinction.

Separately on Sunday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tehran will not hold talks with Washington until the U.S. changes its attitude.

"We firstly say that we never asked for negotiations with the United States. Negotiations with the U.S. will happen when the U.S. government applies basic changes in its behavior and attitude," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.

Wild Thing's comment........

It must be very frustrating for Gen Petraeus when he would like to take care of a situation caused by Hassan Kazemi-Qomi and not be able to. Just like al-Sadr too, he has caused a lot of deaths of our troops and they can't do anything to him. I vote to let our military do whatever they need or want to do.

Iran's Parliament Signs Resolution to Label CIA, Army as 'Terrorist Organizations'

Iran's Parliament Signs Resolution to Label CIA, Army as 'Terrorist Organizations'
Fox News


Iran's parliament on Saturday approved a nonbinding resolution labeling the CIA and the U.S. Army "terrorist organizations," in apparent response to a Senate resolution seeking to give a similar designation to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The hard-line dominated parliament cited U.S. involvement in dropping nuclear bombs in Japan in World War II, using depleted uranium munitions in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq, supporting the killings of Palestinians by Israel, bombing and killing Iraqi civilians, and torturing terror suspects in prisons.

"The aggressor U.S. Army and the Central Intelligence Agency are terrorists and also nurture terror," said a statement by the 215 lawmakers who signed the resolution at an open session of the Iranian parliament. The session was broadcast live on state-run radio.

The resolution, which is seen as a diplomatic offensive against the U.S., urges Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's government to treat the two as terrorist organizations. It also paves the way for the resolution to become legislation that — if ratified by the country's hardline constitutional watchdog — would become law.

The government is expected to wait for U.S. reaction before making its decision. In Washington, the White House declined to comment Saturday.

On Wednesday, the Senate voted 76-22 in favor of a resolution urging the State Department to designate Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization. While the proposal attracted overwhelming bipartisan support, a small group of Democrats said they feared labeling the state-sponsored organization a terrorist group could be interpreted as a congressional authorization of military force in Iran.
The Bush administration had already been considering whether to blacklist an elite unit within the Revolutionary Guard, subjecting part of the vast military operation to financial sanctions.

The U.S. legislative push came a day after Ahmadinejad told world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly that his country would defy attempts to impose new sanctions by "arrogant powers" seeking to curb its nuclear program, accusing them of lying and imposing illegal penalties on his country.

He said the nuclear issue was now "closed" as a political issue and Iran would pursue the monitoring of its nuclear program "through its appropriate legal path," the International Atomic Energy Agency, which is the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog.

Tensions between the U.S. and Iran have escalated over Washington accusations that Iran is secretly trying to develop nuclear weapons and has been supplying Shiite militias in Iraq with deadly weapons used to kill U.S. troops. Iran denies both of the allegations.

Iran's President Lashes Out at US


A day before flying to New York to speak directly to the American people, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad struck a confrontational tone Saturday with a parade of fighter jets and missiles and tough warnings for the United States to stay out of the Mideast.

Three new domestically manufactured warplanes streaked over the capital during the parade marking the 27th anniversary of the Iraqi invasion of Iran, which sparked a 1980-88 war that killed hundreds of thousands of people. The parade also featured the Ghadr missile, which has a range of 1,120 miles, capable of reaching Israel.

Some of the missile trucks were painted with the slogans "Down with the U.S." and "Down with Israel." The parade also featured unmanned aerial surveillance drones, torpedoes, and tanks.

Tensions are high between Washington and Tehran over U.S. accusations that Iran is secretly trying to develop nuclear weapons and helping Shiite militias in Iraq that target U.S. troops.

"Those who prevented Iran, at the height of the war from getting even barbed wire must see now that all the equipment on display today has been built by the mighty hands and brains of experts at Iran's armed forces," Ahmadinejad said.

Protests against his Columbia appearance are planned at the university and the United Nations by demonstrators angry at his questioning of the Holocaust and declarations that Israel will cease to exist.

Iran and the U.S. have not had diplomatic ties since militants took over the U.S. Embassy following the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Since then, the cleric-led regime has vilified the United States as the "Great Satan."

At the parade, Ahmadinejad repeated his demand for foreign forces to leave the region and urged the United States to acknowledge it has failed in Iraq. Outside the 160,000 U.S. troops in Iraq, there are 40,000 troops on U.S. bases in Persian Gulf countries and another 20,000 in Mideast waters.

On the sidelines of the parade, the head of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards, Mohammad Ali Jafari, said the event highlighted the "might of Iran's armed forces to its enemies," adding that Iran is ready to retaliate if attacked.

"Iran has drawn up plans to confront enemies in the face of any possible attack," the official IRNA news agency quoted Jafari as saying.

The Bush administration is expected to soon blacklist a unit of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization, subjecting part of the vast military operation to financial penalties. The step would be in response to Iran's involvement in Iraq and elsewhere.

"Learn lessons from your past mistakes. Don't repeat your mistakes," he said in a warning to the United States over its push to impose more sanctions.

Hunter warns Columbia University Cancel Invitation to Iranian President

September 22, 2007 Mackinac Island, MI...Congressman Duncan Hunter issued a statement this morning from Mackinac Island directed to Columbia University.

"To host the leader of Iran when he supports terrorists that are moving deadly roadside bombs across the Iraqi border to be used against American troops is a slap in the face for the entire 165,000 men and women in Iraq and to those that have served before them," said Hunter.

"If President Lee Bollinger follows through with this hosting of the leader of Iran, I will move in Congress to cut off every single type of Federal Funding to Columbia University. If the left-wing leaders of academia will not support our troops, they, in the very least, should not support our adversaries."

"This event, following the slanderous action of MoveOn.org, depicting General Petraeus as "General Betray Us," in the New York Times represents the emergence of the extreme left-wing in American politics." Concluding, "I think it is time for the Democrat party to denounce this fringe element in their party," said Hunter.

Fred Thompson has issued this stern statement regarding Iranian Leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, his upcoming visit to the United Nations, and what we must do regarding the threat Iran poses:

"Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of the world's premier terrorist state, is speaking before the United Nations next week. He has also asked to visit Ground Zero. If I were President of the United States none of this would have been an issue--I wouldn't have let him into the country in the first place.

"It's time for the world to finally send a stern message to Iran. Ahmadinejad has called for the destruction of Israel, is supporting terrorist groups throughout the Middle East, and is responsible for supplying weapons to extremists who are killing US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. And with Iran's ongoing pursuit of nuclear weapons and development of long-range missiles, that country is a threat not only to the region and our allies, but to the entire free world. It's time for the United Nations to take more serious action against this terror regime.

"The Security Council needs to begin placing comprehensive, multilateral sanctions on Iran's economy, to include banning foreign investment, stopping export credits to companies doing business there, and prohibiting any business dealings with Iran's Revolutionary Guard. Iranian banks should be denied access to international banking and financial institutions, and World Bank loans should be suspended. All arms sales to Iran need to be halted. And travel by Iranian officials should be stopped and their assets frozen. Cutting off Iranian access to refined gas imports will certainly get Tehran's attention and cause them to reconsider their priorities. If the UN can't reach agreement on these measures due to continued Russian, Chinese or others' intransigence, then we need to work directly with our allies and go around the UN roadblock.

"The international community has been negotiating with Iran for more than four years to no avail in seeking to halt the mullahs' nuclear program. I believe strongly in diplomacy, but it has its limits, especially when the other side is made up of extremists. If we don't get serious and act now--before they build atomic weapons--the stakes will be even higher, and our hand much weaker. The United States and its allies cannot afford to let that happen. As president, I certainly will not."

Wild Thing's comment........

Reagan kept Arafat from going to the U.N. I realize Ahmadinejad is a head of state. And Arafat at the time was the leader of the terrorist organization, the PLO. But Ahmadinejad is a terrorist also even if he is the President of Iran.

Reagan knew what an insult the appearance of Arafat on US soil would be to the citizens of the country he loved. Unlike today’s ‘leaders’ he chose pride in his country over politics. Just like when he walked out of the talks in Iceland and insisted the “tear down this wall” line be left in a speech. And let’s not forget his little ‘joke’ when he was asked to test the microphone and responded with ‘the bombing begins in five minutes’!

I’ll never understand why would-be leaders don’t catch on that they can do so much to lead without ever firing a shot or invading a country. Like it or not, we set the tone for the rest of the civilized world when it comes to dealing with the increasing threat of Islamofacism. Great Britain would have been much more forceful in dealing with the kidnapping of their sailors in international waters, an open act of war, had they not seen us playing with PC ROE for four years.

Nope, God bless the Gipper for being one of a kind. I can only pray that the Lord will once again send us the leader we need for the times we are in.

And just this............
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

Ahmadinejad to speak to National Press Club

Ahmadinejad to speak to NPC
First-ever Videoconference Luncheon

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will speak and take questions at the National Press Club's first-ever videoconference luncheon at noon on Monday, Sept. 24.

Ahmadinejad will appear in the NPC Ballroom in Washington via videolink from New York, where he will be attending the UN General Assembly. After Ahmadinejad's speech, NPC President Jerry Zremski will ask questions handed up from the audience for a minimum of a half-hour.

"This will be, in essence, the first dialogue that President Ahmadinejad has had with the Washington press corps," Zremski said. "We're looking forward to hearing what the president has to say, and I am sure that plenty of Washington reporters have plenty of questions for him."

Zremski said he proposed the videoconference luncheon after the Club hosted a successful videoconference Newsmaker event with Taiwanese President Chen Shui-Bian in May. Chen was in Taipei as he answered questions from a room full of journalists in Washington.

"For a century now, the National Press Club's world-renowned luncheon series was limited to newsmakers who travel to Washington," Zremski said. "Now, though, thanks to our new Broadcast Operations Center, we can do a videoconference with important leaders anywhere in the world. We're pleased that President Ahmadinejad has made the time in his schedule to meet with us in this way."

The National Press Club's Newsmaker Luncheon series is one of the world's foremost speaker programs. Guests so far this year have included Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, First Lady Laura Bush and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Please note: the format of the luncheon with President Ahmadinejad will differ from the typical NPC luncheon program in many ways. President Ahmadinejad will be introduced at noon. His speech will last a half hour, and will be followed by 45 minutes of questions. Lunch will be served after the speech and question period.

Attendance at this luncheon will be limited to NPC members, their guests and accredited media only. Luncheon tickets are $16 for members and $28 for their guests. To reiterate, the only nonmembers to be admitted to this event will be accredited media.

To reserve a seat at the luncheon, call the NPC reservation line at 202-662-7501. Accredited media with questions should email Melinda Cooke at mcooke@press.org to reserve a seat.

NYC Rep. Calls on Condi to Deny Ahmadinejad Entrance to US
Human Events

Congressman Vito J. Fossella (R-NY) sent a letter to Secretary Rice yesterday asking the State Department to deny Ahmadinejad's visa. HUMAN EVENTS couldn't agree more with Rep. Fossella's sentiments. The letter is posted below.

The Secretary
Department of State
2201 C Street NW
Washington, DC 20520

Dear Madame Secretary,

It has been reported that Iranian President Mahmound Ahmadinejad has requested that he be allowed to visit the site of the 9/11 terrorist attacks when he travesl to the opening of the United Nations later this month. I believe that Mr. ahmadinehad has only one motivationfor wanteing to tour Ground Zero -- to mock the nearly 3,000 Americans who were killed on that day.

Mr. Ahmadinejad is the president of a country that is considered one of the world's most egregious state sponsors of terrorism. He is also a Holocaust denier who is committed to the destruction of Israel and fomenting terror and instability in the Middle East and beyond. He as American blood on his hands dating back decades from his alleged participation in the 1983 bombing of the marine barracks in Lebanon, which killed 241 soldiers, and his alleged role in the 1979 embassy hostage crisis. Evidence also links the Iranian regime to the delivery of improvised explosive devices (IED) to Iraq, which have killed countless American soldiers.

The last part of the letter I had to get from a PDF file...........

Wild Thing's comment........

Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism across the world, and the primary source in Iraq. To even think that we would entertain him visiting this country, even to talk the UN, is preposterous.

Ahmadinejad Is Pure Evil

This guy is totally EVIL! This terrorists is responsible for so many deaths of our trroops, Marines, the list goes on and on and then add in all the threats to desrroy America and Israel.

I saw this write up below at Drudge

Thu Sept 20 2007 16:11:22 ET

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will not press his plan -- just denied by New York City Police for security reasons -- to visit Ground Zero in New York City, he tells 60 MINUTES' Scott Pelley in an exclusive interview conducted today in Iran. The Iranian leader says he's "amazed" and skeptical that most Americans view his visit there as insulting as his intention was only to show respect. The interview will be broadcast on 60 MINUTES, Sunday Sept. 23 (7:00-8:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS television Network.

An excerpt from the interview follows:

PELLEY: Mr. President, do you intend to press your request to visit the World Trade Center site?

AHMADINEJAD: Well, it was included in my program. If we have the time and the conditions are conducive, I will try to do that.

PELLEY: But the New York Police Department and others do not appear to want you there. Do you intend to go there anyway?

AHMADINEJAD: Well, over there, local officials need to make the necessary coordinations. If they can't do that, I won't insist.

PELLEY: Sir, what were you thinking? The World Trade Center site is the most sensitive place in the American heart, and you must have known that visiting there would be insulting to many, many Americans.

AHMADINEJAD: Why should it be insulting?

PELLEY: But the American people, sir, believe that your country is a terrorist nation, exporting terrorism in the world. You must have known that visiting the World Trade Center site would infuriate many Americans.

AHMADINEJAD: Well, I'm amazed. How can you speak for the whole of the American nation?

PELLEY: Well, the American nation--

AHMADINEJAD: You are representing a media and you're a reporter. The American nation is made up of 300 million people. There are different points of view over there.

Ahmadinejad to Speak on Columbia University Campus

Ahmadinejad to Speak on Campus (Columbia University)

Columbia Spectator

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of Iran, has accepted an invitation to speak at Columbia from School of International and Public Affairs interim dean John Coatsworth, according to a spokesman.

The event is scheduled to take place on Monday, September 24--the same day that Ahmadinejad is scheduled to address the UN General Assembly--as part of the World Leaders Forum and will be sponsored by SIPA.

"Necessarily, on occasion this will bring us into contact with beliefs many, most, or even all of us will find offensive and even odious," University President Lee Bollinger said in a statement. "We trust our community, including our students, to be fully capable of dealing with these occasions, through the powers of dialogue and reason."
"Opportunities to hear, challenge, and learn from controversial speakers of different views are central to the education and training of students for citizenship in a shrinking and still dangerous world. This is especially true for SIPA students, many of whose careers will require them to confront human rights and security issues throughout the globe," Coatsworth said in a statement.

Registration for the event was closed down less than an hour and a half. A university spokesman said that 600 people could fit in the event.

Almost exactly one year ago, then-Dean of SIPA Lisa Anderson invited Ahmadinejad to speak on campus during the week of the World Leaders Forum on behalf of the School. Bollinger, upon learning of the event, chose not to lend it the sponsorship of the University as a whole. One day after news of the invitation broke, Anderson rescinded it, but not before many students and alumni spoke out both in favor and against the event.

Several student leaders received invitations today to speak tomorrow with University President Lee Bollinger regarding the event. Many leaders, including the heads of class councils, several club funding boards, and a number of clubs went into a discussion last soon after hearing the news of the invitation to form a statement.

"I think that first and foremost any dialogue is positive, so even though I may not agree with what Ahmadinejad says, I think any dialogue between him … and the U.S. is a positive step," Iranian-American Sheena Shirakhon, CC '08 and a member of Students against MIlitary Intervention in Iran, said of the invitation. "Mostly, that’s the result of my belief that war in Iran … would be horribly detrimental to the Iranain people, whether you support Ahmadinejad or not."

Wild Thing's comment.........

WTH is happening with this country??!!

Could you folks at Columbia University ask Ahmadinejad a question for me? When does he plan nuking Columbia University ???

I can't believe this. Columbia is a PUBLIC university? Spending OUR tax dollars to venue a man killing US troops?
Am I hallucinating???? Damn you Columbia students! This is war, we are at war with Islam and this country of mine had better start to WAKE UP! I have had it with traitors to our country, traitors to our troops, and these jerks think it is OK to do this kind of crap. It is NOT!

Russia and China Warn Against War With Iran

Bernard Kouchner [left] was rebuked by Sergei Lavrov [right] over his hawkish Iran remarks

Russia and China warn against war with Iran


Russia and China have criticised France's foreign minister Bernard Kouchner for talking of "war" with Teheran.

After meeting his French counterpart in Moscow, Sergei Lavrov, Russia's foreign minister, gave warning of the possible consequences of any military strike designed to disable Iran's nuclear programme.

"We are convinced that no modern problem has a military solution, and that applies to the Iranian nuclear programme as well," said Mr Lavrov.
"We are seriously concerned about increasingly frequent reports that military action against Iran is being seriously considered."

Mr Lavrov added that Russia supported the recent agreement reached between Iran and nuclear inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Earlier, China's foreign ministry also criticised Mr Kouchner for raising the possibility of war.

"We believe the best option is to peacefully resolve the Iranian nuclear issue through diplomatic negotiations, which is in the common interests of the international community," said Jiang Yu, an official spokesman.
"We do not approve of easily resorting to threatening use of force in international affairs."

America is now pressing for another UN Resolution which would tighten economic sanctions on Iran.

The trigger for this move was Teheran's continued enrichment of uranium, a process which could give Iran the essential material for a nuclear bomb.

While Russia and China have already supported two earlier sanctions resolutions, both are signaling that their support for a third cannot be taken for granted.

Yesterday, Mr Kouchner called for tougher 'precise' sanctions against the Islamic Republic's nuclear programme.

However, the French foreign minister also said that "everything should be done to avoid war."
"War is the worst that could happen," he said. "Everything should be done to avoid war. We have to negotiate, negotiate, negotiate - without cease, without rebuff."

Wild Thing's comment........

Interpretation: Russia and China will stomp their feet and throw a tantrum to try and protect their proxy in the Midle East.

"We are convinced that no modern problem has a military solution" said Mr Lavrov.

The Chechens thank you.

Arab Work Accident With Syria-Iran missile 'test'

'Dozens died in Syria-Iran missile test'

Jerusalem Post

Proof of cooperation between Iran and Syria in the proliferation and development of weapons of mass destruction was brought to light Monday in a Jane's Magazine report that dozens of Iranian engineers and 15 Syrian officers were killed in a July 23 accident in Syria.

According to the report, cited by Channel 10, the joint Syrian-Iranian team was attempting to mount a chemical warhead on a scud missile when the explosion occurred, spreading lethal chemical agents, including sarin nerve gas.

Reports of the accident were circulated at the time, however, no details were released by the Syrian government, and there were no hints of an Iranian connection.

The report comes on the heels of criticism leveled by the Syrains at the United States, accusing it of spreading "false" claims of Syrian nuclear activity and cooperation with North Korea to excuse an alleged Israeli air incursion over the country this month.

According to Global Security.org, Syria is not a signatory of either the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), - an international agreement banning the production, stockpiling or use of chemical weapons, or the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT).

Syria began developing chemical weapons in 1973, just before the Yom Kipper War. Global Security.org cites the country as having one of the most advanced chemical weapons programs in the Middle East.

Wild Thing's comment........

Man, I hate it when that happens. LOL “Ok, wait a minute. What’s this wire for?”

But um Syria and Iran are just innocent countries being wrongly harrassed by the US and Israel. NOT! I guess they were building it for peaceful civilian use. Ya think?

Global Security.org cites the country as having one of the most advanced chemical weapons programs in the Middle East.

They certainly don't seem very well advanced in how to use them without killing themselves.

Weapons Anyone? From Russia With Love ??

Malaysia to receive brand-new Russian SU-30MKM fighters

MOSCOW. (Yury Zaitsev for RIA Novosti)

Malaysia will receive the first 12 of its order of 18 Sukhoi Su-30-MKM Flanker fighters, the most advanced versions of the Su-27 warplane, before the year is out. The Su-30-MKM embodies the best achievements of the Russian aircraft industry and has the most advanced European avionics.

The Malaysian version is based on the Su-30-MKI, earmarked for India, but features different equipment and an electric remote control system.

Reports of sale to Iran of Su-30s rattle Israelis

Russia’s arms export agency Rosoboronoexport disclosed recently that it plans to sell Iran up to 250 advanced Su-30 fighter bombers, dramatically increasing the power projection capability of Iran and possibly giving it a nuclear delivery vehicle other than missiles.

The sale was disclosed at the Paris Air Show and reports stated that the sale could include advanced S-300 air defense missiles as part of a modernization aimed at upgrading the aging Iranian air force.

U.S. sources said the sale of Su-30s in such large numbers to Iran would open up sales to Iran of Chinese versions of the jet, known as the J-11 that would include new precision guided missiles and munitions that the Chinese are building for its aircraft.

Iran may also purchase Il-78 refueling tanker aircraft that would be part of the long-range aerial assault capability.

Wild Thing's comment........

Well these that Iran is going to buy could be Raptor food maybe. Putin is first and foremost KGB, and Israel has a right to be rattled. Also this is very short-sighted on Russia’s part, the Iranian government is not trustworthy. Well heck few governments are, so I better take that part back. haha

Ahmanutjob Giving Us The “neener-neener-neener"

US attack on Iran 'impossible'
Times of India

TEHRAN: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday dismissed the chance of a US attack against Iran as impossible, saying that Washington already had enough trouble in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"There is in no way the possibility of such an attack by the United States. Even if they take such a decision they cannot implement it," he told a news conference. "They have to solve the question of Iraq and Afghanistan."

"Politicians do not deal with imaginary things. They deal with reality and this is propaganda. This (an attack) is not

on the agenda of US officials and it cannot be," he said.

The White House has never ruled out attacking Iran, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Monday that Iran risked being bombarded if the crisis over its atomic programme was not solved.

Wild Thing's comment........

Well, duh. Unless Iran does something stupid. Which, unfortunately, they might. Yeah. It’s absolutely impossible for a pilot to launch from his carrier, cruise a couple of hours max, and drop one down right on the head of Ahmadinejad.

Iran's Guards: We'll 'Punch' US ~ LOL

Iran's Guards: We'll 'Punch' US

Tehran ( AP)

Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards said they would not bow to pressure and threatened to "punch" the U.S., in their first response to Washington's plan to list them as a terrorist organization, newspapers reported Saturday.
Local press in the Iranian capital of Tehran quoted Revolutionary Guards leader Gen. Yahya Rahim Safavi saying that he could understand Washington's ire toward the group because of their "leverage" against the U.S.

"America will receive a heavier punch from the guards in the future," he was quoted as saying in the conservative daily Kayhan. "We will never remain silent in the face of U.S. pressure and we will use our leverage against them."

There was no elaboration on what Safavi meant by the punch or the organization's "leverage."

Washington has accused the Guards of supporting militias and insurgent groups attacking U.S. forces in Iraq—charges Iran denies.

The fact that the remarks, made on Thursday in the central Iranian city of Isfahan, appeared in local newspapers rather than the official state news outlets suggest the comments are for domestic consumption.

Meanwhile, other Iranian officials continued to speak out against Washington's move to register the group as a terrorist organization, with a government spokesman calling the claims "baseless," on the Web site of the state broadcasting company.

"The claims of the U.S. are baseless and have no takers around the world," he said Saturday, noting that "the U.S. has endangered the world many times under the excuse of fighting against terrorism."

On Tuesday, Bush administration said the U.S. planned to list the Guards as terrorist group in order to squeeze Iran.

The move was seen as an effort to pressure businesses the corps is thought to control, from construction to oil sectors. It would be the first time the U.S. would put a foreign government's military agency on the list, which includes the al-Qaida network and the militant groups Hamas and Hezbollah.

Iranian armed forces spokesman Gen. Ali Reza Afshar hit out precisely against this attempt to declare a state body terrorist in an editorial Saturday in the country's largest circulation newspaper, calling it illegal.

"America's long time hostility against the Guard is clear and understandable, but this move against organization that is part of Iran's armed forces is illegal," he wrote in the daily Hamshahri.

The estimated 200,000-strong Revolutionary Guards is an elite force separate from Iran's regular military and has its own ground, naval and air units.

US Considering Terrorist Label for Iran's Revolutionary Guards

US Considering Terrorist Label for Iran's Revolutionary Guards
voa news

The Bush administration is reported to be ready to declare Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps a "specially designated global terrorist" organization.

If the move goes forward, it would be the first time the United States has added an armed forces unit of any sovereign government to its list of terrorist groups. The designation allows the U.S. to freeze any assets the group, its members, or subsidiaries may have in the U.S.

According to the reports published late Tuesday on the web sites of the Washington Post and the New York Times, the move reflects escalating tensions between Washington and Tehran over Iran's nuclear activities and U.S. allegations of Iranian support for insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Tehran denies all U.S. allegations and says its nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, senior administration officials say a final decision has not yet been made, and that there still is an internal debate whether to target the entire Iranian corps or only its al-Quds force wing.

In recent weeks, U.S. officials have complained of growing involvement of the al-Quds force in providing support for insurgents.

Iran has been on the U.S. State department's list of state sponsors of terrorism since May 1984.

Wild Thing's comment........

Why “consider” it???? Just do it. Stop playing nice with people. I hope it’s not just talk. I think a confrontation with Iran is unavoidable...I’d rather see it on our terms and schedule.

The Wolf Offers To Help With The Chicken Coop

Getting to know you, getting to know all about you ... getting to like you ... hoping ....

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, right, walks hand in hand with visiting Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki during their meeting in Tehran, Wednesday. Maliki met Iranian leaders for talks aimed at winning Tehran's unequivocal support for restoring security to his war-torn country.

Iran promises security help for Iraq

TEHRAN, Iran - Iranian officials told Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Thursday that only a U.S. pullout would bring peace to his nation and claimed the Tehran government was doing its best to help stabilize neighboring Iraq.

Al-Maliki said decisions about an American pullout were between Baghdad and Washington. This issue "belongs to the Iraqis only and it is related to the readiness of the Iraqi armed forces and their ability to take over security responsibilities," he told The Associated Press during the visit.

Al-Maliki has long played a delicate balancing act in the bitter rivalry between his two allies, putting off Iranian calls for an American pullout while balking at U.S. pressure to take a tougher line against Tehran.

President Bush said he hoped al-Maliki's message to Tehran would be the same as the U.S. message — that Iran should halt the export of sophisticated explosive devices used to attack U.S. troops in Iraq or "there will be consequences."

Al-Maliki did not say whether he pressed Iran on the U.S. accusations, and the first two days of his three-day trip aimed at enlisting Iranian help in pacifying Iraq appeared to bring no concessions from America's greatest rival in the region.

Instead, Iranian officials used the spotlight to decry American involvement in Iraq, and promote their increasingly close ties with al-Maliki's government.

Meeting with al-Maliki, a fellow Shiite, in the sect's holy city of Mashhad, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that "occupation forces are responsible for the problems in all aspects of life" in Iraq. A staunch opponent of the U.S., Khamenei predicted that the "U.S. policy toward Iraq will definitely fail."

Al-Maliki also had a warm meeting Wednesday evening with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, walking hand-in-hand with him into an ornate meeting room.

Iranian support boosts al-Maliki amid Iraq's political turmoil — particularly rumors of maneuvers among his fellow Shiite politicians to remove him. But the close ties with Tehran could further disillusion Sunni Arabs, who in the past weeks have pulled out or boycotted his government, damaging attempts at reconciliation among Iraq's sects.

Khamenei said Iranian officials want Iraq's government "to be for all Iraqi sects: Kurds, Sunni and Shiite."

Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said Ahmadinejad had expressed support for continuing talks between Iranian and American officials in Baghdad about stabilizing Iraq.

"We understood from the (Iranian) president that there is a real desire to continue this dialogue and especially on the borders issue," Zebari said, referring to cross-border movement of militants.

But Iranian officials continued to make clear in the talks that U.S. forces should go, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said.

"The United States won't get out of the complex situation it has created for itself in Iraq unless it corrects its policies," Mottaki said, according to IRNA, Iran's official news agency. He said that when Iraqi forces run security instead of the Americans, "one can be hopeful that effective steps will be taken and that one can be hopeful of talks in the future."

Iraqi and Iranian officials also sought to increase the already surging economic ties between the two oil-rich countries.

Under some of the deals being worked on, Iran would build a power station in the Shiite Sadr City enclave and supply Iraq directly with electricity. Iran would also provide 400,000 tons of kerosene and liquid gas this year.

Sadr City has been the scene of fierce fighting between the U.S. and Shiite militants, most recently on Wednesday when U.S. aircraft and soldiers attacked Shiite militia bomb makers accused of links to Iran. The U.S. military said 32 suspected militants were killed and 12 were captured.

Iraq has only partially backed the U.S. claims that Tehran is behind attacks on U.S. troops, saying it has not ruled out an Iranian role. Iran has denied the charges, most recently on Thursday in Damascus, Syria, at a gathering of officials from Iraq and its neighbors as well as the United States and other countries.

There was little word on the pledges al-Maliki obtained during his Iraq trip, but according to an Iraqi official traveling with him, Iran promised to help convince its ally Syria to take a more "positive role" in keeping Iraq's security. The official spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to talk to media.

Iraq and the U.S. have accused Syria of allowing Sunni insurgents to cross its border into Iraq.

Iran To Buy Jets From Russia

Reports: Iran to buy jets from Russia
Jerusalem Post

Israel is looking into reports that Russia plans to sell 250 advanced long-range Sukhoi-30 fighter jets to Iran in an unprecedented billion-dollar deal.

According to reports, in addition to the fighter jets, Teheran also plans to purchase a number of aerial fuel tankers that are compatible with the Sukhoi and capable of extending its range by thousands of kilometers. Defense officials said the Sukhoi sale would grant Iran long-range offensive capabilities.

Government officials voiced concern over the reports. They said Russia could be trying to compete with the United States, which announced over the weekend a billion-dollar arms sale to Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states.

Despite Israeli and US opposition, Russia recently supplied Iran with advanced antiaircraft systems used to protect Teheran's nuclear installations. At the time, Moscow said it reserved the right to sell Iran weapons, such as the antiaircraft system, that were of a defensive nature.

The Sukhoi-30 is a two-seat multi-role fighter jet and bomber capable of operating at significant distances from home base and in poor weather conditions. The aircraft enjoys a wide range of combat capabilities and is used for air patrol, air defense, ground attacks, enemy air defense suppression and air-to-air combat.

After years of negotiations, the Indian Air Force in 1996 purchased 40 Sukhoi-30s and in 2000 acquired the license from the company to manufacture an additional 140 aircraft.

Iraq Minister: New U.S.-Iran Talks Set

Iraq Minister: New U.S.-Iran Talks Set

Baghdad (AP)

A new round of U.S.-Iran talks focusing on the deteriorating security situation in Iraq will be held Tuesday in Baghdad, the Iraqi foreign minister said.
"I can confirm that the United States and Iran have agreed to meet on July 24th in Baghdad," Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.

The Bush administration had said Tuesday that it was ready to hold a second round of direct talks with Iran, and Iran said it had accepted a U.S. invitation for talks.

Zebari's comment was the first official confirmation of a date.

Wild Thing's comment.......

What the hell does the Bush Admin. think they are doing ??? Are we going to once again politely ask them to stop shipping weapons into Iraq that are killing our soldiers, as well as to stop training the people who kill our soldiers?

This is turning into "stop, or I'll say stop again!"

And note also how the media doing this story has to say keep claiming it’s deteriorating in Iraq. The surge has been working but they still want to lie.

Iran Begging World To Deal With Them

The latest on Iran:

Iran locked on to 600 targets in Israel
Israel Today

Iran has marked 600 targets for its long-range missiles inside Israel, the Qatari newspaper Al Watan reported on Sunday.

According to the report, Iran is threatening to hit the Jewish state with a massive missile strike if either Israel or the US attack the Islamic Republic or its allies in Syria.

Recent political talk in Jerusalem and Washington indicate the time is rapidly approaching that Israel and the US will have no choice but to intervene militarily to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

Likewise, Israeli military experts are predicting a full-scale war with Syria sometime in the coming six months, possibly set off by a renewal of low-level cross-border Hizballah aggression.

Teheran says it will continue its nuclear activities
Iranian missiles aimed at US base found in Iraq
Jerusalem Post

Meanwhile, the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Watan reported that Iran claimed to possess enough missiles to strike 600 Israeli targets and that it wouldn't hesitate to use them in the wake of an attack by the United States or Israel.

The report followed two claims by the US army over the weekend implicating Iran in attacks against US forces in Iraq.

According to an announcement on Saturday night, US troops in Iraq uncovered a field containing 50 Iranian-made rocket launchers, all aimed at a US army base.

The discovery came after the US claimed that an explosively formed penetrator - a high-tech device that the US military believes is smuggled from Iran - was used against US forces in the Baghdad area earlier Saturday.

Vp Cheney Being Resisted by Condi Rice and Robert Gates, but Bush now listening to Cheney
VP Cheney on Iran

The White House claims that Iran, whose influence in the Middle East has increased significantly over the last six years, is intent on building a nuclear weapon and is arming insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The vice-president, Dick Cheney, has long favoured upping the threat of military action against Iran. He is being resisted by the secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, and the defence secretary, Robert Gates.

Last year Mr Bush came down in favour of Ms Rice, who along with Britain, France and Germany has been putting a diplomatic squeeze on Iran. But at a meeting of the White House, Pentagon and state department last month, Mr Cheney expressed frustration at the lack of progress and Mr Bush sided with him. "The balance has tilted. There is cause for concern," the source said this week.

Wild Thing's comment........

Their ideology tells them to kill, murder and destroy all Jews and Christians. Their demented minds won’t allow them to see how wrong they are. They are a real danger!

One of the concerns I have is that as the muslim and mexican illegal alien presence grows in the US, support for Israel will decline, add in to that factor the NAU when it is set up. When America goes down under this NAU idea, Israel will go down too. They very well might have it where Israel has to be denied help from America. I pray this does not happen, but it does make one think it might.

Too Sexy For Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki

Wild Thing's comment.........

The female violinist should have gone and changed into a burka like this.
Below is the story of why.


Iranian Walks Out Of Dinner With Condi

Iran's foreign minister walked out of a dinner of diplomats where he was seated directly across from Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, on the pretext that the female violinist entertaining the gathering was dressed too revealingly.

"I don't know which woman he was afraid of, the woman in the red dress or the secretary of state," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Friday, regarding the actions of Iran's Manouchehr Mottaki.

Rice herself was questioned by reporters about the lack of a direct conversation with Mottaki, even though it appeared she was "chasing" him.

"Uh, well, you could ask him why he didn't make an effort," she replied. Then she laughed. "Look, I'm not given to chasing anyone."

So the face to face between Rice and Mottaki never happened, reports CBS News correspondent Charlie D'Agata. Instead, U.S. and Iranian delegations met at a lower, "expert" level, which while significant, is not a first.

"Our officials did, as they did in Baghdad, have an opportunity to exchange views about the substance of this meeting," Rice said.

The dinner episode Thursday night amid a major regional conference on Iraq perfectly revealed how hard it was to bring together the top diplomats of the two rival nations.

Going into the summit, the Iraqi government had hoped for a breakthrough meeting between Rice and Mottaki. Instead, their only direct contact was a wary exchange of pleasantries over lunch Thursday, punctuated by a wry, somewhat mysterious comment by Mottaki.

Mottaki walked out of the diplomats' dinner on the pretext that the female violinist entertaining the gathering was dressed too revealingly.

Angry Blair ‘disgusted’ With Iran

Angry Blair ‘disgusted’ with Iran

Tony Blair voiced his “disgust” with Iran last night after Tehran broadcast a second televised “confession” by a captured Royal Navy sailor, apologising for “trespassing” into Iranian waters.

A clearly angry British prime minister said the Iranians’ “manipulation” of the British prisoners would “fool no one”.

He insisted the crisis could only be resolved by the release of all 15 sailors and Royal Marines seized by the Iranians last Friday.

At the same time, Mr Blair appeared to be digging in for a prolonged stand-off — warning that Britain would have to show “patience” as well as “firmness and determination” in its handling of the crisis.

Certainly Tehran appeared to be in no mood to compromise. It followed the release of the footage of Royal Navy sailor Nathan Thomas Summers with a third letter purportedly written by Leading Seaman Faye Turney complaining that she had been “sacrificed” to British and US policies.

The letter also said the British detainees had received better treatment than Iraqi prisoners held by Britain and the US at Abu Ghraib.

In the latest footage, shown on Iran’s Arabic language station Al Alam, Mr Summers is shown saying: “I would like to apologise for entering your waters without any permission.” However there is a clear edit after the word “apologise”, suggesting the extract was spliced together from two separate clips.
In other clips, he said “We trespassed without permission”, before saying their treatment by the Iranians had been “very friendly” and he was “grateful” no harm had come to them.

He is also shown sitting alongside LS Turney — the one woman in the party — and another British serviceman identified as Royal Marine Adam Sperry.

Mr Blair, on a visit to Manchester, angrily denounced the broadcast of the latest footage.

“I really don’t know why the Iranian regime keep doing this. All it does is enhance people’s sense of disgust,” he said.
“Captured personnel being paraded and manipulated in this way doesn’t fool anyone. What the Iranians have to realise is that if they continue in this way, they will face increasing isolation.”

Iranian television has already shown a similar interview with LS Turney, as well as two letters she was said to have written to her family and to a “representative of the House of

Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett, meeting EU ministers in Germany, said she was “quite horrified” by the latest footage which she denounced as “blatant propaganda”.

I think Churchill would be taking a stronger stand on this. He would be doing more then saying they needed to show “patience”.

Blair Calls Cobra Team In As Crisis In Iran Escalates

Blair convenes Cobra team as crisis in Iran escalates

Sunday March 25, 2007

The official notification, delivered in secure calls yesterday morning to senior Whitehall figures, was the latest dramatic behind-the-scenes move to get to grips with a crisis that is now engulfing the government.

After a day of shadow-boxing with a notoriously slippery regime, Tony Blair is set to up the ante: the plight of the Shatt al-Arab 15 is officially a crisis and he will need the Cobra team to handle it.

The clutch of VIPs will gather in an operations room several floors below Downing Street as early as this afternoon to plot an escape from a military spat that now threatens to become an international incident.

The decision came just 24 hours after the crew of HMS Cornwall had been caught in the confusion of direct confrontation with Iranian vessels in the searing heat of the Gulf.

As the crew members were surrounded in their two rubber dinghies, the Cornwall's commander, Commodore Nick Lambert, frantically radioed back to his own top brass for instructions.

The response to the inquiry, which had been immediately patched through to Ministry of Defence headquarters in Whitehall, was to hold fire.

The order to show restraint has been observed throughout the forces and the British government in the 48 hours since, but it is unclear how long both sides will be able to maintain control.

Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett's first response to the gathering crisis on Friday was to keep to diplomatic conventions. After a hurried phone call to Blair, she immediately summoned Iran's ambassador, Rasoul Movahedian, to her office to explain their behaviour.
After a meeting described by officials as "brisk but polite", Beckett emerged to stress that she was "extremely disturbed" by events.

It was an understated description of the deep concern now gripping the government. Not only was Blair's administration alarmed at the risk to the 15 military personnel, which included at least one woman, but it was in no doubt over Tehran's ability to use their plight to make a wider point.

During a flurry of diplomatic activity in the hours after the snatch, the Iranians' rhetoric repeatedly elevated their action, and the alleged motives of the British, to a multinational affair. It was the eve of a second UN Security Council resolution imposing sanctions over Iran's refusal to halt its programme to enrich uranium. The Shatt al-Arab 15 were, from the start, pawns in a perilous international game.

"It looks like too much of a coincidence," a senior Foreign Office insider confirmed.

The response was a no- nonsense demand for Iran to relent - and Britain freely used the international community to back up its case. Beckett dispatched the UK chargé d'affaires, Kate Smith, to confront the government in Tehran, armed with the insistence that the British sailors had been in Iraqi waters.

In the meantime, Blair made a personal call to European allies, including EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana, to secure a public denunciation of the Iranians' actions.

"It was impressed on everyone how important it was to raise the diplomatic temperature, rather than keep a low profile and let them make a song and dance of the situation," one defence official said.
"There is nothing to be gained in provoking a confrontation, because that would be playing into their hands. But neither should we let them have it all their way. We tried that before and we're still trying to get our kit back."

The smaller-scale precedent, the taking of six British marines and two sailors on the same waterway in June 2004, was a painful lesson. The personnel were only returned after they had been paraded blindfold on Iranian television and admitted entering Iranian waters illegally. Three years on, the government is still pressing Iran for the return of its boats and kit, including valuable radar equipment.

The degree of concern felt across Whitehall was demonstrated yesterday, when Movahedian was called back to the Foreign Office, this time to see Beckett's minister, Lord Triesman. The British were clearly attempting to warn off Tehran before it could begin to use the servicemen and women as a significant propaganda tool.

It was, however, a race against time - and through it all, the diplomats and the politicians were acutely aware that Tehran has built a foreign policy on disregarding diplomatic niceties.

Top level COBRA is an acronym for Cabinet Office Briefing Room A, where its meetings are held.

Tony Blair, senior ministers, police and security chiefs all take part. It is called after events such as 9/11, 7/7 and can evoke emergency powers such as suspending Parliament or restricting movement.

Wild Thing's comment........

I only can pray that these sailors will be safe and unharmed and not killed.

Anyone feel like the worm is about to turn and the Iranians arent going to like the direction it takes?

Blair while in Berlin said:

"Tony Blair has called the seizure of British sailors by Iran "unjustified and wrong," and rejects the claim that they strayed into Iranian waters.

Speaking to journalists in Berlin, the Prime Minister said he hoped the Iranian Government understood the "fundamental" nature of the issue.

"There is no doubt at all that these people were taken from a boat in Iraqi waters.

"It is simply not true that they went into Iranian territorial waters, and I hope the Iranian government understands how fundamental an issue this is for us.

"We have certainly sent the message back to them very clearly indeed. They should not be under any doubt at all about how seriously we regard this act, which is unjustified and wrong."

Iran Plans To Bargain Deal With Sailors and Also Try Them For espionage

Iran: British sailors 'bargaining chips'


An Iranian military official said Saturday afternoon that the 15 detained British sailors "confessed" to illegally entering Iranian waters.

The sailors, taken at gunpoint Friday by Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Al Quds soldiers were captured intentionally and are to be used as bargaining chips to be used for the release of five Iranians who were arrested at the Iranian consul in Irbil, Iraq by US troops, an Iranian official told the daily paper Asharq al-Awsat on Saturday.

Iran ‘to try Britons for espionage’

FIFTEEN British sailors and marines arrested by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards off the coast of Iraq may be charged with spying.

A website run by associates of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president, reported last night that the Britons would be put before a court and indicted.

Referring to them as “insurgents”, the site concluded: “If it is proven that they deliberately entered Iranian territory, they will be charged with espionage. If that is proven, they can expect a very serious penalty since according to Iranian law, espionage is one of the most serious offences.”

The warning followed claims by Iranian officials that the British navy personnel had been taken to Tehran, the capital, to explain their “aggressive action” in entering Iranian waters. British officials insist the servicemen were in Iraqi waters when they were held.

The penalty for espionage in Iran is death. However, similar accusations of spying were made when eight British servicemen were detained in the same area in 2004. They were paraded blindfolded on television but did not appear in court and were freed after three nights in detention.

In addition, a senior Iranian military official said Saturday that the decision to capture the soldiers was made during a March 18 emergency meeting of the High Council for Security following a report by the Al-Quds contingent commander, Kassem Suleimani, to the Iranian chief of the armed forces, Maj.Gen. Hassan Firouz Abadi.

In the report, according to Asharq al-Awsat, Suleimani warned Abadi that Al Quds and Revolutionary Guards' operations had become transparent to US and British intelligence following the arrest of a senior Al Quds officer and four of his deputies in Irbil.

According to the official, Iran was worried that its detained people would leak sensitive intelligence information.

Iran denounced a tightening of sanctions which the United Nations security council was expected to agree last night in protest at Tehran’s insistence on enriching uranium that could be used for nuclear weapons.

UK Sailors Captured At Gunpoint

UK sailors captured at gunpoint BBC news

Fifteen British navy personnel have been captured at gunpoint by Iranian forces, the Ministry of Defence says.
The men were seized at 1030 local time when they boarded a boat in the Gulf, off the coast of Iraq, which they suspected was smuggling cars.

The Royal Navy said the group was on a routine patrol in Iraqi waters and were understood to be unharmed.

But Iranian state television quoted the Iran foreign ministry as saying they had illegally entered Iranian waters.

The Associated Press news agency is quoting US Navy official, Commander Kevin Aandahl, as saying that Iran's Revolutionary Guard were responsible.

Mr Aandahl is also reported as saying the naval force had told them in a radio message that the British were not harmed.

Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett has demanded the immediate and safe return of the HMS Cornwall servicemen.

She added that she had called for a "full explanation" from Iran and had left them in no doubt that she wanted the group and their equipment back immediately.

The task force's commander, Commodore Nick Lambert, said he was hoping there had been a "simple mistake" over territorial waters.

"There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that they [British personnel] were in Iraqi territorial waters. Equally, the Iranians may claim they were in Iranian territorial waters.

The incident comes at a time of renewed tensions with Iran over its nuclear programme and follows claims that most of the violence against UK forces in Basra is being engineered by Iranian elements.

British army Colonel Justin Maciejewski, who is based in Iraq, said Iran was providing "sophisticated weaponry" to insurgents and "Iranian agents" were paying local men to attack British troops.

Ahmadinejad Lied About Not Getting A Visa

U.S. says Iran president's visa approved

WASHINGTON, March 23 (Reuters)

Visas for Iran's president and other diplomats to visit the United States had been approved, the White House said on Friday, disputing Iran's claim that the entry documents had not been approved.

Iran said Washington had so far failed to give a visa to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad so he could address the U.N. Security Council in New York when it meets to vote on new sanctions against Tehran, which could happen this weekend.

"The Iranian comment is false. As the State Department said earlier this week, the visas have been approved," said Gordon Johndroe, spokesman for the White House National Security Council.

State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said visas for 39 Iranian officials -- including Ahmadinejad, diplomats and security guards -- were in the hands of the Iranians as of 10 a.m. local time in Bern, Switzerland.

He said because some visa forms for the air crew were incomplete, those were still being processed.

"At the end of the day, everybody gets the visas that they need in order to travel to the United Nations," McCormack told reporters.

Teheran Smuggled In Missile That Shot Down RAF Helicopter In Iraq

Teheran Agents Smuggled In Missile That Shot Down RAF Helicopter In Iraq
By Sean Rayment, Defence Correspondent, Sunday Telegraph

A missile which brought down an RAF Lynx helicopter and killed five British Service personnel was smuggled into Iraq by Iranian agents, an official inquiry into the attack will reveal.

The Sunday Telegraph has learnt that a British Army Board of Inquiry (BOI) into the events surrounding last May's attack will state that the weapon, a shoulder-launched surface-to-air missile known as an SA14 Strella, came from Iran.

The attack, which was also responsible for the death of Flt Lt Sarah Mulvihill, the first British servicewoman to be killed on active service since the Second World War, appears to provide further evidence of Iran's direct involvement in the deaths of British troops serving in Iraq.

It is understood that the inquiry, which has assessed evidence from military engineers and scientists, will conclude that the aircraft was shot down with an Iranian SA14 missile. The inquiry, which is conducted by senior RAF and Army officers, will deliver its finding to defence chiefs next month.

The report will also reveal whether the helicopter's self-defence systems were working properly and whether they provided adequate protection from a missile fired from relatively short range.

Traditionally, the role of a military board of inquiry, which can examine everything from the loss of a piece of equipment to the deaths of servicemen, is not to attribute "blame" for a particular incident. Instead, senior officers make recommendations as to how a similar situation might be prevented.

The Foreign Office is expected to use the findings to step up diplomatic pressure on the Iranian government, which has been asked to crack down on units within its defence and security services believed to be supplying weapons and bomb-making technology to insurgents in Iraq.

Dozens of British soldiers have been killed in Iraq by improvised explosive devices in the form of roadside bombs, thought to have either been manufactured in Iran or by insurgents trained by the Iranians.

Hundreds of thousands of Strellas were produced by the Soviet Union in the 1970s and were used to equip armies throughout the Warsaw Pact, central Asia and the Middle East, including Syria and Iran. The same weapon system is also believed to have been responsible for bringing down several US helicopters in Iraq.

Although the weapon is cheap to produce and easy to assemble, operators need some skill to use it effectively, suggesting that the missile was fired either by an Iranian agent or by someone who had been trained by a skilled soldier.

The attack also claimed the life of the most senior officer to have been killed in the three-year conflict, Wg Cdr John Coxen, 46, who was about to take over command of the British helicopter fleet in southern Iraq.

The other three men killed were the pilot, Lt-Cdr Darren Chapman, 40, his co-pilot, Capt David Dobson, 27, and the door gunner, Marine Paul Collins, 21.

The Lynx Mark 7 was travelling low over central Basra on a sortie to familiarise Wg Cdr Coxen with the dangers that his pilots might face. Although it was believed at first that the helicopter had been brought down by a "lucky hit" from a rocket-propelled grenade, British troops found discarded missile parts in a nearby building after the incident.

Patrick Mercer, the shadow minister for homeland security and a former infantry commanding officer, said:

"This is another indication of a deeply dangerous escalating situation about which the Government has got to come clean. It's no good pretending that these things are not happening. When British servicemen are being killed, the Government has got to be far more robust than this."

Wild Thing's comment......

Wouldn't this be an act of war? I mean they have been doing this for awhile now, weapons, trained killers sent to Iraq, so many things and now this. But let's see that's right, that Baker freak wants us to make nice with Iran, Syria and those wanting to kill our troops. God help us.

Iran and Syria Soul Mates Against USA and Israel

Assad, Ahmadinejad vow to form alliance against U.S., IsraelHaaretz

Iranian President Mahmoud Adhmadinejad and Syrian President Bashar Assad on Saturday vowed to form an alliance against what they called U.S. and Israeli conspiracies against the Islamic world.

The Iranian president also praised the agreement by rival Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah to form a unity government.

"Dispute among Muslim factions has always been harmful for regional nations and useful for Islam's enemies," he said.

"America's policies have failed in the region ... By creating divisions among Muslim nations, Washington wants to pursue its aims," IRNA quoted Assad as saying during his meeting with Ahmadinejad, who urged "Muslim countries to preserve unity."

Ahmadinejad said that what the US really aims for under the pretext of development in the region "is just another effort to strengthen its own status and that of the Zionists (Israel)."

The Syrian leader said Muslims worldwide should be informed about "the evil aims by the U.S. and Zionists" which he said were sowing discord among Muslims.

Assad arrived earlier Saturday in Tehran for a two-day visit to discuss developments in the Middle East and was scheduled to also meet Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, former president Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani and chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani.

On the agenda would be Iraq, Lebanon and cooperation with the Palestinians. Assad was in Tehran in August 2005 immediately after the start of Ahmadinejad's presidential term.

Ahmadinejad said earlier Saturday that Lebanon and Hezbollah have his complete support in their struggle against Israel and the United States.

"Iran and Lebanon are two parts of the same body, and only through cooperation between our two nations will it be possible to foil the conspiracies of the enemy," Ahmadinejad said.

"Thanks to Hezbollah, the Lebanese people have become a symbol of courage, faith and respect for all nations, and all this through the power of resistance," Ahmadinejad added.

Coward Al_Sadr Jihad Without Me As He Runs To Iran

Al Sadr Fled Iraq, Fearing U.S. Bombs

Insurgent Leader Reportedly Moved to Iran With Members of Mahdi Army
abc news

While members of the U.S. House of Representatives take turns weighing in on President Bush's planned troop surge in Iraq, the focus in Iraq is not on the arrival of more U.S. troops, but the departure of one of the country's most powerful men, Moqtada al Sadr and members of his army.

According to senior military officials, al Sadr left Baghdad two to three weeks ago and fled to Tehran, Iran, where he has family.

Sources say some of the Mahdi army leadership went with al Sadr.

Though he is gone for now, many think al Sadr is not gone for good. In Tehran he is trying to keep the Madhi militia together.

In recent months al Sadr has come to the political table to force change rather than using military force to have an impact. Sources say an even more extreme faction within his militia isn't pleased with this turn of events, and is trying to force the cleric to respond to recent Sunni attacks with more violence.

U.S. officials say they are going to watch those member of the Mahdi army left behind in Baghdad. Sources say two scenarios are possible: Either al Sadr will be driven further into extremist mode or he will continue going forward with the political process.

Wild Thing's comment........

When the going gets tough, flee! hahahaha These terrorists are ALL chickens. thought martyrdom was a much sought after thing with the muslims, you know 72 virgins and all. Besides, won't Allah protect him since he is on the correct side and killing the infidels? Keep up the pressure guys! Flush em all out! They respect ONLY one thing, thats superior firepower and the willingness to use it.

Where's the obligatory "Reid is saddened" photo? Now Murtha, Reid and Pelosi and all the others can flee to Iran.

Austrian Sniper Rifles From Iran Found In Baghdad Home

US soldiers during a house search for insurgents, in eastern Baghdad found more than a hundred Austrian-made sniper rifles, which were sold to Iran, in a Baghdad raid on insurgents. The .50 calibre weapons, which are capable of penetrating body armour, were part of a shipment of 800 rifles exported by Austrian arms manufacturer Steyr-Mannlicher to Iran last year.

Iraqi insurgents using Austrian rifles from Iran

Austrian sniper rifles that were exported to Iran have been discovered in the hands of Iraqi terrorists. More than 100 of the.50 calibre weapons, capable of penetrating body armour, have been discovered by American troops during raids.

The guns were part of a shipment of 800 rifles that the Austrian company, Steyr-Mannlicher, exported legally to Iran last year.

The sale was condemned in Washington and London because officials were worried that the weapons would be used by insurgents against British and American troops.

Within 45 days of the first HS50 Steyr Mannlicher rifles arriving in Iran, an American officer in an armoured vehicle was shot dead by an Iraqi insurgent using the weapon.

Over the last six months American forces have found small caches of the £10,000 rifles but in the last 24 hours a raid in Baghdad brought the total to more than 100, US defence sources reported.

The find is the latest in a series of discoveries that indicate that Teheran is providing support to Iraq's Shia insurgents.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president, yesterday denied that Iran had supplied weapons to Iraqi insurgents. But on Sunday US officials in Baghdad displayed a range of weapons they claimed had originated in Iran.

They said 170 American and British soldiers had been killed by such weapons.

The Foreign Office expressed "serious concerns" over the sale of the rifles last year and Britain protested to the Austrian government.

A Foreign Office spokesman said last night: "Although we did make our worries known the sale unfortunately went ahead and now the potential that these weapons could fall into the wrong hands appears to have happened."

The rifle can pierce all body armour from up to a mile and penetrate armoured Humvee troop carriers. It is highly accurate and fires a round called an armour piercing incendiary, a bullet that the Iranians manufacture.

The National Iranian Police Organisation bought the rifles allegedly to use them against drug smugglers in an £8 million order placed with Steyr in 2005.

The company was given permission to export them by the Austrian government, which is not a Nato member.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Well this just ticks me the heck off.

We asked them not to, England asked them not to. So why can't we demand countries not do such things, yes I know, but these terrorists are the enemy of the entire world, so how stupid or greedy does a person (country) have to be to sell to Iran when the intelligence collectors inform said leaders of these countries like Austria telling them of the desire for these death cult freakazoids wanting them dead as much as us, as much as our troops??!!

Aren’t they privy to the same information we are, heck we learn a ton of things just online. Go figure how much more the leaders of countries find out about then we are able to see.

Something more about this sniper rifle:

Steyr .50HS heavy sniper rifle, with folded bipod
Caliber: .50BMG (12.7x99mm) or .460Steyr
Operation: manually operated rotating bolt action
Barrel: 833 mm (33")
Weight: 12.4 kg
Length: 1370 mm (54")
Feed Mechanism: single shot, no magazine

The Steyr .50 HS is the most recent development of the famous Austrian arms manufacturer, the Steyr Mannlicher Gmbh & Co KG. First displayed at the ShotShow-2004 (February 2004, Las-Vegas, USA), this single shot rifle is primary intended for anti-material applications and counter-sniping. The Steyr .50HS is available in two calibers, the old and venerable .50BMG and the apparently new .460Steyr (on which so far no data were obtained).

The Steyr .50 HS is a single shot rifle, with manually operated, rotating bolt with two large locking lugs at the front. The two-stage trigger is factory set to 4lbs (1.8kg). The buttstock is adjustable for length of pull, the cheekpiece is also adjustable. Heavy barrel is partially fluted and fitted with effective muzzle brake. Steyr .50 HS has no iron sights; the MilStd Picatinny rail is standard. Rifle is not intended to be fired off-hand; it is fitted with integral folding adjustable bipods.

EU Land Says Too Late To Halt Iran’s Nuclear Bomb

EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana

Too late to halt Iran’s nuclear bomb, EU is told

By Daniel Dombey and Fidelius Schmid in Brussels

Published: February 12 2007 22:18
Financial Times..complete article

Iran will be able to develop enough weapons-grade material for a nuclear bomb and there is little that can be done to prevent it, an internal European Union document has concluded.

In an admission of the international community’s failure to hold back Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the document – compiled by the staff of Javier Solana, EU foreign policy chief – says the atomic programme has been delayed only by technical limitations rather than diplomatic pressure. “Attempts to engage the Iranian administration in a negotiating process have not so far succeeded,” it states.

“At some stage we must expect that Iran will acquire the capacity to enrich uranium on the scale required for a weapons programme,” says the paper, dated February 7 and circulated to the EU’s 27 national governments ahead of a foreign ministers meeting yesterday.
“In practice . . . the Iranians have pursued their programme at their own pace, the limiting factor being technical difficulties rather than resolutions by the UN or the International Atomic Energy Agency.
“The problems with Iran will not be resolved through economic sanctions alone.”

Wild Thing's comment.......

Well, they can't say Iran wasn't warned. EU land where stopping global warming, free healthcare, and 30 hour work weeks are more important than national security, fiscal sanity, and the future. Europe is sick.

There is little that Europe can and will do to prevent the Iranians from developing the bomb. The reason these clowns bring this up is that they expect the US to step in to save their worthless asses again. There's basically an anti-survival movement that's taken over western civilization. Especially Europe. Even if they knew the date and time for sure when islamic nukes would go off, I doubt even their leaders would bother to evacuate.

Iran successfully Fires Test Land to Sea Missile

Iran successfully test fires land-to-sea missile


The firing came on the second day of war games by the Guards' air force and naval divisions amid mounting tensions with the West over Iran's nuclear programme, state television reported.

"We have successfully test fired a cruise missile called SSN4, or Raad, hitting targets 300 kilometres (180 miles) away in the Sea of Oman and northern Indian Ocean," deputy air force commander, Ali Fadavi was quoted as saying Thursday.

"This missile has the final range of 350 kilometres and can hit all kinds of big warships in all of the Persian Gulf, Sea of Oman and northern Indian Ocean.
"It can carry a 500 kilo (1,100 pounds) warhead and can fly at low altitude, evading radar jammings and immune to electronic measures."

Iranian television showed footage of the missile being fired and hitting its target.

Iran's leaders have repeatedly said the country's armed forces are ready for any eventuality in the current standoff with the West over its nuclear programme.

Although the United States has said it wants the standoff solved through diplomacy, Washington has never ruled out military action to thwart Iran's atomic drive.

They just gave our military the chance to monitor every single frequency, datum and radar pulse the missle uses to track to its target. In other words - they blinked first.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Threaten Kidnapping Americans

Iran militia threatens to kidnap Americans
Ynet news

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards threatened to kidnap American soldiers and hinted at intentions to kidnap American citizens in Europe and South America as well.

The threat was apparently in response to President George W. Bush’s instruction to American soldiers in Iraq last week to target Iranian agents.

“The kidnapping of American citizens in the Middle East, Europe and South America is not difficult and can happen at any moment,” siad an article printed in the weekly Subah Sadak, which is considered the mouthpiece of the Revolutionary Guards in Iran.

The article, entitled “Easier and cheaper than Chinese merchandise”, was printed in response to the United Nations Security Council’s Resolution 1737, setting sanctions on Iran due to its refusal to suspend its nuclear program.

The threat may also be linked to the operation in which American forces kidnapped five Iranians from the Consulate General in Erbil in northern Iraq.

“The US prepared a most-wanted list, which includes senior Iranian officials whom they intend to kidnap to learn details about national, nuclear and military operations,” the article claimed.

'Current Iranian regime has offensive strategy'

The article further claimed that America had the names of 35 Iranian diplomats working at various embassies, who the White house suspects hold senior intelligence and security positions and have information on Iran’s nuclear and military capabilities.

Ali Saidi, a spokesperson for the Revolutionary Guards, noted, “Our enemies have many weak points, and we can cause them problems.”
In an interview with an Iranian news agency, Saidi said that contrary to the policy of previous governments, who employed passive and defense foreign policy, “The current Iranian regime has an offensive strategy.”

Meanwhile, the Iranian Embassy in Moscow denied the recent report in the Daily Telegraph that Iran was secretly cooperating with North Korea in nuclear weapons testing.

The embassy issued a notice saying that “Iran denies the rumors of cooperation with North Korea regarding nuclear experimentation.” North Korea denied the report as well.

Wild Thing's comment.......

The Revolutionary Guards (Pasdaran) are no militia, but Iran's elite nutjobs. They are the SS of Iran. Their armed wing is better equipped and trained than the normal Army. These wack jobs should be on the receiving end of the latest upgrade in US weaponry.

They make these threats and there is never any consequence for them when they do that.

Iran's Leader: U.N. Won't Stop Nuke Plan

Mideast News

Iran's hardline president on Sunday defended his economic policies from domestic criticism and said U.N. Security Council sanctions would never deter the country from pursuing its nuclear program.

"The (U.N.) resolution was delivered dead. Ten more similar resolutions will not affect our economy and our policy," President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in a speech broadcast live on state-run television as he delivered a budget for the new year.
"Falsely, they want to imply that we have had costs in this regard," the president said - an apparent reference to recent news stories in the West that prices of food and other basics have risen in Iran since the U.N. sanctions were imposed in late December.

"Cry Havoc!" and let slip the dogs of war - Shakespeare

If Tehran Knew
asharq alawsat

In America, they lie for tactical reasons, stating over and over that military action against Iran is unlikely. However in Iran, out of ignorance, they reiterate that American military action against their country is impossible because the US is "unable" to do so!

We say and hope our analysis is wrong. A possible military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities is in the final stages. Unless a political miracle occurs that revives the halted dialog between Iran and the international community, Iran and its neighboring countries should not be surprised by a scenario that includes American military action.

There are a number of common illusions in the Arab and Muslim mind in general, illusions that on several occasions in the past have been tried and proven unsuccessful. It was proven that the Arabs confuse their hopes with reality, and between what the other wants and what we think they are planning for.

There is an illusion that Iran is a huge military state with decisive striking power. This would be true if Iran was to confront one of its neighbors, but the fact is that in any confrontation between America and Iran, Iran would be a tiny helpless state. It will suffer what the Arabs suffered in 1967 and what Iraq suffered when Saddam stubbornly rejected all peaceful solutions. America will be able to impose its conditions. This has nothing to do with love or hatred. Geographically and historically, Iran is closer to us than America, and the cultural and historical relations we have with Iran outweigh our ties with America. Rather it is the facts, reality that show that the balances of power tilt flagrantly in favor of the United States and the Western alliance, particularly the European one!

Another illusion is that America is "rolling in the Iraqi mud." I wish that the Arab world would not believe such a statement; Iraq is not another Vietnam, and America is able to conduct more than one war because of its huge political and technological capabilities.

Tehran needs to reconsider its political discourse. The clamor of hollow threats has not succeeded once in modern history. No one ever succeeded without using one's mind and knowing one's capabilities and acting accordingly, pursuant to the rule "God favors those who know their self worth".

Israel has a nuclear arsenal but no Israeli official dares to mention Israel's possessions of nuclear weapons; they even deny the existence of these weapons. In Tehran, they are still in the early stages of enrichment; yet we hear a language of threats, menace and stubbornness.

If only the Iranian leadership thinks of the interests of its peoples, seeks to understand today's complicated international political equations and realizes that big words do not change political facts and that seeking practical alternatives and solutions with the international community is more feasible and useful than the antiquated words that think that louder voices mean a stronger argument!

Wild Thing's comment.......

I read Victor Davis Hanson often and sometimes save what he has written. This is excellent and I am going to put some of that he wrote here. I agree with what he said so I will leave it as my comment............

The Dogs of War - Lessons of the 20th Century

"When the dogs of war slip loose, accurate prognosis is almost impossible; the surreal becomes the typical."
"I would not wish to fight the United States - either militarily, politically, or culturally. For every threat, our history teaches us that Americans offer not just a rejoinder, but the specter of a devastating answer of a magnitude almost inconceivable to those now chanting and threatening in the streets of the Middle East. Do they have any idea of what sort of dangerous people we really are? Do they understand the history of the names of those ships now off their coasts, like the USS Peleliu or Enterprise, or the pedigree of the 82nd or 101st Airborne? "
"The Saudis' princes tease us with polite lectures about our errant policies, more obliquely suggesting that our bombing may lose "friends" among the moderate states. Yet America, unlike Saudi Arabia, has not merely the veneer of modern civilization, but is its wellspring. In a real war, despite severe dislocation we can survive, as in the past, without Saudi oil. The royal family and the faux-culture of the Gulf cannot. Fifteen of their citizens helped to murder 6,000 unsuspecting Americans in a time of peace - a single wing of American fighters could end their entire regime in a few days of war. Such are the frightening and horrendous realities that lurk beneath the unspoken surface when the dogs of war are unleashed. Battle indeed is the ultimate nightmare because accustomed rhetoric recedes before the truth of abject military power; and so the more the United States is shrilly hectored, in still more stark contrast loom the silhouettes of aircraft carrier groups and B-52s."
"Reviled by those in the Middle East, caricatured on campuses at home, and second-guessed by pundits of every persuasion, our military and its leadership - by any military standard of the past - have been rather brilliant in waging a war of unprecedented logistical challenges against an elusive enemy."

Iran Not Happy With Bush 's Strategy ~ DUH!

Iran Condemns Bush's Iraq Strategy
Fars News Agency

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Mohammad Ali Hosseini here on Thursday condemned the new strategy of the US President George W. Bush for Iraq, describing it as a further effort by the US to continue occupation of that country.

According to a statement released by the Foreign Ministry's Information and Press Bureau, Hosseini further viewed Bush's new decision to increase the number of the US troops in Iraq as an improper gift given to the American people at the beginning of the new Christian year.

"Increasing the number of the US troops in Iraq can spark expansion of insecurities and tension in that country and will fail to help to the settlement of Iraq's problems,"

Stressing that the immediate withdrawal of the US troops from Iraq constitutes the only way for the US to get rid of its frequent problems, the foreign ministry spokesman said:

"Deployment of Patriot Missiles in Iraq is viewed as another effort made by the United States to create a protective security umbrella for the Zionist regime of Israel through an Islamic state and it is condemned by both Iran and the Muslims worldwide."

OH ....OK, we can't do it now because the MSM, Rats and now Iran doesn't agree with it.

Iran Says Nope to Sanctions

Iran Vows to Defy U.N. Nuclear Sanctions

The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously Saturday to impose sanctions on Iran for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment, increasing international pressure on the government to prove that it is not trying to make nuclear weapons. Iran immediately rejected the resolution.

The result of two months of tough negotiation, the resolution orders all countries to stop supplying Iran with materials and technology that could contribute to its nuclear and missile programs. It also freezes Iranian assets of 10 key companies and 12 individuals related to those programs.

If Iran refuses to comply, the council warned it would adopt further nonmilitary sanctions, but the resolution emphasized the importance of diplomacy in seeking guarantees "that Iran's nuclear program is exclusively for peaceful purposes."

The Iranian government immediately rejected the resolution, vowing in a statement from Tehran to continue enriching uranium, a technology that can be used to produce nuclear fuel for civilian purposes or for a nuclear bomb. The government said it "has not delegated its destiny to the invalid decisions of the U.N. Security Council."

The United States said it hopes the resolution will clear the way for tougher measures by individual countries, particularly Russia.

Iran Ordered to Pay $254 Million in Khobar Towers Bombing

Iran ordered to pay $254 million in Khobar Towers bombing

WASHINGTON, Dec 22 (Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge on Friday ordered the Islamic Republic of Iran to pay $254 million to the family of 17 U.S. servicemen killed in the 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers residence at a U.S. military base in Saudi Arabia.

The default judgment was entered against the Iranian government, its security ministry and the Revolutionary Guards after they failed to respond to the lawsuit, which was initiated more than four years ago.

In issuing the $254.4 million judgment in the case, U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth concluded that "the Khobar Towers attack was carried out by people recruited by Gen. Ahmed Sharifi of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards."

The decision relied heavily on an investigation of the attack by the FBI under director Louis Freeh. The FBI probe led to the grand jury indictment of 13 members of Hezbollah in June 21, 2001.

"The totality of the evidence at trial, combined with the findings and conclusions entered by this court ... firmly establishes that the Khobar Towers bombing was planned, funded and sponsored by senior leadership in the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran," Lamberth wrote.
"The sheer gravity and nature of the attack demonstrate the defendants' unlawful intent to inflict severe emotional distress upon the American servicemen as well as their close relatives," he added.

Iran To Have Nuclear Weapons By 2008

Iran Will Have Nuclear Weapons By 2008


Iran announced over the weekend it was launching a bomb-scale uranium enrichment program, despite a U.N. Security Council demand that it freeze its nuclear activities.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad defiantly told a group of students Saturday that Iran had started the installation of 3,000 uranium enrichment centrifuges at its fuel plant near Natanz, calling it "the first step toward industrial production."

Saudi Arabia and its allies in the Persian Gulf responded Sunday by announcing their intention to launch a joint nuclear development effort "for peaceful purposes."

The United States and Europe have been seeking United Nations sanctions on Iran for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment and plutonium reprocessing programs, but Russia and China have refused to go along.

"Resistance of the Iranian nation in the past year forced them to retreat tens of steps over the Iran's nuclear issue," the semi-official Fars news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

Israeli nuclear experts told NewsMax that the installation of the 3,000 centrifuge "pilot plant" at Natanz was a key turning plant in Iran's nuclear weapons development.

"The Iranians are calling this a ‘pilot plant,' one Israeli analyst noted. "But this isn't a pilot plant: 3,000 centrifuges give them the capability of producing one significant quantity of nuclear fuel per year."
A "significant quantity" (SQ) is the amount of nuclear material needed to manufacture one nuclear device, currently defined by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as 25 kilograms of uranium, and just 8 kilograms of plutonium.

DEFYING international condemnation, Iran will open a conference tomorrow questioning whether the Holocaust in which millions of Jews and other minorities were killed by the Nazis really happened.

An official at the Iranian foreign ministry claimed that delegates from 30 countries, including Britain, would attend the conference, initiated by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The president, who claims the Holocaust is a myth used to justify the occupation of Palestinian land, has called for Israel to be wiped off the map and suggested that its citizens could be resettled in Alaska.

Among the first arrivals in Tehran for the two-day forum, called Studying the Holocaust: An International View, was Frederick Töben, who describes himself as an “expert”. Töben, an Australian Holocaust denier, brought his own model of the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. He claimed that it proved there would have been no room for the Jews at least 1.1m whose deaths there were documented in Nazi records.

Asked why western countries were so outraged, he replied:

“The Holocaust equals a lie. Therefore Israel is built on a lie.”

The agenda is chilling. The Iranians have presented the forum in the banal manner of international conferences where experts examine evidence in open debate.

The seminars could have been designed to cause maximum pain to Holocaust survivors and their descendants. Gas Chambers: Denial or Confirmation, is the title of one. Others are entitled Freedom of Speech and the Stance of Holocaust Deniers in the West, and The Current Laws Against Holocaust Deniers.

With no trace of irony, Iranian officials said the conference sponsored by the Institute for Political and International Studies, a foreign ministry think tank would include archives, photographs and demographic evidence to establish whether the number of victims was exaggerated.

“Our aim is scientifically to study the Holocaust and listen to both sides before reaching a conclusion,” said Manouchehr Mohammadi, the foreign ministry spokesman for research. “We weren’t involved in this event so we can be a neutral judge. If we conclude that the Holocaust happened, we will admit it, but we are still going to ask why the Palestinians have to pay the price.”

Iranian sources said the conference emerged from a behind-the-scenes struggle. Foreign ministry officials are well aware that it will have a negative impact on the country’s image at a time when Iran is already under pressure at the United Nations over its nuclear programme, support for Hezbollah in Lebanon and Shi’ite groups in Iraq.

Hence, although Ahmadinejad has been publicly flagging the conference for almost a year, foreign ministry officials who were supposed to organise it have been dragging their feet. Forced to go ahead by the president, the foreign ministry tried to portray the conference as an exercise in free speech. It was at pains to point out that Iran has a community of 25,000 Jews. who are protected by the government.

One foreign ministry official said:

“Does this conference make sense politically for Iran? No. The conference is being held to answer the questions of the president.” Tony Blair, who was invited, called it “shocking, ridiculous and stupid”.

A cruise missile aimed at the conference would do a world of good. Afterwards we can tell their families that it never happened and they're conspiracy kooks for thinking so. Is Jimmy Carter scheduled to be a guest speaker?

Another Do As I Say Or You Will Be Dead from little man on footstool

Follow God or vanish, Ahmadinejad tells West

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has warned Western leaders to follow the path of God or "vanish from the face of the earth".

"These oppressive countries are angry with us ... a nation that on the other side of the globe has risen up and proved the shallowness of their power," Ahmadinejad said in a speech in the northern town of Ramsar, the semi-official news agency Mehr reported Wednesday.
"They are angry with our nation. But we tell them 'so be it and die from this anger'. Rest assured that if you do not respond to the divine call, you will die soon and vanish from the face of the earth," he said.

The outspoken president also maintained Iran's defiance over its controversial nuclear programme, saying it was on course to fully master nuclear technology.

"Thank to God's help, we have gone all the way and are only one step away from the zenith.
"We hope to have the big nuclear celebration by the end of the year (March 2007)," Ahmadinejad said, echoing comments he has made on numerous occasions in recent months.

Wild Thing's comment......

So he says we either convert to Islam or he will kill us. I expect that prayer rugs and Korans will be soon handed out by the appeasers of the Baker (the POS that he is!) Commission and the Democrats in Congress. Or maybe our weak leaders will rush Jimmy Carter and James Baker over there for a sit down with this creep in Iran.

Clueless Americans, that have consciously chosen to ignore the fact that our enemies want us dead, better wake up like yesterday. Pelosi and the Liberals have their heads up their rears. When we get attacked again, it will be their fault along with Jimmah Carter, Howard Baker, and all RINOs.

And here is a newsflash for you Monkeyboy!! Your god is a moon god, no more powerful then your daily horoscope you freakazoid!

Some Iranian Visa Holders Sent Home

Some Iranian Visa Holders Sent Home

The Orange County Register

Some Iranian citizens traveling to Santa Clara this weekend for a reunion of graduates and professors from a Tehran university have been stopped at U.S. airports and told the visas they were carrying had been revoked.

The State Department on Thursday refused to say why some Iranians coming to the conference with visas approved by U.S. consulates abroad are being denied entry, detained overnight and then sent back to Iran. Event organizers said they know of 20 who have so far been turned away. More than 100 additional Iranian nationals are due at the weekend event.

"We knew that it was going to be difficult to get U.S. visas for the Iranians," said Fredun Hojabri of San Diego, founder of the Sharif University of Technology Association, a worldwide group of former students and professors associated with the 40-year-old school. But Hojabri said over the course of four months he had helped about 150 prospective participants at this weekend's combination reunion and conference work through the process to get visas.

Among those whose visas were revoked was Ali Edrissi, a doctoral student at Sharif University. Bahman Pouranpir, Edrissi's uncle and an industrial engineer from Irvine, waited for about six hours at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday for Edrissi and his bride, Sara Nadimi.

"I don't expect this to happen," Edrissi added. "If the visa was given then they shouldn't take it back."

Most of the Iranians who wanted to come here were given visas while some were denied, Hojabri said. But beginning early this week, he began to get messages from participants that they, and in some cases their families, were being sent back to Iran.

An unknown number were stopped at LAX. Hojabri said he also believes some were blocked from entering in Chicago and Toronto.

"We're not political," said Hojabri, who has lived in the United States since 1981 and is a former UC San Diego professor. "We are an association mostly to help each other scientifically and professionally."

Iran is one of five countries listed as states that sponsor terrorism and as such, visa applications from there are scrutinized more closely than from other countries. The U.S. does not have an embassy or consulate there, which is why the Iranians seeking to come here had to get their visas from Dubai and other consulates.

Will Ahmadinejad's Term Be Cut Short?

Iran: Parliament shortens Ahmadinejad's term

Published: 12.03.06, 20:44

The Iranian parliament voted on Sunday to unite the presidential elections with the upcoming parliamentary ones, this according to the official Iranian news agency.

The proposal, which passed with a surprising 80 percent majority, may cut the term of sitting President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad by 18 months.

The bill must still be ratified by the Iranian constitutional committee, which is headed by former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, Ahmadinejad's arch-rival, a fact which many see as indicative that the bill will indeed be authorized.

Hashemi Rafsanjani

Rafsanjani himself is considered one of the most powerful politicians in Iran and is currently running for a position in the Assembly of Experts, an 86-strong body of ayatollahs who monitor the Iranian Supreme Leader (a position currently held by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei). The Assembly has the power to dismiss the Supreme Leader. Already existing tensions have heightened between Ahmadinejad and Rafsanjani as the latter is pitted directly against Ahmadinejad's spiritual mentor Masbah Yazdi who is also vying for a spot on the Assembly of Experts.

One of the reasons cited in the proposal for bringing the two elections together is cutting the costs brought on by a double election. Opponents to the bill claimed that cutting the president's term is unconstitutional and that parliament's term should be extended to meet the original date for the presidential election.

Wild Thing's comments......

What the heck???? Assembly of Experts hahaha

Has Stinky been a bad boy? Who knows? Maybe Howard Dean will defeat Mahmoud in a landslide 18 months from now.

Terrorist Ahmadinejad Practicing His Penmanship

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has submitted an open letter to the American people. We have all heard about it, and in case anyone has not read it this is the letter from the dangerous nut job.

President Ahmadinejad's letter

The 5-page letter, released by Iran's representative at the United Nations today, President Ahmadinejad writes, "The global position of the United States is in all probability weakened, because the administration has continued to resort to force, to conceal the truth, and to mislead the American people about its policies and practices."

Gosh that sounds like the Democrat's talking points doesn't it. hahaha Oh I am so afraid. NOT. He has a lot of nerve to lecture the citizens of the United States of America.

Terrorists Ahmadinejad can kiss my ass!

Hezbollah Said to Help Shiite Army in Iraq

Gen. Michael V. Hayden, left, director of the C.I.A., and Gen. Michael D. Maples, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, testifying earlier this month before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Hezbollah Said to Help Shiite Army in Iraq

A senior American intelligence official said Monday that the Iranian-backed group Hezbollah had been training members of the Mahdi Army, the Iraqi Shiite militia led by Moktada al-Sadr.

The official said that 1,000 to 2,000 fighters from the Mahdi Army and other Shiite militias had been trained by Hezbollah in Lebanon. A small number of Hezbollah operatives have also visited Iraq to help with training, the official said.

Iran has facilitated the link between Hezbollah and the Shiite militias in Iraq, the official said. Syrian officials have also cooperated, though there is debate about whether it has the blessing of the senior leaders in Syria.

The intelligence official spoke on condition of anonymity under rules set by his agency, and discussed Iran’s role in response to questions from a reporter.

The interview occurred at a time of intense debate over whether the United States should enlist Iran’s help in stabilizing Iraq. The Iraq Study Group, directed by James A. Baker III, a former Republican secretary of state, and Lee H. Hamilton, a former Democratic lawmaker, is expected to call for direct talks with Tehran.

The claim about Hezbollah’s role in training Shiite militias could strengthen the hand of those in the Bush administration who oppose a major new diplomatic involvement with Iran.

The new American account is consistent with a claim made in Iraq this summer by a mid-level Mahdi commander, who said his militia had sent 300 fighters to Lebanon, ostensibly to fight alongside Hezbollah.

“They are the best-trained fighters in the Mahdi Army,” he said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The specific assertions about Iran’s role went beyond those made publicly by senior American officials, though Gen. Michael V. Hayden, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, did tell Congress this month that “the Iranian hand is stoking violence” in Iraq.
The American intelligence on Hezbollah was based on human sources, electronic means and interviews with detainees captured in Iraq.

American officials say the Iranians have also provided direct support to Shiite militias in Iraq, including explosives and trigger devices for roadside bombs, and training for several thousand fighters, mostly in Iran. The training is carried out by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and the Ministry of Intelligence and Security, they say.

In Congressional testimony this month, General Hayden said he was initially skeptical of reports of Iran’s role but changed his mind after reviewing intelligence reports.

“I’ll admit personally,” he said at one point in the hearing, “that I have come late to this conclusion, but I have all the zeal of a convert as to the ill effect that the Iranians are having on the situation in Iraq.”

Lt. Gen. Michael D. Maples, the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, offered a similar assessment in his testimony.

Neither General Hayden nor General Maples described Hezbollah’s role during the hearing.

In the interview on Monday, the senior intelligence official was asked for further details about the purported Iranian role.

“They have been a link to Lebanese Hezbollah and have helped facilitate Hezbollah training inside of Iraq, but more importantly Jaish al-Mahdi members going to Lebanon,” the official said, describing Iran’s role and using the Arabic name for the Mahdi Army.

The official said the Hezbollah training had been conducted with the knowledge of Mr. Sadr, the most influential Shiite cleric.

While Iran wants a stable Iraq, the official said, it sees an advantage in “managed instability in the near term” to bog down the American military and defeat the Bush administration’s objectives in the region.

“There seems to have been a strategic decision taken sometime over late winter or early spring by Damascus, Tehran, along with their partners in Lebanese Hezbollah, to provide more support to Sadr to increase pressure on the U.S.,” the American intelligence official said.

Some Middle East experts were skeptical about the assessment of Hezbollah’s training role.

“That sound to me a little bit strained,” said Flynt Leverett, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation and a Middle East expert formerly on the National Security Council staff. “I have a hard time thinking it is a really significant piece of what we are seeing play out on the ground with the various Shiite militia forces.”

But other specialists found the assessment plausible. “I think it is plausible because Hezbollah is the best in the business, and it enhances their position with Iran, Syria and Iraq,” said Judith Kipper, of the Council on Foreign Relations.

The Mahdi Army and other militia fighters traveled to Lebanon in groups of 15 and 20 and some were present during the fighting between Hezbollah and Israel this summer, though there was no indication they had taken part in the fighting, the American intelligence official said.

Asked what the militia members had learned, the official replied:

“Weapons, bomb-making, intelligence, assassinations, the gambit of skill sets.”

There is intelligence that indicates that Iran shipped machine tools to Lebanon that could be used to make “shaped charges,” sophisticated explosive devices designed to penetrate armor, American officials have said. But it is not known how the equipment was in fact used.

The officials said that because the Iraqi militia members went through Syrian territory, at least some Syrian officials were complicit. There are also reports of meetings between Imad Mugniyah, a senior Hezbollah member; Ghassem Soleimani of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards; and Syrian representatives to discuss ways of stepping up the pressure on the United States in Iraq.

The mid-level Mahdi commander interviewed this summer said the group sent to Lebanon was called the Ali al-Hadi Brigade, named for one of two imams buried at the Askariya Mosque in Samarra. The bombing of that shrine in February unleashed the fury of Shiite militias and accelerated sectarian violence.

According to the Mahdi commander, the brigade was organized and dispatched by a senior Mahdi officer known as Abu Mujtaba. It went by bus to Syria in July, and was then led across the border into Lebanon, he said. He said the fighters were from Diwaniya and Basra, as well as from the Shiite neighborhoods of Shoala and Sadr City in Baghdad.

“They travel as normal people from Iraq to Syria,” one of the militiamen said. “Once they get to Syria, fighters in Syria take them in.”

Among American officials, concern over the purported Iranian, Syrian or Hezbollah role grew recently when an advanced antitank weapon, an RPG-29, was used against an American M-1 tank in Iraq.

“The first time we saw it was not in Iraq,” Gen. John P. Abizaid, the head of the United States Central Command, told reporters in September. “We saw it in Lebanon. So to me, No. 1, it indicates an Iranian connection.”

American intelligence officials said the source of the weapon was still unclear.

General Abizaid also said it was hard to pin down some details of relationships between armed factions in the Middle East, adding:

“There are clearly links between Hezbollah training people in Iran to operate in Lebanon and also training people in Iran that are Shia splinter groups that could operate against us in Iraq These linkages exist, but it is very, very hard to pin down with precision.”

Wild Thing's comment.......

I really DIDN"T need another reason to whack Sadr, but maybe the US government does.

Our leaders have either not read Carl von Clausewitz or they have forgotten what he wrote in his treatise ON WAR.

Book 1

3. Utmost use of force.

Now, philanthropists may easily imagine there is a skillful method of disarming and overcoming an enemy without causing great bloodshed, and that this is the proper tendency of the art of War. However plausible this may appear, still it is an error which must be extirpated; for in such dangerous things as war, the errors which proceed from a spirit of benevolence are just the worst. As the use of physical power to the utmost extent by no means excludes the co-operation of the intelligence, it follows that he who uses force unsparingly, without reference to the quantity of bloodshed, must obtain a superiority if his adversary does not act likewise. By such means the former dictates the law to the latter, and both proceed to extremities, to which the only limitations are those imposed by the amount of counteracting force on each side.
This is the way in which the matter must be viewed; and it is to no purpose, and even acting against one's own interest, to turn away from the consideration of the real nature of the affair, because the coarseness of its elements excites repugnance.

We can't afford to blink...neither in the Middle East or in North Korea. If nuclear weapons are unacceptable in Iran and NK and our government makes a statement to that effect then I expect our elected officials to be on the same page as we the people regarding the term "unacceptable". I am not convinced that is the fact.

The short version?

We need to cut to the chase. No don't go in and kill the bad guys and leave.

Exterminate every last damned one of them and leave a blackened poisoned landscape then tell the rest of those flea bitten camel jocks that if you so much as Whimper something in protest, we'll do precisely the same thing to you. I'm just fed up seeing us trying to fight against these people with one hand tied behind our backs because our "Leaders" (and I use that term loosely), are too freakin worried about offending the sensibilities of those maggots in the world who want to kill us.

No Nation will survive that does not deal with it's enemies quickly and decisively.

I have never been in the military, so my comments on this are just from a girl that comes from a heavy military background, that loves America and respects our military.

Iran Vows To Help Iraq With Security

Iraqi President Jalal Talabani gestures as he speaks with his Iranian counterpart Mahmud Ahmadinejad in Tehran

Washington Times

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran would do whatever it could to help provide security to Iraq amid warnings the country was on the brink of civil war.

Mr. Ahmadinejad made the pledge at the start of a visit to Iran by Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, whose trip was delayed for two days because of a curfew imposed after bombings Thursday that killed 202 persons in a Shi'ite Muslim stronghold. The curfew was lifted yesterday.

The United States is facing calls to engage Tehran in direct talks to help end the bloodshed, which U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said had pushed Iraq closer to civil war.

"The Iranian nation and government will definitely stand beside their brother, Iraq, and any help the government and nation of Iran can give to strengthen security in Iraq will be given," Mr. Ahmadinejad said, Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) reported.

"We have no limitation for cooperation in any field," he said.

Mr. Ahmadinejad was speaking shortly after Mr. Talabani's arrival and just before the two presidents held formal talks. Mr. Talabani said he would discuss improving ties between the neighbors, which fought an eight-year war in the 1980s.

"In this trip, we will also talk about Iraq's security file because Iraq needs the comprehensive assistance of Iran to fight terrorism and create stability," ISNA quoted Mr. Talabani as saying.

Political analysts said Iran might try to use talks with Mr. Talabani to show off its influence to the United States and bolster its position ahead of any talks with its old enemy. They also said Iran's ability to stem the bloodshed was limited.

U.S. officials have said the violence is being spurred by Iran's backing for Shi'ite groups and its weapons exports. Iran dismisses the charges.

Mr. Annan, making a rare comment on the Iraq situation, said he thought the country was nearly in civil war -- something Iraqi and U.S. politicians have refused to say despite mounting deaths.

"Given the developments on the ground, unless something is done drastically and urgently to arrest the deteriorating situation, we could be there. In fact, we are almost there," Mr. Annan told reporters in response to a civil war question.
Earlier, King Abdullah II of Jordan, who will host a summit in Amman between Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and President Bush this week, said "something dramatic" must come out of it because Iraq was "beginning to spiral out of control."
The New York Times said a draft report to be debated by the Iraq Study Group, co-chaired by former Secretary of State James A. Baker III, would urge an aggressive regional diplomatic initiative to include direct talks with Iran and Syria.

The group's recommendations will be sent to the White House, which is considering a change in strategy in Iraq to allow the U.S. to start pulling out some of its 140,000 troops.

Britain, the United States' main ally in Iraq, said yesterday it hoped to withdraw thousands of troops by December 2007, while Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi said the last Italian troops would leave next month.

But Poland appeared to push back the deadline for withdrawal of its 900 troops from Iraq, saying the force would leave by the end of 2007, not by mid-2007 as previously stated.

Al-Sadr Loyalists Take Over Iraqi Television Station

Bush in Jordan next week. (AP Photo)

Al-Sadr loyalists take over Iraqi television station
Mercury News

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Followers of the militant Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr took over state-run television Saturday to denounce the Iraqi government, label Sunnis "terrorists" and issue what appeared to many viewers as a call to arms.

The two-hour broadcast from a community gathering in the heart of the Shiite militia stronghold of Sadr City included three members of al-Sadr's parliamentary bloc, who took questions from outraged residents demanding revenge for a series of car bombings that killed some 200 people Thursday.

With Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki relegated to the sidelines, brazen Sunni-Shiite attacks continue unchecked despite a 24-hour curfew over Baghdad. Al-Sadr's Mahdi Army militia now controls wide swaths of the capital, his politicians are the backbone of the Cabinet, and his followers deeply entrenched in the Iraqi security forces. Sectarian violence has spun so rapidly out of control since the Sadr City blasts, however, that it's not clear whether even al-Sadr has the authority - or the will - to stop the cycle of bloodshed.

"This is live and, God willing, everyone will hear me: We are not interested in sidewalks, water services or anything else. We want safety," an unidentified Sadr City resident said as the televised crowd cheered. "We want the officials. They say there is no sectarian war. No, it is sectarian war, and that's the truth."

Militia leaders told supporters Saturday to prepare for a fresh wave of incursions into Sunni neighborhoods that would begin as soon as the curfew ends Monday, according to Sadr City residents. Several members of the Mahdi Army boasted they were distributing police uniforms throughout Shiite neighborhoods to allow greater freedom of movement. The government announced it would partially lift the curfew Sunday to allow for pedestrian traffic.

In the Diyala province north of Baghdad, Sunni insurgents stormed into two Shiite homes, lined up 21 men and shot them to death in front of women and children, police there said. Later in the day, a Shiite television station showed footage of the victims' burials.

And in the western province of Anbar, a suicide bombing at a checkpoint in Fallujah killed a U.S. serviceman and three Iraqi civilians, according to a U.S. military statement. Another American and nine Iraqis were injured.

Also Saturday, Iraq's most prominent Sunni cleric made an appeal in Cairo, Egypt, for Arab nations to withdraw recognition of Iraq's Shiite-led government and said U.S.-led troops were complicit in Iraq's sectarian crisis. Hareth al-Dhari, leader of the militant Association of Muslim Scholars, declared Iraqi efforts toward a unity government "dead" and said the current violence is political rather than theological.

"The occupying forces have been giving cover to the militias and criminal gangs," al-Dhari said. "The government has been seen setting the atmosphere for them with the curfews to aid them in catching the victims and carrying out their attacks."

Al-Maliki's administration acknowledged it was powerless to interrupt the pro-Sadr program on the official Iraqiya channel, during which Sadr City residents shouted, "There is no government! There is no state!" Several speakers described neighborhoods and well-known Sunni politicians as "terrorists" and threatened them with reprisal.

"We'll obviously try to control them as much as we can, but when they (kill) more than 150 people in bombings, they have the right to speak," said Bassam al Husseini, one of Maliki's top advisers. "What are we going to do? We can't stop this. It's too hot right now."

Sunni politicians vowed to file complaints against the channel for inciting sectarian violence. Ordinary Sunnis were shocked to hear their neighborhoods singled out for attack on the government's station.

"I got four phone calls from friends telling me to change the channel to Iraqiya and see what's happening," said Mohamed Othman, 27, a Sunni resident of Ameriya, one of the districts mentioned in the program. "I think this is an official declaration of civil war against Sunnis. They're going to push us to join al-Qaida to protect ourselves."

Al-Husseini, the government adviser, also affirmed that a meeting between al-Maliki and President Bush would continue as scheduled next week in neighboring Jordan, despite the threats of al-Sadr's allies to withdraw from the government if it occurs. The Cabinet met for more than an hour to hash out an agenda for the trip, he said.

"The meeting will take place. That's the plan," al-Husseini said. "We need to straighten things up."

Al-Husseini said the top two items of discussion would be a report from the Iraq Study Group, a bipartisan commission that will make recommendations for U.S. policy in Iraq, and a timetable for a withdrawal of U.S.-led forces.

"We want to talk about it," al-Husseini said, "to ask, `How long are they going to stick around?"

Wild Thing's comment....

7 - 730am: "Good Morning to Death to America", hosted by Mookie and Dirka Dirka Mohammed Jihad.

But wait, there's more! In addition to the suicide explosives belt, the luxurious leather bound Koran personally signed in blood by al-Sadr, the two twin goats for your personal use, the lovely "I Hate Jews" coaster set, and the "Muqtada Rules" Turban, if you call in the next 12 minutes, you'll receive, absolutely free, al-Sadr's new DVD, "Pleasuring 72 Virgins".

I am not making light of how scary it is there. But I know with all that is in me, that if our military was given the OK, they would blow this al-Sadr to the hell hole that awaits him in 10 seconds. Maybe when Bush is there they can discuss sending Muqtada al-Sadr to his death. I would vote for that. I mean Al-Sadr IS a WMD.

Russian Rocket Deliveries To Iran Started

Russian rocket deliveries to Iran started


Russia has begun deliveries of the Tor-M1 air defence rocket system to Iran, Russian news agencies quoted military industry sources as saying, in the latest sign of a Russian-US rift over Iran.

"Deliveries of the Tor-M1 have begun. The first systems have already been delivered to Tehran," ITAR-TASS quoted an unnamed, high-ranking source as saying Friday.

The United States has pressed Russia to halt military sales to Iran, which Washington accuses of harbouring secret plans to build a nuclear weapon.

Moscow has consistently defended its weapons trade with Iran. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said the contract for 29 rocket systems, signed in December last year, was legitimate because the Tor-M1 has a purely defensive role.

ITAR-TASS reported that the rockets were to be deployed around Iran's nuclear sites, including the still incomplete, Russian-built atomic power station at Bushehr.

In August, Washington announced sanctions against several companies, including Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport, for supplying technology to Iran that could allegedly be used to develop missile technology and weapons of mass destruction.

Under the sanctions no US company can deal with foreign companies on the sanctions list for two years.

A spokesman for Rosoboronexport contacted by AFP would not confirm or deny the reports about the Tor-M1 delivery, which were also issued by the Interfax news agency.

The Tor-M1 is a low to medium-altitude missile fired from a tracked vehicle against airplanes, helicopters and other airborne targets.

The news came as the UN Security Council continued to consider possible sanctions against Iran's nuclear and ballistic missile activity in response to the Islamic republic's suspect nuclear programme.

The major powers have been debating a draft resolution drawn up by Britain, France and Germany that would impose limited sanctions on Iran's nuclear and ballistic missile sectors for Tehran's failure to comply with an earlier UN resolution on halting enrichment.

China and Russia, both close economic partners with Iran, argue the measures are too extensive, while Washington has pressed for tougher action.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Putin is playing with fire, the Muslims who destroyed a theater and murdered children care not one whit who supplies them with arms, they will attack the Russians just as quickly as they attack their fellow muslims.
Putin is a dangerous little man, killing one of his KGB agents in London, turning on Poland and continuing to arm the most dangerous people on the planet. What's next for Pootie, murdering anyone who seems a danger to his agenda of hate America, freedom and fair elections. Russia is falling down a rathole with this punk as their great leader. Wake up, and smell the corruption coming from Moscow, we are the enemy to Putin and it is time we stop enabling this little monster.

Ahmadinejad: Iran Willing to Talk If U.S. Changes

Ahmadinejad Opens Door to Talks If U.S. 'Corrects Behavior'

Fox News

TEHRAN, Iran — President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad boasted Tuesday that Iran will soon have mastered the production of nuclear fuel, but he added the country was far from producing enough fuel to power its Russian-built reactor.

Addressing a press conference, Ahmadinejad claimed that the world had finally accepted that Iran has the complete cycle of fuel production — from mining uranium to enriching it to the level required for consumption in a nuclear power plant.

"Initially, they were very angry," Ahmadinejad said, referring to the United States and EU powers that have protested Iran's enrichment of uranium. "The reason was clear: They basically wanted to monopolize nuclear power in order to rule the world and impose their will on nations.

The U.S. and its European allies are currently negotiating with Russia and China over a draft U.N. Security Council resolution that would penalize Iran for its refusal to respect an Aug. 31 deadline for a cessation of enrichment. Russia and China — which have extensive trade with Iran — are rejecting the harsh sanctions that the Western allies want to impose.

Ahmadinejad said Iran would talk to the United States if it behaves correctly, but he did not spell out what he expects Washington to do.

"We will talk to the U.S. government under certain conditions. Should it correct its behavior, we will talk to them," he said when asked whether his government would talk to Washington "about various issues."

The comment was the highest-level statement by Iran in recent months that it is willing to talk to the country which it has long demonized as "the Great Satan." Iran has twice proposed talks with the United States— in March and on Nov. 5.

Iran Warns US By Testing Firing Missiles

Iran's Revolutionary Guards test missiles, including the long-range Shahab-3, in the central desert region


Iran flexed its military muscle yesterday by test-firing missiles capable of hitting Israel and local US bases in manoeuvres the hard-line regime codenamed "Great Prophet".

In what was taken as a clear warning to America, the commander-in-chief of the elite Revolutionary Guards said the tests were intended to display his country's military strength.

"We want to show our deterrent and defensive power to trans-regional enemies, and we hope they will understand the message of the manoeuvres," Gen Yahya Rahim Safavi said.

Last night Condoleezza Rice, the US secretary of state, criticised Iran for trying to act "tough" and said it would "suffer greatly" if a weapon was used in anger.

Iranian state television reported the missiles, including the long-range Shahab-3, were fired from mobile launching pads in the country's central desert region at the opening of 10 days of military operations. The test is the first use of the nuclear-capable version of the Shahab-3, which The Daily Telegraph reported in April was being developed by Iran.

The exercise came just 48 hours after an US Navy-led flotilla in the Gulf exercised close to Iranian territorial waters, practising drills for intercepting ships carrying missiles components and weapons of mass destruction.

Shahab-3 missiles are believed to be capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and to have a range of more than 1,200 miles, within range of Israel and US military bases in the Middle East. The Shahab-3 is a modified version of the North Korean Nodong missile, based on the Soviet-made Scud.

Among other weapons tested was the Shahab-2, which has a cluster warhead that can send 1,400 bomblets, solid-fuel Zalzal missiles and guided missiles such as Scud-B, Zolfaghar-73 and Z-3, Iranian television said.

As the six missiles were fired from near the holy city of Qom, Gen Safavi and other guardsman were heard shouting: "God is the Greatest".

Gen Safavi said the military exercises would comprise drills by ground, air and naval forces, including submarines, mainly in the Gulf and Sea of Oman.

Meanwhile, the Iranian-aligned Hizbollah group in Lebanon yesterday rejected White House claims that it and Syria were seeking to topple Beirut's pro-Western government of prime minister Fuad Siniora as "a blatant interference. . . concerning the Lebanese people's choices over their government and policies".

Iran has shown their cards to the world. I think we have a new version of the card game WAR about to happen.

Iranian Cleric Campaigns for Democrats


US Republicans in Crisis

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)-

Tehran's interim Friday Prayers Leader Seyed Ahmad Khatami stressed that the savage and devilish performance of the US President George W Bush has placed Republicans in a very critical condition.

Addressing a large fervent congregation of the worshippers on Tehran University Campus today, Khatami noted the upcoming US Congress elections and the decisive role that the election results will play on the next presidential elections in that country, and said:

"The savage and devilish acts and performances of Bush, as a Republican, have placed his party in a very critical condition."

He pointed to the heavy casualties sustained by the US army in Iraq as a further factor deteriorating the Republicans' stand on the political scene of the United States, and continued:

"To shrink the crisis, the US administration will certainly try to project its problems on others in the coming days, but they must know that allegations about the intervention of Iran and Syria in Iraq's domestic affairs may not solve their problems."

The cleric stressed that the only move helping the US administration to escape its present crisis is unconditional withdrawal from Iraq.

Elsewhere, he noted the United States' conspiracy for encountering the people in such Islamic states as Lebanon, Iraq and Palestine, and added:

"They seek to confuse the world of Islam so that the main enemy, i.e. the Zionist regime, is no longer the focus of concern. And we can unfortunately observe that in some states they have gained some success in this regard as some Lebanese statesmen are apparently unaware of the depth of the US plot."

Elaborating on what he termed to be the United States' Hypocrisy, Khatami mentioned:

"On one hand they pretend to support the Iraqi government and on the other hand they seek to undermine the position and performance of that government. They chant many slogans about their fight against terrorism, but they, meantime, meet terrorists and order them to kill as many Iranians and Shiites as they can in Iraq."

He also referred to the US plot in Afghanistan, and stressed that Washington is seeking to make a deal with the extremist groups in that country, warning that the US is prepared to victimize everyone in case its interests so require.

This week's interim Friday Prayers Leader of Tehran also stated that the US Secretary of State has come to visit the region in a bid to fill all the regional states with the feeling of intimidation about Iran.

He reminded that the Islamic Republic of Iran has never aggressed against any other country in the last 27 years despite its military power, and addressing the neighboring states, said:

"You must know that Iran is like your powerful brother who will certainly help you whenever you are in crisis."

He also warned Iran's neighboring states that the US is just seeking to loot their wealth and oil.

In another part, of his second sermon, Khatami pointed to Iran's nuclear issue and reminded that Tehran is not seeking anything beyond its rights, and further dismissed the UN Security Council resolutions on Iran, saying that the freedom-seeking nations of the world will not at all heed such resolutions.

He also reminded that the western countries have stopped negotiations and referred Iran's case to the UNSC while both Iran's top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani and EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana have described their four rounds of talks as constructive.

"Western countries should know that Iran favors negotiations," the cleric pointed out, adding that imposition of sanctions on Iran has never yielded any benefits for the western states in the last 27 years.

He advised the West to give up their present approach and policy of threat, warning that they will have to sustain more losses than Iran in case they embark on imposing sanctions on Tehran.

Wild Thing's comment......
OH really, hard to tell if this is a Democrat speaking or this Iranian cleric! Not much difference, maybe Harry Reid wrote his script for him. Or Michael Moore, gosh there are so many we could pick from that are Democrats that easily could have been this cleric's writter. hahaha

Go ahead Seyed Ahmad Khatami and sound off all you want, we are used to this kind of bull. But we must let you know we have heard a lot better and some with much more passion in their delivery. You might want to throw in a little of the Howard Dean tactics of yelling and a few praise Allah's to top it off. And oh yes, don't forget using the word fight, fight, fight, that is a favorite of the Dems. They always add in how they will fight for us. hahaha

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ~ Yadda Yadda Get New Writers

Iranian President Ahmadinejad:

"The West Should Pick Up the Zionist Regime ‘By the Arms and Legs’ and Remove It from the Region; U.N. Resolutions Are Illegitimate; America & England are Enemies of the Iranian Nation"

From the article:

The following are excerpts from an address delivered by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, which aired on Jaam-e Jam 1 TV on October 20, 2006. In the address, Ahmadinejad stated that the U.S. was extorting the entire world using the Holocaust as a pretext and that the West was being held hostage by "the Zionists" by means of the Holocaust, and instructed it to pick up "the Zionist regime by the arms and legs, and remove it" from the Middle East. He further claimed that the U.N. Security Council and its resolutions were illegitimate and that "the whole world knows that America and England are the enemies of the Iranian nation."

Ahmadinejad: 'I Have a Connection With God"

Iran President Ahmadinejad: 'I Have a Connection With God, Since God Said That the Infidels Will Have No Way to Harm the Believers'; 'We Have Only One Step Remaining Before We Attain the Summit of Nuclear Technology'; The West 'Will Not Dare To Attack Us'

God might have a different take on this subject and so might the USA


In an Iftar address to an audience of his supporters, including members of the Union of Islamic Engineers and supporters of the Khat-e Emam, on October 14, 2006, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated that he had a connection with God, and promised that Iran would continue to develop nuclear energy, and would not give in to the West's demand to suspend its uranium enrichment "even for one single day."

The parts of Ahmadinejad's address regarding his connection with God were reported by the independent Iranian news agency Iran News, which is active within Iran, on October 15, 2006, under the title "A Different Report by Iran News on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's New Shocking Address at the Iftar of the Engineers Union."

Like Ahmadinejad, other members of Iran's upper echelons have also recently expressed their objections to a suspension of uranium enrichment like that undertaken by the previous president, the reformist Mohammad Khatami.

At a meeting with the heads of Iran's ruling authorities, Iran's Supreme Leader 'Ali Khamenei said:

"Had we not taken the path we took two years ago, i.e. consented to suspend uranium enrichment, perhaps today we would be kicking ourselves, saying 'Why didn't we try that path?' But today we are moving ahead towards our goal, with complete confidence and with absolute control, and [today] no one can claim any longer that we were mistaken in the path we took [i.e. our current refusal to suspend enrichment] in the nuclear issue, because we did try the other path i.e. consent to suspend enrichment..."
The reformist daily Aftab-e Yazd reported that Ahmadinejad had said in his address that Iran "must stand firm in its nuclear policy; we have one more step, and if we pass that, this matter will be attained."

A few days previously, on October 11, 2006, Ahmadinejad had made similar statements on the nuclear issue, in a speech in the city of Shahriyar:

"...The enemies are completely paralyzed, and cannot in any way confront the Iranian people. If our people maintain unity and solidarity, they [i.e. the enemies] must expect a great Iranian victory, because we have only one step remaining before we attain the summit of nuclear technology."
In that speech, Ahmadinejad underlined the West's inability to act: "The enemy will never confront us. An attack on Iran is nonsense."

The following are the main points of the Iran News report of Ahmadinejad's Iftar speech:

The Second Islamic Revolution

"...I told you that the second wave of the 1979 Islamic Revolution has already begun [with my election to the presidency in 2005, and that it is bigger and more terrible than the first..."

The Connection to God and the Anticipated Muslim Victory Over the Infidels

"On the nuclear issue, I have said to my friends on many occasions, 'Don't worry. They i.e. the Westerners are only making noise.' But my friends don't believe me, and say, 'You are connected to some place!' I always say: 'Now the West is disarmed vis-à-vis Iran on the nuclear issue, and does not know how to end this matter with us.' But my friends say: 'You are uttering divine words! Then they will laugh at us!'
"Believe me, legally speaking, and in the eyes of public opinion, we have absolutely succeeded. I say this out of knowledge. Someone asked me: 'So and so said that you have a connection.' I said: 'Yes, I have.' He asked me: 'Really, you have a connection? With whom?' I answered: 'I have a connection with God,' since God said that the infidels will have no way to harm the believers. Well, but only if we are believers, because God said: You will be the victors. But the same friends say that Ahmadinejad says strange things.
"If we are really believers, God will show us victory, and this miracle. Is it necessary today for a female camel to emerge from the heart of the mountain so that my friends will accept the miracle? Wasn't the Islamic Revolution enough of a miracle? Wasn't the Imam Ayatollah Khomeini a miracle?... "

Iran's Nuclear Policy

"They Westerners did two ugly things. First, they attacked Lebanon in order to extract concessions from us i.e. Iran. Second, they took the nuclear issue to the U.N. Security Council. Of course, now they are sunk in a quagmire, and don't know what to do with us. We, for our part, did not retreat one millimeter. First, because if we retreat even a little, that is, if we agree to suspend uranium enrichment even] for a single day, they will say that the Iranians retreat under pressure. And second, if we do this, they will tell the entire world that the Iranians have finally stopped their uranium enrichment. Didn't we stop the enrichment in the previous round of talks? What did we gain by that?...
"I say that now, by the grace of God, we have gone most of the way; be confident that they will not dare to attack us."

Attitude Towards the U.S. and Bush

"... The president of America is like us. That is, he too is inspired... but [his] inspiration is of the satanic kind. Satan gives inspiration to the president of America...
"With regard to the news that U.S. aircraft carriers have been sent to the Persian Gulf, I say to you now to let your minds be at ease. If two warships come, let them come... Why did you say nothing two months ago, when 140 of their warships left? Actually, I think that the fact that they are coming means that there is no possibility that anything will happen.
"What is dangerous is if they leave the region; then, it will be clear that they have a plan. That is exactly what I said at the Supreme National Security Council meeting some time ago. I said, be certain that the departure of those American warships from the Persian Gulf is the beginning of a bad event. Then indeed we saw that they caused the Lebanon war."

Wild Thing's comment........

Well I guess that ends all discussion, he is speaking on behalf of God now. He can't get any more delusional.

Khamenei Brandishes a Kalashnikov at US and Israel

October 15, 2006


The powerful spectacle of Iran’s be-turbaned supreme ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei clutching an automatic rifle, displayed exclusively by DEBKAfile, drew on the belligerent imagery of Yasser Arafat and Saddam Hussein. The Iranian media suppressed this particular shot in its coverage of his sermon at Tehran University Oct. 13, the third Friday of Ramadan. But the AK 47 toted by the ruler of the world’s foremost sponsor of terrorism was not missed by the political and military leaders in his audience and accentuated his war message.

DEBKAfile’s Tehran sources reveal that the Iran’s leaders took three fateful steps ahead of Khamenei’s performance:

1. They pointed up the tradition initiated by the father of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini of marking the last Friday of Ramadan as International al Qods Day - “Jerusalem Liberation Day.”

2. Khamenei’s aides leaked word that his decision to hold the sermon of Oct. 13 was prompted by his discovery that the USS Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group was heading for the Persian Gulf and would be deployed in operational mode opposite Iran’s shores by Oct. 21.

3. In Beirut, Iran’s surrogate Hizballah announced the cancellation of its annual military parade on al Qods day, i.e. Oct. 20.

Military circles in the United States and Israel interpret these steps as meaning that Iran will be standing by in battle positions the day before the Eisenhower reaches its destination. DEBKAfile military sources have been reporting since late August that Iran’s political and military leaders have resolved not to wait passively for an American attack but to go instead for a pre-emptive strike against US forces in the Persian Gulf and Iraq, as well as targeting Israel.

On October 7, DEBKAfile reported:

Tehran and Damascus are gearing up for a pre-emptive attack on Israel to ward off a US strike on Iran’s nuclear sites – whether from Lebanon, or Golan, using Hamas to launch an offensive from Gaza, or a combination thereof. The Bush administration would then have to divide its attention and military might among three warfronts simultaneously.

Khamenei devoted much of his sermon to the Lebanon war waged between Israel and Hizballah in July and August.

“The war isn’t finished,” he said. “And the losers will certainly not remain idle. These evil forces are already hard at work to remedy their defeat and Islamic nations need to remain vigilant and ready to react with determination against any other potential attack.”
The supreme ruler continued: "One of the projects of the Americans, Zionists and their allies is to come to Lebanon under the United Nations, officially to defend the Lebanese from the attacks of foreign forces and then change the cards on the table and fight our Hezbollah brothers."

By smearing as fraudulent UN Resolution 1701 which expanded UNIFIL and enforced a ceasefire in Lebanon, Khamenei made a pointed attempt to discredit the world body ahead of the Security Council sanctions session called for this week to punish Iran for continuing to enrich uranium in defiance of UN resolutions.

He was also warning “the foreign forces” (UNIFlL) that “the war was not finished.” A central them of his sermon was therefore “resistance” as “the key to victory.”
The Supreme leader said the Hezbollah (armed by Iran and Syria) had achieved "a unique historic victory” for Islam over “arrogance and colonialism” (Americans and Israelis). "The Lebanon war changed the political equations in the region.”
Settling accounts with the British and the Americans, Khamenei commented, "The British are experts in pursuing that policy (of divide and rule) and they have taught the Americans how to sow the seeds of discord among Shias and Sunnis in Iraq.
Referring to the situation in Iraq, he said, "The crisis in Iraq preceded the one in Lebanon, and its intensity has aggravated today, because Iraq, Lebanon, and other events in the region are all rings of a broken American chain."
The Iranian ruler laid great stress on "International Qods Day” as the day of “resistance” for the entire Islamic Umma against “the oppression and injustice observed by the Zionists and their supporters."

DEBKAfile’s Iran and Islamic sources note that the Kalashnikov in the supreme ruler’s hand spoke louder than his bellicose rhetoric.

Wild Thing's comment......
Well, I see that his aim is basically correct. Now if he can only reach the trigger with his toe!!
There is nothing powerful about brandishing a weapon while giving a sermon. In fact it makes the person doing that just a wimp... a wimp quivering and hiding behind the real power, the power of a firearm.

Iran Not Budging

So what is happening with Iran? Are they deciding to do what has been asked of them. Does anything that is being done about North Korea effect the thought proeceess in Iran and their defiance?

Let's take a look at some of the latest information we have:

Start here to see the flow of what is happening................

* N Korea sanctions 'should sway' Iran

Tough U.N. sanctions on North Korea should help convince Iran to suspend its suspected nuclear weapons program, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said overnight.

"I hope the lesson they learn is that if they continue to do nuclear weapons they will face the same kind of isolation and friction" that North Korea now faces, Ambassador John Bolton said on CNN's Late Edition.

* Iran says sanctions threat part of psychological war

Iran's Foreign Ministry said on Saturday Western threats to impose sanctions were part of a "psychological war" and the Islamic Republic was more determined than ever to pursue peaceful nuclear technology.

Iran's state television Web site said Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini described "the issue of imposing sanctions on Iran as a psychological war against Iran."

"The Iranian nation does not fear possible sanctions and -- more determined than in the past -- it continues its way toward the peaceful use of nuclear energy," he was quoted as saying.

* Israel calls for tough UN action on 'demented' Iran

Israel's ambassador to the United Nations urged the Security Council to take tough measures against "demented" Iran for its nuclear program in the wake of North Korea's declared atomic test.

"The international community should learn the lessons of what occurred in North Korea," Danny Gillerman told army radio. "North Korea was only the preview. Iran will be the feature film, which, if no one takes serious action, will be projected throughout the whole world."

Gillerman called for "much harder sanctions to be imposed on a demented Iranian regime that seeks to destroy a UN member state (Israel), and totally denies the Holocaust, while preparing to perpetrate a second Holocaust."

But, "I do not anticipate more significant and firmer sanctions against Iran than those being considered for North Korea."

Israeli leaders called for the North Korean test to serve as a wake up call to the international community on the risks of nuclear proliferation and prompt a zero-tolerance policy with Tehran.

* Iran to pursue atomic work despite pressure: agency
TEHRAN (Reuters)

Iran's president said Tehran would keep up its nuclear activities despite Western countries' mounting threats and pressures, the student news agency ISNA reported on Sunday.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was defiant at a meeting with a group of conservative officials on Saturday, saying Iran was determined to press on with its nuclear work.

"The threats and pressures against Iran's nuclear activities will not tarnish the will of the Iranian nation to continue its way (of achieving nuclear technology)," Ahmadinejad said.

"The nation will not be intimidated by the threats and will continue on its path vigorously," ISNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

Iran's case has been sent back to the Security Council after it failed to halt uranium enrichment, a process the West fears Iran is using to develop atomic bombs despite Tehran's denials.

Iran has shrugged off the threat of sanctions in the past. Analysts say the world's fourth largest oil exporter, which is enjoying an oil revenue windfall, may feel it can cope with the modest penalties likely to be imposed initially.

Ahmadinejad said the request by Western countries for Iran to suspend uranium enrichment was illegal.

"If they succeed in imposing their illegal demand on us they will increase the pressure to impose extra demands," Ahmadinejad said. "By God's grace they will not be able to stand against the Iranian nation," he said.

* Iran Offers Russia and America a Package Deal
Global research.ca

Ahmadinejad makes an offer to take control of the entire Near East. Komersant reported that the Iranian leadership has worked out its own plan to come to a peaceful accord with the West. Teheran has made offers to Russia and the United States that would not only allow the Islamic Republic to keep its nuclear program but also to take control of the entire Near East.

In making his argument for why Iran and the West would do better not to quarrel, Mr. Ahmadinejad said, "the Iranian nation is becoming more powerful, stronger, and more steadfast by the day, while you are becoming ever weaker and more isolated."

Wild Thing's comment.....

Both Almondjoy and Kim Il seem to be lunatics of the highest order that in a real world would be in strait jackets. Their form of insanity though is dangerous and concerning. And both countries will gladly martyr their civilians.

I don't have a clue how people like this can be even talked to. It doesn't seem to do any good. At least not so far anyway. They have no respect for life, behave like some mad comic book character that is out to destroy the world. There is no reality they can focus on to bring them around. The high they live on .... their ego's is impossible to penetrate.

Iran Closing Down Newspaper Over Latest Cartoon

Over the last four years, the Iranian authorities have ordered the closure of more than 100 newspapers associated with the country's reformist camp. This pressure has peaked again in recent weeks, with the issuing of a closure order against the daily Sharq, which is considered the most prominent of the reformist papers remaining in Iran. Sharq was shut down because it published this cartoon on September 7, 2006.

The cartoon shows Iran's and the West's moves on the nuclear issue. The white horse represents the West, while the braying black donkey with the halo is a satirical depiction of Iran. The halo is a reference to the remark made by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad following his speech to the U.N. General Assembly in September 2005; Ahmadinejad claimed that during his speech he had felt surrounded by a circle of divine light, symbolizing his messianic message to the world.

Annan Denies Claim That He Told Iran to Ignore Uranium Deadline

Annan Denies Claim That He Told Iran to Ignore Uranium Deadline

NEW YORK — U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Thursday was trying to settle a flap over a potentially damaging claim made earlier in the day by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Ahmadinejad said Annan had told him Iran could ignore a Security Council resolution requiring the country to cease enriching uranium by Aug. 31 or face economic sanctions. The Security Council sought the resolution in the face of rising fears over Iran's possible moves toward building nuclear weapons: Uranium enrichment is one of the key factors in that process.

But in its most recent report, the United Nations nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, found that Iran had continued enriching uranium through the deadline, bypassing Security Council Resolution 1696.

"We didn't understand and couldn't understand why a resolution was passed in the midst of an examination of a package," Ahmadinejad said. "We think [the Security Council] was probably under pressure by some powers who constantly want to place pressure on countries. The secretary-general told me to disregard what has happened for the time being, resort to diplomacy."

A spokesman for Annan said that was not the case, though, and Annan "did not tell Iran to disregard" the resolution.

If Ahmadinejad's claim holds true, it would run afoul of the U.N. charter, which makes clear that the secretary-general reports to the Security Council. And according to Annan's Web site, his duties include upholding the "values and moral authority of the United Nations."

Annan visited Ahmadinejad in Tehran on Sept. 3. FOX News reported that the visit was being planned Aug. 18, meaning that officials from both offices were in contact some 12 days before the deadline to cease uranium enrichment was set to expire.

Wild Thing's comment......
Ahmadinejad lied? Annan lied? Which liar are we supposed to believe?


Well just this, Kofi is clearly not taking a hard line stance against Iran. Just wondering here.

NBC Interview With Ahmadinejad - Check Out His Lies

This is an interview NBC Nightly News managing editor and anchor Brian Williams did with Ahmadinejad

President Bush’s policies in the Middle East are “moving the world toward war,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday, maintaining that Iran was a peaceful nation that merely wanted to be left alone to “stand on its own feet.”
“The U.S. government thinks that it’s still the period after World War II,” Ahmadinejad said in an interview with Brian Williams, anchor and managing editor of “NBC Nightly News,” a mindset that led Bush to believe that he “can rule, therefore, over the rest of the world.”
But “the world has changed,” he said. “Nations are awakened now. They want their rights — equal rights, and fair ones. The time for world empires has ended.”

Ahmadinejad, who was to address the United Nations later in the day, did not attend Bush’s address Tuesday afternoon. Bush likewise avoided seeing Ahmadinejad during his New York visit, in line with the U.S. policy not to engage with the Iranian government until Tehran abandoned its attempts to enrich uranium, which Washington believes is the first step toward Iran’s development of a nuclear weapon.

“Why is the U.S. government so against our people?” Ahmadinejad, speaking through a translator, asked in the interview with NBC News. “They speak of war so easily, as if it’s on their daily agenda. We never speak of war.”
“We are against the atomic bomb,” he said. “We believe bombs are used only to kill people. And we are against killing people.”

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Arrives in New York

Iran leader arrives for New York showdown

Iran's radical anti-American president arrives in New York today to face his western enemies in what is expected to be a fiery showdown over his country's nuclear ambitions.

In his second trip to the land Teheran calls "the Great Satan" since he was elected in 2004, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is expected to come under heavy international pressure to halt key elements of Iran's suspected nuclear weapons programme at the United Nations annual meeting.

Western powers are pressing for further security council action against the Iranian regime after its decision to ignore an Aug 31 deadline to halt uranium enrichment. advertisement

But as he met leaders of 118 "non-aligned" countries gathered in Cuba at the weekend, Mr Ahmadinejad, 50, challenged America's right to nuclear weapons.

"Why should people live under the nuclear threat of the United States?'" he asked the so-called Anti-Bush summit, attended by countries including India, Pakistan, North Korea, China and South Africa. "What is the UN security council waiting for to react to those threats?" He went on to question American and British permanent membership of the 15-nation council.

Wild Thing's comment......
Is this nuts or what!!??!! What's the betting line that Carter wants first in line for a photo op and to shake his hand.
I can't believe we are letting this hostage taking terrorist into our country and letting him bash us on our own soil. I can't believe we let the pervious President in a week or so ago. He also came to bash America to the max. It is SICK how weak our leaders are that allow this shit to happen!

The UN needs to be burned down to the ground with all of them in it.

Iranian President Applies for U.S. Visa

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has applied for a U.S. visa, according to State Department officials.

The fiery leader plans to attend the U.N. General Assembly meetings in New York later this month. Official says that the application, which was submitted last month, is going through the normal processing procedure.

Ahmadinejad is known for his controversial rhetoric. He has called the holocaust a "myth" and has stated that Israel will one day be destroyed. Jewish organizations have already begun planning protests to take place outside the U.N. Headquarters during Ahmadinejad's visit.

Because he is visiting for the U.N. meetings in late September, the application is being processed with the "U.N. Headquarters Agreement" in consideration, which allows for visits for government officials who want to visit the U.N. in New York.

The official advises that the application will be much like the one Ahmadinejad went through last year for his visa. His application will most probably be denied based on the travel restriction as an Iranian government official, but that should be waived, and he would then be allowed to come into the U.S. for the meeting, but probably with a limited 25-mile travel radius.

Wild Thing's comments............
"controversial rhetoric" that is what you call it? So Israel should be "wiped off the map" is controversial rhetoric, Claiming the Holucaust isnt real is controversial rhetoric?

Well God help us! Why don't we just let all these Islam freaks make the USA into their summer home. Sheesh!

Our government has allowed terrorists Former Iranian President Mohammed Khatami to come here. You can see my other post on this HERE. And our tax dollars are going all out protecting him. Helicopters the whole bit so he is safe while he is here. Just damn!

Bomb Iran Video ~ Turn up the Volume

US intelligence photo of the Iranian Mark 4 Air Defence Flying Carpet

Iran tests new air defense system

Jerusalem Post
Iran said on Monday it had tested a new air defense system to counter missiles and aircraft during large-scale military exercises throughout the country, state-run television reported.

"The upgraded missiles successfully destroyed the presumed enemies' missiles in low altitude simultaneously in several points," said Gen. Amir Amini, deputy commander of Iran's Air Force.

An Iranian fighter jet drops bombs during the army's air force maneuvers at an undisclosed location in Iran, Monday, September 4, 2006.

The television footage showed at least four surface-to-air missiles being fired from mobile launching pads. The report did not say if the missile was equipped with a guidance system.

During maneuvers dubbed "The Blow of Zolfaghar," which began in August 19, Iran test fired short-range surface-to-surface and sub-to-surface missiles.

Iran's military test-fired a series of missiles during large-scale war games in the Persian Gulf in March and April, including a missile it claimed was not detectable by radar that can use multiple warheads to hit several targets simultaneously,

After decades of relying on foreign weapons purchases, Iran now says it is increasingly self-sufficient in its military equipment claiming it annually exports more than US$100 million (€81 million) worth of military equipment to more than 50 countries.

Since 1992, Iran has produced its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles and a fighter plane, the government has said. It announced in early 2005 that it had begun production of torpedoes.

Iran In The News

U.N. chief, in Iran, is snubbed on nuclear program and ignored over questioning of Holocaust

TEHRAN, Iran, (AP) -- The U.N. chief got little satisfaction Sunday at the close of his trip to Tehran, snubbed by Iran's leader over international demands to stop enriching uranium and ignored in warnings not to incite hatred by questioning the Holocaust.

In a provocative move on the final day of Kofi Annan's two-day visit, Iran announced it would host a conference to examine what it called exaggerations about the Holocaust, during which more than 6 million Jews were killed by the Nazis.

The move was sure to draw new international condemnation of Iran's stance on Jews. Hours after the announcement, Annan repeated his displeasure over an exhibition in Tehran of cartoons mocking the Holocaust that was opened as a response to Western caricatures of Prophet Muhammad.

"I think the tragedy of the Holocaust is an undeniable historical fact and we should really accept that fact and teach people what happened in World War II and ensure it is never repeated," Annan told reporters.

He commented after a meeting with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but the hard-line Iranian leader didn't accompany the U.N. chief to the news conference.

Rest of article HERE

Defense Minister General Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar said Iran is currently exporting military equipment to 57 countries in the world.

Iran demands withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq

Tehran, Iran, Sep. 04 – Iran demanded on Monday that United States-led forces leave Iraq.

“The occupiers must leave Iraq”, government spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham told reporters during his weekly press conference.

“At present, there is no excuse for the occupation of Iraq to continue”, Elham said, adding, “Saddam no longer exists in this country. A government has been formed in this country and the constitution has been completed. There is no excuse for occupying Iraq”.

Amir Taheri, Asharq Alawsat reported that Ali-Akbar Meshkini, the second most powerful Ayatollah in Iran, Meshkini said

........."Among all the governments in the world, the only legitimate government endorsed by the Almighty is the Islamic Republic of Iran." There cannot be give-and-take between "an extension of God" and an "illegitimate and oppressive regimes."

Ardeshir Dolat reported that Seyed Yahya Safavi, the head of the Revolutionary Guards Corps said

....“The Islamic world will soon become a major world superpower.”

Wild Thing's comment.........

I think it is funny how President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad snubbed Annan. haha The UN is worthless, but we already knew that.

These Ragheads can not even design, manufacture and produce a decent automobile of their own, so Minister General Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar's claim that Iran "is currently exporting military equipment to 57 countries in the world" is (IMHO) pure BS

And that Gholam-Hossein Elham sounds like one of the USA's Democrats. haha

Military Option Against Iran .....Open

Ahmadinejad in his private office

Military option against Iran open: US ....Ambassador Bolton

The United States has warned Iran that military option "is not off the table" as it mulls a multi-pronged strategy to prevent Tehran from going nuclear.

"I think any president charged with responsibility for protecting the American people is not going to take the military option off the table when you confront a threat as grave as an Iran armed with nuclear weapons," US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton said.
"... He's (Bush) made it plain for some time that our preferred way of dealing with this problem is through peaceful and diplomatic means, and that's what we've been doing for the past several years," he said.
Noting that discussing the strategy in public would not be productive, Bolton said, "The Iranians have made it clear they have no intention of suspending their uranium-enrichment activity."
"I think moving for sanctions in the Security Council, considering other economic steps, ramping up the Proliferation Security Initiative, are all things we should and will be doing."

The top American envoy at the UN also reminded Russia and China that they had promised to go the sanctions route when passing the UN Security Council resolution this June.

"It's not at all clear that Russia or China would actually veto a resolution in the Security Council. They may not support it, but if they acquiesce in it by abstaining, that still leaves open the possibility that the council could act," Bolton said on MSNBC's 'Hardball' programme.
"The possibility of sanctions in the council has always been one part of the effort," he said adding, "Lots of countries can impose sanctions on Iran without action by the Security Council - the European Union, Japan, others."

Wild Thing's comment......

Hoorah for Bolton! Now wait for the inevitable outrage from Iran, the Russians, the EU and the Democrats.

Ahmadinejad: Holocaust made up to embarrass Germany

Iranian president, in a letter to German chancellor, once again questions veracity of Holocaust, suggests it was an Allied ploy to impede German progress.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has told German Chancellor Angela Merkel that the Holocaust may have been invented by the victorious Allied powers in World War II to embarrass Germany, the semi-official news agency Mehr reported.

The remarks by the outspoken Ahmadinejad, who has repeatedly questioned the veracity of the Holocaust, came in a letter sent to Merkel in July whose contents have not been disclosed until now.

"Is it not a reasonable possibility that some countries that had won the war made up this excuse to constantly embarrass the defeated people ... to bar their progress," Ahmadinejad asked in the letter.
"The question is if these countries, especially Britain, felt responsible for the Holocaust survivors, why they did not settle them in their own countries?" he continued.

It is not the first time Ahmadinejad has voiced doubt about the mass slaughter of Jews under Nazi Germany, previously describing the Holocaust as a "myth" used to justify the creation of Israel .

"By promoting the necessity of settlement of Holocaust survivors in the occupied Palestine, they have created a constant threat in the Middle East," he said, referring to Israel.

Merkel indicated that she would not formally respond to the letter, saying it contained "totally unacceptable" criticism of Israel and "constantly put in question" the Jewish state's right to exist.

Wild Thing's comment.....

Psycho Mahmoud Ahmadinejad certainly loves to write letters. He needs a blog of his own and then he can put little animated Muzzies running around on it and a sound track of Allah Akbar.

I'm sure he is not too happy about Germany selling Israel two nuclear submarines. Heheheheheheheh

Iran To Launch Major Military Maneuvers ~ Like Right After They Pray?

Iran to launch major military maneuvers
The Jerusalem Post

Iran will launch a series of large-scale military maneuvers across the country and has not made plans for an end to the ongoing war games, the army said Thursday.

"The maneuvers are aimed at introducing Iran's new defensive doctrine," military spokesman Gen. Mohammad Reza Ashtiani was quoted as saying by state-run television.
He said the exercises would begin on Saturday in the south east of the country. "It will continue in the whole of Iran, stage by stage for an unspecified period," Ashtiani said.

The announcement came as Iran faces heightened international scrutiny because of its contentious nuclear program and for supporting the Lebanese Hizbullah guerrillas.

Iran denies Israeli accusations it is arming and training Hizbullah fighters.

Ashtiani praised Hizbullah for its month-long fight against Israel. "Human forces can decide fate of a war. We saw it in Lebanon," the general said, echoing Hizbullah claims it won the war by resisting a massive bombing and ground offensive for more than a month before a UN-brokered cease-fire came into place earlier this week.

The military spokesman said Iran's maneuvers reflected the current level of tension in the Middle East. "We have to be prepared against any threat and we should be a role model for other countries," local newspapers quoted Gen. Ashtiani, as saying. "Our army is ready to defuse all plots against Islamic Republic of Iran."

The military exercise, involving 12 infantry regiments, is called "The Blow of Zolfaghar," in reference to a sword that belonged to Imam Ali, one of the most revered figures of Islam for Shi'ite Muslims. A majority of Iran's 70 million people are Shi'ite.

On Wednesday, the Interior Ministry said that Iran also plans to boost security patrols on its borders.

Wild Thing's comment.....
So who are they planning on going to war with?
And here a question I have. When they are at war such the Hezbollah and the so called army of Iran etc. They are supposed to pray 5 times a day, I mean IF they are a good Muslim / Muzzbolla and all. . So how do they work in their prayer time and shooting time.
In the film industry there are stand-ins for us. They stand their when lighting a set and for all kinds of reasons. Does the Iranian military have stand-ins for praying for them? Or maybe they are exempt as long as they are killing innocent people.

Satellite Blackout in Tehran

The government of Iran is going from building to building in Tehran, smashing satellite dishes. This can only be construed as an effort to cut Iranians off, as much as possible, from news originating in the outside world.

And from Deja vu -- Judith Apter Klinghoffer

Hundreds of police in Tehran have begun dismantling satellite antenna dishes from the city's rooftops - part of a campaign to prevent Iranians from watching Western television programmes. The move follows a recent police order that all satellite dishes - officially banned but tolerated until now - be removed. The campaign against satellite television was launched by the Minister for Culture and Islamic Orientation, Hassan Saffar Harandi, who said "we have to halt the West's cultural offensive," on Iran.

Some observers believe that the clampdown is aimed at keeping the government's control over news regarding Iran's dispute with the international community regarding its nuclear programme.

The government on Tuesday reiterated its intention to respond to a package of incentives, devised by the permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, to persuade Tehran to drop its uranium enrichment plans.

In recent months, all news coverage on the issue in Iran has had to be done with the approval of the Supreme Council of National Security, prompting people who wish to be informed by non-government sources to watch and listen to television and radio programmes broadcast from abroad.

Wild Thing's comment.....
If our government did that to us can you just imagine what would happen?! Even for people that seldom watch TV shows, news shows or care about world events. To be under that kind of government control sure shows me how afraid the Iran government is of their people finding things out. Little cowards one and all in that Iran government. But wait, are they still going to make those incessant stupid threatening videos they send to us that we see on FOX News, CNN and other networks?

Iran Weapons Found At Iraq's Port City

Weapons from Iran discovered in Iraq’s port city

An array of weapons made in Iran were discovered in Iraq’s southern port city of Um Qasr, the Iraqi television channel al-Zora reported on Monday. In the weapons cache were hundreds of Katyusha rockets and mortar shells as well as several thousand light arms, the report said, adding that the weapons had all been manufactured in neighbouring Iran.

The weapons were discovered in the city’s al-Hora district, it said.

Um Qasr, the country’s largest deepwater port city, is close to the city of Basra which Iraqi officials say has become a hub for agents of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS).

Wild Thing's comment.....
So what is the deal are we supposed to imagine that the weapons were not allowed to continue through or what. Talk about half assed reporting.

Russian Weapons To Hezbollah via Syria and Iran

Israel Finds Evidence That Syria, Iran Arm Hezbollah With Russian Weapons
Wed, 16 Aug 2006, 01:04

Abandoned Hezbollah positions in Lebanon yesterday revealed conclusive evidence that Syria — and almost certainly Iran — provided the Russian-made anti-tank missiles that have blunted the power of Israel’s once invincible armor, the Daily Telegraph reported.

After one of the fiercest confrontations of the war, Israeli forces took the small town of Ghandouriyeh, east of the southern city of Tyre, on Sunday evening, hours before a ceasefire brokered by the United Nations took effect.

At least 24 Israeli soldiers were killed in the advance on the strategic hilltop town as Hezbollah fighters were pushed back to its outskirts, abandoning many weapons.

The discovery helped to explain the slow progress made by Israeli ground forces in nearly five weeks of a war which Hezbollah last night claimed as “a historic victory.” Israeli political and military leaders are facing mounting criticism over the conduct of the offensive, which was intended to smash the Iranian-backed Shia militia.

Outside one of the town’s two mosques a van was found filled with green casings about 6ft long. The serial numbers identified them as AT-5 Spandrel anti-tank missiles. The wire-guided weapon was developed in Russia but Iran began making a copy in 2000.

Beyond no-man’s land, in the east of the village, was evidence of Syrian-supplied hardware. In a garden next to a junction used as an outpost by Hezbollah lay eight Kornet anti-tank rockets, described by Brig Mickey Edelstein, the commander of the Nahal troops who took Ghandouriyeh, as “some of the best in the world”.

Written underneath a contract number on each casing were the words: “Customer: Ministry of Defence of Syria. Supplier: KBP, Tula, Russia.”
Brig Edelstein said: “If they tell you that Syria knew nothing about this, just look. This is the evidence. Proof, not just talk.”

The discovery of the origin of the weapons proved to the Israelis that their enemy was not a ragged and lightly armed militia but a semi-professional army equipped by Syria and Iran to take on Israel. The weapons require serious training to operate and could be beyond the capabilities of some supposedly regular armies in the Middle East. The Kornet was unveiled by Russia in 1994. It is laser-guided, has a range of three miles and carries a double warhead capable of penetrating the reactive armour on Israeli Merkava tanks. Russia started supplying them to Syria in 1998.

Israeli forces were taken by surprise by the sophistication of the anti-tank weapons they faced. They are believed to have accounted for many of the 116 deaths the army suffered. Dozens of tanks were hit and an unknown number destroyed.

The missiles were also used against infantry, in one case bringing down a house and killing nine soldiers. They played an important part in Hezbollah’s tactics of using a network of concealed positions to set up ambushes for the Israelis as they inched in.

Last night, Hassan Nasrallah, the Hezbollah leader, said his men had achieved “a strategic, historic victory” over “a confused, cowardly and defeated” enemy. He said the militia would not disarm, as Israel and the UN Security Council were demanding. It would be “immoral, incorrect and inappropriate,” he said. “It is the wrong timing on a pyschological and moral level.”

As the militia leader was claiming victory, Ehud Olmert, the Israeli prime minister, defended his handling of the crisis and said that the massive air, ground and sea attack had changed the face of the Middle East. But he admitted that the military and political leadership was guilty of “shortcomings”, not least in underestimating the threat from anti-tank weapons.

Critics say that he placed too much faith in the ability of the air force to break the back of Hezbollah and delayed launching a major ground offensive until it was too late.

Benjamin Netanyahu, the Likud Party leader and a rival, said:

“There were many failures — failures on identifying the threat, failures in preparing to meet the threat, failures in the management of the war, failures in the management of the home front.”

Last night, President George W. Bush blamed Iran and Syria for fomenting the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah. “We can only imagine how much more dangerous this conflict would be if Iran had the nuclear weapon it seeks,” he said.

Wild Thing's comment.......

I am not surprised at all. Thanks for nothing Russia you must want to go backward in history instead of forward. Sure we can say Russia is doing this to garner protection to their country, but in all honesty I think it goes much deeper and sicker then that. It is one thing to know your enemy and we should, it is another thing to sleep with them. Will the Hezbollah call you in the morning Russia? Only time will tell.

Holocaust Cartoon Fair Opens In Iran


An international contest of cartoons on the Holocaust opened in Tehran in response to the publication in Western papers last September of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed.

"We staged this fair to explore the limits of freedom Westerners believe in," Masoud Shojai, head of the country's "Iran Cartoon" association and the fair organizer, said.
"They can freely write anything they like about our prophet, but if one raises doubts about the Holocaust he is either fined or sent to prison," he added.
"Though we do not deny that fact that Jews were killed in the (second world) war, why should the Palestinians pay for it?" Shojai told the opening ceremony of the month-long fair in Tehran's Palestine Contemporary Art Museum.

He added that around 1,100 cartoons were submitted by participants from more than 60 countries and that more than 200 are on show.

He said the top three cartoons will be announced on September 2, with the winners being awarded prizes of 12,000, 8,000 and 5,000 dollars respectively.

Shojai did not elaborate on the source of the prize money, but emphasized that it did not come from any governmental body.

The fair is being staged by Iran Cartoon and the country's largest selling newspaper Hamshahri newspaper, which is published by Tehran's conservative municipality.

The contest was announced in February in a tit-for-tat move after caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed were first printed in Denmark and then picked up and published worldwide, enraging Muslims.

Iran's fiercely anti-Israeli regime is supportive of so-called Holocaust revisionists, who maintain that the systematic slaughter by the Nazis of mainland Europe's Jews and other groups during World War II was either invented or exaggerated.

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has also prompted international anger by dismissing the Holocaust as a "myth" used to justify the creation of Israel.

Here are samples of the cartoons. Shocking this hate that Islam has.

Wild Thing's comment.......

It is not that hard, just pick a side to be on.

you celebrate life, freedom and liberty you are on the side of the USA and Israel. If you celebrate death your own and the killing your own children as you use them for suicide bombers, are into beheadings and torture of taking of limbs and such of your captives, praying 5 times a day with your ass in the air, and wearing non washed smelly turbans on your filthy hair then you are on the side of the followers of Islam......just pick a Muslim infested country and there you go.

So why am I pissed? Why does my heart hurt and my stomach feel sick? Because this is dead on serious business the taking over by the Hezboallah and other Islam groups. They have an agenda that is getting its claws dug deeply into the future of the freedoms we know and love.

What, what, what does Israel get out of this "hudna"?

Return of the captive soldiers? No.

Disarming of Hezbollah? No.

Hezbollah is claiming victory.

Ahmadinejad Demands US Change 'behavior'

August 10,2006

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused the United States of harboring imperial ambitions and demanded the administration change its behavior, in an interview with a US television network.

The Americans "want to build an empire," said Ahmadinejad, according to excerpts of the interview published by the CBS network on its website Wednesday.

"And they don't want to live side-by-side in peace with other nations. The American government, sir, it is very clear to me they have to change their behavior and everything will be resolved," said Ahmadinejad.

The interview, which was to be broadcast in full on Sunday on the "60 minutes" program, coincides with rising tensions between Washington and Tehran over Iran's disputed nuclear program and Israel's offensive against Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The hardline Iranian president said the administration of President George W. Bush had adopted a condescending attitude towards Iran over its nuclear program and criticized a UN Security Council resolution requiring Tehran suspend uranium enrichment activities or face the prospect of sanctions.

"Well, please look at the makeup of the American administration, the behavior of the American administration. See how they talk down to my nation. And this recent resolution passed about the nuclear issue, look at the wording."

The July 31 resolution was pushed through after Iran ignored a previous non-binding deadline and failed to respond to an international offer of a package of incentives in exchange for a moratorium on nuclear fuel work.

Ahmadinejad said Iran was still reviewing the package of incentives.

Western powers had "presented us with a package which we are studying right now," the president said. "We even gave them a date for our response. Ignoring that, they passed a resolution."

Ahmadinejad also expressed disappointment that the US administration had not responded to a letter he sent to Bush in May, which Tehran had presented as an important diplomatic initiative.

"Well, (with the letter) I wanted to open a window towards the light for the president so that he can see that one can look on the world through a different perspective," he said.

The Bush administration, however, dismissed the 18-page letter as little more than a rambling philosophical treatise that offered nothing new on the nuclear crisis.

Ahmadinejad scoffed at Bush for refusing his "invitation" in the form of his letter.

"We are all free to choose. But please give him this message, sir: Those who refuse to accept an invitation will not have a good ending or fate," he said.

"You see that his approval rating is dropping every day. Hatred vis-a-vis the president is increasing every day around the world."

Wild Thing's comment....

"Those who refuse to accept an invitation will not have a good ending or fate," he said.
OK here is the word Daw'ah - Inviting people to convert to Islam, if they refuse, one is then justified in waging a jihad of extermination. In jiahdi speak, he just made a direct and overt threat on our President.

Hey stinky Ahmadinejad here ya go..........this is the American way tou pissant moon god ( allah) worshiper!

"If you open the can on these worms you must be prepared to go all the way because they’re not gonna give up the fight until one of you is dead… Do you want to know how to get Capone? You’ve got to do it the Chicago Way. He pulls a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one o’ yours to the hospital, you send one o’ his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way. And that’s how you get Capone."

Iran's Plot To Mine Uranium In Africa

Times Online UK
and also FOX News USA

IRAN is seeking to import large consignments of bomb-making uranium from the African mining area that produced the Hiroshima bomb, an investigation has revealed.

A United Nations report, dated July 18, said there was “no doubt” that a huge shipment of smuggled uranium 238, uncovered by customs officials in Tanzania, was transported from the Lubumbashi mines in the Congo.

Tanzanian customs officials told The Sunday Times it was destined for the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas, and was stopped on October 22 last year during a routine check.

The disclosure will heighten western fears about the extent of Iran’s presumed nuclear weapons programme and the strategic implications of Iran’s continuing support for Hezbollah during the war with Israel.

It has also emerged that terror cells backed by Iran may be prepared to mount attacks against nuclear power plants in Britain. Intelligence circulating in Whitehall suggests that sleeper cells linked to Tehran have been conducting reconnaissance at some nuclear sites in preparation for a possible attack.

The parliamentary intelligence and security committee has reported that Iran represented one of the three biggest security threats to Britain. The UN security council has given Iran until the end of this month to halt its uranium enrichment activities. The UN has threatened sanctions if Tehran fails to do so.

A senior Tanzanian customs official said the illicit uranium shipment was found hidden in a consignment of coltan, a rare mineral used to make chips in mobile telephones. The shipment was destined for smelting in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan, delivered via Bandar Abbas, Iran’s biggest port.
“There were several containers due to be shipped and they were all routinely scanned with a Geiger counter,” the official said.
“This one was very radioactive. When we opened the container it was full of drums of coltan. Each drum contains about 50kg of ore. When the first and second rows were removed,the ones after that were found to be drums of uranium.”

In a nuclear reactor, uranium 238 can be used to breed plutonium used in nuclear weapons.

The customs officer, who spoke to The Sunday Times on condition he was not named, added: “The container was put in a secure part of the port and it was later taken away, by the Americans, I think, or at least with their help. We have all been told not to talk to anyone about this.”

The report by the UN investigation team was submitted to the chairman of the UN sanctions committee, Oswaldo de Rivero, at the end of July and will be considered soon by the security council.

It states that Tanzania provided “limited data” on three other shipments of radioactive materials seized in Dar es Salaam over the past 10 years.

The experts said: “In reference to the last shipment from October 2005, the Tanzanian government left no doubt that the uranium was transported from Lubumbashi by road through Zambia to the united republic of Tanzania.”

Lubumbashi is the capital of mineral-rich Katanga province, home of the Shinkolobwe uranium mine that produced material for the two atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945.

The mine has officially been closed since 1961, before the country’s independence from Belgium, but the UN investigators have told the security council that they found evidence of illegal mining still going on at the site.

In 1999 there were reports that the Congolese authorities had tried to re-open the mine with the help of North Korea. In recent years miners are said to have broken open the lids and extracted ore from the shafts, while police and local authorities turned a blind eye.

In June a parliamentary committee warned that Britain could be attacked by Iranian terrorists if tensions increased.

A source with access to current MI5 assessments said: “There is great concern about Iranian sleeper cells inside this country. The intelligence services are taking this threat very seriously.”

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Drooling Over Nasrallah

Iran supreme leader calls Hezbollah chief 'world favorite'

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei feted Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah as the "people's favorite person all over the world," state television said.

His comments coincided with Nasrallah vowing to strike cities in the centre of Israel and declaring that the Jewish state had failed to win any military victory after days of bloody clashes with his Shiite militant group.

"The courageous resistance of the Lebanese people and Hezbollah is the manifestation of the rebellious spirit of Muslim and Arab nations against America," Khamenei was quoted as saying.
"Today all the Arab and Muslim nations are supporting Hezbollah. Since it is resisting America and the Zionist regime, the leader of Hezbollah has become the people's favourite person all over the world," Khamenei insisted.

The supreme leader made the comments in a meeting with visiting Venezuelan president and fellow anti-American Hugo Chavez.

The Americans are still not ready to understand what is happening, so they are accusing others of interfering in Lebanese affairs," Khamenei said in response to those allegations.
According to Khamenei, "the Zionist aggression against Lebanon is a pre-planned plot by the Americans."

He also hit out at the UN Security Council -- currently pressuring Iran over its disputed nuclear programme -- by complaining that "world bodies are not bothered and they do not object" to Israel's attack.

"The Americans got the Zionist regime involved in it, thinking they will take a long stride towards the creation of an American Middle East. But they did not factor the Lebanese people into their calculation," Khamenei told Chavez, who had earlier declared his unity with Iran to "defeat imperialism."
"The Americans were aiming at creating lackey governments, but Hezbollah's blistering attack... has foiled the American plot," Khamenei added.

Khamenei and Nasrallah, may the fleas of a million camels infest and torment you in the most private parts of your bodies. Just for starters anyway.

Iran Students Leave For Lebanon To Fight Israel

Thursday, 27 July, 2006, 01:08 PM Doha Time

A group of Iranian students left for Lebanon yesterday pledging to help Hezbollah fight Israeli forces there, witnesses said.

Iranian hardliners have made great public show of recruiting volunteers for “martyrdom-seeking operations” in recent years, but there is no record of any of these Iranian volunteers taking part in attacks in Iraq, or against Israel.

“The Prophet Muhammad’s army is on its way to fight against the Zionists,” chanted some 50 volunteers at Tehran’s Behesht-e Zahra cemetery, where a large tree-lined area is dedicated to Iran’s ‘martyrs’ killed in the 1980-88 war with Iraq.
“A group of 200 volunteer students will be dispatched to Lebanon via Turkey. We are leaving Tehran today by bus,” said Amir Jalili, a spokesman for the group.
“We hope Turkey will let us pass the border and go to Syria. If not we will come back to Tehran.”

Iran is a sworn enemy of Israel and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for the Jewish state to be “wiped off the map”. But while Israel accuses Iran of arming Hezbollah, Tehran says it only gives the Lebanese group moral support.

The volunteers stressed theirs was a private initiative, not backed by state authorities. The group, calling itself the Justice-Seeking Movement of Students, said they had no military training. Some 50 students boarded buses from Tehran, but more were to join them from other cities at the border, they said.

Iranian officials have repeatedly said such groups have no official sanction and say they can operate only “as long as their ideas are limited to theory.”

“We are an independent group. We want to help our Shia brothers,” said Hadi, a 23-year-old French literature student, carrying pictures of Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, who has vowed to take the war deeper into Israel.
“We want to fulfil our religious duty. If officials ban us from going to Lebanon, we will obey,” said another spokesman Morteza Assadi before getting on the bus to go to the border.

Members of the hardline Basij militia at the cemetery said they had no intention of taking action against Israel without the green light from Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who has the last word on all matters in Iran.

Iran Mullahs' Aim

By: Amil Imani
Amil Imani is an Iranian born American citizen and pro-democracy activist who resides in the United States of America.

The world is presently at its most wicked. It is beyond human help. It requires only a nudge to implode and prepare for the divine ruler, the Saheb-ul-Zaman (the Mahdi, the Lord of the Age) to come and set it aright. It is the sacred duty and privilege of every Muslim to do all he can to hasten the death of the old world and the birth of the global Islamic Ummeh. Thus goes the thinking of Iran’s ruling mullahs and their hand-picked president Mahmood Ahmadinejad.

It seems like the old millennialism thinking, a belief held, in one version or another by major religions. Indeed it is, with one terribly alarming difference. This time around, a group of believers with tremendous resources are intent upon forcing the issue, making the conditions so dire that it leaves the reluctant Saheb-ul-Zaman no choice but to appear and assume his universal reign.

The belief in supernatural intervention to set the world aright is scriptural to major religions, including Islam. The Jews have been earnestly supplicating the Lord for the Messiah to come; the Christians are impatiently awaiting the second coming of Christ; and, the Zoroastrians are convinced that Saoshayant is the one who shall come, defeat the trouble-making Ahriman—Satan—and make the creatures again pure.

Up to this point millennialism was a belief and a hope. No one ever aspired to or had the means of making the anticipated events come about. The matter was in the hands of God. The Muslims’ perennial prayer recited every day, posted in mosques and even on bumpers of vehicles has been, “O, Saheb-ul-Zaman, hasten your coming.” The prayer for the advent, thus far, has been limited to passive supplications of the faithful.

It is a well-established fact that beliefs are potent impetus to action. If you believe your home is about to be burglarized, you secure the house and take other precautions. If you, under the influence of cocaine, believe that a bug is burrowing into your skin, you may take a knife to your own body and try to dig the imaginary bug out.

Hence, it is shortsighted to dismiss the mullahs as a bunch of lunatics who are out of touch with reality and that they have no intention of doing catastrophic mischief to compel the Mahdi’s coming. Maybe some arming of the Iraqi Shiites, a little support for Hizbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine—but no, no major idiocy. After all, they are rational people and in touch with reality. Any large scale troublemaking spells their doom as well. Thus goes the rationalization—the greatest risky tranquilizer of the mind.

Rationalization, compounded by complacency and denial, can be deadly, particularly when the adversaries have different realities. To the fanatic mullahs ruling Iran Sahaeb-ul-Zaman is an absolute reality and his promised advent is irrevocably ordained. This is their reality and their belief and they have every intention of leading their life according to them.

It is foolish for the non-Muslims to dismiss the mullahs and the Bin Ladens as a bunch of fringe lunatics who are going to go away simply by wishing it. The Islamist reality is that the non-Muslims are the ones who deserve to be done away with; they are the ones who have refused to submit to the summons of Allah for much too long; and, it is time for the faithful to get rid of them. This makes for a lopsided contest. The non-Muslims are passively wishing that the nightmarish surge of Islamism is only a temporary fringe phenomenon doomed to die on its own, while the other side is marshalling its huge destructive power to accomplish its aim by eradicating the non-Muslims.

The cabal of fanatical mullahs ruling Iran has lost its patience, not only with the unbelievers, but also with the Mahdi as well. They aim to force his arrival. The mullahs believe they have the means to make it impossible for the Mahdi to tarry any longer by causing unprecedented death and destruction—conditions deemed essential for his coming. The world must hit the very bottom, before the Savior of the world comes to the rescue, so they firmly believe.

The question is: What does prudence demand? Clearly wishing the problem to go away is not a very effective solution in the same way that wishing for the Saheb-ul-Zaman to come has not been. Reasoning and negotiating with the mullahs and their ilk hold very little, if any, lasting promise. There are always the easy ways of denial and appeasement. We are very good at both practices. No, the Muslims have been around for ages. They make some troubles from time to time. But they really are not all that bad and dangerous. We’ll get along. If we have too, we’ll even let them live by the Sharia—their stone-age laws— in our midst. We’ll be reasonable and they will come around. We’ll just have to get along. So goes the line.

One problem: The other side doesn’t think this way. The Islamofascists don’t believe in the notion of “Live and let live.” They believe that the earth is Allah’s and it has been sullied by the heathens, the unbelievers and the kafir for far too long. Now that they have the means, they aim to make the world to their design and bring about the final solution—a nasty reminder of not too long ago Nazism.

Is this alarmist, or even hatemongering? You don’t believe Muslims can be that intolerant and hostile toward non-Muslims and that they’ll never go to the extremes? You know Muslims personally in your neighborhood or your work place and they are nice people? The nice Muslims you personally know are presently small minorities in alien lands. They have to be nice, and they may indeed be nice. Yet, when the main force of Islam surges forward, these nice folks will either have to join it or be swept aside like the rest of the resisters.

The concern is not with individual Muslims who live as solid citizens in democratic societies. They may have developed a taste for the freedom democracy bestows or have simply learned to tolerate it.

Our concern is with the gathering Islamic storm from the heart of Islamdom. To truly appreciate Islam, you must experience firsthand Islam in power. Take a quick trip to the lands of the Muslims and find out for yourself how horribly they treat the non-Muslims, even the, “People of the book,” Jews and Christians. Try to have a Bible study group or build a church in Saudi Arabia and discover the benevolence of Islamic rule.
The world is a laboratory where the experiment with Islam shows irrefutable results. To the extent that Islam rules any society, that society is stagnant, backward thinking, repressive and violent. The Islamic Republic of Iran represents the cutting edge for the newly petrodollar invigorated Islam. It is determined to complete its task of ending the world of “Dar-ul-Harb”—the non-Muslim world to be warred upon—and establishing the “Dar-ul-Solh,” or “Dar-ul-Salam”—the Muslim world of the Ummeh under the rule of the Mahdi. If achieving this aim hinges on the conflagration of the Third World War, the mullahs are happy to make it happen.

Iran TV Urges Boycott of 'Zionist' Products

Iran TV urges boycott of 'Zionist' products

TEHRAN (AFP) - Iran has launched a major campaign urging consumers to stop buying "Zionist" products, ranging from Coca-Cola and Pepsi soft drinks, to Calvin Klein clothing and Nestle food products.

"Pepsi stands for 'Pay Each Penny to Save Israel", viewers in the Islamic republic have been warned in an oft-repeated three-minute infomercial on state television, prompted by Israel's ongoing assault against the Palestinian territories and Lebanon.

"Zionists are the biggest shareholders in the soft drinks industry, and each year they make billions of dollars for their colonialist aims," consumers with a thirst for fizz have been told.

Coca-Cola is also not left unscathed by the new twist to the cola wars.

"This firm openly supports Israel and has even said that it is ready to allocate great deal of money to topple the Islamic republic," state television said.

Both Pepsi and Coca-Cola have factories in Iran, although state television gave no indication over whether their operations would be affected.

A popular British high-street retailer, as well as a number of multinational firms, were also singled out for their links to the alleged international Jewish conspiracy to control the world.
"Marks and Spencer has very close relations with the Israeli regime and one its primary aims is to help the development of the Israeli economy," the infomercial claimed.
"Nestle is a Swiss food processing firm which in 2000 announced that it will invest millions of dollars in Israel to build a factory there," it added, while neglecting to mention that Nestle also has a factory in Iran.
The world's largest chip maker Intel was also branded as "one of Israel's biggest supporters".
"Its first overseas branch was set up in Haifa in 1974. In 2000 it employed more that 4,000 Israelis. Its top managers have said that they are going to invest 6.5 billion dollars in Israel," would-be Intel customers have been told.
"McDonalds, Timberland, Revlon, Garnier, Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and L'Oreal are only some of the firms which belong to the Zionist regime," state television said, before taking a swipe at what it said were less vigilant Arab nations.
"Unfortunately most of the streets of Arab nations are filled with commercials which advertise Israeli products. For each purchase, the money is converted into bullets piercing the chests of the Lebanese and Palestinian kids," it fumed.

Iran's hardline Islamic leadership fiercely objects to the very existence of Israel, with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calling for the Jewish state to be "wiped off the map" or moved elsewhere on the planet.

The head of Iran's parliament, Gholam Ali Hadad-Adel, on Tuesday also branded Israel a "filthy tumor in the body of the Islamic world".

Tehran has also been accused of providing financial and military support to its fellow Shiites in Lebanon's Hezbollah as well as the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

But the regime continues to insists that it only gives "moral" support, and has in recent days decorated Tehran's streets with huge posters of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah.

"The Islamic republic of Iran has never interfered in Syrian and Lebanese internal affairs. Our support is only moral," foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi repeated to the ISNA news agency Wednesday.

State television meanwhile announced Iran's Red Crescent was sending its first consignment of humanitarian aid to Lebanon -- a 60-tonne consignment of rice, sugar, beans, date, tents and sleeping bags.

Wild Thing's comment.......

So while I sit here enjoying my Diet Coke, as I finish my yummy hamburger from McDonalds….I try hard not to spill any ketchup on my Calvin Klein jeans and Tommy Hilfiger sweatshirt, being sure to re-apply my ever soooo smooth and silky L'Oreal lip gloss and Revlon lipstick when I am done. I will thank God that all these things were invented and that I don't live in Iran where I would have to wear a Burka over my Victoria Secret lingerie to really look devote, and Nick would be sitting around with a towell on his head holding the channel changer in one hand and an RPG in the other.

Iran Giving $100 Million to Hezbollah

Israel: Iran Giving $100 Million to Hezbollah

Israel's United Nations ambassador Dan Gillerman claims his government is in possession of documents that reveal Iran is funding the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah to the amount of $100 million yearly.

Gillerman made his accusations at U.N. headquarters where he was conferring with Security Council diplomats about the latest developments in the war-torn region.

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who returned to New York City last night, briefed Council members on the latest developments of his Mideast negotiating team.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is scheduled to have dinner with Annan Thursday evening in New York and meet members of the U.N. Mideast negotiating team Friday.

Tehran Says Here Hezbollah Have Some Suicide Bombers

Iranian Suicide Bombers Join Hezollah in Lebanon
adnkronos International

Tehran, 20 July (AKI) - A spokesman for an Iranian militant group which claims to have 55,000 would-be suicide bombers among its members said on Thursday that 27 of its men have joined Hezbollah militias in Lebanon to fight against Israel. "The first two groups of esteshhadioun (volunteers of martyrdom) have already reached Lebanon," Mohammad Ali Samadi told Adnkronos International (AKI). Speaking on the phone from the organization's headquarters in Tehran, Samadi said the militants reached Lebanon through Syria.

The spokesman for the Headquarters for the Glory of Martyrs of the International Movement said its militants in Lebanon were:

"27 people selected from the 55,000 members who spoke fluent Arabic and have received adequate training to fight beside their Lebanese brothers against the Zionist enemy."

The spokesman however said the militants would not engage in combat but would "identify Zionist targets and then attack them with actions of martyrdom."

Wild Thing's comment.......
In a war zone, if some jackass is running at me hoping to explode a bullet proof vest, I'm going to shoot him in the head well before he gets there. Suicide bombers do not work as well in a war zone. And suicide bombers haven't been too effective against jets dropping bombs.

So this is the 'superiority' of the Muslims?? HAHAHA

This is Muslim technology?!? HAHAHA

This is the fierce warriors of Islam?? HAHAHA

Couldn't organize some sort of mass martyrdom for the 54,973 suicide bombers that don't get to go Paradise, that are staying back at home in Iran?

Iran's Death Seeking Hezbollah Offers More Yadda Yadda

Agents seized at border, while Iranians ID targets to 'end Anglo-Saxon civilization'

Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah

WASHINGTON – The Iranian-sponsored terrorist organization Hezbollah' threats to attack U.S. interests around the world are being taken seriously by U.S. law enforcement and intelligence officials who say the group's agents have attempted illegal entry into the country through the southern border and have staked out 20 potential sensitive targets that Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad boasted could "end Anglo-Saxon civilization".

We have 2,000 volunteers who have registered since last year," Hezbollah spokesman Mojtaba Bigdeli told Reuters yesterday. "They have been trained and they can become fully armed. We are ready to dispatch them to every corner of the world to jeopardize Israel and America's interests. We are only waiting for the supreme leader's green light to take action. If America wants to ignite World War III … we welcome it."

The "supreme leader" is Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei.

Hezbollah and Iranian officials are known for their hyperbolic rhetoric, but U.S. officials say it would be a mistake to dismiss them categorically.

FBI Director Robert Mueller confirmed earlier this spring that Hezbollah agents were caught trying to enter the country illegally through the Mexican border.

Likewise, James Woolsey, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in February that "Ahmadinejad who is close to Hezbollah, says that he knows of the 29 sensitive sites in the U.S. and the West, which he has spied out and is ready to attack in order to, quote: 'End Anglo-Saxon civilization."

In May – long before the recent escalation of conflict with Israel – more than 100 "martyrdom-seeking volunteers" affiliated with Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps gathered to warn the U.S. they would blow up American interests around the world if their country's nuclear installations came under attack.

Mohammad-Ali Samadi, spokesman for a government-orchestrated campaign to recruit suicide bombers, said more than 55,000 volunteers had been registered, according to Iran Focus.

The group – called the Headquarters to Commemorate the Martyrs of the Global Islamic Movement – was established in 2004 to carry out suicide attacks against three targets: "The infidels occupying Iraq," Israel and author Salman Rushdie.

In February, it launched a new recruitment drive to fight "global blasphemy."

Iran estimated then that Israel would strike Tehran's nuclear facilities within a year and has been planning retaliatory attacks against Israeli, American and British interests, according to senior Lebanese political sources.

"We are only waiting. "If America wants to ignite World War Three ... we welcome it," he said.

Iran and Hezbollah Openly Reveal Their Weakness

The Hizbullah fighters expect and "yearn" for a ground conflict with the Zionist ground forces.

Iran Warns Israel Of 'unimaginable losses' If Syria Hit

Iran warned its arch-enemy Israel of "unimaginable losses" if it attacks Syria and vowed that it was standing by the Syrian people.
"We hope the Zionist regime does not make the mistake of attacking Syria, because extending the front would definitely make the Zionist regime face unimaginable losses," foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told reporters.
Iran is standing by the Syrian people," he said of the Islamic republic's sole regional ally.
"We have offered and will offer Syria and Lebanon spiritual and humanitarian support," Asefi insisted, reiterating Iran's denial that it is providing military and financial assistance to the Hezbollah movement.

The Israeli army has said Hezbollah militants had used an Iranian-built radar-guided anti-ship missile in an attack on Friday on an Israeli warship off Lebanon's coast.

An Israeli military intelligence official has also alleged that around 100 members of Iran's powerful ideological army the elite Revolutionary Guards were in Lebanon, acting as military advisors to Hezbollah.

Iran is a major backer of Hezbollah, but regularly insists that it only gives "moral support" to the Shiite movement.

"We have no Guards there. It is not true that we have sent missiles. Hezbollah is capable enough. The Zionist regime is under pressure," Asefi said, repeating Iran's denial of any connection to the attack.

He also hit out at the United States after President George W. Bush said Israel had "every right to defend itself".

"The United States has had a destructive role by vetoing resolutions and hence encouraging the Israeli crimes," Asefi said, referring to Washington's use of its veto in the UN Security Council Thursday to block a resolution calling for a halt to an Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip.
"The United States should reconsider its policies and correct its wrong attitude of supporting the Zionist regime."

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad boasted that Israel was not powerful enough to take on Iran and also warned against an attack against Syria.

"Thanks be to God, despite its criminal and savage nature, the Zionist regime and its supporters in the West do not have the power to look in the same way towards Iran," the fiercely anti-Israeli president said.
"If Israel commits another act of idiocy and aggresses Syria, this will be the same as an aggression against the entire Islamic world and it will receive a stinging response," Ahmadinejad said in a telephone conversation with his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad.

The hardline president, who has calling for Israel to be "wiped off the map" or moved as far away as Alaska, has also compared Israel's military strikes on Gaza and Lebanon to tactics used by Nazi Germany's leader Adolf Hitler.

"Their methods resemble Hitler's. When Hitler wanted to launch an attack, he came up with a pretext," Ahmadinejad said Saturday.
"Zionists say they are Hitler's victims, but they have the same nature as Hitler," said Ahmadinejad, who has previously described the Holocaust of six million Jews in wartime Europe as "a myth."
"We have two solutions for the crisis. One of them, which is a logical one, is that as you (Western nations) who imposed this regime by fabricating stories, you put an end to it and take it with you," he said.

And then there is this freak, Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah:
Nasrallah: ‘We Yearn for Ground Conflict’

(IsraelNN.com) Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah spoke on the terrorist organization’s television station, al-Manar on Sunday evening, his first appearance since the beginning of the Re-engagement War last week.

“The Israeli intelligence could not penetrate our organizations,” taunted Nasrallah in remarks aimed at the IDF and Israeli security services. “They say that we have only dozens of missiles, but if you believe this and plan your moves accordingly, you will fail.”
Nasrallah said he looked forward to ground operations, and told the Lebanese public that it was in a historic phase which “has many hopes for saving the entire Islamic nation.”
Addressing his remarks to the IDF leadership, he added, “The Hizbullah fighters expect and yearn for a ground conflict with the Zionist ground forces. In this conflict the Israelis will be defeated.”

Wild Thing's comment.......
Iran...STFU! You need to worry about GWB ripping your diaper off your nasty head!

The terrorist's and I include this twit President of Iran and Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah and all THEIR ground (suicide bombers etc.) are like betting on a replay of a game and then losing.

Iran has already promised to wipe Israel off the map. They have promised to nuke Israel, several times….. the threat has been made not only by Ahmadinejad but also by others, which means that it makes no difference if Israel goes into Syria. Iran is coming for them. (or so they say)

Bully pulpit, attention seeking, goat-loving sandflea, and yes loather of all things human (human being any NON Muslim) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad just keeps making his threats.

And as for you smelly towel head Hizbullah Chief Hassan Nasrallah, the more grandiose the rhetoric, the more desperate the enemy.

“The Hizbullah fighters expect and yearn for a ground conflict with the Zionist ground forces. ".........................
isn't the word “Yearn” kind of Gay for a guy. And when the ground offensive does come, they will be the first to run to the UN whimpering about how weak they are.

Iran President: Attack on Syria Is an Attack on Islam

Iran President: Attack on Syria Is an Attack on Islam

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran's president warned Israel against extending its offensive in Lebanon to neighboring Syria, saying such a move would be regarded as an attack on the whole Islamic world and be met with a "crushing response," the official Iranian news agency said Friday.

Israel has intensified its attacks on Lebanon to put pressure on the government and force Hezbollah to free the two Israeli soldiers it captured Wednesday. Syria and Iran are the top backers of the Shiite Hezbollah guerrilla group in Lebanon.

"If the occupying regime of Jerusalem attacks Syria, it will be equivalent to an attack on the whole Islamic world and the regime (Israel) will face a crushing response" Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by IRNA.

Ahmadinejad made the comments in a telephone conversation with Syrian President Bashar Assad to assure him of his support, the agency said.

The Iranian leader called on Muslim countries to create a united front against Israel.

"The Islamic world, especially countries in this region, need more unity and integrity, particularly in the context of Lebanon and Palestine," Ahmadinejad said.

Separately, the spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry, Hamid Reza Asefi, denied Israeli allegations that the captured Israeli soldiers were being transferred to Iran.

On Thursday, Israel said it had information that Hezbollah guerrillas were trying to transfer the soldiers to Iran, apparently to prevent Israeli troops from rescuing them.

"These sort of accusations are simply nonsense," Asefi said, according to IRNA.

Tehran Bans Senior U.N. Inspector

Tehran bans senior U.N. inspector from Iran: diplomat

When Chris Charlier arrived in Iran in April of this year, he was received the same way as had always been the case in each of over 20 visits to the Islamic Republic of Iran.

"Wherever we went, whatever we did, they always followed us, monitoring us with video cameras and capturing every single one of our conversations. Never letting us out of their sight for a second, watching everything over our shoulder."

"How the devil were we supposed to rationally do our work" comments the 64-year old Belgian.

"I haven't been allowed to travel to Iran since April," he was quoted as saying. "Since April, I have had no more contact with the Iranian nuclear file."

For the first time a Viennese based inspector speaks openly and under his own name about the conditions under which UN inspectors try to bring to light the darkness surrounding the Iranian nuclear program.

The reason for his outspoken comments is because since April of this year he is for all practical purposes unemployed. Responsible for this is his Vienna based direct superior, Mohammad El-Baradei.

When Baradei went to Tehran in April for consultations, the chief negotiator of the Shiite theocracy, Ali Larijani gave him an ultimatum to fire Chris Charlier

Tehran denies pursuing atomic weapons but refuses to temporarily halt its enrichment program as demanded by Germany and the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council.

Charlier was also quoted as saying he believed Iran was probably still hiding things from the IAEA.

"It is very probable that Tehran is doing things in the nuclear field that to this day we have no clue about," he said.

Wild Thing's comment.......
But of course, would we expect nothing less from a terrorist President of Iran.
After seeing the incompetent Blix letting Saddam get away with anything he wanted, Iran simply wants to play the same game as well. Continue to request a change until they get someone as stupid as Blix, or should I say as corrupt, and they'll be home free.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Rejects Talks with USA

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has rejected the prospect of talks with the United States on the nuclear program, saying nothing would be gained, state television reported Tuesday.

"Negotiations with the United States would have no benefit for us, and we do not need them," the television quoted Khamenei as telling Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade.

Khamenei did not rule out nuclear negotiations, although he insisted any such talks would be on Iranian terms.

"We will not negotiate with anybody on our certain right to reach and use nuclear technology. However, if they recognize this right for us, we are prepared to talk about international controls, supervision and guarantees, and the grounds for such negotiations have been prepared," he said.

The United States, China, Russia, France, Britain and Germany have offered Iran state-of-the-art civilian nuclear technology and other incentives on condition it halts enrichment. Western diplomats say this demand is not negotiable.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in April such talks were not needed since a permanent Iraqi government was in place.

Direct talks between the United States and Iran are rare. Most famously, they met in secret during the Iran-Contra scandal in the 1980s in which Washington supplied arms to Iran in return for Tehran's help releasing U.S. hostages held in the Lebanon.

Washington broke ties with Tehran shortly after the 1979 Islamic revolution when radical Iranian students held 52 Americans at the U.S. embassy hostage for 444 days.

Syria and Iran Strengthen Ties

SAYEDA ZEINAB, Syria, June 24 — For a long time, the top-selling poster in Hassan al-Sheikh's gift shop here showed President Bashar al-Assad of Syria seated beside the leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon.

A few weeks ago a slightly different poster overtook it, this one with the Syrian president, the Hezbollah leader and Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Mr. Sheikh's shop is on a bustling street in Sayeda Zeinab beside the entrance to a Shiite shrine that shares a name with the town, and both have been packed with Iranian pilgrims, many more than in years past.

Those changes illustrate what may well be a worrying phenomenon for Washington as it seeks to contain Iran and isolate Syria: the two governments, and their people, are tightening relations on several fronts as power in the region shifts away from the once dominant Sunni to Shiites, led by Iran.

This is, in part, the result of the American installation of a Shiite-dominated government in Iraq after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein and his Sunni-led government. But it is also spurred by the growing belief in Arab capitals that the Bush administration may soon negotiate a deal with Tehran over Iraq and nuclear weapons.

Arab governments once hostile to Iran have begun to soften their public posture after decades of animosity toward Tehran. President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt met Iran's national security chief, Ali Larijani, in Cairo recently, and Saudi Arabia's foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, visited Tehran this month and declared the two nations to be good friends. In addition, Iranian officials recently sent messages of friendship to every Persian Gulf state.

Amid all that activity, Syria has managed to inflate its power in the region by playing a subtle double game and setting itself up as a possible go-between.

Syria and Iran began establishing closer ties decades ago, but the real strides have been recent.

Syria has signed expanded military and economic agreements with Tehran covering everything from telecommunications projects to higher education. Syria will buy missiles from Iran. Iran will build cement and car plants in Syria.

At the same time, Arab nations that have been cool to Syria are now reaching out to it. Syria received the king of Bahrain this month, he met Thursday with Mr. Mubarak, and this week President Assad held a telephone conference with King Abdullah II of Jordan. Relations between Amman and Damascus became strained when Jordanian officials accused Syria of allowing Hamas to smuggle weapons across Syrian territory and into Jordan — charges Syria has denied.

"Iran injected Syria with a lot of confidence: stand up, show defiance," said Sami Moubayed, a political analyst and writer in Damascus. "Iran is giving them advice. This is certain."

Iran Says It Would 'use nuclear defense' If Threatened

Iran's defense minister on Thursday vowed that his country would "use nuclear defense as a potential" if "threatened by any power."

Speaking following a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Hassan Ali Turkmani in Teheran on Thursday, Iranian Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar emphasized that Iran "should be ready for confronting all kinds of threats."

Teheran has denied accusations by the US and its allies that Iran was seeking uranium enrichment technologies in order to develop nuclear weapons, saying its program was only meant to generate electricity.

Meanwhile, Turkmani told reporters that Syria and Iran's "policy is the policy of strengthening resistance and tackling the threats of United States and Israel."

He added that he wouldn't give details of joint defense plans against Israel, although the plans were "not secret."

Answering a question regarding a newly-developed Shahab 4 missile, Najjar said that research activities were underway. Iran would continue production of "different missiles and research," Najjar declared.

The most recent Iranian missile was the Shahab 3, and Iran recently claimed to have followed it up with the development of the Shahab 4.

Iran's definition of a threat is the continued existence of Israel and the United States. So much for their claims of not having Nukes in the Works!

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Say What?

Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei delivers a speech on the 17th anniversary of death of the late revolutionary founder Ayatollah Khomeini, in his mausoleum just outside Tehran, Iran, Sunday, June 4, 2006. Khamenei, warned Sunday that energy supplies from the Gulf region would be disrupted if Iran came under attack from the United States and insisted his country would not give up the right to produce nuclear fuel. (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi)

TEHRAN, Iran - Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Sunday that Western accusations Iran seeks nuclear weapons are a "sheer lie," and he declared that attempts to punish Tehran would jeopardize the world's oil supply.

The implied threat was dismissed by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who said Iran was too dependent on oil revenues to disrupt the flow of crude. She also put Iran on notice that the incentives offered by the West to suspend its nuclear program are not open-ended, although she declined to say Tehran had a firm deadline to respond.

Khamenei, who has the final say on all state matters, made his comments in a speech broadcast live on state radio.

"If you make any mistake (punish or attack Iran), definitely shipment of energy from this region will be seriously jeopardized," Khamenei said, addressing Western nations.

Khamenei said the United States and its allies would be unable to secure oil shipments passing out of the Gulf through the strategic Strait of Hormuz to the Indian Ocean. At its narrowest point, the strait separating Iran from the Arabian peninsula is 44 miles wide.

"You will never be able to protect the energy supply in this region. You will not be able to do it," he said.

Khamenei, however, did not specify how oil supplies would be disrupted, and he insisted to the assembled throng that Iran would not be "the initiator of war."

In a television interview later Sunday, Rice sought to play down Khamenei's remarks.

"I think that we shouldn't place too much emphasis on a threat of this kind," she said on "Fox News Sunday." "Obviously it would be a very serious problem for Iran if oil were to be disrupted on the market."

Last week, Rice said the United States was prepared to join the European Union and Germany in negotiations with Iran only if Tehran agreed to stop enriching uranium. The Western nations fear Iran is using what it calls a peaceful civilian nuclear program as a cover to build atomic weapons.

Khamenei said Iran was not a threat to any country.

"We have not threatened any neighbor," he said, calling the accusation that Iran is seeking an atom bomb "a sheer lie."
"It's against Islamic teachings," he said.
However, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad repeatedly has questioned Israel's right to exist and said in October the Jewish state should be "wiped off the map." Israel is believed to possess the world's sixth-largest nuclear arsenal.

Khamenei's harsh rhetoric came a day after Ahmadinejad said a breakthrough in negotiations was possible. He welcomed the U.S. offer to join talks but rejected preconditions. Ahmadinejad attended Khamenei's speech Sunday.

Contrary to Khamenei's remarks, other Iranian officials have repeatedly ruled out using oil as weapon. Iran is the world's fourth-largest oil exporter and has the second-largest reserves in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries.

Iranian political analyst Saeed Leilaz said Khamenei's remarks were more important for what he did not say.

"He didn't close the door for dialogue or understanding with the U.S.," Leilaz said. "Khamenei even didn't close the door for possibility of Iran suspending uranium enrichment. Iran is after maximum concessions from America."

Rajabali Mazrouei, a former reformist lawmaker and political analyst, said Iran would be unable to close the strait.

"Khamenei's comments should be assessed as part of usual exchange harsh of rhetoric between Iran and the United States," he said. "Iran is in a position to temporarily disrupt oil shipments from the region but it will not be in a position to close the Strait of Hormuz permanently."

Khamenei's remarks appeared to reflect a deep concern for his country's future energy supplies. Despite its huge oil reserves, Iran already must import a large portion of the gasoline and diesel it needs because domestic refinery capacity is insufficient.

"That a country has no right to achieve proficiency in nuclear technology means it has to beg a few Western and European countries for energy in the next 20 years," he said. "Which honest leader is ready to accept this?"

After months of threats and counter-threats, Washington said last week it was prepared to join talks with Iran if it stopped enriching uranium, which can produce fuel for electricity-generating reactors or, if sufficiently processed, the fissile core for a warhead.

In conjunction with the U.S. offer, the five permanent U.N. Security Council members and Germany drew up a fresh economic incentive package for Iran last week but made it conditional on an end to enrichment. Iran could face sanctions if it declines the package.

Ahmadinejad said the Iranians would study the offer carefully but rejected preconditions.

Rice said the offer is not open-ended.

"I'm not one for timelines and specific schedules, but I think it's fair to say that we really do have to have this settled over a matter of weeks, not months," she said.

"Hezbollah, Hezbollah," Chanted The Iranian Crowd of Suicide Bombers

Iranians Pledge to Become Suicide Bombers

Under a banner showing coffins draped with American, British and Israeli flags, more than 100 Iranian men and women pledged Thursday to become suicide bombers - if necessary - to defend their country and Islam.

The event, held in a burial area for war dead and martyrs, was similar to others in recent years, with Islamic chants and songs and volunteers donning white coverings to symbolize their willingness to die.

But this gathering - coming at a time when many Iranians worry their country could come under attack by the United States or Israel - was tailored to send a message of defiance against any possible military action over Iran's nuclear program.

The threats from America have swelled our ranks and given us added conviction," said 27-year-old Margess, who like the other volunteers would only give her first name and used a scarf to cover all but her eyes. "We will stand up against them with our lives."

No weapons or explosives were displayed, but the ceremony was organized by a shadowy group believed to have links to the Basiji paramilitary group that is backed by Iran's Islamic regime.

A huge banner used as a backdrop showed flag-covered coffins. And a message - in English - promised to "damage the U.S. worldwide" in retaliation for any attack on Iran.

"If asked by Iran's leaders, we will fight anywhere," said Hussein, 56, a volunteer with a wife and four children. "The world should know that Iranians embrace martyrdom."

One of the organizers - from a group calling itself the Headquarters for Commemorating Martyrs of the Global Islamic Movement - shouted out names and handed out silver dog tags.

Volunteers mingled around monuments to attackers, including a Palestinian suicide bomber, an Iranian militiaman killed by the U.S. forces in Iraq and two commandos who helped carry out the 1983 blast at Marine barracks in Beirut that killed 241 U.S. servicemen. An almost simultaneous bombing killed 56 French peacekeepers.

Hezbollah, Hezbollah," the crowd chanted as a singing group supported by the Lebanese guerrilla group began songs calling for Islamic resistance. Iran is one of the key backers of the Shiite Muslim Hezbollah.

The volunteer bombers waved Qurans, the Muslim holy book, and one held up a placard paraphrasing Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, leader of the 1979 Islamic Revolution: "Our nation is the first to prove that America can't do anything."
"We are here to prove that Muslims - that Iranians - have solidarity and we will willingly shed our blood," said Azadeh, a 20-year-old volunteer who wore a postcard of Khomeini and his successor, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, pinned to her white cloak.

On each postcard a message was stenciled: "Those who are ready to die."

"I only have one son and he's volunteered as a martyr," said Marium Nematzadeh, 56. "I have deep belief in my religion and my leaders. I would even become a bomber if asked."

Iran Test-fires Long-range Missile Again

Iran test-fires long-range missile

Iran conducted a test launch Tuesday night of the Shihab-3 intermediate-range ballistic missile, which is capable of reaching Israel and US targets in the region, Israel Radio reported. The test came hours before Prime Minister Ehud Olmert met with US President George W Bush in Washington to discuss the Iranian threat.

Military officials said it was not clear if this most recent test indicated an advance in the capabilities of the Shihab 3.

They said the test was likely timed to coincide with the Washington summit and with comments made by Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah during celebrations in Beirut marking the 6th anniversary of Israel's withdrawal from southern Lebanon.

"What deters the enemy from launching an aggression is the resistance's continuous readiness to respond," Nasrallah told scores of supporters. "Northern Israel today is within the range of the resistance's rockets. The ports, bases, factories and everything is within that range."

The Shihab test was only "partly successful," according to news reports. The nature of the difficulties was not clear. The Iranians have been working to extend the Shihab 3's current maximum range of 1,300 kilometers. A year ago, they successfully tested a solid fuel motor for the missile.

The Shihab test was only "partly successful," according to news reports. The nature of the difficulties was not clear. The Iranians have been working to extend the Shihab 3's current maximum range of 1,300 kilometers. A year ago, they successfully tested a solid fuel motor for the missile.

In December, Israel's defense against an Iranian ballistic missile strike, the Arrow 2 missile system, succeeded in intercepting an incoming rocket simulating an Iranian Shihab 3 at an altitude higher than in the previous 13 exercises.

Maj. Elyakim, commander of the Arrow missile battery at Palmahim, told The Jerusalem Post last month that the missile crews were always on high alert, but that they were recently instructed to "raise their level of awareness" because of developments on the Iranian front.

The Arrow missile, he said, could intercept and destroy any Iranian missile fired at Israel, including ones carrying non-conventional warheads. Experts believe that if Iran is attacked by Israel or the US, Teheran would respond by firing long-range ballistic missiles at Israel.

Iran: Fund To 'Demolish' Israel Set Up

Iranian students set up fund dedicated to Israel's destruction. Encouraged by regime, students call fund 'symbolic move' in support of Palestinians
YNet news

Iranian students set up fund dedicated to Israel's destruction. Encouraged by regime, students call fund 'symbolic move' in support of Palestinians.

A group of Iranian students announced Sunday at an event attended by a high-ranking member of the elite Revolutionary Guard that they were setting up a fund to destroy Israel.

Although the initiative's name - "The Student Fund for Demolishing Israel" - brings to mind President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's call last year to destroy the Jewish state, an organizer said its goal was to support the cash-strapped Palestinian government.

Some 300 students attended the event hosted by a group calling itself the Movement of Justice-seeking Students at the University of Tehran.

"This is a symbolic move to attract public attention to the Palestinian cause at a time when Western countries have halted financial support to the Hamas-led government," Javad Miri, the group's spokesman, told The Associated Press.
Miri said the group was collecting money that it will send it to the Hamas-led Palestinian government. "When an elected government is in power in Palestine and Israel is pressuring it, everybody should help the Palestinians."

The United States and the European Union halted most of their aid to the Palestinian Authority following Hamas' victory in Palestinian legislative elections in January, requiring that the group renounce violence and recognize Israel.

Popular campaigns to collect money for the Palestinians have been launched in several Arab countries.

'We are ready to support Palestinians by any means'

A general in the elite Revolutionary Guards, Saeed Ghassemi, struck a militaristic note in his address to the crowd. "Resistance is the only solution for Palestinians," He said. "If you abandon the sword, that will be the beginning of your end," he advised Hamas.

But the response to the call for donations was hardly overwhelming. About 10 students dropped money into a box labeled with the fund's name. They also put stones in the box in a symbolic gesture of solidarity that alluded to the first Palestinian intefadeh, or uprising, when youths pelted Israeli soldiers with rocks.

"I hope it's the start of popular financial support for the Hamas government," Einollah Zarrinjoo, 21, a male student of philosophy said.
Mahin Rezai, 20, a female Persian literature student said, "We are ready to support Palestinians by any means. Silence could make the situation worse."

In April, Iran said it would give the Palestinian Authority USD 50 million in aid. Last year, Ahmadinejad said the Holocaust was a myth and that Israel should be wiped out. Apparently taking a cue from the president, the Iranian Foreign Ministry announced plans to hold a conference to examine evidence of the Holocaust.

The hard-line Association of Muslim Journalists has also proposed a similar event. Dates have not been set for either.

Iran is currently home to about 25,000 Jews who are represented by a Jewish lawmaker in parliament. About 75,000 left the country after the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Iran Prepares 'Judgment Day' Attack Plan

Iran Prepares 'Judgment Day' Attack Plan
by Kenneth R. Timmerman

The Islamic Republic of Iran is planning to use as many as eight different terrorist groups to launch attacks against the United States and its allies in the region should the United States launch military strikes against its nuclear facilities, a London-based newspaper reported.

Another Iranian intelligence source tells NewsMax that Iran plans suicide strikes in the United States, and may seek to hold mass numbers of Americans hostage.

Ali Reza Nourizadeh's column in Al Sharq al Awsat, a London newspaper, citing a "senior source" in the office of Iranian joint chief of staff Hassan Firouzabadi, noted that "eight fundamentalist Islamist organizations have received large sums of money in the last month from the Iranian intelligence services" as part of the plan.

The Revolutionary Guards' "al Qods" Jerusalem Force will coordinate the plan, codenamed "al Qiyamah, the Islamic word for Judgment Day," Al Sharq al Awsat reported.

The al Qods force is the fourth branch of the Revolutionary Guards Corps, after its ground, naval and air forces. The al Qods trains foreign terrorist organizations, both in Iran and in camps in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, the Sudan and elsewhere.

Counterterrorism officials in France, Germany and Austria have identified the al Qods force as the "strike force" used by Iran to assassinate Iranian dissidents living overseas. The U.S. military has captured al Qods force officers in Iraq, where they have delivered special explosives used in roadside bombs by terrorists against U.S. forces and against Iraqi civilians.

Over the last four months, leaders of the eight foreign terrorist groups have made public visits to Iran, where they have met with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other leaders.

According to the London-based daily, the foreign visitors also met secretly with Iranian intelligence minister Gholahossein Mohseni Ezhei and top aides, who asked them if they were prepared to aid Iran in the event of a U.S. or Israeli attack.

The paper's source said that Iran's Revolutionary Guards force had opened training camps in Iran for fighters of the Shiite Muslim "Mahdi Army" of Iraq, the militia controlled by firebrand Shiite cleric Moqtada al Sadr, and had "increased its financial assistance" to al Sadr to "more than $20 million" per month.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Lebanon's Hezbollah are also receiving large sums of money and fresh weapons, the source said.

Eighty members of Lebanon's Hezbollah movement received terrorist training last year in launching suicide attacks using hang-gliders and small submersibles designed to deliver commando divers or suicide attackers.

Wild Thing's comment.......

I wonder if Murtha and the rest of the lefties give a hoot about this. Probably not, it is just news of their friends discussing how to take Americans hostage and kill us. They have other things to think about like how to trash our troops and how to destroy America from within.

Iran Providing Heavy Weapons To Al-Qaeda In Iraq

Assyrian International News Agency

As noted by the Iraqi daily newspaper az-Zaman, the Iranian government is supplying Iraq's al-Qaeda terror cells with the heavy weapons they have previously lacked including advanced anti-aircraft missiles, explosives and BKC machineguns.

The surface to air missiles are of the Russian Strela type.

The Strela is a heat seeking, self-contained, shoulder fired weapon and similar to the U.S. "Redeye" missile.

Though not having enough range to seriously challenge fast moving jet fighters and bombers, they are however viewed as grave threats when deployed against helicopters which must operate at much lower altitudes.

The newspaper report details that the technology transfer took place after meetings held in Beirut Lebanon between representatives of Iraqi al-Qaeda leader Zarqawi and the Iranian funded terrorist group Hezbollah.

The weapons were provided by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp IRGC.

The United States and Iraqi officials have repeatedly accused Iran's Islamist government of sending agents and arms into Iraq to assist the insurgency.

The IRGC is viewed as a religious defense force which was formed in the first days of the Iranian revolution of 1979 which overthrew the Shah of Iran Reza Pahlavi and brought Ayatollah Khomeini to power.

It is believed that the leadership of the IRGC reports directly to Iran's present day Supreme Leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Holocaust-Style Badges ~ New Law In Iran

Wild Thing's comment........

I am going to post the various articles on this below. There is some question as to this being true or not. I tend to believe it because of the hate for the People of the Book by Islamists. But this is for all of us I suppose to see what is true in fact by the actions taken in Iran. If it IS true we need to come down hard on this asap and not wait till another holocaust to ever happen again.
I do not take things like this lightly, threats and this kind of thing never should be. Perhaps they are doing this to anger Israel and our country to jump the gun so to speak making Iran a victim of our attack. I have no idea, but either way, it is a wait and see for sure.

Iran may force badges on Jews, Christians TEHRAN, May 19 (UPI) -- Iran's parliament passed a new law this week that would force the country's Jews, Christians and other religious minorities to wear color-coded ID badges.

Iranian expatriates confirmed reports the Iranian parliament, or majlis, has approved a law that would require non-Muslims to adhere to a dress code which mandates they wear "standard Islamic garments," according to Canada's National Post.

The roughly 25,000 Jews living in the Islamic Republic would have to attach a yellow strip of cloth to their clothing, Christians would wear red badges and Zoroastrians would wear blue ones.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader and highest authority, must approve the law for it to take effect.

"This is reminiscent of the Holocaust," said Rabbi Marvin Hier, head of the Simon Weisenthal Center in Los Angeles. "Iran is moving closer and closer to the ideology of the Nazis."

The Weisenthal Center has written to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan to call on the international community to pressure Iran into abandoning the measure.

"There's no reason to believe they won't pass this," Hier told the Post. "It will certainly pass unless there's some sort of international outcry over this."

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejan has publicly called for Israel to be "wiped off the map." The West believes Tehran is secretly and illegally using its nuclear energy program to develop a weapon, a claim Iran denies.

Majlis passes bill setting out new dress requirement Iran-Fashion-Majlis bill Majlis deputies here on Sunday approved the outlines of a bill setting out a dress code suitable for Iranian culture and society and a national fashion trend.

When the bill is passed into law, a committee composed of representatives from the ministries of culture, commerce and industries as well as the Management and Plan Organization, Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) and Majlis Cultural Commission is to be created.

The culture ministry and IRIB will have the primary responsbility of promoting the required dress or clothing design as confirmed by the committee and prevent Western-style fashion that are against Islamic teachings.

After the law is passed, the culture ministry, with the help of the ministry of commerce, will hold national, regional and international festivals and exhibitions to promote cultural exchanges, including Islamic fashion, among Muslim nations.

Seasonal fairs will be held by the commerce ministry to introduce as well as promote sales of Islamic dresses and garments to the public.

The national dress plan was approved in Majlis by 137 votes in favor, 45 against, and 11 abstentions.

Iran report of Holocaust-style badges questioned The National Post is sending shockwaves across the country this morning with a report that Iran's Parliament has passed a law requiring mandatory Holocaust style badges to identify Jews and Christians. But independent reporter Meir Javedanfar, an Israeli Middle East expert who was born and raised in Tehran, says the report is false. "It's absolutely factually incorrect," he told The New 940 Montreal. "Nowhere in the law is there any talk of Jews and Christians having to wear different colours. I've checked it with sources both inside Iran and outside." "The Iranian people would never stand for it. The Iranian government wouldn't be stupid enough to do it." Political commentator and 940 Montreal host Beryl Waysman says the report is true, that the law was passed two years ago. "Jews should wear yellow strips, Christians red strips, because according to the Iranian mullahs, if a Mulsim shakes hands with a non-Muslim he becomes unclean."

Iran eyes badges for Jews
(Part of long article)
This is reminiscent of the Holocaust," said Rabbi Marvin Hier, the dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. "Iran is moving closer and closer to the ideology of the Nazis."
Iran's roughly 25,000 Jews would have to sew a yellow strip of cloth on the front of their clothes, while Christians would wear red badges and Zoroastrians would be forced to wear blue cloth.

"There's no reason to believe they won't pass this," said Rabbi Hier. "It will certainly pass unless there's some sort of international outcry over this."

Bernie Farber, the chief executive of the Canadian Jewish Congress, said he was "stunned" by the measure. "We thought this had gone the way of the dodo bird, but clearly in Iran everything old and bad is new again," he said. "It's state-sponsored religious discrimination."

The new law was drafted two years ago, but was stuck in the Iranian parliament until recently when it was revived at the behest of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Update to this post:


From Captain Ed at Captain's Quarters:....Thank you Captain Ed

"In an interesting twist, Canada.com has pulled the original story, although Amir Taheri's article is stil available. If true, this will send shock waves around the world -- and if not, Canada's National Post may never live down the damage."

UPDATE: The National Post appears to be backtracking more intently, if not furiously, this evening:

Several experts are casting doubt on reports that Iran had passed a law requiring the country’s Jews and other religious minorities to wear coloured badges identifying them as non-Muslims.
The Iranian embassy in Otttawa also denied the Iranian government had passed such a law. ...

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre and Iranian expatriates living in Canada had confirmed that the order had been passed, although it still had to be approved by Iran’s “Supreme Guide” Ali Khamenehi before being put into effect.

Hormoz Ghahremani, a spokesman for the Iranian Embassy in Ottawa, said in an e-mail to the Post yesterday that, “We wish to categorically reject the news item.

“These kinds of slanderous accusations are part of a smear campaign against Iran by vested interests, which needs to be denounced at every step.”

Sam Kermanian, of the U.S.-based Iranian-American Jewish Federation, said in an interview from Los Angeles that he had contacted members of the Jewish community in Iran — including the lone Jewish member of the Iranian parliament — and they denied any such measure was in place.

It's not the National Post's finest moment, it seems ...

A Heads UP Regarding Ahmadinijad

Ex-Military Intelligence chief Ze'evi warns of impending world jihad 'tsunami'

Former Military Intelligence chief Aharon Ze'evi

By Amos Harel, Haaretz Correspondent

Former Military Intelligence chief Aharon Ze'evi warned Monday morning of an impending world jihad "tsunami" that he said may soon descend on the entire Middle East.

Ze'evi, speaking at a Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies conference in Tel Aviv University, said that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinijad has been overheard promising the "end of history in two or three years."

Ze'evi recommended that the Iranian threats be taken seriously, saying that Tehran will soon have nuclear warhead compatible surface-to-surface missiles with a range of 5,000 kilometers, putting Europe within striking distance.

Ze'evi also warned that Israel should not rule out the possibility of a conventional war against Islamic militants.

Ze'evi said he foresees this war breaking out on Israel's northern frontier, against Syria and Hezbollah.

Emphasizing the radicalization of Islamic militancy, Ze'evi cited recent changes in the objectives of major militant organizations, which have recently begun targeting sites in Arab countries.

"We are seeing attacks carried out in Amman, Dahab and Sharm el-Sheikh," said Ze'evi.
He cited the increased accessibility of Internet in the Arab world as facilitating the process, saying, "Today, anyone who is interested can learn how to blow up a bomb."

Major General (Res.) Ze'evi stepped down as chief of Military Intelligence about four months ago, and was replaced by Major General Amos Yadlin.

Iran Wanting to Call The Shots ~ White House Says No

White House dismisses calls for direct Iran talks

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Sunday dismissed calls for direct talks with Iran to resolve the stand-off over its nuclear program, saying the United Nations was the best forum for those discussions.

"We think the framework we have is even better, we have a number of countries that are engaged with Iran on this issue, we are supportive of those discussions," White House national security adviser Stephen Hadley told CNN.

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan urged the United States on Friday to enter into direct talks with Tehran, as have others.

But Hadley said the United Nations was the preferred forum for the talks.

"The forum has now shifted to a discussion in the U.N. Security Council where the international community as a whole, of which the United States is a part, can make clear to Iran what it needs to do," he told CNN's "Late Edition. "We think that's the right forum at this time for this issue."

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who sent an 18-page letter to President George W. Bush last week, said over the weekend that he was ready to talk with any country except Israel and not under threat of force.

Bush dismissed the letter, saying it did not addressing the issue of when Iran would abandon its nuclear program, which the West suspects is a cover for building weapons.

Iran says the program is merely for peaceful power generation.

Britain, France and Germany, backed by the United States, Russia and China, are to unveil a package of inducements and penalties for Iran depending on whether it cooperates or resists Western calls that it halt uranium enrichment.

"We are looking at the kinds of sanctions that might be applied if it does not make the right choice. We're also looking at the kinds of benefits that might be applied if Iran does make the right choice," Hadley said.
"There have been a lot of opportunities for Iran to make the right choice, which is respond to the will of the international community and give assurances, by getting out of the enrichment business, that it's not pursuing a nuclear bomb," he said..

Wild Thing's comment.......

I have had it with this freak Ahmadinejad. He sends a long letter, beyond long ....18 pagers, to Bush that basically amounted to a declaration of war.

So far we have had tons of threats made by various leaders in Iran. Besides their ego's needing to have a continuous 15 minutes of fame with their threat making, lies in speeches etc. Ahmadinejad thinks he can boss Bush and the USA around. I am thrilled Bush said NO to the talks right now. Iran should kiss our ass not the other way around.

Caves in Afghanistan to Motown ~ Just Follow the Camel Tracks

In terror war, American 'outreach' has US Muslims wary

By Caroline Drees, Security Correspondent

DEARBORN, Michigan (Reuters) -

When U.S. soldiers raid a cave in Afghanistan, FBI agent William Kowalski knows to expect a call at his office in Detroit.

"When a military raid goes on in Kabul, or in a cave, and they find a computer that contains an address book or names and phone numbers, invariably I'm going to get a call here that says, 'We did a raid and there was this 313 (Detroit-region) area code phone number in it. Check it out,'" Kowalski said.

The Detroit area, and especially the suburb of Dearborn, is home to the largest Arab American community in the United States, potentially fertile ground for U.S. officials looking for information and help to fight the war on terrorism.

Counterterrorism officials are trying to build closer ties to Muslim and Arab Americans through so-called outreach efforts. These include townhall meetings, discussions with community leaders and one-on-one talks with local residents at mosques, schools or cultural events.

Officials hope closer ties will encourage community members -- who are just as eager to live in safety as other Americans -- to tip off authorities to suspicious newcomers or militant activities, allowing agents to foil possible plots before it's too late.

Agents believe immigrant communities may have unique links to conflict areas and can help them distinguish between useful leads and red herrings after incidents such as the raids Kowalski described.

But many Muslim and Arab Americans fear the bridge-building initiative that began after the September 11 attacks means little more than propaganda, recruitment and spying.

"It's not about reaching out to us and including us," said community activist Kenwah Dabaja, whose family emigrated to the United States from Lebanon. "The community is nervous."

Federal, state and local counterterrorism officials say bridging this gap in understanding is key to protecting the country, but efforts are stumbling over deep-seated mistrust and suspicions.

Many Arab and Muslim Americans say they have felt the target of racism and discrimination after the 2001 attacks, and they accuse law enforcement officials of singling them out for scrutiny in the fight against terrorism.

"One thing everybody is taught in this country is that you are innocent until proven guilty, but it seems this is not working with regard to the Muslim community anymore," said Imam Hassan al-Qazwini, the Iraqi-born head of one of the largest U.S. mosques in Dearborn.


One senior U.S. counterterrorism official in Washington acknowledged that "we haven't done enough" to cooperate with Arab and Muslim immigrants against terrorism.

He said the government had to beef up intelligence gathering at home by building trust between officials and Americans of Middle Eastern descent, linking local police more closely into communities and encouraging residents to volunteer information.

Government agencies as well as state and local law enforcement also say they are eager to hire Arab Americans so their workforce better reflects the community.

"Our job is to convince them (community members) that they can trust us so that they can come forward with information that will further our investigations, or points us in the right direction if they see suspicious individuals," said Kowalski, who is the FBI's acting special agent charge in Detroit.

He said the number of Arab Americans was so large in his area that almost every U.S. security investigation at home and abroad touched his community in some way.

Brian Moskowitz, the Detroit-based special agent in charge for the Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said intense outreach efforts to community members since the 2001 attacks -- including monthly sessions with Arab and Muslim American leaders -- had certainly enhanced security cooperation.

"I don't think it (terrorism) is different than any other crime in the sense that you need to have your sources, your ears and eyes as close to the action as possible," he said. "Law enforcement in general terms has gotten information from the community here. They come because they feel they can."


Michael Bouchard, a Detroit area sheriff who is the only Arab American running for the Senate this fall, said law enforcement had begun to take steps to improve security cooperation with the community, "but it takes time. Every time you have a long-standing misunderstanding and distrust, it takes times to break that down."

Several community members -- and even one Washington-based official who spoke on condition of anonymity -- said the authorities were probably not plugged into the communities well enough to know if any extremists were lurking there.

Dearborn activist Dabaja said government "outreach" was a misnomer. "It's not really outreach. To some it's recruiting and propaganda spreading," she said, adding there was a need for genuine closer ties.

Some community members also feared they were under surveillance, especially after the disclosure of domestic wiretapping as part of counterterrorism efforts.

Imam Qazwini praised the regular meetings senior administration and law enforcement officials have held with community leaders such as him, but he said it wasn't enough.

"Outreach means that you treat me equally and respect me like any other U.S. citizen. You don't look at me with a suspicious eye unless you have overwhelming evidence," he said.

Wild Thing's comment......

Well this ticks me off!!!! It seems very simple to me, you raid a cave in Afghanistan and find a computer with address book or names and phone numbers connecting the terrorists to (313) area code in Michigan. OK how hard is that to understand for these freaking Muslims in America. ( insert steam coming out of my nose, ears and eyes with anger and my blood boiling). BUT do the Muslims react innocently HELL NO! Once again they react with the stop picking on me BS. And complain about the outreach to kiss up to them.

Help stop the insanity! Stop giving in to the enemy, stop being diplomatic with them.

Ahmadinejad Wishful Thinking of Unrivaled Power

Ahmadinejad sees nuclear Iran as “unrivalled” power

Tehran, Iran, May 07 – Iran’s radical President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday that the Islamic Republic could fast become an “unrivalled world power” by obtaining nuclear capabilities.

“The Iranian nation has the potential to quickly become an unrivalled world power by obtaining modern technology”, Ahmadinejad told commanders of Iran’s paramilitary Bassij force in Tehran. His comments were reported by the official news agency.
“With only a short time having passed since the announcement that Iran had obtained nuclear technology, regional and global order have quickly changed”, he said, adding that the “enemies” feared a resurgence of “Islamic identity in the Islamic world”.

The Iranian president reiterated his previous comments that Iran would not heed demands by the United Nations Security Council to suspend its uranium enrichment activities.

“They must know that if they want to make unlawful decisions against Iran and issue statements or resolutions, the Iranian nation will thumb its nose at their unjust resolution”, he said, adding that if any limitations were placed on Iran then the countries that had taken such action would suffer “a hundred times worse”.

Ahmadinejad accused international organisations of being pawns in the hands of “several bullying big powers” and hinted that Tehran might withdraw from the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty if the treaty became “discredited”.

He rejected the threat of sanctions on Iran as “meaningless”.

In threatening language, Ahmadinejad warned Iran’s enemies, “Do not make yourselves so hated among nations and do not do things that would bellow up the fire of hatred that the nations of the world harbour against you”.

Iran Threatens Israel If US Acts "evil"

Iran threatens Israel if US acts "evil"

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran threatened on Tuesday to attack Israel in response to any "evil" act by the United States and said it had enriched uranium to a level close to the maximum compatible with civilian use in power stations.

The defiant statements were issued shortly before world powers meet in Paris to discuss the next steps after Tehran rejected a U.N. call to halt uranium enrichment.

Senior officials from the U.N. Security Council's permanent members -- Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States -- plus Germany were to discuss how to curb an Iranian program that Western nations say conceals a drive for atomic warheads.

The United States and Israel have vowed to deny Iran nuclear weapons. Washington has not excluded war if diplomacy fails, while Tehran has sworn to retaliate if attacked.

"We have announced that wherever America does something evil, the first place that we target will be Israel," ISNA quoted a senior Revolutionary Guards commander, Rear Admiral Mohammad-Ebrahim Dehqani, as saying on Tuesday.

Iran's deputy oil minister said there was "some possibility" of a U.S. attack on his country over its nuclear program.

"I am worried. Everybody is worried," Mohammad Hadi Nejad-Hosseinian said in New Delhi after talks on a proposed $7-billion pipeline from Iran to India via Pakistan.

Concerns that Iran's dispute with the West could lead to disruption of its oil output pushed oil prices above $74 a barrel, close to the record of $75.35 touched last month.

The United States, Britain and France are expected to introduce a resolution to the Security Council this week that would legally oblige Iran to comply with U.N. demands. The three countries favor limited sanctions if Tehran remains defiant.

Iran said Russia and China, also veto-wielding permanent council members, would not back any punitive measures.

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran will target Israel first if the United States does anything "evil", a senior commander in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards said on Tuesday.

The United States says it wants Iran's nuclear standoff with the West solved diplomatically but has refused to rule out military action.

"We have announced that wherever America does something evil, the first place that we target will be Israel," Revolutionary Guards Rear Admiral Mohammad-Ebrahim Dehqani was quoted as saying by Iran's student news agency ISNA.

The Islamic Republic has never recognized Israel and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for the Jewish state to be "wiped off the map."

Dehqani said naval wargames held in the Gulf last month "carried the warning to those countries that threaten Iran, including America and the Zionist regime".

Experts said the wargames, in which Iran said it had tested new missiles and torpedoes, were a thinly veiled threat that it could disrupt vital Gulf oil shipping lanes if it was attacked.

Iran Urges U.N. Action Against U.S.

Iran Urges U.N. Action Against U.S.

Iran denounced the United States on Monday for contemplating possible nuclear strikes against Iranian targets and urged the United Nations to take urgent action against what it called a dangerous violation of international law.

In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan obtained by The Associated Press, Iran's U.N. Ambassador Javad Zarif called President Bush's refusal to rule out a U.S. nuclear strike on Iran and a similar follow-up statement by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice "illegal and insolent threats."

Bush was asked on April 18 whether U.S. options regarding Iran "include the possibility of a nuclear strike" if Tehran refuses to halt uranium enrichment. "All options are on the table," the president replied, but he stressed that the United States will continue to focus on diplomacy.

Iran insists it is legally entitled under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty to enrich uranium to provide fuel for civilian power plants but the United States suspects its real aim is to produce nuclear weapons, a view backed by Britain and France.

Zarif said the use of "false pretexts" by senior U.S. officials "to make public and illegal threats of resort to force against the Islamic Republic of Iran is continuing unabated in total contempt of international law and fundamental principles of the United Nations Charter."
The "U.S. aggressive policy" of contemplating the possible use of nuclear weapons also violates the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and other U.S. multilateral agreements, he said.

Zarif's letter made no mention of recent threats by Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to wipe Israel "off the map."

Instead, the Iranian ambassador honed in on statements from U.S. officials, especially from Bush, which he said "defiantly articulate the United States policies and intentions on the resort to nuclear weapons."

Zarif said past U.N. failures to respond "to these illegal and inexcusable threats have emboldened senior United States officials to go further and even consider the use of nuclear weapons as an `option on the table.'"

In a brief statement responding to the letter, U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said "if Iran wants to be treated differently, then Iran should stop pursuing nuclear weapons and give up terrorism."

After lengthy negotiations, the U.N. Security Council adopted a statement a month ago demanding that Iran stop enriching uranium. A new report Friday from the International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N. nuclear watchdog, confirmed what the world already knew: Iran has refused to stop enriching uranium.

The United States, Britain and France immediately announced plans to introduce a new Security Council resolution this week which would make Iran's compliance with their demands mandatory. To intensify pressure, they want the resolution under Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter which means it can be enforced through sanctions or military action.

China and Russia, the two other council members with veto power, oppose sanctions and military action and want the Iran nuclear issue resolved diplomatically, with the IAEA taking the lead, not the Security Council.

Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, reiterated Monday that Tehran was "ready for any kind of negotiation to achieve our rights" and again called for Iran's dispute with the international community to be returned to the IAEA, rather than taken up by the Security Council.

He spoke on the eve of a meeting in Paris of political directors from the six countries that have been trying to find a diplomatic solution to the standoff - Britain, France, Germany, the United States, Russia and China.

Iran’s President Recruits Terror Master


Plot for revenge attacks on West

IRAN’S president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, attended a meeting in Syria earlier this year with one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, according to intelligence experts and a former national security official in Washington. US officials and Israel intelligence sources believe Imad Mugniyeh, the Lebanese commander of Hezbollah’s overseas operations, has taken charge of plotting Iran’s retaliation against western targets should President George W Bush order a strike on Iranian nuclear sites.

Mugniyeh is on the FBI’s “Most Wanted Terrorists” list for his role in a series of high-profile attacks against the West, including the 1985 hijacking of a TWA jet and murder of one of its passengers, a US navy diver.

Now in his mid-forties, Mugniyeh is reported to have travelled with Ahmadinejad in January this year from Tehran to Damascus, where the Iranian president met leaders of Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas.

The meeting has been dubbed a “terror summit” because of the presence of so many groups behind attacks on Israel, which Ahmadinejad has threatened to wipe from the map.

Jane’s Intelligence Review cited “reports in recent weeks” of Mugniyeh’s presence alongside the president.

Michael Ledeen, a Middle East expert and former Pentagon and National Security Council official who wrote that Mugniyeh had “probably” been there, said last week senior American officials had confirmed it.

“It’s hard to identify Mugniyeh because he is said to have changed his face and his fingerprints,” Ledeen said. “But senior government officials have told me I was right. He was there.”

Shortly after the Damascus summit Henry Crumpton, head of counter-terrorism at the state department, singled out the elusive Mugniyeh as a threat. The Iranians, Crumpton said, “have complete command and control of Hezbollah. Imad Mugniyeh works for Tehran. And you can’t talk about Hezbollah and not think about Iran. They really are part and parcel of the same problem.”

Mugniyeh lives in Iran and has evaded capture for more than 20 years, despite a $5m American bounty on his head. Western intelligence reports claim he has many connections to terrorist cells in Europe, Africa, Latin America and the US and he is said to have met Osama Bin Laden.

“When and if the Iranians decide to hit the West in its soft belly, Imad will be the one to act,” a western intelligence source said last week.

Mugniyeh has also been linked to the demolition of the American embassy and marine barracks in Beirut in 1983 and is wanted in Argentina for his role in recruiting the bombers of the Israeli embassy and Jewish centre in Buenos Aires in the early 1990s.

Mugniyeh left Lebanon for Iran in 1994 with his wife and son after an assassination attempt. He is since believed to have played an active role in fomenting trouble in Iraq. Ledeen described him last week as the “spinal column of the terror war against America in Iraq from the beginning”.

According to Robert Baer, a former CIA agent who pursued Mugniyeh in the 1980s, “he is the most dangerous terrorist we have ever faced. Mugniyeh is probably the most intelligent, most capable operative we have ever run across, including the KGB or anybody else.
“He enters by one door, exits by another, changes his cars daily, never makes appointments by telephone — he is never predictable. He is the master terrorist, the grail we have been after since 1983”.

Just more proof of why we should have NO dealings with the Hezbollah.

Iran Buys Surface-to-Surface Missiles ~ Hello Europe

Iran buys surface-to-surface missiles capable of hitting Europe

Israel Defense Forces Intelligence Branch, Major General Amos Yadlin

Iran has purchased surface-to-surface missiles from North Korea with a range of 2,500 kilometers, the head of the Israel Defense Forces Intelligence Branch, Major General Amos Yadlin, said Wednesday.

While Iran already possessed missiles capable of reaching Israel, the new weapons pose a threat for countries in Europe and parts of the Middle East that have now come into Iranian range.

Some of the missiles have already arrived in Iran, Yadlin said in a lecture in memory of Israel's sixth president Haim Herzog, who was also head of the IDF Intelligence Branch. The missiles are known in the West as BM-25s, operate on liquid fuel and are single-stage. The BM-25 was originally manufactured in the Soviet Union, where the first generation, adapted for use by Soviet submarines and able to carry a nuclear warhead, was known as the SSN6. After the Russians retired the missiles from service, they sold them to the North Koreans, who developed them to carry a heavier payload.

With this purchase the Iranians have leap-frogged over their Shihab-4 missile with its range of 2,000 kilometers.

Iran worked for years on the development of the Shihab-3, which has a range of 1,300 kilometers, and conducted numerous tests. They also developed a cone with improved ability to enter the atmosphere, which meant it was more accurate.

The fact that the Shihab-3, when fired from certain areas of Iran, could hit Israel, spurred Israel on in its development of the Arrow missile, which can intercept the Shihab-3.

The Iranians are known to be at the early stages of developing two more long-range missiles. However American intelligence sources say Iran is at an advanced stage of developing a missile that can carry a nuclear warhead.

The United States has informed the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of the details of the Iranian missile program.

North Korea has longer range missiles that have been tested a number of times outside its borders. In one case a missile flew over Japanese airspace during a test.

Iran Threatens To Strike At U.S. Targets If Attacked

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei speaks to workers in Tehran April 26, 2006. REUTERS/IRNA

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran vowed on Wednesday to strike at U.S. interests worldwide if it is attacked by the United States, which is keeping military options open in case diplomacy fails to curb Tehran's nuclear program.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made the threat two days before the U.N. nuclear watchdog reports on whether Iran is meeting Security Council demands to halt uranium enrichment.

Iran says it will not stop enrichment, which it says is purely for civilian purposes and not part of what the United States says is a clandestine effort to make atomic bombs.

"The Americans should know that if they assault Iran their interests will be harmed anywhere in the world that is possible," Khamenei was quoted as saying by state television.
"The Iranian nation will respond to any blow with double the intensity," he said.

Washington, backed by Britain and France, has been pushing for sanctions if, as it expects, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reports that Iran has flouted U.N. demands.

But Russia and China, the U.N. Security Council's other two veto-holding permanent members, oppose any embargo.

The IAEA has said that after three years of investigation it still cannot confirm that Iran's aims are entirely peaceful, although it has found no hard proof of a military program.

Boogeyman Ahmadinejad Says Nope Nada Neaner Neaner


NOTE: look at feet in photo!


Ahmadinejad: Iran will not back down “an iota” on nukes

Tehran, Iran, Apr. 26 –Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic would not back down “an iota” in its nuclear standoff with the West.

“Regarding the Iranian nation’s nuclear rights we are not willing to back down an iota”, Ahmadinejad told reporters at a joint press conference with Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir.

“The [International Atomic Energy] Agency was obliged under the Non-Proliferation Treaty to respect our nuclear rights and assist our country in obtaining peaceful technology”, he said, adding that the UN nuclear agency had “failed” to live up to its obligations.

He warned the West that Tehran would ignore “incorrect decisions” being imposed on it by the IAEA and the United Nations Security Council.

“An unjust decision by the international community on Iran’s nuclear program has no legitimacy for Iran even if it comes through the Security Council or other international organisations”, the hard-line President said.

The West was carrying out a psychological war against Iran to gain concessions, he added.

In March, the Security Council adopted a “Presidential Statement” unanimously giving Iran until April 28 to suspend all of its uranium enrichment activities and resume its cooperation with the UN nuclear watchdog.

Iran Says Nuclear Work Is “irreversible”

Tehran, Iran, Apr. 23 – Iran declared on Sunday that it would ignore demands by the United Nations Security Council to freeze its uranium enrichment activities, saying that its sensitive nuclear work was “irreversible”.

“Iran’s uranium enrichment activities are irreversible”, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi told reporters during his weekly press conference.
“Suspension of nuclear research and development activities by the Islamic Republic of Iran is more an issue for the press”, Asefi said.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran will not forego its rights, which must be recognised”, he added.

Commenting on whether Iran would accept a Russian proposal aimed at breaking the international deadlock, he said that Iran would not abandon its right to enrich uranium on its own soil.

On Saturday, Iran's ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency said that Iran had a “basic agreement” with Russia to enrich uranium on Russian soil, but added that details had yet to be worked out.

Moscow has proposed a deal whereby Iran would enrich uranium exclusively on Russian soil. Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman clarified on Sunday that Tehran would not be willing to abandon uranium enrichment on Iranian soil.

“The issue of suspension is not on our agenda”, Asefi said.

The Security Council adopted a “Presidential Statement” unanimously on March 29 giving Iran 30 days to suspend all of its uranium enrichment activities and resume its cooperation with the UN nuclear watchdog.

Iran Suspends Renault Car Project

TEHRAN, April 18 (Reuters) - Iran has suspended a joint venture project to produce the L90 or Logan car with French automaker Renault in the Islamic republic, a government official said on Tuesday.

Analysts said the move would be a further blow to foreign investment in Iran, seen as crucial for creating jobs for the country's young population. It also comes at a time of increasing international tension over Iran's nuclear programme.

A dispute over exports of the no frills car appears to be at the heart of the dispute.

"Iran's industry and mines minister has ordered the suspension of the L90 project until Renault company considers this ministry's views regarding the project," said Mohammad Karimi, a spokesman for the ministry.

An official for the L90 project in Iran said that Renault had accepted that 60 percent of the car should be built inside Iran, the car's platform could be used to build other models and that the L90 would not enjoy a monopoly in its class of car in Iran.

But he said: "the main problem remains where Iran wants to have a share of this company's (Logan) exports".

Renault has said it had set up a joint venture with an Iranian partner to produce the L90 in Iran from 2006. The L90 is better known as the "Logan", a car that Renault already produces in Romania.

"It is a very bad sign to the world community. It shows they can't trust us again," Leylaz said, adding that it will also have a major impact on the local car parts industry.

He said that the joint venture company had signed contracts worth about $800 million with local firms to supply parts. These contracts were now being threatened, he added.

Leylaz pointed to a previous dispute in which Iran threw out a Turkish operator of a project to run a new Iranian airport, saying it had already damaged Iran's international commercial reputation.

"In this case, we are losing our internal reputation because hundreds of suppliers are involved in this project," he said.

Iran has identified U.S., Israel “weak points


Tehran, Iran, Apr. 17 – Iran’s military has “fully identified the weak points of the United States and Israel” and has already determined how to deal with the U.S. if it attacked the oil-rich nation, a top military commander said on Monday.

“If there is a war, the enemy will not be able to escape from our forces”, Brigadier General Seyyed Abdol-Rahim Moussavi, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff of the armed forces, told the state-run news agency Fars.

The general said the army would put on display “new military hardware” at a parade by the armed forces on Tuesday.

“Some of the new military hardware which can be made public will be put on display during tomorrow’s parade”, he said, without further elaboration.

If Iran was attacked, Moussavi said,:

“The enemies will face types of weapons which they would have never been able to imagine”.

Hamas Gets $50 M Boost From Iran

Iran on Sunday said it would give the Palestinian Authority $50 million in aid, moving in as the United States and Europe have withheld funding to the Hamas-led government.

Israel, the United States and the European Union require Hamas, which they consider a terrorist organization, to renounce violence and recognize the Jewish state to obtain funding.

But Hamas' political leader Khaled Mashaal reiterated the group's refusal to meet those demands, saying Saturday in Tehran that his government would "never recognize Israel."

Wild Thing's comment......

Let's see who else is helping out Hamas:

Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have pledged $80m in aid to the Hamas-led Palestinian government, finance minister Omar Abdelrazek said yesterday.

“We have received pledges from the Arab world that will help us operate for several months,” the minister said on the website of Hamas. “In all, $20m from Saudi Arabia, $40m from Kuwait and $20m from the UAE are to be transferred,” he said. “We will not collapse despite the war being waged against us by the racist Zionists, by the United States and the European Union,” he said.

Russia has also pledged aid to Hamas. Russia, breaking with a US-led boycott campaign, promised on Saturday, April 15, to offer aid to the cash-strapped Palestinian Authority, which appealed to Arab countries to honor their aid pledges.

Washington has also barred American citizens and organizations from business dealings with the PA.

Former US president Jimmy Carter cautioned on February 20, the United States and Israel against punishing the Palestinian people for electing the resistance group.

Iran suicide bombers ‘ready to hit Britain’

IRAN has formed battalions of suicide bombers to strike at British and American targets if the nation’s nuclear sites are attacked. According to Iranian officials, 40,000 trained suicide bombers are ready for action.

The main force, named the Special Unit of Martyr Seekers in the Revolutionary Guards, was first seen last month when members marched in a military parade, dressed in olive-green uniforms with explosive packs around their waists and detonators held high.

Dr Hassan Abbasi, head of the Centre for Doctrinal Strategic Studies in the Revolutionary Guards, said in a speech that 29 western targets had been identified:

“We are ready to attack American and British sensitive points if they attack Iran’s nuclear facilities.” He added that some of them were “quite close” to the Iranian border in Iraq.

In a tape recording heard by The Sunday Times, Abbasi warned the would-be martyrs to “pay close attention to wily England” and vowed that “Britain’s demise is on our agenda”.

At a recruiting station in Tehran recently, volunteers for the force had to show their birth certificates, give proof of their address and tick a box stating whether they would prefer to attack American targets in Iraq or Israeli targets.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned last Friday that Israel was heading towards “annihilation”. He was speaking at a Tehran conference on Palestinian rights aimed at promoting Iran as a new Middle Eastern superpower.

According to western intelligence documents leaked to The Sunday Times, the Revolutionary Guards are in charge of a secret nuclear weapons programme designed to evade the scrutiny of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

One of the leaked reports, dating from February this year, confirms that President George W Bush is preparing to strike Iran. “If the problem is not resolved in some way, he intends to act before leaving office because it would be ‘unfair’ to leave the task of destroying Iran’s nuclear facilities to a new president,” the document says.

Alireza Jafarzadeh, a former spokesman for National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), an opposition group, said a secret, parallel military programme was under way. According to sources inside Iran, the Revolutionary Guards were constructing underground sites that could be activated if Iran’s known nuclear facilities were destroyed.

The NCRI is the political wing of the Mujaheddin-e-Khalq, which is deemed a terrorist organisation in Britain and America. However, much of its information is considered to be “absolutely credible” by western intelligence sources after Jafarzadeh revealed the existence of the Natanz plant in 2002.

Within the past year, 14 large and several smaller projects have been created, according to Jafarzadeh. Several are designed to be nuclear factories; others are for the storage of weapons, he claimed.

Wild Thing's comment.....

The government in Iran needs its ass kicked hard. 40,000 trained suicide bombers? Good grief! Their rhetoric is on overkill!

Hey all you Revolutionary Guard Guys, most of us Amuricans hang out at a place in New York called the United Nations. But, please don't bomb that, we use that as a place to make our films about your culture being bad and we use that as a place to plan wars against your country. We'd be really unhappy if you bombed our United Nations headquarters in New York City.

"Stinky" Ahmadinejad

Iran prez arrests 4 over text message

Fires head of phone company, sues over claim he doesn't wash

Hey how about maybe get this stenciled onto a missile headed his way.- Wild Thing

Story here

When Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad got an anonymous text message suggesting he didn't wash enough, he did not take it lying down.

He fired the president of the phone company, had four people arrested, took other legal action and accused those involve of conspiring with the Israeli foreign intelligence service Mossad, according to the Iranian opposition website Rooz Online. .....( you can click at the top of their page on the left to read it in English)

The website says Ahmadinejad, known throughout the world as a hard-liner who has threatened Israel with destruction and questioned the Holocaust, is the target of many barbs among the populace in his country.

But the mullah regime doesn't show much of a sense of humor. Of particular concern are jokes comparing Iran's nuclear ambitions with sex. Several people have reportedly received court summonses for sending nuclear-related jokes, according to the website.

Tehran has taken a tough stance against opposition on the Internet. Many of the nation's estimated 70,000 to 100,000 bloggers have faced harassment or imprisonment. The regime has acknowledged monitoring text message traffic.

Iran Issues Stark Military Warning to United States

Iran said it could defeat any American military action over its controversial nuclear drive, in one of the Islamic regime's boldest challenges yet to the United States.


"You can start a war but it won't be you who finishes it," said General Yahya Rahim Safavi, the head of the Revolutionary Guards and among the regime's most powerful figures.
"The Americans know better than anyone that their troops in the region and in Iraq are vulnerable. I would advise them not to commit such a strategic error," he told reporters on the sidelines of a pro-Palestinian conference in Tehran.

The United States accuses Iran of using an atomic energy drive as a mask for weapons development. Last weekend US news reports said President George W. Bush's administration was refining plans for preventive strikes on Iran's nuclear facilities.

"I would advise them to first get out of their quagmire in Iraq before getting into an even bigger one," General Safavi said with a grin.
"We have American forces in the region under total surveillance. For the past two years, we have been ready for any scenario, whether sanctions or an attack."

Iran announced this week it had successfully enriched uranium to make nuclear fuel, despite a UN Security Council demand for the sensitive work to be halted by April 28.

The Islamic regime says it only wants to generate atomic energy, but enrichment can be extended to make the fissile core of a nuclear warhead -- something the United States is convinced that "axis of evil" member Iran wants to acquire.

At a Friday prayer sermon in Tehran, senior cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Janati simply branded the US as a "decaying power" lacking the "stamina" to block Iran's ambitions.

And hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told AFP that a US push for tough United Nations sanctions was of "no importance."

"She is free to say whatever she wants," the president replied when asked to respond to comments by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice highlighting part of the UN charter that provides for sanctions backed up by the threat of military action.
"We give no importance to her comments," he said with a broad smile.

On Thursday, Rice said that faced with Iran's intransigence, the United States "will look at the full range of options available to the United Nations."

"There is no doubt that Iran continues to defy the will of the international community," Rice said, after Iran also dismissed a personal appeal from the UN atomic watchdog chief Mohamed ElBaradei.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief must give a report at the end of April on Iranian compliance with the Security Council demand. In Tehran he said that after three years of investigations Iran's activities were "still hazy and not very clear."

Although the United States has been prodding the council to take a tough stand against the Islamic republic, including possible sanctions, it has run into opposition from veto-wielding members Russia and China.

Representatives of the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany are to meet in Moscow Tuesday to discuss the crisis.

In seeking to deter international action, Iran has been playing up its oil wealth, its military might in strategic Gulf waters and its influence across the region -- such as in Iraq, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories.

At the Tehran conference, Iran continued to thumb its nose at the United States and Israel.

"The Zionist regime is an injustice and by its very nature a permanent threat," Ahmadinejad told the gathering of regime officials, visiting Palestinian militant leaders and foreign sympathizers.
"Whether you like it or not, the Zionist regime is on the road to being eliminated," said Ahmadinejad, whose regime does not recognise Israel and who drew international condemnation last year when he said Israel should be "wiped off the map."

Unfazed by his critics, the hardliner went on to repeat his controversial stance on the Holocaust.

"If there is serious doubt over the Holocaust, there is no doubt over the catastrophe and Holocaust being faced by the Palestinians," said the president, who had previously dismissed as a "myth" the killing of an estimated six million Jews by the Nazis and their allies during World War II.

"I tell the governments who support Zionism to ... let the migrants (Jews) return to their countries of origin. If you think you owe them something, give them some of your land," he said.

Iran's turbaned supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, also accused the United States of seeking to place the entire region under Israeli control.

"The plots by the American government against Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon aimed at governing the Middle East with the control of the Zionist regime will not succeed," Khamenei said.

There was no immediate reaction from Washington, but French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy severely condemned Ahmadinejad for his latest remarks on Israel.

"As I have had occasion to do before, when the Iranian president made similar statements, I condemn these inacceptable remarks in the strongest possible terms," Douste-Blazy said in a statement.

"Israel's right to exist and the reality of the Holocaust should not be disputed," he added.

Iran President Says We Can Take Our Desires To The Grave


Iran President: Enemies can take their desires “to the grave”

Tehran, Iran, Apr. 10 – Hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Monday that the Islamic Republic’s enemies will take their “desire to harm the Iranian nation” and stop it from pursuing its nuclear ambitions “to the grave”.

“Our enemies will take their desire to harm and stop the Iranian nation to the grave”, Ahmadinejad said at a rally in the north-western town of Fariman. The official news agency carried his comments.

“This nation is determined to continue the path of advancement. The enemies can never create a gap in its determination by creating commotion”, he said.

“For as long as be stand firm, no power can harm the Iranian nation in the slightest way”.

He added that Iran’s “enemies” would fail in their “psychological warfare” against Iran.


Wild Thing's comment......

Screw you Ahmadinejad! Nakba to you and your other Goat fucking pigsuckers! Allah FUBAR!

Now get this and get it straight! America is the most powerful country in the entire world! Our military is also the most powerful in the world. Push our buttons and you will regret the day you took your first breath. Your death cult of Islam worships death. Well ass wipe we will get you there when WE want to and not a moment sooner.

You say your enemies ( Israel and America) can take our desires to the grave. YOU aren't even going to be able to be put in a grave, there will be nothing left of you but dust, got that? Own it !

Nakba is a word that followers of Islam hate more then any other word. If you are on a forum and Muslims are present and you use this word, most of the time they will immediately leave. The word is Nakba. The word Nakba is Arabic for “the Catastrophe,” and it refers to the creation of the state of Israel. The Palestinian rallies mournfully commemorate the day Israel was created. They call it "Al Nakba".

Iran Has Enriched Uranium for the First Time

Vice President Gholamreza Aghazadeh, Iran's nuclear chief, right, examines uranium hexaflouride, or UF6 as he and others open a suitcase in Mashhad, Iran's holiest city, Tuesday, April, 11, 2006. Iran has successfully enriched uranium for the first time, a landmark in its quest to develop nuclear fuel, hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday, although he insisted his country does not aim to develop atomic weapons. (AP Photo/Mehr News Agency)

Ahamad Alavi, head of the Astan Qods Razavi museum, holds a sample of enriched uranium during a ceremony to mark Iran's successful production of enriched uranium in Mashad, 924 km (574 miles) east of Tehran April 11, 2006.

TEHRAN, Iran - Former Iranian President Hashemi Rafsanjani said Tuesday that Iran has enriched uranium using 164 centrifuges, a major development in nuclear fuel cycle technology, news agencies reported.

Rafsanjani made the comment to the Kuwait News Agency during an interview in Tehran.

"Iran has put into operation the first unit of 164 centrifuges, has injected (uranium gas) and reached industrial production," the Kuwait News Agency quoted Rafsanjani as saying.

Iranian authorities had promised to announce "good nuclear news" on Tuesday.

Article HERE

The announcement from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was certain to heighten international tensions surrounding Iran's nuclear program. The U.N. Security Council has demanded that Iran stop all enrichment by April 28 because of suspicions the program is designed to make nuclear weapons.

Ahmadinejad warned the West that trying to force it to abandon uranium enrichment would "cause an everlasting hatred in the hearts of Iranians."
The White House, which is pressing for U.N. sanctions against Iran, said the enrichment claims "show that Iran is moving in the wrong direction."

"Defiant statements and actions only further isolate the regime from the rest of the world," said White House spokesman Scott McClellan.

Uranium enrichment can produce either fuel for a nuclear energy reactor — as Iran says it seeks — or the material needed for an atomic warhead.

Ahmadinejad announced it at a nationally televised ceremony clearly aimed at drumming up popular Iranian support for the nuclear program. He addressed an audience that included top military commanders and clerics in an ornate hall in one of Iran's holiest cities, Mashhad. Before he spoke, screens on the stage showed footage of nuclear facilities and scientists at work.

"At this historic moment, with the blessings of God Almighty and the efforts made by our scientists, I declare here that the laboratory-scale nuclear fuel cycle has been completed and young scientists produced enriched uranium needed to the degree for nuclear power plants Sunday," Ahmadinejad said.
"I formally declare that Iran has joined the club of nuclear countries," he said. The crowd broke into cheers of "Allahu akbar," or "God is great."

Jerusalem (CNSNews.com) - Israel warned the international community on Tuesday not to delay in dealing with Iran after the Islamic republic announced that it had enriched uranium for the first time. The U.S. said Iran was moving in the "wrong direction."

Israel said the announcements on Tuesday should prove the "true nature" of the Iranian program and spark concerns about the timeline.

" Iran's announcement serves as a further example of the real danger in delaying concrete diplomatic measures in the face of the continuing Iranian refusal to comply with international demands to stop its nuclear activities," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev.
"Israel believes that the Iranian nuclear program should be confronted by a broad and determined international coalition," Regev said.

If and when we do attack Iran, can we send jimmah catah over there first for a pow-wow, and them attack them!

I have read that some have warned that bombing Iran could provoke "a chain reaction" of attacks on American facilities and citizens throughout the world and might also reignite Hezbollah.

Let's see..........

Door Number One: "A chain reaction of attacks on American facilities and citizens throughout the world"

Door Number Two: An Iran capable of killing millions with nuclear tipped missiles

I'll take my chances with Door Number One.

The wishy loser types ALWAYS, ALWAYS worry about the 'bad guys' getting mad and what they'll do to us. Winners make the bad guys WORRY about what's happening to them.

The Rise Of The Islamist Axis ~ We Are At War With Islam

From the Jerusalem Post

On Monday, Russia's Novaya Gazeta newspaper reported that part of Ukraine's Soviet-era nuclear arsenal may well have found its way to Iran. With the breakup of the Soviet Union, the Ukrainians agreed to transfer the Soviet nuclear arsenal that remained in Ukraine after its independence to Russia. According to Novaya Gazeta, some 250 nuclear warheads never made it to Russia and are thought to have been sent to Iran instead. The report further noted that the warheads will remain operational until 2010.

Responding to the report, Gen. Yuri Baluyevsky, Russia's deputy defense minister and the chief of General Staff, said, "Russia's General Staff has no information about whether Ukraine has given 250 nuclear warheads to Iran or not."

It is impossible to assess the accuracy of the report. The Ukrainian government has dismissed its allegations. Russia may well have invented the story to shift media attention away from the growing awareness that Russian support for Teheran, Damascus and Hamas effectively places it in the enemy camp in the US-led war against global jihad.

But whether this particular report is true or false, there is no doubt that the danger to Israel and the rest of the Western world emanating from Iran and its allies is growing by the day.

In recent testimony before the US Congress, John Negroponte, director of National Intelligence, said that the danger that Teheran "will acquire a nuclear weapon and the ability to integrate it with ballistic missiles that Iran already possesses" is a cause "for immediate concern."

EVEN IF both Negroponte's testimony and the council's report are perceived by some as alarmist, this week Iran itself continued to make every effort to convince the world that assessments like these are grossly understated.

Iran conducted an enormous naval exercise called "Great Prophet" in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman. Almost every day of the exercise Iranian forces demonstrated new radar-evading ballistic missile systems. While Western defense establishments have had tepid responses to Iran's show of force, the regime built on its provocations Wednesday when the supreme commander of its Revolutionary Guards, Maj.-Gen. Yahya Rahim Safavi, issued a thinly veiled threat to close the Straits of Hormuz - the narrow waterway through which 40 percent of the world's oil passes.

While President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's poisonous and apocalyptic rhetoric has caused the Western world to step away from him, Teheran is far from isolated. To the contrary, today it perceives itself and is perceived by others as the leader of a regional Islamist axis.

In February Canada's Globe and Mail published a report in which Hussein Hajj Hassan, a Hizbullah member of the Lebanese parliament, declared that on January 20 the Islamist axis was formally cemented in Damascus.

The parley which brought about the entente was led by Ahmadinejad and attended by axis members:

~ Syrian President Bashar Assad,
~Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah,
~Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal,
~Islamic Jihad chief Ramadan Abdullah Shalah
~and the commanders of PLO breakaway front groups.
~Iraqi Shi'ite terror chief Muqtada al-Sadr also pledged his allegiance to the axis.

The jihad summit took place five days before the Palestinian elections and on the same day a suicide bomb exploded in Tel Aviv.

Wild Thing's comment.........
My prayer is we have and keep a strong loyal bond between the US and Israel and NEVER allow the likes of the Clintons and Carter etc. to be in office again or America and Israel will be doomed. I am a postive person, a big time the glass is half full type, but when it comes to evil/ terrorists/ lefties reality is what it is and no fluff can lighten up the dangers that are being created by followers of Islam and those aiding the enemy.

Also in February...article HERE , Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Gillerman, warned of a new “terror axis” of Iran, Syria and Hamas, which could kick start “the first world war of the 21st century.”

“Imagine al-Qaeda or the PKK running in elections? A dictator’s democracy is a dangerous false impression,” Gillerman told the Council.

Gillerman warned of Hamas’ venture in politics, saying “the world is witnessing a new alliance between Iran, Syria and Hamas, which constitutes an axis of terror.”

But You See Iran Said They ONLY Wanted These For Peaceful Purposes

Iran Has Missiles To Carry Nuclear Warheads

By Con Coughlin
(Filed: 07/04/2006)

Iran has successfully developed ballistic missiles with the capability to carry nuclear warheads.

Detailed analysis of recent test firings of the Shahab-3 ballistic missile by military experts has concluded that Iran has been able to modify the nose cone to carry a basic nuclear bomb. The discovery will intensify international pressure on Teheran to provide a comprehensive breakdown of its nuclear research programme.

An Iranian Shahab-3 missile on parade in Teheran

Last week, the United Nations Security Council gave Iran 30 days to freeze its uranium enrichment programme that many experts believe is part of a clandestine attempt to produce nuclear weapons.

Iran denies it is trying to acquire a nuclear arsenal. But ballistic missile experts advising the United States say it has succeeded in reconfiguring the Shahab-3 to carry nuclear weapons.

The Shahab-3 is a modified version of North Korea's Nodong missile which itself is based on the old Soviet-made Scud.

The Nodong, which Iran secretly acquired from North Korea in the mid-1990s, is designed to carry a conventional warhead. But Iranian engineers have been working for several years to adapt the Shahab-3 to carry nuclear weapons.

"This is a major breakthrough for the Iranians," said a senior US official. "They have been trying to do this for years and now they have succeeded. It is a very disturbing development."

The Shahab 3 has a range of 800 miles, enabling it to hit a wide range of targets throughout the Middle East - including Israel.

Apart from modifying the nose cone, Iranian technicians are also trying to make a number of technical adjustments that will enable the missile to travel a greater distance.

Western intelligence officials believe that Iran is receiving assistance from teams of Russian and Chinese experts with experience of developing nuclear weapons. Experts who have studied the latest version of the Shahab have identified modifications to the nose cone.

Instead of the single cone normally attached to this type of missile, the new Shahab has three cones, or a triconic, warhead. A triconic warhead allows the missile to accommodate a nuclear device and this type of warhead is normally found only in nuclear weapons.

According to the new research, the Iranian warhead is designed to carry a spherical nuclear weapon that would be detonated 2,000 feet above the ground, similar to the Hiroshima bomb.

Although US defence officials believe that Iran is several years away from acquiring nuclear weapons, they point out that the warhead could hold a version of the nuclear bomb Pakistan is known to have developed. Iran has acquired a detailed breakdown of Pakistan's nuclear weapons.

The development of the Shahab-3 is just one element of a wide-ranging missile development programme.

In 2003 the Iranians concluded another secret deal with North Korea to buy the Taepo Dong 2 missile, which has a range of 2,200 miles and would enable Iran to hit targets in mainland Europe.

Earlier this week the Iranians announced that they had successfully test-fired a new missile, the Fajr-3, which has the capability to evade radar systems and carry multiple warheads.

Wild Thing's comment........

There is information on the Shahab-1 thru Shahab-6 and IRIS info HERE

With the help of the Chinese and Russian's I wonder how long it would take to turn the Shahab-6 into a true ICBM. If they can do that they can threaten New York and Washington D.C. as well as Paris and Berlin.

Iranian-made Torpedo The Fastest? Hmmmm Propaganda Iranian Style


VIDEO from Fox News.....just click on the speed you use in the large screen in upper left corner.

announced its second major new missile test within days, saying Sunday it has successfully fired a high-speed torpedo capable of destroying huge warships and submarines.

The tests came during war games that Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards have been holding in the Gulf and the Arabian Sea since Friday at a time of increased tensions with the United States over Tehran's nuclear program.

The Iranian-made torpedo — called the "Hoot," or "whale" — has a speed of 223 miles per hour, said Gen. Ali Fadavi, deputy head of the Revolutionary Guards' Navy.

That would make it about three or four times faster than a normal torpedo and as fast as the world's known fastest, the Russian-made VA-111 Shkval, developed in 1995. It was not immediately known if the Hoot was based on the Shkval.

"It has a very powerful warhead designed to hit big submarines. Even if enemy warship sensors identify the missile, no warship can escape from this missile because of its high speed," Fadavi told state-run television.

It was not immediately clear whether the torpedo can carry a nuclear warhead.

More than 17,000 Revolutionary Guards forces are taking part in the weeklong maneuvers. On Sunday, paratroops practiced a drop in an attack on a mock enemy position, and warships, jet fighters, helicopters and sophisticated electronic equipment were used in other exercises.

Iran, which views the United States as an arch foe and is concerned about the U.S. military presence in neighboring Iraq and Afghanistan, says the maneuvers aim to develop the Guards' defensive capabilities.

Iran ~ Come for the decapitations--stay for the stonings

You TOO can walk the streets of Iran with the terrorists, sit at an outdoor cafe and sip espresso and listen in and they plan their fatwa's.

Iran's mullahs signed a huge agreement with BBC

Iran will soon present its tourist attractions in a publicity campaign to be waged in the international and local television networks, said an official of Iran Cultural Heritage and Tourism Foundation (ICHTF) in Madrid Wednesday.

"The publicity campaign will be in the form of advertisements introducing cultural, historical and development attractions of Iran," said Deputy Head of ICHTF for Cultural and Communication Affairs Alireza Sajjadpour.

Talking to IRNA, he referred to BBC, CNN, Germany's ZDF, al-Jazeera and al-Arabia as the international TV networks selected for introducing the tourist sites.

"We have signed a huge agreement with BBC," he added. He, however, declined to cite the contracts' details.

Over 70 countries have been chosen as targets for launching activities to attract tourists to Iran, he said. The campaign will also include several local networks in these countries, Sajjadpour added.

In addition, two-week visas will be issued at all the major national airports for foreign tourists, which are extendable to one-month, he said.

"Furthermore, foreign companies which bring tourists into the country are eligible for some form of payments."

The official expressed hope Iran would turn into one of the 10 most attractive countries in the world in terms of natural tourist attractions and cultural sites through policies to be devised and envisaged within two five-year development plans. This will lead to an annual growth rate of 30 percent in tourist attraction.

Iran is not only a nation with rich historical and cultural sites, but also it has unique environment and nature, in which, four seasons of the year could be observed, he added.

Wild Thing's comment......

Independent Iranian TV channel highlights Threat to American cities

The newly formed Iran Freedom Foundation (IFF) has launched two television commercials warning that American cities are vulnerable to attack by an improvised nuclear device detonated by Iranian-backed terrorists.

The only technical problems that have kept terrorists and terrorists nations like Iran from exploding improvised nuclear devices within American cities are solved once a terrorist regime like the Islamic Republic of Iran has the capability to manufacture a nuclear weapon and deliver it in containers to a major U.S. port.

The commercials currently are not scheduled for broadcast. The IFF hopes the availability for free viewing over the Internet will generate sufficient donations to begin buying air time.

The IFF, established in January, is headquartered in Washington, D.C., as a 501(c)(3) foundation with the ability to accept donations on a favorable tax basis once the IRS issues a tax status determination.

The IFF commercials also contain a clip of Sen. John Kerry's statement in the first debate of the 2005 presidential campaign, favoring the United States giving nuclear fuel to Iran for peaceful purposes.

In a book relevant to this subject titles "Atomic Iran: How the Terrorist Regime Bought the Bomb and American Politicians," by Jerome R. Corsi, throws more light on the situation.

Corsi believes an atomic 9-11 is an imminent threat once a terrorist state like Iran has the capability to develop nuclear weapons.

He says "I wrote 'Atomic Iran' and founded the Iran Freedom Foundation to warn America of the approaching danger, in the hope that the catastrophes described in the book can be avoided if we are alerted in advance to the threat".

In "Atomic Iran," Corsi criticizes four Democratic senators – Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Joseph Biden and Hillary Clinton – for accepting campaign donations from the pro-mullah lobby in the U.S.

Wild Thing's comment.....
This is WHY IMO it is sooooo dangerous for treasonous, traitors like Kerry and others to say the things they say. It's does not stop with a comment from them but it USED by the enemy. Just as it was used by Hanoi Jane etc.

National Security Strategy of U.S.

Iran's Madman Ahmadinejad

London, Mar. 17 – Not since the collapse of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics has the United States national security strategy focused on a country more than it is now doing on Iran. The proof comes in a 49-page report just released by the White House.

“The National Security Strategy of the United States of America” describes Iran as the greatest challenge to the U.S. national security, and makes it clear that the Bush administration is prepared to resort to military action, if that’s what it takes to stop Iran’s theocracy from arming itself with nuclear weapons.

“We may face no greater challenge from a single country than from Iran”, the report, which carried the seal of U.S. President George W. Bush, said.

The document, which maps out the threats to the United States and the way President Bush intends to tackle them, said that the international standoff over Tehran’s suspected nuclear weapons program and its support for terrorism in the Middle East could ultimately be resolved “only if the Iranian regime makes the strategic decision to change these policies, open up its political system, and afford freedom to its people. This is the ultimate goal of U.S. policy”.

“Our strategy is to block the threats posed by the regime while expanding our engagement and outreach to the people the regime is oppressing”, Bush said.

Iran’s Ahmadinejad: West opposes our nukes to let Israel live on

Tehran, Iran, Mar. 15 – Iran’s radical President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday that the circumstances were ripe for the “collapse of the Zionist regime” and that the West was highlighting the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program in the world arena in order to “divert attention away from the issue of Palestine”.

“The regime occupying Qods (Jerusalem) was set up to create insecurity and confrontation in our region. If one day tranquillity came about, it would mean the death of this regime”, Ahmadinejad said in the northern town of Ramyan during a speech broadcast live on state television.

“Our enemies on the one hand oppose our nation’s acquisition of nuclear energy and on the other hand want to divert the attention of other nations from the key issue of Palestine to give an opportunity to the Zionist regime to prolong its existence”, he said.

Iranian Students Burning Posters Of Khamenei


Iran’s Khamenei attacks Bush, rules out “any retreat” on nukes

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told the country's foreign minister and diplomats on Tuesday that any retreat on the nuclear issue would “break” the Islamic Republic’s independence and would entail “a huge cost” for the Iranian people.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that any retreat over the nuclear issue, which is the great demand of the nation and the natural right of our people, as breaking the country's independence, and this would entail a huge cost for the Iranian nation”, the official news agency IRNA quoted Ayatollah Khamenei as telling members of Iran’s diplomatic service.

“Any retreat will, under the present circumstances, bring with it an unending chain of pressures and more retreats. It is therefore clear that this path is irreversible and our foreign policy establishment must courageously defend this right”, Khamenei said.

Iran’s Supreme Leader reacted sharply to recent remarks by U.S. President George W. Bush, who expressed support for Iranians who seek to bring democracy to their country.

“If there a place with no democracy, it’s America”, the ayatollah said. “A small minority of capitalists, who are mainly Zionist, pull all the strings in elections and the people’s vote has no impact”.

“This Mr. George W. Bush himself has been elected through fraud”, Khamenei said, while attacking Bush for “his illegal acts, including his orders for tapping the telephone conversations of Americans, his weak standing in the opinion polls in America, and the censorship of news in that country”.

Khamenei repeated the charge that “there are indications and intelligence showing that the intelligence services of America and the Zionist regime are behind the assassinations and bombings in Iraq”.

“As for America and some of the countries that tow the American line, their principal motive in trying to prevent Iran’s acquisition of its natural and scientific right is that they are frightened that Iran would reach the pinnacle of scientific power”, he added.

Khamenei’s comments once again backed those of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has repeatedly vowed to reject international pressure to accept the demands of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

In the meeting with Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, senior Foreign Ministry officials, and members of the country’s diplomatic service, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “Those who represent the Islamic Republic of Iran abroad must ensure that our national rights are safeguarded and that they truly embody the steadfastness, dignity, and wisdom of the Iranian nation”.

“The fact that the Muslim world is now feeling a sense of identity and Islamic dignity is attributable to the victory of the Islamic revolution, and one of the most important elements of Iran’s national power. This must be emphatically noted in Iran’s international relations”, the ayatollah said.

Khamenei ridiculed “those who make propaganda and say that Iran was hiding [its nuclear project], because no country declares its scientific work while it’s at the research stage”.

In August 2002, the Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran exposed, for the first time, key nuclear sites that Iran had built secretly in Natanz and Arak. The revelation led to the international scrutiny that finally culminated in Iran’s nuclear dossier being sent to the UN Security Council for a decision.

Iran’s Supreme Leader said Western governments “were put to shame by remaining silent when the Zionist regime threatened to assassinate the head of the elected government of the Palestinian people”.

Knowledgeable sources in Tehran said the government has summoned its ambassadors and envoys from across the world to brief them on a fresh diplomatic offensive to “counter the poisonous Western propaganda” against Iran.

Students, security forces clash in Iran capital

Tehran, Iran, Mar. 14 – Police fired tear-gas and used force on Monday to disperse protesting students at Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, eye-witnesses reported.

The disturbances broke out after hundreds of students tried to prevent the burial of three “unidentified martyrs” on the university campus. The students, many of them women, carried placards against the takeover of universities by Islamist groups affiliated to the Revolutionary Guards.

Martial law imposed in volatile Iran cities

Iranian authorities have imposed a de facto martial law in several volatile cities in the north-western province of Kurdistan as restive youths used the occasion of Iran’s traditional “fire festival” to hold anti-government protests, residents told Iran Focus by telephone on Tuesday.

Youths set fire to posters of Khamenei in Iran capital

Tehran, Iran, Mar. 14 – Young people set fire to pictures of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and former leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in Tehran, according to dissidents in the Iranian capital.

Protestors gathered and burned down posters of Iranian leaders hung on lampposts in Mirdamad Street in Tehran.

Despite a massive crackdown to prevent this year’s “fire festival” from turning into scenes of anti-governments protests, young people have taken to the streets across Iran to defy the government ban and celebrate the last Tuesday of the Persian year with a big bang.

During the festival, known as ‘chaharshanbeh souri’ – literally, Feast of Wednesday – people jump over bonfires to “drive away evil”. Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, however, Iran’s theocratic leaders have made strenuous efforts to stamp out the festivities, but to no avail. In recent years, there have been extensive clashes between festive crowds and the security forces deployed to prevent street celebrations. This year the event falls on March 14.

Iran’s main opposition group, the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MeK), has issued an appeal to people across the country to take part in the celebrations on the night and turn it into an anti-government protest.

Already steps have been taken to prevent widespread protests from flaring during the traditional Persian festival celebrated by Iranians for over 2,500 years.

Posters of officials set fire to in Iran

Furious people set on fire posters of hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and former Iranian leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini during extensive demonstrations in the western city of Khorramabad as “fire” festivals across the country continued well into the night.

Effigies of Iran’s Supreme Leader set on fire in demos

Anti-government demonstrations erupted across the Iranian capital as well as in towns and cities across the country as young people used the annual Persian “fire festival” to ignite fireworks and set cars belonging to the State Security Forces (SSF) on fire, dissidents told Iran Focus.

In the south-western city of Ahwaz protestors constructed an effigy of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and set it on fire.

Russia Says No To Iran

Iran loses Russian backing after rejecting nuclear deal

Published: 13 March 2006

Iran has lost crucial support from its powerful ally Russia after the Iranian foreign ministry said Tehran is no longer considering a Russian compromise aimed at resolving the dispute over Iran's nuclear threat.

A foreign ministry spokesman, Hamid Reza Asefi, flatly told reporters in Tehran that "the Russian proposal is not on our agenda any more".

Russia's offer of a joint venture to enrich uranium outside Iran had been seen as Iran's last chance to avoid UN Security Council action.

The West, concerned that Iran may be working to build a nuclear weapon under cover of a civilian programme, wants to prevent Iran from enriching uranium as the process can lead to production of weapons-grade fuel. Iran continues to insist on its right to uranium enrichment for peaceful purposes.

Russia warned that Iran's tough position could "radicalise the nature of the UN Security Council debate". The five permanent members - Britain, the US, France, Russia and China - have been struggling to agree on a unified position before talks widen to include the full 15-member council later this week. The dispute was referred to the UN by the International Atomic Energy Agency last week after Tehran refused to comply with demands made by the IAEA.

Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the international affairs committee of Russia's lower house of parliament, said Iran's move had destroyed the only chance for a compromise.

Mr Asefi said: "Circumstances have changed. We have to wait and see how things go with the five veto-holding countries" on the Security Council.

Thanks For Telling Us Where It Is

Iran builds a secret underground complex as nuclear tensions rise

Iran's leaders have built a secret underground emergency command centre in Teheran as they prepare for a confrontation with the West over their illicit nuclear programme, the Sunday Telegraph has been told.

The complex of rooms and offices beneath the Abbas Abad district in the north of the capital is designed to serve as a bolthole and headquarters for the country's rulers as military tensions mount.

The recently completed command centre is connected by tunnels to other government compounds near the Mossala prayer ground, one of the city's most important religious sites.

Offices of the state security forces, the energy department and the Organisation of Islamic Culture and Communications are all located in the same area.

The construction of the complex is part of the regime's plan to move more of its operations beneath ground. The Revolutionary Guard has overseen the development of subterranean chambers and tunnels - some more than half a mile long and an estimated 35ft high and wide - at sites across the country for research and development work on nuclear and rocket programmes.

The opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) learned about the complex from its contacts within the regime. The same network revealed in 2002 that Iran had been operating a secret nuclear programme for 18 years.

The underground strategy is partly designed to hide activities from satellite view and international inspections but also reflects a growing belief in Teheran that its showdown with the international community could end in air strikes by America or Israel. "Iran's leaders are clearly preparing for a confrontation by going underground," said Alireza Jafarzadeh, the NCRI official who made the 2002 announcement.

America and Europe believe that Iran is secretly trying to acquire an atomic bomb, although the regime insists that its nuclear programme is for civilian energy purposes.

As the United Nations Security Council prepares to discuss Iran's nuclear operations this week, Teheran has been stepping up plans for confrontation. Its chief delegate on nuclear talks last week threatened that Iran would inflict "harm and pain" on America if censured by the Security Council.

US intelligence believes that if Iranian nuclear facilities were attacked by either America or Israel, then Teheran would respond by trying to close the Strait of Hormuz with naval forces, mines and anti-ship cruise missiles.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the hardline president who has called for Israel to be "wiped off the map", also said that the West would "suffer" if it tried to thwart Iran's nuclear ambitions. As the war of words intensified, President George W Bush said that Teheran represents a "grave national security concern" for America.

Iran News and More Threats

Ahmadinejad says Iran will make West regret aggression

Tehran, Iran, Mar. 08 – The West will regret trying to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear capabilities, radical Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday, state television reported.

“Everyone must accept and respect the Iranian nation’s desire to obtain peaceful nuclear technology”, Ahmadinejad said at a rally in the city of Khorramabad, western Iran.

“If anyone shows aggression to the Iranian nation’s rights, Iran will wipe the dark stain of regret on their foreheads”.

“If the world accepts Iran’s desire then fine, but if it wants to ignore the rights of the Iranian nation then Iran will know what path to pursue”.

“If we stand strong the enemies will be defeated in the face of the Iranian nation’s will”.

In an apparent reaction to an accusation Tuesday by United States Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld that Iran was sending members of its Revolutionary Guards into Iraq to cause harm.

Iran said on Wednesday the United States could feel "harm and pain" if the U.N. Security Council took up the issue of Tehran's nuclear research and Tehran vowed to pursue the program come what may.

"The United States may have the power to cause harm and pain but it is also susceptible to harm and pain. So if the United States wishes to choose that path, let the ball roll," it said in a statement obtained by Reuters on the sidelines of a U.N. nuclear watchdog board meeting in Vienna.

An Iranian collision course with the council looked more likely after Tehran brushed aside what EU diplomats said was a Russian offer to let it do some atomic research if it refrained from enriching uranium on an industrial scale for 7-9 years.

Brigadier General Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar

Iran’s Defence Minister vowed on Wednesday that the country’s armed forces were prepared for any foreign military aggression.

“The armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran are ready to defend the country from any threats by the enemies”, Brigadier General Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar said while in the western city of Khorramshahr, the official state news agency reported.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Say U.S. “bluffing”

Tehran, Iran, Mar. 07 – A senior Revolutionary Guards commander dismissed on Tuesday threats by the United States over Iran’s nuclear program as “political bluff”, the government-owned news agency Fars reported.

Brigadier General Ali-Reza Afshar, a veteran Revolutionary Guards commander and director of propaganda and cultural affairs in the high command of the Armed Forces, made the remarks on the final day of a conference in Tehran entitled “the West’s Psychological War Against Iran”.

“The bulk of America’s threatening propaganda against the Islamic Republic of Iran is just political bluff”, Afshar said.
He said that Iran was countering the “psychological war” being waged by the U.S. by highlighting America’s “domestic problems”, citing issues such as poverty, torture in prisons, unemployment, inequality, and instrumentalisation of women.
Afshar said that his government was exposing “America’s plots” in the Middle East. “When Muslims become aware of such plots, they forge a remarkable unity against America”.

Afshar cited the seizure of British gunboats by the Revolutionary Guards in June 2004 as an example of successful psychological war by Iran.

“If the Revolutionary Guards had not acted quickly in putting out news of the seizure of the boats, we would not have been able to create that psychological war against the British”, he said.

Scenes of blindfolded and handcuffed British marines being paraded by Revolutionary Guards shocked television viewers in London in the summer of 2004. Despite repeated requests by Britain, Iran has refused to return the boats and equipment.

Afshar listed four stages of psychological war as peace, threats, crisis and war. He said that with the coming to power of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, “enemy plans to sow discord within the government of the Islamic Republic” have been thwarted.

“Now the enemy is trying to use other tools against us, including ethnic and religious conflicts and partisan strife, but we must recognise these and be ready to confront them”, the Revolutionary Guards general said.

Iranian Very Lethal IED's Used In Iraq By Insurgents

I apologize for this long post, but I want to make sure to get all the information in as well as the photos for you to see.

OK I have a question. ( ??????) Last year this story came out on August 5th, 2005. I did not have a blog then and I saved it. I am posting it now, because of another article that came out today about this.
My quedtion is this......are these the same IED's ...only written about at different times? The stories are very similar in information.

Some Bombs Used in Iraq Are Made in Iran, U.S. Says
August 5,2005
Iran Focus
New York Times

WASHINGTON - Many of the new, more sophisticated roadside bombs used to attack American and government forces in Iraq have been designed in Iran and shipped in from there, United States military and intelligence officials said Friday, raising the prospect of increased foreign help for Iraqi insurgents.

Unlike the improvised explosive devices devised from Iraq's vast stockpiles of missiles, artillery shells and other arms, the new weapons are specially designed to destroy armored vehicles, military bomb experts say. The bombs feature shaped charges, which penetrate armor by focusing explosive power in a single direction and by firing a metal projectile embedded in the device into the target at high speed. The design is crude but effective if the vehicle's armor plating is struck at the correct angle, the experts said.

Since they first began appearing about two months ago, some of these devices have been seized, including one large shipment that was captured last week in northeast Iraq coming from Iran. But one senior military officer said "tens" of the devices had been smuggled in and used against allied forces, killing or wounding several Americans throughout Iraq in the past several weeks.

"These are among the most sophisticated and most lethal devices we've seen," said the senior officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the delicate intelligence reports describing the bombs. "It's very serious."

Pentagon and intelligence officials say that some shipments of the new explosives have contained both components and fully manufactured devices, and may have been spirited into Iraq along the porous Iranian border by the Iranian-backed, anti-Israeli terrorist group Hezbollah, or by Iran's Revolutionary Guard. American commanders say

"The devices we're seeing now have been machined," said a military official who has access to classified reporting on the insurgents' bomb-making abilities. "There is evidence of some sophistication."

American officials say they have no evidence that the Iranian government is involved. But Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and the new United States ambassador in Baghdad, Zalmay Khalilzad, complained publicly this week about the Tehran government's harmful meddling in Iraqi affairs.


And now here is the recent story dated March 6th,2006

EXCLUSIVE: Iraq Weapons -- Made in Iran?
Intelligence Officials Say Weapons Responsible for Increasing U.S. Deaths in Iraq
ABC News

U.S. military and intelligence officials tell ABC News that they have caught shipments of deadly new bombs at the Iran-Iraq border.

They are a very nasty piece of business, capable of penetrating U.S. troops' strongest armor.

What the United States says links them to Iran are tell-tale manufacturing signatures — certain types of machine-shop welds and material indicating they are built by the same bomb factory.

"The signature is the same because they are exactly the same in production," says explosives expert Kevin Barry. "So it's the same make and model."

U.S. officials say roadside bomb attacks against American forces in Iraq have become much more deadly as more and more of the Iran-designed and Iran-produced bombs have been smuggled in from the country since last October.

"I think the evidence is strong that the Iranian government is making these IEDs, and the Iranian government is sending them across the border and they are killing U.S. troops once they get there," says Richard Clarke, former White House counterterrorism chief and an ABC News consultant. "I think it's very hard to escape the conclusion that, in all probability, the Iranian government is knowingly killing U.S. troops."

Very Lethal'

U.S. intelligence officials say Iran is using the bombs as a way to drive up U.S. casualties in Iraq but without provoking a direct confrontation.

John Negroponte, director of national intelligence, testified before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Februrary 2, saying, "

The U.S. Army has embarked on a crash effort to find ways to stop the bombs, according to an unclassified report issued last month. The devices are easily hidden and detonated by motion detectors — like those used in garden security lights — that cannot be jammed.

When exploded, the copper disc becomes a molten liquid bullet that can penetrate the thickest armor the United States has.

"They penetrate the armor of an M1 Abrams tank," Clarke says. "They're shape charges. They go through anything, and they are very lethal."

There is currently no real defense against the weapons, he says.

"The Pentagon has a major crash study underway to figure out how to stop them," Clarke says, "but they haven't figured it out yet."


And now here are the photos..... there were no photos with last years story but there are this year.

Arrows show the impact of new, deadlier IEDs being used against the U.S. military's armored vehicles in Iraq.


The explosively formed projectile IEDs are designed to penetrate armored vehicles and are the most lethal insurgent weapon in Iraq.


The bombs entail a casing, a high explosive and a liner and are generally a length of steel pipe. (ABC News)


The explosives also can be made from plastic and tin cans, and the rear is sealed with a back plate or concrete. (ABC News)

Please pray every day for our troops, and every time you think of them during the day as well. Pray for their safety! When you are driving down the road and you feel safe in your vehicle with no bombs going off over your head pray for our troops. When you go in and out of a building and do not have to worry about bombs like they do in Israel, pray for our troops. When you take your children to school and do not have to make sure they know where the exits are to run for cover like they do in Israel, please pray for our troops safety. They have our six, they are fighting the most vile enemy in the world and they make sacrifices every day for all of us.

The World Needs To Get Rid Of This Guy

Iran Wants to Inspect Auschwitz

The government of Iran is seeking permission from the Polish government to conduct on-site inspections of the Nazi death camps at Auschwitz and Birkenau as part of its so-called investigation into whether the Holocaust actually took place.

The Jewish Forward reports this week:
"With an international showdown fast approaching, Iran once again upset Jewish organizations and raised Western ire by questioning the Holocaust. This time, Iran proposed sending a team of investigators to conduct on-site inspections of Nazi concentration camps, in advance of a Tehran-sponsored conference to debate the 'real scale of the Holocaust.'"

The plan was quickly rejected by Polish Foreign Minister Stefan Miller.

"Under no circumstances should we permit this," Miller told the Polish press agency PAP. "This is beyond all imaginable norms that such a thing is discussed."

The Auschwitz-Birkenau museum said in a statement that it would not allow Iranian experts to conduct their Holocaust investigation at the camp.

In recent months, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly questioned the accuracy of historical reports on the Holocaust, while at the same time calling for Israel to be "wiped of the map."

Suicide Bomber Recruitment Drive In Tehran


An Iranian student, fills in the papers of a registration form indicating his readiness for martyrdom, or to carry out suicide attacks, in Tehran, Iran, Saturday, Feb. 18, 2006. A gathering of Iranians who claim they are dedicated to becoming suicide bombers warned the United States and Britain on Saturday of attacks on coalition military bases in Iraq if there were a strike against Tehran's nuclear facilities. (AP Photo/Hasan Sarbakhshian)


Iran group stages new suicide bomber recruitment drive

TEHRAN (AFP) - A small hardline Iranian group launched a fresh suicide bomber recruitment drive, hoping to lure volunteers ready to die in the fight against Israel, Salman Rushdie or foreign invaders.

"The most important martyrdom-seeking operations that we call on people to register for is to defend the country in case of an attack," explained Mohammad Samadi, spokesman for the "Committee for the Glorification of Martyrs of the Global Islamic Movement."

"We feel a serious threat by America," he told AFP at the event, held in a Tehran university building and attended by around 100 people.

After some three hours of speeches and films on Palestinian bombers, just a few dozen people stuck around to sign a form with three options: target the "occupiers of Qods (Jerusalem)", the "apostate Salman Rushdie" or "invaders."

Samadi said that over the past year, 1,000 people have registered to die and 300 of them had entered training courses including "theory and practice."

Iran's previous reformist government had distanced itself from the group. It asserted that this was merely a symbolic way for people to express their anger against Israel or Rushdie -- sentenced to death by Iran's revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in 1989 over his book "The Satanic Verses."

But radicals have been given a new lease of life with last June's election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has labelled Israel a "tumour" that "must be wiped off the map" and branded the Holocaust a "myth."

"The average age range of participants is between 18 and 25, but we also get 80-year-old applicants," Samadi said. "This is a way to give chance to people who have potential to show their capability to fight against invaders."

One of those signing up was Hamidreza Shahnazari, a bearded 24-year-old electrical student.

"I registered to prove that Iranian youth are not only those on the street with the latest fashions. There are many young people that dream about martyrdom every night," he said.

"It does not matter where or when; if there is a possibility for me to fight I will definitely dedicate my life to it.

Arezou, a 21-year-old Spanish language student, added: "I think the only choice is martyrdom. Israel is the main and biggest problem that we have to fight against it by martyrdom-seeking actions."

Iran insists it only gives "moral support" to militant groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah or Islamic Jihad, but is accused by the United States as being the leading sponsor of international terrorism.

Senator Says Iran Owns China and Russia's UN Votes

Iran owns China, Russia UN votes - US senator

Russia and China have too much riding on commercial relations with Iran to help the West in curbing Tehran's nuclear ambitions, a U.S. senator said on Tuesday, calling for tough measures with Moscow and Beijing.

"The two countries that are sending the wrong signals today are Russia and China," said Kansas Republican Sam Brownback

"Part of the problem is Iran ... has effectively bought U.N. Security Council vetoes from China and, very likely, Russia," Brownback, a potential presidential contender in 2008, said in a speech at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.

Experts at a symposium at the conservative think tank said Moscow is a major arms supplier to Iran, while Beijing has struck energy deals worth as much as $100 billion with Tehran.

Both of those large powers have also embraced Iran as part of a strategic policy of blunting U.S. influence in the Middle East and Central Asia, the experts said.

"I don't think China and Russia are going to make serious efforts to stop Iran or North Korea," said Stephen Blank, a China expert at the U.S. Army War College.

Brownback said that to pressure countries that support Iran, Washington should initiate a campaign of sanctions modeled on a 1980s campaign targeting companies that helped the Soviet Union build a pipeline to Western Europe.

"Like the former Soviet Union, both Russia and China need international technological and managerial support to keep their activities going," said Brownback.

"No international company is going to treat lightly exclusion from the U.S. market in exchange for contracts with the Iranian government," he said.

Earlier on Tuesday, Iran resumed feeding uranium gas into centrifuges for nuclear-fuel enrichment after a break of 2-1/2 years and announced it was deferring until next week talks on a Russian proposal to defuse the nuclear standoff.

The West suspects Tehran of trying to develop atomic bombs under cover of a civilian program and persuaded the International Atomic Energy Agency's governing board last week to report Iran to the U.N. Security Council for possible action, which could include sanctions.

Iran says its nuclear work is designed solely to generate electricity for its economy.

Germany Claims Iran Stole Warhead Missile Technology

The German government has reportedly issued a warning that Iranian and Syrian weapons makers are using cutting-edge German technology poached by Russian criminals.

“Leading-edge (German) technology sold in a completely legal fashion to Russian enterprises and research institutes has been transmitted immediately to Iranian and Syrian workshops manufacturing missiles,” the magazine said, quoting from a warning letter to “numerous German enterprises.”

Iran used German measuring instruments and propulsion and control systems in its Shahab-3 missile, which with its 3,500-kilometer (2,175-miles) range could strike European targets with nuclear warheads, the magazine reported.

February 13, 2006: Germany has arrested two of its citizens and charged them with helping Iran obtain German technology needed to build nuclear warheads for ballistic missiles. A Russian and a North Korean were also accused of helping the Germans. While little discussed in the media, the warhead for a nuclear missile is one of the more difficult bits of technology to develop.

A nuclear weapon is a precision machine, containing many complex electronic, mechanical and chemical components. The ballistic missile basically carries the warhead outside the earth's atmosphere, and then sends it back ("reentry") at speeds in excess of 20,000 kilometers an hour (nearly six kilometers a second). It's this speed that creates tremendous heat, as the warhead enters the atmosphere. The high speeds also create high G forces and vibration. All this generates some very unfriendly conditions for the components of the nuclear device.

It is not easy to build a warhead that can keep the nuclear device in operating order. The two Germans were specifically charged with getting a vibration testing device out of the country, and to Iran. This device makes it possible to test nuclear bomb and warhead structure components without having to launch a missile.

The Russian connection is ominous, because Russia has lots of proven warhead technology. North Korea is also working on designing warheads for nuclear weapons. Iran has long used bribed foreigners to help them get military technology and equipment for them, stuff that no nation would knowingly sell to Iran.

Iran Holocaust Cartoon Contest

Israel News Agency To Post Iran Holocaust Cartoons


In response to Iran’s best-selling newspaper announcing a competition to find the best cartoons about the Holocaust, the Israel News Agency has begun to post the Holocaust cartoons.

“Iran is seeking any means to divert attention away from the fact that they are building nuclear weapons,” said Joel Leyden, publisher of the Israel News Agency. “Iran states that they want to test the democratic limits of Western free speech by laughing at the Holocaust, and the INA is more than pleased to oblige in posting these cartoons. The only catch is that we are doing so with an educational, factual disclaimer inserted inside these Holocaust cartoons. It states: “Six Million Jews Were Gassed, Shot and Hung During the Holocaust. This cartoon does not promote ‘free speech’ rather it illustrates Islamic racist hate and incitement to violence against all other religions.”

The Israel News Agency in posting these Holocaust cartoons from Iran, has launched an SEO - Internet (search engine optimization) marketing contest to prevent Iran and Islam terrorist groups news Websites from reaching top positions in Google. This is the first time that a SEO contest was created for a political and humanitarian cause. And the INA has secured Olympic gold in its quest to outrank any and all Arab and Islam Websites as when one searches for the key words: “iran holocaust cartoons” the Israel News Agency has secured a Google first place ranking.

Please join in with us. Post a Holocaust cartoon today. And be sure to link “iran holocaust cartoons” to Israel News Agency. Shine a light on Islamic race hatred.

Whether it be supporting our Military, our Veterans, political things, ranting about the left, or speaking out about the death cult Islam and the moon god worshipers.

I will simply not stand by and shake my head and wonder why someone does not speak up. I am not important but the passion I have is immense for the things I believe in and hopefully that will count for something.

Ahmadinejad Says Time Has Come For World To Bow To Allah


Jerusalem News Wire

Iran to West: Remove Israel, or we will

If the West fails to peacefully remove the “Zionist entity” from the Middle East, the “Palestinians” and their Islamic allies will do so through violent fury, warned Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at a mass demonstration in Tehran Saturday.

Addressing the hundreds of thousands who turned out to mark the 27th anniversary of Iran's “Islamic Revolution,” the virulent leader, said:

“We ask the West to remove what they created sixty years ago and if they do not listen to our recommendations, then the Palestinian nation and other nations will eventually do this for them. Remove Israel before it is too late and save yourself from the fury of regional nations.”

Islam dictates that formerly-Muslim dominated lands cannot revert to permanent non-Muslim control. It is this cornerstone of their faith that drives the murderous anti-Israel policies of Hamas and most of the Jewish state's Middle East neighbors.

But the threat is not only to Israel and other non-Muslim nations that have regained their sovereignty. Reconquering them is only the first step.

According to the Muslim faith, jihad must be waged until the entire world is under the thumb of Islam. Ahmadinejad declared that now is the time for the West to bow to this reality and submit to Allah:

“On the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution, the Iranian nation, numbering in the millions, calls upon those governments to worship Allah.”

Similar sentiment was expressed by Iran's Hamas allies in the Palestinian Authority last week.

Speaking at a Damascus mosque on February 3, overall Hamas political leader Khaled Mashal declared:

“We say to this West... By Allah, you will be defeated... Tomorrow, our nation will sit on the throne of the world. This is not a figment of the imagination, but a fact."


Wild Thing's comment..........
So by the power of the moon god (allah), and I suppose their pedophile prophet as well. ...there might be some real substance behind that threat! I don't know but this guy scares the heck out of me. Israel is his immediate goal, but as we have heard his aims are global. He knows there will be retaliation that will destroy his country and kill most if not all of it's people and he does not care. This is not a game or someone just wanting to hear himself talk. This is deadly serious.

Iran Renames Danish Pastries and More On Pastry Wars


Iran has decided to rename Danish pastries "Mohammedan" pastry - a new twist in the crisis which has triggered protest by Muslims throughout the world against cartoons of Mohammed first published in Denmark. The name change recalls when some Americans started calling French fries, "Freedom fries" to protest France's opposition to the United States-led invasion of Iraq.

Iran has recalled its ambassador from Copenhagen, and on Tuesday announced a halt to all imports of Danish products. Demonstrators in Tehran on Tuesday attacked the Danish embassy with stones and petrol bombs, the second such assault in two days.

Hot cross buns too offensive for school

A school in the United Kingdom has banned traditional hot cross buns for fear the religious symbol drawn on the top of each roll might offend some students.

Hot cross buns are normally served during the Easter season, especially on Good Friday. Without the white cross drawn with icing, the treat is just a plain currant bun.

Iran's Khamenei: The Danish Cartoons Are a Zionist Plot


The supreme authority in Iran, the chief cleric Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, declared on Tuesday that the cartoons of Islam's Muhammad published in Europe, which have caused an ongoing and violent uproar in the Muslim world, are a Zionist plot against Islam. The cartoons were Israel's response to the Islamic Hamas movement's recent electoral win in the Palestinian Authority, according to Khamenei.

The Associated Press reports that Khamenei told a radio audience that the cartoons are a "conspiracy by Zionists who were angry because of the victory of Hamas." He was speaking at a ceremony in honor of Iran's air force for its role in bringing the Islamists to power in Iran.

Wild Thing's comment.....
Well that makes tons of sense.....NIOT. The cartoons were first printed in October 2005, Hamas didn't win 'til last month. Europe is only beginning to awaken to their PC/multicultural nightmare and already there are leftists out there calling for censure, rather than fighting for Free Speech.

Plutonium Hugger Ahmadinejad Glows or So He Says

'Divine mission' driving Iran's new leader
By Anton La Guardia
(Filed: 14/01/2006)

As Iran rushes towards confrontation with the world over its nuclear programme, the question uppermost in the mind of western leaders is "What is moving its President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to such recklessness?"

Political analysts point to the fact that Iran feels strong because of high oil prices, while America has been weakened by the insurgency in Iraq.

But listen carefully to the utterances of Mr Ahmadinejad - recently described by President George W Bush as an "odd man" - and there is another dimension, a religious messianism that, some suspect, is giving the Iranian leader a dangerous sense of divine mission.

In November, the country was startled by a video showing Mr Ahmadinejad telling a cleric that he had felt the hand of God entrancing world leaders as he delivered a speech to the UN General Assembly last September.

When an aircraft crashed in Teheran last month, killing 108 people, Mr Ahmadinejad promised an investigation. But he also thanked the dead, saying: "What is important is that they have shown the way to martyrdom which we must follow."

The most remarkable aspect of Mr Ahmadinejad's piety is his devotion to the Hidden Imam, the Messiah-like figure of Shia Islam, and the president's belief that his government must prepare the country for his return.

One of the first acts of Mr Ahmadinejad's government was to donate about £10 million to the Jamkaran mosque, a popular pilgrimage site where the pious come to drop messages to the Hidden Imam into a holy well.

All streams of Islam believe in a divine saviour, known as the Mahdi, who will appear at the End of Days. A common rumour - denied by the government but widely believed - is that Mr Ahmadinejad and his cabinet have signed a "contract" pledging themselves to work for the return of the Mahdi and sent it to Jamkaran.

Iran's dominant "Twelver" sect believes this will be Mohammed ibn Hasan, regarded as the 12th Imam, or righteous descendant of the Prophet Mohammad.

He is said to have gone into "occlusion" in the ninth century, at the age of five. His return will be preceded by cosmic chaos, war and bloodshed. After a cataclysmic confrontation with evil and darkness, the Mahdi will lead the world to an era of universal peace.

This is similar to the Christian vision of the Apocalypse. Indeed, the Hidden Imam is expected to return in the company of Jesus.

Mr Ahmadinejad appears to believe that these events are close at hand and that ordinary mortals can influence the divine timetable.

The prospect of such a man obtaining nuclear weapons is worrying. The unspoken question is this: is Mr Ahmadinejad now tempting a clash with the West because he feels safe in the belief of the imminent return of the Hidden Imam? Worse, might he be trying to provoke chaos in the hope of hastening his reappearance?

The 49-year-old Mr Ahmadinejad, a former top engineering student, member of the Revolutionary Guards and mayor of Teheran, overturned Iranian politics after unexpectedly winning last June's presidential elections.

The main rift is no longer between "reformists" and "hardliners", but between the clerical establishment and Mr Ahmadinejad's brand of revolutionary populism and superstition.

Its most remarkable manifestation came with Mr Ahmadinejad's international debut, his speech to the United Nations.

World leaders had expected a conciliatory proposal to defuse the nuclear crisis after Teheran had restarted another part of its nuclear programme in August.

Instead, they heard the president speak in apocalyptic terms of Iran struggling against an evil West that sought to promote "state terrorism", impose "the logic of the dark ages" and divide the world into "light and dark countries".

The speech ended with the messianic appeal to God to "hasten the emergence of your last repository, the Promised One, that perfect and pure human being, the one that will fill this world with justice and peace".

In a video distributed by an Iranian web site in November, Mr Ahmadinejad described how one of his Iranian colleagues had claimed to have seen a glow of light around the president as he began his speech to the UN. "I felt it myself too," Mr Ahmadinejad recounts. "I felt that all of a sudden the atmosphere changed there. And for 27-28 minutes all the leaders did not blink…It's not an exaggeration, because I was looking.

"They were astonished, as if a hand held them there and made them sit. It had opened their eyes and ears for the message of the Islamic Republic."

Western officials said the real reason for any open-eyed stares from delegates was that "they couldn't believe what they were hearing from Ahmadinejad".

Their sneaking suspicion is that Iran's president actually relishes a clash with the West in the conviction that it would rekindle the spirit of the Islamic revolution and - who knows - speed up the arrival of the Hidden Imam.

Wild Thing's comment............
I think this idiot, this deranged person does relish confrontation with the West. He is really asking for it. They claim to have seen a "glowing light" around their president? Give me a break! There might yet be a bright glow around him, but not quite what he was thinking.
This is a dangerous man. Even more troubling, this is a dangerous man in a position of some power. I have to wonder this. After they watched what happened to Saddam the only thing that would seem to make them so bold is hidden nuclear weapons that we aren't aware of.
Mr Ahmadinejad telling a cleric that he had felt the hand of God entrancing world leaders as he delivered a speech to the UN General Assembly last September. The UN General Assembly is a podium for the worlds nitwits.This jerkoff Ahmadinejad, Chavez , Mugabe , Morales , and a host of others , should be totally banned and not allowed to come anywhere close to US airspace. If the try to anyway, shoot them down.

Iran Removing U.N. seals At Atomic Research Sites

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran said on Sunday it was preparing to remove U.N. seals at some nuclear research and development sites, despite strong Western opposition to its decision to resume atomic research halted over two years ago.

It would be the second time in five months that Iran, which insists its nuclear programme is peaceful, removed some seals put in place by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

European Union and U.S. officials have said the move, which follows Iran's resumption of uranium processing at its Isfahan plant in August, will jeopardize efforts to find a diplomatic solution to Iran's atomic ambitions and could accelerate calls for its case to be sent to the U.N. Security Council.

"We will remove the seals and we have announced that we are ready to start research from tomorrow," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told a weekly news conference.

"It depends on the IAEA to announce its readiness as this will take place under the agency's supervision," he added.

A resumption of atomic research and development would mean that all of Iran's nuclear programme, much of which was put on hold as part of negotiations with the EU that started in late 2003, was active once again apart from the actual enrichment of uranium at its unfinished Natanz facility.

Uranium enrichment is the most sensitive part of the nuclear fuel cycle since it can be used to produce bomb-grade material as well as nuclear reactor fuel.

Iran has not publicly disclosed what activities it plans to resume on Monday. Diplomats and analysts say atomic research and development could involve some laboratory tests of uranium enrichment and the assembly of enrichment centrifuges.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Cruising For A Bruising

I hope we make him shut up!

Iran’s Ahmadinejad wants committee to investigate Holocaust

Tehran, Iran, Dec. 26 – Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who recently called for the destruction of Israel and termed the Holocaust a “myth” has asked for a committee to be set up to prove that the massacre of some six million Jews in Nazi Germany never took place.

The Fars news agency, which is close to the office of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said that Ahmadinejad had proposed the idea after his comments calling for Israel to be moved to European countries such as Germany and Austria drew international outrage and United Nations Security Council condemnation.

Mohammad-Ali Ramin, who heads the state-run body Society for Defending the Rights of Muslim Minorities in the West, told Fars that Ahmadinejad wanted European governments to permit Western scholars to publish their research on the Holocaust.

Ahmadinejad wanted the committee to clarify the real extent of the Holocaust, according to Ramin, who added that the radical President had the support of hard-liners loyal to the Supreme Leader.

Senior officials inside the clerical establishment including Khamenei himself have backed Ahmadinejad’s threatening remarks against the Jewish state.

Wild Thing's comment.........
Now Look at this
Video: Iranian President Declaring Goal of Destruction of Israel and the Jews, Imminent Return of Islamic Prophet, and divine intervention during his speech.

Listen to what this man has to say! He's out to destroy Israel and the Jew's. He's out to bring the world under Islamic domination. He believes heavenly light surrounds him when he speaks and subdues the leaders of the world before him. He's doing everything within his power to acquire and/or develop nuclear weapons and long range missiles. He's instructing his people to prepare for the return of his ancient prophet. He's 100% serious.

And now for a short news history.................

Terrorist On The Loose and Looking For A Right Upper Cut

My name is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
and I am an idiot. I am a Holocaust denier
and my plan is to relocate an entire nation
to another continent! Oh and did I tell you
I am also a terrorist and I am in charge of
the world's newest
nuclear state!

Here is the article by Mark Steyn......."But seriously folks, this clown is dangerous"

On Thursday, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, who recently called for Israel to be wiped off the map, moderated his position. In a spirit of statesmanlike compromise, he now wants Israel wiped off the map of the Middle East and wiped on to the map of Europe.

Now take a look at this bull at Reuters........." Iran's Ahmadinejad casts doubt on Holocaust"

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday expressed doubt the Holocaust took place and suggested the Jewish state of Israel be moved to Europe.

Ahmadinejad was quoted by IRNA [from a news conference he gave in the Saudi Arabian city of Mecca] as saying: "Some European countries insist on saying that Hitler killed millions of innocent Jews in furnaces and they insist on it to the extent that if anyone proves something contrary to that they condemn that person and throw them in jail.

Wild Thing's comment......
The leaders of the world need to address this vile piece of crap with meaningful actions and more than words of disbelief or condemnation! These evil remarks in blatant disregard of documented history is nothing new of course coming from the kind of person that Ahmadinejad is himself and the kind of people that he represents.
Turning the other cheek does not apply when a leader of any country spouts this kind of hate and war talk. This so called man is dangerous, to America, to Israel and to the entire world.
I ask where is the outrage? Sure we know he is full of it, sure we know he is minus many crayons in his box.But this kind of verbiage is dangerous. It is a call to those that agree with his hate mongering of Jews and anytime that happens it can never be acceptable, it can never be fluffed off as a " there he goes again." moment in time.
This ass is asking for it big time and I for one am hoping he gets it right between his beety eyes.

"A World Without Zionism".... I think NOT!

Addressing a meeting titled, "A World Without Zionism", Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad provided with a look into his demented mind, the way Hitler did in Mein Kampf.

He declared "The world arrogant powers founded the Zionist regime at the heart of the Muslim world as a base for their own expansionist intentions."

He added that a world with out the United States and Israel is a possibility.

Iran 'lets al-Qaeda roam free'

From correspondents in Berlin
October 27, 2005
IRAN is permitting around 25 high-ranking al-Qaeda members to roam free in the country's capital, including three sons of Osama bin Laden, a German monthly magazine reports.

Citing information from unnamed Western intelligence sources, the magazine Cicero said in a preview of an article appearing in its November edition that the individuals in question are from Egypt, Uzbekistan, Saudi Arabia and Europe. They are living in houses belonging to Iran's Revolutionary Guards, the report said.

"This is not incarceration or house arrest," a Western intelligence agent was quoted as saying. "They can move around as they please."

The three sons of Osama bin Laden in Iran are Saeed, Mohammad and Othman, Cicero reported. Another person enjoying the support of the Revolutionary Guards is al-Qaeda spokesman Abu Ghaib, the report said.

Iran first said late last year that it had arrested and would try a number of foreigners suspected of having links to al-Qaeda, a loose network of military groups that Washington blames for the attacks of September 11, 2001 and bomb attacks in Spain, Indonesia, Egypt and elsewhere.

The report in Cicero also accused the Revolutionary Guards' secret service of offering logistical support and military training to senior al-Qaeda leaders.
Iran has repeatedly denied any link to or support of al-Qaeda.
Britain and the United States suspect Iran of supporting insurgents in Iraq, a charge Tehran has vehemently denied.

Wild Thing comment....

Islam and most of the Arabs have made it clear that they want the world at any cost beginning with Israel, then America and the rest of the free world. When the Muslims live in any free world, they demand their own way of life, schools, courts, say it and then the rest of the governments bow down to their demands. The Muslims are not interested in peace, They want to convert the rest of the world to Islam period. Open your eyes wide and see what is happening around you and do not be fooled.

It is a mistake to view the antagonists in the Middle East as the Palestinians against the Israelis. The fact is that it is the Palestinians and their allies against the United States and Israel. As Abbas went off to meet President Bush, official Palestinian radio was denouncing the United States because it had placed Saddam Hussein on trial.

Our leaders, and all the American people need to equate Palestinian terrorists with bin Laden and the Taliban. If we don’t then our war on terrorism is hypocrisy and will never be successful. He cannot fight one terrorist and coddle another and expect that we will believe he is sincere. Israel's enemies are OUR enemies here in the United States.

I have news for you, you cowardly, sniveling, moon god worshiping hostage taker and torturer. The real God is in charge. And you are not even a speed bump to Him. Enjoy Hell--you earned it.

By the end of September a Russian Cosmos 3 missile will be launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome 800 km north of Moscow, carrying two Iranian satellites into orbit. Although the satellites are claimed to be for meteorological and experimental purposes, experts believe that one of them will possess surveillance capabilities allowing it to observe American and Israeli military facilities throughout the Middle East. More importantly, experts believe that the Iranian space program serves as a cover for developing more advanced long-range missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a dangerous man. I would never trust him, nor believe any promises he makes to the USA....NO, not ever! To allow Iran to have two Iranian satellites.............is bad news and should be stopped if possible.
