I hope and pray that we do not attack Iran, I believe the Iranian people can stand up and bring about change. I felt the opposite in Iraq, I felt we had to invade Iraq because of Saddam's control. I see Iran as the best bet for the advance of peace. Once the Mullahs are gone in Iran, they will be gone forever. I know many Persians and I hope we can avoid a Military conflict with Iran., simply because I fear what the general public in Iran will suffer as a result of such a conflict
Here is a quote from Debka. It makes one go "hmmm":
Some Western sources predict Russian-Iranian agreement signed Sunday to supply nuclear fuel for Bushehr reactor signals countdown to US and/or Israeli attack on Irans nuclear facilities.
Deal signed inside reactor over strong American objections said first batch of enriched uranium fuel ready in Siberia for shipping - by late April, according to DEBKAfiles sources.
Any attack must precede fuel delivery to avoid radioactive fallout across the region as did Israels 1981 strike against Saddams reactor. Sunday, Tehran rejected EU-3 demand to cease uranium enrichment as non-negotiable.
PISANO: "It is truly remarkable that we have accomplished what we have in IRAQ. On a grand scale the terrorism while seemingly dreadfull is really nothing more than a nuisance. I KNOW lives are being lost, ONCE again, on a STRATEGIC MILITARY scale 1250 combat deaths in two years of fighting is very small indeed."
To put it in another perspective:
Population: 25,374,691 (July 2004 est.)
0-14 years: 40.3% (male 5,198,966; female 5,039,173)
15-64 years: 56.7% (male 7,280,167; female 7,094,688)
65 years and over: 3% (male 357,651; female 404,046) (2004 est.)
total: 19.2 years
male: 19.1 years
female: 19.3 years (2004 est.)
US troop level: 135,000 WAPO - 2/4/2005
Iraqis (friendly or otherwise) per US soldier (current force levels) = 188:1. Each soldier is getting a lot done.
Sunday, January 30 2005, PittsburghLive -- One of the Marines killed in the U.S. military's deadliest crash of the Iraq war spent some of his childhood in Butler County.
Lance Cpl. Saeed Jafarkhani-Torshizi Jr., 24, who attended sixth and eighth grades in the Moniteau School District, was among the 30 Marines killed Wednesday, when a helicopter crashed in a sandstorm near Ar Rutbah. One sailor also died in the incident.
"I talked to him 10 days ago," said Jafarkhani-Torshizi's grandmother, Gladys Travis, of Slippery Rock Borough. "He said it (Iraq) is a bad place, but they were all doing their job, protecting each other's back and would be happy to get back home."
Jafarkhani-Torshizi, who spent most of his childhood in Fort Worth, Texas, served with the 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, which is based at Kaneohe Bay in Hawaii.
"He was just a typical American young man. He liked music. He liked sports. He liked having a good time. He made friends easily," Gladys Travis said.
He was the only child of Rani Travis, who is staying with her mother in Slippery Rock. His father, Saeed Jafarkhani-Torshizi Sr., who is in Iran on business, has dual citizenship in Iran and the United States.
Jafarkhani-Torshizi wanted to become a police officer. He joined the Marines about 18 months ago because he felt it would give him a solid foundation for his career, his grandmother said.
Although Jafarkhani-Torshizi was proud to serve his country, his grandmother said she doesn't believe young U.S. soldiers should be fighting and dying in Iraq.
"I said before they went into Iraq that I thought it was a terrible mistake. It's just sad all these wonderful young people are going over there," she said.
A memorial service will be scheduled at Smith Funeral Home in Slippery Rock. The family is planning a burial in St. Charles Cemetery near New Bethlehem, Clarion County.

Norooz is just 19 days away!
Ditto. Iranians themselves are looking forward to this outcome of prosecuting mullahs.
