God bless you for having more functional brain cells than the apparent average American!
Well they could have gone public with the information but then again that might have made the jerk even more popular in Iran.
"Ahmadinejad was a favorite of Khomeini's regime. He executed so many Iranian dissidents that he earned the nickname "Tir Khalas Zan"...literally, "the Terminator".
The 49-year-old Ahmadinejad, who participated in the takeover of the U.S. embassy in Teheran, in 1979, was regarded as the most anti-Western of the presidential candidates. On June 24, he defeated Hashemi Rafsanjani, a former president who headed the Expediency Council, the regime's watchdog over what had been a reformist-dominated parliament. "Thanks to the blood of the martyrs, a new Islamic revolution has arisen and the Islamic revolution of 1384 [the current Iranian year] will, if God wills, cut off the roots of injustice in the world," Ahmadinejad was quoted by the official Iranian news agency as saying. "The era of oppression, hegemonic regimes, tyranny and injustice has reached its end."
Happy 4th to you, too!
Yep, that's some of the stuff I hear and then read. Yesterday, I was getting a tad excited over how, if proven true, this would change the diplomatic landscape. Today, I'm a bit less optomistic, though the ramifications could still be staggering.
The good news about this open hatred towards the US and Israel by the new head Iran Jihadist is simple.
When Israel and we have to take him and the mass murdering mullahs out, his own words can be played back as the reason why we did it.
Uh, duh, are you sure we shoouldn't go to the Un and have some resoultions for the next 10 years? Hey, maybe we could get Hans Blix back in action? Or maybe its time for Hanoi Jane to do some photo ops on one of Iran's nuclear reactors?
OK...spin'em up boys...won't be long now and thank you for your patience!
BTW, I have a friend who starts singing that song every time she sees me! ;o)
Why are people saying the guy in the red circle is him, then? lol
One critical new factor has not been considered by any of the previouis posters; the alliance between Moscow and Bejing is a wild card. Jointly, they have already made veiled threats to the US - http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/2005-07-01-russia-china_x.htm
If this is more than talk, further expansion of the war on terror could draw us into a far larger conflict than we anticipate. I would argue that with the economy and military in it's current state, we are ill prepared should this occur. How much "outsourcing" has been done by the Department of Defense? How quickly can we raise recruitment and training for the military?
Any movement towards Terrhan must be carefully weighed. It is the time for cool heads, not hot ones to prevail. Gut reactions, even in the cause of justice, are a waste of energy and resources. It is imperative we think before we act, and garner as much support from other nations as possible; we'll need all the help we can get.
Bring it on, you goat-humping piece of Shiite. We should have carpet-bombed Teheran back in '79. Thanks, Jimmuh!
Are we talking about Little Shit from the U.S. Embassy in Tehran? I'd like to lock him in a room with the hostages.
I guess he's supposed to be talking about The Great Satan, but he'd better be careful what he wishes for, it might just blow back on his vaunted "Islamic Revolution", which resembles his description more than the U.S. does.
"No need to do that. This guy's gonna end up touching off a revolution in his own country."
It'd be nice to think so, but there is that issue of what happens to the nukes THEN. And you can bet the Islamists will know just where to get `em and run.
