US is criminal - Khatami
IRIB News ^ | 2005/12/09

Posted on 12/09/2005 11:08:46 AM PST by F14 Pilot

Tehran, Dec 9 - Former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami on Friday accused the United States of committing a "crime" by refusing to sell modern airplanes and parts to Iran, following a deadly plane crash that killed 108 people.

"To deprive Iran of the most modern and secure (flight) apparatus is a crime against people that a power like the United States does not have the right to commit," he said.

"Unfortunately, after some delay, they (the French) annulled the contract because of the US's refusal... it is a crime against humanity," Khatami said.

"Political conflicts, sanctions and wars between countries exist, but according to international conventions they should not bring harm to individuals," Khatami added.

Until Iran can expel the Lunatic Clerics -- they should experience total immersion in their "old testament" era of Islam...

No modern goods from the "Christian and Jewish Devils"..

When the civilized world has no reason to fear them, they can benefit from the civilized world's accomplishments..

They could, but the middle-east prefers to wallow in victimhood.

Its easier to blame Israel and the US for all their problems, than actually try to make their lives better.

The reason Iranians don't build their own airplanes goes back to their old "back up "plans for flight...

First, the pilot puts a live cat on the cockpit floor. Because a cat always remans upright, the pilot merely has to see which way the cat leans to determine if the wings are level. Second, comes a duck, the duck is used for approaches and landings in "foul" weather conditions. Any sensible duck will refuse to fly under instrument conditions, thus it is only necessary to hurl the duck out the plane and follow it to the ground. Extra Precautions: 1. Get a wide awake cat, because most cats do not want to stand up at all. It may be necessary to carry a dog, so that the cat will be kept at constant attention. 2. Make sure the cat is clean. Dirty cats will spend all their time washing. Trying to follow a washing cat usually results in a tight snap roll, followed by an inverted spin and structural wing failure. 3. Old cats are best. Young cats have nine lives, but an old cat with only one live left has just as much to lose as you do and therefore will be more dependable. 4. Avoid cowardly ducks. If the duck discovers you are using the cat to stay level, the duck will refuse to leave without the cat. 5. Be sure the duck has good eyesight. A nearsighted duck does not realize she has been thrown out of the plane, and will decend to the ground in a sitting postion. Very difficult maneuver to follow in a plane. 6. Use land loving ducks. It is very discouraging to break out of the overcast and find yourself on final approach in the middle of a lake.

Since neither the prophet nor his companions were either having or using airplanes, it necessarily follows that possession and use of aircraft is an impious innovation. Thus they would be better off without them. There must be a fatwa somewhere to that effect.

Iran, what you are dealing with is the law of supply and demand's evil twin. The law of demand and supply.

We demand that you disband your nuclear program before we supply you with anything more dangerous than string. See how that works?

I remember when the sanctions were first announced. Some talking head was talking to an Iranian official. The Iranian was boasting of the modern AF that they had. The one we had sold to the Shah. The newsie asked him how Iran was going to get parts for their planes and other mlitary hardware. The Iranian replied,(perhaps not an exact quote, but close enough) "That is not a problem. After all, we're talking about American companies."

I knew this was coming - it's all Bush's fault! Reminds me of the Taliban complaining they could not hit US aircraft because the pilots (unfairly) flew at too high an altitude.

When and if islam ever accepts it's own shortcomings, there'll be peace, not a moment before. The victimhood stance is what keeps islam in the stone age.

No one minds the idea of a Persian democracy utilizing nuclear power for the generation of electricity, but the idea of barbarians wielding nuclear bombs instead of the clubs they are evolved to use is terrifying.
