Surfing the Channels bit after 6pm local came across Scarborough country with Pat Buchanan and another guest talking about a secret plan the Military has prepared for President Bush with regard to Iran and how to stop their advancement of the Nuke program....( I think ...only caught the tail end. )
Pat says the President is deadly serious about stopping them.....and the Israelis are deadly serious and are muttering that if we don't stop Iran they will and their capabilities with non nukes are suspect so if they were to do they would have to use the bad stuff which ......well you get the drift....
Anyone know if their is a replay so if needed my impressions can be confirmed....guess that might be useful....
Not sure who the third participant was but seemed knowledgeable.
OT a bit:
Military shows off new ray gun*******************EXCERPT *************************
Posted: Wednesday, January 24, 2007 at 4:10 PM
(AP) -- MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. - The US military has unveiled a new weapon. They call it an "active denial system," but that's putting it gently. It's a ray gun that shoots a beam that makes people feel as if they're about to catch fire. But before you start thinking of a phaser set to kill, the technology is supposed to be harmless -- a non-lethal way to get enemies to drop their weapons.
Military officials say it could save the lives of innocent civilians and service members in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. The weapon, mounted atop a Humvee, was demonstrated to the media at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia. Three airmen and ten reporters volunteered to be zapped with the beams. Anyone hit by the beam immediately jumped out of its path because of the sudden blast of heat throughout the body.
Thanks.......Scarborough is rebroadcast at 4AM. Might be worth recording to review.

(The pen is mightier than the sword......until you fight someone.)
Thanks for the ping. Seems like a lot of rehashing of things that have streamed forth over the past few years.
The only major change has been since the Mullah have installed Ahmadinajah as president and given him a thumbs up to reorganize various parts of the government to purge more conservative Mullahs and dump secularist, and consolidate more control over the Intelligence and Secret Police.
And we understand how some of these mystical Shia feel about ushering in a world of total chaos that supposedly would bring the twelve imam out of the pussy well.
I still think the only way to bring an end to this sectarian mullacracy is for enough of Iranians to be willing to spill their blood to kick them all out, and cry out for a secular government free of Sharia laws.
Threatening Europe, China, and Russia by thinking we would actually bomb the shit out of them and stop their flow of oil, may simply not be enough incentive for all nations to band together and impose adequate sanctions. Even if we cut them off they still will work on their nuclear program, "let the people starve but feed the stock UF6 into the centrifuges".
And if we applied sufficient sanctions to cut Iran off monetarily, to a point where they simply cannot continue their nuclear ambitions, then we most likely would also stop their ability to ship crude oil and gas.
There are so many catch twenty twos surrounding the Iranian issue.
Everyone other then Israel for the obvious reasons simply would rather turn their head from the real issues. Like North Korea. They figure then can continue on the nuclear path regardless of how badly their populations will suffer economically. To nations lead by very crazy people. People who in their madness and desire up ultimate power will go to any lengths at the expense of their subjects.
How does one deal with them. NK could be totally isolated and literally starved out of existence to no effect to the rest of the world. But Iran pumps a lot of oil and gas. If it where not for that fact, the solutions could be so easy to obtain, and most likely palatable by many nations.
At any rate. Do have a great upcoming day. I gotta hit the sack to get up for another day at the funny farm.
