Iran Claims It Is First Country in Middle East to Clone a Cow
Fox News ^ | July 11, 2009 | Associated Press

SFAHAN, Iran — Iranian scientists have become the first in the Middle East to clone a cow as part of the country's stem cell research, the leader of the project said Saturday.

The male cow, named Bonyana, was born Saturday in the city of Isfahan in central Iran, said Dr. Mohammed Hossein Nasr e Isfahani, head of the Royan Research Institute.

Besides its nuclear activity and nascent space program, Iran has sought to highlight advances in other technologies such as cloning and medicine. The government set a goal to become a regional leader in advanced sciences and technology by 2025.

Iran announced in 2006 that it cloned a sheep and in April it said it cloned a goat.

Now we know their strategy: destroy the earth via cow-flatulation-induced global warming.

Would that be Kowmanie, or Cowmanie?

In the mean time, the very real and seriuos business of a revolution for liberty continues there with people dying in the streets and in torture chambers for their liberty.

That's because George Bush's legacy and fight endures in the Mid East, despite, and in spite of Obama, and THAT is Obama's real dilema.

It was George Bush's policy of direct engagement and support of liberty that has led to the people of Iran seeing the measure of freedom now established on both sides of them in Iraq and Afghjanistan...and desiring it for themselves.

Obama cannot possibly go too far in recognizing that, or he absolutely repudiates himself and his entire foreign policy.

...but Obama doesn't want to "meddle".

The fight in Iran goes on.

6/24/2009 - Not all fights on June 24th were losses - Iranian people take back streets from Basif

Others were not.

Eyewitness Account to Slaughter in Iran 6/24/2009

While brave Iranians are slaughtered in the street by their own government as they seek liberty, Obama disinvited Iranian officials to American 4th of July celebration.

Meanwhile, they are axing students to death.

URGENT: HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT IRANIAN PROTESTORS RIGHT NOW...ON TWITTER

AMERICANS ON FACEBOOK FOR IRANIAN LIBERTY

POEM FOR THE ROOFTOPS OF IRAN - INCREDIBLY MOVING

You can follow me on twitter if you want.http://www.twitter.com/Jeff_Head

"There is only one force of history that can break the reign of hatred and resentment, and expose the pretensions of tyrants, and reward the hopes of the decent and tolerant, and that is the force of human freedom.

"All who live in tyranny and hopelessness can know: The United States will not ignore your oppression, or excuse your oppressors. When you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you.

"Democratic reformers facing repression, prison or exile can know: America sees you for who you are -- the future leaders of your free country.

"The rulers of outlaw regimes can know that we still believe as Abraham Lincoln did: "Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under the rule of a just God, cannot long retain it."

George W. Bush Jan 2005

Well, they had to do that because they made the women all cover up in chadors after the Islamic Revolution of '79.

OK. Why not? Things are crazy all over the world, economies are in free-fall, countries with bombs are running amok, - and Iran clones a cow.

Essentially, Obama’s hoping to stall until the Iraqi experiment collapses, which will allow him to claim it was a failure from the beginning. That’s why he’s subtly undermining every step they take. (note that we released Iranian prisoners yesterday) Every day Iraq continues to make freedom work is an indictment of his policies.

He’s in a position to create a self-fulfilling prophesy. the only question is whether the Iraqi people can band together and counter it.

“Iran announced in 2006 that it cloned a sheep and in April it said it cloned a goat.”

Why don’t they just go to the barnyard or the madrassa for fun like other muslims?
