Iran is now a 'nuclear state' says Ahmadinejad as thousands take to the streets
Daily Mail ^ | Feb. 11, 2010

Posted on 02/11/2010 5:34:56 AM PST by COUNTrecount

Violence feared as security forces threaten to crush protests Internet connections attacked in Tehran as regime tries to foil opposition Iran is now a 'nuclear state', President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced this morning. He spoke as tens of thousands of people took to the streets in Tehran to mark the 31st anniversary of the Islamic revolution. There are fears of violence as opposition and pro-government supporters are expected to meet at rallies in a show of popular strength unmatched since the revolution itself. Today Ahmadinejad told scores of cheering Iranians that the Islamic Republic is capable of producing weapons-grade uranium. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addresses tens of thousands of Iranians gathered in Azadi (Freedom) Square in southwestern Tehran today, marking the 31st anniversary of the Islamic revolution Pro-regime supporters shout slogans (left) while a caricature of US President Barack Obama joins the sea of Iranian flags

He said it had produced its first batch of 20 per cent enriched uranium - and had the capability to enrich to far higher levels at its Natanz plant. Enriching uranium produces fuel for a nuclear power plants but can also be used to create material for atomic weapons. The international community has warned Iran against further enrichment activities, threatening new UN sanctions.

At least he didn’t say “nucular”, or the elitists might have really had something to criticize

Today’s talking points to the media, passed down from the White House

“Bush’s Fault”

- a failure of Bush’s lack of diplomacy and “confrontation”
- a failure of Bush’s diplomacy and his lack of confrontation
- Bush’s fault- he called them “evil” and hurt their feelings
-America’s fault, we did not listen respectfully
- America’s fault, the CIA overthrew the govt
- Israel’s fault because Jooos with nukes threatens the islamic world(sarc)

yada yada yada

Thankfully, the Iranian moderates are really in charge of Iran, or they will be real soon, so we can’t say or do anything to upset the Iranians and damage their chances (US State Dept policy of past 32 years)

I wouldn’t be surprised if the press started pronouncing corps as corpse in auto-cya for zero, just as when Bill Clinton lied (and lied and lied and lied), lying suddenly became....not so bad, even a good thing.

That will be fun to watch. It's amazing how shameless the press is. Yesterday my wife and I were watching Sawyer and Steffy discuss, breathlessly "what do the Democrats need to do to win back the independents". I yelled at the TV, as I often do, "WHY DON'T YOU JUST SAY 'WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO GET THEM BACK' ". The onesidedness is breathtaking.

But this can’t be true. The MSM said repeatedly that he wasn’t developing nuclear weapons ... only nuclear energy.

Yeah, right.

Obama needs to send Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a sternly worded letter of protest hand delivered via Fed Ex, registered mail return receipt requested.

That will show the Iranians we mean business. No more Mr. Nice Guy.

So I guess W was right about them after all ... and that egregious CIA report to the contrary, so beloved of the responsible Democrats in Congress, was wrong.

I wonder if the NYT will print a retraction for this article now....

As if we didn’t see this coming. Nuclear proliferation control is like gun control - only those that don’t want it won’t get it.

All the posturing by America and other countries will not stop a country from getting it.

Ahmedinejad, religious fanatic or "progressive" lefty?

From CBS-News, July 29, 2006:

Chavez Vows To 'Stand By Iran'
After Oil Talks In Tehran, Venezuelan Leader Called 'Brother' By Ahmedinejad

Photobucket

"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other. Chavez is a source of a progressive and revolutionary current in South America and his stance in restricting imperialism is tangible.'":

I think it’s going to catch on! The press not only accepts but defends whatever zero says so the term really fits. As a side note, the press, and the rest of the zero worshipers don’t have voodoo zombie bottles, unless a starbucks cup, or a bottle of evian water is the modern equivelent. (If that’s the case...this is one scary zombie movie we’re living in :-)

Who didn't expect that? Obama is a bitch and every leader that is a man knows it and doesn't respect him.

We should have probably worked harder to undermine Ahmadinejad rather than boost him up by calling him out. He only used that to bolster his support in Iran. Nothing riles up muzzies like examples of how the "Great Satan USA" is picking on little old Iran. We should have ignored him and covertly aided his internal supporters and worked to turn the people of Iran away from satanic Islam and towards Christ.

I yelled at the TV, as I often do, "WHY DON'T YOU JUST SAY 'WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO GET THEM BACK' ". The onesidedness is breathtaking.

The press can't stand it when people start to think for themselves. They think that the kool-aid drinking, momma's basement dwelling, bumper-stickered bought by parents prius driving, limp-wristed, angry, mini-winkie whackos, are the real America, and they like it that way because people of that stripe (i.e. useful idiots) are easily misguided by slogans and one-liners due to their true mental depth being less than a micron. The press is geting a wake up call now, but being true to liberal elitism and snobbishness, they choose to repeatedly hit the snooze button by continuing to push the same biased marxist tripe. Good. Let them. Every time they do, their credibility sinks further and further. The truth about them is getting out by their own actions and artful omissions...liberals lie, that's what they do, and that's all that they do, and it makes it much easier to finally drag these vile insects into out into the light.

I'm just sayin.

I think the liberal press is content competing for the left wing viewers. They loathe the right and have been able to make a decent living off of the left. I’m amazed that people like Ellen degenerate keep getting their faces on TV. There is always enough people to watch them to keep then fed. I guess that’s even biblical.
